Day Two: Navigating Marketing Touchpoints Across Platforms

1:30 PM YouTube Your Brand: How to Go Viral with Video

In 2015 FortNine’s YouTube channel was dead. It was boring and contrived – just another check on the content marketing checklist. FortNine felt they were sharing their tiny number of subscribers with hundreds of similar channels. Sound familiar?

Fast forward eight months and FortNine’s YouTube channel has over 50,000 subscribers and 4.5 million organic views. Neil and Ryan show you:
• How to create branded video content on a budget
• How to get audiences to watch, share and engage with your channel by designing a content map that works
• How to monetize video content

The post-purchase customer experience can often determine whether a customer feels valued and becomes a loyal, repeat customer, or a one-time shopper. As consumer behavior changes, carefully crafting a post-purchase marketing program that reinforces your brand value and meets your customers’ expectations is critical in creating loyalty.
