Streaming Your Way to Marketing Success

Posted on by

Marketers across industries, from Fortune 100 companies to small businesses, are facing the same problem: How can we rise above the noise and get our message through to our audience?

A recent study by the University of California, Davis, revealed that the average person is exposed to 100,000 words every day — the equivalent of an entire novel. It’s more challenging than ever to deliver a message that not only engages your audience, but that they’ll retain and recall later.

This is the challenge that Ustream’s David Gibbons addressed in our webinar “Streaming Your Way to Marketing Success,” co-produced by MarketingProfs.

Watch the webinar recording to learn

  • Why marketers can look to television —particularly live television — as a role model in engaging audiences
  • How live video outperforms recorded video in terms of average viewing time
  • How Salesforce combined live video with social streaming to share its CEO’s keynote address with 50,000 people around the world — and LiveAd to capture new visitors
  • How Sony used live video to broadcast the PS4 launch event to a worldwide audience of 8 million viewers — in eight different languages simultaneously
