Harnessing the Full Power of Video Content: Essential Insights From a Panel of Industry Experts

Hosted by Manto Films

What’s it all about?

It is accepted by most working in digital marketing and communications that video is one of the keys to grabbing people’s attention online and getting those all important messages across.

Video content is constantly evolving and whether you’re new to using video or have been using it for years, it’s a huge challenge to stay on top of what the best formats are for you and what’s the best way of using video to connect with your specific audience.

Should we be posting videos every day/every week/every month? How long should our videos be? Should we be spending £500/£5000/£50,000 on a video project? What style of video is right for us? Should we be on TikTok?

We have gathered together an expert panel covering a range of industries and sectors all of whom have seen real success through how they’ve implemented video as part of their marketing strategy. They’ll be answering these questions and giving invaluable insights into what’s worked for them and how they see things changing over the coming months and years.


Who would benefit from the event?

This event is aimed at anyone involved in digital marketing and comms. It’s widely accepted that video is a key part of any organisation’s digital strategy and this event is aimed to help you understand the range of video content (from user-generated/homemade all the way up to £100k TV style brand campaigns), what works for whom and how to tailor them to fit your specific needs and reach your specific audience. You know those questionnaires you fill out to find out the right breed of dog for you and your family? It’s kind of like that. But with video.
