Keynote Speaker
Chris Snider – Associate Professor, Drake University School of Journalism and Mass Communication

Session: How to Succeed with Video Marketing
By 2019, it is estimated that 80 percent of all Internet traffic will be video. The problem? Most of us don’t know how to make quality videos. Additionally, Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook algorithm updates makes it more difficult for marketers to advertise on the social media site. Drake University’s Associate Professor, Chris Snider, will provide tips and tools for making compelling videos using your smartphone. You’ll learn about core video techniques as well as apps and hardware to turn your phone into a high-end production machine. Learn how you can succeed on Facebook this year with creative advertising that actually gets noticed by users.
