DIY Video: Tips From the Experts

Video is becoming increasingly important, especially with Facebook favoring it heavily. Some even speculate that Facebook is trying to take down YouTube.

But video is expensive right?  How can you do-it-yourself?  And be successful?

Each panelist at this NIM event not only has decades of experience, but has also kept up with technology and is willing to offer tips and pro secrets… because that’s how we roll here at NIM.

The four speakers will cover a wide variety of topics including:

  • How to tell a heartfelt, connected story
  • Corporate and personal video strategies
  • DIY videos using smartphones
  • A photojournalistic approach to videos
  • How to keep a video short and sweet

By 2017, video will account for 69% of all consumer Internet traffic, according to Cisco. So get ahead with social’s new trending strategy!
