Video for Digital Asset Management and Content Marketing Strategies

Video for DAM and Content Strategies

hangout-5-29-13

This week SEO Pros Helpline Hangout on Air is on video strategies with video marketing experts Greg Jarboe and Jonathan Allen who will join Terry Van Horne and Steve Gerencser and the panelists to explore the fundamentals of Video SEO and Content Strategies. The hangout will cover Must video go viral to succeed?; Video goals for Social Media Marketing; Digital Asset Management for Video and the role of Video in Content Strategy and the sales funnel.

In the recent Social Media Explorer report video is listed as one of the areas of interest for digital marketers. Like Mobile before it, Video has been touted in this way for the last 3 years yet it seems that marketers are not following through much like Mobile before responsive design was more prominent. Is technology, cost to implement or the learning curve what is prohibiting adoption of video?
