12:00pm- 1:00pm - Panel Discussion
Join AMA Alaska as we kickoff our 2019-2020 programming season with a topic that will intrigue every marketer; how best to use video in your marketing efforts. We all know that video is a tremendous way to communicate your marketing message, build engagement, and increase your conversion rates, but how you develop your video assets and where you use them requires both strategy and creativity.
Our first luncheon event of the year will feature five local video marketing experts who will discuss the ins and outs of video marketing. From conception to delivery, our panel will help you understand what to include in your video, how to utilize your content across multiple platforms, and the best way to maximize your budget to achieve the best campaign results possible.
If building brand awareness, increasing community engagement, or simply growing your market share are goals you have for the next year, this luncheon will provide essential knowledge that will help you accomplish those goals.
