The History of Video Marketing Part 1: Revolution [2014 ReelSummit] #reelsummit

The 2014 Reel Summit taking place today and tomorrow at the Hotel Nikko in San Francisco. This two-day conference is the only industry event devoted entirely to online video marketing for marketers and content creators who are serious about the (r)evolution of digital video marketing. The event is sponsored by ReelSEO and brings together inspiring brands, marketers and industry thought-leaders to share cutting-edge knowledge and advanced training and best practices on video production, online video advertising, brand management, e-Commerce and much more. ReelSEO welcomes video industry leaders YouTube, Vice, Vimeo, Cisco, Buzzfeed, Pixability, Brightcove, JW Player, Tubular, CinemaSins, and many others to learn from each other and celebrate the world of online video marketing.


As YouTube marketing expert Greg Jarboe says, this video, "An Illustrated History of Video Marketing Meet the Screens", produced by Bonfire Labs, illustrates that online video has grown, matured, and become mainstream.
"So has its audience", says Jarboe. "What was once the domain of the cutting-edge few has now become so common that it’s transformed how the world interacts with the web. Companies that never thought of using video now realize it’s the best way to communicate with their customers, build their brands, and educate and inform stakeholders both inside and outside of their organizations. With this new audience comes new challenges and new possibilities."
This year's keynotes include:
