Win FREE Tickets To XMediaLab Video+Social – 28th March 2104

10 Seconds, that’s all you have to grab their attention….

You will never get a second chance to make a first impression!

Some stats show 80% of people that watch a video ad remember it, and 47% actually take action.

Video is one of the biggest drivers of Internet traffic today, and with social media spreading the content around faster than ever before, a startup would be mad not to ignore these two great strategies to build their user base and strengthen their brand.

That’s why X Media Lab are running this event, a master class featuring some of the world’s leading video, social media and mobile professionals.

If you’re not up to speed with “Video+Social”, you better get your skates on, for content
creators, corporate brands, developers and platforms, the opportunities it presents have never been greater.

That’s why Facebook was willing to pay a staggering USD $19 billion for WhatsApp and its 55 employees.

X Media Lab “Video+Social” is the ‘not-to-be-missed’ one-day event that can make the difference between failure and success from a video, social media, and mobile standpoint.

So what exactly is WhatsApp? Simple, it’s Mobile = Video+Social.

Content creators, corporate brands, developers, and platforms are both ever more intertwined and ever more in competition. The opportunities have never been greater or equally more uncertain.

We are in an era where companies with direct links to consumers (think Netflix) are producing thrilling dramas (eg “House of Cards” and “Orange is the New Black”) with ‘all-at-once’ release strategies, compete with ‘constrained publishing’ models (Vine, Snapchat,Twitter, Instagram), and where the ‘third screen’ has now become the first (mobile), oh – and then there’s YouTube.

Want to press pause and get a handle on this?

X Media Lab “Video+Social” – is one-day of high value insights and practical hands-on instructional masterclasses from some of the world’s best “Video + Social” experts, teaching you skills that you can apply to your business, creative project, brand, or career immediately.

This one-day will give you a 360 degree view of all you need to know and bring you completely up to date on how to thrive in a world where online video audiences are expected to double in 2016 and reach 1.5 billion people globally (Cisco).

IF YOU’RE AN ENTREPRENEUR: … you need to be there …
think online video audiences to double to 1.5 billion people globally by 2016 (Cisco).

    Yay, Im first :-) To kick this off, I want to learn how I can create engaging video content, simply and effectively that lets me tell the stories of startups and their challenges in growing their businesses in the remotest city in the world, Perth.

  3. Great to see events like this coming to Perth. I’d be interested to hear the speakers’ thoughts on getting into this space in a place where there isn’t currently a thriving community (or maybe there is, and I don’t know about it)

  4. Looking forward for this event in Perth, Events like these can help Perth to be in Tech Industry and answer to critics that Perth is dependent on the Mining industry for its economy.

  5. I spent less than 10 seconds reading the first 3 sentences of this article and decided to read on… CORTANA – you didn’t need a second chance to make a good first impression :-)

  6. Working in the disability sector, we have so many empowering, powerful and inspirational stories to tell. I want to do it right, through video, to inspire people with disability and their families to achieve their dreams and discover their abilities.

  7. If a picture is a thousand words, a video is a million.
    Not that I created this quote, but it would be great to win a ticket.

  8. Essential for any entrepreneur. Video, positioning and getting it out their is the only way to roll. Particularly as the first equity based crowdfunding platform for australia.

  9. I believe that video advertising on mobile devices is on the rise and will be the norm in the near future.

    I am actively involved in setting up an app where users can see live video feeds of premises they may be considering to visit. True live advertising!

  10. Looks like a great event – I hope to make it.

    Great to see online video animation generators like the Australian startup biteable.com coming online. Exciting times.

  11. The benefits of utilising video and social media to engage with your audience is massive. I’m most interested in learning how to harness this potential in a way that is strategic, authentic and memorable.

  12. Fascinating how video has gone from a wierd use of the internet (remember what everyone thought of youtube in the beginning) to a marketing must have.
