In today’s digital era, a fashion show does not last for only fifteen minutes. It is re-watched and re-experienced continuously by fashion lovers around the world. And in the wake of the pandemic, we’ve seen the digitization of fashion shows accelerate and social media become a necessity for brands to stay engaged with their global audiences. As a result, brands are no longer looking to create impact in confined, static moments, and instead thinking about how to stay continuously engaged and connected with their audiences digitally.

Based on the Launchmetrics’ report in partnership with YouTube, this webinar will take a deep dive into strategies and best-in-class examples for amplifying the performance of long form video content over time. We’ll examine the tips, tricks and techniques of brands who have gone digital first and evaluate the power of YouTube as a mechanism for long-term success.

What to expect:

  • YouTube’s best practices – data insights and brand case studies highlighting video strategies that led to increased views, engagement and Media Impact Value.
  • The key takeaways and a strategy roadmap for marketers to ensure longtail success of your video marketing strategy.
  • The key elements for amplifying your brand message, including collaborations and choosing the right Voices.
