WhatTheyThink today announced the opportunity for industry professionals to attend a free printing industry educational webinar titled Why Personal Videos are the Next Generation in Cross-Media. The session will be moderated by WhatTheyThink Senior Editor Cary Sherburne and held Wednesday, January 11th, from 2:00 to 3:00 pm EST (-5 GMT).
No-charge registration is available by visiting WhatTheyThink and selecting the Webinars tab.
“Personalized videos are the latest buzz in cross-media communications,” said Sherburne. “This session will explain how it works using an integrated campaign that promoted PODI’s AppForum 2012, called the Herman campaign. The chief architects of the program will be available to answer questions first-hand. This is a session you will not want to miss.”
Sherburne will be joined by:
Ben Dyon of DME Studios, who will discuss the importance of a great idea – a critical point missed by many marketers. Ben will explain how XMPie was used for the basic cross media framework and how the Flash personal movie is created. He’ll illustrate how important it is to use an Event Management Touch Point Process to manage a multi-part campaign for audience acquisition like “Herman.”
Larry Zusman of XMPie, who will introduce the new PersonalEffect Video – what it is and how it enabled creating the “Herman” campaign without custom tools or programming.
Dave Erlandson of PODi, who will review the campaign objectives, audiences, channels utilized, expectations and first results.
“WhatTheyThink is pleased to join PODi in bring this important session to our audience,” said Randy Davidson, President, WhatTheyThink. “This is a not-to-be-missed webinar for savvy print and marketing services providers who want and need to stay current with the latest in cross-media trends..”
Attendees will be able to participate in a live question and answer session to get the most from the experience and will be able to view and listen to the presentation using a standard Internet browser with audio streamed via computer.
