A one-day conference focused on podcasting, livestreaming, video in New Orleans, Louisiana with Amy Wilson, Jen Goode, Jennifer Borget, Margaret Ables, and Natasha Samuel.
Content creators, bloggers, and influencers must all adapt and adjust to our ever-changing industry and new expectations. Are video and podcasts tools you should consider adding to your repertoire? According to the latest statistics, yes! 165 million Americans listen to podcasts now. Livestreams get six times the interactions as regular videos, and ten times the amount of comments. Two billion people are watching Facebook LIVE videos each day. And Instagram Stories? 500 million people watch what gets posted on those feeds as well.
The numbers don’t lie, don’t miss these opportunities to attract a wider audience. If you’re apprehensive about how to get started with livestreams and podcasts, we have experienced speakers that will share what and how they’ve been doing to take advantage of these platforms.
Our speakers will share how they adapted these new trends into their already thriving businesses. Brands, small business owners, and content creators alike can use video and podcasts to share high-quality, relevant content with a different kind of effort and ability that writing requires. If you’re not taking advantage of video and podcasting platforms yet, perhaps it’s time to explore both more. If you‘ve been listening to podcasts or watching videos and want to start creating your own, join our FLOCK in New Orleans!
