Automation in Influencer Marketing

As reliance on technology to streamline and accelerate digital transformation continues to sweep the marketing industry, many wonder if influencer marketing can be automated. In its current state, most influencer marketing remains manual and archaic in its own right, but with the next wave of technology, we are beginning to see the introduction of end to end business process automation. How can brands quickly and efficiently scale the power of creators in a time where content is decentralizing and advertising is shifting to within the content rather than outside of it?

Join CEO of BEN Group and digital entertainment and influencer marketing pioneer Ricky Ray Butler for a presentation on automation in influencer marketing today and the necessity of navigating this through AI and technology. From this session you will learn why the adoption of automation has been slow in influencer marketing, and how technology can be leveraged to solve the unique industry challenges, as well as the role of data-driven, efficient processes and infrastructure in achieving success in influencer marketing.

Reaching your potential as a creator business: Discussion with Nik Shaw

Creators start, manage, and grow their businesses. However, more often than not, they don’t have the tools to manage them or a community to discuss best practices. In this discussion, we’ll break down what it means to run a creator business: revenue streams and expenses, taxes, banking accounts and different capital structures for growth. We’ll get into the trade-offs of revenue - not every dollar is the same. And, we'll also discuss how you know when to save money or invest it back into your business.

Creators and those creator-adjacent will walk away from this presentation informed, empowered, and with a deeper understanding of what other creators experience. We will have Nik Shaw join and do a Q&A about his own experiences and why he personally decided now was the time to invest into his business vs. continuing to grow organically.

"How YouTube Hacks Happen - The REAL Reasons Your Accounts Could Be Stolen"

No one wants to lose access to their audience. But your Youtube channel is a target for account takeovers. As your platform grows, so do your potential vulnerabilities. Your profile, brand identity, and income could easily be at risk due to highly accessible and inexpensive hardware and software available to cybercriminals, as well as the knowledge to use these platforms nefariously and with a little bit of creativity. Brands, influencers, and industry professionals have become excellent targets for easy money due to the rise of social media and online content creation as a reliable source of income. 

 In this talk, an ethical hacker will show you how these hacks happen. Shannon Morse will demonstrate how an attacker could gain access to you, your audience, or both. She'll give you true stories of notable hacks, and you'll walk away with actionable and easy to understand concepts that will not only protect your accounts, but will help you keep your digital and personal life private. Many of the concepts in this talk will make your life more convenient as well, if you're willing to put in the effort today to automate security and privacy for years to come.

Create a Thriving Community with Live Streaming

Using Live streaming to connect with your community is a powerful strategy for any creator who wants to grow on YouTube and beyond. I used live streaming and community connection to grow my channel from 5K subscribers to 120K subscribers in 6 months. It isn’t something that happens by accident, it happens by intention. A creator needs to know themselves before the start Live Streaming. We will walk through how to dial in who you are as a streamer and how that allows you to attract the community that loves you and repel those that aren’t your people. Unlike VOD, streaming creates special moments to connect with your community if it’s done intentionally. This includes vetting mods, having community standards and chat rules, setting the community values so that your community teaches new members ‘how we do things’ and upholds those values. I can’t wait to walk through building your community through streaming and I know attendees will walk away with who they are as a streamer and community leader and what they want to create in their communities

Frequently Asked Questions

Who Is VidSummit For?
VidSummit is NOT a place where influencers connect with their fans. It's a place for Creators, Marketers, and Brands to come together to learn, network, and strategize.

How is VidSummit Different From Other Marketing Events And/Or YouTube Events?
VidSummit is where you become an industry insider. Without the fans at the event, influencers share the truth of what they do - the truth they would never share online. In other words, VidSummit is the only event where dozens of the top 1% of influencers show you how to get fans fast, build a brand and make millions from your content.
Will Video Replays of the conference sessions be available?
If you want to watch your favorite speaker again, or you're unable to watch the livestream Sep 28-30, you will still be able to view the conference sessions in the app. Replays will be available for purchase after the close of VidSummit. 
Will There be Live streaming?
Yes, 2021 will have Live Streaming through the purchase of a virtual ticket.  The virtual pass is only access to the Live Stream and includes all of the regular conference sessions. Replays (recordings) of the event will be available for a separate purchase soon after the close of VidSummit.
