VidSummit is NOT a place where influencers connect with their fans. Instead, 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.
Who Is VidSummit For?
Video Creators & Influencers
Last year, we had a few of the top 5 YouTubers in the world (w/ 20 million+ subs) come to VidSummit. After sharing their strategies on stage, they would sit down and take notes furiously just like everyone else. 

Why?

It’s because at VidSummit, you get the most cutting-edge strategies of not just one person, but from dozens. If you make content online, whether it’s on YouTube, Instagram, Facebook or anywhere else, this is an event you can’t afford to miss. 

Marketers, Agencies or Team Members 
Involved in the Content Creation Process

The truth is it’s hard to be a video content creator. First you’ve got to write the content. Then you’ve got to film. Then it often takes dozens of hours editing it, posting it and distributing it. 

That’s why MOST content creators are dying to meet the right teams and team members to help them. They need your help as marketers, agencies and supporters (ie: channel managers, video editors, videographers, etc.) to help them reach their dreams. 

If you want to work with influencers or you want to do more video projects in general, then come to this event. At VidSummit, you will have access to more video content creators and influencers than anywhere else. Guaranteed.

(Plus, you also get to learn about the latest in video marketing and where you’ll get more conversions and better results than anywhere else. It’s all the stuff you CAN’T learn at school, online or in any courses because these influencers don’t share them anywhere else.)

Brands and Business Owners
If you’re a brand or business owner, you’ve got to understand this. Video content creators are ALWAYS looking for the right brands to do deals with. Brand deals are often one of their main sources of income.

What this means for you is VidSummit is the perfect place for you to connect with content creators to do deals. 

In most cases, you are ONE good partnership, joint-venture or collaboration away from setting a record year. I’ve seen it time and time again. With the right influencer working with you, your sales can grow by the millions within months - even if you’re just starting out. So...

How is VidSummit Different From Other 
Marketing Events And/Or YouTube Events?
  • 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.
Unlike other video marketing and YouTube events, VidSummit is NOT a place where content creators connect with their fans. Instead, VidSummit is where content creators come together to help each other. Without the fans at the event, content creators can share the truth of what they do - the truth they would never share online. 
  • ​Every speaker (58+ of them listed below) will be giving secrets that they’ve never shared before. At VidSummit, you get the step-by-step instructions on how to grow your YouTube Channel - in record time... How to turn subscribers into sales... And much, much more..
What’s more is you’re getting the latest of what’s working now. Not stuff from 3 or 5 years ago. You get to see what influencers are doing on YouTube, in their businesses and in video marketing now. The type of stuff you will never find online or in a course. 
Plus, THIS IS A ZERO PITCH EVENT. OUR SPEAKERS ARE HERE TO TEACH AND TO SHARE, NOT SELL. 
  • ​VidSummit is the video and YouTube industry’s highest level networking out there. You will meet dozens of people with millions upon millions of views every month. They are the ones making history as you’re reading this now - and most are just getting started. If you want to connect with high-level influencers, content-creators and other VIPs, this is where to be. There will be more deals being made during and after the event than you can imagine. You wouldn’t want to miss out! So...

      Fighting Copyright Abuse on YouTube

      Studios and labels have an army of lawyers who do nothing but scour YouTube for videos to demonetize. Worse, YouTube gives them tools to super-charge their search (tools individual creators couldn’t buy at any price). As a creator, it can seem like the deck is stacked against you – because it is. But that doesn’t mean you’re helpless. Far from it. Big corporations are actually terrified of creators exercising their rights. So let’s fight back. Learn about your rights under the Copyright Act. Get a taste for the tricks that an actual lawyer has used to beat every copyright claim, destroy DMCA takedowns, and get a personal apology from a major network.

      The Future is 91.5% Brilliant

      Our future is precisely 91.5% brilliant! 8.5% of it is...bad. OK, those may not be scientifically accurate numbers. But we have allowed ourselves to focus on and obsess about the 8.5% which is killing or current and potential success. We are approaching the greatest era in human history! Yet companies, organizations, families and individuals are approaching it with uncertainty, pessimism and even existential dread. It would be unwise to ignore the challenges. However, artificial intelligence, automation, robotics, and dozens of technologies are combining to become the greatest tools we have ever built. Humankind has a chance to solve earth-sized problems like world hunger, families will live decades longer, companies will build unprecedented wealth, and each of us can become more human. But we will not achieve this extraordinary future from a position of fear. The future doesn’t exist yet. Now is the time to update or mindset, enhance our focus and train ourselves to see our brilliant future!

      Could it be that your channel just sucks? - How to objectively audit your YouTube channel

      How do you know if your YouTube channel or channels are doing well? They may seem healthy from recent view counts but are they really reaching the heights they should be? Is it succeeding because of your strategy or in spite of it? And what if you oversee a large video team? How do you know if they are running your channels according to best practice? Using a real life case study, Tom will show you an OBJECTIVE framework that will let you see in black and white whether or not your channel is being run optimally and achieving its full potential, because when you are too close to your channel it's hard to judge it impartially and this can be fatal for a channel in the long-run. Tom will share his unique audit framework that he has used to transform the fortunes of some of the world’s largest YouTube channels. From branding and design to channel strategy, content production and video SEO this will cover every aspect of how a YouTube channel SHOULD be run.
