    Title: How to Get Better Video Metrics

    Moderator: Jason Alcorn, MediaShift
    Panelists: Adam Neuman, Fusion Media Group; Neil Solanky, NowThis; Meryl Ayres, Wistia

    Are you putting more resources into video? As publishers increase the time they spend producing content for Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and other video platforms, they need better insights into what works and what doesn’t. This online panel will include a discussion by top publishers who are at the forefront of using video metrics to drive better engagement with their audience.


    We’ll discuss the reliability of video metrics and how to go beyond basic view counts to metrics such as over- and underperformance, recirculation and benchmarking. We’ll also hear tricks that leading publishers use to extract the most value out of the analytics tools they use in their own organizations.

    This free online panel is sponsored by Parse.ly. Parse.ly empowers companies to understand, own and improve digital audience engagement through data, so they can ensure the work they do makes the impact it deserves. All attendee emails will be shared with the webinar sponsor.



    Presentations will be available to participants.

    Who should take this training:

    Journalists, editors, community managers, marketers, publishers, non-profits, and content creators and video producers interested in learning about video metrics.

    Date and Time: Jul 27, 2017 at 1 pm ET / 10 am PT
