ReelSEO is proud to be a media sponsor for this year’s ClickZ’s Social Media and Video Strategies forum at the Search Engine Strategies conference and expo in San Jose CA, happening next week on Tues, August 11th. But more than just sponsoring the event, we’ll be offering some valuable coverage both during and following the event.  We hope to see you there.

ClickZ Social Media and Video Strategies Forum Details

I was excited to learn about this special one-day forum happening in conjunction with the SES conference and expo for a several reasons.  First, social media and online video are probably the hottest topics when it comes to online marketing these days.  Second, social media and its undeniable role in video marketing is a fascinating subject, and evident in the fact that SES is devoting an entire day to that interplay.  Lastly, I feel this particular forum is of significance to you readers due to the fact that social media plays such a significant role with regard to effective online video marketing.  They go hand in hand.

As Noah Weiner so eloquently put it in his recent guest post, titled “The Blurring Line Between Worlds: Humans, Screen Watching, and Social Media”

A quick video delivers a more three dimensional message than written words, and triggers easier consumption of its content. And now this content is easily shared with others across all manner of niche community conversation portals in the Social Media arena.

The ClickZ Social Media and Viral Video Strategies day will explore the successes and failures companies, celebrities, and politicians have experienced in the social sphere online and will deliver actionable tactics and strategies so that you can prosper from them. If you are attending SES, be sure to head over to the ClickZ forum on Tuesday after the keynote address.  If you aren’t yet signed up for either event, please do so.  I expect that there will be a ton of insightful information that will come out of the event and it would be great to meet some of you in person.

You can register for the entire SES conference and expo which will include access to the one-day forum, or you can register for the Social Media and Video Strategies forum separately for only $145 in advance, and only $185 on-site.  Register here.

Multimedia Coverage of the Event

I will be on hand at the show to offer coverage from the one-day event as well as for SES at large. Additionally, I’ve hired an excellent videographer to assist us in getting some great on-camera interviews with speakers, attendees, and exhibitors.  Larry Kless, my good friend and Streaming Media All-Star, will joining us along with Grant Crowell as part of the Reel team helping to cover the event.
