Enabling Instant Video on Mobile

Mobile video is already the hottest buzzword among content providers and marketers alike and rightly so; One in three consumers watch video on their mobile devices, which means watching video on mobile is already more common than using devices to listen to music. There’s also mounting evidence that people who watch video on their smartphone are giving it their full attention. But with last mile inefficiencies, choked networks and a data cap conscious consumer base, how will you provide a video experience for your content and ads? In this session, we will look at some of the challenges and roadblocks and how we can solve them to provide a high-quality, on-the-go, media app experience to mobile customers with videos that start immediately with no buffering or stalling regardless of location or network conditions.

Storytelling Through Mobile

Terms like “the Year of Mobile” and “mobile-first” have become easy jokes for speakers at digital marketing conferences – and for good reason. 2015 was the year mobile searches forever surpassed desktop queries. That was our tipping point. But there isn’t mobile marketing in 2016. There’s just marketing. It’s one and the same. As marketers our focus should be around innovation, story, and the next technology development. Mobile is one of the vehicles to deliver the brand’s story. And the ones that do it best have found a way to make it engaging and interesting.
