In the first half of this year across Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, there were a total of 2.3 million video posts by influencers and 3.9 million video posts by US brands.

They are numbers we only expect to grow as this dynamic marketing tool continues to prove its effectiveness across scale and time.

In this market, any publisher, TV network or creator planning a creative pitch, needs a competitive edge to show their audience is unique.

How to use data upfront to differentiate you from the pack, draw on key insights to make advertisers sit up and listen and plan post-campaign measurements to prove ROI were the messages I took to VidCon this year.

Now in its 20th year the annual conference which began as a US based event and has since grown to the UK and Australia.

VidCon doesn’t fit your typical conference mould, but then again an event for online video creators, fans and industry leaders the format was never going to be predictable.

The unexpected moments make VidCon memorable as much as the high level industry sessions. One of the viral posts from this year’s event in Anaheim, California, was a young child who went dressed as an influencer apology video.
