You hear all the time: "You absolutely need videos for your business! They increase engagement, improve SEO, and help you make more sales.". But what is the best approach?

There are many approaches, so in a rare opportunity we've invited four speakers – the cream of the Austin video scene – to come and give us mini-presentations on the most important topics and answer your questions.

You may never get a chance to see these presenters together again! If there is only one presentation you can attend on video for business, make it this one. So much so that I wanted to call this "Everything you always wanted to know about video but were afraid to ask".
