Problem solved. Come to Designbox on January 22nd for Going Viral: Making and Distributing Online Video and learn how to attract and engage clients, customers and fans with online video.
This engaging and collaborative workshop will change the way you think about viral video, teach you an original framework for coming up with a video strategy that resonates with your audience, and show you how to quickly and effectively create and distribute video for the web.
Here is what past attendees have to say about Going Viral:
The “Going Viral: Making and Distributing Online Video” workshop helps demystify the process of creating disruptive viral content and illustrates that going viral is much more than just dumb luck. Arik “gets it” when it comes to what’s memorable and engaging in the new and emerging world of online media. His passion for the subject shows and I would (and have!) recommended him as a truly credible authority on the creation of content that resonates with people! — Product Marketing Manager, B2B Software Company
This is a great course on the subject, definitely hands-on and provides: 1) great resources to produce the videos, 2) insightful strategies for going viral, and 3) highly proficient approaches for delivering creative results. I would strongly recommend Arik and his course to assist in developing video strategies to improve any business. — Founder & CEO, Online Marketing Agency
Arik has a great way of presenting information. I always felt engaged and not like I was sitting in a lecture. Attending the workshop not only introduced me to videos, but has also inspired other marketing ideas that I plan to put in place for my business immediately. I certainly have a new found respect for marketing with video after this workshop. I’m planning on taking another one of Arik’s classes soon and would highly recommend anyone interested in video on the web to attend. — Founder & Lead Designer, Graphic Design Firm
Attending the Going Viral Workshop is definitely time well spent. From the moment class began, I was engaged by the conversational teaching approach of weaving stories from real-life examples throughout the session. Attendees were introduced to basic and advanced viral marketing concepts through the Five Ts — commonly shared traits of successful virals — as well as, the technical side of production. He actually produced, edited and posted a live video in class. I’m looking forward to practicing what I’ve learned and would definitely participate in another workshop with Arik. — Media Sales Executive, Independent Consultant
