This December, we decided to shake up New York City in a way only the Chute team knows how. At the inaugural Visual Revolution Summit, we brought together some of the brightest minds in marketing and publishing to discuss the onslaught of visual media and the transformation of a passive audience to an active one — one that’s remixing and interacting.
The day was filled with thought leadership around the current trend and future potential of visual storytelling. We learned from Cheezburger CEO Ben Huh that building a brand in the social space takes 50% humor and 50% happiness, and during the MasterMind panel we saw that photos attract 104% more comments than the average post. Say Media CEO Matt Sanchez explained 50% of next year’s online traffic will be mobile. The issue? Those mobile pages are currently only worth 20% of desktop pages when it comes to ads. We’d love to hear what you learned from the event on Twitter, so feel free to Tweet us with #VisualRevolution!
To everyone who helped make the event possible: Thank you! We had an amazing group of speakers, moderators, supporters and team who worked around the clock to ensure the quality of the Summit.
And finally, as you’re planning for 2014, Chute can help you implement some of the ideas from the Visual Revolution Summit.
