With digital advertising taking up 22% of all ad spend in the U.S and 74% of the most effective B2C marketers citing engagement as their top goal, many traditional tools of marketing have become outdated. Hear from the tech providers behind today’s most engaging and effective ads and marketing campaigns on their thoughts and solutions for the present and future.

Patrick Keane is the President of Sharethrough, a Silicon-valley based tech company that powers “a native in-feed advertising ecosystem,” allowing brands and publishers to power ads that complement their site.

James Everingham is the CEO of Luminate, a Google-ventured company that incorporates images into the advertising space to increase levels of audience engagement.

Next, we have Lester Lee, VP of Customer Development at Chute–the visual marketing platform that empowers marketers to capture, manage, clear rights, publish, and promote content.

Finishing up the presentations is Tobias Peggs, CEO of Aviary–a visual experience company that pushes brands and publishers to seamlessly integrate ads into their existing content.

This future of visual advertising is just beginning. Watch the video above to learn more and join the Visual Revolution conversation on Twitter with #VisualRevolution.

Photo Hack Day 4 Wrap Up

We started off Photo Hack Day 4 weekend with an official pre-party here at Chute HQ. We had a great crowd come in and eat, drink, and strategize for the hackathon. Thanks to everyone who came out and made the event such a success!

Photo Hack Day itself was a blast. We loved working with the developers who used Chute to develop fun and innovative apps. We gave our top prize for the best use of Chute to Makeup Artist, a lifestyle app that lets users upload a photo and give their self a virtual makeover. It was awesome to see what developers and designers were able to put together in 24 hours, and we look forward to seeing which apps from this weekend will be released in the future.

If you want to relive the weekend or weren’t able to make it, check out the SlideChute gallery below for some of our favorite photos. You can also check out more photos from the event over at our Facebook page.
