Event Details


Learn How to Utilize Video from Marketing Pros:

Video is a powerful medium that engages, informs and entertains. However, you don't have to be Spielberg with a blockbuster budget to promote your products or your business effectively. 

Astek is putting together a panel of video professionals who use or create video everyday, from small campaigns to large national releases, who will chat with attendees about how to begin using video. It's a casual discussion designed to answer your questions and concerns on this incredibly important marketing topic. 

You'll learn:

  • How to build a basic video marketing strategy
  • How to use video to market your small business
  • The elements of an impactful promotional video
  • Strategies and tactics for effective social promotion
  • Building your brand through the power of storytelling
  • How to optimize videos to be found through search

What's the Academy Think-n-Drink? 

The Astek Academy is a program by which our team educates clients and the community about marketing and technology. We love the digital world and teaching people how to use it. Oh, and we like to make it fun because people don't come for PowerPoint slides. 

The Think-n-Drink is our excuse to gather cool people together on the first Tuesday of every month, chat about a topic and consume a little vino while unwinding from a long day of work. Come to learn, network or simply hang out with the fun people at Astek! 


Have fun with this BlendTec video! These are created by marketers all the time.

Will it blend?
