Authentic stories are key to earning the trust of today’s audiences. Today’s WOM marketers need to tell and promote stories that capture imagination, appeal to emotion and allow people to draw their own conclusions in order to cut through the noise of the digital media landscape. Successful stories build communities by identifying and reaffirming the values shared by its member, placing the consumer at the heart of its narrative. Crowdsourcing video offers a new approach for telling your brand’s story.

2. Learn best practices for crowdsourcing long form video content.
3. Discover how companies are inspiring their community members to share compelling stories about their brand experiences.
