YouTube Afternoon - Creating Relevant Content on YouTube
Sunday March 19, 2:30pm to 5:00pm
Join us for our first ever YouTube Afternoon.

YouTube's loyalty platform Juniper will start by discussing details of its program. Juniper is a monetization engine for YouTube creators, providing them with the tools to streamline YouTube channel growth within a community of highly engaged fans. Juniper provides YouTubers with free, end-to-end support creating and managing an online merchandise store to further monetize their personal brand. With the ability to track fan engagement data (subscriptions, likes, comments, and social media shares), Juniper incentivizes loyalty by awarding fans custom currency redeemable for rewards, like merch discounts, exclusive content, or personalized shoutouts.

Then we will be showcasing content by popular content creators followed by an insightful panel discussion on using YouTube as a platform.

Following the panels is a Meet And Greet.
