  • Reviews Are the New Advertising

    by Julie Perry, Mark Watson, Elessa Vavon and Sonia Castaneda

    “Haulers” have become an Internet phenomenon in the last couple years. Originally coined to refer to teen girls or young women who posted YouTube videos of themselves modeling the fashion and beauty products from their most recent “haul,” the larger pool of what we might simply think of as “YouTube Reviewers” is made up of “wo/man-on-the-street” reviewers in just about any niche under the sun—from tech gadgets and iPhone apps to interior decorating and baking. Successful videos can garner hundreds of thousands of views, and many major brands and retailers (JCPenney, Marshall’s and Forever 21 to name but a few) have found that giving these New Media, “shop-and-tell” types free merchandise, or in some cases, even paying the reviewers to feature their products, can bring about an ROI that rivals traditional media buying. This panel explores the variety of videos that are being made for this purpose and how both brands and even future reviewers themselves can get in on the action.

    Moderator: Julie Perry, VP Social Media & Audience Development at BLASTmedia – an agency that pitches YouTube reviewers and leverages this New Media trend for a variety of its clients.
