How to Get a Web Series Cult Following

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Tuesday 15th March, 2011

11:15am to 11:30am (CST)

Original Web series viewership numbers now rival those of prime time cable television networks. But, on the Web where viewers have access to millions of videos of all different kinds, how do you get your content to stand out? And even more importantly, how do you get viewers to keep tuning in and really establish a cult following? Hear from industry leader, Ben Relles, whose expertise in programming and audience development will offer insight to best practices on how to create a Web series and engage viewers to get that "cult following." While all viewers seek great content, that isn't the only thing that will help build a loyal and engaged fan base on the Web.
