YouTube bet big on “original content” – pouring $100 million into branded channels like Vice, Kick, The Onion and Pitchfork TV – and now the payoff is coming in views. Some channels pull in over a million views per week, while others are attracting well over 100,000 subscribers – signs that the channels have been able to engage viewers over the long haul. And that’s music to brand sponsors’ ears. Plugging into one of YouTube’s original content channels delivers a unique level of user engagement, and the accompanying sponsorships need to be more creative as a result. Join Laura Lee, YouTube’s director and head of content partnerships, East, execs from two of YouTube’s most intriguing channels – Machinima and DanceOn – and an experienced media buyer in a discussion about how this content is changing the business of online video.
