At the end of April, we packed our bags and headed down to sunny Orlando, FL for PLAYLIST LIVE 2018! If you’re not familiar, Playlist Live is one of the largest YouTube conferences, ever. Creators and fans from all of the country came together for three days of meet and greets, informational panels, and pool parties! You may have seen my IG takeover on @thepaidcrew where I showed you the behind the scenes of all the action.
While there, we had the opportunity to speak on three different industry panels: Knowing Your Worth, Building a Programming Strategy, and Using Your Youtube For Other Opportunities. We had a blast sharing tips, tricks, and industry insights with so many loyal YouTubers and fans! Aside from our own, my favorite had to be the Foodtuber panel. I absolutely loved listening to some of the creators who inspired me to start my own channel speak about their creative process and progression as an influencer. I actually got to meet Josh Elkin, one of my favorite foodies of all time!
We also hosted a bad ass selfie station in the lobby of the creator-only lounge and it was SO MUCH FUN! We snapped some quality pics, made new friends, and munched on some million dollar chocolate bars… YUM. We even got to mix and mingle with some of our fav creators, poolside. (Jealous?)
As video content becomes more and more in demand, we aim to stay at the forefront to keep you as up to date and in the know on industry trends and information as possible. Playlist Live was an incredible learning experience for us and just the start of our deeper dive into the YouTube community. We can’t wait for next year!
