John Cabot University 2-Day Workshop


Develop the marketing skills of the future: how to create and viralize promotional videos on Youtube, Facebook, Snapchat & Vine.

With Andrea Febbraio, Co.Founder Teads (formerly E-Buzzing)



Friday, October 16 and Saturday, October 17, from 9.00am to 6.00pm, at John Cabot University in Rome.

Workshop Description

As part of JCU’s and IFE’s commitment to innovation and to the development of practical skills that can be applied in the job market, we are offering an opportunity to learn the latest promotional technique: branded video advertising. Traditional TV advertising has long run into viewer saturation; initiated by the creation of the remote control and later exponentially magnified by the advent of new media, viewers are increasingly gaining control over what they watch, leaving advertisers to fight a losing battle for eye-ball attention.

Branded video content turns advertising on its head: these are videos that viewers want to watch and, even more importantly, want to share with their friends. One of the best examples of branded video content is the Evian Live Young campaign, created and viralized by Teads Labs.

Andrea Febbraio, Co-Founder of Teads, will show students how to become masters of Video Advertising, discovering the most advance seeding tactics and tools to produce a branded video content and make it viral in the Social Web. They will be introduced to the “10-Commandments-Of-Video-Advertising”, first presented at Cannes Advertising Festival in 2012 and since then improved with cutting edge research.

It will be a very hands-on workshop: students will be asked to create and viralize branded video content for some of the most famous global brands. The workshop will cover not only Youtube but also new platforms such as Vine , Snapchat and Hyperlapse, as well as Affectiva, Teads’ own proprietary technology developed with MIT to detect and predict emotion through facial recognition.

Learning Outcomes

99% of content on Youtube never gets more than 1.000 views, only 0.01% of videos break the 1M threshold. In only 2 days, students will learn how to produce branded video content and make it viral in the Social Web.

At the end of the workshop participants will:

  • Learn the tricks to make videos viral

  • Become Youtube/Vine Stars

  • Become Snapchat Ninjas

  • Learn how to create branded content
