Jason Arend speaking on the future of Video Commerce at Streaming Media West 2009 in Silicon Valley

I’ve been invited to speak at the Streaming Media West conference in Silicon Valley on November 17. I’ll be discussing the successful multichannel video commerce strategy I developed for PFI and the branded video commerce portal developed by myself and Myke Bates. From increases in conversion rates to the fantastic results we have in the SERPS I will be covering the benefits of video commerce in online retail and the future of interactive video commerce.
