Evolution of video contest marketing at Cisco

Contest Many organizations, both B2B and consumer, consider running video contests to promote products, services, and ideas. But until now, it has been difficult to get accurate metrics.

Anyone considering a video contest needs to study this showcase of best practices and the overall impact of social media video contests.
