Event monetisation & video sponsorship opportunities
Last year our customers asked us more than any other question - how can I get more sponsorship through my virtual events and how can I monetize the Glisser platform? We listened...

The team at Glisser have created and just released a feature that we are incredibly proud of - because it gives you more sponsorship opportunities and more chance to monetize your event.
We still have our e-booths which our customers are still very much enjoying using, but we now also have the chance to add a video interstitial before every single virtual event session.
This can be a different video before each virtual event session - so you choose what promotional video goes before which session. As well as monetization and sponsorship opportunities, why not use this video marketing opportunity to advertise your own upcoming events or content? You can use these tools to help yourself, as well as help your sponsors.
These videos and images will amplify your clients brand and messaging, and can even drive traffic to specific URLs. They can be highly targeted and measurable too.
The reason we're really excited about this particular feature is that our customers have told us that they would be able to sell sponsorship of a single video interstitial for up to £7,000. So you would immediately not just cover the cost of your Glisser investment, but you would actually already be making it a returnable investment too.
In addition, they've told us that selling exclusive access to all video interstitials across an entire virtual event could generate sponsorship for up to £24,000.
So I would say this pretty much makes it a no-brainer! Our new video interstitial sponsorship feature is an absolute must-have to help monetize virtual events, certainly for all commercial conference companies out there and I'm quite sure many other event planners too.
It's super simple to set up video or image ads within Glisser - check out this support article for more information.

In the back end of Glisser, an event's "Topics" function very similarly to Rooms. When you add a topic, it creates a new tab to add slots into, just like a room would. When editing a Topic's slot, you would add functions that are very similar to how a normal room's sessions would work. So what are the differences?
Your event is over... now what? Your Zoom Meetings are closed. Your event sessions have been ended. People have already turned off their computers. But no matter what, your attendees will always want to refer back to your content days, sometimes weeks after your event ends.
