The title of Abby's program is: Hygiene, Hub, Hero: Build your YouTube Content Strategy. Abby's presentation will focus on YouTube Insights and how to optimize your content for the second largest search engine in the world. Over 100 hours of video are added per minute to YouTube. How do you organize your content in a way that makes it easy for viewers to find and move through your video content? 

Hygiene, Hub, Hero is a YouTube content framework built to do just that. We'll review the framework, as well as some true standouts in the field who are doing it right. 

Abby has been working at Google in AdWords Sales for three years. First with small and medium businesses and now with large brands in the Home Durables category. She supports clients with their advertising across Google Search, the Google Display Network and YouTube, with a specialty in Search Ad Formats.
