In Episode 87 of the Engage Video Marketing Podcast, we interview Chris Strub, a travelling mobile storyteller with a passion for working with non-profit organizations. He is known as the Giving Day Guy who drives measurable increases in online donations for non-profits by hosting and producing live video content. I met Chris in Social Media Marketing World in San Diego and when I heard about his story I just knew I had to bring him to chat.

He shares with us how he helps raise millions of dollars for hundreds of charities through live streaming video. We also unpack what makes these events so impactful in moving people to take action and what you can do in your own business or non-profit to grow your own reach and impact. We will also learn more about his equipment and the tools he uses for his live streaming started and the gear you’ll need to get you started.
