CANNES – Since its launch 13 months ago, AOL has grown its “Makers” series to 40 million video views, with the number of views rising month over month, says Maureen Sullivan, Senior VP and General Manager Lifestyle Brands and Women’s Content at AOL during an interview with Beet.TV.
Makers is a joint video project between AOL and PBS and tells the stories of pioneering women from Gloria Steinem to Hillary Clinton in a series of professionally produced, short, documentary style videos. The series has been exclusively sponsored by Unilever’s Simple Skin Care brand since its inception. Sullivan said many viewers will often start by watching one video and then stay and watch six or seven more.
