Morning Keynote

Geoffrey Ramsey
Geoffrey Ramsey
Co-founder & CEO

TOPIC: Mapping the Digital Landscape: A Strategic Guide
With social networking, online video, widgets, viral campaigns, the latest search applications and a renewed interest in mobile advertising, marketers have a lot of digital options to choose from--and to confuse them. In this data-packed, but highly engaging presentation, eMarketer CEO Geoff Ramsey will talk about the size and growth growth of digital media overall and detail which trends and tactics are the most important in terms of shaping the future. Attendees will come away with a solid understanding of how digital fits into their overall media strategy, how to address the challenges ahead and how to avoid costly mistakes.

Afternoon Keynote

Vice President, Sales and Marketing Group,
Director, Integrated Marketing


TOPIC: End to End Marketing Online: A Fundamental Shift
The erosion of traditional media has caused a marketing revolution and a fundamental shift to consumer centric marketing that relies on a more personal experience to build brand loyalty. With access to an unprecedented amount of information, consumers can now choose how, where and what information they want to consume making it more challenging than ever for corporations to rise above the noise. To succeed in today’s digital world where the online community is subdividing into specialized audiences and growing exponentially, companies must deliver personalized and unique experiences from the moment a customer begins their search online to the moment they make their purchase. Creating a deeper level of engagement by providing a relevant experience for each customer across multiple touch points will be priceless in establishing brand loyalty. In this keynote, we will explore how companies can leverage a comprehensive suite of online efforts as a cost-effective vehicle for marketing, enabling greater scale and reach by developing ongoing relationships with customers and motivating them to take action.

Author of Groundswell: Winning in a World Transformed by Social Technologies

TOPIC: Creating A Social Strategy That Will Work
There's no doubt that social technologies like blogs, social networks, and YouTube are alluring -- but most companies today deploy them as one-off, point solutions, rather than as part of a coherent strategy. This presentation will provide you with a framework of how to think about social technologies, from understanding how your customer participate to how you can build a lasting relationship that results in concrete business metrics. The session will also provide practical advice on how to get started and ways to integrate your social strategy into your overall Internet effort.
