January 2017 Lunch & Learn and Call For Entries

Digital Marketing – It’s All Measurable & Accountable


Digital media and digital marketing have changed the marketing and advertising game for clients.  The shift from unmeasurable to measurable and pragmatic, result-oriented marketing programs has been in high gear for quite some time, and small to medium sized businesses need agencies that can be master implementers of all things Digital.  If your agency hasn’t developed practical, savvy skills in Content Management, Facebook Advertising, Google Adwords, Social Media planning and execution, Amazon Storefront Development and the database, IT systems process, and shopping cart management skills that drive success, then you will be left behind.  Creative, branding and positioning still matter, BUT, you must be agile at translating any work done in those spaces into practical, pragmatic results that yield brand loyalty, strong fan bases and finally, SALES.   This talk will present the perspective and needs of the client, with the intent of preparing agencies to anticipate and respond to the new marketplace.
