The Future of Media: Social, Mobile, and Emerging Platforms

If 2016 was a watershed year for the marketing and media industries, 2017 is where everything has been turned upside down. Digital media and emerging technologies continue to drive every aspect of brand marketing and the marketing funnel in general, yet the tactics and channels that once worked, are losing traction, while emerging media and technologies that were recently untested and gimmicky, are now proven vehicles for reaching consumers in new and exciting ways. Mobile has become the platform of choice for consuming media and entertainment; brands are publishing more original content than ever; digital video continues to challenge television. But the strategies, digital toolsets, and media, behind these efforts continue to evolve. Lean in and learn how today’s foremost brand marketers are using new technologies and embracing emerging platforms like Virtual Reality, Snapchat, and Live Video, and Messengers.

The New Bull Market in Programmatic Advertising

Programmatic advertising is re-inventing how all forms of advertising are being bought and sold. Not unlike the digital transformation of the financial services industry and the growth of online trading in the 1990’s, advertising — including digital media, print, outdoor, radio and television — is now being “traded” electronically on advertising exchanges, seamlessly matching “bids” with “asks,” no differently than how Wall Street traders buy and sell stock on the New York Stock Exchange or NASDAQ. Programmatic advertising platforms are also enabling brands to use first and second party data to target their consumers and qualify their prospects with incredible efficiency. How is programmatic advertising changing the marketing industry? How are the smartest brands in the world leveraging programmatic advertising to their advantage? How is programmatic advertising changing the brand-agency relationship? How much further can this bull run? Lean back and learn how the smart money is investing in programmatic advertising.
