I. MACY'S CASE STUDY (10:00-11:00am)
If there is Holy Grail in advertising - it's getting the right ad to the right consumer at the right time. It's a critical trifecta, and as ad industry execs can tell you it's no easy task. What is making this challenge easier is having a rich understanding of who we are marketing to. In this presentation, you will find out how Macy's captured insights and social behavior that went beyond traditional measurement, grew the Macy's audience, predicted significant ROI, and deciphered and empowered "socially-influential" customers to not only purchase, but endorse Macy's to millions more.

II. THE SOCIAL SHOPPER (11:15-12:15pm)
Find out everything you need to know about social shoppers-what they do, why they do it, and how they want retailers and brands to participate in their social world. See examples of retailers and brands that truly connected with social shoppers. Discover their terms of engagement with brands and retailers in multiple social channels like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and geo-location apps like FourSquare. You'll leave with a great understanding on how you can develop effective social marketing campaigns for the social shopper.
