The ANA Digital & Social Media Conference is a must-attend event for anyone who is trying to navigate their brands through this ever-changing media landscape. Digital media has become a part of consumer’s daily lives and they have become accustomed to viewing content and connecting with people wherever and whenever they want. Social media, content marketing, and native advertising have especially exploded in the last few years. Despite this rapid growth, clients have many questions and their issues include measurement, agency selection, internal org structure, and relinquishing control to the consumer while trying to influence the dialogue.
