However, the explosion of choice has complicated the lives and practices of marketers, creating massive challenges for effective integration.

HOW USG LIFTED THE WEIGHT OFF THE BACKS OF DRYWALL INSTALLERS
Drywall installers carry the weight of their jobs on their backs. Weight slows productivity, reduces installation speed and costs installers money. USG launched the “The Weight Has Been Lifted 2.0” and rather than focusing on the benefits of its new lightweight product, it demonstrated and quantified the impact that not using it would have over the course of a job. Attendees will learn how USG leveraged print, digital, mobile, social, in-store and event marketing to take the “weight” off their customers.

FIND THE AUDIENCES YOU’VE BEEN MISSING
Focusing on audience has tremendous advantages, particularly when one looks beyond demographics. The fluidity of experiences across platforms quickly enables new media models that move beyond contextual and behavioral targeting to reach valuable consumer segments. But the challenges are not insignificant, particularly when evaluating cross-platform strategies.  This session will discuss an exciting and innovative way of reaching audiences across online, mobile and TV.
