CONTENT CREATION IN THE AGE OF INFLUENCERS

Consumers are increasingly craving relatable content to guide their purchases, and they look to social media and digital creators for their inspiration. A brand’s relationship with those content creators, who have the power to reach consumers and make real connections, is a crucial part of getting their message heard by the right audience. This session will highlight how the landscape of upper-funnel content creation has evolved at Nationwide, becoming a pillar in the brand’s digital marketing strategy.

SAFELITE AUTOGLASS: IF YOU CAN'T MEASURE, DON'T DO IT

How do you create the ability to measure every digital interaction and then begin to use the data to make better decisions? In this session, Safelite AutoGlass will share how they’re leveraging data to optimize their digital advertising investments and improve their customer experience. From understanding what the path to purchase really looks like (think tangled headphone cord rather than funnel), to how people jump from phone to Web and back again, you’ll learn what Safelite has done to make sense of the data and take action to improve performance.

DSW: THE ART OF SOCIAL SURPRISE, DELIGHT AND SELL

While the tools and platforms may evolve and change, social channels still give brands a way to build and engage communities that other channels can’t. From its experimentation with SnapChat and Instagram Stories to its Facebook Holiday Chatbot and use of canvas ads, DSW will share how it’s using each platform to surprise and delight its community and build a compelling brand narrative so they can experience the brand—and ultimately buy—in fresh and unexpected ways.

CONNECTED AND CONVERSATIONAL: DIGITAL ADVERTISING SOCIALLY AND BEYOND

Building direct relationships in a digital landscape dominated by social platforms is more important than ever. The shifting sands of communication technologies require advertisers to pay close attention to evolutions in audience behavior.  In this session, the presenters will explore how frictionless mobile technology is moving brands “post social,” into a conversational world where platform loyalties are in constant flux. Discover how chatbots, conversational commerce, and contextual messaging are opening up new opportunities for advertisers and the customers they serve.
