THE UN-HOUSE AGENCY

Whether you are building an in-house agency by laying a new foundation or are working to remodel and reimagine your existing structure – relationships are essential. However, an in-house agency is only as effective as the people within its structure – and structure alone can’t solve it all. Amina Dilawari, senior director, integrated marketing, and Michael Rowland, senior director, creative services, will share how they are letting go of traditional ways of working to build a more collaborative and effective approach.

HOW ADT CRACKED THE SOCIAL CODE AND GREW ITS IN-HOUSE TEAM

Social and Content Marketing during the pandemic required many marketers to pivot and redefine what success looks like. ADT's social and content calendar was planned three months in advance, but the global pandemic changed the world as we knew it and pre-planned content was no longer relevant. ADT's digital brand team quickly pivoted into a real-time value exchange strategy that taps into what people come to social to do: engage, converse, and share. This new holistic content, social, and paid strategy led to continuously record-breaking months -- and the need to grow the team to support all of the manual work across real-time content ideation, social execution, and media optimizations.

IN-HOUSING FOR SPEED AND RELEVANCY: LESSONS LEARNED OVER A 5 YEAR JOURNEY

Five years ago, the PGA TOUR Marketing team started with a clean sheet of paper and asked ourselves one key question: What would it take to be able to execute at the speed and frequency that our fans expect in today’s world? That question became the beginning of a 5-year journey during which the TOUR in-housed the majority of its creative and media agency needs, transforming the PGA TOUR from a traditional client/agency approach to one of the leading innovators in professional sports marketing. Tom Kuhn, vice president of marketing, will share some of the key lessons learned along the way and what’s next for the TOUR in the continuing evolution of their in-house capability.
