It is no secret that multichannel consumers spend more, shop more frequently, and are more brand loyal. To target these customers, marketers must develop the right marketing mix combining new and traditional channels to deliver an interactive and engaging experience in whatever medium their customers prefer to use. However, the explosion of choice has complicated the lives and practices of marketers, creating massive challenges for effective integration. This event will showcase how top marketers develop, execute, and evaluate their integrated marketing communications strategy.

COCA-COLA LETS FANS DECIDE THE ENDING OF THEIR BIG GAME CAMPAIGN
After their award-winning Polar Bowl campaign in Super Bowl 2012, Coca-Cola knew they had to up the ante for 2013 and set out to create an interactive fan experience like never before.  The 2013 "Coke Chase" Super Bowl campaign centered around the idea that "You decide the ending", giving fans and consumers the opportunity to choose how the story ends on the world's biggest stage, the Super Bowl. Hear how Coca-Cola gamified the Big Game with content across broadcast, digital and social with calls to action for fans to participate and engage with the brand before, during and after the game.

MULTISCREEN MAYHEM: CREATING ENGAGING CONTENT ACROSS MULTIPLE SCREENS
More consumers own upwards of 4 connected devices, relating with content in a way that was never before possible. While marketers are poised to reap the benefit of more touchpoints across screens, there is still little understanding of the best ways to engage consumers and guide the user experience across multiple screens. Microsoft’s Cross Screen Engagement Study will shed light on how marketers can provide flexible, portable, engaging content that will resonate across devices.

DOMTAR’S PAPERBECAUSE CAMPAIGN: BEHIND THE SCENES OF A PAPER MOVEMENT
In this digital, environmentally conscious age, paper was getting a bad rap. As North America’s leading maker of copier and printer paper, Domtar knew it had to do something about it.  But with a limited budget, a broad consumer advertising campaign wasn’t in the cards. So Domtar is fighting back with an integrated effort targeted to opinion leaders and purchasers of large volumes of paper. This campaign uses a combination of digital, social, viral, video, PR – and, of course, print – to send a powerful message. Paper: Because is personal, emotional, creative, memorable, effective and yes, sustainable. It’s become a movement that’s changed opinions about paper and, in the process, created preference for the Domtar brand.

MARKETING DOESN’T WORK IN A SILO… SO DON’T MEASURE IT THAT WAY
Most companies today measure their cross media activities in silos. Instead, marketers need to crack the code to gather the value of their marketing tactics, their impact on short and long term value, the correct attribution and synergies, and how to use this information to optimize and predict future business performance. This session will teach marketers how to achieve measurable and incremental value from their marketing investments while sharing media benchmarks and client case studies across a number of industries.

VICKS: HOW TO SELL THERMOMETERS WHEN NO ONE GETS THE FLU
A child’s comfort and safety is a mom’s number one priority. During flu season, moms are always looking for quick and reliable ways to detect symptoms early to save their child the discomfort of becoming sick. To introduce Vicks’ new Behind Ear Thermometer, Kaz had to overcome our mom’s innate belief that there’s no reason to change from her current, traditional thermometer that already fulfills her needs to take a measurement in a brand new location. Learn how Vicks created a fully-integrated campaign featuring a hyper-targeted mobile experience that successfully drove moms into retailers to purchase the new thermometer during the lowest flu season on record.
