Real Time Marketing: Time And Data Wait For No Brand

The marketing buzzwords are pouring as hot and heavy as ever, but this year Big Data, Customer Experience and Real Time Responsiveness landed squarely on the brand CMO’s desk. Massive online and offline inputs of transactional, behavioral and social data gush in real time. They demand rapid response and optimization of all messages. Ultimately, the promise of this big data waterfall is deeper understanding of the customer and a brand’s new ability to build consumer experiences that slip into and improve rather than interrupt consumers’s lives. At the second Mediapost Brand Marketers Summit we decode and demystify the buzzwords and see how (and whether) companies move beyond marketing fashion and put these concepts into practice.

Featured Speakers


At both a strategic and tactical level, the Summit will engage how data, real time systems and the new focus on the consumer experience are changing everything about marketing. We ask, what is a brand when it is now actively talking and modifying its message in real time with consumers? What kinds of organizations are needed to both walk the new analytics walk and talk the real time socially engaged talk all at once? What impact does big data and rapid response branding have on traditional campaign planning and creative, on attribution, on internal organization?

Once again the consumer is ahead of the marketer. She is hyper-connected and ready to tell you where she is, what she needs and even what he thinks of you. Is your brand ready to be as ‘always-on’ as your customer?                  

The Summit is designed to share leading edge information and experience in a think-tank environment. The experiences of leading marketers will be shared demonstrating how they have transformed customer acquisition, retention and interaction.

The agenda will cover a wide array of topics of crucial significance to today’s marketer, including:

·      The Role of the Re-engineered CMO

·      How Online Conversations Shape the Brand

·      Integrating Media and Creative in a Siloed Agency World

·      How to Connect the Dots in the Fractured World of Measurement

Attendees will also hear how a small brand used YouTube to become one of the top three brand channels, get a look at mobile ads that hit – and those that miss, and discover how to budget for experimental platforms.
