This isn’t Clash of Clans or a 99-cent impulse buy game. Rosetta Stone needs to drive potential customers ultimately to a $199 language learning app. It takes multi-channel storytelling, everything from organic social presence to Facebook ads, TV spot brand building to mobile video that outlines feature sets. T.J. Hunter walks us through how the Rosetta Stone brand builds its product story and measures impact and results across channels.
- T.J Hunter, Director of Digital Marketing, Rosetta Stone
The three fastest growing channels for human communication in this century, mobile, social media and digital video, ran on parallel tracks for years and then finally converged. Most social network interactions and digital video consumption now occur on the signature personal communications device of the 21st Century. But what does this convergence mean for marketers? How has (or should) the migration to mobile impact social media buying strategies, messaging, goals? And clearly, social and messaging app video (Vine, Snapchat, Periscope) are miles away from TV or even online video as we know it. We set the table for this special Summit by asking the big question first. Are marketers realizing and making the most of this massive convergence of channels?
As social media drives ever more mobile traffic and we even see social media like Twitter integrated with Google search results, how is the game of discovery changing for marketers? The confluence of social media, apps, search and mobile is complicating and fragmenting every channel. Search used to be the dominant intent signal, eventually challenged by social. But mobile, location awareness, verticalized search via apps, deep linking and more are blowing up old assumptions about how content gets shared and discovered. How do brands get noticed now?

Traditionally, agencies act as filters for their clients. They identify the trends and technologies truly worth a marketer’s attention. We end the first day of the Mobile Insider Summit asking a senior agency executive to do just that for us - present two or three "picks" of startups, apps, ad formats or technologies that are more than just bright and shiny and should be on your radar into 2016.

Mobile video isn’t just about devices or screen size – it’s about behavior. Your video needs to be relevant to where the viewer is, what they’re doing, and how they’re connecting. Mindshare’s mobile and wearables lead shares his do’s and don’ts for marketers, his take on where the landscape is today (and where it’s going), and how adaptive mobility comes into play.

As web users continue to shift more and more to mobile devices, an increasing number of websites have started moving towards platform responsive/adaptive design - as a result, apps are no longer the only channel for reaching users on tablets and phones, providing brands an opportunity to deliver a differentiated app experience as a complement to existing websites. With this in mind, the PGA TOUR recently launched a redesigned iPad app reflecting this shift in mind set. This presentation will focus on the strategy and execution leading up to the release of the new app, as well as the subsequent fan response and key takeaways in the time since.

The second screen effect continues to be as enticing as it is elusive. We know consumers have their devices at hand, but these pesky humans aren’t doing quite what marketers and those second screen apps want them to do. What does it take to engage TV viewers on mobile? Are any calls to action on the first screen really resonating in second screen behaviors? Is synchronized messaging on Facebook and Twitter the answer? How effectively can the ad and social media networks intercept users on handhelds during prime time, or do they want to? We explore whether a two-screen dynamic is emerging that marketers can use.

From sports arenas to concerts, museums to nightclubs, marketers have woken up to the many ways in which mobile is their connection to the crowd. These platforms offer marketers much more event opportunity than signage and sponsorship halo effects. From driving ticket sales to live mobile-enhanced experiences to distributing live event content via social, smartphones allow much deeper integration with the audience. How are publishers and their clients pulling these pieces together and making the most of their captive audiences?
