Search Becomes Personal

Search increasingly influences more decisions with help from artificial intelligence, machine learning and mobile, which have become the foundation for some of the most powerful tools in advertising and marketing. The programmatic technology and signals based on millions, if not billions, of data points assist in creating personalized text- and image-based experiences across search engines, retail, brand, and publisher sites.

At this MediaPost Search Insider Summit, experts will share best practices on how to improve and customize the consumer experience when creating image-based product listing ads; scaling search campaigns on niche search engines, social or retail Web site; integrating search with video and television ads, and more. From using search as the backbone for omni-channel campaigns that personalize the experience, to finding the key to focus on audiences and experience over message.

For marketers, search data becomes more about personalizing the customer experience, rather than determining the number of advertisements to serve. It becomes more about tying together search with other media such as video, social and television across retail Web sites, marketplaces and in stores to create a cohesive online and offline experience that identifies the next purchase. The platforms now learn from consumers willing to interact with them and so will you.

 “I would trade 100 SES, Ad-Techs, or other “trade shows” to be at one SIS.  The relationships built, and the thought provoking conversations which you are a part of are invaluable.  It’s awesome to see that the Summit recognized and focused on how search really was more than the “click” or SERP.  Looking forward to the next one!”
Bryant Garvin, Program Manager, Paid Search, Choice Hotels International
