The Search and the Performance Revolution

Search engine marketing is the original, and most accountable, "performance" marketing vehicle in digital. But today, those disciplines and data are interwoven with all of the many channels where consumers flag their intent, and marketers can close the loop and track the customer journey all the way to the final sale. From Social and Native advertising to content marketing and e-commerce advertising, Search is now at the head of a table of performance-oriented media that must target, track and work together to complete a customer's journey.

MediaPost's Search and Performance Insider Summit makes those connections across search and other performance media. We explore how Search is being integrated with increasingly accountable media in Social, Display, Email, and Video to drive sales.

We will explore how marketers are building customer profiles and data that are unified and work in real-time data to respond to consumer signals and journeys. How brand content and messaging consistency matter…from the first search result to encounters on social platforms, Web site experiences, native and content marketing, paid and organic media.

Search marketing has broken from its silo and is now helping to drive performance marketing metrics and expectations across all digital channels.

MediaPost's Search and Performance Summit connects those dots that capture the consumer journey.

About Search Insider Summit

The Search Insider Summit is a three-day event that brings together the brightest minds in Search marketing to share leading-edge information and experiences in a think-tank environment, while exploring new technology, strategies and tactics for the effective use of Search as a marketing vehicle. For the Summit we bring in 50 top Marketing and Ad Agency buyers responsible for Search marketing strategies and budgets to network, debate and share best practices about marketing using Search.

Attendance for the Summits are capped to ensure conversations, learnings and overall experiences are intimate, productive and highly useful. Each day is comprised of high-impact content sessions in the morning coupled with unmatched networking activities in the afternoons. We return each evening with Cocktail receptions, fine Dining experiences, and After-hours fun.

The end result is a highly unique format that's intimate, inclusive and memorable on all fronts - an experience that allows everyone the opportunity to build REAL relationships well beyond that of a simple exchange of a business card.

The Search and Performance Insider Summit is brought to you by the MediaPost journalists and editors that produce Search Marketing Daily and the Search Insider, important sources of news and commentary for the search marketing community.
