Keynote: Outside-In Marketing: Using the Correct Data for Content
Marketers have long sought to understand their audiences so they could target messages. Never before have they had such a rich source of audience data as they do today. The benefit resides in keyword research. For any audience segment and any stage in the buyer journey, they use keywords to find the content they need to make intelligent purchasing decisions. Join James Mathewson, distinguished marketer for search at IBM, to discover how marketers will use data in search campaigns, and how IBM uses data to guide its content marketing discipline from one end to the other. From market research to product marketing to messaging to digital publishing to digital analytics, keyword data is the natural resource IBM uses to drive the business results executives expect.

Panel: In Search of Cross-Channel Advertising
Search marketing is in the midst of a sea-shift from data and campaigns in silos to a more cross-channel approach. Keywords and match types are giving way to audiences, devices and attribution. When marketers think about cross-channel approaches they must also consider life-time value and retention of consumers. This panel explores the transition and the impact this shift is having on marketing strategies, the tools marketers use, the change in priorities of marketing departments and the challenges and opportunities that the transition presents.

Google’s changes leave search marketers on their toes. There have been a lot of changes during the past few years, but the most impactful likely occurred in 2015 when the company removed the ads running down the right side of the query results page. Join Richard Mastriani, director of SEO at Wyndham Hotels as he shares his experience and walks through a case study on the impact of the removal of right side ads on both local and organic search.

Panel: AMPing Mobile Attribution and Optimization
Did the Accelerated Mobile Pages project change the mobile landscape for search marketers? With Google serving more paid search ads on mobile devices, marketers have seen rapid growth of paid ad inventory above the fold. Some 60% of searches occur on mobile devices, but advertisers were opting out of mobile search or significantly reducing their bids due to poor performance. Join a panel of experts to discuss changes seen since being implemented.
