Digital Marketing Will Break Your Heart
We've all been there.
Several years ago, you and your organization dived head-first into digital marketing. You had the right intentions. You were so excited. Industry gurus told tales about "the new rules of marketing," the "social media revolution," and how "customer engagement" would change business rules forever. And they said you'd become the next blockbuster video if you didn't get with it.
But after years of investment and a never-ending carousel of digital agencies, experts, and gurus, you're ready to give up. You've got nothing to show for all your efforts except a lackluster performance, depleted budgets, and lots of hurt feelings. You feel taken advantage of. Everything was supposed to change with digital marketing. Things were supposed to be better with digital. Was it all a lie?
In this session, the Digital Marketing Strategy University instructor Brad McCormick will lay it all out on the table. Part keynote and part pep talk, Brad will explain how the culprit for your woes isn't Digital Marketing per se but rather "Shiny Object Thinking." He'll discuss how too many organizations fall for the latest technology fad that they miss the forest for the trees. He'll provide an actionable framework for connecting business & brand strategy to digital marketing programs and tactics. He'll show you how competitive positioning should inform your content and engagement strategies. And he'll explain why basketball provides the perfect formula to improve your team's digital performance.
By the end of Brad's session, you'll fall in love with Digital Marketing again.
