|2:00pm||A Look At New & Emerging Advertising Formats
The emergence of the internet, blogs and social networks forced publishers to rethink their business models – adapt or die. The success of this new approach hinged not only on attracting readers to their websites but making their sites interesting enough to keep them coming back. This is where tools like real-time comments, live blogging, and content curation come into play. In 2012, 95% of news publishers increased their web traffic. Publishers like the Huffington Post, Yahoo!, The New York Times and BuzzFeed have seen tremendous growth. BuzzFeed drew more than 130 million unique visitors in November alone.
This enormous growth in web traffic has presented a wonderland of opportunities for marketers to engage with consumers, but the challenge for marketers today is to reach consumers in a way that invites them in, not distracts them from what they are doing. In this panel, marketing experts from leading brands and publishers will present new ways publishers are creating value for brands online. Emerging ad formats, native advertising, viral video, mobile, social and more will be explored.
|3:00pm||Keynote Session TBA|
|4:00pm||Content at the Speed of Social — Making Real-Time Content a Reality
As consumers exponentially adopt new communications platforms and technologies, marketers are tapping the potential of real-time marketing to drive pace and relevancy. To succeed in this environment brands will need to publish content “in the moment” that delivers experiences which encourage consumers to lean in. This new reality comes with its challenges, including creating content at scale. In this panel we’ll explore how to break through those barriers with new, more efficient models for publishing content and how these approaches will unlock greater potential for delivering agile and more meaningful experiences.
