- Get Inside Your Customer's Head: Leveraging Big Data: While most marketers today are well-versed in the metrics of their online marketing channels, far fewer are leveraging their "big data" across all digital marketing channels for cross-functional insight into customer behavior, to gain efficiencies across all channels, and to grow traffic and revenue.
SES Toronto 2013 is also offering an early-bird savings of up to $300 for attendees who register for a conference pass by May 9.
On the last day of SES New York 2013, SEW interviewed Andrew Goodman, an SES Advisory Board Member and the president of Page Zero Media, about SES Toronto 2013. He discussed how much the industry has changed in the past year.
"The SES Toronto programming reflects how digital marketing continues to expand," Goodman said. "The conference is an opportunity to hear experts present their latest case studies, as well as time for specialists to tell us what tactics have been working well in their arenas.”
As always, I should disclose that SES Toronto is a client of my agency. But trust me on the breadth and depth of this year’s conference agenda.
