Today’s Marketing: Classic Strategy with Modern Execution
Monday, Oct. 16, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
Gardiner Centre, Signal Hill Campus
Combine classic methodology for developing a marketing strategy with a tactical program that uses modern marketing solutions, and analyzes results using data and analytics.
The truth is, the fundamentals of marketing have not changed very much since the days of the Mad Men-style ad agencies of the 1960s. The number of challenges remain about the same: what is your objective; how do you plan to achieve it; who is your target audience; what value can your product offer?
What is new is that the number of solutions has grown exponentially.
Until the 1990s, most marketing solutions involved TV, radio, newspaper, billboards, an event, a mail drop…and that’s about it. Today, your marketing tool kit might include a TikTok, a web takeover, pre-roll, Facebook, paid content, Google ads, search, AI, augmented reality, stunts, geo-fencing, and many more tools being created every day.
This session is designed for people who are responsible for marketing for their organization, and are interested in identifying more modern tools. Over he course of two days, participants will explore marketing strategy fundamentals, ways to find and evaluate creative ideas, and how to use some popular digital and social media analytics.
