Editor's Notes : 8 Free Integrated Marketing LessonsSeptember 2013 By Thorin McGee
What's the future of marketing? What can you do with augmented reality in direct mail and print marketing? How do you optimize print, email and marketing automation strategies to engage customers?
We can't necessarily fit every topic we want to cover in this monthly magazine. That's why we held an online event on Aug. 15: The Integrated Marketing Virtual Conference and Expo. The entire conference is now available for free, on-demand, at integratedmarketingconf.com.
It turned out to be a great show. Brian Solis delivered a keynote that lit up Twitter: "What's the Future of Marketing?" M.J. Anderson from Trekk presented a session on augmented reality that brought the house down, and Cyndie Shaffstall (whom you may have heard on our "Direct Marketing on a Shoestring Budget" webinars with Carolyn Goodman) helped marketers understand how to bring the various channels together with marketing automation for full lifecycle marketing.
We also had sessions from "Big Data" expert Devyani Sadh, PhD, of Data Square; Ethan Boldt from Direct Marketing IQ; Gary Hennerberg from Hennerberg Group; and Jude Hoffner from J. Schmid & Assoc. It was an all-star event.
Want to see what it was like? Just scan this page with Layar to watch a video clip from Brian Solis' keynote about how to communicate with today's connected, and distracted, customers. Or watch it here!
