Email. It's one of those tactics that few of us truly specialize in--but one almost every one of us that works in digital marketing touches on a regular basis. And it's a key tactic, too. According to research, email conversion rates are up to four times higher than social and almost double search. So, it pays (literally) to brush up on best practices--and keep on top of trends when it comes to marketing and customer communication via email.
For every new digital start up, there’s at least one existing company struggling to make a digital transition. Organizations wanting to adapt must search outside their industry for inspiration, because the rate of change is accelerating. Smart marketers can look to the would-be disruptors for clues to how to thrive in a more digital future.
Whether you are working within an enterprise, agency, or startup, this presentation will equip with you with ways to think differently about the way you activate your future.

I've got an entrepreneurial mindset, the ability to see how the dots will connect in the future, but the knowledge and experience to put plans and teams in place to get results now.
In a world overrun by data, how do we move beyond dashboards to true customer insights? Data driven marketing is helping us shape the future of marketing by better understanding our customer, creating amazing experiences and building more personal interactions. But, the bigger question is, how do we use it? In a world where the amount of data we have only increases, harnessing intelligent action through predictive analytics is a top priority for marketers. Come hear how you can start using data to unlock your customers and your full marketing potential. We will discuss data visualization, predictive marketing scenarios available to businesses both big and small, and the holy grail of prescriptive marketing with Microsoft’s Jeff Marcoux.
Attendees will also have the chance to engage with Microsoft’s Technology Center (MTC) firsthand before and after the presentation. Microsoft’s Technology professionals will showcase real scenarios where Midwest businesses have built new customer experiences using Kinect and other sensor information, showcase real live scenarios for marketing analytics and practical ways to build a 360 degree view of the consumer.

All the acronyms! All the buzzwords! Lots of experts talk a big game when it comes to things like SEO, SEM, PPC, content strategy, marketing automation, big data and more. But what does it all mean?

Introducing: Tactics in Twenty.
