Marketing Cloud Keynote: Dawn of the Digital Marketer
The sun is rising on the future of marketing. Customers are engaging brands they love on digital channels like never before, and new technology is further enabling ways for companies to impress customers every day. The dawn of the digital marketer is upon us — a new era of communication and connectivity. Join Marketing Cloud CEO Scott McCorkle to hear how customers like McDonald’s, Precor, Mattel, Room and Board, and AT&T are cultivating 1-to-1 customer experiences across Sales, Service, Community, Analytics, Platforms, Apps, and the Internet of things. The first 1,000 keynote attendees will receive a Marketing Cloud hoodie, but everyone will begin their journey to the future.
How Smart Brands Use Digital Marketing to Acquire, Engage, & Retain
Today's consumers are hyper-connected, better informed, and more empowered than ever. And they expect brands to deliver personalized offers, information, and service at every stage of the customer life cycle. To acquire and retain the new consumer, customer-centric brands are rapidly replacing ineffective, fragmented, one-size-fits-all mass advertising campaigns with data-driven, one-to-one communications that are tailored to the needs, interests, and location of the consumer. As a result, these companies are converting more shoppers to buyers, producing higher revenues, and improving customer retention. Join us as Joel Book of Salesforce Marketing Cloud discusses the major trends that are driving the convergence of marketing, sales, and customer service, and shares examples of companies using 1:1 omni-channel digital marketing strategies powered by Email, Mobile, Social Media, and Web Personalization to acquire, onboard, and retain customers.
