One Step Back. Many Steps Forward | Royal 2AB
Marketing, when effective, reaches the right audience at the right place at the right time. It connects ideas and benefits with the people who want them. Arts and entertainment marketing is no exception. In fact, it is one of the most challenging sectors since we, as art marketers, rarely have any control over the “product” for which we are raising awareness and creating demand.  And because we are so close to the process and timing is compressed, our messages are very often singularly focused on the product, as opposed to the unique experience and the benefit of ‘being there.’  In this interactive session, participants will take one step back from the product and product driven approach, via case studies and open discussion of the motivations that compel key audience segments to participate. We will explore dynamic pathways towards adjusting marketing strategies and tactics to reach audience development goals moving forward.  Practical tools for doing so with be shared and can be used in future planning processes.
Speaker: Clint White

3:30 PM – 5:00 PM | Peter Shankman (Keynote Speaker) 

The Economy of the Next Fifty Years will be run by Customer Service

The days of begging for likes are over. The customer economy is all about doing likeable things. As the network gets smarter and smarter, it’ll know your favorite places before you do, and share those with the world – when the world is looking. So if your friends are looking for a doctor in New York City, and you live there, it’ll show them who you use, automatically, because logic suggests that if you go there a lot, you like the place, and your friends usually like what you like. It’s not private if you’re already posting from there, remember. What does this mean for your business? It means that it’s time to start focusing on the customer experience – Without that, no amount of advertising, marketing, or SEO will save you.

You will learn:

      • The five rules of the customer economy
      • Why speed matters
      • How to stay “top-of-mind” in every customer’s mind, from beginning to end
      • How millennials, as well as Generations Z and Alpha are consuming content, and how you can get in front of them
