08:35 AM - 09:05 AM Keynote Media Panel Discussion: Bringing Media Buying In-House To Save Money And Target Customers

Ken Chen, Co-Founder & CRO, NatureBox Darin Hardy, Director Acquisition Marketing, Nasty Gal Hamid Saify, SVP of Marketing, Razorgator Jarred Goldberg, CMO, The Bouqs
Many organizations work with third parties to manage their media buys. Are you in a similar position? What truly happens when you bring the management of those buys in-house? Our panelists have been through this transition, and will walk through strategy, staffing, data and more during this kick-off session.

• Getting a cost savings

• Improving the use of first party data (applying CRM data, etc.)

• Finding the best platform

• Staffing around this internally (to support bringing media buying in-house)

• Developing the best strategy (all programmatic or a mixture of private buys) and potentially outsourcing certain areas

• Using your data more effectively to target customers

The search environment is every changing, as your budgets. How is your paid budget changing? Your SEO? Your PLA budget? How are search results pages changing? This panel tackles everything from paid efforts to PLAs. Understand how to navigate this crazy landscape, and leave with your all of your search questions answered.

• What is your paid search budget? What is your SEO budget? What is your PLA budget? And how has that changed over time?

• Are you seeing the benefits of PLAs in the same way that you see the benefits from branded and non-branded search?

• How do you think about PLAs and search retargeting and other ways of using search in display?

• What do you think will happen overall in terms of the search results page in the future?

• What about changes in the landscape (Yahoo taking their search back in-house, etc.) and what that means for your search program?

• Google’s efforts to anonymize search through HTTPS; what are you doing to get the data you need to continue to optimize pages when they are not getting those search queries?

• How are you thinking about the shift to mobile and change in user behavior in the context of search?

• How can you be strategic about this channel when consumers spend more than half of their time on their mobile phones?

Ricky Joshi, CMO & Co-Founder, Saatva Bob Sherwin, Sr. Director Customer Acquisition, Wayfair Udayan Bose, Founder & CEO, NetElixir
Changes in SEO and SEM are increasing, and marketers have to stay ahead of them. Our group of search experts review these changes, and the impact they will have on the management of your programs. Get out in front of your search programs today!

• How will programs be created now that the major players are changing?

• How is this impacting how your ads will be managed, how will the ad placements be potentially different?

• Is this the first step in a shift in the search marketplace?

• How should PLAs be forecasted when you don’t have a lot of historical data?

• Should they have the same goals as paid search? Should they be viewed as the same thing (one is text, one is pictures)

• What does the SERP look like?

• Where is organic headed?

2:40 PM - 3:10 PM Closing Display Panel Discussion: What’s Your Display Reality: Looking Beyond Retargeting

Debbie Johnsen, Director Interactive Marketing, The Leading Hotels of the World Ryan Schlagenhauf, Director of Sales, Quantcast
Retargeting has become increasingly important for retailers – the location of ads, how to allocate your budget, whom to target and how. This interactive session is a soup to nuts overview of how to manage your retargeting program. Our panelists get into the nitty gritty of driving brand awareness and driving performance, so you can get the most out of your program.

• What is the best mix of behavioral targeting?

• Where should you spend your budget?

• If you want to expand your house file and find new customers, what is the way to go?

• Should you be buying homepages?

• Are these kinds of placements where customers are finding out about new companies to drive revenue?

• What is the goal – looking to be as targeted as you can be or just a big splashy ad of your brand?

• If building a brand isn’t your goal, and it is performance, what is the best path?
