Marketing has always been regarded as “alchemy” – go make gold behind the curtain. But how much gold do you get and what are the key ingredients? If the traditional media is losing steam, which are the most impactful media vehicles? Web 2.0 has increased interest in the “dark science” – but the Web transition also equips us with all kinds of new measurement opportunities. We will kick off this collaborative session with a series of new and insightful empirical data points and provide a new measurement framework for government IT marketing in the Web 2.0 era – then open the floor to discuss what’s really working – beyond the smoke and mirrors…
As marketers, we’re always looking for the next “shiny object” – new ways to reach our customers while providing necessary leads and increasing awareness. Micromarketing and microsegmentation have proven their value in commercial consumer and business-to-business marketing – can they work their magic in the government IT space? Join this discussion on how you can use your existing customer data and engage new qualified audiences to create compelling, one-to-one conversations with customers and real prospects. By focusing, you can achieve significantly greater return on every dollar you spend – as you reach a smaller, more qualified audience. We will deliver a framework and case studies to initiate the debate.
