Visual Communication Strategies

Most people remember 10% of what they hear and 20% of what they read, but 80% of what they see… "You can't unsee that" now makes so much sense. Sales presentations, marketing follow-ups, and other assets to help communicate your value proposition are traditionally linear, wordy, and oftentimes lead to unmemorable brand moments. Dustin will hold an interactive discussion on the current challenges marketers are faced with and outlook going into 2022 to drive memorable brand experiences in your sales channels.

And, assuming it is the next evolution, what are some best practices in moving your values-based marketing strategy forward.

[INTERACTIVE SESSION] 

Digital Marketing – To the Metaverse and Beyond?!

Digital tools and platforms have transformed what, where and how we market. Social, tech and physical changes wrought by the Covid-19 global pandemic expanded and accelerated that transformation. Are we ready for what’s next? Do we even know what’s now? Are some of us still playing catch-up, and who is nailing it?

 

In this session, we’ll take the temperature on opportunities digital delivers – cheaper, faster, bigger, broader – while exploring its potential downsides, such data overload and online feedback. The opportunities are myriad but the challenges are real – and evolving rapidly. What’s the role of VR/AR and AI, of mobile marketing and electronic word of mouth? How in the metaverse are we to management all this content, strategically leverage the overpacked carry-ons of data we’re collecting, and hang tight to the old-school values of trust and customer relationships?

 

We promise a lively discussion, much food for thought and even a few answers as we explore where the digital path may lead us.
