Curating, creating, and delivering fresh content pushes your marketing game to the next level. Your goal: Get the right content to the right people, when and where they want to see it.
Optimization is the key, and analyzing user data, whether by leveraging AI or including engagement and other metrics in your efforts, helps you uncover not just which content is most competitive but what characteristics are pushing it to the top of the list, and even help you fine-tune your message in real time, keeping it fresh and commanding consumer attention. Once that message is refined and optimized, your data can help you home in on consumer intent, seize site-specific demand opportunities, gauge opportunity sizing — and then make sure your message is discovered with predictive intelligence.

For decades, OOH measurement was limited to impressions. But all that is changing. By using mobile data, we’re now able to track the movements of people who pass by an out-of-home unit. Combined with the right data science, measurement goes beyond simple impressions to a true map of your OOH campaign’s impact.
In this webinar, our Science Product Director Aaron Stewart and Chief Scientist Shawn Spooner will walk you through a real campaign that we tracked. You’ll get a chance to see advanced measurement in action and how it answers these key marketing questions:
How many people saw the ad, then went to the client location?
Who are these visitors? Where do they go and what do they do?
How do I target people who saw my ad with online ads?
How can we build a stronger audience profile?
We are on the cusp of a whole new world that integrates out-of-home seamlessly into our technological society. And observational results are only the beginning. Join us to see how data science and technology are changing the out-of-home world.

GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a new data regulation that requires all companies that process data on EU residents to comply with strict policies. In scope are customers, data on behalf of customers, employees, vendors, or contractors. Many US companies are just learning of GDPR or understanding that, despite perhaps not directly doing business in the EU, they may unexpectedly be required to put substantial safeguards into place to be compliant. The kicker is, companies have only until May 25th, 2018 to put these safeguards into place.
In this webinar, we’re joined by special guest, Jodi Daniels, Privacy Consultant and Founder of Red Clover Advisors, and Andrew Richardson, Elite SEM Director of Analytics, who will walk us through everything you need to know regarding:
- GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)
the relationship between PII (Personally Identifiable Information) and GDPR
- how you and your company will be affected, even if you don’t directly do business in the EU
- what actions you and your company should be taking in order to avoid high penalties
Pinterest is known as the planner’s platform… but it’s more than that, it’s also the motivated planner’s platform. 72% of Pinterest users say that Pinterest influences ideas in their everyday lives, and 1 out of 2 Pinners have made a purchase after seeing a Promoted Pin. Additionally, unlike other social platforms that see holiday spikes primarily around Black Friday/Cyber Monday and Christmas, Pinterest sees holiday and celebration pinning and purchasing all year round. That is an incredible prospecting and conversion opportunity, especially for retailers, who historically do very well on the platform.
Join 3Q Digital and Pinterest for a live webinar on Thursday, January 25th at 2pm ET / 11am PT where we’ll dive into how retail brands can plan their Pinterest advertising to take advantage of search spikes 365 days a year. We’ll also discuss:

Was ist neu und was muss von den Werbetreibenden berücksichtigt werden, um erfolgreich zu sein?
Truth: Your customers’ professional attributes are just as important as their non-professional attributes. Career paths speak to who a person is - to their values and interests. When you know what someone does for a living or the company they work for, you have a better idea of their intentions and life trajectory. But these consumer insights are often forgotten when the marketing campaign is built and executed, which leaves money on the table.

True one-to-one interaction is considered the holy grail of customer experience. However, according to a recent CMO Council study, only 7 percent of marketers are able to consistently create these individualized experiences across all channels.
For the third and final webinar of this series, the CMO Council and Teradata are concluding the conversation around shaping customer experiences by focusing on the importance of coordinated cross-channel messaging through a centralized hub for all customer interactions—one that listens to all interactions, automatically tells marketing channels when and about what to say based on all the latest data and machine-learning analytics, and applies contact governance so that your marketing is smart and optimized, not fragmented by channel.
During this one-hour webinar, our expert panel will share insights around how companies can build one central messaging hub for all customer interactions, regardless of channel. Marketers can elevate their marketing with a marketing hub to optimize and coordinate messaging, analytics and data so that the messaging automatically shifts, whether it’s time to sell or time to provide customer care, ensuring that each interaction is good for the customer and the brand. A featured brand expert will also share their company’s challenges in this area, as well as the steps they have taken in order to create consistent cross-channel messaging for the customer and make one-to-one experiences a reality for their organization.
Among the topics to be discussed:

• Industry best practices and results from marketers who are coordinating their
marketing in a hub and how it has elevated their marketing

Ad fraud isn’t becoming more prevalent -- the fraudsters are just getting slicker. From bot nets to device ID spoofing, the tricks are getting more sophisticated, and raking in more and more cash for the swindlers.
Staying ahead of the fraudster’s learning curve is the key — and collaboration is the crucial element. While vendors and advertisers are directly impacted by fraud, tracking partners provide the technology to help fight fraud – all three players have to work together to circle the wagons.
Making a game plan can be complex, when there are no clear benchmarks for defining or measuring fraud, as each player defines it differently and different benchmarks are needed for each app type, geo, traffic source, and so on.
Join this VB Live event to learn how to tackle that complexity, how to define benchmarks, detect and manage fraud, and work with your partners to circle the wagons against the fraudsters.

The esports market is on fire. Last year 43 million people watched the League of Legends world championships, a multiplayer fighting game. And it's not a niche market of teenage boys in basements.

And the question is -- how do you monetize that at scale?
Look to the wild success of the Asia-Pacific esports companies.
