5-Minute Marketing: Tips and trends for the time starved

Mary makes a complex subject simple. Pithy, irreverent, but never short on actionable detail, information is presented in a compelling and memorable way; through storytelling in short segments on six marketing topic areas. Mary will look at trends and opportunities, with a particular focus on relevant content for the clients industry. Leave with actionable marketing ideas that you can put to work right away. Topics covered are selected after consulting with the client, and are updated constantly. Topics could include:
- Disruption: thriving and seeing opportunity instead of threat
- We are all connected: using social media to tell your story to your best customers and top prospects
- Consumers going private in public: using data and predictive analytics, but getting onside with customers and maintaining high ethics in communications
- Word of mouth, mouse and mobile: using trust and targeting to spread your message using a referral network
- Make your message sticky: best practices and creative ideas for making your message memorable
- Content is king but creating community is queen: nurturing relationships with your best customers to create community and earn the right to sell more

Expect to be inspired and entertained with Mary's clean design use of visuals, and video content to compliment her talk. Fast moving, informative, and fun.
