Pre-Empting Common Roadblocks When Transitioning To Digital

How can your audience benefit from learning the most common roadblocks across three phases of developing a digital marketing strategy?

In this presentation, David will share the most common challenges companies face when seeking to transform their business into a more sophisticated digital force, before their competitors race ahead online. The audience will walk away with the key to making intelligent decisions and managing risks that derail digital efforts in most underprepared companies.

Digital Strategy for the C-Suite: Demystifying Digital Marketing

How can your audience benefit from learning the 5-step process and digital sales funnel framework used in David’ book, Getting Digital Marketing Right?

As the leader of your organization, it isn’t and shouldn’t be your job to know the intricacies and technicalities of online marketing tactics and techniques, like running a Pay-Per-Click AdWords campaign.  However, you should be able to lead and participate a digital marketing strategy.

In this presentation, David will teach this simplified process for business growth, goal attainment, and powerful marketing.  The audience will walk away with the key to making smart decisions relative to their digital marketing with a reliable and transferable method.

The Science of Marketing Data for Non-Data Scientists

Data is at the core of all successful marketing initiatives. Yet, marketers still struggle to use data effectively.

Furthermore, with the added importance of data in recent years, data scientists have joined organizations. A challenge in communication between data scientists and marketers arose, as marketers do not know what to ask for, how to ask for it, and how to connect data findings to business results and relevance.

In this talk, David helps marketers understand how to approach data and its application to marketing and data to produce more effective results, clearer communication, and greater confidence in all marketing activities.

Step Three
