Businesses in Desperate Need to Make Digital Content Marketing Efforts Count

Forrester/OMI Study is just the impetus marketers need to attend digital educational events like ClickZ Live

SAN FRANCISCO, July 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With just 14% of marketers giving their own digital content strategies any kudos for seeing a return on investment, just 5% are focusing their efforts on building relationships in an increasingly digital world driven by social media and digital interactivity, according to a study by Forrester and the Online Marketing Institute.

ClickZ Live Digital Marketing Conference San Francisco - August 11-14

The report, focusing largely on B2B marketing trends, was based on a survey of 113 marketing executives, 72% of whom said less than half of their marketing staff are engaged directly in content marketing efforts.

From 11-14th August 2014 at the ClickZ Live Digital Marketing Conference being held in San Francisco, OMI CEO and Founder, Aaron Kahlow, will host two fireside chats with famous brands, solution providers and agencies and attempt to address the issue of why marketers are lacking in the right education and skillset to tackle what content marketing strategies work. The sessions will also explore why so many of them fail to see the potential of relationship-building through digital for attracting and retaining more customers than simply focusing on acquisition.

"I'd go as far to say this issue has reached a crisis level.  Over the years at OMI we've watched this backlog of skills needed to drive awareness and drive sales through digital grow and grow.  Content Marketing is the perfect poster child for this epidemic as we found in our survey with Forrester and BMA and our related Digital Skills and Talent Gap study," Kahlow said.

"Marketing teams are missing the ROI mark, agencies are failing their clients and senior leadership including HR, L&D, are failing their teams in an epic fashion. This is yet another reason I am thrilled to be moderating the keynote panel at the ClickZ Live digital marketing conference and helping unearth how these great companies are the exception to the rule and how we can learn from them."

Highlights from the ClickZ Live San Francisco Agenda include:

  • Creating Value by Breaking the Marketing Mold  - an opening keynote address by Bonin Bough from Mondelez International
  • Collaborate, Engage, Share: The Heart & Soul of Social Media – a fireside chat moderated by Online Marketing Institute Founder and CEO, Aaron Kahlow, with Shannon Sullivan Duffy, Head of Marketing, Direct Response Products, Facebook, Jeanette Gibson, VP, Community & Customer Experience, Hootsuite and Chris Pemberton, Digital Brand Manager, Ghirardelli Chocolate Company
  • Mobile Matters - More than You Know: Driving Revenue with Key Mobile Insights – with Greg Stuart, CEO, Mobile Marketing Association
  • Reach the Right Customers with Yahoo Gemini – a panel of experts from Yahoo! where delegates will learn how Yahoo makes it easy to get more customers, hear from an advertiser who's seen success, and ask questions directly to the ad product team
  • Harnessing the Power of Social Metrics – a solo session with Google Analytics Advocate, Adam Singer

The ClickZ Live digital marketing conference events are upheld by two fundamental pillars, education and networking. Incisive Media programs their agendas to include the most relevant and tactical content to enhance delegates' digital marketing campaigns, and believes that no successful conference is complete without unique and diverse networking and learning opportunities.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.
