Today's digital consumer is bombarded with media, advertising and content every second they spend connected to an Internet enabled device. The sheer volume of digital noise has numbed responsiveness to traditional online communications. At the same time, major shifts in technology and consumer behaviors have created new opportunities for companies ready to embrace adaptive and customer-centric models of communications like those outlined in Optimize.
Relevant for both marketing and public relations, Optimize provides insight into the planning, implementation and scale of optimized digital marketing and communications across the customer lifecycle. The result? More sales and longer, more meaningful customer and brand relationships.
When asked about the upcoming launch party and his book Optimize Odden shared, “Minnesota is home to some of the top digital marketing and PR companies in the U.S, as well as some of the top consumer brands, including Best Buy, Target, and General Mills. Even with all that talent there is as much opportunity as ever in Minnesota to optimize marketing and communications to be more effective.” In regards to his book Optimize, Odden says: “This event is a celebration of Optimize as a go-to resource for planning and implementing a holistic Internet marketing program for the converging world of marketing and public relations.”
