The Digital Marketing Forum is just three weeks away and many businesses are already jumping on board to purchase tickets to the lunch event. Get in fast for the opportunity to hear some of Australia's best and brightest in the marketing game.
Hosted jointly by Sensis and The Australian, the 2016 Digital Marketing Forum will feature the brand head of Facebook, two extremely successful business owners and a renowned brand strategist so you too can learn how to outperform the big players with the help of digital strategies.
Held on September 16th at The Westin Hotel, Martin Place, Sydney, the lunch panel discussion will feature Naomi Shepherd, Head of Brand at Facebook and Instagram; Justin Dry, Co-founder and joint CEO at Vinomofo; Kate Morris, Founder and CEO at Adore Beauty and Dan Gregory, Founder and CEO at The Impossible Institute.
The panel discussion will also draw on some of the findings from the recently-released Sensis e-Business Report 2016, an annual report revealing how businesses and consumers are using technology with business insights you won’t find anywhere else in Australia.
Naomi will offer a rich insight into how big advertisers use both platforms, and can therefore uncover how smaller businesses can compete successfully, without the overheads of marketing departments, advertising agencies or the budgets that exists at the big end of town.
Naomi will advocate for the audience to focus less on ‘digital/social marketing’, in favour of prioritising their marketing around achieving intended business objectives.
