Springboard Brand & Creative Strategy

SWIM or Sink
Consumers want a relationship with brands. To accomplish this, brands must engage with a “Heartbeat” message, instead of pounding people with a “Chest Beat” message. We defined SWIM as it relates to creating this relationship:

Search – benefits, best practices, targeting, new tactics
Web – optimization, hub for messaging and tracking, success factors for inbound marketing, content
Interact – on social media, best practices, calendars, targeting, posts and ads, channels, uses
Measure – analytics, refinement, testing

Case study samples of a digital/social campaign - planning, implementation, tracking and optimizing were discussed.

HOPE SOWDERS     Business Development and Paper Guru, Mohawk

Topic: The Competition for Your Audiences' Attention Has Risen to a Fever Pitch

They are overwhelmed, bombarded with more-more-more, with less impact. What we make needs to matter, to make an impression, to elevate itself from the endless churn of communication. How? Make effective things, great things, that slow people down, activate their senses and command their attention. Mohawk is here to help you do that by teaching you how to use uncoated textured and colored papers as a tool to move the needle from good to great.

Hope works with creatives, end-users, and printers to create beautiful, effective, and memorable messaging for a quite a while.  This session left the audience wondering if she drinks a lot of caffeine or if she is really that excited about paper!

Topic: Taking A Holistic Approach to SEO and PPC Pays Off For Owensboro Health

Owensboro Health wanted to take a research-based approach to understanding and improving their search engine performance. Together with their partner, Geonetric, they analyzed data, conducted research, and prioritized projects that aligned with Owensboro Health’s goals. That work paid off to the tune of a 58% increase in unique organic pageviews on provider profiles and a 1,400% increase in organic entrances for a recently acquired hospital. Insights from this project have translated into new efforts focused on ensuring that paid traffic and SEO are working together to deliver the highest value.
