Digital Marketing — From Toronto To SXSW

Digital Marketing — From Toronto To SXSW

SXSW in Austin, TX

This week, DSM is thrilled to be attending the South by Southwest Interactive Festival and Conference in Austin, Texas. SXSW is the largest conference of its kind in the world and focuses on budding technology and innovation. SXSW is the birthplace of fresh/creative ideas and new technologies. On top of all that it will be a good place for us to reunite with some of our old friends from Google and Silicon Valley. If that isn’t exciting enough, going on at the same time is SXSW Film and SXSW Music so we will also have the opportunity to go to some cool concerts, see some new movies and maybe even check out a party or two! There will be thousands of people making their way to Austin this week to participate in the festival and we couldn’t be happier to be joining!

Attending SXSW is key for a company doing digital marketing consulting, planning and strategy as it is not only the place where new ideas come from, but also the place to meet the people who created them. We want to be the first to hear about new emerging trends and ideas so we can put them to work for our clients!  In today’s world being first to adapt to new ideas and technologies can give businesses a clear advantage over their competition.

There’s so much to learn

We’ve come prepared to maximize our time here with a jam-packed schedule full of meetings, presentations and networking events all featuring industry leaders and the most brilliant minds around. Here are just a few of the topics we are excited to be acquiring new expertise about:

  • Ecommerce
  • Online Marketing
  • Mobile marketing strategy
  • Social Media Measurement
  • Social Ads
  • B2B Social Marketing
  • How Digital has changed the Retail Industry
  • Blogging/Storytelling
  • A/B Testing

It’s going to be a crazy week full of fun. We’ll be handing out business cards, taking notes, witnessing digital changes as they happen and likely very little sleep. We are stoked!
