Fashioning Success - Becoming Successful with Fashion in Performance Marketing

  1. Intermediate Publishers   Agencies   Advertisers   Networks A4UP8

Moderated by Florent Coudyser

Fashion is one of the fastest growing vertical sectors within affiliate marketing. According to eMarketer, online sales of apparel and accessories saw huge growth in 2012. This is all the more noteworthy, as apparel is a product type for which shoppers’ desire to touch, feel and try on before making a purchase, a fact long seen as a deterrent to online sales.

This impressive growth is supported by a host of publisher models that use blogs, pairing content and social channels to drive revenue through the fashion sector. Join our panel of fashion publishers, bloggers, brands and a fashion-centric agency as they discuss the ascendancy of online fashion content. Expect to hear about cross-border promotions, utilising social channels and leveraging user-generated content.

Expect this session to challenge your ideas about what it means to lead, how to structure a team for success and what to ask for as an employee.

Interflora vs Google: Risk Management for your Links and SEO

  1. Intermediate Publishers   Advertisers A4US9

If you saw the coverage earlier this year about Google handing a link-based penalty to massive global brand, Interflora, and want to ensure that your link building strategy is adhering to Google's constantly changing guidelines, then this session is for you.

The SEO game has changed rapidly with Penguin and, ultimately, so has link building. You won't want to be the next Interflora and the speaker will take you through a new mindset for link building and goal setting to a new 'risk vs reward' scheme.

This session will give examples on unnatural links, link removal, recovery and link risk management. Sit in on this session to ensure you have a more sustainable and up-to-date link-building strategy than you've had previously.

Multi-Channel PR Campaigns that Set the World on Fire!

  1. Beginner Publishers   Agencies   Advertisers   Networks   Others A4UMC9

In a land not too far away, two intrepid marketeers; one from the world of public relations and another from the world of social media, got together to explain how cross-platform campaigns were the way forward for brands wanting to take their consumer engagement to the next level.

The session is aimed at explaining how companies can combine campaigns across video, public relations and social media in order to increase engagement levels and make budgets stretch that little bit further.

If that was not enough, we also explain the SEO benefits of these types of campaigns and sprinkle over a dash of real-life campaign examples that have worked well for their clients.


Lunch & Networking

A delectable mix of hot and cold food will be served during this time.


Keynote: Dual-Screening and the Convergence of Engagement

Today's hyper-connected consumers no longer distinguish between one screen or device. They look for convenience and quality; and may the best screen win. Simultaneous, often continuous switching among screens has created a huge challenge (and opportunity) for marketers.

At the heart of it all is video – which can elicit the same emotion whether viewed on a pocket-sized screen on the go or the largest on the wall. Through video, we laugh, cry, are enticed to buy, and are inspired to share with friends and strangers.

So, as video becomes increasingly channel-agnostic, how do we achieve cross media engagement? How can we build a fused strategy in this landscape? How do we measure beyond quantifiable metrics and refocus on the qualitative and social side of video?

Deann Harvey will help you spot the trends, find cohesion, and prepare for explosive growth in next-generation converged video.

Maximising the Publisher / Network Relationship

  1. Intermediate Publishers   Networks A4UP10

While some SME publishers focus on trying to gain ground and reach those dizzy top-tier heights, others have enough trouble just trying to get a network to look at them, let alone keep up once they reach the summit. From competing against a torrent of top-notch traffic to becoming exposed, making a splash and getting yourself heard – it is not an easy battle being a publisher.

Short of a big arrow sign and a neon jacket, publishers will find out how ‘not’ to be ignored by a network, while gaining insight into hot topics such as relationship building with advertisers.

From networks helping publishers facilitate key industry rendezvous, and publishers who aren't geo-located in industry hub cities; to selling yourself and business properly - a whole host of topics will be explored. Here, a panel of candid network pros and up-front publishers will also smash myths and delve into controversial issues such as backhanders and profit splitting.

Successful Email Campaigns for the Multi-Channel Age

  1. Beginner Publishers   Agencies   Advertisers   Networks   Others A4UMC10

If you send email newsletters and updates, it's likely that a growing percentage of your subscribers are reading your messages on a smartphone or tablet. Depending on where you’re viewing your inbox from, it’s an experience that can swing from awesome to awful. While an email newsletter can look superb in the inbox, when squeezed onto a smartphone it can become unusable, with narrow columns, small fonts and broken layouts typical common issues.

In this session, join an email marketing publisher as it takes you through some of their best practices for delivering and targeting to the agile consumer. Hear how their award-winning email campaigns have taken into account multi-device usability to increase engagement, click-throughs and delivery.

A great session to attend if you’re looking to improve your email marketing campaigns and increase relevancy with your multi-channel audience.
