21st Century Marketing: Human-Cyborg Relations Beyond the Droids and Jedi Mind Tricks

No matter how much technology and the access to marketing communication changes, one thing remains the same – we must still do business with fellow human beings. Search engines are morphing into smart, automated systems (algorithms, machine learning, emerging AI) with the means to present the best answer to a user’s question… sometimes before the user even realizes what they want to ask.

Social media seeks to provide connection and meaning to user experiences. In this Rocks Talk, we will explore how to adapt to this changing marketing environment and optimize our digital presence for both the bots and the users on the other end.

Together we will explore:

  • User behavior trends
  • Impact of voice devices like Alexa and Google Home
  • Continuing changes to how marketing information is served

This talk is sure to ROCK! Be ready.
