If you aren’t familiar with speed dating, it’s an interesting concept.
Basically, it’s an organized event where people participate in a series of short conversations with potential partners to determine mutual interest.
Similar to musical chairs, when the time is up, each person rotates to the next date in hopes that at the end of the event, a potential match is made.
Thankfully all chairs remain throughout the duration.
Barbaric and forward as it may seem, it allows attendees to quickly filter for compatibility in a way that doesn’t monopolize anyone’s time.
That’s why when Kissmetrics organized their webinar for “Speed Dating on Advertising,” we thought it was pretty awesome. And definitely worth writing about.
What You Can Expect from Speed Dating on Advertising
During the webinar, participants will move quickly through 7 different tactics and cover the benefits, uses and available platforms related to each via 6-minute rounds.
Whether you’ve never experimented with online advertising or you’re a pro, it’s a great chance to learn it all or learn a few things in just under an hour.
Here are the topics they’ll cover:
– Contextual advertising
– Lookalike advertising
– CRM targeting
– Search engine marketing (SEM)
– Social media advertising
– Content Distribution
Where Content Distribution Fits In
An important topic for our brand and audience is how we can offer informational and/or entertainment value to the reader outside of simply advertising products or services.
With tons of marketers using content distribution to reach new audiences with great content at every stage of the customer journey, make sure not to miss this round on the owned, earned and paid content distribution opportunities available to you.
Here are content distribution case studies in the Automotive and Fashion industries to get you started.
Meet Your Speed Dating Coaches
Approaching different advertising tactics can be scary.
How do you know which one is going to be right for your business?
We’ve all had our one-night stands with a digital marketing tactic or two, just testing the waters with no real substance to what we’re doing or how to measure back to our KPIs.
It’s time to weigh the options and consider a longer-term investment that, over time, will provide the meaningful results needed to grow with content.
The best part is that you don’t even have to go about it alone because with Kissmetrics acting as BFF, you’ve got the full support of two industry coaches on advertising.
No stranger to the Outbrain blog, Larry is the PPC guru people can’t seem to stop writing about.
