The Help Desk
How much time could you save if you had a staff of digital marketing experts on call to answer questions about everything from social media audits to Facebook page optimization? Now you do. Schedule one-on-one consultations throughout the day, or just walk up and start asking questions. You’ll get the smart answers you need. Meet the experts.
Yes, we have case studies, keynotes and a panel.
You’ll hear from brands and others who are raising the bar when it comes to engaging with customers and prospects in real time.
And lest we drink too much of our own Kool-Aid, we’ve asked our closing panel, Don’t Believe The (Realtime) Hype, to lead a debate designed to separate the buzz from the bottom line.
Have fun, learn lots, and get hands-on at Realtime Marketing Lab.
