Matt Lawson is the Vice President of Marketing at Marin Software, the paid search, social and display campaign management and bid optimization platform. Matt brings a wealth of experience in the marketing analytics space as well from his previous experience and roles at Coremetrics. I’ve asked Matt to speak today because Marin Software works both with agencies and directly with enterprise and SMB clients, and they keep a close watch on industry trends in paid media management. Jason Damas is the Director of SEO at AKQA. Jason and his team have worked on clients such as Nike, Visa, Clorox, PetSmart and HSBC on a global scale. Jason has a deep understanding of the connections between SEO, SEM, social media, brand strategy and all forms of advertising interact. I asked him to speak today because SEO tends to be grouped into the big unknown for agencies – even agencies who are developing websites and other interactive assets for their clients!

Steve will address the important issue of agency disintermediation in his presentation, and he is an active blogger on that and many other topics relevant to the advertising world. Lisa Bari – me.

US Online Ad Revenues by Format Important point: “One reason the IAB suggested for the declining ad spend among CPGs—historically big spenders on mass media like TV—was the inability of these companies to accurately measure the impact of their integrated online and offline efforts, keeping them and other heavy TV ad spenders from moving dollars more freely online.”
