Networking and connecting is an essential part to any association brand. Connecting with your members and serving as a platform for your members to connect doesn't change over time, but the channels do.

Eric Eicher, Owner at IKECONIC, will be sharing what's changed, how to identify the most effective digital channels for your organization and what trends are worth paying attention to.

In this presentation you’ll learn:
- How to bridge the gap between traditional and digital channels, as a part of your overall marketing strategy.
- How your members and potential members want to engage with your brand through video, web, social media and other digital outlets.
- Key metrics for analyzing the effectiveness of your digital marketing campaigns.
- How a case study called IndyIsHappy went viral, and how the concept and execution can be applied to your organization.
