High Five Conference Program

  2. 2. PRESENTS 2
  3. 3. HELLO HIGH FIVER, When we set out to create a new conference in Raleigh, we wanted to do something different. Our mantra was to create a conference unlike any other. The High Five Conference is more than an event to us—it’s a call to action for marketers and creatives to come together and harness their shared talents to achieve the extraordinary. You might say this is a lofty goal. And you’d be 100% correct. But for our businesses and clients to succeed, we have to collaborate. The High Five is a universal symbol of collaboration, teamwork and success, which is exactly what our conference celebrates. We’re so happy you’re here and can’t wait to see what unfolds next. High Five! EVAN CARROLL CONFERENCE DIRECTOR PROGRAM JOURNAL SPONSOR WWW.CHANNELADVISOR.COM/ABOUT/CAREERS 3

Whether you’re a hesitant speaker or one who wants to improve, please join us for an interactive and educational session designed to help you become a GREAT speaker through the use of a valuable and easy-to-learn technique – the Speakers’ Silver Bullet. In addition to learning about the skill, you will practice and apply it to your message, whether it’s a technical work presentation, a networking event or a sales/persuasion situation. The Silver Bullet can apply to most any situation, takes relatively little preparation, and is used by the masters of the stage in just about every forum imaginable. You’ll find ways to immediately put this weapon in your toolbox and WOW your audiences and have them ready to listen to your pitch, platform or presentation. 12:00 PM LUNCH FEB 26 CONTINUED 6 WORKSHOP /B G2 Digital Marketing The Right Way MARK TRAPHAGEN & JON PARKS / INSTRUCTORS AT ASPE ROI DAVID MANTICA / PRESIDENT OF ASPE, INC.

But amongst this chaos how do you find true north and set a creative, yet effective digital marketing strategy? This three-hour workshop will take you on a deep dive into digital marketing, helping you move seamlessly from strategy to tactics and weaving everything together into a comprehensive campaign.

In a popcorn-style discussion and presentation, learn how content marketing, Google Plus, social media, AdWords and analytics all play a major role in every digital marketing campaign, and why each one is a critical element.

A combination of forces that could very well cause the bottom to fall out of the media model. To prepare for this scenario, consider a new marketing model in which the optimal paid media budget would be zero. In this bold and provocative keynote, four-time author and thought leader, Joseph Jaffe will outline the Z.E.R.O. Manifesto of how brands can move from being tenants to landlords and successfully adopt and activate the four-pronged approach of Zealots, Entrepreneurship, Retention and Owned Assets. 3:15 PM BREAK 3:30 PM BREAKOUT SESSIONS BREAKOUT /A G Earn It. Don’t Buy It. Social Media Marketing in a Post Facebook World JIM TOBIN / FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT AT IGNITE SOCIAL MEDIA In his first book, Social Media is a Cocktail Party: Why You Already Know the Rules of Social Media Marketing, social media marketing pioneer Jim Tobin showed how normal social behaviors are more important to online marketing than the dusty old rules of advertising. In his new book, Earn It. Don’t Buy It. The CMO’s Guide to Social Media Marketing in a Post Facebook World, Jim shows that now, you not only have to know the rules of organic engagement and honest, meaningful, and truthful conversations with customers, but where to find the audience. Facebook? Nobody goes there anymore, it’s too crowded. The first arrivals are off to a better, more exclusive party. Tobin talks about where to find them and how to implement a social media strategy to engage them and their friends, and he offers a breakthrough system for measuring your social media marketing ROI. You can t buy your way into the online conversation anymore, not with ads — you’ve got to earn your way in. Remember, it’s their world, we just post in it. 4:15 PM BREAK FEB 26 CONTINUED 8

Imagine if you could harness the power of luck to make good things happen in your life. Say you could identify and plan for the next major market shift that is going to impact your business, and adapt your strategies to control the outcome to your advantage. Instead of blindly reacting to unplanned events, what if you could actually architect good luck into your business, hone your skills to recognize the next big opportunity, and provide the space for things to go unexpectedly right? According to Lane Becker, co-author of New York Times bestseller “Get Lucky,” polishing your skills to harness luck is not only learnable, it is the key ingredient some of the world’s most admired leaders cite for their success. Lane defines this type of luck as “planned serendipity“ — where individuals can influence the outcome of unplanned encounters simply by exercising certain behaviors. In this presentation, Lane will share his insights on the mechanics of luck — how it works, and how to put it to work for you. He’ll explore how some of the world’s most successful business leaders have developed the capacity to put themselves in the path of chance opportunities, to identify the really great ones that come their way, and to take action on the ones that matter most. 5:30 PM WELCOME RECEPTION 6:30 PM DINNER IN GROUPS 8:00 PM CONFERENCE CONCERT Matrimony OPENING ACTS INCLUDE ADAM COHEN COMEDY AND RALEIGH BAND NEW REVEILLE LINCOLN THEATRE / 126 E.

His report has been viewed and shared more than half a million times online — and the most recent edition was the #1 most downloaded Marketing Research book on Amazon for eight weeks straight. At a time when meaningless predictions such as “2014 will be the year of mobile” are often shared by so called gurus — Rohit’s “Non-Obvious Trend Report” uses real life examples to spotlight unexpected trends in media, technology, advertising, culture and entrepreneurship. 10:00 AM BREAK / SPONSOR EXPERIENCE OPENS 10:15 AM BREAKOUT SESSION BREAKOUT /A O Rethinking Entrepreneurship? CHRISTOPHER BUTLER / COO AT NEWFANGLED / EDITOR AT SMASHING MAGAZINE _____________________________________________ _____________________________________________ MATT WOOLMAN / DIRECTOR OF CREATIVE ENTREPRENEURSHIP, VCU _____________________________________________ _____________________________________________ MODERATED BY HEATHER HESKETH / CEO AT HESKETH.COM Entrepreneurship as an idea has won the hearts of creative and marketing professionals, but we’re lacking a stable foundation upon which to practice it. In this session, Matt Woolman, Director of Creative Entrepreneurship at Virginia Commonwealth University, and Chris Butler, COO at Newfangled, will explore what entrepreneurship means, beginning with the educational systems that introduce it and working their way through the working culture we find ourselves in. Beyond the critique they will bring, they hope to spark a conversation around how to practice entrepreneurship in the marketplace and even rethink your own business models. FEB 27 CONTINUED 12
  13. 13. 2014 SCHEDULE In this unique new keynote talk, Rohit will share some of the insights from his recently released 2014 Trend Report, and break down how these trends will change your business and industry. Most importantly, you’ll leave with concrete ideas for how to take advantage of these trends in 2014 and beyond. BREAKOUT /B C BREAKOUT /C G Building a Brand from the Inside Out Creating an AnalyticsDriven Marketing Culture CHRIS GRAMS / PRESIDENT AND FOUNDER AT NEW KIND ADELE SWEETWOOD / VICE PRESIDENT, AMERICAS MARKETING AND SUPPORT AT SAS Chris Grams is President and Partner of New Kind, a firm that describes itself as “community catalysts.” In this session, Chris will teach you how to build a brand from the inside out, using the energy and passion of the community of people who care about it most, inside and around the organization. Drawing lessons from his book The Ad-Free Brand, his work building communities of passion at New Kind, and his decade of experience helping build Red Hat into one of the most successful brand communities in the technology world, Chris will discuss how to move beyond dated advertising-centric models and embrace an open, collaborative way of engaging communities in the process of brand building, creating stronger, more sustainable brands along the way. _____________________________________________ DENNIS MASSENGILL / EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, CORPORATE CREATIVE AND EXECUTIVE OPERATIONS AT SAS Catchy copy, clever promotions and gut instinct used to get the job done when trying to reach prospects and customers. But applying analytics enables marketing to now combine fact-based decision making with creativity. Accountability through analytics helps drive ever changing creative options to better reach your target audience. Adele and Dennis will share ideas on how you can become a catalyst for analytical creativity in your organization, driving a whole new level of communication that spreads innovation, based on fact, throughout your marketing department. 13
  14. 14. 7417 C 490 C 5315 C 7546 C COOL GRAY 10 C FEB/27 MAIN CO NF EREN C E 11:00 PM BREAK 11:15 PM KEYNOTE O Word of Mouth: The Greatest Creative Asset You’re Not Leveraging SPIKE JONES / CO-AUTHOR OF BRAINS ON FIRE / SVP & MANAGING DIRECTOR, SOUTHWEST AT EDELMAN DIGITAL Word of mouth is the grandfather of all things social media. Yet, in this age of “shiny object syndrome” we’ve quickly become mesmerized by social and forgotten about the basics of human behavior and interaction. After all, 90% of word of mouth recommendations still happen offline. In this talk, we’ll dig into the power of your brand connection points, empowering those that already love you and even talk about some counter-intuitive, actionable ways to harness that positive WOM out there. 12:15 PM LUNCH 2:00 PM BREAKOUT SESSION BREAKOUT /A C Lightning Round Sessions A COLLECTION OF 10-MINUTE SESSIONS FOLLOWED BY JOINT Q&A WITH ALL THREE SPEAKERS Making An Impact: It’s Not What, But When The "New" Rule of SEO: Common Sense JAKE FINKELSTEIN / FOUNDER & CEO AT METHOD SAVVY JENNY HALSAZ / PRESIDENT AT JLH MARKETING There are no lack of ways to invest in marketing and advertising. We’ve all heard smart speakers talk about how to design the perfect email, craft just the right print advertisement or optimize your website for search. But what they don’t tell you is that timing the deployment of marketing executions is equally important as doing them in the first place. This lightning session won’t focus on the HOW, but on the WHEN. Join Jake as he explores how to time your communications and advertising activities to maximize marketplace impact. If you've been watching the changes in Google lately, it's tempting to worry about what's next. Is link building dead? Is content marketing the future? What about authorship? Is Schema the next frontier, or the next penalty? 2:45 PM BREAK FEB 27 CONTINUED 14 Join SEO expert, Jenny Halasz, as she explains why great SEO is mostly just the application of common sense, and teaches you the single question you should ask yourself when deciding whether an SEO tactic is the right move. The “Big Idea” Needs “Big Data” — Using Data as the Foundation for Your Marketing Campaigns MEGAN JONES / DIRECTOR OF ANALYTICS AT CAPSTRAT Delivering one standard message to your customers is no longer an effective marketing strategy. Today, it’s all about determining the right message for the right audience, and the right channel for delivery — and using data as the foundation for it all. Join Megan in this lightning session to learn how data can help you make smarter and more costefficient marketing decisions, by segmenting your audience and developing hyper-targeted campaigns that deliver results.
  15. 15. 2014 SCHEDULE T H URS . / D AY 2 You’ll walk away with a better understanding of how to use social as the tool that it is and be able to immediately put offline word of mouth to work for you. BREAKOUT /B O BREAKOUT /C G Tall Tales from a Large Man Neuromarketing: The Art and Science of Influence AARON DRAPLIN / DRAPLIN DESIGN CO. SHERIDAN ORR / HEAD OF GLOBAL PRODUCT MARKETING AT CHANNELADVISOR Using scientific proof and state-of-the-art multimedia techniques, Aaron will deliver a suckerpunch of a talk that aims to provide bona fide proof of work, the highs and lows of a ferociously independent existence and a couple tall tales from his so-called career in the cutthroat world of contemporary graphic design. Just a regular guy with a trajectory a little dirtier than yours, his talk is open to all oncomers brave enough to show up. If you are a youngster, you may find yourself inspired to attack your design future in a different way. If you are established, you may just leave feeling grateful you don’t have anything to do with him. Hard to say. Be there! Emotion is the Holy Grail of effective, creative marketing. To win with customers, we have to appeal to their emotions. We’ve known that for years. But short of guessing, how can we be sure our messages are conveying the right emotions? Until recently, we’ve relied upon focus groups to measure emotion, but they’re flawed. Focus group feedback is always filtered by our audience’s rational brains and too often, they tell us what they think we want to hear. With advances in neuroscience, we can now understand more about what really connects with our audiences. While not every brand can afford to use fMRI’s to test responses, research has uncovered patterns that everyday marketers can use to ensure their message is creating the desired response. In this session, we’ll cover what marketers need to know about the brain and human emotions as well as some best practices for incorporating neuromarketing into your branding and campaigns. 15
  16. 16. 7417 C 490 C 5315 C 7546 C COOL GRAY 10 C FEB/27 MAIN CO NF EREN C E 3:00 PM BREAKOUT SESSION BREAKOUT /A O BREAKOUT /B Retention vs. Acquisition: Little Things Make a Big Difference STAN PHELPS / FOUNDER AND CHIEF MEASUREMENT OFFICER AT 9 INCH MARKETING C The Lies Consumers Tell Us DAN CARLTON / FOUNDER AT THE PARAGRAPH PROJECT The consumer is finally king. But are we prepared to tell him he’s wearing no clothes? Traditional tell and sell marketing is dead. Marketer’s can no longer afford to spray and pray. Today’s unsung hero is the empowered customer. The challenge is to leverage their advocacy by selling less and giving more. The little things that give existing customers a reason to buy more, to come back more often, and to tell more of their friends. Retention pays. According to Gartner, a 5% increase in retention can boost profits by 25% to 125%. Today’s most successful brands are finally listening to consumers and bringing them into the marketing process. However, before abdicating your brand to consumer opinion it’s important to realize that the consumer is often lying to us. They are lying to us in regards to what they really want or what they need. This is not intentional deception, rather it’s a result of consumers’ inability to understand their true motivations or articulate their desires. In his talk, Stan will make the business case for retention and referral based marketing strategies. Attendees will hear about customercentric marketing lessons from leading brands such as Apple, Disney, Southwest and Zappos. Phelps will offer practical advice and tips on how you can leverage signature added value to drive differentiation, increase retention and generate word of mouth. This session will call attention to the various ways consumers mislead marketers, as well as provide research approaches and techniques that can identify what really drives consumer behavior and how that can lead to more powerful connections with consumers. 2:45 PM BREAK 4:00 PM CLOSING KEYNOTE O Breaking Down Barriers and Bringing Ideas to Life JENI HERBERGER / FOUNDER OF THE FULCRUM AGENCY There is no denying that great brands require strategic design AND marketing. Brands must be made visible to the masses and authentically transform them into customers. Defined as “the action of working with someone to produce or create something,” collaboration is at the heart of creating a unified vision. When brand communicators across the greater organization approach the brand promise from a common space, the ultimate result is consumer loyalty, expanded customer base and increased sales. 5:00 PM CONFERENCE WRAP-UP / CLOSING RECEPTION END CONFERENCE 16 C 7147 C 094 C 5135

Lots of people are. Unfortunately, you’re probably missing the boat on the easiest types of content for converting customers. In this breakout session, Chris will explain the importance of content marketing broken down into three sections — low, medium and high effort content. You’ll see real examples, real conversion data and walk away knowing that you need to harness the power of user-generated content when you’re back in the office. You may even laugh along the way. 17
