Introduction by Jon Fortgang, Editor, Figaro Digital Magazine



Advancing Digital Revenue with Video

In an ever-changing sector where consumers are almost spoiled for choice, it can be difficult to maintain engagement, stand out and keep the focus on your business. Video offers endless opportunities to overcome these challenges, but it is important to know how to get the most from your video content. Willem will discuss how and why brands and retail organisations should use video to drive revenue and revolutionise their digital strategy.

Ecommerce Best Practice & Quick Wins in Search

Gareth will examine some of the areas where retailers are most prone to make mistakes. He’ll explain how to improve keyword use on-site, how to use Google+ local listings to improve footfall, and help you make the most of Google Shopping and PPC campaigns.

Multichannel Marketing Opportunities in Ecommerce

Marketing an ecommerce brand (whether big or small) offers many difficulties but perhaps more opportunities, especially in digital. Alex will outline where some of these opportunities lie and explain how marketing is evolving to offer new avenues to drive sales volumes.

Bruno will share his insight into how to engage with customers online by using technologies that answer local information expectations.
