Creating adaptable content for the mobile web (8/07/15)

We’re in the white heat of the mobile revolution. Already many businesses are seeing over 50% of their traffic from mobile devices, and this trend is only likely to continue.

Content is consumed in different ways on mobile devices. Attention spans are often shorter, and the scope for reading and scanning differs significantly depending on screen size. For content marketers, this presents a challenge: how to ensure that content maximises its impact across all screen sizes and contexts?

We will look at best practice for designing and creating content for the mobile web, whether it’s responsive, adaptive, mobile or native, with examples and case studies from the brands, businesses and agencies that are doing it right.

Upcoming Breakfasts
Digital Breakfast Sessions 2015
Video content for engagement and lead generation (9/09/15)

By 2017 video views will account for 69% of all consumer internet traffic, according to Cisco. The growth rate is staggering, and any business that doesn’t include video as a major component of its content strategy is doing so at its peril.

Video content is no longer just the preserve of YouTube. At the end of 2014 Facebook became the leading platform in terms of video uploads and shares. The imminent launch of Twitter’s video product will add further competition and a new dynamic to the medium. Add to that the impressive growth of short video formats, like Vine and Instagram, and it’s clear that video is quickly becoming the most engaging content type on the web, and especially through social media.

This session will show you how to implement video successfully into your content strategy, and showcase what brands and organisations are doing to win the hearts and minds of customers through video content.

Native advertising: opportunities for brands and publishers (14/10/15)

2014 saw dramatic growth in native advertising spend and experts predict higher spending in this area for the next three years and beyond.

But this growth doesn’t come without its challenges. Research has shown that 21% of readers have mistaken a native ad for editorial content, and 30% are unsure if they have. This can lead to a lack of trust and disgruntled customers.

This digital breakfast will showcase good examples, provide tips for best practice, and explore what content marketers need to do to ensure they do Native Advertising right.

Content and data: brand strategies for wearables and the ‘Internet of Things’ (11/11/15)

The ‘Internet of Things’ (a trend that sees more and more physical products connected to the internet) has been lauded for some time, but there are signs that we could be witnessing the dawn of this new era in 2015.

The government has announced plans to invest £45m into these technologies, and Ovum predicts that the number of machine-to-machine connections will increase to 360.9m by 2018. Meanwhile, for the consumer the launch of Apple Watch may well provide the tipping point for usable internet-connected devices.

The data provided by these products has the potential to revolutionise the targeted marketing of products. But how can content providers and brands take advantage of this major cultural shift? And how will people use watches, drones and other internet-connected devices in their day-to-day lives? Hear from experts and advocates of these technologies, to stay informed of this vital aspect of the digital world.

Expert panel: Best of the web 2015, plus predictions for 2016 (9/12/15)

If there’s one thing we can expect in digital media it's that change is constant. By now it should be clear that every 12 months brings new challenges and new opportunities for brands and marketers.

We’ll analyse and assess the significant trends in 2015 and point to the major factors for content marketers to focus on in the next 12 months.

You can be sure that whatever’s coming next, it’s going to be significant.
