2. Re-thinking Digital: The Evolution of Mobile & Its Impact on Web Strategies
The two-day 48 West technology and media event was jam-packed with food, music and technology. It showcased industry leaders that are driving the future of technology and gave attendees a collaborative forum in which to network. Pyxl’s founder Brian Winter challenged attendees to re-think their way of marketing on the web by using a method he calls “integrated engagement.” In his presentation, “Re-thinking Digital” Brian put the kibosh on using “the web” as a single medium and introduced the concept of integrated engagement. With the significant rise of mobile users, it’s key to optimize content in order to reach target audiences across multiple devices. Brian kept the audience engaged, discussing ways companies can incorporate mobile strategies into their web marketing efforts and delivering relevant, key takeaways that added value and could be immediately implemented into a marketing strategy.
3. Integrated Engagement: Content, Reach & Context in a Mobile World
Industry experts from media, marketing and tech companies, service providers and non-profit organizations gathered at the Arizona Tech Council Lunch & Learn hosted by Pyxl on February 19th. Our founder, Brian Winter, delivered a fascinating presentation on “Integrated Engagement.” Did you know web browsing in 2013 is expected to occur more via a mobile device than on a desktop? With the increasing number of mobile users, businesses need to include mobile strategies in their marketing initiatives in order to reach customers.
