Technology is driving a new marketing paradigm. Will you be ready?

In the last decade, technology has fundamentally changed the way companies and customers communicate and interact with one another. Consumers have 24/7 access to almost limitless information and can easily investigate a global network of options. And companies can readily tap into an amazing breadth and depth of information about their customers and prospects.

But as many companies are learning, new information and resources don’t necessarily lead to more productive relationships or effective marketing solutions.

Overwhelmed by the variety of interactive marketing tools and data? We can help. With the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Interactive Marketing program.

During this intensive three-day seminar, our industry experts will teach you how to create an effective blend of online and offline marketing to reach your customers and increase sales and productivity.

Interactive Marketing will teach you to:

Integrate online and offline media for maximum ROI
Combine the science of direct marketing with the technology of new media and you’ll link the efficiencies of mass promotion with the immediacy of one-to-one.
