e!Meedia is a new altex event that has the potential to accelerate fundamental change in the Estonian media landscape forever.
It is perhaps the most important event we have organised so far.
What comes out of these presentations and discussions is likely to cause a reshaping of campaign media budgets in the future.
If you are involved in traditional offline or online advertising/marketing campaigns on either agency or client side then this is an event you cannot afford to miss.
Web publishers who rely on banner revenues should also pay close attention.
What should be the role of the internet in a media campaign?
For some time internet marketing specialists (like altex) have been pushing for internet marketing to play a larger role in media campaigns.
Up to now most clients, advertising agencies and media planners have generally considered the internet as a single channel…and that has generally meant “banners”.
But the times are changing…fast.
Client pressure to include a role for search marketing, social media and email marketing is increasing to the point where it cannot be ignored any longer.
It has been argued that email and search marketing are best for direct response and banners are best for branding…but what about social media?
Doesn’t that have a powerful branding role too?
There are many more questions.
In a typical advertising campaign budget should the lines be redrawn?
Should there now be 5 lines in the internet section of the plan?
1. Banners & Rich media
2. Email Marketing
3. Search Marketing
4. Social Media
5. And Analytics (to measure the results)?
And if this change should happen then where does the extra budget come from?
From the banner budget?
Or from traditional media budget?
Internet adoption is growing fast.
Traditional media is in decline.
Should a greater proportion of offline media budget be diverted to email, search and social?
Or is the banner budget under threat?
Where can agencies acquire the skills and knowledge to make email, search and social work best for them?
Is it time for best practice or is this still the age of experimentation?
At E!Meedia you will not hear the “biased” views of altex or any other internet marketing specialist.
Instead you will hear senior representative from portals, news media and media planners share their views about if and how campaign planning and budgeting should change in the future to accommodate the explosion of consumer interest in, and usage of, email, search engines and social media.
