Franchising Digital Marketing & Technology Best Practices
IFA’s FranCamp 2013: Digital Marketing & Technology Best Practices for Franchising will be held on May 14-15, 2013, at the Loews Atlanta Hotel in Atlanta, GA.
Technology and social media related topics are some of the most talked about in franchising. Marketing professionals, CEO's, franchise development staff, and franchisees have spent a considerable amount of time establishing road-maps on the use of social media marketing. We know that social media is a rapidly changing field and one of the biggest challenges is to find hands-on, industry specific conferences.
For years, IFA members have clamored for IFA to develop an event that addresses these technology and marketing issues specifically for the franchise industry and the unique challenges it faces. With that in mind, we brought together a task force that include a group of franchise experts whose expertise spans technology, security, and marketing to develop an event that they would find valuable.
This conference is designed to help marketing, communications and information technology franchise professionals navigate the maze of digital marketing and technology solutions available to franchises today. We're bringing together the leading experts in cloud computing, security, mobile marketing, lead generation and much more.
We were able to secure an outstanding keynote speaker. Google's Jenya Denissova runs the team responsible for selling Google AdWords, display, video and mobile products to small and medium businesses through traditional media partners and franchise focused partners in North America. I can't wait to hear her thoughts on how franchises can use Google to better build their businesses.
It’s time to move beyond the hype of social media and invest in the strategies, protecting your franchise brand, measurement tools and apps that will build and engage a franchise and organization with their communities.
We want to make sure you find the value in your trip. We've designed sessions that will provide real-world solutions. A great example is our Flash Panels. This 90-minute session features experts presenting solutions to common problems we all face. What makes this so special? They only have 120 seconds to present that solution. Breaking it down into only the essentials you need to know.
