Welcome to the Strategic Marketing Day
An outlook towards the next marketing - 2020. The merge of strategy, innovation & social marketing

A new name…

The Strategic Marketing Day is the new name of the Social Media Day. After 7 years, social has become a part of the general company strategy. Time to go further into details on what strategic marketing is all about!

A well-known formula…

You can still follow us on Twitter with #smdayBE, because the formula itself won’t change. You still have a full afternoon to learn and discover the secrets of a working marketing strategy. And the time to network with other marketing professionals.

High level marketing intelligence…

Gain marketing knowledge with tips, tricks, cases and insights of national and international speakers and companies. You will be able to start implementing this knowledge immediately after a #smdayBE edition.

Buurman, wat doe je nu?

Nick Decrock
CEO @ Postbuzz

Of beter gezegd, wat doe je niet meer? Globalisering, digitalisering en toenemende verstedelijking hebben de buurt rondom ons in de anonimiteit gedrukt. We hebben geen idee meer van wat er onder onze neus plaatsvindt. Zelfs de buurvrouw blijkt niet meer sexy … tenzij ze op Tinder zit 😉 Hetzelfde kan gezegd van de lokale handelaars, verenigingen en zelfs onze gemeente. Uit het oog is uit het hart, verdrongen door globale online spelers die alle aandacht en koopkracht wegnemen die er nog rest. Het wordt hoog tijd dat die plek waar we wonen, waar onze kinderen naar school gaan, waar we graag een pintje gaan drinken, … terug de aandacht krijgt die ze verdient.

Using data from social media to profile consumers

Jun Stryckers
Business Development Manager @ Social Karma

Profiler unlocks and harnesses the power of the data that lies behind Facebook.

On the social network we all share details about our life: things we do, things we like, who we are connected with, the music we love, the causes we defend, who we vote for, what we buy or consume, what sports we practice, what media we watch, read or listen, etc.

Profiler takes all this Facebook data in order to create persona with exclusive insights (> 3500 criteria) about consumer demographics, interests, behaviours and much more. As a result, the market research outputs are highly accurate, and attractive to marketers and other marketing professionals seeking to identify new opportunities for growth or channels to connect with consumers. The service qualifies the audience of your choice (Customer database, Facebook fans, People interested in a specific Brand, Website visitors, etc.) on almost any type of criteria. Our new market study approach allows you to ask an unlimited number of questions to an incomparable sized panel.

With Profiler you can get to know what really inspires and motivates your target groups. Profiler helps Agencies and Brands to increase their customer Intelligence.

Remember , Knowledge is power and your customers are your greatest source.

De consument als cyborg: de toekomst van wearables en implantables

Antoinette Hoes
CEO @ Wunderman Amsterdam

Consumenten kwantificeren steeds meer aspecten van hun dagelijks leven, of het nu het aantal stappen zijn wat ze nemen of microchips die in contact staan met het zenuwstelsel. Na de wearables zijn de implantables de toekomst. Het lijkt science fiction, maar het lichaam als het volgende merk-interface is dichter bij dan we denken.

Door consumenten de controle over hun gezondheid en hun welzijn te geven kunnen merken sterke banden met hen smeden en krijgen ze toegang tot het hedendaagse goud: gebruikersdata. In haar sessie deelt  Antoinette Hoes, CEO van Wunderman Amsterdam, haar kennis en inzichten over de toekomst van wearables en implantables en bespreekt ze hoe marketeers scifi en de consument als cyborg kunnen omarmen.
6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
