DMA's 'Web Marketing: Design. Navigation. Analytics. Understanding the Big Picture' Seminar Brings Together Creative and Technical Direct Marketers
October 22, 2007 — It's been said that there's no "I" in "Team, but not when "I" stands for Internet. Optimizing the power of Web marketing requires teamwork between the creative and the technological sides of the process. In the new DMA seminar, "Web Marketing: Design. Navigation. Analytics. Understanding the Big Picture," marketers from both sides of the fence come together to gain a thorough understanding of what it takes to market a Web site to its full potential.
This powerful DMA seminar provides a comprehensive view of Web marketing: from technical design of the site, through creative and search engine marketing content development, to analytics and measurement. This course gives clear direction, providing time-tested steps to boost Web site ROI for both marketers and programmers.
Instructor Matt Bailey, founder and president of SiteLogic, will bring it all together during the November 12 and 13, 2007, seminar, which will be held at the DMA Seminar Center, 1120 Avenue of the Americas, 13th floor, New York, NY.
“This will be one of the only seminars that will show the big picture,” Bailey said. “Starting with the Web site development and creation and how that effects the marketing of the Web site. The goal is to show the aspects of marketing a Web site and how success is based on the necessary teamwork of technical, design, and marketing personnel. Some of the simplest changes will result in drastic improvements to the reach and visibility of a Web site. Businesses can’t afford not to know these Internet marketing practices.”
