comScore Update: A Digital Year in Review – What You Need to Know Moving Ahead
The last few years have represented a critical juncture in a relatively brief history of digital media; a period that was marred by the overhang of a global economic recession that had a particularly negative impact on the U.S. advertising and e-commerce markets. But it was also a period in which digital consumer activity soared, new innovations grabbed hold in the marketplace and businesses got more serious about navigating the digital landscape. In order for digital marketers to position themselves for success in the year ahead, one must begin by reflecting on what has happened over time and how the prevailing trends set the stage for 2012 and beyond. Among the many questions that will be addressed in during this session include: •

  • Which consumer trends dominated the digital media landscape in 2011?
  • How are people spending their digital media consumption time?
  • Which new and emerging technologies and services are capturing the attention of the marketplace?
  • What is the state of the digital advertising market?
  • How are trends in the mobile market changing the digital media landscape? comScore’s annual Digital Review offers an overview of the prevailing trends in digital media usage during the year and considers their implications for the year ahead. This report will examine the trends in Internet usage, search activity, e-commerce, online video consumption, online advertising, and mobile, and what digital strategies will be most important for success in short term.

A Harvard Business School Case Study: Evolving the Brand, Preserving the Heritage

Mercedes. Disney. L.L. Bean. Harvard. What do these brands have in common? They all have a meaningful and relevant past – a heritage. They have been passed through the generations and over time have established a brand personality that is solidified in the minds of consumers. This is often a strength but we know that brands who fail to evolve can cease to lead. In fact, of the 500 companies that appeared on the first Fortune 500 list in 1955, only 71 hold a place on the list today. Heritage brands have a unique challenge – how to evolve and innovate while preserving those things that animate passion for the brand – tradition and legacy. In this session we will explore how some brands (including Harvard Business School) are working to strike that balance.

Master Class Special Guest:
Brian Kenny, Chief Marketing and Communications Officer, Harvard Business School
