We digital marketers have been through a lot in these last few years. We’ve had to cope with rapid changes in the socio-cultural and technological landscape: the increasing ordinary-ness of mobile and social, and the changing habits, whims, and values of an always-on, always-connected consumer.
And yet, our basic problem as marketers remains the same: How do we capture and keep the interest of our visitors?
The bad news is that there is massive content on the web and our user’s attention is very much limited. So we can safely say that we have the same problem; Only this time, the difficulty level has gone up a notch. Or even higher, given the content overload that our audience experiences daily on the web.
Enter marketing apps, which, according to advocates, can “transform your static content into a useful digital experience.” They can potentially help us cut through the clutter and noise of the gazillions of content produced every day. They can help our landing pages stand out in the sea of cookie-cutter pages on the web.
Hey, we can finally practice user-centered design by putting out content that our visitors actually find useful and delightful!
So how do you get started?

This has given her extensive knowledge of the entire online buying cycle and how to create a high-impact integrated marketing plan.
Mary can answer your darnedest questions, such as “will marketing apps really solve my engagement problem?” Or “Does it mean that if I shift to marketing apps, I won’t need a landing page ever again?”
Marketing Apps: The End of the Landing Page?
The concept of parting from trusty landing pages would doubtless shock some marketers. But if you’re willing to take some risk to explore this opportunity for deeper engagement and user interaction, you should join this lively and controversial discussion.
In this session, Mary will reveal why some marketers are saying that landing pages are an outdated concept that should be replaced with personalized and engaging “Maketing Apps.” You’ll learn why marketing apps are the next “must-have” weapon in your conversion optimization arsenal.
