Be a part of the DMAC@USM 2017
The topics are solicited in, but not necessarily limited to the following areas: digital advertising, online marketing, the integration of traditional advertising with digital platforms, marketing technology, mobile marketing, geo-targeting, social media marketing, marketing analytics, data or information fusion, and data-driven marketing. Each presentation will be limited to 15 minutes.
During the competition, student teams will invent, refine and brainstorm digital promotional ideas, develop digital marketing campaigns, run their campaigns and measure their results. (see Recommendations for DMAC@USM 2017 and Tips for Implementation and Execution). Student teams will summarize their campaigns and data, and present their results to marketing experts from local companies.
To kick off the competition, each student team will create and upload a short YouTube video (i.e., 3-minute) introducing their team. The introduction may provide the following information: team structure, skill set, related experience, unique style/culture, etc. This does not have to be over-produced. Maybe just a shot of your team in front of a laptop sketching out the big idea and a bit about why your team is well-suited to turn the idea into reality. An introduction video is due on March 17, 2017 (Email the YouTube URL to email@example.com).
