Here's what marketing teams are counting on to improve their client conversion rates this year. With the landscape of B2B marketing changing at a rapid pace, creative content leaders and teams need to stay ahead of the curve if they want to gain brand recognition among prospective clients in the marketplace. As we head into the new year, 19 Fast Company Executive Board members each offer one trend that they are most excited about and why other leaders should keep an eye on as well to promote their growth of business throughout the entire year.
In the mid 1990s, a core group of creatives working at Industrial Light + Magic (ILM) began producing ILM’s events, including wrap parties and tradeshows. Realizing the ILM blueprint of merging technology, craft and entertainment could be leveraged to transform brands into live events, they left to form Trademark Event Productions in 1997. Trademark retains that experiential DNA in every event element, and has a roster of creative talent that is the best in the business. We offer a turnkey, highly efficient production process led by a team of executive producers, creative directors and directors that collaborate with your marketing team – aligning brand-focused messaging across all media platforms. Talking directly together ensures you are heard, expedites concept development and streamlines the entire production process. That efficiency drives increased ROI in the form of social hits, media impressions, and many other KPIs for much less than you’d think.
