Spending Sherpa: A Startup's Guide to Navigating Agencies & Brands
Digital agencies play a significant role in the media ecosystem - not only are they always looking for innovative technologies to incorporate into their clients' campaigns, but they are often early adopters of new internet services (mobile, social, & ad tech) to utilize in-house as well. Yet it's a challenge for a small startup to attract the attention of the right people within these decentralized digital agency organizations and to get on the radar of these large brands with significant ad spending power. How does a startup navigate this world effectively and efficiently? Our discussion with notable agency and brand execs will explore from a startup's perspective:
- John Wolfarth, EVP Digital Operations Mullen
- Jeff McMahon, CEO of Agency Oasis
- Jessica DeVlieger, Vice President Strategic Accounts, Communispace
- [Moderator] Dave Balter, CEO of BzzAgent
