TBA Address 1 Austin, TX 78751


Come network and learn with the best and brightest of Austin's marketing scene. 512 Interactive is kicking off the marketing series for 2015. We'll start with a networking reception including light appetizers and complimentary drinks from 6:00-7:00.

While digital interactions in general have exponentially increased since the advent of the smartphone, (opens, clicks and engagement in general are all way up), revenue has not followed at a comparable rate. This is called the smartphone paradox. In this session, Forest will be discussing the smartphone paradox, and how top brands are overcoming it through leveraging the inbound call channel. Many top brands understand that the customer journey can't be contained to digital interactions alone, and are turning to the inbound call as a way to convert those tire kickers into happy, revenue producing customers through cutting edge call intelligence solutions, allowing digital marketers to attribute inbound call revenue and optimize their spend accordingly."
