The Pulse of Creativity, Data And The Future of Brands.

We live in a culture of change. Most brands are overwhelmed by the massive shifts they have to make to their business models. Disruption is everywhere. Digital transformation is imperative. We live in the Uber-ization of everything. There are several new (and dramatic) realities that will force businesses to rethink many of their commonly held beliefs about what works in business today, and what the future may look like. Interestingly, this is less about the evolution of technology and much more about how consumers have become that much more efficient in this very different landscape. Bring an open mind, because the world continues to change and challenge brands like never before. The new leadership is being a digital leader. Algorhythm is your compass.


Transform Your Business, Your Future Depends On It

There are five movements that have changed business forever and yet, the vast majority of brands are doing little to anything about it. The next five years of business will be about the convergence of these five major movements, which will require companies to adapt like never before. Transform or die? Some will struggle with this shift while others will simply roll along as the adoption incurs.

The trick is in capitalizing on this moment in time, understanding these movements and being ready for your future (a future that will move at a much quicker and real-time pace).

What you do with this moment will be telling. It will also set the pace for everything that flows out of your brand for the next decade.

Sex With Data

The Shift From Data To True Consumer Loyalty

When businesses and professionals hear words like "data," "analytics," and "loyalty programs" their eyes tend to glaze over. Then again, there is nothing sexier about a hyper-loyal customer, and how they spread the good will of a brand.

This is not about loyalty programs or consumer data, it's about understanding that we now live in a day and age where everything is measurable, actionable and able to be optimized in near real-time.

The reboot comes from rethinking data, loyalty programs, customer data and sentiment monitoring as it evolves and becomes more human. These new relationships not only drive profit, but also create true economic value to the brand.

Media Hacker

How Brands Thrive In A World Where Everyone Is Creating Content

Take a look around, newspapers, TV stations, radio and even magazines are all transforming to be "digital first." Famed late night TV host and comedian, Jon Oliver, gets one million viewers for his season finale. While YouTuber, Bethany Mota, has over 9 million subscribers to her fashion channel. Currently, Google's advertising revenue is bigger than all of print media combined in the U.S. Brands must become media hackers. The dramatic changes that have taken place in the media landscape continue to evolve. Now, for a business to thrive they must become content creators, builders of multiple media channels and the owner of content networks. Everyone can (and is) a creator, publisher and curator of content. Businesses can now tell a new brand narrative. This is your content marketing booster pack.

MECA Communications

Mitch Joel - To be candid: I was beginning to despair just slightly - I'm afraid I found many of the earlier sessions really quite disappointing. I'd deliberately avoided getting too deep into the obvious topics in my opening remarks, thinking that the early speakers would cover all the basic ground for me. By the time we got to lunch, I was starting to think we had a complete flop on our hands.

I don't think it's an overstatement to say that you pretty much saved the first day. In fact - the whole thing would have been a much different and much better event if we'd had you as keynote... If I have anything to do with it, they'll not only invite you back for the next event - they'll give you a much bigger role.”
