iCrossing and Beam Inc. Discuss How to Leverage Digital Technologies to Build Connected Brands at eBusiness and Channel Strategy Forum

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Oct 22, 2012) - iCrossing, a global digital marketing agency, and Beam Inc. will examine how brands can build closer relationships with their audiences in their presentation at Forrester Research, Inc.'s eBusiness and Channel Strategy Forum.

The Next Round And The Last Call: Creating Connectedness With Lifestyle And Passion Brands*
Few brands stir as much passion and connection as spirits brands. These brands evoke memories, prompt good times, and live in moments of connection, and they have for hundreds of years. Today, the biggest and most compelling advances in technology are falling directly into the world of spirits brands, as people become more connected to information, content, and (most importantly) one another. This session will explore how successful spirits brands like Jim Beam and Maker's Mark are using digital to build connected brands -- or closer relationships with their audiences. This session will explore:

  • The last call: What are some of the marketing methods that brands need to move away from?
  • The next round: How are innovators using digital to build connected brands? What mix of strategy, technology, and media is correct?

11:20 am CDT
