About the Session: How to Navigate Digital Advertising Options

It’s impossible to open your laptop or turn on your phone these days without being served various forms of digital advertising. From Google AdWords to social advertising, to programmatic ads, pre-roll, retargeting, native ads, and sponsored content…the options, the terminology, and the costs can be difficult to navigate! On top of that, the technology is changing nearly every day, making a murky space almost impossible to keep up with.

This virtual workshop will:

  • Provide a brief glossary of the terms relevant to digital advertising;
  • Discuss whether digital ads are the right choice for branding vs. lead generation; and
  • Provide tips and checklists for developing a simple, cost-effective campaign to maximize an entry-level budget.

Attendees are encouraged to read Marnie Grumbach’s Mainebiz column, “How to Plan and Launch a Digital Advertising Campaign,” prior to the session.
