      Now, more than ever, the lines between Marketing and Communications have blurred. Brand, reputation and trust are core pillars in a joint Marketing and Communications function. I'm a firm believer that you can't have one without the others, particularly in an age of purpose marketing, centred around editorial.

    Can a Modern Marketing Function be Successful if Communications are Separate?

      Content marketing is the best way to attract eyeballs of the global digital population of just over 4 billion. But while 91% of the B2B marketers use content marketing to reach their audience, a majority of them do not know how to produce engaging content, and they admit it. This results in content cacophony – a deafening noise of random words thrown together that neither create a connection nor evoke emotion. So, what is the actual science behind effectively cutting through this noise and creating truly engaging content?

      The pace of change and the wave of new technologies it brings can leave marketing departments scrabbling to use very new shiny tool that appears. This can lead to a feeling of constantly playing catchup and a messy, disconnected, patchwork approach, both with technology and more broadly. The key to avoiding this is to "Fall in Love with the Problem, not the Solution" We do this by thinking big and creating a coherent end to end user experience, the Tangible Hypothesis, then starting small and testing often. The Tangible Hypothesis helps the Marketing Department engage with the rest of your organisation, breaking down silos and helping to bring about cultural change.

This talk will look at examples of visits to various sections of the BBC website, along with the search terms which drove them and how understanding the users' search intent can lead to a better on-page experience. Analysing your site's traffic and performance often requires agreed KPIs across a wide range of teams and people – by taking a holistic approach we can better understand what the KPIs should be depending on your type of website, content, or product, and whether these metrics need to be adjusted to reflect different search intentions.

Progressive brands understand how to build equity with specific great experiences and "trust" is not about the brand, but sharing those great brand experiences with whom customers really trust - each other.

      The web is an ocean of human generated unstructured data permanently shifting with tides of change. It's a major challenge for Google to gather, process and index unstructured data from the gazillions of websites vying for visibility on the World Wide Web. They are masters of the universe when it comes to using information retrieval science to make sense of the data and rank it. And search engine optimization techniques go a long way to help the process. But the addition of structured data (or schema) provides explicit clues to the meaning of information on a web page and a way for Google to standardize and classify content.
