Econsultancy's Peer Summit: What we learned.

Econsultancy held its first American Peer Summit this week, and we learned a lot from the marketers who gathered in New York at the Metropolitan Pavilion.

We brought together about 100 digital marketers from such brands as Conde Nast, The Wall Street Journal, JP Morgan and Yahoo, and sat them down together to discuss their issues and upcoming plans in roundtable discussion led by experts on such topics as email marketing, social media, user experience and site optimization.

It was an off-the-record event, but there were some themes that continued to pop up. Many digital marketers at large brands are seeing a shift in acceptance of online marketing in their companies, though getting their online and offline teams to cooperate on advertising buys and large decision-making is still an uphill battle.


Q&A: Bryan Eisenberg, Co-Founder of FutureNow

Back when dot-com mania was at its peak and marketers crowed about the number of "hits" they were able to attract to their web sites, a voice of reason came out of the darkness and said, in effect, that it's not about the traffic. It's about what you do with the traffic, and -- hello? -- more important, whether that traffic makes money.

That voice was Bryan Eisenberg who's gone on to become a noted speaker, columnist, blogger, co-founder of the Web Analytics Association and author of a string of best-selling books. A new one is in the works: Trim the Fat will draw analogies between what's needed to improve website conversion and the author's recent shedding of 50 (!) pounds.

And Bryan will share those insights at Econsultancy's inaugural U.S. event in New York on Oct. 8, the Peer Summit, as both a keynote speaker and a moderator. We caught up with him for a preview of what he'll be sharing with attendees.
