The future of search is here, with more game-changing developments just around the corner.

And new ways to deliver content across search and social platforms are giving creative marketers more options for driving engagement.

Our Sessions

Location: Virtual
Date/Time: 3:55pm, November 9

Far too often, SEM and SEO are managed in silos, leaving users with a disjointed search experience and causing brands to lose potential customers. SEO and SEM are complementary channels, which requires both teams to be unified in order to optimize the user experience and drive conversions. Join Merkle’s Hannah Johnson, SEO Associate Manager, and Allison Duvall, SEM Senior Manager, to learn foundational elements for creating effective holistic search strategy and how they translate to day-to-day account management.

After this session, you'll be able to: 

  • Educate key stakeholders about why the shift to holistic search is necessary.
  • Evaluate your program from search query to conversion to identify areas of opportunity and growth.
  • Understand how those elements translate to day-to-day account management.
  • Create the plan for how your teams will work together moving forward.
