Top Takeaways from Experience Inbound Wisconsin - a Digital Marketing & Sales Conference

Posted by Andrea Meyers on May 31, 2016 3:48:17 PM

Three years ago, our team hosted the inaugural Experience Inbound event for approximately 100 people in Milwaukee. The goal of coordinating the event was to bring together some of the best minds and educate attendees about inbound marketing and sales strategies that we hoped would make an immediate impact on their business. The event was so well received that in 2015, we jumped at the opportunity to expand our reach and partner with Weidert Group to offer the event in both Milwaukee and Green Bay. This year, we were thrilled to welcome approximately 400 attendees to Miller Park and Lambeau Field for two days filled with strategy – focused speakers and breakout sessions. If you weren’t able to attend last week’s event, here are the top takeaways from Experience Inbound 2016.

Readers are now becoming more adept at cutting through the clutter and identifying a post that is just regurgitated information about the latest trending topic. What readers are looking for now are the pieces of content that set a brand apart – something that shakes up the industry or marries the brand with consumers needs through inspiring and in-depth storytelling.
