Understanding how to view, build, measure, and communicate marketing initiatives and wins are critical to sustained success. What do shareholders care about? How do you best align with sales?

These are all questions that Steven Zahurones and the team had to answer when they took on the challenge of bringing marketing to InteliChart for the first time in the company’s history.
It is no secret that multicultural consumers are transforming the U.S. mainstream. Today’s multicultural consumers demand touch points that are culturally relevant and authentic. Brands can no longer afford to put multicultural marketing on the back burner.

Join us on Wednesday September 13 for a digital marketing event with Jason Keath at Union. Register here.
Having a system for creativity is overlooked at many agencies and brands because it's expected to be a given. That the people we hire are the creative process. Buying more whiteboards or just planning more brainstorms rarely does much to increase the creative ideas you're able to generate, as an individual or company.
Jason Keath, founder and CEO of Social Fresh, flips standard creative thinking on its head as he makes the case for more bad ideas. Jason has worked with some of the largest companies in the world to train their digital marketing teams and design a better creative process. Learning how to define and encourage bad ideas across your organization will make your business more innovative and more successful. Innovative companies see an increase in sales, talent retention, and productivity. But it requires a commitment and refocus on creative culture. Do you have what it takes to invest in more bad ideas?

Visual social media platforms such as Instagram are on the rise, and photos posted by consumers on such platforms often include brands.

Nima Jalali is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Marketing in the Belk College of Business at UNC Charlotte. Dr. Jalali’s primary research interests include social media and digital marketing.
