This presentation will teach audience members how to learn what their competitors are doing to not only get customers but keep their business. By using tools that are available to everyone on the internet, such as Google Analytics, SpyFu.com, and other helpful free and pay tools, I will take the audience through a step by step example on how to do the following:
. Where and how to collect competitive data
. Where and how to locate your target market online
. How to leverage this data and view the "big picture"
. Initial steps that should be included in all marketing plans
This presentation will teach users how to access tools and learn from their competitors mistakes when it comes to marketing to customers. Based on the information obtained the business will then be able to look at how their efforts compare to the efforts of their competitors. This will allow members of the audience to build an effective strategy for their business, and continue to monitor not only their own efforts but the efforts of their competitors.

What happens when the Director of the White House Office of Social Innovation, the Director of Programming of one of the countries leading media tech nonprofits, and a visionary data viz expert from Google get together?
At this presentation, you'll hear down and dirty talk about the new IMPACT DASHBOARD from the people who built it: it's a super user-friendly cloud app with a Python backend that collects, hosts and visualizes your data in real time, right on your website and your phone. Imagine browser-based reporting with rich visuals and rich interactivity, no plug-in dependencies, and fully open source. No more dry reporting of metrics! No more measuring irrelevant data! No more boring spreadsheets that don't engage and inspire your audiences! This new interface is designed to help any artist or organization or company make a measurable difference in the world. And it's free. SXSW will be the launch of the US public Beta.

The challenge of the future is not data gathering but analysis, trying to make sense of what the tidal wave of information actually means. Dropcam's live 24/7 streaming with DVR, paired with social tools offers a new way of user engagement and data analytics. This and other new technologies allow for much finer grained analysis for data streams, turning previously unusable elements like webcam generated latent video into incredibly rich insights. New uses with streaming media offer new data and analysis that didn't exist before.
