Designing for Real-Time Marketing

A session at SXSW Interactive 2013

Saturday 9th March, 2013

5:45pm to 6:00pm (CST)

Social media has increased the speed with which we communicate. We're constantly Tweeting, Posting, Liking, Pinning, Instagramming, and checking in. This fire hose of information combined with the 24/7 news cycle has lead to an emerging field called “Real-Time Marketing," based on the need for marketers to increase the speed with which they engage their audiences. Where there is marketing, there are designers. How do designers thrive in the fast-pace of real-time marketing?

This session will focus on best practices for designing for real-time marketing. Attendees will learn what real-time marketing is, how it is being used, and how design plays a role.
