Sara Waters Google micro-moments

Next, Sara Waters, Business Development Manager at Google, presented on what micro-moments are and the great opportunity that they present for marketers. A highlight included her mention of nomophobia, which is the “fear of being without mobile device, power source, or service area”. Sara’s key advice towards succeeding in a micro-moment world is to be there, be useful and relevant, be quick, and connect the dots. She finished by showing a video about living in “a keyboardless world”.

Brian Yaro Lever Interactive Identifying Consumers' Micro-Moments

Brian Yaro, Lever’s Manager, Digital-Paid Media, then spoke about identifying and capturing your consumers’ mobile micro-moments. Brian discussed how consumer intent is key in developing a multi-channel marketing program. Micro-moments represent those opportunities to match your offering with your consumers’ intent in their moment of need. He discussed four key Google tools everyone should be using today: predictive search, Google Trends, your existing paid search data, and call tracking. He finished by providing examples of real-life implementations and action steps the audience could take right away to improve their marketing efforts.
