An Uncommon Sense of the Digital Consumer

Location: Sea Cliff Level:

These days, Social/Local/Mobile seems to be driving much of the conversation about online opportunities. But at the end of the day, there is only one constant common denominator across the web: the consumer. An understanding of this consumer and how he/she is influenced by social, mobile, local and emotional experiences online is vital to the success or failure of any web-based venture – from inception to investment to I.P.O. Join Jonathan Carson, Nielsen’s leader of Digital, who breaks down the most valuable digital consumer – and what is holding big brands back from reaching them on the Web. Drawing upon Nielsen’s vast information resources on consumer intent and behavior, he will paint a picture of the digital universe that puts consumers back in their rightful place: Right at the center.

This session is underwritten by Nielsen
