If you work in digital marketing, chances are you stress over things such as data, analytics, metrics, KPIs, insights, and sentiment for your brand and the content you create. Each of these terms have become more important year after year, and the current ecosystem of social media monitoring and analytics has officially matured.
At SMW New York, several sessions are confirmed to help both data-rookies and veterans of analytics explore how data and insights can help us make smarter business decisions every day. Here are six sessions already confirmed to learn about data in marketing and content.

This session, led by Mark Howard (Chief Revenue Officer, Forbes Media) will cover the benefits of always-on native advertising, specifically looking at the benefits of ongoing publishing campaigns, value of data and analytics for improving content, and the evolution of thought leadership.

This masterclass will focus on how to leverage the data you have, and the data you don’t yet have, to determine who will buy your product, pay for your service, or hire your team. Jeffrey Lancaster (Head of Product, Decoded), will take you on a whirlwind tour of how open data and APIs (social media and otherwise) are being leveraged by industry leaders to determine the best ways to connect to consumers.

Kate Lewis (SVP and Editorial Director, Hearst Magazines Digital Media) will join three Hearst Digital site editors to explore how large scale increases in social followings are achieved, and compare the effectiveness of two differing social strategies: the use of performance metrics and audience data to inform social content, and following gut instinct to create posts that resonate with audiences.
4. Making The Invisible Visible: The Evolving Roles Of Data, Trust And Transparency In Advertising And Publishing
(Presented by The Economist Group)
Marketers and publishers are using more and more innovative methods to create, deliver and disguise digital advertising. Native advertising is the latest under scrutiny from the FTC, which released new guidelines last month, but it won’t be the last as more examples come to light where advertising is indistinguishable by consumers from content.
5. Building A Startup Under The Infrastructure And Data Of A Legacy Media Company: A Great Big Story
(Presented by Great Big Story)
In this session, you’ll learn how to build a content strategy that’s informed by data taken straight from your social media properties. Find out the secrets that can harness your data for audience targeting, distribution and much more. Great Big Story, a socially-distributed video network that covers real stories, will lead this talk.

The volume of data and insights available for social media is changing how agencies and platforms strategize, spend, and steer clients. An analytics-driven world means an elemental shift in how ideas are informed by data to better reach audiences. This session features speakers from VaynerMedia and Pinterest, and will answer the question: Which comes first, big campaign ideas, or testing multiple creative pillars to identify the big idea?
