Hosted by Dotdash

11:35 AM - 12:15 PM

Sheraton Times Square

Stage 1

Dotdash was recently named Digiday’s Publisher of the Year and just surpassed $100M in revenue, but when it comes to social media, the digital publisher doesn’t solely focus on the traffic it generates from social media networks like Facebook.

In this fireside conversation, Neil Vogel, CEO of Dotdash, will share how he and his team have been able to scale its digital publishing business in an era where being “social first” is considered the only path to success. For them, what matters most is making the best content, on the fastest-sites with the most respectful advertising.

Attend this session and learn:

  • Why not having an off-platform strategy for video helps them better serve their audience
  • Why it’s dangerous to chase shiny new objects
  • Why there is no place on the Internet for crappy or mediocre content
