It’s not every day you see a company using social media for a new type of marketing, but that’s exactly what’s happening in Cincinnati, Ohio, where a new digital marketing conference is underway this month.
For the first time in its short history, the conference is bringing together digital marketers, marketers and executives from across the industry to explore how to use social media and digital marketing to win more customers and win back lost market share.
The conference, Digital Marketing Summit, is scheduled to be held June 6-7 at the University of Cincinnati’s Miller School of Business.
It will bring together more than 20 industry professionals to share best practices and insights in the field of digital marketing and social media.
It’s a new trend for Cincinnati, a city that is known for its coffee and pizza restaurants, but which has become a hotbed of the digital economy and a hot spot for new startups.
The Cincinnati Digital Marketing Conference is an annual event that’s set to grow to about 250 attendees in 2019.
The event, which was first held in April of last year, has grown from a one-day event to a three-day conference that’s now open to more than 40 companies and is also set to expand to a full weekend of networking in the fall.
According to the conference’s website, the goal is to provide “an in-depth look at the evolving trends in digital and social marketing, the impact of social media on digital and traditional marketing, and the best ways to build and sustain a successful digital marketing business.”
The conference is set to be a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the entire industry,” according to the event’s official website.
According a description on the conference website, participants will learn how to:Get customer feedback.

And it’s all part of the Cincinnati Digital marketing Summit.
Organizers have been trying to grow the digital marketing industry in Cincinnati since the 1990s, when a group of local digital marketers founded the company that would later become CMI Marketing and became the region’s largest digital marketing company.
In the early days of digital advertising, the city was the hub for many new businesses.
The city had an extensive network of digital companies, including the likes of eBay and Yelp.
But the digital industry has become so large that many smaller businesses have to find ways to survive in the city, said Scott Brown, co-founder of the Greater Cincinnati Business Partnership.
Brown said it wasn’t until 2011 that Cincinnati saw a change in the digital advertising landscape.
A wave of new online advertising and marketing companies emerged, including adtech company Hootsuite, and digital advertising startup Upwork, which also moved into Cincinnati.
But the biggest change came in 2016, when Google announced that it would be expanding its services to Cincinnati and that it planned to create a $100 million digital marketing headquarters in the area.
That came at a time when Cincinnati had a relatively small online advertising market, Brown said.
When Cincinnati opened up to the world in the mid-1990s, it had a population of about 1.4 million people, he said.
But it was rapidly growing as the city grew in population and business activity, and by 2020, the population of the city had more than doubled.
Cincinnati’s population grew by more than 2.5 million people in 2020, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau.
The number of people in the Cincinnati metro area grew by almost 2.2 million people between 2000 and 2020.
But with the economy struggling, it’s become harder for people to afford to live in the downtown area, which is why many people moved to smaller cities like Cincinnati, said Brown.
It was a hard time to grow in Cincinnati.
It wasn’t as competitive as some other cities, like Seattle, where it’s a much more affordable city, he added.
But that’s changed, said Josh Kohn, an associate professor of marketing at Cincinnati State University.
The tech companies have changed, and people are moving to the downtown, and that’s not just happening in a local area, he explained.
The companies are moving in a global way, and so they’re looking to Cincinnati to be where they are in terms of growth, he continued.
With the internet of things coming into play, businesses in Cincinnati are becoming more competitive, Kohn said.
It’s a time where the technology is moving in on a larger scale, he suggested.
Kohn said the new trend is to “look at the market as a whole” in the cities where it is most prevalent, like Cincinnati and Columbus, which he said have “very different climates and very different
