Women in Digital

Today more than ever we’re seeing innovation and fast paced developments in emerging media and technologies. Each of these new media offer novel ways for brands to connect with and interact with audiences. These emerging technologies also make a habit of drastically altering the ways in which people shop, consume media, and interact with each other and the world. Today’s women in marketing discuss how can brands tap into these developments to gain a deeper understanding of who their customers are and what they want.
