Real Time


Rise of mobile



Content marketing turns to content experience story

Experience eco system -> Consumer experience story -> 360-day a year

Mobile is 00s web-site

Mobile is not a new thing anymore.

Mashable claimed that no self-

respecting ad exec would be thinking

about Mobile at SXSW this year. Who's

interested in hearing about more

iPhone apps?

Mobile is the dominant screen now, and

so the assumption is that everyone will

be designing for Mobile first.

SMM seems to be hot only in Twitter

Hashtags. Use them creatively.

Thats all.

Short re-cap to remember

Startups are hot

Everyone wants to make millions with another breakthrough

technology. This industry really needs Steve Jobs

Wearables drive the market

Privacy is new problem to think about

Not everyone is sure there is a problem

Analytics big data -- is hot too

Nobody talks of social media and mobile

Nobody is interested in another mobile app. Everybody is interested

in consumer experience story where SMM and mobile is part of story

But content marketing, consumer experience story is really top interest

What else

Selfies IS a trend

People love to take photosPhoto can be sent to Fb, Twitter, or email

Most of times printed photo is given out as well

Gif photos are popular as hell

If you want to gather a crowd use memes

Seriously. Memes in any

implementation work 100%

As interactive installation

or as banner

SXSW learnings1. Ukraine is not so far behind global marketing trends, really. In terms of crisis

management in SMM we are even better Probably the only exceptions are mobile and wearables here the gap is the biggest.

2. As for SXSW:

Dont go alone

Plan schedule:

Either choose speakers

Or sessions with one speaker. Dual/trio conversations are mostly loss of


Meet people at networking events. Its ok to be awkward

Startupers most of times are ready to talk business. But be ready to stand in line.

Free meals A lot. Wow.

* To increase chances it is specifically recommended to attend SXSW Interactive
