Content and Mobile Top Cannes Lions Twitter Trends [Infographic]

cannes lions beachIf you have to spend a week at an industry conference this is the way to do it. Cannes Lions is a yearly celebration of creativity in communication. They give out awards in areas such as Mobile, Outdoor, Press and Radio and it’s so coveted by folks in the biz they call it the Oscars of Advertising.

This year, Cannes Lions received 35,765 entries from 92 countries and apparently a good time was had by most. Many of the winning entries were campaigns designed to help a cause or promote safety such as “Immortal Fans” which urges Brazilian soccer fans to become organ donors.

Experts Talk About The Future of Search

While we know that SES NYC just happened last week we have taken some time (well actually Gareth Davies has) to sift through some of the knowledge that was given during SES London oh so many days ago (February to be exact). At this rate we’ll bring you updates for SES NYC in July but we’ll get better :-). Thankfully, great information is still great information so enjoy!

Before this year’s Search Engine Strategies in London a question many business owners wanted an answer to was ‘Where are things headed in the next few years?’ Fortunately I had the pleasure of interviewing a number of the guest speakers, and so I asked them to gaze into an imaginary crystal ball.

People are finally putting budgets into it and you’ll see jobs like ‘content strategist’ being advertised. It shows no sign of abating and I think it will proliferate. I believe that people who come up with good content ideas that can run and run, are useable, search friendly, cross platform and can be maintained over time, will really have the power.’

Infographic for SXSW : Grumpy Cat Beats Al Gore

SXSW By the NumbersNow what would be REALLY interesting is if there were actual video of Grumpy Cat beating Al Gore but no such luck. Instead we have to settle for this infographic from the folks at the Salesforce Marketing Cloud by way of Adweek.

I will make the incredibly uncool admission that I have never attended any SXSW outing so I can’t totally grasp what this means. I suspect it means that I am woefully uncool but my kids remind of that often so that’s not exactly breaking news.

Were you in attendance for the digital side of the SXSW ledger? Is what you see here in this infographic in line with your experience? Share your experience with us in the comments so folks like myself can stand in awe and wonder of what was missed in Austin.
