NYC Chapter: Q1 Mini-Summit & Networking Mixer

Mar 23, 2016
Tumblr, Inc • New York, NY

Hot off the biggest and most successful event we’ve ever produced, the Mobile Growth Fellowship is coming back to the East Coast with more great content! We’re producing another Mini-Summit at the TUMBLR offices (full address below).

We’re delivering two great panels of mobile marketing experts, and Liftoff will be running a new style of panel based off the game show “Family Feud!” Their “Mobile Feud” panel will playfully pit Mobile Experts against each other in a two-team game of UA knowledge! This will be a fun, but still informative, panel which is sure to give app publishers and developers the kind of broader/all-inclusive strategies to help you break out of any mobile marketing ruts and possibly hear some new great ideas you might have never heard before!

All attendees are welcome to stay for our Networking Party which immediately follows the sessions, and includes an open bar! So, come along, get some great information on mobile marketing, and stay for the fun, cocktails, and networking opportunities…thanks to our amazing sponsors Liftoff!
Please see the agenda below, and sign up right now! See you there!

Deep Dive Into Emerging Monetization
When considering how to effectively implement mobile ad monetization to generate revenue, it's important to understand the types of products out there, and in the past few years there has been a major shift in revenue strategy towards products that are well adapted to freemium economics. Wether you want to aggregate demand through programmatic or conduct business directly, there are different way that publishers are generating revenue.
