Google: The PR Triple Threat
June 25, 2014 4 – 6 p.m.  

Vladimir Jones
677 S. Colorado Blvd., Suite 200
Denver, CO 80246

Join PRSA Colorado for an educational program all about Google’s media, social and measurement platforms, with a view of the combined effects when using an integrated approach. The program will be led by Vladimir Jones, a Google Certified Partner Agency, who will help attendees become familiar with the varying platforms, including how they can support public relations efforts. Attendees will get an opportunity to see the true power of these tools and their integration through a case study.

Following an overview of the platforms, attendees will have an opportunity to participate in one of three breakout tracks.

Breakout Track 1: Google+

When it comes to Google+, many are still asking: What is Google+? What is a +1? Does anyone actually use Google+? While the last question is an easy “YES,” the others deserve some discussion. If you’re not leveraging Google+ in your PR efforts, you are missing out on a viable, effective and downright necessary customer engagement tool.

Key takeaways include:
• How Google+ can increase your search presence and drive brand equity
• How Google+ is different than other social media platforms
• How to set up, maintain and optimize your Google+ presence

Breakout Track 2: Google

Display and AdWords Ask just about anyone what Google is, and 9 times out of 10 you will hear "search engine." And each of those responses would be punctuated with "duh.” Google is an ad network. Sure, Google does a lot of different things, but they all revolve around advertising and promotion. The truth is that when people need to find something online, their first step is usually search. If content is king, then context is God. And if you’ve ever wondered how to capitalize on that kind of clear intent, you should attend this breakout. Take the mystery out of the medium, and lob your questions at a Google Certified Partner.

Key takeaways include:
• The newest (and upcoming) features of Google AdWords, Google Display Network
• The 3 rules of effective AdWords
• How to put the right message in the right place at the right time.

Breakout Track 3: Google Analytics
What's a good bounce rate? If you've ever heard that question (or wondered about it silently), you owe it to yourself to attend this session. Get a down-to-earth view of web analytics that will help you shift the focus away from vanity metrics such as "page views," and provide your organization with measurement strategies and tactics that directly impact your bottom line. Let’s face it, numbers don’t mean a thing unless you understand what they mean and how to use them to your benefit, and a solid reporting framework can make all the difference in tracking success and being able to provide results for your supervisor or client.

Key takeaways include:
• The difference between a metric and a KPI
• Strategies for contextually interpreting data
• A simple, yet effective reporting framework used by top analysts
