Focus on Session: Data as a Revenue Channel

October 06, 2011—3:30 pm

For commerce focused sites, advertising can be treated as an afterthought or worse - a distraction from the site's core business. This session will discuss the transformation one company has taken to develop a strategy that allows commerce and advertising initiatives to support each other. At the center of this strategy is a focus on the value of data that applies to commerce and non-commerce sites as well.
