Below is the session description from the SMX East website:

“Mobile devices now make it possible to track online-to-offline store visits and conversions. Marketers can also retarget store visitors online, using beacons and other methods. As these new tactics become increasingly common, “proxy metrics,” such as impressions, clicks and views, will be replaced over time. Imagine being able to optimize campaigns against store visits instead of CTR; it’s starting to happen. This session explores current offline attribution methods and online retargeting, as mobile collapses the distinction between the digital and real worlds.”
