He built Facebook and Twitter followings of more than 45 and 33 million people respectively, and registered more than a million voters online. He also ran the largest online advertising program in political history and built groundbreaking tools for online fundraising and campaigning. Goff organized hundreds of thousands of volunteers and events through their proprietary organizing platform, Dashboard.
Goff's closing keynote will share best practices from his management of President Obama's digital marketing campaign that included social media, mobile media, and micro-targeting. The digital strategies used by the Obama campaign under Goff's direction were extremely successful and widely credited as being a key factor in the President's election in 2008 and re-election in 2012.
The event also features keynotes by Vivian Schiller, Senior Vice President and Chief Digital Officer at NBC News, and David Payne, Senior Vice President and Chief Digital Officer of Gannett Co., Inc.
