The Lo Down: Building a Healthy Brand with Love Wellness

Session at-a-glance:

  • Addressing stigmas through brand-building and marketing efforts.
  • Leveraging TikTok and social status to promote brand, product, and well-being.
  • The collaborative relationship between founder and CEO.

People tend to be a little shy when it comes to talking about common health problems such as yeast infections, UTIs and digestion issues — making it all the more important to address. But how do you break through to the often-invisible and taboo, and create trust with an audience around intimate aspects of health and wellness? Lo Bosworth, former star of Laguna Beach, knows a thing or two about that. After experiencing various physical ailments that seemed to lack natural solutions, Lo founded Love Wellness in 2019. Since then Lo has worked to reach, educate, and empower individuals on the importance of gut, brain, and vagina care. Join Lo and CEO Maria Dempsey to discuss how Love Wellness has expanded its audience and mission, and how they’ve built a close, collaborative relationship as founder and CEO.

Tapping Tech for Your Performance Marketing

Session at-a-glance:

  • How to assemble a high-performing martech toolkit and team
  • Strategies for leveraging identity-based solutions while remaining compliant.
  • How to determine KPIs and metrics that are right for your team.

Marketing is meant to perform, right? While there are many different elements at play, performance marketing is certainly having its time in the spotlight. With growing concerns and priorities around privacy, personalization, enhanced experiences, and data, (it’s always about the data), marketers—especially performance marketers—have a whole lot on their plates.

Join Ajay Kapoor, who leads performance-driven marketing at General Motors, as we discuss tapping today’s top martech to optimize your performance marketing, and what leveling up could look like for your business.
