Title: Convergence – Why Your Business Needs An Integrated Social Media & Content Strategy NOW

Summary:

The role and value of social media and content has dramatically changed in just the past year. While many business owners are still trying to get their heads around an effective social media strategy; now they have to also think about becoming publishers and content marketers.

Why? The digital media convergence of social, content, search and authority.

The rapidly evolving digital landscape is shifting discovery, conversation, business and buying decisions away from the brand and corporate sites and moving them to a social and content web environment. Companies can either choose to ignore this and risk eventual irrelevance and loss of business to more savvy competitors, or embrace it and thrive in an age of new media marketing.

Reasons for attending

  • Learn actionable tactics that will play a key role in creating a powerful, successful social media and content marketing strategy
  • Learn how and where to distribute your content to ensure it gets to the right audience.

Title: Your Best Influencers Are Your Employees – Creating A Culture of Social and Content

True brand advocacy comes from your company’s culture, not marketing or technology.

If you’re not encouraging and facilitating your employees to promote your brands message and content socially you’re missing out on a significant opportunity. Employee communication and advocacy is changing quickly as new social media tools and platforms evolve and impact the workplace.

Failure to understand and adapt to these changes can significantly impair a company’s performance and in some instances, its very ability to compete.

Recent research shows that as few as 135 employee advocates have a similar reach to 1 million Facebook fans. And did you know that content shared by employees gets up to 8x the engagement of content on brand channels. With numbers like these, it pays not to ignore the impact your employees can have when they share brand content across their social networks.

Yes, reaching and mobilizing employee advocates can be challenging… but, if done correctly, it can also be highly rewarding. In this session I’ll show you how.can

  • Why employee advocates can be your brands best promotional asset
  • How to identify and activate your brands social ambassadors
