Lots of companies across the country are talking about it. Agencies, public relations firms, and other companies are offering different services. What is it – blogs, wikis, RSS, user generated content all make up with is commonly referred to as “social media.” Let’s face it, not every marketing strategy or tactic will work for your company to help you achieve your business objectives. As powerful as sites such as YouTube, Second Life or MySpace they may not be the right place for you to reach your target customer or they may be too costly for the budget that you have been given, so what is left?
How can you (or your client) benefit from applying social media practices to your business?
Can applying social media to your campaign help you to gain more clients or make money?
Maggie will discuss how everyone’s talking Web 2.0 – but what does it mean? In this session, she’ll go over the hard facts: what people are doing online, why you need to pay attention and how your business can reap the benefits. The best part? You’ll get the numbers to back it all up.
Baron will talk about the relevance of viral marketing in todayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s marketing landscape – showcasing how SEGAL built a name for one of its clients with a super-chic interactive campaign. Learn how SEGAL leveraged womenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s love of celebrity and fashion to create a brilliant, award-winning campaign that combined Web elements with television and media partnerships to draw more than 300,000 unique visitors and engage more than 20,000 women over a 13-week period.
