Experiential Social Media: The Key to a New Age of Marketing Value

Social media is arguably the biggest development in marketing since 2000, and “best practices” tend to follow a traditional marketing mold of outbound content sharing. At the same time, a new pool of deep personal conversations about customers’ dreams and frustrations has developed in plain view, but few brands have seen it or tapped it. Experiential social media is an exciting new approach to using digital social tools and processes to personalize firms and brands by engaging deep, using scalable digital tools, and it’s the subject of Chris’s new book, the Social Channel App. In this session, you’ll learn:

  • How people have re-personalized the economy
  • Why personal interaction in digital public is the key to engagement
  • How brands can be personal and efficient using social media
  • Why content with the human touch will outperform
  • Roadmap: Using experiential social media to personalize marketing and build trust, preference and profit
