Things aren't quite so simple for marketers any more. One-mass communication-based approaches don't work quite the same way. (Take a look at this 2-minute "break up" movie to see what we mean.)
If you use old marketing tactics in this new media world, in fact, the results can backfire on well-meaning companies, who are then left with dead-blogs, unviewed videos and languishing social network accounts. Instead, the smartest companies are pairing a change of strategy, and —just as important—attitude and tone with a community-based content creation approach. The results? They are successfully re-engineering their marketing for new media success.
This seminar will cover the steps to generate an outstanding social media marketing effort that will compel your online communities to engage.
