Current Topics

Selling Social to the C-Suite: Getting Enthusiastic Buy In

One of the biggest barriers to larger scale adoption of social business practices is fear. Fear of the unknown, of the risks, of having the right strategy and the right talent in place to lead the charge. We’ll review the reasons that executives resist social programs, and how you can build a plan and a framework that addresses those concerns with tangible programs and initiatives to not only sell the idea of social business, but get your teams excited and eager to support the shift.

The Future Of Social Measurement: Social Intelligence

Once upon a time, it was enough to just listen to social channels. Then we added in analytics to try and figure out whether what we were doing online was working. The sheer volume and complexity of today’s digital data makes listening, measuring and understanding your data more important than ever before. I’ll walk you through what’s changed, the essential elements of a strong social intelligence practice, and how to think about social data and measurement in a way that actually moves your business forward.

The Real Business of the Social Professional

Learn and understand how community management and social media roles have changed from online forum moderation and campaign coordination into robust and pivotal business strategy roles. I will cover the profile and characteristics of today’s successful social professional, how this role integrates into business today, and why “engagement metrics” aren’t enough to quantify your team’s success.

Setting Smart Digital Marketing Priorities

How do you build a framework that helps you determine where you should be spending your time, money and resources for your social media and digital marketing programs? This presentation will walk you through the important questions you need to ask inside your company and how you need to align your goals in order to determine the roadmap and strategies that will work best for you.
