Social Media's Role in Building Your Brand
Presented by Sergio Balengo, Senior Research Analyst, MarketingSherpa
Your brand is no longer what you say it is-it's what "they" say it is. And the social media marketplace is where "they"-customers, prospects, journalists and other influencers-are talking about your brand. They are forming and sharing opinions that will impact your brand at the speed of light, and you need a clear strategy to effectively foster these interactions. Based on MarketingSherpa's research findings from a study of 1,886 social media marketers and PR practitioners, you'll learn:
- Why branding goals should lead your social media strategy
- Which tactics rated highest for achieving branding objectives
- How to fit these tactics into your marketing mix for optimal effectiveness
- Proven social media practices for building and sustaining your brand
In addition, Dscoop members are eligible for a free trial membership to MarketingSherpa. Salespeople and marketers at Dscoop member companies can sign up at www.dscoop.org/sherpa to take advantage of research, case studies, how-to instructions and discounts from MarketingSherpa.
