Engage! With Brian Solis
Join 2008 SNCR Fellow, author, PR expert and social media guru Brian Solis for a discussion of his latest book, Engage! The Complete Guide for Brands and Businesses to Build, Cultivate, and Measure Success in the New Web.
Social media has disrupted influence patterns, changing the way that organizations interact with their employees, customers, supporters, detractors, prospects, partners and competitors, and allowing consumers to share their opinions and decisions about brands and purchasing decisions. Without engagement in these new online communities and conversations, you will miss important opportunities.
In this session, you will learn how to:
* Create an online presence that truly represents your organization
* Participate in social media platforms to engage your customers and prospects
* Attract online champions and change agents who will identify the social networks you need to reach and influencers to help build your reputation in the networked world
* Adapt your company to market needs and trends based on the connections you create and the knowledge you gain online
* Establish an organizational structure that targets the next new media trends
