Why the future of marketing isn't a social network

This month's speaker is Marc Binkley who will be talking about the difference between social networks and social objects. Marc will help us understand why cat videos matter, show some companies that have turned themselves into social objects and share 3 things you can do to get your business talked about.

About Marc

15 years of experience in sales & marketing have taught Marc that branding success can be magnified by collaborating across company silos and aligning strategy with consumer behavior. In 2012, Marc started his own company called Sleeping Barber to help others achieve this. Marc's goal is to help you make remarkable customer experiences that grow your business.

    Well Done, Marc ! Making us understand that social networking is not just a dispassionate 'numbers' role but rather building relationships around objects of commonality or interest. You kept us engaged, Marc !
