Social Matures: How it’s Impacting Your Advertising and Bottom Line (featuring Jeff Feldman Sparks, Director of Strategy, Digital Marketing Business)
Social media has forever changed the way that consumers interact with brands. Yet it has quickly evolved from a novelty for corporate communications, to a critical 2-way engagement channel with prospects, customers and loyalists. Yet few brands and agencies truly understand this new paradigm and are applying best practices to make social media really work for them. Join industry experts as they discuss how they are using social media and how it impacts their approach to everything from creative, media strategies, communications, organizational structures, and more. And, most importantly, how they are driving results that impact the bottom line.
