Every minute, writers post more than 1,400 new blog posts; Facebook users share about 2.5 million pieces of content; Twitterers tweet 277,000 times, and Instagram fans share 216,000 photos. How on earth, then, can your blog, video, 140 characters, or photo stand out?
That's the question Stewart Rogers, VentureBeat's Director of Marketing Technology will answer in a webinar designed to help brands boost the visibility of their well-crafted content. By using the appropriate social networks and the right management tools, marketing professionals can transform their blogs, infographics, and visuals into must-view content. Social media management (SMM) is critical to content promotion.
Customers are constantly connected to social networks; the surest way to their minds, brand loyalty (and wallets) is delivering high-quality content when, where, and how they want it. SMM solutions provide you with these capabilities and the means to track, audit, and analyze results.
Rogers will provide some details from "Social Media Management: Tools, tactics… and how to win," including a discussion of some of the best (and worst) 28 major SMM tools.
After the event, you will:
* Understand how SMM can help your brand
* Know the best SMM vendors to investigate for your business
* Recognize the tactics, metrics, and techniques you need to promote your content via social media
* Stewart Rogers, Director of Marketing Technology, VentureBeat
* Jeffrey Smith, CEO, Smule

Everyone wants to be in a socially engaged enterprise but understanding the right level of investment and sequence of activities is often unclear. From a collaborative research project with The Economist Intelligence Unit, PulsePoint Group has calculated the enormous range of very disparate economic performances achieved across six types of socially engaged enterprises. With the highest economic performers achieving a four times higher return than the lowest performers, there are sensible investments in time and money that you should consider to win.
- The lowest and highest performing socially engaged enterprise profiles – from one extreme to another
- The most consistently wrong and the most surprisingly effective investment focus areas
- Plotting your journey to the most economically optimized state of social engagement
In a collaborative study with The Economist Intelligent Unit, “The Economics of the Socially Engaged Enterprise,” executives defined social engagement today as online listening, blogging, and building relationships with online influencers. But the top economic or business return performers have a different view – they will be more focused on ideas and action in the next two years. Big-return companies crowdsource new products (57%), or let customers participate in developing ideas. In fact, they are predicting a significant portion of new products will be derived from social engagement insights. This webinar from PulsePoint Group will explore best cases and practices.
- Research results
- The different flavors of “crowdsourcing”
- Case studies
- What works and what doesn¹t
