Social media is evolving very quickly and encompasses a wider range of media and subjects than it did a year ago. Companies often make the mistake of trying to focus upon all forms of media to the exclusion of a sensible and effective approach to marketing in appropriate media. Hence, they run the risk of sending the wrong message and even violating the law; as has happened with excessively brief advertising of regulated products on Twitter.
With so many newly emerging opportunities in social media such as video, mobile, and even in basic advertising, a pragmatic approach is needed to organize and budget for social media marketing. More companies allow or even encourage their employees to be advocates of their brands which has significant benefits, but also poses some serious risks.
In this two hour, live webcast, a panel of thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will discuss the most significant issues of Social Media in Marketing. The speakers will provide advice and best practices to ensure the development of a sensible and compliant social media strategy for marketing in 2015 & beyond.
