About the Program
Many marketers have a love/hate relationship with social media marketing. They know they “have to do it” that it’s the “right thing to do”, but they continue to struggle with generating tangible, measureable results they can use to justify their social media investment to their CFO and/or CEO.
At this workshop, you will first learn how to think more strategically about your social media marketing plans. More specifically, you’ll decide what business and marketing metrics you’re trying to impact and what part of the marketing funnel you are trying to influence with social media?
