Vocus, a leading provider of cloud based marketing and PR solutions, announced today the latest in a series of informative webinars. This latest educational seminar, “Twitter: It’s Not Just About Cheese Sandwiches,” will feature social media guru Mark Shaw on Feb. 18, 2014 at 3 p.m. GMT.
For businesses that need the inside track on social media, or for those wanting to hone already existent engagement, this latest Vocus segment will help organizations connect with their target audience, customers, partners and other prospects. Finding news customers, ensuring positive experiences for current ones, and monitoring the sentiment of any business, these are some ways in which excellent social media operations can drive revenue growth. The customer expectation is nowhere better felt than via direct communication and social connectedness. Cision is one company that believes everyone should understand the opportunities and pitfalls.
As for the “Twitter” title, what Vocus means here is, there’s a lot more to the social game than just learning what’s on the surface of user (customer) metrics. Knowing what products a consumer likes is one thing, following through the entire marketing funnel to what Brian Solis refers to as the UMOT, or Ultimate Moment of Truth, this is where savvy businesses will outdistance competitors.
On Tuesday the 18th of February, Mark Shaw will talk about:
- Twitter is the greatest lead generation tool ever invented.
- Social media is not a broadcast station, but a communication channel.
- Social media is an add-on to other marketing activities not a substitute.
- Social media is a game changer for businesses.
