Kicking Community Ass: Building Better Influence

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Saturday 12th March, 2011

3:30pm to 4:30pm (CST)

Speakers: Sudha Jamthe (Social Media strategist, PayPal bio here http://mashable.com/author/sudha...) and Dave Peck (bio her http://thedavepeck.com/about-2/)

Come to find out how to spread influence in 10 steps or less. You have influencers and evangelists in your community, how do you know who is who; how do you stick to the spirit of social media to listen to customers and make your community rock!

This session will teach you what works in real corporate communities, how to make sense of your social media metrics reports to make it work to build influence in your community.

Dave and Sudha will bring real world best practice of what works and what doesn't from Intuit, AOL, PayPal, Coco Cola, Wells Fargo, The Grammys, and NPR.

LEVEL: Intermediate
