  • 7 Deadly Social Sins

    by Scott Stratten

    Being social is good for business, most of us know that. But what happens when it isn’t? Greed, lust, envy and the rest of the sins are alive and well in business and they seem to thrive when people try to engage online. This session will cover what not to do when engaging an audience, not only in social media but offline as well. Does a unicorn really die if you ask the ROI of social media? Can Pinterest save your unread blog? Can you legally smack somebody who adds you to their mailing list after getting your card at an event? These and many more sinful questions will be answered.

    At 9:00am to 10:00am, Tuesday 5th June

  • Selling Social to Skeptics

    by Tamsen McMahon

    While the number of people, businesses, and organizations active on social platforms continues to grow daily, not everyone is sold on the value of social media marketing. And while you may “get it”—the whys and hows of social media marketing—sometimes it seems like an impossible task to convince skeptics to suspend their disbelief and dive in. This session explores what skeptics want and need at every stage of their belief, and how to deliver that to them.

    Key Points
    1. How to identify the key questions in skeptics' heads—and how to use them to build your case
    2. A seven-step process that every "Social Skeptic" goes through, from Shock to Integration
    3. How to recognize where skeptics are in that process, and what information they need (and in what format!) to help move them to the next phase
