Think of social media as a gateway instead of a destination: the beautiful lobby that takes you to the hotel room; an inviting home entry way that leads to the kitchen or dining room. Content and social media can co-exist, mutually thrive and be friends. But how do you keep these two bastions of power from competing and becoming frenemies in your company?

What makes some social marketing campaigns successful while others fail? At Wildfire, we believe the answer lies in understanding your social customer.
A "one size fits all" approach to social media may suffice to generate fans. But in the fast-moving world of social media, generating fans doesn't equate to generating social ROI. When you know your audience as real individuals--instead of interchangeable "fans"--the results of your brand's paid, owned, and earned media dramatically increase.
Join Wildfire as we analyze what it takes to develop a differentiated understanding of your audience's social preferences and behavior. Drawing on experience powering over 250,000 campaigns, we'll provide real-world examples of brands who created integrated, targeted social marketing strategies based on data-driven knowledge of their online audiences. Learn how you can personalize interactions at scale.
