9/12 – Creating Real Connection with Customers with Ciara Klein, Customer Marketing Strategist
Do you ever feel like a brand just “gets” you? That’s when you know they are doing it right. As social has matured as a channel, so has the ways brands can connect with their customers. In this #SproutChat, our Customer Marketing Strategist, Ciara Klein, will cover everything from best ways to reach and welcome new customers to creating personalized experiences that make customers feel deeply connected to the brands they love and trust. Bring your best examples of true connections between a brand and their customers. We’re talking surprise and delight on a whole other level.
9/19 – Social Media & the Evolution of Transparency with Kaitlyn Corvino, Public Relations Strategist
Brands are constantly fighting an uphill battle to earn the trust and business of today’s consumer. Social amplifies transparency, which can create challenges for brands but offers even bigger rewards. Forty percent of people who say brand transparency is more important than ever before attribute it to social media. To figure out how to navigate this new world we invited Sprout’s own Public Relations Strategist, Kaitlyn Corvino, to talk about authentic ways to be transparent on social and when it counts the most. We’ll cover off on topics such as crisis communications, ways to recover from a social faux-pas, and even what role a CEO has when it comes to being transparent on social. You won’t want to miss this one!
9/26 – How to Elevate Connection with Paid Social with Shelby Cunningham, Digital Marketing Strategist
Paid social is often considered a data-driven venture too technical to really fold into your organic efforts neatly. But here at Sprout, we see paid very differently: Every ad is an opportunity to connect. Between ad comment moderation, paid promotion and paid reporting, the opportunities to drive authentic connections alongside your organic social strategy is endless. Join us for a thought provoking #SproutChat where we’ll talk with our Digital Marketing Strategist, Shelby Cunningham, about ways to inspire, cultivate, and analyze real connection in a paid setting.
