“Approachable” is the New “Authentic”: Navigating the Most Recent Evolution of Influencer Marketing

Monday, January 22, 2018 • 11am CT

For years now we’ve been hearing about the importance of authenticity in influencer marketing. It’s become the industry’s favorite new buzzword with which we have a bit of a love/hate relationship. And while authenticity is still an important factor, the recent trend of tapping into “micro-influencers” has given rise to another, arguably more relevant, keyword: approachability.

Defending Your Brand

Tapping Into the Power of Your Employer Brand to Boost Recruiting

Wednesday, January 24, 2018 • 2pm CT

Gone are the days of blanket marketing tactics where the people you targeted to buy your products were the ones to come work for you. In this age of transparency, peer feedback plays an even bigger part in where consumers spend money and assign their loyalty. And the same goes for job seekers. With a good employer brand comes a more positive view of your company, significantly more resumes and employees who require fewer salary increases for roles. Join Glassdoor as they share actionable tactics marketers can use to improve employer brand and boost recruiting.

Global Tactics for Global Audiences

Marketing the Abstract: How Do Software Brands Create Memorable Customer Experiences

Thursday, January 25, 2018 • 11am CT

The most effective marketing campaigns appeal to consumers on an emotional level, but how do you make that connection when your product or offering is not inherently emotional? Take cloud software as an example. SaaS companies often struggle to forge emotional connections between their users and their product. As a result their marketing campaigns are largely product-focused. To stand out from this sea of stagnant software brands, Dropbox set out to demonstrate how their brand was about more than just file storage. Join them as they share the strategy and process behind their rebranded creative campaign and how they were finally able to connect consumers to software through sentiment.

Voice Lessons: How Social Can Inform, Impact and Shape Your Brilliant Brand Voice

Friday, January 26, 2018 • 2pm CT

In an overly-saturated marketplace, most brands attempt to stand out by trying to be the loudest in the room. But to really cut through the noise and truly be memorable, you can’t just say what everyone else is saying – you’ve got to either say something different, or say it in a more interesting way. Our very own Director of Brand Content, Lizz Kannenberg, will share her process for winning “brand voice design” – the art of establishing and crafting your brand personality through voice and tone – as well as the brands getting it right.
