Social Is the New Starting Point: Brands as Publishers and Harnessing SuperSharers
On the social web there is no place for ads: there is only content and sharing. Increasingly users are accustomed to a consuming and sharing a blend of the personal, funny, and serious all in an intermingled feed. Brands can succeed on the social web by developing “content gifts” for their audience and measuring the social lift, or earned media, that comes from engaging SuperSharers.
During this seminar, BuzzFeed and Virgin Mobile will discuss what it takes to be successful as a social brand publisher through select case studies.
