Dominate Social Audience Targeting & Customer Acquisition

Social media distribution in Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, used to be mostly free. Content placed on your walls and feeds was seen and rebroadcast by many people without marketers needing to pay a dime. Now revenue-hungry social platforms have learned to monetize the distribution of “organic” content to the benefit of their shareholders. In many cases users who have already liked your page don’t see your posts! It’s a stark reality, but marketers must pay-to-play using “ad” units the tightly mimic previously free organic units.

The good news is that it’s relatively inexpensive to “re-enable” organic features to dominate. This must attend session will leave you with crucial information to:

  • Drive targeted & scalable social psychographic traffic to content that converts
  • Generate authentic social signals from real users of good authority
  • Earn real links from sites with good domain authority
  • Insulate our sites from harsh search engine algorithm updates
  • Amplify PR distribution to journalists, bloggers, and a myriad focused media-role users
