      February Signature Speaker Series- Activation to Advocacy - AMA Richmond

      #AMARVA Signature Speaker Series Activation to Advocacy Understanding How Your Audiences Use Social and Traditional Media to Make Decisions This session takes the familiar sales cycle that all B2C or B2B audiences use when choosing services and products and elaborates on the intersection of traditional media and social media. Audiences are activated by brands, they research services, they shop a final few choices, they make their choice and lastly, they have the potential to be advocates or activists. In some cases, the decision-cycle takes mere moments, in other cases, it can take years (such as bariatric). Understanding how consumers perceive and utilize the various media in such a cycle is crucial to strategic planning, tactics and calls to action. This session will also touch on ROI in light of such integration. The entire session will be rife with examples and cases from an array of industries, from Hershey’s, higher ed, and healthcare, to financial and fickle B2B. Three key takeaways: 1) Coming to terms with the actual ways our audiences make decisions, beyond our touch points 2) Allowing efforts to complement and integrate to reach our audiences, not compete 3) Explore new ways of thinking about measurement and ROI in light of audience decision making About Dean Browell Dean Browell leads Feedback’s social media charge as Executive Vice President and resident Ph.D. with a passion for how generations interact online.
