Last night’s event was filled with a dynamic discussion on social media, and how to utilize various tools, content to create viral campaigns and better brand company awareness. Every panelist provided valuable insights on certain tools to use to measure “influence”, such as: Quora, Peer Index, Klout, Digg, Reddit...etc. HubSpot’s example and books were often brought up as great examples of how to utilize marketing evangelists as key players to spread the word for companies.
The discussion also covered how to maximize LinkedIn groups, Twitter, Facebook pages. Panelists had strong opinions and thoughts on traditional advertising marketing vs. new media marketing, and which avenues are more useful for small to medium size businesses or bigger corporations. Overall, event was a success, every EFactor member got a chance to get up close and personal to ask questions to panelists.
