Brand Advocates are your most passionate, loyal, and engaged customers, and your best marketers. They don’t just buy your products – they sell your products for you. Brand Advocates tweet, blog, and Yelp about you. They praise you with 5-star reviews on Amazon and Trip Advisor; they talk you up in social networks, online communities and over coffee; and they defend you from detractors. Do you know who your Brand Advocates are? Are you systematically engaging and mobilizing your Advocates to drive recommendations and sales? Join us for our Brand Advocates session and you’ll learn:

  • 3 Ways to engage Advocates

  • 5 Ways to mobilize Advocates to spread positive Word of Mouth and increase sales

  • How to measure ROI from Advocate marketing programs

A custom “brand advocates workshop” will follow the presentation for anyone who wants to stay and engage in an interactive, fast and fun session to see first-hand how it’s done. Light appetizers, wine and soft drinks

WHERE: Hult International Business School, 1355 Sansome Street, San Francisco
