BMA Dinner: Breaking Boundaries and Succeeding in a Social World

Innovative approaches and transparent communication don’t usually conjure up images of the military. But for the past decade, the U.S. Air Force has been breaking the rules by investing heavily in marketing and communication, particularly new media, to interact with other agencies and the public.

While organizations of all sizes struggle to understand new media, the Air Force Public Affairs team leads the way in developing strategies that include Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, podcasts/vodcasts and blogging. Consistently touted by David Meerman Scott as a group who gets it “right,” the Air Force has also developed a Social Media Guide that’s required reading in several universities and a “handbook” for many marketers. Register today to learn:

  • Why social media should be a crucial part of the marketing mix and how to use it to achieve your overall goals
  • How to use resources you already have to connect with your customers in a changing communications environment
  • How to measure and evaluate campaigns to communicate the bottom-line impact to executives
