Workshop: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of Social Media

For some, social media may feel like the “bright, shiny object,” something that captures our attention before we move on to the next new thing. But for organizations using it right, such as the U.S. Air Force, social media is here to stay. However, it requires a well thought out strategy before every blog, Twitter or Facebook posting to ensure it helps achieve key marketing objectives. Register today and hear Paul Bove, from the U.S. Air Force Web Development and Digital Media Strategy, Emerging Technology Division of the Air Force Public Affairs Agency of the Pentagon talk about:

  • The success—and failures—the Air Force experienced while implementing its social media program
  • How to educate executives—including the CEO, CFO and legal--about the importance of integrating social media into the marketing mix
  • Why the same thought process you use for traditional marketing still applies to new media
