'Community/Brand Building: Assembling Your Special Forces' At The Worldwide Radio Summit 2012
A Must-Attend Social Media Session
March 5, 2012 at 3:53 AM (PT)
Important Question: What do you really know about Social/Digital Media?
It's one thing to build a community, and it's another to tap into the real tastemakers who love your station -- not for giveaways, or other monetary enticements, it's their passion for your brand. Why is community just as critical as content? How do you build on this?
Beyond using FACEBOOK, TWITTER, your station's site and a myriad of other social platforms, what do you really know about building your brand? Do you know how to work and properly communicate with your "Special Forces"? These are the core brand advocates who would do anything for your station, if you would only acknowledge them.
Learn how to build on your brand authority and harness the power of your Special Forces by signing up for the WORLDWIDE RADIO SUMMIT 2012, APRIL 27th-28th at the W HOTEL in HOLLYWOOD, presented by ALL ACCESS and A&R WORLDWIDE to learn how you can learn about "Community/Brand Building: Assembling Your Special Forces."
You'll come away with the knowledge to produce more compelling programming on-air and on-line that will engage your audience and generate better ratings and revenues across the many available platforms.
As part of our pledge to not present "the same old stuff," only THE WORLDWIDE RADIO SUMMIT 2012 gives you the opportunity to meet radio, music and digital/social media execs from around the world to share ideas and collaborate.
