The Four Keys to Understanding Social Media Strategy
Mark Says about his Oiconf workshop:
Trying to absorb the complex and rapidly-changing world of social media can feel like trying to take a drink from a fire hose!
But in this fast-paced and entertaining session, renowned marketing authority, educator, and author Mark W. Schaefer will put it all in perspective.
Schaefer will cut through the hype and explain the four foundational elements of social media that every business professional must understand to be effective in an always-on digital world.
Mari and Mark are joined on the Oiconf roster by our two very special guests.
Tom Webster is a 20-year veteran of opinion, media and marketing research, and the principal author of Twitter Users In America, The Social Habit, The Podcast Consumer Revealed and other widely-cited studies of consumer technology usage. He is currently Vice President, Strategy, for Edison Research, most widely-known as the sole providers of U.S. Election exit polling data to all major media outlets. For more about Tom, click here.
Tom’s talk is called “Making Big Data Small”
‘Big Data’ is one of the top buzzwords of 2013, but what does it really mean, and how can you profit from it? Join Tom as he walks attendees through the jungle of Big Data and how to tame it to a manageable size. Tom’s company is the sole provider of exit polling data to global news networks for the U.S. Elections and primaries, and recently worked on the exit polls for the 2012 National Elections—one of the biggest “big data” projects in the world.
For a researcher, there is no such thing as ‘big data’–only data that has yet to be characterized and applied. This will not be a technical talk on statistical analysis; rather, it will teach attendees a framework—a way of thinking about data—that can be immediately applied to any data about your business.
Learning how to clearly understand your company’s data is the first, and easiest step towards optimizing your business, and after Tom’s talk you’ll never look at your pile of numbers the same way again.
Tamsen Webster specializes in how to tell the right story to the right people at the right time to drive business results. As the SVP of Content Activation and Digital Strategy for independent Boston advertising agency Allen & Gerritsen, she creates brand, content, digital, social, integrated media, community building, and audience engagement strategies for startups, retail, restaurant, CPG, and B2B brands. She holds bachelor’s degrees in American Studies and Marketing, an MA in Arts Administration, and an MBA in Organizational Behavior. She’s relentlessly pattern-driven, believes in the rationally irrational, and loves great brand stories, well told.
