fire-hose of information on vital topics.
Boston, MA (Vocus) October 11, 2009
On Friday, October 23, at the Microsoft Seminar Facility, in Waltham, Mass., Harry Gold, CEO, Overdrive Interactive, will join a group of online marketing luminaries and experts at the NEDMA Technology Day to discuss the impact of social media marketing on businesses and how to best leverage online resources to drive ROI.
During the three-hour seminar (1:00pm-4:00pm), Gold will use real social media marketing case studies to show how companies that weave content and messages into social media outlets such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube can make lasting connections with consumers. The presentation will also frame social media marketing within the following areas: blog outreach and monitoring; social network profile creation; application development; content channel creation; friends and fan outreach; content stream creation; hyper-targeted social media buying; social media measurement and ROI tracking.
A frequent speaker at NEDMA events, Gold’s seminars have been described as offering “vital information on interconnecting” and a “fire-hose of information on vital topics.” His knowledge of how to capture not just an audience, but the right audience, has made him a leader in the industry, and his no-nonsense approach has made even the most conservative companies reevaluate their place in the social media landscape. With concrete content and easy to follow examples, Gold has become a popular participant in international media and marketing conferences.
“Harry Gold is a well-known in the world of social media marketing,” said NEDMA Managing Director Beth Drysdale. “His company’s work in online marketing is representative of a new generation of marketing that is shaping the way businesses work today. We’re honored to have him as one of our industry experts.”
A leader in social media marketing, Gold’s mission is to create innovative online marketing programs based on real-world success. His company, Overdrive Interactive, is at the forefront of this movement helping companies such as Harley-Davidson, Vista Print, Boston.com, EMC, Progress Software and Zipcar enter the world of social media with the strategies, tactics and tools necessary to create a tangible impact.
