New York, NY (PRWEB) November 17, 2010
Samantha Skey, Chief Revenue Officer at RecycleBank®, the premier green rewards program that motivates people to take environmental actions, will participate on the “Art of Cause-Related Marketing” panel at this year’s WOMMA Summit (http://womma.org/summit/). The annual event hosted by the Word of Mouth Marketing Association (WOMMA) brings together leading industry professionals to discuss emerging and innovative best practices in word of mouth and social media marketing. Skey and RecycleBank partner Nature Made will join American Express and TOMS Shoes to discuss the process, potential pitfalls and benefits involved with creating an authentic cause marketing campaign.
Skey works with RecycleBank’s brand partners such as eBay, Kashi, MillerCoors and Naked Juice to create social marketing campaigns that foster brand loyalty, increase sales, and promote sustainable consumption by engaging and mobilizing eco-conscious consumers. RecycleBank and Nature Made successfully teamed up this year on a word-of-mouth program to educate consumers on the recyclability of vitamin bottles, and reward them for doing so. Using Nature Made and other examples from RecycleBank’s partner program, Skey will address the company’s recipe for success: motivating consumers with incentives tied to positive, measurable environmental actions.
