You (brands) need to move from the aspect of looking to do brand self-promotion, the couponing and gaming, and get more into ‘what is the conversation I am looking to have.’ It is word-of-mouth media and advertising.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 10, 2012
Wes Crnkovich, Director of Strategic Planning for the Chicago-based full-service advertising agency Plan B [the agency alternative], was featured on a recent episode of Food News Today where he shared insights on how social media can and should be a part of food marketing.
During the interview, Crnkovich discusses social media’s role in the food industry, noting that many companies are treating social media marketing with an outdated perspective. He emphasizes that social media marketing is about generating conversations, not just promotions, adding that brands should set measurable and appropriate goals before beginning a social media campaign.
Crnkovich explains, “You (brands) need to move from the aspect of looking to do brand self-promotion, the couponing and gaming, and get more into ‘what is the conversation I am looking to have.’ It is word-of-mouth media and advertising.”
Crnkovich holds more than two decades of brand management experience at international packaged goods firms including Unilever and ConAgra Foods.
