The Art of Marketing 2012 brings together speakers, panels, and hands-on training intensives designed to illuminate, educate, and paint the varied yet blended picture we call marketing. Answering the call for relevant, timely insights and actionable takeaways in a one-day, fun, intensive learning environment, the Art of Marketing Fall 2012 promises to deliver real-world solutions in a lively forum.
Presented by the San Diego Chapter of The American Marketing Association (AMA) and powered by UC San Diego Extension, Art of Marketing 2012 will host 100 attendees and speakers from big brands, small and medium-sized business and local universities.
Rob Fuggetta will be leading a discussion on “Energizing Brand Advocates.” Drawing on dozens of real-world case studies from leading B2C and B2B companies, Fuggetta’s discussion will cover how to:
· Identify Brand Advocates from among Facebook fans, Twitter followers, and other engaged customers
· Energize Advocates, generating thousands of positive recommendations on Amazon.com, TripAdvisor, Yelp, and elsewhere without paying for or providing incentives to Advocates
· Track and measure results from customer advocacy programs
