(PRWEB) October 09, 2013
Procter & Gamble’s Olay beauty brand and Iron Tribe Fitness will headline two new featured sessions focusing on customer engagement and loyalty at the 3rd Annual Engagement & Experience Expo, presented by Loyalty 360 – The Loyalty Marketer’s Association. The event will be held Nov. 5-7, 2013, at The Westin Galleria in Dallas, Texas. The Engagement & Experience Expo is a golden opportunity for marketers to hear about the latest best practices and emerging trends in customer experience from their peers.
The first session is titled, “Olay ‘Eye & Lash Duo’ Wows Times Square.” Procter & Gamble’s Olay brand, its premier beauty brand, was looking to launch a new product – Regenerist Eye & Lash Duo – and wanted to drive brand engagement through social and mobile channels. As a result, it turned its customers into advocates and created instant brand loyalty by making them famous for a day.
For several weeks, fans of Olay in New York City received beauty makeovers in Times Square and then saw their faces up in lights on a giant digital billboard in the most trafficked intersection in the world – Times Square. Other fans not in the city could snap their pictures through the Wow Eyes digital experience on Facebook – a social and mobile extension of the live event – and they too would be made famous in Times Square.
Elizabeth Joyce, Assistant Brand Manager, Procter & Gamble; and Jed Singer, Director of Client Engagement, Stuzo, will be the featured session speakers. Among the topics included in the session are: the background of Procter & Gamble/Olay brand; the Rise of Facebook for brand marketers; Olay Loyal Consumers and Eye & Lash Duo product launch; Integration of social and mobile layer to activate loyal fan base; and Results and business impact for Olay and Procter & Gamble.
Iron Tribe Fitness Chief Marketing Officer Jamie Warren will present the Iron Tribe Fitness session titled, “Loyalty as a Side Effect: Impacting Your Customers’ Lives First.”
Iron Tribe’s mission is to serve its customers on both a physical and spiritual basis.
What began with a group of 12 friends in a small garage has rocketed into a vibrant national fitness entity. Iron Tribe Fitness operates six corporately-owned gyms and has sold 57 franchise locations since 2012.
Warren will discuss how Iron Tribe leveraged a culture of accountability and innovation inside the gym to go from a hobby to the fastest growing group-oriented fitness franchise in the country. Fueling the rapid growth has been the hundreds of passionate clients who refer their friends and family to the Tribe. Over 75% of new clients result from the enthusiastic referrals of existing clients.
Attendees will explore the following in this energetic session:
Developing a model where clients feel brand ownership and become “raving fans”
Innovate by combining automation and engagement technologies with time-tested marketing techniques
Learn Iron Tribe’s secrets to strong emotional connection with clients
Living out the core values of your brand before striving to create customer loyalty
Creating superior experiences and innovating faster than your competition
“We’re very excited about these two phenomenal sessions,” shared Loyalty 360 President Erin Raese. “The Olay story shines a bright light on customer engagement and the use of social media in the biggest and most exciting way. The Iron Tribe brand exudes passion and attendees will see this very clearly because this company cares deeply about it customers in both a physical and emotional way.”
