The power of brand advocacy increases exponentially when a company leverages their advocates using multiple channels. - R. Beedon,

Amplifinity’s CEO and Co-Founder, Richard Beedon, and Vice President of Sales for ADP's Small Business Services Department, Jim Greene, will be co-presenting at the Word of Mouth Marketing Association’s (WOMMA) upcoming conference, WOMM-U, May 21, 2013, in Chicago. The 2013 conference attracts experts and thought leaders from over 350 of the top companies and brands in the country, including Walgreens, Intel, Discover, Social@Ogilvy, Izea, Weber Shandwick, Nestle, Toyota, Pfizer, and more.
Beedon and Greene’s session will focus on the importance of thinking about Brand Advocacy as more than just a one-time campaign solely developed for a brand’s customers, but as an essential solution that should cross all lines of business, effectively creating new and high-performing sales channels. “We will share some of Amplifinity’s Best Practices at WOMM-U, focusing on the ways in which our clients turn their customers, employees and affiliates into powerful sales and marketing channels as ADP has done with considerable success,” Beedon said. Amplifinity launched its platform at a time when consumers were becoming empowered to spread the word about their experiences with a brand, and beginning to focus less on traditional forms of advertising. Beedon talked about the WOMM-U conference: “WOMMA serves an essential role of bringing together the voices and best practices of those who are getting it right. The power of brand advocacy increases exponentially when a company leverages their advocates using multiple channels.”
The WOMM-U conference will commence at 1pm, May 20th, with a Welcome Address from Jonah Berger, Assistant Professor of Marketing at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, and author of the recent book, Contagious: Why Things Catch On. The conference runs through May 22rd.
Ekaterina Walter, Intel Social Media Strategist and WOMMA BOD member says about the conference: “It’s an amazing environment in which to exchange ideas with your peers, look at compelling case studies and consider research being published. Overall WOMM-U allows participants to take what they’ve learned, and put it to use right away.”
Topics presented at the WOMM-U Conference include:
- Developing a social media strategy to drive online conversations
- Driving engagement through content
- Using data to more effectively target future marketing efforts and better engage customers
- Developing, growing and nurturing thriving brand communities
- Measuring and increasing ROI
