Social Media Panelists

Speaker Spotlight: Toby Guillette at the AMA Art of Marketing

By | Earned Media | No Comments

As we mentioned earlier this week in our ‘In Case You Missed It’ blog post, Geary LSF’s Sr. Social Media Strategist, Toby Guillette, was asked to be a speaker at the fourth annual American Marketing Association ‘Art of Marketing’ conference in San Diego.

Despite what you may think by looking at the photo above, this was not a panel about personal grooming and the art of exquisite facial hair (although these three gents indeed seem to be experts in that field as well).

Rather, the panel was a smorgasbord of social media strategy and client case studies for success. Toby, along with co-panelist Brian from Copper Blue Creative and moderator Frank from Elevator, enlightened the audience on the ever-changing social landscape and how they, as experts, stay ahead-of-the-curve.

The 3 key takeaways from the panel were:

  • Potential of Brand Advocates – How a brand or company can engage with brand fans and tap into their enthusiasm and willingness to advocate for the brand through social media contests and influencer outreach
  • Changing Social Landscape – Like it or not, we’re in an industry that moves quickly and without warning. Within just the past few years, social has become a game-changing channel for advertising and community engagement. When you ask the pros what’s next, the consensus seems to be around video so keep an eye out.
  • Brand Consistency is Key – As the consumer path to purchase shifts and people have access to your brand across more channels and platforms than ever, it’s imperative that the brand experience, including voice & message, are consistent. The quickest way to lose a customer is by sending mixed messages.

With it being a new year, now is the perfect time to take a look at your social media efforts and evaluate where you excel and where there is room for improvement.

Are You Writing Content “Just for SEO”?

By | Blog, Earned Media | No Comments

“Yeah, those keywords have a lot of search volume, but we don’t want to write content just for SEO.” This is a common apprehension from some clients these days, now that the more literal interpretations of “content is king” are dying off and it’s really starting to sink in that the content on your website actually has to be meaningful beyond a robot recognizing keyword density in a slapdash pile of 300 – 500 words.

That said, some people have become over-cautious – paranoid even – about writing any content that serves a motive to rank in search results.
