Facebook Marketing Conference 2012 - Check Out The Highlights

fbmk12

Last Wednesday Chinwag and Our Social Times held the long awaited Facebook Marketing Conference. The day was packed full with speakers, case studies, stats and quotes, our favourite still being from Tom from We Are Social, asking "are you a dipper or a smotherer" (in reference to Heinz ketchup that is).

The day was a huge success with over 120 people through the door, 22 speakers and a twitter hashtag that not only trended during the day but reached over 76,818 people (baring in mind we ended up with two hashtags being used #fbmk12 and #fbkm12)!

For those of you that could not attend the conference, we've done a recap of the event highlights with links to some of the presentations. It'll almost be as if you were there... just without the free chocolate (thanks again Cadburys Dairy Milk).

Chinwag Insight: Psychology of Online Influence Presentation Slides Are Now Live #ChinwagPsych

Psychology of Online Influence Brochure
Thank you to all that attended the long awaited Chinwag Insight: Psychology of Online Influence conference yesterday.

The afternoon was jam-packed with brain-busting insight from some of the leading experts from both academic and marketing worlds, bringing together theory and practice to build on the debate from the first event that took place during Social Media Week London in February.

Amongst the sea of information, here's a few of our favourite pointers on tackling online influence:

  • 1. Know your target, 2. Communicate persuasively, 3. Sell with integrity.
  • Relate to what bonds people and drives them to share: shared history, attitudes, society and culture.
  • Identify the 5 types of influencers: idea starters, amplifiers, curators, commentators and viewers
  • Provide 'social validation': ratings, reviews and pictures bump up effectiveness by 20%
