How NOT to implement employee advocacy http://www.unmarketing.com/2014/11/24/for-whom-the-bell-mobility-tolls-employee-5-star-app-reviews/ So much is wrong with this! Unethical, transparently stupid and a perfect recipe for creating distrust for the brand
I remember the day I gave an eBay seller a 1 star review. It was a lifetime ago, and I had bought a baseball card and it never arrived. I left a review reflecting my thoughts on it. The seller freaked out on me, saying I could ruin his business since it wasn’t a five-star […]

I'm thrilled to be joined by IBM thought leaders +Amber Armstrong and +Colleen Burns on November 20 to discuss how @IBM drives ROI w/ Employee Advocacy programs. We welcome all to join the free webinar http://bit.ly/1sa5m6k
Companies with engaged employees outperform those without by up to 202% (source: Gallup). It’s understood that employee advocacy can be an amplification tool for many departments including marketing, recruiting, sales, and branding. What’s even more compelling is the cost savings and conversion ROI that can result from a successful program. Susan Emerick, CEO of Brands Rising and co-author of “The Most Powerful Brand on Earth”, will be joined by ...

Introduction

Speaker, Adjunct Professor and Veteran Marketer passionate about applying social analytics to marketing strategy & building a social workforce.

Author:  The Most Powerful Brand On Earth: How to Transform Teams, Empower Employees, Integrate Partners and Mobilize Customers to Beat the Competition in Digital and Social Media

  • Brands that thrive and profit from employee and customer empowerment generate significantly greater awareness and revenues, while also decreasing costs of marketing, selling and customer service. However, employees must engage in public, real-time conversations. And most people are not professional communicators.
  • Enabling employees and partners in modern business requires new skills, business processes, governance, measurement, and infrastructure. In addition, leaders must learn new ways of managing risk, while helping employees build and manage external relationships in real-time. Nearly every industry is affected, and this book provides frameworks, guidelines and case studies for people to navigate the change for their organization.

Manager of Enterprise Social Strategy & Programs at IBM where I specialize in Digital & Social Influence Marketing Strategy. I’m dedicated to evolving marketing as a practice, articulating the benefits of integrating social influence programs to foster long-term, high value relationships with clients, prospects, partners, colleagues, and communities.

I have established the C.O.R.E. (Cross functional, On-going Research & Engagement) Social Marketing practice in partnership with the IBM Market Insights team. I’m currently working to roll out this social marketing methodology based on social “listening” research, strategic engagement roadmap and social intelligence platform to accelerate execution effectiveness. I have developed informed engagement and workforce enablement programs to ensure teams of marketing and technology professionals are aligned to share their subject matter expertise, effectively engage and build influence in on-line communities to drive business outcomes. I work with many IBM Teams and External Agencies.

Prior to joining IBM, I led the development of global marketing programs for both B2B & Consumer brands across various industries including Financial Services, Media & Entertainment and Retail Distribution.

I share my views about B2B Social Media Marketing Strategy and what it takes to Build a Social Brand on my blog at www.susanemerick.com


I use social technologies to collaborate with colleagues and partners across the globe.
