Engagement is a critical measure of your social media strategy. But how do you track it? This powerful webinar will cover hot topics, today’s trends, empowering staff, measuring social media impact, and different facets of engagement. Too timely and trendy to miss, this is a must-attend program for a wide variety of staff and leadership!

AFTER THIS WEBINAR YOU’LL BE ABLE TO:

  • Recognize the continued popularity of ephemeral (disappearing) content, live video, the growing power of communities, and several other trends

WEBINAR DETAILS

With over 200 million Americans using social media in 2021, the number of people spending time on platforms like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, and others continues to grow. Ensuring that your financial institution is keeping up with these online consumer trends is an important element of an effective communication and marketing strategy. But when paying attention to top trends and hot topics to ensure your relevance, keeping up can certainly be a challenge.

This webinar will address not only the “hot topics” in social media that should be on your radar, but more importantly, how they potentially impact your institution’s success online. It will explore growing trends around the use of live and recorded video, the new audio-only trends being adopted by practically every platform, use of imagery, the power of storytelling, networking strategies, personal brand-building, and much more!

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This informative session will focus on the marketing and retail areas. However, business development personnel (i.e., lenders and relationship managers) and senior executive leaders who are responsible for the strategic direction of the institution will also benefit from insights shared in this session.
