Using Social Media to Redefine the Customer Value Proposition
A half-day conference, webinar & networking breakfast

Friday, April 27, 2012
7:45 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

The past decade has brought about amazing changes in how customers and marketers communicate and receive information, how they search for information, and how they purchase goods and services. The changes and advances in social, mobile, and online technologies have created a perfect storm, forcing firms to change their tack and refine their customer value propositions. Leading firms are embracing these opportunities and working with their social media partner firms to actively excite customers with interesting offers and offerings, educate their customers, allow them to experience their goods and services and actively engage in a dialogue with them and their social network.
