  • Just a few of the nice things people have to say about working with Brief… thanks Michael and Mike!
  • Let’s take a tour of Social Marketing, show you how it can help your brand, and then walk you through what Brief Attention Span can do for you…
  • Are you “doing” Social Media? How is your Social Media marketing presence? Are you effectively reaching and connecting to millions of potential customers? Every brand should have a strategy for reaching and interacting with the millions of the people in Social Media – especially to the target customers that you SHOULD be connected to. 
  • If Display drives awareness, and Search Optimization zeros in active seekers, Social Marketing provides the means to reach out and actively engage and interact with a desired audience.  In conjunction with traditional online media buys and search optimization, Social Marketing reaches people where they work and play on the web with an engaging proposition , an "aha, these people UNDERSTAND me" outreach - a means to generate conversations and meaningful social interaction between a brand and a target consumer.
  • The Social Media Web is a rapidly evolving extension of the World Wide Web in which people interact, share, and create virtual friendships, connections and interactions.
  • The Social Media web is exploding, spreading like wildfire with new sites, tools, and communities created every day. Facebook alone has grown to over 210 million people worldwide, and added significantly older demographics. It is an ideal place to meet and engage in a soft-site, 2-way interaction with your customers. And, because of the nature of the information that people post on their profiles, the Social Media web is a marketers dream for targeting and creating meaningful interactions with potential new fans of your brand.
  • Active participants in the Social Web are sharing more content and more varied types of content than ever before. Active Sharing is your opportunity to “join the conversation” and create viral sharing – by leveraging your fans to share your content and offers with their friends.
  • The lesson here is to make sure you get it right before you jump in...
  • To maximize the potential of social marketing, you need to measure and develop a strategy that meets your objectives before you jump in
  • More to come from the Facebook Era, Twitter Power & Facebook Marketing books
  • Here are a few examples of some our favorite Brief Social Marketing campaigns.
  • Right now, you have a weekly chance to win an Acer Netbook laptop when you create a free email address at We’re conducting this ongoing weekly sweepstakes for AT&T. They want to have a promotional presence constantly throughout the year, so when this weekly sweepstakes ends, another one follows it seamlessly.
  • In closing, we want to stress that we’re all about partnership. We see ourselves as an extension of your team. We’ll puzzle-piece ourselves in with you however it works best for your clients. In essence, we’d like you to think of us as Westwood One’s “go to” promotional resource. We’re really excited to be working with all of you & look forward to the next steps on your clients‘ upcoming media campaigns.

    • 25. Monetizing Social Marketing
      Brief Attention Span Communications is dedicated to shortening the sales cycle, and we believe that social marketing provides an amazing platform to do just that.
      You monetize social marketing by driving sales. You drive sales by effectively converting leads. And you generate leads by understanding and motivating consumer behavior. This is what it truly means to monetize social marketing – byunderstanding and motivating consumer behavior where your customers work and play online.
      The most effective way to do this is by adapting “tried and true” sales promotion methodologies to the social networking space. Leverage the social media platforms to generate awareness, deliver compelling, viral content to build up buzz and interest, and then convert leads to sales and “brand fans” through offers and incentives.
      While each individual business has its own marketing objectives, brand attributes and messaging platform, the overall approach to generating leads, nurturing opportunities and closing sales is a time-tested approach that continues to be effective even as the mediums continue to change and evolve.
