How to Create Brand Buzz Using Social Audience Data and Smart Segmentation


Published on

Getting the attention and then engaging with your target audience is really challenging. Ubiquitous social media, cross-platform media consumption, and declining ad effectiveness make it virtually impossible to cut through the noise and connect – much less actually engage.

That said, there’s still hope and there are tools that can help today’s digital marketers achieve success in this regard.

The key to success is creating quality, “share-worthy” content. But how can brand marketers ensure their content is reaching and impacting their desired audience?

During this session you will learn:
How to embrace your first and third-party audience data and brand personas to know when your content is landing with the right audience(s)
The essential tools, technologies, and data to track the discovery and sharing of content
How to track brand influencers and the people they influence

  • Forrester conducted an independent study of the top enterprise SEO solutions out in the industry and Rio SEO was recognized as the only leader in the space. This is primarily due to our ability to deliver the only complete solution for the SEO lifecycle which includes not just reporting solutions but solutions built around execution and automation of SEO.We were also identified as the leader due to our strategic vision moving forward which begins to look at our space across SEO and Social and how these two are starting to become more and more related to each other. Our recent acquisition of Meteor Solutions, who is leading the social space, is specifically targeted to position us for delivering solutions around not just SEO (or local SEO) but how social and SEO relate.
  • So all of the digital connections, links, and content make it even easier for people to turn to the Web to begin the customer journey at discovery. And what guides the initial discovery process more than anything else is the content that gets surfaced through social and search.
