Ready for amazing word of mouth? We’re bringing together a group of brilliant word of mouth marketers for Word of Mouth Supergenius: The “How to Be Great at Word of Mouth Marketing” Conference on December 16 in Chicago. We’ll feature 12 how-to classes, 12 real-world case studies, and 6 brilliant authors. You’re going to learn practical, hands-on techniques to get people talking about you the next day.
Our amazing lineup of speakers includes word of mouth supergenius Rod Brooks, PEMCO’s VP and CMO. He’ll be presenting a case study on how PEMCO tuned in to their customers’ wants and needs to build relationships and offered up these great tips as a preview:
- WOM can work for anyone. Even in the most mundane, uninteresting, non-sexy, highly-regulated, commodity-like product categories, products and services can be differentiated and stimulated by consumer buzz.
- Focus on what makes you different. Identify it, clarify it, embed it, share it, and encourage others to talk about it.
- Always think about how to measure it. Whether your budget is huge or you’re working on a shoestring, always plan for a way to measure how your fans are responding. There are lots of tools to help with this, many of them free.
