Almost eight in ten Australians (79%) are now on social media, and more than half (56%) access social platforms more than five times per day (Sensis, 2018).
The prevalence, penetration and frequency of social media use makes these social platforms the biggest marketplace in the world, some 3 billion people worldwide. To be successful, it is now almost mandatory for a business to not just participate in social media, but to have a sophisticated and strategic approach. Social media marketing allows businesses to increase awareness, drive sales leads, retain customers and nurture a loyalty consumer base, and communicate directly with customers. This month we bring together an Influencer, an online editor, and a digital marketing lecturer to help us harness the power of social media for our businesses. Meet our panelists:
- Sammy Preston: Newly-minted editor of The Urban List, previously Foxtel Lifestyle Channel online editor;
- Tom Willis: Chief Marketing Officer at LawPath, and Head Lecturer in Digital Marketing at General Assembly;
- Louise Edmonds: Fashion Writer (SMH), Founder of MenStylePower, and TV Producer for Hillsong Channel.
When: Tuesday 28th August, from 5:30pm for drinks, ahead of the 6-7pm panel interview
Where: Golden Age Bar and Cinema, 80 Commonwealth Street, Surry Hills
