1:00 PM - 4:30 PM
In the age of rapid innovation, overcrowded platforms, and constantly shifting interests, marketers struggle to sell more than ever before. Many marketers are able to get their products in front of customers, but their target market simply does not buy. Why? Two reasons: generations have changing interests and templated marketing messages lack an authentic human touch. Jeff Butler, the author of The Authentic Workplace, capitalizes on how authenticity is becoming the new unique selling proposition. In this program, he shares compelling case studies and tangible examples. Authenticity is being used by cutting edge brands to move customers from a ‘maybe’ to a ‘yes’ through more personal videos, marketing copy, and unique forms of rapport building in direct sales.
