How to successfully sell a unified social media strategy to decision-makers

As a social champion, you already know that gaining executive buy-in is a crucial step in scaling social across your organization. But is this something the decisions-makers in your organization also know?

The reality is that only 52% of companies report that their executives are informed, engaged and aligned with their company’s social strategy—and this limits or cripples social growth.

Watch the on-demand webinar, Scaling Social: Unifying Social Strategy & Gaining Executive Buy-In, to access the tools and tactics you can use to gain executive buy-in, plus find out the answers to social media’s biggest question: How do I measure my ROI?

Our panel of experts discuss common challenges of scaling social media across the organization, and share valuable insight on the following aspects of a unified social media strategy—and much more—in the webinar:

  • How to align department goals with organizational goals, and focus on impact goals (more revenue), not activity goals (more likes)
  • Why clear leadership and established processes are essential for social workflow
  • The business benefits of unifying your social strategy across Marketing, Sales, Customer Service, HR & IT— and how to do it
