Lessons from SXSW: Advocacy Trumps Influencer

 
sxsw 2013 1


It's been a few weeks since the conclusion of this year's South by South West (SXSW) festival in Houston, Texas, and even though Justin Timberlake may have stolen the final thunder, there are still many things we can take away from it as marketers. 

One of the most compelling ideas that came out of SXSW 2013 was the focus towards identifying your brand's advocates instead of the growing number of followers. What does this mean though? Think of it this way:Would you rather have many friends that are acquaintances or have fewer friends with strong relationships? Trevor Jonas, VP of Digital at Access Communications, summed up the situation perfectly by saying that, "having fifteen or twenty million fans on a social network is dramatically less than," the response you get, "from interacting and building relationships with a thousand or even a hundred true advocates." The massive number of followers may be impressive, but the true testament in brand loyalty comes from the endorsement and support of those die-hard enthusiasts, otherwise known as the brand advocates. It's important to nurture strong relationships with brand advocates.

Korean Pop (K-Pop) music has been gaining a lot of international recognition within the last two years.

Video Marketing During the Holiday Shopping Season

 

With the holidays in full swing, marketers are monitoring new ways to reach shoppers during a season marked by an ever evolving media landscape. It almost goes without saying that, particularly in recent years, retailers have had to adjust their holiday marketing plans to consumer media habits in order to keep those discounts and deals in front of shoppers. This year is no different, but perhaps unique in the sense that, to paraphrase AllThingsD’s Kara Swisher, shoppers are "shopping online for iPads with their iPads."
