Marketing Peer Group Virtual Meeting 

Leveraging Employee Ambassadors on Social Media 
July 12, 2022 09:00 AM - 12:00 PM 
Maximize your brand voice with authenticity and authority 

*** This meeting will be virtual-only without an in-person meeting option ***

Employee advocacy is one of the most effective ways to boost your public image and employee engagement.

Why? Because your employees are already posting about you. Half of all employees share content from or about their employer on social media, and 33% of all employees do so without any prompting.

There is a particular group of employee influencers that are in a unique position to advocate for your brand: subject matter experts. Your organization’s subject matter experts, or SMEs, are key to promoting and strengthening not only the company brand, but also its employer brand.

Increased brand authority and reach --When your employees have thousands of social media followers eager to read their thoughts, or when your people speak at conferences or appear on industry podcasts, the company benefits as well. This expands brand reach and grows brand authority, which makes sense since your company employs the very people who are authorities in their respective fields.

Improved employer brand and better recruitment --Today your employer brand, or your company’s reputation, is crucial for success. When potential employees see that your company invests in its employees, elevates them as thought leaders, and allows them to build their personal brands, they’ll be more likely to apply for a position at your organization in the hopes of becoming your next subject matter expert.

In what is sure to be referred to as "The Lollapalooza" of employee ambassador programs, we will hear from the amazing Sarah Goodall, founder of Tribal Impact, and Ashley Zeckman, Vice President of Strategy & Customer Success.
