Why Do I Need an Employee Advocacy Program?
Let’s back up. Not yet sure why employee advocacy even matters? Employee advocacy today goes beyond the old fashioned “employee barbecue”, and it goes beyond simply having employee social media policies in place. Today, it’s a huge help to have a solid strategy in place in order to ensure your employees are not only engaged and excited about being brand ambassadors for your company, but that they feel comfortable about it. Not only can employee advocacy programs help promote the brand and the culture you’ve created within your organization, they can help your recruiting efforts, for both active and passive job candidates. Employee advocates can also have a big impact on new business development and revenue growth, and the profitability of the company in general. In short, your employees are likely your secret weapon, if only you know how to trust and empower them. Want to know more? Register now and make plans to join us on July 9th.
Here’s a taste of what you’ll discover: There are a number of trends right now driving the evolution of business, including the rapid pace of digital transformation, the rise in social business, and the aforementioned employee advocacy. In this webinar, Charlene is going to illustrate how these three topics are inextricably linked.
The latest Altimeter research bears this out in spades. Not surprisingly for those of us already immersed in digital (and who understand its benefits), a whopping 88 percent of companies say they are going through digital marketing transformations, and trying to adapt to the digital customer mindset, which can be a long and complex process.
Here’s where a finely tuned employee advocacy program can make an impact.
The Benefits of Employee Advocacy
Strategically developed employee advocacy programs ensure that you can train and empower empoyees to receive and post company-approved content to their social networks. Why does this matter? Statistics show that when you actively include employees in your social media strategy, you can expand your network leads by 10 times the average.
And, since people listen more to their social peer-to-peer connections (people they trust) than to advertising campaigns, content engagement and brand awareness dramatically increases (I won’t share those numbers with you – you’ll have to tune in on July 9th to find out just how dramatic these increases really are!).
What you will learn at this webinar:
- What are the challenges most companies face with digital business transformation?
- What is the rate of adoption for employee advocacy?
- What are the drivers for employee advocacy and the maturity model?
- What are the best practices to launch and scale an employee advocacy program?
