INTRODUCTIONS (9:30 – 9:45AM)
I. HOW CDW'S CUSTOMERS BECAME BRAND ADVOCATES (9:45-10:45AM)
CDW has a loyal and enthusiastic customer base, but CDW wasn't leveraging this group. Who better to tell the CDW story than the customers who could relate their story from a personal perspective? This session will talk about how they built a customer advocacy program, measured engagement and success and tips other B2B marketers can use to leverage their own loyal customers that go beyond ratings and reviews.
Lauren McCadney, Sr. Manager, Social Media, CDW

No Drama" consumer campaign, the B2B ALL DRIVE campaign supported the dealer network and included a sweepstakes, innovative interactive digital application, thought leadership, social media and more. Hear Cars.com share the three pillars they identified to help dealers drive their brand forward, as well as the internal communication strategy developed to rally the entire organization.
