This event is over.

The ANA Digital & Social Media Conference presented by Meredith is a must-attend event for anyone who is trying to navigate their brands through this hyper-fragmented and complicated media landscape.   Consumers have become accustomed to viewing content and connecting with people wherever and whenever they want. Social media, e-commerce, wearable technology, and native advertising have especially exploded in the last few years. Despite this rapid growth, clients have many challenges which include measurement, agency management, internal org structure, and relinquishing control to the consumer while trying to influence the dialogue.  This event, which has sold out three of the past four years, brings together top digital marketing professionals from the client side with key industry experts.

Case Study: How Whirlpool Taps into People-Powered Marketing

How does a 100-year-old brand humanize itself in the eyes of a new generation of consumers? For it's largest advertising effort to date, Whirlpool Corporation shifted away from traditional product-based messaging toward an new approach that elevated the ways in which real people experience Whirlpool in their everyday lives. The brand used Crowdtap's member network and technology platform to surface user-generated content in social media and then amplified those stories across earned, owned and paid channels. In this session, you'll learn why Whirlpool made the move to put real people at the heart of the campaign, how the effort was executed across digital and traditional channels, and how Crowdtap's People-Powered Marketing Platform served as the engine for inspiring compelling consumer stories. Attendees will leave the session with actionable best practices for consumer-centric marketing programs that help brands transform their messaging from functional to emotional.
