The Real Science of Social Media: Fear and Experimentation (1:30 PM-2:45PM) 

Sarah A. Parker, Social Media Manager, Union Metrics
Social media marketing is now an established and necessary part of all brand marketing, but fear holds most brands back from making the most of social platforms the way their fans, followers and target audience do. There's a delicate balance brands have to strike in order to reach their audiences without coming across as inauthentic and "trying too hard." The real science of social media is leaving enough room in a brand strategy to experiment with different ways of reaching a target audience that stays true to brand voice and values, backed by measurement with key metrics.
