In this interactive presentation, BuzzFeed social experts Rachel Christensen and Summer Anne Burton will discuss how they helped successfully build the largest social networks in media—by rethinking the way the industry sees social media editors, content, and distribution.
They’ll cover how BuzzFeed stuck to scrappy and unconventional ways of thinking about and creating content for social platforms, and how they used data to inform their strategies. There will also be examples of BuzzFeed’s biggest wins and fails (in the form of a quiz!), with insight to how, why, and where BuzzFeed experiments.
This event is targeted both at social media editors and their employers, and will include a short presentation via PowerPoint, along with a Q&A. Some of the biggest mistakes we see in media are caused by an outdated way that brands and publishers look at their social talent.
Participants will leave with a new way at looking to hire social candidates, the best ways to manage a social editor’s workflow, and how to create sharable content without a sizable budget.
Rachel Christensen, Managing Social Media Editor at BuzzFeed, will lead a session at SMW New York with Summer Anne Burton to discuss how they went outside of the box to rethink how successfully create large networks on social media platforms.
Rachel’s session “Building A Great Social Presence The Resourceful Way, Presented By BuzzFeed” will take place on Wednesday, February 24th at 11:00am at the SVA (EDU Stage).
