Are you struggling with the ever-increasing volume of content needed to "feed the beast" of social media algorithms?

Do you wish you had more credible and trustworthy ambassadors to tell your brand story for you?

Has your B2C or B2B brand hit a plateau with reach and audience-building?

It's time to recruit your "Content Army!"

Nowadays, it's not enough to tell a compelling brand story and deliver a fantastic user experience and product. Today's consumers want to hear about your brand from REAL people. Peers, friends, community figures, and yes, even their favorite personas on Instagram, TikTok, and the blog scene.

In fact, Edelman found that "63% of consumers trust what influencers say about brands more than they trust the brand's advertisements."

Brands that are "doing it right" are recruiting their own dream team of creators to deliver a steady stream of ongoing content from diverse and multiple sources.

Are you?

In this session, you'll learn how to approach, assemble and leverage the power of internal spokespersons, external influencers, community ambassadors, and existing superfans for your Brand.

Building, and leaning on, your Content Army will allow you to:

- Increase your diversity of voice
- Earn external credibility from trustworthy influential storytellers
- Lessen the burden on your team to have to create all of your assets
- Extend your reach above and beyond your current audiences
- And keep things fresh without straying from your traditional advertising brand guidelines
