Feeding The Content Calendar Monster: More Content Ideas, Less Stress
Did you know there’s a National Stapler Appreciation Day? Unless you’re an office supply company, you probably should not know this. And it should never touch your content calendar. But you do need ideas that are relevant to your audience, and as a social media pro, you need a ton of these ideas. In this session, Jason will walk you through his creative process for keeping the content calendar monster fed and happy, giving you more content ideas and a more repeatable process.

For The Culture: How Your Voice Powers Successful Social Media
Culture is amorphous. When we talk about evoking culture through content, we’re talking about clarity. Clarity of how your company values translate to the people you want to connect with. In this session you’ll learn what tactics can best help you define the culture you represent to your audience. This includes a focus on values, copywriting, alignment with trends, and defining where you stand on important issues.

In this session, you’ll learn how to use data to cut unnecessary work challenges or chaos, empower you to create better boundaries, make more time to be creative, and remove internal roadblocks that impact external success.

Audience First = Audience Growth: How Shopify Reset Their Social Strategy
Shopify made a major shift in how we thought about social media two years ago. We redefined our audience as a community, not just a following. In this session, you’ll learn how to think about social media strategy from an audience-first approach rather than a message-first. When you treat social as an ecosystem of its own with a social-specific tone and voice catered for individual channels and audiences — you scale your ability to reach and engage new audiences.

How To Get More Out Of Your User-Generated Content
In this session we’ll talk about driving different forms of UGC (photos, reviews, videos, guest blogs) by building relationships, using engagement, and asking the questions that push users to participate. In the COVID-19 year, UGC provided unique pictures and often a vital source of images when photoshoots were not safe. But, quality content informed by your audience and stakeholders is a long term opportunity for social proof, making your brand more relatable, and facilitating inclusive storytelling.
