Bringing SEXY Back to Offline Word of Mouth Marketing

All sales do not happen online and not all word of mouth happens online. Yet, marketers today seem to be only gung-ho about ways to connect with customers through online social media. It’s time to bring SEXY back to offline word of mouth. It’s time to rekindle a marketer’s passion for giving customers real reasons to tell their friends about brands they enjoy doing business with.

In this webinar, you’ll learn how retailers, restaurants, consumer packaged goods, and technology brands are using seemingly mundane customer touchpoints in the physical world as powerful word of mouth talking points.
