Participation Marketing – Unleashing Employees to Participate and Become Brand Storytellers
Participation Marketing explores the benefits of getting employees to subscribe to a brand’s ethos in order to magnify a brand’s voice. Employee advocacy has always been worth investing in, but the importance of leveraging it has massively increased with the explosion of unique social media connections. Earning the respect and passion of hard-working employees, and encouraging them to share the company’s activity in their personal channels, importantly communicates a transparent and human brand.
This book will help business leaders think strategically about employee advocacy as a new channel to market and will show them how to develop trusted brand messages. Participation in company activity and sharing content not only helps reach wider communities with trusted peer-to-peer endorsements, it also reinforces the credibility of a company as a positive brand experience. Alongside higher employee engagement, retention and productivity, Participation Marketing shows you how to work with the most vital influencers that any organization can have: its employees.
