Clay’s subject matter is diverse. He can really customize a presentation to whatever suits you or your event. But here are a few ideas to get you started.

    Customer engagement is the new marketing. Customer experience is the new brand.
    Marketing is not about crafting a message and trying to blast it to as many ears and eyeballs and possible. It’s about engaging with customers, making human connections and translating it all into bottom-line business results. Clay will cover how the old model has changed and teach you how you can take advantage of the new model to achieve your business objectives.
    Social ROI
    Despite the naysayers, it is more possible to measure and demonstrate ROI from engagement in the social web than almost any other form of marketing. It’s not about acquiring Twitter followers or Facebook fans, it’s about using real engagement to move the needle on your business objectives. Clay will teach you how to effectively define specific objectives and how to design a social strategy to achieve those objectives. He will show you how to define the right metrics and how to measure them to prove the ROI of your engagement in social communication.

    Below is a presentation Clay designed for the Roger Smith Hotel to illustrate how they book 75-175 rooms per month via social and have increased their food and events business by 32% and 36% respectively.
