Rapid Growth Optimisation (RGO) and the role of Social Media
DATE: Friday 30th September 2011
VENUE: No,29, Royal Exchange, Glasgow
PRESENTER: Gordon MacIntyre-Kemp
Marketing has evolved - optimising a company for rapid growth requires an integrated approach to social media, digital and traditional marketing. Over the last two years Gordon MacIntyre-Kemp has worked closely with six companies that have achieved rapid growth (over 30% growth per annum) as a sales, marketing and social media advisor.
He has combined this experience with research into the marketing activities of over 100 UK based rapid growth companies to identify the marketing activities and behaviours that lead to rapid sales and profit growth. The end result of this research will be published in 2012 and this event will be the public presentation of Rapid Growth Optimisation.
Gordon says “Be prepared to change the way you view social media and the role of marketing in your organisation”. “Rapid Growth Optimisation (RGO) is the new science of marketing and social media engagement is the cornerstone of RGO”.
Gordon’s formula for RGO is K.A.S.T. Which stands for Knowledge Leadership Positioning (K), Attraction Marketing (A), Social Media Engagement (S) and Trust Maximisation (T).
In this New Media Breakfast Gordon will cover:
- Six common growth factors
- The optimum point in the buying process for engagement
- The role of Knowledge in modern marketing
- How Attraction has taken over from broadcast marketing
- How Social media and engagement leads to sales conversion
- The key to being a company that buyers Trust
- Examples of Rapid Growth Optimisation
