Humanity Isn’t A Trend: It's The Key To Digital Marketing And Branding Success

February 6, 2019  | 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM

Terry Isner, CEO/Owner, Marketing and Branding, Jaffe PR

Emotion is the next big thing in digital marketing and it’s time to share your lawyer’s human side of genius. We need to humanize our marketing and branding efforts, people want to hear from people, connect with people, collaborate and share with other like-minded people. An emotional connection is where brand loyalty begins. We have to always remember that no matter what form of technology we use that there is always a person on the other end looking for something… most likely your help.

This program will look at how the technology revolution moved us from slogans and selling to stories and self-expression and why it’s forcing us to empathize and humanize legal marketing. Discuss how technology not only changed the branding and marketing game, but how it improved it by fostering an emotional connection with audiences and communities. Rethink and reimagine the use of email, blogs, your website and social media with a human first, always, approach.

Attendees will learn:

  • How human nature and an emotional connection are driving the way we market.
  • The human characteristic that we need to apply to our content and digital marketing campaigns.
  • The different forms of technology and digital tools and how we should use them in a human first marketing strategy.
  • How technology creates a brand culture of sharing and engaging.
