8 essential Talkwalker webinars marketers can’t miss

From pandemic audience trends to what makes the world’s most loved brands shine, hear tips from the experts in our best webinar sessions of 2020 (so far).

NEW REPORT: The World's Most Loved Brands

It may only be six months in, but I’m making a prediction that 2020 will be the Year of the Webinar.

Global events have caused entire industries to shift gears and we’re living online more than ever. “Virtual events” have replaced in-person communing, and a lot of the experiential budgets that marketers set aside in January have been funneled into webinars and online conference investment by July.

For some, the increase of virtual events and webinars has presented the once rare opportunity to reach new audiences in real time.

Talkwalker is no stranger to hosting essential webinars for marketers and communications professionals, so we’ve tackled the pivot to virtual with tenacity. Below, you’ll find a comprehensive list of unmissable virtual roundtables, presentations, and fireside chats so far this year. From COVID-19 conversations to #SMWONE sessions, we’ve had a roster of industry rockstars partake in some of our most interesting and well-attended webinars to date in 2020.

And we’re not slowing down! After you take a peek at what we’ve covered, check out what else we have in store on Talkwalker's webinar page.

Turn Data Into Action

Are you simply collecting data on your social campaigns and influencer partnerships, or are you turning those findings into ways to boost your overall marketing program?

Back in the pre-pandemic days, Talkwalker CEO of the Americas, Todd Grossman, sat down with Geoffrey Sidari, SVP of Advanced Analytics at WE Communications, to discuss how brands can democratize data and set up their teams for success. This webinar breaks down how you can translate your insights into actionable measures that impact your business bottom line by asking questions, learning what drives purchasing decisions, and selecting the right analytics tools for your needs.

Chris Penn on Social Media Audience Trends During the Pandemic

It’s clear that COVID-19 will play a huge role in how social media marketers plan the remainder of 2020, but what changes have already taken place that will have a big impact on where they’re investing dollars?

In May, Christopher S. Penn (Co-founder and Chief Data Scientist at Trust Insights) shared highlights with Talkwalker from his report, “Social Media Audience Trends During the Pandemic”. This webinar explores the top social networks where people are spending time this year: YouTube, gaming networks, and niche home-based communities. Get actionable advice on how to reach consumers on the networks they frequent using social listening, targeted ads, influencers, and content that speaks to their interests.

Build Trust from the Inside Out

Traditionally, marketing and communications plans have focused on customers and investors. But today, employees can become vocal advocates—or critics—of the organizations they work for, and that can impact the opinions of external parties. Now more than ever, organizations must engage with all of their stakeholders in new ways to build trust in their brand from the inside out.

In this Talkwalker webinar, Todd Grossman is joined by Antoine Harary, President of Edelman Intelligence, to share insights on how consultancies are working with their clients to help them build trust with customers, investors, and employees alike. Listen to the on-demand session to learn about the latest trends, tools and tactics being used by brands to establish emotional resonance with their audience and build long-term strategies for both customer and employee retention.
