Chadwick Martin Bailey and Vivaldi Partners Group to Host Live Webinar on Social Currency: The New Brand Building Model

chadwick martin bailey and vivaldi partnersBoston, MA | June 20, 2016 – Chadwick Martin Bailey (CMB), leading provider of data-driven market strategy solutions, and Vivaldi Partners Group, the global brand growth strategy firm, announced today they will host a live, complimentary webinar titled “Social Currency: the New Brand-Building Model” on Wednesday, June 22, from 12:30 PM to 1:00 PM Eastern Time. The webinar will offer expert commentary from Erich Joachimsthaler, Founder and CEO of Vivaldi Partners Group, Brant Cruz, VP of CMB’s Digital Media & Entertainment Practice, and Erica Carranza, CMB Account Director.

“Social Currency is a much broader and more relevant concept than social media. It involves activation strategies around expression, conversation, affiliation, and more. It brings a systematic way of building brands in a social and mobile world,” explains Erich Joachimsthaler. “The next stage of digital transformation will require adopting a higher degree of customer-centricity and Social Currency will be key to doing impactful journey mapping and customer experience work.”

Vivaldi Partners Group teamed up with CMB in a 90-brand study to uncover which consumer behaviors drive brand equity and to understand how consumers’ interactions with brands and each other form their social and personal identities.

This webinar will cover the power of Social Currency to create successful brand strategies and answer the tough questions facing marketers and insights professionals today:

  • What do brands need to do in order to adapt?
  • How can brands keep consumers at the center of their digital transformation?
  • How can brands benchmark where they are now, understand why, identify the way forward, and track progress?
