Wowza today announced Jeff Rabkin, its co-founder and Director of Great Ideas, is scheduled to speak at the Minnesota Bankers Association’s Marketing Conference April 16, 2008.
Bringing nearly 20 years of strategic and creative experience to the Marketing Conference, Rabkin will speak about word of mouth marketing, the fastest growing form of marketing that gives people a reason to talk about a company’s products or services, and makes it easier for those conversations to take place. Rabkin will also discuss the following:
• Customers and control—using the tools they have, such as the Internet, to communicate and respond in public.
• You are what you are—not what you say you are—not what you think you are. The user experience is what defines you.
• Honesty and transparency are the only choice.
• Happy customers are money in your bank.
• Are you interesting? What’s there to talk about?
• Tips, tools, technology and techniques.
At Wowza, Rabkin is responsible for conceptualizing word of mouth marketing strategies, brand consulting, copywriting and new business development. Rabkin has received numerous awards from professional organizations, including the Clios, The One Club, Retail Advertising Council (RAC) and the Minneapolis Show. For the past nine years Rabkin has also served on the faculty at Brainco: Minneapolis School of Advertising, Design and Interactive Studies.
