2016 LIMRA LOMA Social Business Conference For Financial Services Explores Social Media Impact on Business
WINDSOR, Conn., July 14, 2016 — A new LIMRA study reports that 82 percent of financial professionals use social media to market themselves and their businesses. Once viewed by companies and advisors as a compliance headache, the use of social media has quickly evolved into becoming an essential tool to prospect for new clients and strengthen relationships with current ones.
Social media as an advisory strategy will be a featured session at the 2016 LIMRA LOMA Social Business Conference for Financial Services scheduled August 17–19, 2016 in Boston, MA.
This year’s Social Business conference will focus on connecting with and engaging consumers, and will explore the innovative and disruptive ideas that challenge today’s financial services world. Content will emphasize the best forward-thinking social practices, emerging technologies, social recruiting tools, and compliance issues.
Conference highlights include:
- Opening Keynote speaker Scott Stratten, president of Un-Marketing, will offer a fresh perspective on how to effectively market, sell and engage, that “flips traditional advice on its head.”
- Deepanjan De, industry lead, Financial Services for Facebook will discuss the economic shift to mobile and what that means for the financial services industry.
- Stephen Arthur, director, US Financial Services, Google on “micro-moments” and their significance to the customer experience.
- A pre-conference conversation with innovators in the start-up world, to learn about what they are developing, the ways they define success, and how to apply their techniques to your business.
During the conference, LIMRA and LOMA will present the Fourth Annual #SilverBowlAwards for excellence in the use of social media in financial services.
