Victor Madueno – Mastering The Social Media Maturity Model
As an exponent of the social media landscape, Victor has seen social media go from strength to strength. Originally starting off with forums, Victor’s journey has taken him to Your Social, a strategic creative agency, where he serves as head of Social & Advertising.
Victor’s Click Jam 2 presentation on social media’s maturity model examines the necessary frameworks and models your business needs to become a social business. Highlights include:
– Content is transforming. To stand out from the noise, several disciplines and social channels must be used to tell your brand story.
– Businesses that embrace the maturity models can expect up to 77% more profit.
– Four key areas must be defined to mature your business in a social sense. The four areas are Goals, Metrics, Initiatives, Organisation & Resources.
– Social is the most visual storytelling that brands can have to increase their exposure.

Alexander Rauser – Putting Your Content Straight
Having written for numerous online publications and authored the book “Digital Strategy: A Guide to Digital Business Transformation,” Alexander Rauser knows a thing or two about creating engaging content.
His Click Jam 2 touches on creating content that garners a lot of attention. Highlights include:
– The importance of creating content less frequently to produce higher results and add more creativity to the content you create
– Using live video to produce a lot of engagement. This requires less effort but still produces high-quality content
– Instead of focusing on content medium with limited longevity, focus on publications like a white paper or a book. Doing this extends the longevity of your content.
– If you want to get the most out of the types of content with shorter lifespans, consider reusing it.
