The FCS will shine a spotlight on State Street Global Advisors SPDR ETFs in a virtual event focused on using social media to drive engagement.
The financial services industry is awash in thought leadership angling for the attention of an informed and busy audience. SSGA has been able to break through and forge a loyal following in this challenging environment. This event will show that when original content is delivered to a highly engaged audience -- in this case, on LinkedIn -- financial services brands can establish themselves as authentic thought leaders and anchors of trust while realizing the benefits of a full-funnel marketing solution.
Our panel will talk to this successful partnership with real-world results:
- Liz Kiehm, Head of Social Media, State Street Global Advisors SPDR ETFs
- Amy Ricketts, Senior Account Director, EMI Strategic Marketing
- Michael Katz, Sr. Manager, Enterprise Financial Services Vertical, LinkedIn
Join us for a virtual conversation that will bring to life a compelling case study.
