The second in our series of Digital Creatives events, #GrowSocial, went down at our Soho service and customer experience centre at the end of April, and it was another big success. This time round, we were looking at how to grow brands using digital tools and social media, and had some great speakers on hand imparting their wisdom.
To everyone who made it down, we just wanted to say a big thank you! We’d love it if you could let us know how you found the evening by filling in this feedback form. To anyone who didn’t, we’ve given a quick rundown of some of the highlights below. Keep an eye on our events page for the next Digital Creatives event!
Drop-in session with Apple, Adobe, Wacom, EIZO and Extensis. Before the presentations were underway, we held a drop-in session with demos from Apple, Adobe, Wacom, EIZO and Extensis – a great way for attendees to check out the latest kit and solutions.
An update from Jigsaw24 – Tariq Saied, CTO, Jigsaw24. Our CTO Tariq kicked off the talks with an insight into Jigsaw24’s solutions and services, and some of the great projects we’ve completed over the past few months. He also spoke about the new training packages we’re offering and our upcoming events in May.
Unleashing your audience – Adam Stamper, Founder and CEO, Hashtag’d. As a curation platform whose sole domain is social, Hashtag’d were able to give a fantastic and cutting edge insight into online marketing. They demonstrated how their product has been integral to many social campaigns, including realtime adverts for IMAX.
JAMF Nation: Growing an online community – Paul Gibbons, National Accounts, JAMF Software. Paul from JAMF Software explained how they’ve grown their JAMF Nation online community from zero to nearly 30k users in just five years. Their JAMF Nation User Conference (JNUC), a series of community presentations, education sessions and expert insights, received 1750 registrations last year, showing how generating a community and getting the user base talking can be an extremely useful promotion tool and enhance your brand.
Generating content for social with Apple and Adobe – Ed Reisner, Marketing Manager, Jigsaw24. One presentation that really got people talking was Ed’s look at designing for social media campaigns with Apple and Adobe, across both mobile and desktop workflows. He showed how you can use the Adobe Capture app for iOS to take inspiration and create while on the move, before taking designs to Adobe’s desktop apps for editing and delivery. You can see Adobe Capture and Adobe Draw in action in our short video here.
The move to digital media – Iain Seers, Managing Director, Watershed Consulting. Our final talk of the evening saw Iain Seers from Watershed Consulting explaining how prolific social and online marketing campaigns are becoming. It was a really great talk that included some interesting (and one particularly hilarious) videos on social methods.
“Good session with some useful insights. It was well judged, the speakers were given the right amount of time to keep it lively. We came down from Leeds, it was worth the trip. Thanks for organising it.” – Pete Camponi, Creative Partner, Us And Them Ideas
