Tod Maffin is one of North America’s leading digital marketing experts, specializing in viral and ROI-based campaigns for sectors from public relations to human resources, real estate and education. He will be giving us a 90-minute presentation on how to ensure social media tools are working for your organization.

Tod believes that it’s clear now — the new model of communications includes missives just 140 characters long. But while some public relations practitioners struggle with incorporating social media tools into their communications plans, many others have mastered the simple ROI metrics behind digital communications. In Tod’s insightful presentation, you’ll learn the simple steps to assure strong ROI behind your campaigns, prove your value, and boost results.

This presentation is part of CPRS-VI’s ongoing series called “Real World PR,” which looks at how best practices in public relations are being used today. This series is made possible through the generous financial support of Royal Roads University, which offers a range of public relations and communications programs that examine language, media, culture and technology and applies that knowledge from a variety of disciplines to the demands of today.
