So, how do you ensure that people know about your brand—and know what you want them to know? And tell their friends? Right now? Come to SMW NYC, that’s how! The speakers at these events have the answers to these questions and so many more, like what platform to use, who to partner with, and what to do when your content might pop up and disappear in just a few seconds.

This panel, hosted by Click 3x, introduces you to a few such innovators, including Chet Gulland of Droga5, Julie Anne Quay of VFiles, and Christan Summers Raison D’Etre.
