Brands know that the conversation with active and potential customers starts — and likely ends — with reputation. Rhea Drysdale joined #SEJLive this week to talk about understanding your brand’s reputation through reputation marketing.
Rhea also gave examples of companies doing reputation marketing right and shared advice on how teams can work together to build a good reputation for their company. Her session involved a lively and interactive discussion so I recommend watching the video below to check out the topics she covered.
