The Case for Sponsorship

Social media has upended traditional marketing practices. In the brave new world of the interactive, always-connected customer, success is measured by level of engagement, not simply by number of clicks or eyeballs. Today’s customers and potential customers demand a participative role in the media they consume. Social enterprise is more personal, more social, more niche than anyone might have suspected before the social networking zeitgeist.

Moderated online business/social communities like Human Capital League allow business organizations to connect with desirable, well-defined constituencies in a conversational framework. Targeted online communities—in combination with more traditional marketing approaches – can be the best way to bring a company’s ideas to an arena where they can be tested, developed and, ultimately, win converts.

Think of Human Capital League as the anchor for all your social media efforts.  Your blog posts reach a wider audience daily, your white papers, newsletters,  webinars,  special offers, other social networking page get daily  promotion not simply through the site but also through our 30,000+ Twitter network.  We also promote extensively through StumbleUpon, the single best demand generation tool .   

By providing new, useful and targeted posts daily,  moderated BtoB blog communities like Human Capital League attract and build over time a loyal following of readers whose interests are precisely matched to those of the sponsoring organization.  They are a perfect fit for companies who understand that having 2000 daily readers who might actually buy your product is better than reaching 2 million people who won't.

Our short pitch is that we help you leverage the enormous power of social media to build deeper and more engaged relationships with potential customers and other constituencies that influence the development of new business.
