Marketing Science Intensive: Mining Social Media for Marketing Insights


Marketing Science Intensive featuring David Schweidel

Social media offers marketers the ability to listen in on consumers. But, how can we cut through all the chatter to identify meaningful takeaways? In this intensive, David Schweidel from Emory University will teach how marketers can leverage social media data to derive customer insights. He will share how consumers’ social media activity can be used to evaluate marketing efforts, monitor brand health and craft content for brands’ social media posts. This session will begin at 1pm ET. 

The Marketing Science Intensives Program enables you to build your knowledge portfolio and learn techniques you can apply to your business today, using MSI’s trusted platform of leading academics and top marketers. These monthly live virtual workshops are available exclusively to MSI members.

Over the course of a year, the stackable learning experiences will deliver a foundational understanding of the most exciting topics in marketing today. In each two-hour Intensive, a top academic will present new research-generated knowledge on an important topic in consumer behaviour, marketing analytics, or marketing strategy, offering breakthrough insights and practical applications for marketers. With a focus on active learning, the virtual working environment enables participants to raise questions and share insights with others from industry-leading companies.

Designed to provide deep learning with real job relevance, Intensives include pre-reads and assignments ahead of the workshop as well as a post-event reading and resource list. All workshops are designed to be relevant across industries and company roles and to accommodate varying levels of expertise in qualitative and quantitative approaches.
