About your Social Media Advertising Seminar Leader:

James McCracken: is the first to admit that when it comes to Social Media and Multi-Channel Marketing, no one has all of the answers. His goal for any client or student is to bring a sense of calm to the chaos.  By teaching the fundamentals of Organic and Paid Social Media in a practical manner, he helps identify and improve their marketing strategies.  Throughout his career James has seen how many companies struggle to integrate new technology and niche marketing strategies, often times failing to leverage their competitive advantage. He sees a lot of similarities between the challenges companies faced in the early 90’s and the present. Several decades ago many companies rushed to get online; recently they have had the misfortune of joining the Social Media Movement without first developing a strategy or setting goals. Consequently they overlook the opportunity to integrate Social Media within their existing marketing execution and never realize positive return on investment. James’s credits his unique approach to a diverse marketing and management consulting background.  His first marketing role was at Schwan’s Consumer Brands.  There he managed communication with brand, channel and trade partners in developing experiential and channel marketing programs in an effort to overcome disconnect between long-term brand strategies and tactical sales execution. He moved on to developing successful field, sports and event marketing programs for Pepsi, Frito-Lay and Schwan’s. As a management consultant James has provided strategic insight covering a broad range of engagements encompassing due diligence, acquisitions, organic growth, strategic planning, and competitive intelligence. He feels fortunate to have worked with a wide variety of clients spanning numerous industries including healthcare, insurance, automotive, consumer and building products.
