The emergence of social media tools like blogs, video sharing sites and social networks are enabling people to create very persuasive content about their favorite brands and companies -- even though they have no official connection to the company. The opinions and experiences expressed in this content are reaching millions of people and having a significant influence on their purchase decisions.

In her recent book, "Citizen Marketers," author Jackie Huba profiles the people who create this content, build communities and influence the opinions of many others. She demonstrates that the rules are different in social media. Citizen marketers cannot be manipulated or controlled like traditional forms of media, but they should not be ignored.

Jackie Huba will join host Jim Nail, CMO of TNS Media Intelligence/Cymfony, on this live hour-long webinar to discuss the motivations and actions of influential citizen marketers so you can learn what they are looking for from the companies they embrace and how they'd like to be treated. We'll discuss what you can do to democratize your business to foster more citizen marketers.
