Social Marketing for Policy Makers: The “Help Me” Approach, iSMA Webinar

November 17 and 18, 2016

Policy Makers traditionally use one of two major strategies to influence citizen behavior change: Laws and Education.  This presentation will explore how Social Marketers can distinguish and promote a third option, Social Marketing, highlighting that it often provides the greatest return on investment of resources. The presentation will address when and why the Social Marketing option should be considered. Examples of Social Marketing strategies in the U.S. (versus Laws or Education) will be highlighted, ones that improved public health, prevented injuries, protected the environment, engaged communities, and enhanced financial well-being.

This 60-minute iSMA webinar will be presented by Nancy Lee (Social Marketing Services).

Free for iSMA members. iSMA membership is only $49.95, $24.95 for students, and $4.95 / $2.95 a year for those from developing countries.
