Brendan Gahan, a US expert on social media marketing, one of Forbes’ 30 Under 30 minds in marketing, as well as one of the 160 best young leaders and a personal guest of US President Barack Obama, will be one of the speakers at this year’s Digital Day, which takes place on the 25th May in Belgrade’s Dom Omladine (Youth Centre).
Gahan was one of the first who started using YouTube stars. He has orchestrated a number of viral campaigns and digital influencers and has directed the implementation of the first advertising integration on platforms Imgur and Formspring. He is a regular commentator on a variety of topics related to YouTube, he has appeared on CNBC, Al-Jazeera and other media where he talked about how to attract attention on the social networks and manage the sharing of content.
At Digital Day, Gahan will give a lecture “Influencer marketing: the epic victories, defeats and lessons learned”, during which he will present the role of “digitals” in marketing and how to include them in it, and will share the best examples of connecting them with brands, with both successful and unsuccessful results. According to Gahan, the biggest progress in creating successful viral campaigns happens when agencies and brands involve iconic creators of viral content and stop “fighting” them.
