When #LoveWins: How to Sustain a Viral Movement

Saturday, March 12
5:00PM - 6:00PM

Hilton Austin Downtown
Salon J
500 E 4th St

Because “going viral” sometimes feels a little more like winning the lottery than cracking a code, it’s easy to be left wondering, “What’s next?” Many of the year’s most popular movements were left shocked by success, and scrambled to keep the momentum going. Come to this panel to learn from the creators of the 150 million views hit #LoveHasNoLabels and other veteran viral marketers who’ve been there--those who’ve seen one-hit-wonders fade away but also seen entire movements rise from the ashes. We’ll take a critical eye at some of the year’s most popular pieces of content and break down what worked, what didn’t and what components need to be in place to ensure ongoing success.
