    The 2022 Sprout Social Index: Exploring Trends for the UK & Ireland | Sprout Social - Cat Anderson

    The 2022 Sprout Social Index: Exploring Trends for the UK & Ireland | Sprout Social - Cat Anderson

    Sprout Social’s annual Index is popular in the States, but for the first time new data this year explores the state of social for British and Irish brands - and there’s plenty of opportunity to gauge from it. To talk us through the report, we’re joined by Cat Anderson, Sprout Social’s head of marketing for EMEA. In this, we learn which platform most consumers are on but marketers aren’t, why the pandemic has led to social teams restructuring, and why British and Irish consumers want to see more distinctive assets and less societal issues from brands on social.

    Never Caught Sleeping: Why PUMA Puts Moments Before Products on Social | Abigail Rogers, PUMA Group

    Sports brands have to prepare for every possible outcome in live football. One that does it better than most is PUMA, whose personalised reactive assets have stepped up the standard on social from stock imagery to bespoke illustrations that its athletes love to share. In this episode we’re joined by Abigail Rogers, PUMA’s team head of global creative content, to find out why PUMA talks more about key moments in sport than it does about its products. Expect to hear what’s sitting in the brand’s content graveyard, how to plan for reactive content, and how PUMA’s response differs between new player sign-ups, club sponsorships, and major tournaments.
