Converseon is an award-winning full service social media agency that has been helping leading brands join the conversation to meet their business goals since 2001.

We are led by a diverse group of some of the industry’s brightest minds who have banded together to create a new approach that fully leverages the changing ways people gather, act and share on information.

In short, we were designed from the ground up to become the world’s leading social media agency. And during that time we’ve learned through deep experience what works…and what doesn’t.

We understand that the real value of social doesn’t come from the latest viral video or Twitter account. While these can be useful tactics, real sustainable social media success comes from infusing the value of social into the DNA of a brand. And we help our clients achieve just that by providing a full end to end solution that includes the listening /engagement /workflow technologies, organizational consulting, engagement services and measurement solutions.

We haven’t just followed best practices, we’ve helped pioneer them. We don’t just talk about the potentials of social, we’ve achieved them.

And we believe most organizations are still just scratching the surface of the possible.

Converseon helps harness the value of social from the “inside-out” through our proprietary technologies, methodologies and deep implementation experience. Our best practice approach helps brands listen to, organize around, engage with and measure the conversation.

Our approach has garnered an enviable reputation for innovation and effectiveness working with some of the world’s leading brands.

And while we’re a full service solution, social is at the heart of all we do.

Converseon is a long time member of the Word of Mouth Marketing Association (WOMMA) and member of its Ethics Committee, a Fellow at New Communications Forum and a member of the Advertising Research Foundation (ARF). Converseon’s leaders are well recognized as industry innovators and have spoken in a range of leading industry conferences including Search Engine Strategies, New Communications Forum, Internet Retailer, Ad:Tech, WOMMA, Internet Retailer, OMMA Social, Public Relations Society of America, Bulldog Reporter, among many others.
