SAN FRANCISCO — November 13, 2017 —  Influitive has announced the finalists for the 4th annual Best Advocate Marketing Awards—A.K.A. The BAMMIES.

Each year, the best and brightest advocate marketers are recognized for their ability to leverage their customers as their strongest marketing assets—fueling customer acquisition, engagement, and retention.

Influitive CEO and BAMMIES founder Mark Organ says “Marketers that put advocacy at the heart of their go-to-market strategy are the ones who are poised for success. I’m incredibly proud of the caliber of marketers and teams entering the BAMMIES this year. These finalists are in a class of their own for customer-centric marketing.”

The 10 nomination categories were revamped for 2017 to include two new awards for Best Discover-Nurture-Mobilize Strategy and Best Global Advocacy Program.

Winners will be announced at a live awards ceremony during Advocamp, on December 7th, 2017 in San Francisco at One Market Restaurant. Advocamp is the largest event focused on customer engagement, experience, and advocacy.

Winners receive a trophy and are featured in Influitive’s yearly eBook, Award-Winning Advocate Marketing Success Stories.

The Influitive team needs your help judging the final and most coveted category: Advocate Marketing Program of the Year. This category is decided by popular vote. The voting period begins on Monday, November 13th, and ends on Friday November 24th at 5 pm EST.
