Social media is regularly quoted as being a “top priority” for UK marketers. It’s very easy for businesses to enter the space through free social media platforms but it’s more difficult for many to see the value from it; especially with such pressure to make immediate returns. This presentation will explain why socialising your brand is important but takes dedication and the realisation that social media isn’t about broadcasting but interacting. It is the latest evolution of communication and is here to stay. How should a brand go about developing a social media strategy, executing it and tracking it? We’ll aim to give you a taster in this presentation.
