  • It is also important. We work with hundreds of Community Managers, Social Strategists, etc. at Argyle – some are like Maria and Justin that have made the leap into an influential, cross-functional role. Others are pigeon-holed in a corner scrounging for resources and recognition. Most are in between.In our experience, the customers that have made the leap are those that “get it” – that understand that social is about business. Hence we’re talking about social business with Justin and Maria. The more social marketers that can elevate their game and become strategic assets inside of their organization, the better it is for all of us.
