Many companies jump into social media without fully considering: Fit with brand positioning and target consumer audience;
and alignment and integration with business strategies and marketing plans.
This presentation discusses a systematic approach to integrate social media into the planning process.
This presentation was originally developed by Lisa Gunther, Bert DuMars and Maria Lopez for the Southeast Association of National Advertisers conference held at Newell Rubbermaid July 29, 2010. Bert DuMars modified this version and presented it at the Social Fresh Charlotte conference on August 16, 2010.
