Rapid changes in consumer behavior, fuelled by the ever increasing popularity of social media and the adoption of consumer technologies in the workplace, urge companies worldwide to rethink their positions. People spend more and more time online to connect and interact with friends, to publish opinions, and to purchase goods and services. Employees share their views online, strengthening or weakening the corporate brand.
Social Media is human interaction in a virtual world. Social Media is strongly related to topics such as social networking, social collaboration, micro blogging, co creation, crowd sourcing, content sharing and reputation management.
The essence of social media is human interaction. Transforming your company to benefit from new ways of human interaction, is not about a technology push, lead by new tools, new architectures and new platforms. It is a true transformation of the way you conduct business, how you relate and interact with your customers, your stakeholders and your employees. It is about being part of a huge ecosystem, where your clients, employees, and business partners are all visibly and actively interconnected.
These changes offer exciting opportunities to all enterprises. Opportunities to increase revenue, strengthen brand, reduce costs, attract the right employees, and deliver products and services according to the wishes of their customers.
