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.
