Getting A Return On Investment From Social Media
While a powerful case can be made for the importance of social media, many companies are struggling with this channel.
How can a business justify time and effort spent on social media when it cannot see where the return on investment is coming?
Without the correct metrics to measure and manage the effectiveness of social media how can any spend be rationalised?
While businesses struggle with these questions, social media is becoming too important for companies to ignore. It has become a major provider of information for a majority of the population of the UK. Whether it is current affairs, what TV shows are currently hot or looking for advice about new products and services, an increasing amount of individuals are relying on social platforms as a source of knowledge.
Moreover, social media now plays a huge role in search engine optimisation. In other words, if you want your website to be found you better be represented on social plat-forms.
In this workshop, Grant Leboff unlocks the world of social media. He explains exactly why companies need to be on social. Grant then goes on to provide businesses with the strategic thinking they need to employ in order to make social media work effectively.
