Social Media

Social media can be a time- and resource-vampire if it's not integrated into the rest of your communications strategy.

How is your social media strategy? Are you simply broadcasting your content? That's inexpensive, but you're simply adding to the noise. Do you really want to be part of that problem?

The secret is to not have a social media strategy: a separate strategy prevents social media becoming an integral part of your content marketing, community development, digital transformation and innovation strategies.

It also tends to put social media in Team Ghetto, when you should be mainstreaming it across your workforce.

Instead, view social media as a set of tactics within an integrated communication strategy, with each social platform harnessed to your overall communication goals.
