19.45 Fun, team building and more networking - Those who came over the last few months will remember the fun we had after the presentations! By Marrtha Jesty of Latin Parties UK
Social media is best known for its use as part of a marketing communications mix or marketing campaign. Social media is also starting to be used as part of a social, local mobile strategy.
It should be recognised that applications for social media go across the business and these go far beyond just marketing. Leaders need to consider this carefully.
In today’s markets that are being driven by acquisition and merger and collaborative working, the benefits of a robust social media strategy may have a profound effect on the competitive advantage that an organisation can gain.
Leaders should consider a layered view or more holistic application of social media and what the benefits may be. Benefits such as better stakeholder risk management, transformational change management, image, reputation, innovation, cultural integration and learning as well as marketing matrices and hard ROI are there to be reaped.
For simplicity sake I have listed a few of the key benefits here
