Social Media in Business – Survey

Screen Shot 2016-05-16 at 19.05.06I blogged two years ago about the value of Social Media in business; specifically MY business. Read it here: What’s Twitter Worth To You?.

In short, I valued my Social Media exposure, primarily Twitter, as worth £100,000 to my business in just 6 months.

223231-1wsmlc1400617305Two years on, Social Media is dominating most business’s sales strategy, marketing strategy, R&D, customer feedback, new product development…and corporate personality.

It’s no longer enough to just throw a website up, especially with content that is just your 2007 corporate literature transcribed online. Regardless of your business, your digital shopfront extends to social media sites; and the smarter business’s are now really capitalising on it whilst others are yet to embrace, and risk falling (even further) behind.


Survey: Where do you see Social Media’s place in business?

To have your say, take part in this short SURVEY (it will take about 1 minute) – results will be published on 23rd May.

All entrants will be placed in a draw to win a prize donated by businesses that have, in turn, fully embraced and reaped benefit from Social Media:
