By now you'd be hard pressed to find a business that doesn't have some presence within social media channels - but there's a marked difference between having a Facebook Page and actively engaging in effective Social Media Marketing (SMM).
Marketing must meet the needs of tech-savvy customers knowledgeable of brands and product information due to the rapid growth of connectivity, available information and expansion of channels. Before making a purchase decision, customers often consult more than 10 sources including social media, user reviews, online stores and brand comparisons.
And, customers want to be recognized across all the platforms through which they interact with you – whether speaking to your employees on a mobile phone, tweeting at the brand or creating a shopping cart online. Similarly, you want to recognize every step of these journeys and understand the significance of each one.
