For the last few years businesses have been trying to get their heads around Social Media and how it can fit into their marketing mix. At Optix we got in early, we made the mistakes, we spent time learning so we could impart our knowledge on others. For the last year or so we have been working with our clients to help them build Social Media into their marketing and communications strategy.
Last week we were invited to make a board level presentation on Social Media to a national organisation and then went on to facilitate a discussion based on that presentation. We will now go on to consult this organisation on a regular basis, helping them with the delivery of their message through Social Media tools.
We also spent time with a medium sized organisation in Devon (150 staff) learning about their current marketing mix. We then conducted a significant piece of research work into their industry and put together a strategy which was presented to the board and their marketing team. This piece of work outlined everything we believe they now need to put in place from ‘monitoring systems’ to creation of blogs/key communicators within the firm and consistency of message. We will also be training their staff on the various tools we’ve put forward for use. Most importantly we’ve helped this company define kpi’s for success so that the board can see the impact of the work they start doing in the social space and how it’s working for them.
