How to Become a Socially Engaged Enterprise
It is becoming widely acknowledged that in order to successfully leverage social media, an enterprise needs to have buy-in from senior management. In fact, according to a recent study by PulsePoint, organizations with C-level social media advocates see returns four times greater than companies that are less socially engaged. How can you spark interest in social media in your management team and achieve a higher return on investment?
In a five-part webinar series, PulsePoint Partner Michael Gale kindly agreed to share the best practices he has learned from his professional experience and the results of the PulsePoint study. The research was gathered in conjunction with The Economist Intelligence Unit, helping business leaders prepare for opportunity and empowering them to act with confidence when making strategic decisions. In the webinar series, Michael outlines how enterprises can achieve the highest ROI from their social media strategy, engage the C-suite and even ‘crowdsource’ new product ideas.
Recorded over a 2-month period, the webinars are now available to be viewed online, on demand.
