Pleiades Media in association with Social Media trainer and coach Irma Karsten will be hosting JCCI’s First Monday meeting on April 3, 2017, focusing on social media marketing and its value for business.
What is Social Business?
Despite the fact that we live in a digital era, people still buy from people.
Social selling today is really an extension of traditional sales models involving the sales team – only it’s now digital and more connected. Social selling helps businesses to engage more personally with their customers. It also promotes information sharing and builds brands.
In this short, but impactful presentation, we intend demystifying some social media marketing perceptions and share practical ways for businesses to build their brand and increase sales leads via these powerful channels.
