                    Why Businesses are using Social Media?

                    Why take Training, when you can outsource?

                    Social Media is a relatively nascent media for businesses. All the main stream agencies are also trying to figure out how to use it effectively to fulfill business objectives. Moreover, the use of Social Media is not just restricted to Marketing. Businesses are using it for Sales, HR, CRM, Product development & many other functions. Therefore, it is important that everyone should acquire moderate knowledge of Social Media before deciding the implementation plan.

                    99.5% of Social Media Experts Are Clowns! People who look the part, speak the part, definitely read a lot of content on the part, and then come into the business and don’t really know what to do.

                    Gary Vaynerchuk, CEO & Co-Founder of Vayner Media

                    What kind of businesses are leveraging Social Media Marketing?

                    We think that the right question which should be asked is “Do your customers, employees, partners or influencers access Social Media?”. If the answer is “Yes” for anyone of them, Social Media cannot be ignored. The only question is how to design your campaign to get the best possible ROI. That is, what you will figure out in our Social Media Training Program?

                    “Social media is your opportunity to reach a massive number of people with transparency, honesty, and integrity.”

                    Brian E. Boyd Sr., Social Media for the Executive
