Brand Newsroom Marketing Podcast

Research firm eMarketer has predicted that by 2017, the global social network audience will total 2.55 billion. With a global audience of this size, and with portable access across many devices, these figures indicate social media will continue to be a vital tool in reaching your desired market.

However, social media is a lot more complicated than it used to be. It’s no longer as simple as setting up a Twitter account, and it is certainly no longer ‘free to use’ for businesses. Love it or hate it, social media can be a key method for distributing your content marketing efforts. So how should you invest in social media?

The Brand Newsroom team discuss their personal experiences and professional expertise surrounding social media.

How do you achieve the balance?
