TechMavericks Talkshow | Turning Buzz into Business!

Leveraging social media to get ahead of your competitors!

Adding “Like”, “Comment” and “Share” functions to digital touchpoints have become bread and butter for business executives, but few have yet to harness the power of social media. Find out from the experts on how you can turn your ideas into viral posts on social media!

Consumers today receive promotional content, seek recommendations on products and services, and share feedback about their experiences on a variety of social media platforms. Commercial customers are also taking their business conversations online, radically transforming the landscape for B2B marketing as well.

Social media has offered itself as a double edged sword to business leaders today. On one hand, it breaks down geographical barriers and acts as a force multiplier to word-of-mouth awareness building and promotional marketing. On the other hand, it also allows for complaints and negative publicity to spread like wildfire.

Today, sales and marketing executives are cognizant about the role of social media in their businesses. However, most practitioners still struggle to maximise business value out of their investments in social media.

Join us, as we gather the experts in social media to shed light on this emerging hot topic amongst businesses today.
