Rather than act as a â€˜101 guideâ€™ for using various social media platforms, Somesso aims to answer the questions posed by the evolution of todayâ€™s communication channels, bridging the gap between corporate culture and the â€˜web 2.0 societyâ€™, showcasing strategies to bring the corporate community closer to the conversations within their markets in ways that directly benefit your business.
This FIR Listener Contest is made possible thanks to Somesso CEO Arjen Strijker.
What is the Contest?
Itâ€™s simple: imagine youâ€™re in a meeting with your CEO or other senior executive, and she asks you three questions about your organization and social media:
- How can you help make this organization â€œsocial media savvyâ€?
- Where would you start?
- What kind of tools and strategy would you implement?
Listen to Arjen describe Somesso London 09 and the contest in more detail: download the MP3 file (3Mb, 6:29) or listen right now with the Flash player at the top of the page.
