WHO’S A SOCIAL MEDIA STRATEGIST?
People who work in social media marketing are “in the know”. They seamlessly move from screen to screen monitoring and contributing to the conversation. Twitter, Facebook, tumblr, Instagram, reddit, Pinterest, LinkedIn, YouTube, Google+, the list seems as infinite as the amount of content out there and keeping your consumer engaged is different for each platform. People are constantly connected and brands need to be where the consumer is. If you want to be a part of the conversation, you need to be comfortable with multiscreen communication.
