Cognito is also about to launch the results of some new research into the use of social media in the financial sector. To ensure you get a copy, please email Tom.Coombes@cognitomedia.com.
For those who are confused as to what to do, here is an at a glance tip guide.
- Focus on developing quality content
Interesting news, opinion and positioning is more important than ever
- Evaluate the best channels for your business
Few companies can afford to send everything to everyone. Who are your audiences? What do they read? Which industry sites do they spend time at? Pick your distribution mechanisms accordingly.
- Plan, don't react
Step back and plan your approach and landscape. Thorough planning and evaluation of the options from the outset is critical.
