Doing What’s Right For You
There is a lot of buzz around social media and it’s tempting to think that everybody needs to have a social presence. There is no such mandate! Having a Facebook page where the last post is 3 months old is worse than not having a Facebook page at all.
People often ask if they should be on Twitter or Instagram. The answer: “I don’t know”. In the absence of more information it is impossible to make that call.
What I do know is, that you need to be aware what people are saying about your business online, or you can’t put it right. A social media listening strategy IS a mandate.
To know if social media marketing is right for you depends on your objectives, target audience, and resources. It’s important to consider opportunity costs and determine the right marketing mix of social media vs. traditional tactics.
MarketingXLerator is here to help you with the research, strategy development and creation of an executable social media marketing plan.
Whether you want to learn how to build your own brand on social media or are a corporation striving to implement a social media strategy or campaign, please contact us via the form at the bottom of this page or via Twitter @NaThomson.

“@nathomson at MarketingXLerator has been an outstanding partner for our new marketing strategy. Phase 1 in full swing…more to come.”
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Natascha on a number of different events, most recently the 2012 SAP Social Media Week Social Media Day in Silicon Valley. Natascha has consistently been a delight to work with – pleasant, professional and efficient. Her execution was extremely organized and the content and editorial direction of the day itself were stellar. I’d absolutely work with Natascha again!”
“Natascha played a critical role in helping me successfully jump-start a blogging campaign within two weeks. She provided the introductions, insight, and encouragement that enabled me to meet the expectations she trusted me to deliver. She was available whenever I needed information and provided the feedback that helped me make critical decisions. Without her support and guidance, my effort would not have achieved the outcomes it generated. Thank you, Natascha.”
“Social Media Week is always a special time to recognize how social has changed our world. More importantly it’s great to see enterprise class companies embrace the impact of a consumer technology. Glad to see Natascha running the event as it was well designed and organized!”
“Natascha impressed through her vision and execution when organizing and hosting Social Media Day 2012 at SAP. The quality of sessions at speakers at the event was fantastic and the execution flawless.”
“Natascha, thank you again for organizing and running this massive project (Social Media Day) so we at SAP could gain the benefits of being associated with this event and with social media leadership. It was a huge job to corral the speakers, presenters, panelists, websites, video streaming, marketing, audience… and you delivered beautifully.”
“We have @nathomson to thank. I’ve been to a lot of events so it’s really clear when one is well done. Thank you”
