Just who will be managing your social media?
There are a few of us in the department, and we all like to brag about our experience – one of us even wrote a book about it. The commonality between the group is we all love technology and seeing what we can do with it and who we can share it with. If you want your toaster to pop popcorn while tweeting, we are the people that want to figure it out with you. To us, there is no square peg that cannot fit in a round hole.
Some of our group’s notable achievements: maintained blogs, social communities, building one of the largest online advertising networks in the mid 90′s, developed visually stunning facebook fan pages, building facebook apps used by actual people, forums and websites, managed marketing strategies used to sell several million dollars worth of homes and cars, created web services that are used by thousands to do random things such as checking out at a shopping cart, setting a wake-up call, scheduling employees, photo sharing, scheduling events, and creating personalized niche social communities.
Talk to us, we would love to drop names.
