How social drives business growth – and business decisions
Europe’s most influential businesses have a new way of doing business following the global economic downturn. And it’s called social media.
New research from LinkedIn and Join the Dots proves that decision-makers in large and medium-sized European businesses (those with annual revenues of £4 million or €5 million) see social media as fundamental to doing business –and as a crucial driver of growth. Social is used to acquire new customers, generate leads, deliver content to a range of different audiences and generate advocacy and word of mouth; but also to inform all manner of business decisions, to listen to market trends, to source talent and to deliver customer service. And it’s rated as highly effective by over two-thirds of decision makers in all of these areas.
