Description

People are talking about you and your business in social media - wouldn't it be great to find out what they're saying? I take a look at how to use basic social listening techniques to inform your social media and content marketing strategy, based on some of the work I've done for the City & Guilds Group. This is an edited version of my presentation from the social media measurement and management stage at Technology for Marketing and Advertising 2014 (25-26 February 2014, Earls Court, London).
