Research shows that Data-Driven Social Media publishing delivers a 91% increase in reach and a 26% increase in engagement.

Employee advocates are your brand’s best resource to expand existing marketing programs. In fact, content shared by employees on social networks receives 8x the engagement of content on a brand’s own channel.
By powering employees to experience, create and share authentic content, brands can increase social engagement, reach new customers, and drive more web traffic.
Hear DeShelia Spann, Digital Marketing Strategist at Eaton, share how Eaton is mobilizing their employees to promote marketing initiatives and share brand content.
A social business is an organization whose culture and systems encourage networks of people to create business value. Social businesses connect individuals, so they can rapidly share information, knowledge and ideas by having conversations and publishing informal content. They analyze social content from multiple channels and sources, in addition to structured data, to gain insights from both external and internal stakeholders. When those things happen, innovation and business execution rates increase, better decisions are made, and customers and employees are more engaged and satisfied. Social businesses enjoy lower operating costs, faster speed-to-market, improved customer and employee engagement, and increased profitability. Many organizations don’t fully appreciate the magnitude of the value creation potential of social business.
