This was my presentation yesterday at the Social Media World Forum in Singapore.
Despite research that ‘proves’ “local pages perform much better than global ones”, the reality is that the performance of any social media presence depends entirely on what you are trying to achieve.
There’s also the critical issue of whether you can afford to set up presences in each of your brand’s locations.
My advice is always to do what’s best for your audience, in the context of your brand and its objectives.
Doing so requires a solid understanding of what that audience uses social media for, what they hope to gain from a relationship with your brand, and how they’d like to get it.
That requires some careful strategic planning.
This presentation asks many of the important questions that will help you start that strategy, and offers some examples of different approaches to implementing it too.
I’d love to hear your thoughts and comments.
