Aug 15 2019 Brittany Leon Blog Social Media Strategy Serve Up Social Media Success When I moved into my house, the kitchen’s crowning glory was the chef’s stove. This is not the kind of appliance you use to just boil eggs or cook a frozen pizza—it has more burners and settings than I know what to do with! I tried to step up my cooking game, but it just wasn’t the same as having a chef at a restaurant serve up my favorite dish. I believe that social media has the same underrealized potential for marketers as the chef’s stove had for me when I moved into my new house. Here’s why: We’ve all read about the impact social media can have on a campaign. Most marketers have translated those basic insights into a cadence of paid and organic content that is published in the hopes of achieving campaign success. But even after you’ve incorporated Facebook into your strategies, it can be hard to determine if it’s being used to its fullest capacity. Enter the Managed Services team at Centro.
