My marketing objective

I am passionate about guiding a company through the process of defining their brand and position, developing their overall look and feel, then creating their above and below the line presence focusing on an effective medium that connects with their target audience.

My particular interest is in Social Media Marketing, the new buzz word and medium through which brands engage with online communities to increase brand awareness and build new business relationships. Although as Marketeers we should not dictate the medium through which we communicate, Social media marketing is growing exponentially and moving to quick, dynamic and real-time type spaces where the brand becomes tangible for the person out there.
