A bag of digital insights from Virtuosa

As many of us forget about our New Year's resolutions made so vehemently last month, yes… can you believe it is already the end of February…the one area you can be assured of that is not forgotten is social media and the impact that it is having on the communications industry. Brands are listening, testing and starting to understand that the social platforms provide a complex but great CRM tool and if a well-planned strategy that shows sustainability, is implemented there can be much success. Those who are still using social for campaign bursts will soon learn that this does not make for long term client relationships and prolongs the acquisition phase and costs to a Brand.
Our new-look newsletter is jam-packed with articles sharing more on this subject, we encourage you to share your comments to the articles on our blog.
