Schaefer Marketing Solutions: We Help Businesses {grow}

Is social media marketing still a thing?

Social media marketing has been the hottest marketing concept for the last 10 years. Is it losing steam … or is it just taking off? Is social media marketing still a thing?

In this episode of the Marketing Companion podcast, Tom Webster and I look at the data and reveal new perspectives on where social media fits into today’s complex marketing mix.

I think you will especially love this episode. One of the more interesting perspectives: Tom discusses his ideas of how social media helps consumers sort stories. Quite fascinating stuff.

We also reveal a new premium service to sell fake followers — Mark and Tom’s Faux Followers — so you can become an influencer in record time! You won’t want to miss this!
