We are witnessing a increasing focus on social media as an essential channel for results-orientated digital marketing success. Success stories from paid social media campaigns constantly dominate the headlines. The problem? Many organisations don’t know where paid social media activity fits within their organisation, what each of the channels can offer and who is best to take control of these channels and strategise accordingly. With the social media advertising platforms developing and rolling out new features at break-neck pace, it’s hard to keep up! If you’re reading this and nodding along, then this is probably true for you!
