  • Watch and learn behaviour, then understand the technology before adopting it.
  • Work with the communications team to drive branding, content, media and commercialisation through business leads.

  • The future is social. Not only will roles evolve but everything will develop and it is important to be focused on being an agent of change.
  • Be a Behaviourist / Business Owner / Technologist.
  • A well-rounded approach would include activity in community management, content strategy & distribution, analytics and insights.
  • It is important to listen, understand goals and objectives, provide strategy and frameworks, pilot, analyse and scale.
  • Aim to understand the psychology of a person and what you can give them as a social media specialist
  • Social CRM is about relationships and social psychology which is crucial to understanding the audience and knowing why people would be willing to interact with brands.
  • Social CRM is also about social relationships so you need to understand interactions and the values you can add to people’s lives.
  • Become a brand that ‘is’ social rather than a brand that ‘does’ social.
  • Listening is hearing with insights. Don’t just hear but listen and connect.
  • Digital marketing rocketed from 8% to 24% over the past 3 years in Singapore and Brandcast Media are in the process of setting up an office in Singapore.
