The great news for publishers and media companies is that the disruptions caused by social media are not competence destroying. On the contrary, they are competence enhancing.
The key to success lies in either building new organizational and technological competences in social media or finding a partner that specializes in social media. We partner with publishers and media companies to help them focus on their core business and competences, while creating new business and competences in social media.
Whether it is about enhancing your publishing platform or socially enabling it? Whether it is about providing your traditional media audience with a new media outlet? Whether it is about tapping into hundreds of millions of active social media users? Whatever the situation is we help publishers and media meet all social media challenges in a predictable, manageable, and measureable way.
The power of social networks has increased far more than merely having a control over an install base of hundreds of millions of active users, to what some refer to as a "social operating system". Social networking is a phenomenon that has, forever, changed the way people connect and socialize.
Hundreds of millions of users now spend more time on social networks than on television or telephony. Much of mobile telephony activity is social. Messaging activity on inbuilt messaging systems within social networks has surpassed that on emails or mobile text messaging. Instant messaging is under threat, as social networks enable instant messaging features.
Interestingly these social networks are becoming open to all Internet Businesses that wish to get an access to millions of digital citizens and social natives. These citizens and natives are potential customers / consumers that are virtually resident on these social networks.
Advertisers have had a hard time building competences in new technologies and methodologies ever since the advent of communication infrastructure, platforms and applications; rocks, roads, railroads, news paper, magazine, TV, telephony, web, email, search, mobile, social, et cetera.
More content was made available or published in the current decade than the same produced and consumed in the history of mankind. Consumers have more influence in building a brand’s equity than ever before. Brand marketers and ad agencies are in a need of an ability to harness the power of social media. Investing into building social media strategy and technology competence and resource base is not a cost-effective solution. It is by far a daunting task. We at Social Shore help marketers and advertisers build competences in social media strategy, technology, services and solutions.
We help global brands envision social media as an indispensible, critical and manageable business process. Disruptions led by the so called "new new media" have created opportunities for brands to connect with consumers in ways that were not possible before.
Engaging consumers in a dialogue provides opportunities to enhance product and service offerings. It creates unthinkable new possibilities of product differentiation, innovation and future growth. In short, it increases the overall brand equity. This new era of “connectedness” calls for global brands to capitalize on the opportunities made possible by disruptive social innovations.
