What role does social media play in your day-to-day routine? Professional and personal.
Personally social media has allowed me to reconnect with old friends as over the years distance has limited direct contact. It is also essential for me to keep in touch with my “young” friends – which could be loosely translated to spying!
Social Media is also integral in my professional development which enables to to better service my clients.
How did you get into the social media business?
After completing my business studies I was looking for another challenge to get my teeth into that would utilise all of skills and give me the reward for effort. SMBB is cutting edge and an opportunity I couldn’t pass up.
What are you most optimistic about for social media in the next 12 months?
That it will no longer be viewed as just for the young ones or fearful for the oldies but it will play a positive role in all people’s lives – personal and professional.
