Consumers trust each other the most

Social media rapidly gaining SERP Predominance and are now intertwined.

You no longer own your brand. Your brand is a conversation.

What is below the waterline of this iceberg?

You are losing control.

How do we engage this into a social media strategy.

Go across all and many forms.

It’s amazing how the conversation leads will occur.

Conversation mining provides many, many benefits.
