Is your social media strategy up to scratch?
Did you know that around half of all businesses in the UK have a shortage of social media skills within their organisation? That’s according to new research published by The Chartered Institute of Marketing.

Towards the end of last year, around 1,500 marketers took part in the Institute’
s online survey for the first wave of their Social Media Benchmark research. The six-monthly study explores the role, value and potential of social media in business. And in the second wave of the study released in June 2012, it was found that 43% of companies do not employ people with good enough skills in this area. And that 32% of marketers feel that their senior managers don’t fully understand the benefits of social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook.
