LinkedIn Group: Innovation in RTP Speaker Series [visit]


Many companies have embraced the Internet and have aggressive digital initiatives but they don’t realize the impact user centered web processes can have on an overall strategy. When embraced and properly executed, the web strategy can become your corporate strategy and is core to the enterprise. Beyond the obvious influences on mobile, social media, and other web based initiatives, its effects can have significant impact on brand and your entire communications and technology strategy right down to customer service. You cannot underestimate the experiential power of the web and how social engagement has changed the face of business strategy. The fact is traditional positioning and marketing approaches are not the answer anymore and embracing the web as the new center of your corporate marketing and customer engagement strategy holds more answers than many realize.
