Proving the value of social media to the C suite

Date: Sep 19, 2013

For many companies, the jury is still out on the value of social tools. Persuading executives to invest budget and human resources in social media strategies can be a tough sell.

Robin Carey, CEO of Social Media Today, talked with SearchContentManagement  to highlight some of the key themes of the show.
