Relationship > Marketing
“Building relationship is more important than Marketing. The use of social media is now one of the most (if not the most) critical way to reach out and build relationships with your targeted community as well as your existing customers” he quoted.
Following the talk, a panel discussion was conducted. Participants were enthusiastic and asked many thought-provoking questions.
SNEF hopes to partner with ICDL Asia for more of such engaging sessions to promote ICDL’s Digital Marketing and other modules in future.
