Buy in for your social media efforts is essential to realizing success

Category : Social Media

The best ideas in social media usage for businesses have little hope of being successful if there isn’t buy in from the leaders of that organization. Over at JeffBullas.com, he takes a look at the CEO and Social Media.

Though social media has the potential to be an extremely powerful set of tools for businesses, getting buy in to those efforts is essential to realizing the success they are seeking.
