Social Media Marketing Management

While a complete social media strategy would include the below activities, industrial marketing allows for a streamlining of the process. The use of social media in an industrial marketing context tends to be limited to showcasing the latest projects, awards, employment opportunities, and partnerships. In many cases, even showing the latest projects can be a challenge because the end client for a project, a land developer, for example, may not permit it.
