Why Women Need to be a part of Digital Teams

November 14th, 2013  |  No Comments


So I read this article today from NBC News, and it got me to thinking. Jivaldi has been in the Digital game for a long time and we come across many personalities as we navigate projects and client relations. In the end, our goal is to naturally serve the clients’ needs and interests but also influence the client in a way that will benefit them, perhaps steer them in a direction that they weren’t planning on. It is clear to me that women are an essential ingredient for making this happen and building a good digital marketing team.

Twitter versus Facebook ::

Tech Crunch recently posted a Facebook fan page study by Sysomos that revealed 77 percent of fan pages have fewer than 1,000 fans. Within this study ‘Facebook fan pages tend to be updated only once every 16 days.’

TechCrunch went on to say, “On Twitter, you follow someone because you want to hear what they have to say. On Facebook, you fan them just to show your support or affinity. Too often, it’s a throwaway gesture.”

Though most are still just, ‘oh, yeah..sure, i’ll become a fan’, with little interactiion after that, things are a changin’.
