With the advent of social media and the use of emerging technologies that now help drive marketing campaigns, companies that stay ‘invisible’ or under the radar on cyberspace are definitely at a disadvantage. More and more, as people (your current and potential customers) move online and into social networking sites, it is important — no, IMPERATIVE — that your company needs to be where they are, ready to provide information, answer their queries, as well as provide support in different situations. Being able to provide your valued customers with added insights that highlight the importance of your various products and services to their lives can spell the difference in terms of a longer-term relationship with them.


This is where we (Noemi Lardizabal-Dado and Jane T. Uymatiao) believe we will be of help in providing your organization with the insights, preparations, and programs based on a strategic plan that fully integrates the use of social media. I wrote more about how this shift to Speaking and Consulting will help sustain my passion for doing social media for social good. Jane writes about this new chapter in her life.

Here is a general background of the services Jane and I are offering:

We believe in providing each client with a tailored social media strategy – one that requires a thorough understanding of the industry in which the client operates, the nature of engagement required on social media, and the demographics and online behavior of its customers. For training programs and lectures, we provide anything that can be as short as half-day to 1-day lectures that you can integrate into your company’s personal development or staff training programs. On the other hand, we can also work with you to develop longer-term, more detailed and focused courses of action in the form of consultancy services that will address social media, branding, or other topics in an in-depth manner.
