You Don't Need A "Social Marketing" Strategy

December 27, 2019


Why Read This Report

Most marketers use social media, but few can quantify its value. In this report, we show how brands use social tactics to achieve marketing goals across the customer lifecycle and how they use social insights to improve the rest of their marketing campaigns. But social media can offer brands far more than just marketing value — so we also explore how social technology helps companies transform for customer obsession. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.
