Nowadays, does your company have a real brand image if it’s not on social networks? It’s impossible not to admit that social networks are essential to showcase brands, products, services and even ideas.

As customers’ presence in social media grows, deploying an effective communication strategy remains a major challenge for organizations looking to create a real difference for their business.

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube, account manager, graphic designer, videos and content strategy are all elements that contribute to the communication strategy. However, you still need to have effective tools.

Cofinia is already a big fan of the various Zoho apps, so we opted for the Zoho Social app to help us plan and manage our social networks efficiently.
