Social Media Services in Gibraltar
“Marketing is no longer about the stuff that you
make but about the stories that you tell.”
Social media is one of the most influential elements of digital marketing. It started out primarily as a tool to reach consumers and as a means of lead generation and creating brand awareness. But this has shifted and now customer experience is one of its main objectives. This means we need to keep a close eye on current trends in social media marketing, watch what our clients’ competitors are doing and develop strategies that maximise results. We have moved from a period in which static images were sufficient to create a strong message to one in which video content is the major driving force of social media campaigns. MINT can help with every aspect of a social media campaign and on the multiple platforms available, using the ones most suited to your business.
