Social Media Marketing

Hi. I’m your Compassion internet communications specialist . I specialize in being especially excited about web stuff.
Do I have fun on occasion? You bet. Is most of it work? Always, and did I mention that saving kids from poverty is my commitment? No? Well, there you go.
Recently I was sent by Compassion to the Forrester’s Consumer Forum  which is a think-tank of an organization in the marketing industry.
Forrester speaks precisely about ways companies can target trends and future ideas for getting a product or organization into the eyes of the public through social media. 
Some serious marketing research takes place. Seriously.
I was there to learn from the experts about social networking techniques for the internet.
Now I see those wheels turning. Compassion’s trying to be trendy? Compassion looks at the future of the marketing industry? Compassion sees a child as a product?
Well, sort of.
What I discovered in the forum is that huge corporations are dishing out millions if not billions to give their products a pleasing experience that you can relate to.
A pleasing experience with toothpaste? A pleasing experience with credit cards?
How about the experience of sponsoring a child ?
I am proud to say that Compassion is doing  exactly what it should, from a social media perspective, to help children in poverty.
We are giving the world a true experience of a child sponsorship.
Compassion is changing lives.
Yes, the world is changing and we at Compassion are changing with it, and that’s a good move, right? That’s a healthy choice you can agree with, right?
