What is Social Momentum?


In the latest episode of our Brand Storytelling podcast, we discuss why brands are using geo-targeting to communicate with their audience on a personal, one-on-one level. With 86% of all Aussies now owning a smartphone, and more than half (56%) owning three or more devices, we are more connected than ever; so why wouldn’t brands adapt to making the most of this readily available information.

We were fortunate enough to sit down with Shama Hyder, the leading strategist on building marketing momentum in the digital age; and she talks us through the five principles: Agility through analytics, Customer focus, Integration, Content curation, and Cross-pollination. 

Newsmodo CEO Rakhal Ebeli discuss how targeted marketing and focusing directly on a customer type, rather than everyone all at once; has seen staggering results in terms of audience engagement and return on investment.
