Comit’s 2016: A Year in Review
Here at Comit, we’re in slight disbelief that the year has come to a close already. It seems like only yesterday that we were flicking through our 2016 year planner, thinking how far-off even February seemed, let alone December. But with so much happening in the technology world, it’s not surprising that 2016 was a busy – and great – one for us. In fact, it has been our most successful business year date. To give you an idea of what we have been up to (and to jog our own memories), here is a little taste of what the Comit team was up to in 2016.
In previous editions of our B2B Social Media Masterclass series we looked at how businesses can maximise their B2B profiles through LinkedIn and Twitter. However, businesses also need to generate interesting, original content that can be pushed out through those social media networks and encourage engagement. One of the best ways to do this and reach your target audience is through a blog.
Welcome to the second instalment of our B2B social media masterclass. In our previous blog we looked at leveraging Twitter, which has been adapted by businesses for B2B, marketing and networking purposes.
In our ‘Masterclass’ series, we will look at how specific social media channels can be of great benefit to your organisation. Firstly, we will offer ten tips on how to leverage Twitter effectively.
It’s hard to believe that Social Media has played a daily part in our lives for over a decade. But, is social media marketing really an effective form of tech PR for businesses and worthy of further investment?
How much do you allocate to your PR and content marketing budget? A study by Google and CEB, B2B Digital Evolution, shows us that the B2B world has changed – because buyer behaviour has changed. The report found that buyers will self-serve 57% of the sales process before engaging with sales. They want to engage with sellers on their terms and at a time of their choosing.
Ireland is experiencing a tech and digital explosion. New tech start-ups are popping up every day, while increasingly, large multinationals are choosing Ireland as their European hub. It’s a fascinating time and an exciting place to be—what ambitious PR professional looking to build a career wouldn't want to be a part of that?
At Comit, we’re lucky to be able to say that we are right there in the middle of it. From multinational giants to Irish-born start-ups, through tech PR and marketing, we help clients grow and pride ourselves on being a part of their success stories. It is witnessing that success that drives the Comit team.
Know your client.Each client is different and each client is different in their very own way. One might love an idea for a photoshoot that takes place on a mountain-top with an elephant’s trunk holding their logo while acrobats backflip in the foreground, while another client may quickly backflip away from that same idea. The key is to get to know your client.
Interns, assemble. Starting off your career as an intern won’t be a month-long montage of you picking up dry-cleaning, doing coffee runs or covered in paper-cuts after endless piles of shredding. The role of an intern has evolved. Businesses are competing with one another to hire the best graduates to invest their time and training in. Here are some tips to help you secure the PR internship you’ve always wanted.
