MUMBAI: 15 experts over five days will give an insight to businesses on the new tool of communication: social media. Conducted by Socialsamosa.com starting 21 October, the social media mentoring session aims at aiding start-up companies with an opportunity to enjoy a private 30 minute session with a social media expert from within the industry.
With social media transforming into serious business and a platform to engage and retain customers along with being cost effective, small business entrepreneurs are adopting it instantly. The social media mentoring session will help companies in finding answers to the ever changing and evolving platform.
Speaking on the event Socialsamosa.com co-founder Aditya Gupta said, “Start-ups are often overwhelmed with the growing number of social platforms and fail to strategise and create power packed campaigns that can lead to fulfillment of crucial business goals. For instance, Myntra derives a good amount of its web traffic through social media and likewise e-commerce start-ups can boost their footprints too. To facilitate this process we have initiated private mentoring sessions which I believe can truly build social media marketing direction for any start-up brand.”
Participating companies can choose slots between 11 am and 3 pm during the five days of the session. 45 start-ups can choose a slot and a speaker depending on the area of expertise and business strengths. So for those interested in understanding how listening, monitoring or analysing social conversations can help their business, can book a slot with someone working with analytics tool/platform.
Socialsamosa.com co-founder Ankita Gaba added, “We realise that there is a need within the start-up ecology to understand and acquire a thorough understanding of social platforms and hence we have organised this knowledge sharing activity through Social Samosa school, our sub-portal. The private hangout will ensure a healthy interaction through a two way knowledge sharing and building exercise. We did a twangout [combination of live Google hangout and tweets] with Harshil Karia on how startups can use social media. But that was one to many, one expert answering multiple questions of multiple start-ups. This time we have gone beyond the general sharing of knowledge and moved to business specific mentoring, ensuring a highly personalised brand experience.”
