Great to say I’ve got a new (additional!) role – I’ve just been appointed as the Chartered Institute of Marketing South West Region’s Social Media Ambassador. The CIM’s ambassador programme has been established for several years and our main role is to improve engagement and develop partnerships with members and businesses across the south west peninsula. The ambassadors are a network of Chartered Marketers and Fellows of the institute (and who are members of the regional board) who volunteer their time to share marketing information, advice and knowledge for our specific sector, so with my experience of using social media from both the marketer’s and the customer’s perspectives for some years now, I’ll be helping to spread the word as to how valuable social media is for business.
Of course you can still engage with me on Twitter via @DangerousMkting but I’ll also be part of a team supporting the CIM South West on @CIM_SW and our Linked-In group. We’ll be spreading the word about the great CIM events that are going on, as well as providing the latest news from the world of marketing. We’ll also be hosting some tweet forums where you can join in to discuss the big marketing topics of the day! You can also access what the CIM does in the south west at our new website where you’ll find loads of information about marketing, including events, news and our quarterly newsletters.
