Go Social…

When Write Ideas, Inc., was founded in 1992, we used to tout, “We get ink,” and clients loved seeing their name in newspapers and of course, on TV. But media has exploded in terms of opportunity in new – social – media, and word of mouth marketing has changed the promotions landscape. Smith is a social media guru and leverages these tactics to add a powerful viral marketing component to many of her clients’ campaigns and also consults companies on powerful, creative ways to reach the $2.4 trillion Moms’ Market.
