Because words are my language: Have you ever felt a single word emphasized you? This is the moment brands need for awareness during Social Media. You need to understand the customer, find the right words (does not mean a set of suiting words, it means having the tongue of your customer) and build a relationship. This is what my job looks like. My task is help Companies to work with Social Media in- and outside, motivate users (meaning employee or customer) to take part and build a strong relationship that manages purchase, longterm employment relationship or other aims target by the companies I work for. // Weil Worte meine Sprache sind: Haben Sie sich jemals von einem einzelnen Wort berührt gefühlt? Genau diesen Moment brauchen Marken, um die Aufmerksamkeit in den neuen Medien zu erhalten. Man muss die Zielgruppe verstehen, die richtigen Worte (was nicht bedeutet, dass man eine bestimmte Kombination schlagkräftiger Wörter braucht, sondern man muss die Sprache der Zielgruppe finden) und eine Beziehung aufbauen. So sieht meine Arbeit aus. Meine Aufgabe besteht darin Unternehmen dabei zu helfen, Social Media nach innen und außen einzusetzen, um Nutzer (dabei geht es um Mitarbeiter ebenso wie um Käufer) mithilfe einer starken Bindung zu Käufen, Austausch und langfristigen Arbeitsverhältnissen zu motivieren.
