The Microsoft Advertising Community team has been engaging with our customers online through social media marketing for nearly five years.
Ever since Microsoft Advertising adCenter was launched into beta back in 2005, the team has been supporting advertisers all over the world through the Microsoft Advertising Community site by blogging, answering questions in our forums, and disseminating news, tips, tricks and best practices more recently on Twitter @Microsoft adCenter and @MSAdvertising, and through our Facebook page.
With so many digital marketers using social networks and online applications to gather information, it made a lot of sense for us to invest in providing the very best insight into our products and services via the web.
A driving force at many industry events, the team also spends many hours every year at conferences, bringing sessions alive through social media for our fans and followers who may not have been able to attend.
Increasingly being asked to tell our story and talk of our experiences, our team has written a white paper to share our thoughts. In it, we map our journey over the years, demonstrating the thought processes behind our evolution and some practicable ideas of how to get the very best from social media marketing and your businesses presence on the web.
