Companies wanting social media consulting which is both social media savvy and at the same time strongly focused on supporting enterprise objectives can now call on a new global group, Social Business Consulting Group (Sobizco).
Sobizco has been set up by a group of 17 social media strategists from the US, Europe, and the Asia Pacific region. All founding partners and an additional 20 social media consultants practice a unified methodology, as taught by the Social Media Academy. (I posted a few weeks ago about my being a student again, with the Academy.)
The Social Business Consulting Group provides social media audits, strategy development, engagement planning, solution implementation and strategy execution services.
It’s one thing for a small firm to develop and implement a social media strategy, and even on a small scale there can be challenges, such as in terms of skill sets, organizational culture, time management issues, budget and accountability. At the enterprise level the challenges can be much more daunting.
As Sobizco co-founder Axel Schultze says, “Once an executive decides to transform their organization into a more engaging company, attracting more customers through advocacy and user-generated content, those leaders are quickly challenged to develop a strategy that works not only for hundreds of managers and thousands of employees, but also for possibly millions of customers.”
Which is where Axel sees Sobizco coming in, with its unified, business-focused methodology and its global group of consultants.
The group is already working with leading companies, including SAP, EMC, Qwest and Oracle.
