Purplefish MD talks social media on ITV

Purplefish MD, Joanna Randall was interviewed recently on ITV discussing the power of social media to help people in need.

Ben Carter’s #cupforben social media appeal helped find him his favourite drinking cup and prompted the company that had stopped producing it to launch a limited edition run.

Jo’s interview includes the following observations:

  • People-driven stories that become popular on social media now drive the wider news agenda
  • The best companies let people feedback to them honestly and openly, good or bad, via social media
  • We decide which brands we want to engage with if they can show they speak our language and understand our daily lives
  • Companies that go one step further in responding to customer needs or feedback on social media can reap the benefits of widespread media coverage
