As SimplySocial continues its growth as a global company with roots spanning from Romania to Alaska, we are proud to announce our new distribution relationship with Dittman Research and Communications. Founded in 1969, Dittman is one of the nation’s oldest and most successful opinion and market research firms. With a laser focus on accuracy and the right blend of art and science – they deliver winning strategies for businesses, organizations, and campaigns.
SimplySocial CEO Tyler Arnold says, “We are thrilled that such an established Alaskan brand is as excited about social media as we are.”
Dittman owner Matt Larkin saw a great opportunity to collaborate with SimplySocial, recognizing the company was doing many creative things in areas in which he was also interested.
Organizations are now recognizing the importance of establishing themselves on social media, but most do not know where to start or how to maintain this presence. Larkin’s face lights up as he talks about Dittman’s new venture in this industry. “Over the past two years we’ve been hearing from our clients that they need help in this area and we are happy to now provide a solution for them. Creating consistent and relevant content is the biggest problem most express when describing their challenges with social media. This is why SimplySocial is such a great company to partner with,” says Larkin.
There are a lot of opinions being expressed on social media. By getting involved in these conversation and having a platform to control and monitor them, Dittman will have a deeper understanding of how their clients brands are being talked about online. “Right now we are focusing on assisting our clients with building a social media presence. Once done, we can monitor how people are talking about their brands.” With this information, Larkin says, they will be able to better assist clients with brand messaging.
Arnold Says, “We see potential for a whole new area of communications technologies that we’re just beginning to scratch the surface of. With Dittmans’ knowledge of data and established relationships around the state we are looking forward to bringing a new era of accountability to social media that hasn’t really yet existed.”
SimplySocial is thrilled to have Dittman on board and we look forward to collaborating together on future projects moving forward in 2013 and beyond.
