“After the workshop I checked my team members' LinkedIn and Twitter accounts making sure all accounts are aligned with Namos' corporate identity. Next to using Hashtagify for all our social media campaigns, I have enforced the importance of blogging. My team now takes turns to write blog posts after every event. They are published on our company website and shared on social media, which increases backlinks and views on our website. Thanks to the Orca Social workshop our clients are now able to see how we’ve grown as a company with a consistent brand for Namos across all social media.” Tia Maletta, Marketing Assistant at Namos Solutions Ltd.
