It is now a primary channel for customer and market communications.  Spredfast SCRM, a software as a service (SaaS) solution, was first introduced in 2010 – combining listening, publishing, managing and measuring social activity all from one system for the first time.

And don’t get them started on “reputation management.” If you build quality relationships, a stellar reputation follows — and stands on its own. Andy McGinnis Public Relations help you build quality relationships. Forget B2B, B2C, B2G or even B-to-the-E. They connect you to those most important to you. Whomever. Wherever. And when they’re listening. Their practice is built on the fundamentals of public relations, but what sets them apart is how they make it work. In the real world.
