About Atlas Outsourcing
In a recent article, Clayman Marketing Communications have discussed the prospect of social media experiencing a ‘boom’ and a ‘bust’. Businesses, marketers and consumers alike are all aware of the boom ‘social media’ has taken in recent years; with more and more people getting online each year, and becoming more familiar with not just one, but multiple digital platforms. What people might not be so aware of is the ‘bust’ social media could experience in the near future. This doesn’t necessarily mean that social media sites like Facebook or Twitter will completely, disappear, more the glossy reputations these sites have will simply tarnish. To conclude, companies that have solely depended on the ‘social media revolution’ will experience a tough transition. It is with this knowledge that Atlas Outsourcing has chosen to use direct marketing techniques, because it is a time-less form of marketing.
