Here at Approach, we know the benefits of successfully managing engaging and interactive social media campaigns for our clients, across a variety of platforms. We enjoy connecting with different audiences and being creative with content for a range of B2C and B2B accounts.

An important aspect of creating winning content is to monitor your competitors’ accounts to stay ahead of the game. However tracking competitor engagement can take up a lot of time that you may not have!
