7 Ways to Boost Investor Relations with Social Media
Standards & Expectations
- The US institutional and retail investor market is well established with high information requirements and expectations of timeliness, accuracy and professionalism
- It is critical for management of a public company to be prepared for the expectations of the market—they carry the responsibilities to fulfill Wall Street standards and expectations on any exchange
- Failure to prepare management with appropriate corporate documentation, presentations, press releases and other communications will translate to lack of analyst and buy-side support
- Advanced preparation mitigates against lack of market support and grooms management for investor interaction
By focusing on the development of a company’s identity and the communication of strategic vision we build awareness, confidence and shareholder value. Our programs deliver measurable results across a wide variety of new, social and professional media platforms.
We’ve developed an integrated investor relations network leveraging progressive communication strategies integrated with social media to advance awareness, promote clarity and protect reputations.
