Social media is vital for TIP trailers
“Social media, as a marketing and communication channel, has become a vital part of TIP’s access to talent, customers and partners but also an excellent opportunity to tell ‘who we are and what we do’. In this way, we encourage employees to share TIP news among their personal network, which will increase the brand awareness on our products while also showing everyone why it is great to work for TIP”, says Marc.
“We believe that our strongest asset in the brand community are our employees, especially since they are in day-to-day contact with our customers, and have accumulated knowledge about our business which goes way beyond what we are able to do from a corporate point of view”, Marc elaborates.
“With TIP Trailer’s thousands of skilled employees, it is vital to ensure they are involved in sharing TIP’s story to our customers, partners and of course future employees”
