"Social media is a low-cost opportunity for many of these businesses to position themselves as thought leaders in the industry," Will Gibney, vice president of sales and marketing for eCoast, said. "These are great tools for small and medium businesses to extend their reach in the marketplace."

Social media has become a great leveler when it comes to extending a company's brand awareness, allowing even the smallest company to successfully compete in the marketplace. It can also enhance prospect engagement and intelligence gathering. eCoast's social media experts want to help resellers put the right tools and procedures in place to succeed.

eCoast recognizes the needs of its clients who, like many businesses, have a desire to participate in social media yet are challenged by limited resources. eCoast created the Social Media Extreme Makeover contest to bring awareness to one of eCoast's fastest growing services, social media consulting and on-boarding. eCoast would rather give back to its clients than spend dollars on traditional advertising. By helping VARs with their social media needs, our clients are helping eCoast showcase its capabilities in the channel community!
