Alongside her BBC role Kate has written a guide for SMEs, start-ups and entrepreneurs who want to get ahead online - Working The Cloud. In presentations she reveals that consumers are five times more likely to buy on social recommendation than conventional marketing, so how do you influence the influencers? Kate sets out a strategy: develop content that speaks to bloggers, those you follow and advocates within your own organisation. Then fully engage.
