Social Media for the Maritime Industry
Phone: +49 40 9999 698 - 82
Whether you’re looking for jobs, products, services and information or interacting with others – digital media is becoming ever more dominant and important. Demographic developments and the competition to attract highly skilled young talent mean the maritime industry has to be digitally accessible and active. Companies, organisations and authorities that are visible online facilitate access for their target groups, attract young talent and generate valuable potential.
The digital transformation is central to securing Germany’s competitiveness as a maritime business location. This also applies to maritime stakeholders, who need to address changing usage behaviour and the use of digital and social media.
Why is social media important?
Social media enables you to enter into dialogue with (new) target groups and position your organisation as an attractive employer and forward-looking business contact. Social media platforms offer the opportunity to quickly share information and actively engage in discussions. People trust people and buy from people. Communication via social media is a kind of social interaction whose success depends on authenticity and approachability.
