FITIS Successfully organized the First Industry Training program on Social Media on 13th May 2015 at the Galadari Hotel. In today’s digital world billions of conversations take place every day. Some of them about your organization, firm, practice or institution. Social Media can provide a global platform at relatively low cost and yet it is often personal, intimate and immediate… providing considerable opportunities and challenges for anyone trying to compete in an already difficult economic environment.

An appreciation of the opportunities offered by Social Media and the ways in which Social Media can be leveraged to complement your other online and offline marketing communications activity is vital for achieving and exceeding targets, being heard in all the noise and clutter of the multi-media age and working efficiently.

Attended by more than 60 professionals in the Higher Management Level of various Industries, the four-hour training program highlighted the Basics and higher level usages of Social Media in improving businesses.

The Speaker was the highly skilled Mr. Amitha Amarasinghe, who has more than 10 years’ experience in eMarketing, eCommerce, Social Media Marketing and performance marketing. EOTA Solutions was the Main Sponsor of this Event.
