About Dede

My name is Dede Watson and social media strategy is my passion. Based in the Dallas area, I work with brands from all over the country to build their online marketing strategy with an emphasis in social media. I’ve had the honor of being named a Forbes Top 50 Social Media Power Influencer in 2012 and 2013. I have built my career by maximizing every working hour, and I hope to help other business owners how to do the same by harnessing the power of social media to grow a customer base.

Communication is a three-part formula: message, medium, and reception. Even when a brand fine-tunes their message to perfection, misuse of the medium can lead to poor reception. How do you convey integrity in a tweet? How to you build a strong reputation of customer service through online media? These are questions excite me, and my goal is to teach brands to effectively communicate their passion and dedication to their consumers from message to reception.

Social media is such a powerful tool for business growth, brand recognition, and reputation management. It has never been easier to build relationships directly with your consumer, and I hope to shepherd businesses new to the social media game through this new frontier.

I work with multiple platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, Youtube, and Instagram. My favorite platform thus far is Twitter, due to its flexibility and potential for great, authentic one-on-one interaction, but the game is changing all the time and you never know when a developer is going to expand the technology to better suit the needs of businesses.
