Michele Neylon of Blacknight explains “We are ecstatic to be in the finals for four Irish Social Media Awards this year. We put a lot of care into our social media accounts and believe deeply in the importance of making a quality connection with our customers. I get teased a lot for the amount of time I spend on Twitter, Facebook and our blog but it clearly pays off.”
In 2011, Blacknight won the award for Best Business Twitter Account for Sales and Marketing at the inaugural Irish Social Media Awards.
Neylon advises: “It is no longer enough for businesses to simply have social media accounts. You have to put the heart of your business into connecting with your customers. Blacknight has always prioritised our relationship to our customers and have keep a constant dialog going and it has become an integral part of our business.”
Blacknight were early adopters of social media, using Twitter and Facebook long before it became an integral way for businesses to connect with customers. Blacknight have won several awards for use of social media, including awards for the prolific and sometimes irreverent Blacknight Blog.
