Social INK | One Minute Briefs AMA Highlights

On Monday 29th October 2018, Social INK CEO, Chris Bruno, was joined by Nick Entwistle, Founder of One Minute Briefs and Creative Director of the Bank of Creativity, for a live AMA on the Social INK Facebook page.

They had a lively debate about Creativity and Social Media Marketing, drawing upon their respective experiences in the world of social media, digital marketing, and advertising to share their observations on the current state of advertising, gamification of social media and community building, before opening up the floor to answer questions sent in by the audience.

We’re huge fans of AMA sessions at Social INK. If you need a reminder of why they are a valuable asset to any business, check out our blog post here:
