Modus Operandi Announces First Social Media Private Talks Session

What we learned from Social Media Management and Marketing in 2012, will just be good for the bin, at least for most of it. 2013 marks the start of a new era in Social Media as a Marketing discipline. We will need to learn how to anticipate and how to plan Online Marketing Campaigns with significant headroom.

Session ONE – Learning about Social Media Shifts in 2013 – Feb. 2013


Social Media Private Talks are Speaking Sessions where only 22 privileged CEOs, Marketing and Communication executives will be invited to take knowledge of the latest development and trends in the world of Social Media. We will be talking about ways to deal with them and how to apply the fundamentals thereof, in our local Mauritian context.

Why are they limited to 22 professionals?

We, at Modus Operandi Mauritius, want to start a Social Media Leadership circle, where top Marketing and Communication Executives will be invited to reflect, share, develop and act on the Social Media we want for Mauritius. This is why we are starting with a limited number of attendees. We believe that this should start with knowledge intakes.

We intend, with our 8 sessions this year, to achieve the setup of the nucleus of what can become an authority in Social Media locally and regionally.


Fully understanding how Social Media impacts the Brand and by extension the Marketing or PR operations, is the key to successful ROI-based campaigns. Marketing basics are being challenged every now and then, with each and every tweak or change that Social Media undergoes. As of today, and by periodic increment, Social Media is taking more and more significant importance in the Marketing mix. Campaigns are now being built from the customers’ Social behavior perspective rather than from the Product or Brand perspective.


g3295Social Media Marketing is still in its infancy and like a child, this discipline is developing at a rather hard-to-follow fast pace. In fact we will need to anticipate, apprehend the changes and shifts that will operate during 2013 and beyond.

For this first Social Media Private Talks Session, we will talk about the novelties that will direct moves for Social Media Marketeers and for Marketing campaigns. The Social Media Private talks will help adjust Marketing Mixes.

  1. We will focus on the newly announced Graph Search by Facebook,
  2. We will see how Edgerank and Negative Feedback will affect brand and product visibility on Social platforms.
  3. We will talk about the bigger place that the SOLOMO concept will take as we grow towards 2015
  4. we will discuss about changes that will alter Email Marketing, Online Lead management and the 4 Ps paradigm.
  5. Last be not least, we will see how Economic and Commercial warfare has moved onto the Social Media field to use e-reputation as a primary objective.
