Social-Search-HangoutWould you choose to allocate budget for Social or for Search? Or both? It’s a dilemma which many companies run into these days. But can you really make a choice? Or are social and search (and other channels) connected like never before?

These dilemma’s were discussed in another State of Digital Hangout. In this hangout several State of Digital experts like Sarah Bradley, Neil Walker, Jackie Hole and Bas van den Beld discussed the importance and the connection of the both.
