You want them to work together to increase brand awareness and sell your product or service. But I like to think of word synergy in a naive manner. If you want to compose synergy then your social environment and social media should have, get this, similar energy = synergy. Your social media should reflect the feel, atmosphere, and personality of the environment your customer would be walking in to. It creates a wholesome branding. Here are two ways to implement synergy.

Marketers spent $10.10 billion on social network advertising in 2015 and they will spend even more in 2016. By 2017, digital advertising budgets are predicted to surpass television budgets. Why? Because it’s the best way to know who your consumers really are AND the best avenue to get your message in front of them in a format that they are accustomed to digesting.
