Consulting

Having a successful social media presence for your business or brand is much more than just the technology of social networking software. Success is about building engagement and maintaining interaction with your client-base, and these involve expertise in psychology and sociology. Our ‘social success’ consultant team has a combined 50 years of experience in psychology and social engagement to bear on whatever project you have planned.

This is what differentiates Sparta from vendors selling out-of-the-box software.

We’ll help you every step of the way: from developing a customized strategy to monitoring engagement to analyzing the data our software collects. We were applying prinicples of game design to social networks long before the word gamification hit the streets, and we know it is more than adding widgets or leaderboards to your site. Our experts will be listening specifically and deeply to your marketers, and deliver creative solutions to you that are as unique as your business.
