Caribbean Social Media Strategy

A few months after moving to Toronto, I went to a networking event for entrepreneurs. I met some fantastic people, some of whom I am still in contact with today. I remember speaking to a business coach at that event; we talked about my business aspirations. I told her I wanted to work with Caribbean entrepreneurs; I felt a need to help them, I felt the Caribbean was getting left behind where Social Media was concerned. The advice I got was, don’t do it, Caribbean entrepreneurs are not a good market if you want to make money.

I have always felt that Caribbean entrepreneurs weren’t making enough use of Social Media, I have written some articles about how they can take full advantage of the many opportunities social media offers for their businesses but always felt like I can do more.

That research got me interested in social media research in general.

David L Martin

Having lived in North America for 10 out of the last 14 years and being a digital media enthusiast, I have always had a fascination with animation.
