Published on .

Washington, D.C.—Marketers believe social media is an effective tool and use it themselves, but their commitment to investing in social marketing lags, according to a study from the Software & Information Industry Association. According to SIIA's “Marketing in Today's Economy” study, 90% of marketers use social media, and three-quarters believe it has a positive impact on their business.

The online survey was conducted during the fourth quarter of 2011, garnering 106 respondents.
