Dachis Group is the largest social media consultancy in the world, according to VentureBeat.
The company, which has an office in New York, is planning to grow even more. Dachis Group just raised $30 million.
Dachis Group sells research and software that helps companies manage their social media presence using something it calls “social business design.”
“By redesigning customer participation, workforce collaboration, and business partner optimization from the perspective of the four core archetypes of Ecosystem, Hivemind, Dynamic Signal, and Metafilter, a company will increase value from its business activities,” the site says. Sounds like a plan!
Dachis was founded in Silicon Valley by social media guru Jeff Dachis, former CEO of Razorfish, another social media consultancy that was quite successful despite its resemblence to WhatsTheFuckIsMySocialMediaStrategy.com.
Dachis Group’s clients have included Coca Cola, BP, Pabst Blue Ribbon and a company you wouldn’t think needs help in this area–Foursquare.
