NEW YORK, April 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ProActive Capital, a strategic advisory and digital strategies firm today applauded the SEC's decision to embrace Social Media. On April 2, 2013, the SEC took a stance on social media that created shockwaves among public CEOs and shareholders; Regulation FD applies to social media and other emerging means of communication used by public companies the same way it applies to company websites. "This new stance certainly means that public companies will need to also embrace all of the benefits that social media brings," stated Jeff Ramson, founder and president of ProActive Capital. Jeff Ramson, capital markets advisory and social media strategies expert, with over 25 years of experience on Wall Street, further stated, "the SEC news is "incredibly exciting" for our company, Proactive Capital. Proactive Capital was founded in 2008 in New York City with a mission to merge traditional capital markets advisory with the blossoming digital era." The ProActive Integrated Strategic Messaging (PRISM) service was born due to Mr. Ramson's intuition that the world would someday wake up to the realization of the true benefits of capital markets social media in this modern world. It leverages social and professional media sites with key strategies that include:
Identifying who the company's key stakeholders are online
Creating original content and distributing for maximum exposure
Engaging with key stakeholders and thought leaders
"Our services enable clients to use a single, technology platform that can push out their corporate news and engage with the millions on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and many more. More recently, ProActive has been utilizing newer platforms such as StockR and BoardVote that both have growing investor interest. The Proactive Capital team understands the needs and responsibilities of publicly traded companies because we've managed them, worked for them, and have in-depth knowledge of the financial markets, and advising our clients on the proper way of interacting with the investment community. I truly believe that digital and social media is the way of the future and it is vindicating to see our regulators agree."
