The purpose of this study was to investigate how companies have linked their corporatestrategy with their digital- and social media strategy. The authors believed that these strategieshad to be connected somehow and wanted to research it further.Qualitative research methodology was utilized in this study. The research data consisted oftwo semi-structured interviews with one employee at Hestra Gloves and one at Kronfönster.The interviews were made after the same protocol in form of questions and documentation.The result of the interviews revealed that both Hestra Gloves and Kronfönster had overallbusiness core values which were reflected in their strategies. Hestra Gloves had a generalbusiness idea which was used as a corporate strategy, they also had a social media strategyand they had working guidelines for their digital channels. Kronfönster followed their corevalues which permeate the whole organization and they had guidelines for both corporatelevel, digital level and social media level.The findings show that the companies which were investigated have linked their corporatestrategy with their digital strategy in a medium way. The findings also show that theinvestigated companies have linked their corporate strategy with their social media strategy ina medium way. The authors conclude that some strategy components are linked in a strongway and that some components are linked in a weak way.
