Every social media platform serves a certain purpose – never limit yourself to just one

social-media-strategy

It’s very simple.  Every single social media platform serves it’s own purpose.  You cannot be successful dabblling on Facebook.  You will not be successful if you do not use Linked in.  For local Businesses, Foursquare is a gold mine “free coupon-ing” that nobody uses because they do not know it exists.  They miss out on people like me, who live and die for Being the mayor and receiving badges, and specials for checking in.

Another important point STOP ADVERTISING on Facebook posts and thinking this is going to drive people into your store with the ad.  It’s not gonna happen.  Enough Said.

Google +, on the other hand, has given us some great advantages to increase our online searchability in “real time”

Wondering why should you use GooglePlus in your marketing mix? Just one solid reason, “if you ignore Google+, Google search will ignore you“, says Larry Page co-founder of Google.*

It does not matter what industry you are in.. Social Media is not going away… Time to Evolve

 You may not completely be able to measure your social ROI.. but think of this…  Today’s Customer does Business on their terms, and their terms only.  If we don’t adapt to every new channel of communication, we are merely missing out on opportunities.

Social media is now part of how organizations, companies and society operate. Organizations big and small, urban and rural, tech savvy and tech adverse, can no longer ignore or avoid the importance and impact of social media. As I continue to explore what technology can mean for business development, the role of social media is quickly becoming a central part of that exploration. As a result, I am increasingly immersed in social media, expanding beyond the longtime facebook presence and establishing more comprehensive profiles and a more active presence in the other main networks including Google+, LinkedIn, Twitter and most recently Pinterest.

People are always looking for examples of how social networks such as Linkedin or Facebook actually brought them business.  Well I can tell you one thing, over the past two years I have been managing social for numerous businesses and I can’t tell you how often someone asks a question randomly on a social site.  If I was not monitoring these sites, those questions would go unanswered, and wow… loss of business!  I know it works.  I see it everyday.

I wanted to share with you an email I just received from a client.  Please READ IT AND WEEP all of you anti-socialites…

Managing your Business’ online Reputation is Really NOT THAT HARD…

postcard-5inx7in-h-front

With all the commotion about Reputation Management, why is it so difficult to get reviews – positive ones from yelp and google?

Reason:  You are not taking the time to manage and control this.  This is allowing others to do it for you.

We have developed a one of a kind system for collision centers and car dealerships that involves their sales and service customers, the happy ones, and rewards them for writing a review.

Nobody in the store has time to do it?  We do it all for you.

‘Yelp Reputation Management for Car Dealers; What Are Filtered Reviews?’

Automotive Reputation Management; How Yelp Review Filtering Works and Why it Effects Car Dealers. Yelp has come under criticism because of their “Filtered Review” process which takes certain reviews, mostly those from Yelp users who are not deemed trustworthy, and moves those reviews into a “Filtered Reviews” section, thus removing them from appearing on the dealer’s profile page… When this hap…
