I HATE SOCIAL MEDIA!…Or Do I??
Nothing gets a customer in your store like word of mouth!
But today word of mouth has changed to “Word of Type” or even “Word of Thumb”
You took the time to drive a potential customer to your website so that they would love what they see. Whether or not it’s a product or blog post, build it simple for them to share it with their friends. Milk the conversion for all it’s value – get new customers on board via social media sharing of the merchandise, page or article.
Grow your Social Media community with great service and great products.
You can spend all the time in the world making content and building connectivity through social media, however it’s solely by growing your community with real fans that your overall online presence will grow. Fan advertising on Facebook could be a good way to reveal your products to new potential customers, however why not get your existing clients who know and love your products to links to you on social media?
I HATE SOCIAL MEDIA!!
I have heard this from a lot of business owners and I totally understand. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Tumblr, Instagram, YouTube, Blogs or Pinterest can seem like narcissistic dribble. And to be honest, I agree. I would much rather be out living life with my friends and family than reading or posting what I’m doing for everyone to see. Most business owners are too busy running their business and don’t have time for social media. But this isn’t about you or me anymore, it’s about business. It is about your target audience for your business! It’s about social medial clout, google search results, target marketing and advertising tools.
Nobody watches commercials anymore thanks to the DVR, no one listens to radio ads – they listen to Pandora, nobody reads newspapers anymore thanks to this thing called the internet ;). So if you want to reach customers, you have to do it in the way that they access information to make buying decisions. So like it or not that is where we are today, and I can help you take care of all the social media for you so you can get back to running your business and being with your family.
