Social media – don’t get left behind

social media bandwagonAs we have mentioned before – just once or twice – social media is a powerful marketing tool for businesses of all shapes and sizes.

Yet we often hear businesses say it’s a waste of time, or it’s a fly-by-night trend, or that it is of no value to their business.

Well, it is time to get out of that mindset. As General Eric Shinseki, retired Chief of Staff, US Army, has been quoted as saying “If you don’t like change, you’re going to like irrelevance even less.”

And traditional marketing channels – such as the Yellow Pages – are becoming more and more irrelevant as Facebook, Twitter and others take over.

But we know that with running a business, there is little time left in you day to worry about whether you have tweeted enough, or updated your status, or grown your likers and followers.

We also know that there are good and bad ways to market yourself on social media, and unfortunately, a lot of businesses don’t know how to turn Facebook likers or Twitter followers into customers. And because of this, they did their toes in the water but give up when they don’t see any return on investment.
