Reaching People Through Social Media

Reaching People Through Social Media

I had an interesting conversation with small business owners over the weekend.  I was amazed by the failure of many of their marketing attempts, many with social media.  It is great when you see the likes and hearts and smiley faces.  It is not so great when you look at your ad spend and realize all these bells and whistles haven’t really driven one sale.

What is the best media platform for you?

Platforms like Linkedin, Twitter, and Facebook are the most popular ways business are communicating with each other right now.  People, however, are seeking something deeper.  They are tired of seeing ads in there social media streams.  They are also being more cautious about content that is really a sales pitch.  To successfully reach people online you might want to focus your time on social media platforms, building relationships with people who you can help solve a problem for, and not just getting them to click on your ad.
