THE CURRENT STATE OF MARKETING & SOCIAL MEDIA
When talking to other marketing professionals, the topic of trends always comes up…
More people are accessing websites on their smartphones – Is this newsworthy?
Some executives are not on social media at all – Are you really surprised?
Content is growing on blogs and websites. – I would hope so if you have a blog or website.
Facebook is one of the largest countries by itself – Do you have contact with millions of fans on Facebook?
Google+ is still underutilized – Ok, so if I just connected with someone on Google+ is that strange?
Linkedin is a great place to connect with others and learn about their businesses.
MARKETING NEWS NEEDS A FRESH CHANGE IN 2013
For me, I have decided that I need to really focus and spend time connecting with people who are more advanced in the areas of social media and marketing in general.
I want to connect with people who provide EXAMPLES and STRATEGIES of how they have used these channels to improve communication, branding and engaging with their clients.
This equates to more clients and more sales.
We only have so much time in our day. Why should I spend my time reading the same, dry information regarding trends and information that I already know. I want something fresh.
2013 WILL BE THE YEAR OF INCORPORATING MARKETING INTO OUR PROCESSES USING THE IPAD
If you have not read the story, read last week’s post, “Marketing Internally and Externally“. Our CEO is right, its time to stop reading and waiting for someone to use the new technology and social media platforms. It should be about working as a team at our own places of business to effectively meet the needs of our clients.
