Yes, you read that right. I’m actually saying you may not need social media. It all comes back to the basics: What are your objectives? Who are your customers? Where do they look for information? How can you engage with them? How can you get them to act? (“Liking” you isn’t the same as buying from you.) Social media isn’t magic; it won’t instantly generate revenues, make a bad product great, or keep customers loyal. It’s also not—despite what some say—easy, simple or truly free. You need a strategy and then you need to implement it. (And, IF you use social media, you don’t have to do everything. Whew!)
If you’re in the Albuquerque area, join Erika Yocom and me on Thursday June 16th, 8:30 to noon. We’ll start with business strategy, discuss effective targeting, market positioning, integrated marketing planning, and setting business goals…all before we dive into the possibilities and details re social media tools. You’ll come away understanding where social media (may) fit in your biz mix with next steps that won’t break your brain or your budget. We’ll also allow some time at the end for one-on-one personal consultations. Register here.
Neither of us want to sell you social media services—so we won’t be telling you you HAVE to have Facebook, Twitter or anything else. It’s all about what works for you (and your customers.)
Attendance is limited to 25—so if you want to join us, sign up sooner rather than later. I don’t usually make guarantees..but I can promise you, it’ll be fun, irreverent and educational. So, grab that seat at Eventbrite. Muchas gracias to our sponsors, The National Organization of Trusted Advisors and SimplyDesign.
Interested in doing a workshop just for your group or company? Drop me a line or call. We can customize both length of the workship and content. (I’ve done it for nonprofits, startups, and technology giants.)
