You’re Doing It Wrong!

As marketers we are all fully aware of how hard it is to change people’s behavior. It is one of the hardest things that you can attempt to do. It’s why Google, for now, will enjoy continued search success, because people are accustomed to “Google it” when they need to find something on the web.

Picture 31.pngKnowing this, I am fascinated by the number of people I see on Twitter and blogs who are telling others that they are using Social Media wrong. What fascinates me even more is that these are the people who are either working as consultants or at agencies, whether it be PR, Marketing, or Social Media.

You want a secret on how to advance Social Media and help companies grow their business online? Stop telling people that they are doing it wrong and start telling people how they can do it better. No one wants to be told that they are wrong, they want to know how to better their business. It’s an easy way to grow your business and see better adoption of social media practices on the corporate level.

We are all learning how to use these tools, empower people and watch your business take off.

    I agree.. I did a recent post titled "Social Media I need a tutor?" I see more and more business owners thinking or starting to engage in social media but find there is a little disconnect. Some are clueless and others devalue the ability of social media. To many "EXPERTS" are claiming to be an expert or promising results they themselves have not achieved. With the lack of knowledge and time to learn, business owners are simply being sold. I follow and respect those in social media just as if I was looking to them as a financial consultant. If the financial consultant has not yet established themselves financially, how could they consult for me.
    I would appreciate any feedback on my blog http://yougonetwork.com/johnnie_firari/2009/08/so… Something as a small business owner I am still shaping and working to commit to. Thanks.
