Social Media is the Same for Everybody

What works for one business, does not equal success for another when it comes to stepping into the social media ring.  Too many times businesses get caught up with the bright shiny objects, the tools, even the platforms without ever asking the foundational questions to start.

Today we will be answering questions like:

  • What are the biggest myths in social media?
  • Are there industries that are not suitable for participating in social media?
  • Why are there so many mistakes being made by soloprenuers and smaller companies?
  • Are there commonalities from traditional to social media?
  • Where are the common fears amplifying their concerns for becoming active in social media?
  • How to identify the best questions to ask when determining how to step into social media?
  • What do you need to know to make an informed and educated decision to integrate social media?


Common Myths Discussed


Classic myths in social media


Like fairy tales, there is some truth inside every story.  Today we will be opening the book to separate the myth from reality.

Social media is for…

  • Marketing to consumers only
  • Small businesses are at a disadvantage to big brands
  • You can go viral with Social Media
  • Time consuming
  • Opens small business to a new can of worms
  • One voice only – limit employees or beware
  • Social media is your silver bullet to sales
