Socializing with your followers on social media should be a key component of your social media marketing strategy (and a small part of your overall SEO strategy). It may seem like an obvious statement but after looking at numerous companies’ social media sites it appears that some people still don’t understand how important this is to social media marketing success.

The people on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram giving your page love are on there to be social, to be entertained and to read or see something worth interacting with or sharing. Having a page that is interesting to your audience is what will get them to like, comment on, and share your stuff. The number one mistake companies make is using their social sites solely to promote their products and not providing value to their followers.

There’s been a huge upset over fake news being propagated over Facebook for some time now.

It isn't About the Technology

Running your business in 2018 requires a bit of understanding of technology. Even the least technical jobs, such as lawn care professionals, are sporting smartphones to check email, talk to staff and connect with clients.

The challenge is that technology can be a bit unnerving for some business owners. It’s not unnerving because it’s technology, per se. It’s unnerving because of the need to understand, yet again, something new.

Social media, blogs, iPhones and Android, search engine optimization, flux capacitors… how do we keep it all straight?

Let me suggest that technology is only a tool. It’s no different than a hammer or drill except it’s a tool that solves a different problem. Until we understand that the technology we use is meant to solve a specific problem, we’ll continue to focus on how hard it is to integrate technology into our business and marketing efforts.
