Social Media Marketing- The Power of THE GREAT UNDERSTANDING in Social Media

 

Social Media marketing.

It was all over the place recently at the blogworld expo convention.

It was ROCKING HOT. People tweeting about it, blogging about it, sending mobile uploads, podcasting live, ustreaming about it.

What a great event and I love las vegas and the climate. But also the greatest part of it was the education that someone could learn from it.

I would suggest that you get on the bandwagon and be there next year. Scott Monty was there. The founders of twitter. Many different Directors of social media was here for many fortune 500 companies.

And Scott was even interviewed on CNN about the social media revolution. GO Scott! How about Chris Brogan? And all the speakers there?  it was an AMAZING chance to learn and grow in social media.

Why am I telling you this?

Yes, I know.

I have not posted in a week.

Social Media Marketing- Content in Social Media is NOT King (or Queen)

 

Content is NOT king.

Hmmm…this may go against the grain with some folks.

But after 4 years in social media, I believe that I need to write this and get this off my chest.

There is a myth out in the social media zone, saying, “Content is king.”

That is not true.

If it were, there would be a HUGE amount of more articles and blogs and posts that the search engines would be indexing and showing in all of it’s search results…

But that is not really happening.

Why?

Because Content is NOT King (or Queen.)
