Social Media Marketing- 3 Huge Lies Found all Over Social Media

 

 

YOU LIE!

Social Media can really irritate me.

REALLY.

These lies in social media that people are promoting daily that as far as marketing and social connections, have little to do with either of the two. I hear them on podcasts, see them on blogs, and view them on videos and each time I feel like SHOUTING to the roof top.

I believe it was Joe Wilson that shouted out “YOU LIE”during his speech. Well, maybe we need to take the Joe Wilson speaking course and shout that out  at out social media folks that are promoting lies and maybe even are not aware of they are doing it. They may be just repeating what they have heard in social media.

One of the things I do, I consult companies- traditional and non-traditional- on marketing, social media, success, leadership, team building, home business strategies, plus other topics. And I could never take the 3 concepts that I am hearing and make it a part of any consult.

They probaly would end up firing me.

And they would you too.

Social Media Marketing- A Secret from a Billion Dollar Entrepreneur

 

 

A Billion Dollar Salad.

THAT is a lot of money, and a lot of wealth, and salad.

This is not going to be a long post, but well worth the read.

I was recently talking over lunch to a CEO and Founder of a company that does over a billion dollars a year and it is a traditional business. He was enjoying his salad immensely. Turns out that his salad contained a billion dollars worth of advice as well.

 At least it helped catalyzed it.

The CEO is well spoken and a brilliant visionary, and a good friend of mine. I have learned much from him. We have done some business together in the past and will again.

He and I were talking about social media marketing and all the possibilities that were there, and he asked me a question.

“Would you like a piece of billion dollar advice?”

“Sure-you bet” I said.

He leaned over his billion dollar salad and smiled, and said, “I have watched social media for the last 4 years, and it appears that you have done allright with it with exposing your trainings on the social sites. Bravo. I have also noticed that there is a well kept secret that most in social media have not figured out, but the ones who have– are getting very rich in social media. VERY rich. You have done well, but want to do a whole lot better?”

I was all ears.

“Here is a secret-find out what people are looking for - I mean REALLY LOOKING FOR and REALLY WANTING -take the time to study that –ask a lot research questions in your marketing niche about what is missing and what void needs to be filled desperately. THEN-give it to them…but do it  BETTER than anyone else possibly could imagine. Drop their jaws. Make your competitors envious and depressed… do that in social media, and you will own your social media marketing niche within a year or sooner. Guaranteed.”

THAT is a billion dollar nugget – for social media marketing.

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.
