Social Media Marketing- FIRE NUGGET -Which Question do YOU ASK?

FIRE Nugget 

There are 3 questions in social media you can ask 

 1. How can you help ME ?  

2.  How can I help YOU ?  

3.  How can I SERVE YOU ?  

The last question is a HUGE difference between the other two.  Serving in social media marketing requires GIVING and GOING that extra mile that most will not. SERVING is not limited to helping, but it soars to the level of ONLY YOU. You become so valuable to them they think of ONLY YOU concerning your message.

That is the place you want to be in. ONLY YOU are thought of when it comes time to move on your message and products.

That is the power of social media- being on the top of their mind when it is time to purchase or hire for their needs.

Social Media is a serving zone.

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.
