Just a few thoughts…
I recently followed an interesting discussion on LinkedIn. The question being asked was this –
It was interesting reading all of 127 comments from within the group. The answers varied in size and $$numbers. From realistic to outrageous! Some had great thoughts, some were interested in the same question. Others felt the question was incorrectly structured! Others also just commented to push for business. What a diverse group!
All this is a part of who we are as people, we see things differently, feel things differently and choose to handle things differently. Some people can be taught, some will listen, others will continue doing what they want. Is that bad? NO..it’s just a part of who we are in this vast world that we live in.
My comment in this intriguing discussion was this:
“Having stepped into this conversation in the latter part, I’ve enjoyed reading all the comments and thoughts.
#2 feeling the heartbeat
#3 watching the changing landscape and working with it
As I’ve monitored this changing landscape, here’s my 2 cents…
An outside Company is not really going to feel the “heartbeat” of your business. But Training your company in listening skills, time management, and networking your social channels along with creating strategies will most definitely help your bottom line, because it’s you speaking and who else knows your business better than you?
Sometimes businesses don’t really have a ‘fit’ for SM and best course of action is an updated SEO friendly website with new business cards and an easy to manage content system. Realize though that – Training and Consulting does create new jobs. Self helps in Social Media is a cost cutter comparing it to traditional marketing channels. Also the said company/business can hire an associate inhouse to complete their marketing landscape with Social Media, this way the associate can feel the heartbeat and understand it.”
