Isn’t that the new-age question in everyone’s head’s? To me, social media is interesting. It is a quickly evolving medium that allows me to stay connected with more people than before. I also have the opportunity to leverage my ideas for the strength of my social influence in my sphere.
Problem that I see many struggle with is the overall strategy of implementing social media into their business. Main reason for this is that many hear the value of social media and quickly believe it is the end-all way that is destined to be the backbone of their company. On the other end of the stick, you have other people who rely on good ole’ personal touch and physical work (calling, meeting with people, etc.) and don’t spend a second on social networks.
As I look out onto my daily actions with others, it seems as though people fail to realize that it is not social media that will define your company, nor is it solely the physical work you put in that will add to your company’s results anymore. In fact:
It is the thoughtful combination and execution of physical prospecting and social media activities that help propel your business forward.
For me, many think, because they see my posts regularly and my business is growing, that social media is the main reason for my growth.
In reality, that concept is far from the truth. My business has growth due to the physical actions I take on a daily basis; which tends to be phone prospecting. The key is for me, that I must know what role social media plays in my business and what prospecting plays in my business. Once I have that information, I need to execute each based off of the desired outcome for each specific activity.
