I had an interesting meeting with a new client yesterday and we were talking about the importance of Social Media and do they do it!
The answer was they had a young apprentice who did this for them but they had since left and now stopped all activity.
This is very common, people think social should be carried out by the youngest person in the office, because they will understand it. The facts are that Social Media is Marketing and should be taken just as seriously
I have been involved in marketing for over 30 years so technically I am not a young person! But all the marketing I do is through Social Media.
The rules of marketing are exactly the same It is just the tools we use have changed, they are faster and more efficient and actually more exciting. So not to have a social media strategy and to think we need a young person in to do that is flawed thinking. Just the same as saying I don’t know anyone on Twitter so I cannot see a reason to use it. However, millions of people are. Twitter is great for late availability if you are in Tourism. Just as with Facebook advertising you can easily target people who are interested in what you are actually doing
My core skill when I started Genius Loci Media was SEO. I still do SEO, but it has changed and social media is now part of that mix. It is important to realise that social media is now part of your marketing mix.
