I had to get this off my chest. I’m tired of marketers telling businesses that they need to be doing XYZ with Social Media in order to really elevate their brand or get more business, before they even properly diagnose the problem that needs to be solved.
Social media marketing is super important, and I believe everyone needs to have some sort of social media strategy – however, it is definitely not the end-all-be-all solution for every single business across the board.
In order for a marketing agency to properly prescribe the right marketing solution for a business, they must first ask these questions:
– Who wants what you have to offer?
– What pain points are they wanting you to solve?
– Where is their attention?
– How can we start a conversation with them?
If in answering these questions social media seems to be the best solution, then focus your efforts there. But don’t come to the conversation already having the answer.
