Social Media Marketing Mistakes

June 21, 2010

I’ve just been reading a very interesting article by Mike Proulx of Bloomberg Businessweek, called Top Five Social Media Marketing Mistakes.

In the article, Mike is saying that businesses large and small should;

  • Monitor Social Media in order to know what is being said about them.
  • Ensure that the right people are responding when needed. The wrong responses can be very damaging and costly.
  • Respond Quickly – delays send bad signals to the market.
  • Never fake anything in Social Media – you will be found out!
  • Never Stop – Social Media is an ongoing activity and marketing investment.

The larger the business and the bigger its public profile, the more critical it is that it manages its Social Media presence expertly and diligently.
