Are You Social Media Satisfied?

social media fitnessIs your social media out of shape? Do you feel like you spend hours on it without ever getting the results you seek? Do you dump thousands of dollars into it with no profitable ROI? You are not alone.

Only 5% of companies are satisfied with their social media campaigns (based on a 2012 survey of more than 2,700 social media professionals conducted by Ragan/NASDAQ OMX Corporate Solutions.)

Of those respondents in the survey, many said they just don’t have time for social media. 38% of marketers spend 1-5 hours weekly on social media, 26% spend 6-10 hours and 15% spend more than 20 hours each week on social media. Despite this, only 5% said they were satisfied with their social media campaigns.

So what gives?

Isn’t social media supposed to be easy?

There are so many different social networking sites, marketing methods, rules to remember and procedures to follow that it can feel like taking on a second job. But it doesn’t have to be this difficult.

What is one reason so many brands struggle with their social media? They don’t have the right goals and they don’t have a plan. Too often people chase their tails, following after some one number or statistic or another, none of them really meaning anything. They're worried about who has the most Facebook fans or the highest Klout score. They're tracking metrics that don't matter.

Why? Usually because some "expert" told them to.

What if I told you that you could manage your social media in as little as 30-60 minutes per day and still be successful?

Building a Brand with LinkedIn

Linkedin online social network

Posted by Lisa Mason on November 24, 2014 in Business, LinkedIn | 1 comment

For many of us, LinkedIn is not a new concept. You’ve been around the social media block a time or two and you know that LinkedIn can be great for searching for jobs, posting an online resume and even for networking. However, many small businesses are not fully utilizing LI for building a brand and that’s what I want to talk to you about today. LinkedIn is unique in that it works for personal networking and job-seeking. It is not your traditional social networking site, yet the networking and social integration make it more than just a job board site. Some people dismiss LI if they are not in the active job market but you could be doing yourself a great disservice if you operate your own business or brand.

Continuing on the recent theme of being real, I have been doing some self-reflecting lately. I’ve thought about who I am as a business person, a woman, a mom, a friend, a lover, a professional- and in these thoughts, I have discovered some things about myself. I don’t really think these are new revelations so […]
