5 reasons why I won’t use social media

February 23rd, 2010 by Frank Guzzo Leave a reply »
  1. I dislike transparency and would prefer to hide from my potential clients
  2. I would prefer to grow at a slower more manageable pace
  3. I think social media is just a fad and will not be around in a couple of years
  4. I have my own focus group and trust what we decide; we know what’s best for the consumer
  5. I cannot afford to spend any time or money on social networking

If you actually use these excuses to not get involved in Social Media, your business days are numbered.  The fact of the matter is that for as many reasons you or I can come up with to not get involved with social media, there are many more compelling reason to learn more about this new form of media and find out how to best utilize and harness its power to our advantage.

Social Media is here to stay. It has changed the landscape of how we communicate and interact with each other.  With the staggering number of people joining social media platforms on a daily basis and the way businesses have embraced this new method to reaching out to consumers, it’s hard to say where it will end, if it ever will.  What I do know and experts all agree, is that we are just scratching the surface of the Social Media Revolution.

If you truly are looking to reach out to a new client base and truly want to develop a product or products and services that meet your prospective clients expectations then getting involved with social media is not just an idea but a must for all businesses.  Imagine having the world’s largest focus group at your finger tips, feeding you ideas on how to improve your product or service.  Sharing our successes with their friends and family and literally sending these people your way.

That’s the power of this revolutionary new way of doing business.  It’s not a matter of if I get involved but a matter of when – and the time is now.
