    Great blog you have here. So many blogs like yours cover subjects that arent found in magazines. I dont know how we got by 12 years ago with just newspapers and magazines.

    Great article!

    This is exactly why Social Media was No.2 in our recent survey on major time challenges people were trying to deal with.

    Time is definitely money. I deal with a lot of executives and business owners and a large majority of them don’t understand that social media is not free. It’s like anything else in business development: There’s no quick fix. But done correctly SM can be very powerful.

    I totally agree. I’ve been thinking, though, until when will the hype of social media in marketing last?

    Hi Pam, what a great post! This is the first time I have seen the figures you quoted with regards to the amount of time marketers are beginning to use on social media. My company, Cherple, offers a product that provides social media to the billions of cell phone users who haven’t caught up to the smartphone era, yet have a desire to stay in touch with their family and friends from around the world. Utilizing out patent-pending technology via SMS (texting) we have seamlessly bridged the gap between mobile and web devices. This technology is provided to ALL mobile devices (smart or otherwise) making it easier for folks to keep in touch. Just wanted to say thanks for the great read and looking forward to seeing more from you!

    I wholeheartedly agree with you that as you become more experienced in social media you use it more. You also broaden your range, as one social networks leads to understanding others faster. You also see the value. People who first start using social media dip their toes, and only later use it more extensively.

    Thank heavens, someone has to write this! Unbelievable as it may seem, there are still a few folks out there who think that social media is free.. and they would even argue with you that using all these social networking sites is free. I agree with you about one thing: Time is money.. no matter how vicious it sounds.

      Glad you liked my post and I couldn’t agree more with you!

    I’ve just recently jumped into social media and it is a huge time investment. I’m enjoying it but yeah… I get flake from peers that don’t see the point in all that time. Maybe in 6 months I can show some great prospects for all this work!

    1. Pam Sahota

      Best of luck! Social media is definitely an adventure (and one that requires time like any business endeavor). I’m sure you’ll do great!

    Interesting article. I wonder what marketing activities we don’t do anymore since we’ve switched to social media.
