Social Media Myths

Are you thinking of using Facebook, Twitter, or the like in your business? Before you go any further, take into account the following myths:

Social media sites are free.

Using social media sites isn’t as effortless or cheap as many people think. Sure, most let you set up an account for free. But there’s a noteworthy cost: your time. There’s nothing worse than a site that’s not up to date and to keep it current, someone’s going to need to spend time. This includes responding to visitors’ questions, posting extraordinary thoughts, adding images, and monitoring activity—basically trying to produce buzz.

Social networking is the future.

So should a business owner use social media sites for business? Maybe. Then again, maybe other customer service approaches make more sense. Remember newsletters, phone calls and support, direct mailers, and the like? Just because the media has determined that social networking is “in” doesn’t mean your customers are there.
