Key Pointsmade by Nick
On his book title: ‘Shout’ is the act of getting your message out there. ‘The Right Direction’ is getting your message to the right people.
Don’t spend all of your effort focusing on people who cannot and will not ever be your target audience.
Not all the people you are meant to do business with have the same social mindset as you. BE CAREFUL!
Keep your “causes” out of your business communications; social media is a relationship-building tool.
On research: Audit. Plan. Implement. Measure. Repeat.
When choosing your social media service that is right for you always consult your data. Where is the traffic coming from?
“The #1 social media metric is your profit and loss statement.” – Nick Rosener
Social media is better at brand awareness than it is at direct conversions.
