Is Social Media Marketing Intimidating?

It may seem at first glance that the entire world of online marketing is a private club that only the very tech savvy can[tweetmeme source= “alisonstoodley” only_single=false] join.  If you have dipped your toe into the often murky waters of blogging, Twitter, Linked In and the like you may come away from the experience feeling that you are unqualified, or that you just don’t have the time to learn the way things work.  Both ideas are simply not true.  Blogging and social media marketing can be incredible simply.  Once these tools are explained to you it becomes easy to see how the entire social media platform works together.  Now you can understand that with a strategic plan you can manage your social media presence in less than an hour a day.  You may even want to come back to the lake and wade in up to your hips, or, dare I say, dive in?

Of course there are companies out there like mine who will manage your social media marketing for you if you can’t liberate the hour a day but regardless of who does it, make sure you are well informed because your goal should be to eventually take it over .  Not only because it will save you money but because nurturing a social media presence can put you head and shoulders above the competition by ensuring you are up to date regarding innovations in your industry.  It is an excellent networking tool that will provide qualified, interested leads,  it is a bargain compared to traditional advertising and perhaps best of all, its fun!
