Do we Actually Need Social Media?


It would appear that every time a new social media network comes out, there’s a bunch of new teachers and insiders ready to take your money to help you with it. These cookie cutter content spinners blab on about all the many wonderful reasons you will need to climb on the bandwagon.

Effectively, we say “enough”!

Social media has enough guru’s!

What with the Social Media thing anyway?! – It’s just an another way to get traffic.. isn’t it?

Who requires visitors anyway? All these mindless consumers following Twitter and Facebook .. they’d just suck up bandwidth of your site! There is plenty of advertising and marketing, directory submissions PPC and the like to drive traffic to your website. Don’t be a sheeple people!

You CAN get visitors without social media or networking!

Can’t keep up?
Twitter and Facebook have been confirmed to generate leads. But what will happen if you have a robust social media campaign? What if you get tons of leads? No… do not be concerned about it. You have far more to do then you can take care of!

You can’t afford it anyway!

Everybody talks about the “affordability” of social media, but accomplishment never comes affordable. Why, even if you have a social media marketing strategy, it will take an hour perhaps two every single morning to implement. – that is.. unless you use platforms like Hootsuite or Socialoomph to track campaigns..

You don’t have to have feedback, lead generation tactics, SEO or Marketing! – you are just fine!

The only thing you need to have to be concerned with is about how consumers view your solutions, services or small business right? So what! if you can get immediate feedback from social media networks? Who needs that? Nobody wants like to hear about how their home business, consumer service, items or services can be enhanced. And anyway, improvement is very overrated. There is a thing to be mentioned for “old school”.. or “I Like My Way!”

Your site is ranking on at least the third page of Google?! Right?!?

Just because social marketing is an important tool for search engines to align you with topics and content .. doesn’t mean it has to be a crucial tool for you! Right?! If you’re on the third page of the Google, and that number one spot isn’t that useful. It only gains about 36% of the visitors for that search! I mean when people talk in social circles, they talk about relationships and friendships. Your personal life is NOT a business enterprise! You are in business to make money, not friends.

If you have a good product, and word will get out on its very own. Aside from that, what can you say in 140 characters or less that you can’t say when someone asks you what you sell?

You know how much weight we put on social media and networking: a lot. Social media marketing is an inexpensive, somewhat uncomplicated way to drive targeted visitors to your web site and achieve leads.

So if someone brings up social networks and asks why they need to use it,. don’t forget the all-crucial sarcastic remark. Why not?
