You see, I think it’s time for a radical change. People are getting lazy on social media, really lazy and we are starting to see the fallout. In the past few months I have seen people start to think it is a waste of time, and frankly they might be right. The same information is being presented everyday and I believe people are hungry for change. Our society is dictating it.
Think about the Apple Products. We know the new iPhone 5 is coming out very soon. A new iPad is around the corner. Everyone wants to stay current and keep up with the latest technology. Apple wants to be different and it works at it everyday!
As far as social media, I think companies have a good understanding of what it is, but its a matter of showing people how to take it to the next level. Listen to your customers and take the next action and show you care about them.
Take a look at your own social media initiatives and see what is working and what is not working. If you want an example, check out yesterday’s post, “Rethinking Social Media 2012“.
Today, I am fired up. I want some change and a new direction. Yesterday, I saw first-hand that people are hungry for new content and a new direction.
I received some great personal comments from some people who have followed me for awhile. AA Big Thanks to those of you who sent comments. – Those comments really showed me that it is time for a change.
Those of you who write blog posts, please take a minute and really listen to your clients and readers. They are hungry for new content and they want to follow people who also feel the same way.
Today’s Tip – Reconnect with your faithful readers and keep your eye out for some “new superstars” out there who are different than all the rest. We need to interact more with people. This really is the key to success.
Now is not the time to get lazy and stop learning. Now is the time to be innovative and to push yourself to new heights.
Get Fired Up Today and begin to make a difference.
