Why It Is Best To Just Use Many Different Social Media Sites In Addition To Blogging





The classic wisdom goes spread the love. If you are a blogger, do some social media or if you do Myspace check out Twitter. There have been recent questions as to the relative safety of word press the worlds most popular blogging medium of pro bloggers. This is just a major problem of the net. People can mess with it. They can steal your domains. They can hack your blogs. They can flag your social profiles and get them deleted. The net as a tool is more powerful than using the net as an ends in itself. This is the most apparent business lesson ever. Even the tech folk bring something off line on. It is the bloggers who are hit the worse. They depend on some type, hyper text, and media in a strange looking space ship to carry them consistently into the sunset. If you do not use the net as a tool, think of sales funnels, marketing, branding, relationship building, among other things you will just get burned and sad. So it is time to make more made for AdSense sites and not take the medium so seriously. Get your money from streams all over the place. Just imagine a billion tiny creeks of water draining into the lake of your money pot. Woot what do you think?

What They Say Is Meaningless, Debunking Social Media Myths One At A Time





1. There is much talk among people about being in with the tech adaptors. What does this mean? Just follow and friend the people with the most money and social capital? Are those people and what they say really that valuable to business? The answer is probably not beyond a general educational level but the myth still perpetuates that the influencers on Twitter or Facebook are where it is at. I believe this is a myth.

The most important people to friend are actually ordinary people, because they have a bigger and wider sphere of influence among more real friends.

2. Secondly social media is revolutionizing communication. This is false. Social media is just a good and new communication medium. People are communicating the same stuff in a new language. The same principles always apply. Be good. Be polite. Be helpful.

3. It is essential for a business to be in social media. Most businesses leave a footprint from what others generate. Because of this it is not essential for a business to be online at all. On the other hand if a business wants to weild a useful tool for promotion, and the building of social stripes than have at it.

4. Fourthly deep relationships matter. This is false. There is a disconnect between dealing a product or service and being social on the net. People can be more social than a butter fly but if their product is horrible they will loose anyways.

5. A major part of the online revolution is merely bringing content to life and not bringing life to the content. Think about that then leave a comment.
