Businesses trade on attention. We have since the beginning of commerce. You can’t sell to someone unless you have their attention and no one can buy from you if they aren’t first aware of who you are and what you offer.
In history, we had the town crier was there to greet you in the busy streets. Newspaper ads were there to meet you as you read about what was happening. Radio spots interrupted your favorite programs. Theater advertising met you at the show. And Prime time was the time when most of America was watching television and your attention could be held captive while waiting to find out how your favorite show continued.
Today, everyone’s attention is on this device. While riding as a passenger in a car, during commercial breaks on tv, while waiting at a restaurant or at a meeting, the world is focused on the smart phone. And Social Media rules the mobile phone. If you aren’t making content for the 6-9 platforms that live on this device, then you aren’t getting people’s attention like you could.
Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, YouTube, Spotify, Google My Business, iHeartRadio, there are many… and if you aren’t there... you are missing out.
Now, some people have a hard time considering it as an equivalent media to reach their customers because access to the platforms are free. But remember, broadcast TV and Radio are free to the public as well…you just don’t have a media-based profile. And right now, social media holds greater value for businesses because it’s even more targetable than traditional media and it’s less expensive comparatively.
Maybe it’s time for you to redirect some of your marketing budget to where the people’s attention has moved. or maybe it’s time for you to start…
One of the most requested topics I get asked to speak on is Social Media. Because it’s relatively new and ever changing.
I often get asked how much it cost:
Well, just like with other marketing tools, the cost to market your business via social media will vary - depending on your industry and your consumer audience. Smaller markets need less and therefore it costs less. Larger marketing will require more. It’s all about the time it takes to do it.
