Where did social media start, what’s going on with it today, and where is it going? (the short version!)
What is the importance of thinking about business goals, plans and strategies when considering digital marketing and hiring an expert to help?
How important is it to learn how to express yourself well online? What is the balance of listening, asking powerful questions, and understanding in developing an authentic and powerful online presence?
What else is there other than the “usual suspects” of social media (like Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter, Yelp, Instagram, Pinterest and the like)? Is there more there?
What’s the right frequency to post online?
The beginning of Fall is upon us and we’re all planning for what our holiday business is going to look like, right? In a final look-back on our collective Summer, here are some articles I found to be particularly arresting……
- keep from being a follower when it comes to coming up with new and different ways to attract customers
- improve and create new products and services
- grow your business in scalable ways
- stand out from the crowd of competitors
- What do think of your product / service?
- Will they buy again?
- How will you know what they think unless they tell you?
- What kind of review will they give you (on-line or off-line)?
- What kind of influence will their experience have on how others think of you?
The basic ideas behind Customer Experience (or CX as it has come to be known) have been around for awhile. Think about when you walk into an office or a store of some kind. The initial impression of location, attractiveness, and the employees’ attitude towards you all contribute to the CX. It could be all over the place as to your experience, but that was, and is, a huge part of it In Real Life (IRL, for those of you who like acronyms…).

I got the chance to speak to a large group of business leaders this week about online reviews and how to work with them. This is an area that continues to be of concern to businesses, and has gained particular focus in the past few weeks with the troubles that United Airlines has had.
