Social Media Marketing – Tell Me What You Want, What You Really Really Want

Plain and simple – I want to know your thoughts about social media marketing, the tools, the apps and what your most significant challenges are. I see reports and articles pretending to know the issues surrounding the industry, only to realize that the people who created the report only questioned a handful of huge brands that wouldn’t know effective social media marketing if it slapped them in the face. I see new tool after “cool” new tool being created everyday that are created because they can, not because it actually fills a pressing need of the industry.

Social Media ChallengesThe thing is, I really want to know, don’t you? What are the real challenges facing social media marketers today. What do they want and need, for real. How are they using social media and what amount of time do they actually spend trying to achieve results.

My motivation is pretty rudimentary and straight forward… If someone takes the time to truly understand what marketers really want and need within the industry, someone (us) can deliver it. Now to be clear, we believe we have a good understanding of the space since we were and are social media marketers, not some software gear heads that decided to make social media software because “social media is huge”.

There are so many important questions that are not being asked out there.

I Want To Know The Answers To Questions Like:

HOW MANY DAYS PER WEEK DO YOU SCHEDULE CONTENT FOR YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA STREAMS?

ON AVERAGE, HOW MANY SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS TO YOU SCHEDULE EVERY DAY?

HOW MANY HOURS PER DAY DO YOU SPEND FINDING, EDITING, SCHEDULING AND POSTING CURATED AND MARKETING CONTENT TO YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS?

THE TWO BIGGEST CHALLENGES I FACE WITH MY OVERALL SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING ARE?

We All Need To Better Understand:

1) How to spend more time building relationships and fostering engagement.

2) How to better achieve sales, revenue and ROI.

3) How to best leverage content to achieve better results.

4) And hundreds more…

What if?

What if you and several other social media marketing professionals, agencies, brands and marketers could have a say with a brand in the industry that actually listened?

What if after listening, they committed to addressing the needs YOU stated you had and the challenges YOU face in the field?

Then

Consider that done. In fact, I created a survey to help us better understand social media marketing, curation, content marketing and how they work together.

So, if you’re a social media agency, marketer, consultant or brand, tell me what you’re dealing with, the challenges you face and what your needs are.

  5. Great post.

    Unfortunately it is my belief that people don’t know what they want/need until you show or tell them.

  6. I think the major goal for the new year should be to build relationships and show they matter. That’s what I really, really want…
