Kenny, thanks for taking the time to comment on my post. As a content author I'm surprised you couldn't find even a morsel of positivity in my thinking :)
You outright dismiss my assertion that "content plays a major role" in one's marketing plan? That "a steady flow of new content ...can help you generate more traffic."
I scoured the text for my use of the word "guarantee" and couldn't find it anywhere! Aside from wondering why you've become so cynical, I'm really more curious about what you suggest people do instead of market with content. Images and video instead of content? What are your suggestions of tactics that "play a major role in one's marketing plan and can help generate more traffic?"
An associate of mine likes to share this infographic with people. Thoughts?
Again, thanks for your comment!
I totally agree Daniel. "Create powerful content with value!"
Thanks for taking the time to read my post.
That certainly doesn't hurt!
Thanks for taking the time to comment Sunday. Obviously, I agree with you and appreciate you sharing the post with others.
You make some great points John. I don't ususally recommend people rely exclusively on social media for all their marketing. I generally suggest you look at your social media strategy as another tool in your marketing shed. I'm also not aware of "A Tweet, Facebook message or LinkedIn recommendation" getting anyone any business. It's really the follow up that matters, along with your activity on these social sites and the efforts you make to build trust and credibility. Remember, people do business with people, not companies.
Thanks for taking the time to read my post!
Thanks for taking the time to read my post Hailey. You are so right when you say "social media opens up the door for many new opportunities."
