Thanks Janet for the heads up on these tools. I love tags and look for new ways to use them at every opportunity.
Thanks Genevieve for the post, lots of helpful info.
I'd really like to start seeing cost estimates that a small business can look at to help them make their social media budget. Social Media can be powerful but I suspect most small businesses with less than 10 million in sales or less than 10 employees might have a hard time eeking out ROI even within a year.
I love how straight forward this post is, it makes the case and is great for sharing with people I know in small business who so far avoid blogging. Thanks Genevieve for sharing this.
Thanks Mike for this post, it's like a fresh cup of coffee and my eyes are now open. I'm really looking forward to trying this out, especially the real time insigts.
Thanks Amanda for the overview. This is something I have shyed away from in the past but now seeing some free tools I can get my feet wet before jumping into spending some cash...
Oh people talk about the numbers, they talk about them in dark corners when no one else is around or they talk about the numbers while they're in the shower far ways from their clients.
Don't get me wrong I love Social Media and all its possibilities but for most small businesses the amount of time and money needed to be spent is huge compared to results. In time things will clear and the fog will lift from the path so everyone will see the way.
Nice post J,C, Thanks
