marketing quotes

Social Media

1. Sean Gardner (@2morrowknight) “Social media is not just an activity; it is an investment of valuable time and resources. Surround yourself with people who not just support you and stay with you, but inform your thinking about ways to WOW your online presence.”

2. Jessica Northey (@jessicanorthey) “In Social Media the “squeaky wheel” gets the oil. You have to put yourself out there, to find people who will relate or even debate with you, depending on what you are looking for.”

3. Aaron Lee (@askaaronlee) “These days, social media waits for no one. If you’re LATE for the party, you’ll probably be covered by all the noise and you might not be able to get your voice across. It could only mean that if you want to be heard by the crowd, you have to be fast; and on social media, that means you have to be REALLY fast.”

4. Paul Barron. (@paulbarron) “I use social media as an idea generator, trend mapper and strategic compass for all of our online business ventures.”

6. Pam Dyer. (@pamdyer) “Social media is inherently a selfish medium.”

7. Laura Fitton (@pistachio) “Everyone starts out with nobody listening to them and nobody to listen to. How and who you add determines what Twitter will become for you.”

8. Bonnie Sainsbury (@bsainsbury) “Social media will help you build up loyalty of your current customers to the point that they will willingly, and for free, tell others about you.”

9. Neal Schaffer (@nealschaffer) “The overarching problem is that everyone sees and uses social media from a different perspective.”

14. Lilach Bullock (@Lilachbullock) “Do not write BS if you don’t know what to write! It’s as simple as that.”

15. Steve Farnsworth (@steveology) “Trustworthy content has a balanced point of view. It asks and answers the right questions. It doesn’t love itself. It tries to inform and educate.”

16. Jeff Barrett (@barrettall) “Companies are looking to be quicker with content, provide faster approval and be able to capitalize on the conversation and content of the moment.”

17. Marsha Collier (@Marshacollier) “Content-based marketing gets repeated in social media and increases word-of-mouth mentions; it’s the best way to gather buzz about a product.”

24. Christine Korda (@christinekorda) “This is a learning process and sometimes you have to fall in order to learn things.”
