  • Social Media is Inexpensive False. As Charlene Li (Altimeter / Forrester) said recently, social media trades media cost for labor cost.

  • Social Media is Fast False. Social media is by definition slow. Done correctly, social media is about developing meaningful relationships with customers and prospective customers in their natural habitat. Thats not a wave the magic wand scenario. You have to create content, be part of many communities, and proceed incrementally. Many successful social media programs take months (or even more than a year) to really germinate.

  • Social Media is Optional False. It doesnt matter what the demographics of your customers are. It doesnt matter what industry youre in. Your customers and prospects are talking about you online. Your company needs to be part of that conversation. Today. Online is where many people do their talking, so thats where you need to be. Source: Convince & Convert,
