Mark - Interacting with your "friends" and customers on social media is the key. Just showing your presence and bombarding them with your marketing messages is not going to cut it. I also agree with your comment on mixing up the media. There are number of options out there besides Facebook and Twitter - Pinterest, Yelp, Forsquare, Instagram and so on.

Well said! Unfortunately, not many aware of what they are doing, especially with the automation tools out there on the web.

Again, I agree and echo your comment.

I was one of those social media "broadcasters", just using it to syndicate my content. But really getting result from social media require a lot of effort that includes reaching out to your customers and directly engaging them. And it takes time, time that most people aren't willing to put in.

Thanks to Mark for sharing his insights with our community.
