    You’re absolutely right – small businesses need to participate in social media. But do they even have those 7 minutes to spare and do they know what to do….correctly? Social media marketing must be overseen by the owner/ CEO, but it needs to be a separate function.

    As marketers and business people, we ought to really just skip the social media jargon, and speak in plain English (like Mike Lewis describes in Social Media Leadership: How to get Off the Bench and Into the Game – and BTW I’m not pimping the book, just stating that’s exactly his point in the book).

    Chatter matters. At this very moment, social media is improving the customer support a business may need next week. It’s damaging, or enhancing, the reputations of brands and products we all use today. It’s influencing prices, political opinion, trends in fashion, travel, entertainment, and much more in the world we all live in. Right now. And right now it’s picking winners and losers in competitions we’re not even aware of.

    To quote from Lewis’ book, “Social media doesn’t stop at Facebook, and it’s not a province only for the young. It has real-world impact on every individual, and on every industry. The challenge for business is not merely to acknowledge this importance, which is fundamental. It’s not merely to become an active participant in the conversation, which is critical. The challenge is to master the total media ecosystem and use it to best position their brands in this new world of free discourse and connected consumers.”

    Companies must be willing to live in a glass house and adjust their business strategies in near-realtime, and the person in charge of those strategies is the owner. So if the owner doesn’t get it, the business is in trouble.

    Thanks for the opportunity to contribute my comments and for bringing forth this much needed topic.

    Kind regards,
