What Social Media Can And Can't Do

Rate this item
(0 votes)

Social media is at its best when used as a tool to build relationship, goodwill, listen and interact with customers in the early-to-middle stages of their buying cycle. This is the time to focus on providing consumers with content that matters to their buying process. Social media can also help your customers communicate the bad and the good, with you and everyone else they know. Besides, it is able to help you find opportunities to delight customers.


For all the upsides that social media can bring to your business, there still remains a great deal of uncertainty and misconceptions about what social media can actually accomplish in terms of overall business growth. Far too often, high (read: mismanaged) expectations can lead to disappointment, even frustration with the mechanism.

So, understand what social media can’t do is really important for determining your social media strategies.

Social media cannot make up for a bad product, company, or organization
If you are marketing a bad service or widget, not only will social media not help you but it will actually hurt your cause because word will spread quickly. The good news is, if you are using social media well, you will quickly know when you have bad products, employees, or processes. As a good businessperson or marketer, you can fix these problems before they cause any serious damage.

Social media won’t lead to overnight sales success
Success will take time, and it will come in increased buzz, referrals, traffic, and eventually, sales. Don't forget social media is not an instant win, do not expect the fans, followers, and responses to come rolling in overnight. You may have the platforms all set up, but other than what your organization does or delivers, what other reason would I have to buy your products or services? We are talking about building relationships with customers, that invariably takes time.

Social media is not free
It will take time and /or money to achieve sustained growth. Since it’s free to join Facebook and any social network worth talking about, many marketers think social media is free, or at least cheap. Well, the good news is, no matter how large your company is, it is nearly impossible to spend the kind of money on social media that large companies regularly have spent on above the line media like television in the last 20 years. But building and executing a likeable social media plan will take lots of time, work and resouces. Ultimately, such a plan can’t be the sole effort of any one marketing or public relations department. Instead, it must be integrated across your entire company, its agencies, and vendors.

    I do trust all the ideas you have introduced on your
    post. They are really convincing and can definitely
    work. Nonetheless, the posts are too quick for novices.
    May you please lengthen them a bit from next
    time? Thanks for the post.

    I think that everything typed made a ton of sense.
    However, what about this? suppose you typed a catchier
    title? I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your website, however suppose you added a
    post title that grabbed people's attention? I mean What Social Media Can And Can't Do
    is kinda boring. You could peek at Yahoo's home page and
    watch how they create news titles to get people to click.
    You might try adding a video or a pic or two to get readers interested about what you've written. Just my opinion, it might make your
    blog a little livelier.

    Hello! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog
    platform are you using for this site? I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and
    I'm looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be fantastic if you could point me in the
    direction of a good platform.

    One migt even consider choesterol to become the principal foundation for
    artrial plaque thus keeping cholesterol consumption under 200 milligrams or 30
    % daily if thhe extremely important a part of our plan. The condition affects between two and three percent
    of the UK population which enable it to have an impact on the
    way people think annd feel about themselves, and also the
    best way tto cope with everyday life. We have the ckassic tape, you have
