“Social media’s not a hairnet. No one’s going to shut you down for not using it.”
Marie Forleo makes that comment in this video, and asks on her related post: “Do you ever feel pressured to be more active than you truly want to be on social media?”
In the video, Marie mentions this book:
Satisfied Customers Tell Three Friends, Angry Customers Tell 3,000: Running a Business in Today’s Consumer-Driven World by Pete Blackshaw.
And the article on Mashable she mentions:
10 Very Successful Small Businesses That Don’t Use Social Media.
The video comes from a post by Marie Forleo: “How To Use Social Media So It Doesn’t Overwhelm Your Life” at her site www.marieforleo.com [in June, 2013].
One of the comments on the post is from Connie [enchantingoccasionsllc.com] – “I teach social media marketing classes here in Tucson, AZ and the #1 complaint is “how do I keep up with all this?” We always recommend 2 things: #1 know your market and which platforms they are on (facebook, twitter, pinterest) #2 pick 3 platforms to become an expert in and stick to those. The purpose of social media is to engage and interact with your customers and to do that well you don’t want to spread yourself too thin.”
Entrepreneur mentor Marie Forleo says on her site: “I’m here to make you rich. Before we go further, let’s redefine rich, shall we? Because the rich I’m talking about reaches far beyond toys and cash. Rich means unlocking your spiritual potential, nurturing your health and happiness and using your unique talents to change the world.”
