How “I Don’t Have Time for Social Media” is Ruining Your Business

Let’s face it, social media is becoming a key ingredient for pretty much all companies. If you’re sitting there with your arms crossed and a scowl on your face because you hate social media – it’s OK – but are you willing to let that get between you and your customers? Is “I don’t have the time” winning?

It’s easy to say that you don’t have the time for something, and you’d be right, at the moment, you don’t. What’s not easy to say is that you can make the time for something that’s not only important but necessary.

Social media is necessary for so many reasons with statistics backing it up that we really don’t need to bore you with. But the proof is in the pudding, and in this case the pudding is Facebook. I don’t believe you when you say you can’t make time for Facebook. What I do believe is that you have no idea what you’re doing when it comes to Facebook, and that’s OK. In fact being in the state of “I don’t know” is the PERFECT place to be! We can work with you there! We help business owners who don’t know what to do, or what to post, how often, how to run an ad or boosted post, and people who don’t know any of what we just listed, too. The good news is, iThumbs_up_icont doesn’t mean you don’t have time, it means that once you have a clue, you can start taking action!

It’s important to know that even when a professional company is managing your Facebook account or any other social media account for that matter – that you remain involved. Yes, you should trust them, and yes they (we) know more about what we’re doing than you. But, it’s YOUR company’s voice, it’s YOUR goals, and YOUR vision that we’re carrying out. You should know how to make a post that’s more personal to your company than what we could possibly know. You should be able to thank customers, and feel confident in responding to both positive and negative reviews.

When you’re committed that I don’t have time for that then you close off possibilities for yourself, your company, and your family that you may not even know about. The benefits of networking online are limitless, you could find your next employee, manager, investor, find new customers, and make new business connections in town. You could be attracting a larger audience, growing into a nationally or internationally known brand. What other way can people from different places see the same thing: The Internet! So when you know for sure it’s not worth your time are you sure of exactly what you could be giving up by saying that? Yes, it’s that serious, marketing your business is the blood line! Could you be giving up revenue? reputation? customers? sales? And you know what happens when business is lost – we don’t have to tell you. Think of it like this, if you’re not growing, you’re shrinking. So why not get involved in every single possible marketing or sales stream and have every opportunity to communicate with your customers? When else could you find out what people are saying about you without them actually telling you??
