I admit, lately I have been quite frustrated with the whole social marketing scene.
I have tried a lot of different things. I have been on twitter, facebook, youtube and other video sharing sites, social bookmarking, and much more trying to build social contact with a business purpose.
The outcome can only be described as mixed but mostly poor result.
I love the social aspect of it. It’s fun to get to know new people with shared interests, but when doing it for business purposes you have to see some results. That’s why it’s so important to do it right.
I just watched a video by Don Crowter. He claims most people (like me) are doing social media all wrong. Their systems make them lots of friends, but little money. In this video Don shows you the deceptively simple, but highly effective secrets that will hopefully put you and me on the right track with social marketing.

Until next time 😉

Even I tried facebook ads but it didn’t work well for our products. I am going to try it second time with a different approach. If it works for somebody then it should definitely work for me too. As you’ve said, it should be done right.
Thanks for sharing the video.
Yes, I have and keep on trying facebook but the advertising rates are still too high with extremely low conversion rates.
Best of luck with your future attempts.
Bit annoying… I can’t see the video. All I get is a sign-up page, and even after signing up… I have to wait until “the next session” of something or other.
Did he change something here?
Yes, the video has been removed.
