Somebody posted a question in Google + the other day asking if Social Media works for businesses. I watched as hundreds of people chimed in with varying responses. Most people felt that social media would work for other businesses, but not their own.
That's how I used to think.
30 days ago, I decided to get a social media mentor. He doesn't know this, but I cyber stalk Gary Vaynerchuk. He makes it so easy to do. The guy is everywhere on the web.
I've spent every waking moment over the past month learning from him. As I dug through his material, I found several videos, books and more that I could consume. By the way, he has nearly 1 million followers on Twitter, which is a ton for a business guy with his background.
The short end of the stick is that you need to read this book. Stop doing whatever you’re doing and download the audio book on audible.com so that you can get it right away.
Take the night off, listen to the whole thing, and then prepare to listen to it again and again. It’s that awesome.
Here are 5 reasons that you’re going to love it:
- You’ll discover how to reach your audience
- You’ll finally get Twitter and how to use it to grow a business
- You’ll begin to build a community around your company
- You’ll get more traffic to your website
- You’ll learn how to listen online and help people out
