How Long Does Social Media Marketing Take?


AKA:  Allow­ing Your Social Media to Grow

One of the ques­tions (or con­cerns) that I some­times get from my clients is, “How long will this take?”  Like most peo­ple, when I want some­thing, I pret­ty much want it NOW.  The real­i­ty is, social media takes time to grow and reach it’s full effi­ca­cy.  It just does.  We ALL wish it would hap­pen light­en­ing fast, and in a mat­ter of weeks we’d have thou­sands of new fol­low­ers and hun­dreds of new sales.

The GREAT news is that it DOES work.  It’s been proven again and again that a huge piece of today’s mar­ket­ing IS social media mar­ket­ing.  The pri­ma­ry ben­e­fits are:  Increased expo­sure, increased traf­fic, mar­ket­place insight, lead gen­er­a­tion, devel­op­ing loy­al fans, improved search rank­ings (SEO), busi­ness part­ner­ship growth, reduced mar­ket­ing expens­es and increased sales.
