July’s Social Pros know the value of delivering good content on social media. And owning that content is the only way to make sure you don’t get caught by copyright issues or changing rules and regulations on social media platforms. While you’re at it, you might even want to develop your own social platform to avoid dealing with the changing rules and regulations on today’s social media platforms.
This month’s Social Pros come together across industries and areas of expertise to give two pieces of advice that might be hard to hear: when it comes to content, you have to give it away for free; when it comes to social, you have to pay to play.
May’s Social Pros guests understand the importance of customer support on social media. Companies who are committing seriously to customer support on social media are reaping the benefits. Companies who aren’t responding to customer requests and issues on social media are suffering. It’s that simple.
April’s Social Pros come from three countries: Canada, the Netherlands, and the U.S. Between them, they’ve studied law, theology, film & TV, mechanical engineering, and performing arts. Their responsibilities span from leading a social media team of over 150 to designing yo-yos. They each have a piece of advice for us: embrace mistakes, set goals, listen, and interact.
March’s guests on the Social Pros podcast come from for profit and non-profit companies and varied experiences and backgrounds. Despite their differences, they all recognize the importance of giving to get when it comes to social media.
