Jay Baer, Founder of Convince & Convert, and Adam Brown, Executive Strategist at Salesforce, discuss how social media has changed in the past year and give predictions for the coming year.
It’s Time to Dive Deep
In the ever-evolving world of social media, there is one thing that is certain: it’s not going anywhere. There are more platforms available than ever before and more ways to reach your audience through each of them.
The standard strategy has been to build at least some presence on each of them, but as the pool widens, it seems that the smartest idea is to strategically choose just a couple of platforms that resonate the most with your audience and dive deep. While there are certainly users who keep up with multiple platforms, each one has a specific style and form of content in which it specializes.
By prioritizing the kind of content that serves your target audience the best, you can focus your efforts on areas in which you naturally excel rather than spreading thin across avenues that likely have minimal effect on building your brand.
In This Episode
- How ephemeral content has developed and changed the social landscape over the past year
- How simplifying the user interface can create a drastic shift in demographics for a social media platform
- Why video has become one of the essential tools for social media marketing
- How the world of social media could shift in the coming year
- Why it’s better to go more in-depth on a couple of social channels rather than trying to build a presence on all channels

“We need to have social sommeliers. Just like a wine sommelier pairs the right food with the right wine, we need to make sure we’re using fewer social platforms and pick one or two that are really most important for our brand.” — @adamcb
