So you think social media is the hottest new things since some genius discovered the internet. You probably also think that this is going to give your business a breath of life.
You could be right. In a way.
In as much as social media can help improve the business’ visibility on the web, it’s not right to say that it’s the reason behind your company’s chances of surviving these tough times.
Even though social media can impact your business in such a way that you can profit from it, it’s you who should take the credit.
Although it’s true that social media tools give you the opportunity to shake things up to your advantage, nothing will happen unless you act on that opportunity.
It is you who took the leap of faith to use social media.
It is you who will shake things up using social media.
Even though social media is the tool for change, it is you who make those changes happen. And before you start giving all the praise to social media for the improvement you see on your business, don’t shortchange yourself of credit because you made it happen.
You may not have invented social media, but you were the one who took social media and used it to change things.
Care to agree or disagree? I’d like to hear your thoughts on this matter.
