John M. Collard, Chairman, Strategic Management Partners, Inc. www.StrategicMgtPartners.com
has joined the social media networking momentum on the Internet.
Mr. Collard said, "These are changing times for the way we all communicate. Technology and younger generations have had a major influence on the way people exchange ideas on the Web today. Social Media is the buzz-word of the day. We have joined this new means of outreach to expand our marketing distribution channels."
Collard continued, "I was recently told by a trusted collegue that we are still doing marketing the old fashioned way, by maintaing a web site, and by sending email news pieces and mail promotions to our clients and potential referral sources. This is marketing by interuption he called it. Social Media is a better way." "Interesting, I replied. Help me understand how Social Media, which requires people to find me, is more efficient than targeting them? Or better yet, a combination of both methods? After a period of silence, I concluded that utilizing Social Media outlets to augment our marketing efforts was a sensible overall strategy. After all, the key seems to be that the search engines, which now include Social Media sites, must find you before your clients can find you."
