25 Responses to Mari Smith Talks iPad & Some False Ideas of Social Media Marketing

    I love Mari Smith. I met her on Twitter (to address @elscb ). I actually have met many people who I wouldn’t have had access to in any other way on Twitter and FaceBook. We have developed relationships as business people and have connected each other with our peeps reciprocally.

    THAT is the way to make social marketing work for you. You can’t just “tweet” and hope that God’s flood gates will open. You have to actually ‘talk’ to people.

    Thanks, for the vid, Travis!

    Thanks for the insights.

    It really seems strange to me that so many alleged “business people” think that one component or another of these albeit amazing internet tools are going to magically propel them into “auto pilot” fame and fortune.

    Not much good is going to happen without putting the time and effort in to create, maintain, and continue to build on, and grow any business concept (where you sell useful products and services).

    All of these really cool tools are simply

    I love connecting with like-minded people. Add me

    I like the idea of SM being a “spoke” in your overall marketing strategy. Just remember that all the “spokes” need to lead to one central and important hub of quality content! If there’s no content, the wheels fall off! Great interview…I learned some cool new terms and phrases today: “redical strategic visibility” and “grout your day with social media”. Thanks for sharing.

    I like it. Great interview. Many people know there is a way to build a list and make sales through social media but many don’t really know how. They expect it to convert as quick as PPC and other paid resources and don’t see that happening fast enough and start forcing it, looking spammy or they just quit. Relationships is what is key here. Great vid.

    Re social media: The points made are all good. As Ed Dale would say (after his late conversion) Facebook is really only for networking with your irl friends, but Twitter… well, I don’t know. It’s like joining in a great bit World conversation. Especially when something is happening, like the Iran election protests, the British Election or anything that interests a lot of people.

    I can really resonate with Mari’s outlook on Social Media.

  10. micaljohnson says:

    what Mari said about finding a balance really struck a cord with me. There are several levels of social media management. Some you can outsource some you shouldn’t. As a SMM myself I think finding the level of involvement you are comfortable with is key for your success. The more personal your brand the more engagement you need to be involved with.

    When you take the time to learn to use social media it will pay big dividend for you later as you grow your reputation online.

    Travis… As always great content… you are truly the BEST.Amazing video love what you are doing, great interview and as always Mari is wonderful…
    You are both so GORGEOUS 🙂
    I dont think that people realize that you CAN make incredible money in social media,but there are no short cuts, its always about building powerful relationships,+ give powerful content., and not only focusing on making money…There are no short cuts when it comes to building trust to get people to buy from you

    @elsbc (wiping off your throw up)… It is what you want it to be Eric. I don’t want to be in bondage any more than the next person, and that’s the idea behind this video, how are leaders in SM succeeding with it? Find the balance for your business, but be there if for no other reason than branding.

    Thanks for chiming in,
    Travis

    @GreyStormMedia Agreed. Customer service is the #1 marketing tool a company has to customers.

    @Orcidea Greetings to you my friend in Finland! Glad to hear of your leadership there.

    Keep it real,

  15. marketingprofessor says:

    @SIRTONY On it (the best I can)… That’s the challenge with spur of the moment stuff, which I’m guilty of from time to time.

    @TheMomoZone You’re not so bad your self Momo!

  17. marketingprofessor says:

    @WCBusinessCoach Thanks for mentioning that. We need to be realistic what a given online property (other than our own) can offer to our business.

    Regards,
    Travis

  18. marketingprofessor says:

    @Coolwater102 Agree with you there. Brand building is the best asset of social media. Sales and SEO results are a bonus.

  19. marketingprofessor says:

    @brianinski Wow. Awesome feedback. Was the best I had at the moment. Will try harder to avoid shearing and all the other gunk… 🙂 Work in progress.

    Thanks again,
    Travis

    @Onlinemediadirect There will always be another version coming, right? I think if you see it making sense for your workstyle, do it sooner than later.

  22. marketingprofessor says:

    @millionairesworldbiz Thanks.

  23. marketingprofessor says:

    @visualeyemedia Thanks for your candid yet kind feedback. I will consider your points. Glad you found value in what was discussed.

    -Travis

    I really enjoyed the interview and conversation. Great natural flow, and you did asked good questions. If I could offer some constructive advice… the annotations were a little distracting and didn’t add value to the content for me. This was my first time ever seeing your video so I had no idea that you may have worn a pocket protector in the past… Maybe you could use the annotations to add tips that you couldn’t fit in the interview. Just my two cents.

    Again, great job.
