Last weekend I had the privilege of attending Blogworld, Los Angeles and watched some of my favorites in the Social Media landscape speak on their strengths. During the event, I asked some of my wonderful friends if they had any questions for two of my favorite social media experts, Mari Smith and Michael Stelzner. Mari Smith is one of the top Facebook and Relationship Marketing Experts around. Today we answer two questions that were narrowed down from Carol “The How2Girl” Dodsley and Keith”Ask The Tipster” Everett for Mari Smith.
I am here at Blogworld in Los Angeles. I just finished a session listening to Michael and I have to say that social media is so simple yet so hard. Hard because the simple feels more complicated then it is. One simple hardfast rule in Social Media is focus on the audience. Focus on what they need and what you can do for them. Such a simple task, yet difficult for some reason to execute-Because it takes patience for a return. It takes a bit of faith. When you can provide that help, that faith is so transparent that people will reciprocate that help. Nothing and no one is too small.
