Pinterest Statistics

Pinterest has taken the Internet by storm with millions of people “pinning” everything from pictures of their pets to their favorite recipes. What I find interesting and equally important is that Pinterest “boards” are now showing up in the Google search engine results pages.

[Social Media] Social Media Is Not Free

Social media marketing, like all things related to your Internet marketing, takes time and effort. It also takes a fair amount of precision “know how.” Throwing just any words on your Facebook wall, or posting from time to time compared to a consistent effort, is not going to do anything for your business.

[Social Media] Social Media Is Not a “Magic Bullet”

Social media marketing, using Facebook, Twitter, Google+, FourSquare, Stumbleupon (and there is a very long list) isn’t a quick fix for anything. Social media marketing, except in very, VERY rare cases, does not deliver significant results quickly. It’s not a magic bullet, but social media can deliver a powerful ROI and compliment your other marketing efforts when done correctly and effectively long-term.
