In this video, Jay offers social media tips to help businesses succeed.

You’ll learn why Jay talks of “Noah’s ark” in social media and why Twitter and Facebook are not a social media strategy. He shares a wealth of information. Be sure to see the other takeaways below.


Some key takeaways:

  • Twitter is a “tools strategy” not a “social media strategy”
  • You need to “be social” and not “do social”
  • Build a social media playbook with key players in your company
  • Figure out what is being said about you and where
  • Creating content is the future (especially video), bypassing traditional media
  • Location-based social media will be hot in next 18 months
  • Yelp has added checkin’s to their app for authenticity
  • Facebook metrics can be better than Google Analytics
  • Facebook should be part of your sales funnel
  • Email can have a social component
