035: Social Media Launch Strategies for Startups, Entrepreneurs, Mobile Application Providers, Corporations
I am simply shocked at how many startups, small business owners, entrepreneurs and even marketers in large corporations wait until the last minute before launching their business or product to market to implement social media marketing strategies and tactics.
We have all seen them. They hop on Twitter the day before or day of launch throwing nothing but social spaghetti and spam on the walls of influencers, begging for clicks, plays, downloads, shares and everything in between.
There is not a day that goes by that I don't wake up to an inbox filled with spam web forms begging me to share info graphics, videos and the list goes on. My Twitter feed is filled with beggars spamming links to apps and software that they are confident will take over Facebook in the next 30 days.
What these lazy marketers don't realize is that they are doing their brand more harm than good. It is obvious they don't understand the social ecosystem of which they have barged into blasting nothing but noise.
Two of the top reasons marketing and business leaders fail to achieve a positive ROI when investing and integrating social media into their business and marketing plans is they are unprepared and they are impatient.
You will get out of social media, business and life what you put into it. If you take time to nurture relationships that are authentic and real, invest in the empowerment of human beings and provide content that is valuable and relevant to your audience, your results will be exponentially higher.

Included are solid tips for building an influencer marketing strategy, developing and integrated platform to zoom results and much more.
