Social Media Pubcast by Jon Loomer

Pop a bottle! Here's this week's show notes:

2 Year Retrospective

* Beginning to Now

* First post: Why I started my Facebook Page. 

* Virtually no engagement the first month.

* First year-plus, experienced some solid growth.

* It wasn’t until this year — Beginning in July — when my business truly took off on Facebook.

* Lesson: 1) Don’t Quit. 2) Build an audience through providing value. 3) Sell is final step, not first. 4) INVEST — time and money for positive ROI


Debate: Facebook is a waste of money

* Forrester report

* An open letter to Mark Zuckerberg

* Survey of 395 marketers

* Satisfaction average score of 3.54 out of 5.0 -> Last. First was on-site ratings and reviews with 3.84.

* 16% Reach Complainers. Ugh.

* Jamie Turner: 60SecondMarketer: The Truth About Facebook Ads: They Don’t Actually Work

* More than 1Million advertisers. High number of newbies

* Many have it all wrong. How many are building trust and a community? How many just sell?

* Don’t approach Facebook like banner advertising

* Equivalent of passing out fliers or cold calling

* How many are using Custom Audiences, Lookalike Audiences, Power Editor, Conversion Tracking?
