If simply posting and automating is all you had to do to maximize success in social media, there would be no such thing as social media experts or conferences. This episode of the podcast wouldn't even need to exist.
While social media does take more effort today, most of that effort should be something you want to do anyway - communicate with your audience and build relationships with them. Not to mention, platforms are developing new ways to communicate through audio and video. They've made it easier than it was ten years ago.
Christine Gritmon is a brand consultant, social media trainer, and speaker tasked with developing Social Media Pulse - an extensive online community for social media managers, experts, insiders, and more.
She joins us today to discuss what it means to give more and get more out of social media.
