On No Budget? Forget About Easy Facebook Success

Hello Wendy. This sounds like a great success story, well done! Like I said in the article, I'm not dropping the axe on Facebook, and it does still offer great opportunities for any organisation etc that people have an affinity for or that produce something that solves a problem. Have you ever written this case up as a case-study?

On No Budget? Forget About Easy Facebook Success

Hi Anna, thanks for that. I'm always honest about the opportunities and limitations of the social platforms, there is no 'silver bullet' for any of them.

On No Budget? Forget About Easy Facebook Success

Thanks Ulli. Great poing re format, anything visual tend to have a much stronger reach and interaction rate. It sounds like you've had success growing a fanbase! Have you noticed this tailing off at all?

On No Budget? Forget About Easy Facebook Success

Hi Randy. Yes that is a pretty major issue - my post talks about Facebook from a brand's perspective, but as a standard user, the experience is moving further away from the fundamementals of the platform - allowing us to communicate with our friends, families etc.

But why would people buy the product? By all accounts it stinks. If they sorted that, made sales and impressed people, then yes, I can see them doing ok out of this.

On Can You Recover from an Amy's Bakery Style Social Media Meltdown?

I totally get that, my main concern is that they have shown themselves to be pretty nasty people and people don't like to do business with horrible people. I actually think they should take a big slice of that money that comes through the door from people wanting to see the circus in action and give it to charity. That would help.

If they get people visiting the restaurant just to see the circus and perhaps turn them round into happy customers, they may be ok. So much work and apologising to do.

On Common Ways "Social Media Experts" Gamble With Your Money

Great post Brad. Particularly like the part about not using too many platforms. People get so caught up in the hype around the latest platforms and then panic that they must be there! I wrote about that very thing on my blog this morning.
