Yes +Kim Garst! All this efficiency comes with a price. Without frequent, genuine and rich interaction with the people in your life working towards shared outcomes something very meaningful is lost.

Hugs and handshakes are what make us human and they are in many ways a part of what makes doing what we do worth it.

One of the questions I get asked most is, “What do I share on social media?”.  When you’re committed to consistently and actively using social media for your business, it’s easy for the so-called ‘idea well’ to dry up from time to time. Here are some ideas to get you moving!

Yes, some very good points there! I believe it can be all too easy to reduce people to items, I know many people who are brazen in an email and yet shrink before knocking on a real person's door, where we have to address a real human.

Like it! It reaffirms why social media for the small to mid size firms, has always been and shall remain one of the best places to gain exposure for great content.

Great & informative post as usual +Kim Garst. I would just like to mention that the SM managers at TGIF have been using one of the ways: 'tweet a selfie with your order' strategy for years. I have seen them use it for over two years with a good amount of success as they offer discounts and freebies to tweeters. Even Burger King has used a similar strategy before.

For my money, if you're only going to track one metric when it comes to using social media for your business, it should be engagement. What say you?

Engagement means that people took an extra step and moved closer to exploring your product or idea.

My son, who is a Freshman at FCGU and has no experience with getting his oil changed just texted me and asked me if it's normal to pay $120 for an oil change. I, of course, said NO! But that is exactly what happened. This Jiffy Lube takes advantage of students who do not know any better and charges $120 for a regular oil change. DISGRACEFUL!
