Social media needs a goal

October 9, 2008

Period. That’s it.

If you don’t have a goal, don’t even start. It would be like hiring builders to build your house and then walking away and letting them put the master bedroom in a room next to the kitchen because it’s a cool new thing to do.

For a year I’ve been spouting on this blog that social media is many things, but mostly, it’s a tool in the marketers tool box.

It’s not about conversations, communities, fans or friends. And yet maybe it is. Because it’s about goals. And the patient plan to acheive them.
