Social Media: expectations, speeches and results

with one comment

In this article, Brian Carroll, from B2B Lead group, was dealing with “the disconnection between the expectations of marketers who are out on the frontlines every day and marketing gurus proclaiming the wonders of social media“.

Why, (…), are so many marketers dissatisfied with the results they’re getting from it?

Some explanations:

  • today, the web is considered traditional media and social media is now that new ‘fad.’ The same thing is happening all over again, except at a much faster pace
  • marketers are expecting way too much too soon
  • We can’t yet calculate with the most exacting precision how many leads are generated from social media, but considering how quickly technology is evolving, the ability to do so will be here in no time
