Prevailing Notion Social Media Is “Free” Marketing<br />“Unlimited Social Media and Digital Marketing Opportunities are available at little to no direct cost…”<br /><ul><li>Significant time and attention
Continual Time v Benefit evaluation</li></ul>Social Media sites should be evaluated based on objective criteria and the results they deliver. The value of what the dealer gets back is then reduced by the cost of the time (labor) required to manage various tasks and work flows. Dealers have access to virtually unlimited Social Media Marketing Opportunities which are available without direct media buying expense… <br />But are they free? Only if your time has no value! When the true value of your time is factored in, there are still many ROI positive opportunities, but there are also Social Media sites that become “Black Holes of Time” and should be cut from the maintenance roster!”<br />
