  23. 23. Listen Up! “There’s a real cost to ignoring the conversation.” Paul Worthington, Fast Company Magazine “We live in a conversation driven world. Even if your brand is not an active user of social media, your customers and potential customers are. This is revolutionizing the way brands have to think about themselves and how they choose to compete. In a conversation driven world, the real threat is not conversation itself, but commoditization. Unless customers have reason to talk, they wont. And a brand that generates little or no conversation will be killed by one that does.” www.marketingsavant.comThe MarketingSavant Group 888.989.7771

  30. 30. Create PAGES NOT PROFILES Facebook Says: • Facebook profiles are meant to represent a single individual. Organizations of any type are not permitted to maintain an account under the name of their organization. We have created Facebook Pages to allow organizations to have a presence on Facebook. These Pages are distinct presences, separate from user profiles, and optimized for an organization’s needs to communicate, distribute information/content, engage their fans, and capture new audiences virally through their fan’s recommendations to their friends. Facebook Pages are designed to be a media rich, valuable presence for any artist, business or brand. • If you create a profile for your business, your account may be disabled for violating our Terms of Use. If you have questions about how to best leverage your Facebook Page, please check out our Insider’s Guide or FAQ. www.marketingsavant.comThe MarketingSavant Group 888.989.7771
