  3. 3. Social Media Con 1: It takes time to learn how to use social media.<br />Facebook, Twitter, SumbleUpon, Digg, YouTube, and all other social media websites all require a certain amount of time to learn the product.<br />For example: StumbleUpon is a super easy to use marketing method that almost 90% of Tampa SEO‘s customers have never tried out – but it could be valuable to each and every one of them!<br />
  4. 4. Social Media Con 2: Reporting is challenging, if not impossible.<br />To date, Tampa SEO has not found a really good social media reporting suite that encompasses everything we’d look for in a reporting system.  Knowing entreprenuers, we only give it a matter of time until the reporting systems catch up.<br />

  9. 9. Social Media Con 5: Social media marketing is like pushing a car.<br />At first, you put all of your energy behind you and it starts to move<br />Eventually, you’re only giving it minimal pushes to keep the momentum going<br />With social media, you need to put a ton of energy and resources into it<br />You will slowly start to gain speed.  After some time, you’ll have what Tampa SEO likes to call the “snowball” effect of social media.  That’s the end goal<br />
