Its one big party and you are invited!
All you have to be is Social and not talk about yourself or #SELL. Ironic, but yes, not bragging about yourself will actually get your business from social media marketing and social networking. Remember, there is a big difference between them both.
Social campaigns are not a place to brag about your brand or how cool you are. No one cares. What people do care about is if you are:
1. Truly social and friendly
3. Have something relevant to say
4. Build relationships
5. Share and are generous in sharing quality content
6. Be yourself, be personal
7. Most of all #STOP SELLING YOURSELF
