Your audience is crucial to your marketing efforts!

Seems obvious but it is amazing how often the audience get left out of a company’s social media efforts.

Social media is a conversation with your audience.

    Wow, there is so much to think about in that blog post. Indeed, while business owners can do the research, I do think there needs to be a couple of heads bouncing against each other to ensure their message is delivered with the appropriate tone, message, content, appeal etc because it can be very easy to be too close and not be analytical enough. Lots of food for thought there.

    I agree with Lorna. A lot of very useful information and a reminder to stay tuned to your blog and readers. I love the name ‘write on track’…well done!
