    If you look carefully, this actually says nothing at all but simply states the obvious.

    I’m trying to encourage my organization to use more social media. I’m at the forefront in some ways by simply doing the basics. We have others interested who will open an account but then not really engage others. It is sad to see so many who are anti-social in a social context.

      Thanks for the comment Brian. Yes it is a challenge to involve the organisation in participating especially when there are generational issues. Aging baby boomers quite often don’t even understand the importance of a website.

    As you know Jeff, I find your site incredibly useful and insightful. I would, however disagree with point 3.

    There are still innumerable people and businesses who lack the skills to engage online effectively.

    They need an external source to help guide them. So it is not cost free, and even if they are willing to spend the time researching themselves; that is not free, there is the cost of their time spent doing this.

    Otherwise, another great post.

    Good article, but as @NatLanc commented, time investment can be substantial. However, if the time is spent learning the skills you will not only likely increase your effective marketing but you will be able to understand why and better replicate the results as well.
