I’m of the opinion the job classification of Social Media Manager is well on the way to being main stream: I’ve heard “Director of Emerging Media” and similar phrasing.

15-20 years ago desktop computers “put secretaries out of work”, now they can’t get a job without MS works skills/ MS Excell skills/ Quickbooks skills/ and email skills

Pretty soon the receptionist job will be an executive position rather than one up from the mail room. Someone’s got to answer the twitter and the Facebook and that person has GOT TO BE ON THE BALL

10 yrs ago every company needed an IT department.. they just didn’t know it at the time, now no company can function without either an in house IT solution or contract out for IT support.

SEO and Social Media Marketing is right now where IT support once was.. every company needs this.. they just don’t know it yet

There are a high number of real estate agents is utilizing SEO and Social Media Marketing Skills due to the fact that real estate agents have “caught on”, come to the realization that SEO and Social Media Marketing is a full time profession… they will quickly die on the vine if they do not get a handle on this. Soon other genres will see the writing on the wall.

Below is an exchange between me and a Fan of my Frederick Web Promotions Facebook Page

Sean Mulgrew I wondered what those twitter lists were all about, so Google can see them? I’m beginning to realize half of the reason we bother with social stuff is so Google can see us

Frederick Web Promotions You got it… we’re leaving money on the table if we’re doing social media with social media only in mind: Kill 2 birds with one stone, Google can see most of these social signals, it’s half the reason for doing all this marketing, probably the bigger half

Everyone knows what Facebook is. Your grandparents even have a Facebook page, chances are your customers have a facebook page… well the customers YOU want do. In terms of demographics, if a prospective customer has a Facebook page you know something about them, at a bare minimum you know they probably have a good job, probably are college educated, probably have a credit card

…do you really want to sell to people that do NOT have a credit card? What do you think your chances of making a profit would be if the customers you were attempting to attract did not have  credit, or didn’t have a job?

Not every industry can take full advantage of exposure to the vast Facebook community, the target market of  certain types of stores for example deal in what political correctness terms the “disaffected”, for example a local latin market or a beer and wine store in the seedier side of the tracks… it’s a safe bet their ‘money customers” aren’t on Facebook.  State highway contractors, for example get their work from Government bids, so being on Facebook doesn’t make much sense for them.

There are 2 main reasons for your company getting on Facebook:

One is obvious, the other not so obvious.

1) Access to the 300 million facebook users

2) The fact that Google Ranks Company Facebook Pages effectively giving you 2 listings in Google: one for your main website (which should be a blog, not a static website), the other Google listing is for your companies Facebook Fan Page.
