3. Go Beyond Facebook and Twitter – “Most big business marketers wouldn’t know what to do in a small company with no staff, budget, mass-media advertising, or big brand name to save them. It’s easy to manage or grow social media accounts for large companies. But it’s extremely difficult to transcend those networks and get the whole organization aligned with how your consumers shop today.”
