About Rick Mulready
Rick runs "The Inside Social Media Podcast!" It's the show where you’ll learn secrets, insights and strategies from heads of social media from the most successful brands in the world. And, how you can grow your own business by modeling their success with little to no budget.

Rubber-Meets-The-Road Tip

Focus on where your audience is.

  • Focus on one to a few platforms. 
  • Business owners are overwhelmed but you don’t have to be everywhere.
  • You really should customize your content for each social media platform. Don't just create one post and blast it out with an aggregator.

How to figure out where you audience is...

  • Ask. Survey them.
  • Google Alerts and Mention.net. All have good search features so you can listen and then insert yourself.
  • Be a human being online. Be sociable.
  • Have a page and a profile on Facebook but be personal on your business page.
  • Website custom audience. It’s a form of retargeting. Reach of free Fan Pages is going down so you will have to pay to play on Facebook.
  • Just jump in and start learning. You control your budget.
  • If you need to sell you need to leverage email marketing with social media.
  • It’s harder to sell outright on Facebook.
