Why Your Company Needs A Social Business Strategy

Andrew Grill talks about why you need a Social Business Strategy.

 

So impressed was I with a recent report from Altimeter group on Social Business titled “The evolution of social business – six stages of social business transformation”, that I decided to do a multi-part blog post. The first post can be viewed at lc.tl/asb1. In this second post, I am looking at the section of the report that looks at defining a social business strategy. The Altimeter report looked at 698 companies in medium-large sized companies, as well as deeper interviews with 26 executives and social strategists at 15 companies. The Altimeter definition of a social business strategy is the following: the set of visions, goals, plans, and resources that align social media initiatives with business objectives.

3 Greatest Myths about Owning a #Business

3 Greatest Myths about Owning a #Business | New Leadership | Scoop.it

When I was younger I wanted my own business, but I didn’t know how to begin. Should I buy a franchise, join a multi-level marketing company, or start my own business?

 

I went to seminars, presentations, and sales pitches on selling everything from milk additives to fuel additives, from soap to jewellery.

 

A lot of the presentations were very high-pressured. They were designed to get you to buy, sign, and commit. It was all about selling the dream of a life of leisure; you could live like a king and enjoy life without hard work. You could be different from the average Joe—no longer serving the man but living the dream.

 

Having started and run three successful businesses myself and spoken to hundreds of small business owners I can look back over 35 years and say, “Yep, that was definitely a bunch of crap!”

 

These are the three great myths:

this is truthful reality, nothing is easy in life, only if you work for it! Business are still necessary though in life and if you are able to manage it, it should be an alright way of income, same with any other job!

I have seen this all in action as most businesses in my town have closed down due to hard times!

So true! Yes, you do have to get real when you think about starting your own business. All those overnight successes you hear about, well, there are very few of them and with hindsight most people's idea of "overnight" tends to foreshorten over time!

 

Read and get real.
