That Answers the “Is Social Media Dead” Question

Here’s the thing… None of those “_____ is dead” statements are really ever true. Basically anyone telling you that something is dead is trying to tell you that something else is better and very likely they have a course to sell you that shows you how to use that “something else”.

When it comes to social media for network marketing, the fact is that it’s as alive, if not more alive than ever before.

The truth is that the internet is growing each and everyday. More and more people are getting online and a great deal of them flock straight to sites like Twitter, or Facebook, or any of the others. So basically the more people there are within this medium of advertising, the more alive it is.

Now certain methods within social media might die out. SPAMMING the heck out of them died almost right away. People will always abuse a good thing. That seems to be human nature. But when you, as a marketer and network marketing professional, learn to adapt strategies then you remain ahead of the curve. This keeps the medium alive, at least for you. Hopefully those spamming and using dubious marketing methods will die out (not literally of course).

That means biting the bullet and sharing things other than your own stuff. That’s what giving value is about. It takes time to get your footing but learning the skills of effective social media marketing is one of the best pieces of
