Why you should not partake in social media

As often as we advocate how important social media is an integral part for businesses. There are also times we want to advise why a company MAY NOT want to get involved in social media now.

Jeff Bullas explains with the 20 reasons…

  1. You are a traditionalist and value the “good old days”
  2. You don’t want to be found
  3. You don’t want to be heard
  4. You have shares in the “Yellow Pages”
  5. You like spending thousands on media you can’t measure
  6. You highly value your perceived privacy
  7. You don’t want to hear what your customers are saying
  8. You don’t want any new customers as you are already too busy
  9. You’re afraid people might say nasty things about you
  10. You want to give your competition a head start
  11. It’s a waste of your valuable time
  12. Because its only a fad and it will go away
  13. I like to keep things simple and it’s all a bit complex with Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn and all that stuff
  14. I am a real person and I don’t believe in those fake online social networks
  15. Social media sites are largely populated with people who have nothing better to do with their time
  16. Social media is at an evolutionary stage I will wait until it is more mature
  17. I don’t want to be overexposed
  18. If I subscribe or join I will be spammed
  19. There is something better around the corner, I can afford to wait
  20. Social media will reduce real face to face opportunities because I would waste my time online
