My Favourite Shirt

Posted: Monday, April 15, 2013 at 2:15:51 PM EST by Richard Norris

Like many people, I have a favourite shirt.

I wear it more often than any other of my shirts, I like the colours, it fits well and I look awesome in it (if I don't say so myself). I am wearing it as I am writing this post.

Although, this particular shirt hasn't always been my favourite shirt. I have had numerous favourite shirts in fact. As time has changed, I have grown in size and my taste in clothes has changed. Therefore, my favourite shirt has changed.

The point is, I wouldn't know that this shirt would be my favourite shirt unless I tried it on and, obviously, bought it.

Social media can be a daunting subject for some people. Just because of its importance to business in this technology based aged doesn't mean it is simple.

However, just as I had to try on my shirt and buy it for it to be my favourite, social media may be the same.

Social media may be your favourite form of marketing or even your favourite business tool. But how would you know that it is your favourite unless you tried it on.

Social media could be the worst thing you put your hands on, but the point is that unless you try you will never know.

I wasn't sure if I liked my favourite shirt as it hung on the hanger in the shop. It wasn't until I tried it on that I started to fall in love with this shirt.

Are you willing to risk missing out on all that social media can offer your business because you're not sure about it?
Or would you rather try it on and see what happens?

To see a photo of my favourite shirt, leave a comment below. The more comments the higher the chance of me showing the photo.

Thanks for your comment Richard. Social Media doesn't have to be a scary thing. If the correct plan is put in place you will get through and more importantly be yourself. Yes people want like you but guess what. There are people out there that already don't like you. But most of the people you interact with do like you. The same as social media. People want 'like' you if they don't like you. People want 'tweet' you if they don't get along with you.

Josh, I am with Cam, In fact I was at a meeting only this morning with a lady who was initially hostile to the whole social media idea only a couple of months ago. I remember having a long conversation with her explaining the possible benefits to her business with the eventual conclusion that she was going to "give it a go" Well, at our meeting today , she was a convert. Enthusiastically explaining to me how well her Facebook business page is doing and just how much customer engagement she is now getting....So your point is well made 'Give it a go' Cheers Richard

Not sure I WANT to see your Favourite shirt! However I have proven several times now that by answering a Tweet live and linking the Tweeter back to target-relevant information on our site results in double the number of people on our site in 120 seconds!! I did that live for an audience recently and showed them how many we had viewing our web by showing them the Admin side of our SiteZero site. I then replied to a Tweet and showed the audience the effect - double the numbers and all looking at the URL I tweeted. Now, off to my wardrobe to find my Twitter shirt. Darn can't find it. Cam
