Social Media: Stop Faking it Until You Make It!

Services for Real Estate Pros with Marketing Nutz, LLC

Should you fake it until you make it? You can hear my answer to this question in this episode of the Social Zoom Factor podcast.

Just as we think social media, marketing and business leaders were finally starting to “get it” in regard to the foundation ofsocial media being about human connection, relationships, authenticity, there seems to be a new wave of cheaters, influence score addicted, self proclaimed “gurus” ready to risk their reputation, business, client relationships, integrity and more for a few hundred or tens of thousands fake Facebook fans or Twitter followers.

What is even more disappointing is that these are the exact same people who are tweeting, speaking, training and preaching about the importance of being real, nurturing real relationships and how to build and ignite a human social brand.

There are industry thought leaders setting up fake accounts that advocate for themselves and troll others all over the web.

I believe these things are one big fat social elephant in the room that we all must no longer tolerate. Ignoring it is not going to make it go away.
