BJ Murphy 360 Podcast

Although small businesses and non-profits will be disadvantaged, BJ demonstrates how they can improve their competitive position.
While discussing personal branding with a client, BJ pointed out that a crucial step in the process is to ensure that your target audience gets to know about you and what you have to offer. Understandably, the conversation turned to the effectiveness of email, texting, and Facebook messaging, which begs the question…is email dead?

Why would followers keep coming back to your Facebook page if all they see is "Buy this" or "We're selling that"? We need to start adding more value to people's experiences with our pages. This will lead to brand ambassadors for your business or cause...much more likely than "buy, buy, buy".
