Word of mouth marketing, buzz marketing, influencer marketing. You know the buzzwords maybe more than you want to. You want people talking about you and your brand.
However, you hopefully want business results even more!
Generating social media buzz is good. However, the key is being able to create buzz that helps you deliver real business results.
Buzz without bucks will not pay your team salaries, the office rent or the monthly subscriptions for all of those social media tools you are using to create all that fancy buzz.
Creating buzz without a plan to achieve results is equivalent to creating buzz in a social media vacuum where you just suck up the opportunity of success in a loud funnel of noise and mess.
The question is are you generating buzz that leads to bucks? Or are you generating buzz wishing you had more bucks?

I’ll take all the buzz I can get but you make a good point and obviously all the buzz in the world doesn’t do a lot of good if your intent is to make money. Then again, Kim Kardashian built a career out of buzz she got before she had a way to monetize it so we can always add ways to capitalize on the buzz after it starts.
True story @hughbriss:disqus . All depends on your goals and objectives. If your only goal is to become rich & famous then yes, buzz will help get you there. However, for most of us normal folk, we need a little planning and proper execution along the way. ;)
First time and here BAM! Great one @PamMktgNut:disqus! Definitely got me back for more.
