The problem with Facebook and Twitter is they are both time consuming for small business owners. I get up early to Tweet using my businesses account, but after that, I'm done with social media for the day. I've got work to do.

Excellent point. "Got work to do" is the operative phrase. What I intend to prove by this is that social media can fit into your workflow and serve as an adjunct channel to help you market your business.

With the advent of the mobile web thanks to tools like the iPhone, Blackberry and others, it's easier now than ever to do that.

I love this post, love the optimism, and I very much agree with what you said. I don't have your book yet, but I'm looking forward to reading it!

Paul - Great post. I agree Social Media does work for small businesses. I also agree with you that it needs to be incorporated into the daily workflow. It is a form of marketing and connecting with your current and future customers. Build a connection and you will reap rewards.

Paul Chaney

Incorporating it into the daily workflow is key to be sure. Figuring out just how to do that is the hard part. It's still such a curiosity to many.
