Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - Don't Try to Be All Things to All Customers

« How to Prepare Your Subject Matter Experts for New Media Interviews | Main | Your Service is Content »


Great advice and it applies in so many ways. With my own blog for example, some of the advice I've received is, it's your personal blog, write whatever you want, just add a different category. I disagree, and am trying to continually keep it more focused on using social media to grow your business. Most of my traffic is passers-by, and I feel that the more consistently focused my posts are, the better my chances of attracting subscribers interested in that topic. A challenge though as I feel I must narrow it down even further, since there are an awful lot of people blogging about the value of social media to small business.

Thanks for sharing. This is really a good post. It is really true to not try pleasing everybody, that path leads to ruin. Be original and be yourself.

I think the jury ma still be out on Google. I'm seeing a lot of activity, and a lot of discussions about the potential cons of this activity in terms of what got the company to where it is today.

Specifically, there is a conversation around content farms and how Google (busy launching all kinds of products at the moment )needs to take notice that is getting pretty lively recently. That hits the company and its search model right at the core.
