My Grass Is No Greener Than Your Grass

Watched a video the other day, presented by Jeff Turner of Real Estate Shows, on the idea that what works for me in the social media world might not work for you in the same way. It was interesting visual, at least for me, and I wanted to share it here. Thanks to Jeff for being so free with his material!

I like my grass. But I don’t take care of it, my homeowner’s association does it for me. That works for me – I get the benefit of having a lawn (granted about 1000 square feet of lawn, but lawn nonetheless) without the work. A friend of mine, though, has a couple of acres of lawn. Almost every day after work, he can be found outside doing something in the yard – aerating, fertilizing, or cutting, for hours on end. Both lawns look nice, but we took different approaches to get there.

Social media’s the same way. You can put a little time into it, or a lot of time into it. Whatever you do, make it work for you, and not for anyone else.  It’s your grass.

    Agreed – I’m a little too busy lately to devote as much time as I’d like to social media, but I do think Bob’s plan won’t work for Suzy. It’s a personality and objectives thing, and everyone has their own personality and objectives.

    So take those objectives, and throw them away.

    Seriously … use your personality to engage and guide, and the objectives will form themselves.

    Good luck
