Time Consuming Pac-Man Social Media

To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Pac-Man, last month Google changed their home page to a working game of Pac-Man for the public to enjoy.  This week I read that this little change cost society $120,483,800 in lost productivity.  That is a crazy number to me that one little game placement can be that distracting or fun or time-consuming.

This little social experiment reminds me a lot of social media marketing.  Social media marketing can be a very effective means of promotion and advertising.  But, social media can also be a time-suck if you aren’t careful.  There are constantly new interesting tools coming out on the market.  There are interesting social media news sites to read about new trends.  There are social networks to interact with potential customers, but these social networks are the same social networks where your personal friends hang out.  If you are not careful, hours and hours can be spent attempting to do social media marketing.

For the previous reasons, it can make a lot of sense to hire an Internet Marketing firm to conduct social media for your business.  Good Internet Marketing companies know the tools that work, know the places to look for links, and can help you navigate through the “busy” world of social media.  If you need help with your companies social media marketing, please contact us.
