  13. 13. @RossHudgens However, if you’re in B2C, that may not be exciting news. @RossHudgens
  14. 14. How about Pinterest? Check out these stats from 2017. @RossHudgens
  15. 15. In 2018, Pinterest still seems strong. Facebook not so much. @RossHudgens
  16. 16. @RossHudgens If you’re in a meaningful B2C market, there’s no better time to focus your strategy on Pinterest. @RossHudgens

  26. 26. @RossHudgens@RossHudgens All that considered, the strategy to utilize for real, consistent growth is an obvious one.
  27. 27. @RossHudgens Leverage search as your “hub”.

  29. 29. @RossHudgens Leverage social media as your spokes.
  30. 30. @RossHudgens Leverage content aimed to rank on Google as peripheral social assets.
  31. 31. @RossHudgens The great content that supports social, will also support Google.
  32. 32. @RossHudgens From there, pivot the amount of effort you put into each network based on reach as things change.
  33. 33. @RossHudgens However, keep search and email as your core.. and it won’t matter if FB declines.
  34. 34. @RossHudgens@RossHudgens As social media practitioners, pivot your focus from “I create content for networks”.
  35. 35. @RossHudgens@RossHudgens Instead, think of yourself as a social content creator.
  36. 36. @RossHudgens@RossHudgens Today, even content on organic results feels like social content.
  37. 37. @RossHudgens We don’t hire “writers” even though we focus on SEO.
  38. 38. @RossHudgens@RossHudgens We hire people who can write punchy contant, but also get scannability & design best practices.
  39. 39. @RossHudgens@RossHudgens That sounds a lot like the atypical “Social Media Specialist” to me!
  40. 40. @RossHudgens Today’s marketer needs to be T-Shaped.
  41. 41. @RossHudgens You risk becoming irrelevant if you don’t build out your T.
  42. 42. @RossHudgens@RossHudgens Work off those, pivot to new networks, and your growth will look like this — for your career and business.
