Measure the Success

One of the common mistakes of businesses who use social media is that they already think many people will flock to their stores or go online because they can be seen in the social media sites.

People behind the Scenes

The last thing that one has to consider is the people that will take care of the social media sites. They are the ones who will monitor and see if the campaign is successful.
