The new era of social media marketing for your business is not only coming, it has already arrived. Mark Babbit of YouTern believes that the core premise of his new book A World Gone Social – How Companies Must Adapt to Survive is that a new era, a new business climate, isn’t only coming, it is already here. The Social Age has pushed out what was left of the industrial age and created a marketing equaliser for all businesses. Mark was a guest on this episode of the Social Media for Small Business Podcast with Suzi Dafnis and Cat Matson. Mark Babbit explains the concepts behind ‘The Death of Large’ and the ‘Power of the Nano,’ as well as expressing how important social media is when engaging with your customers, stakeholders and employees. “The social age is the great equaliser. It doesn’t matter how small your business is or if your competitor has deeper pockets, social media allows everyone to compete and to compete well.” In this interview podcast, Mark Babbitt, author of A World Gone Social – How Companies Must Adapt to Survive explains why social media is like an asteroid that has slammed into the earth and will take out the businesses that are like dinosaurs.
