That is a serious question that would be met with eye-rolls. "Who is your Social Media
If you are silly enough to conduct your business on social media, you better have a seasoned representative on duty 24/7. If not, you are negligent and, much worse!
I don't need to know squat about Social Media to point out the important pitfalls as well as opportunities. But a strategy is key. Having a personality is key. Having someone totally competent is key. A warm body will put you outta business.
It's all common sense. Common business sense. Common sales sense. Common sense not to be lazy. There is always time for lazy once things are set. I am living proof. You have to come and identify each and every element or elements lacking if you expect long term success.

But hey, the Internet is the Intersection of the smartest, the dumbest and the most foolish. Those groups don't play well with each other as is on display 24/7.
Ever think of producing a book on your collective knowledge of all things related to a successful internet business? I think it would be a winner.
Don’t steal my idea from the other day. It was the first comment too.
Just noticed your domain. That’s a really good one.
The heat map was a craze when we, bloggers tried to maximize our earnings from Google Adsense. Like what you say, Rick, we then realized how important a role, our ad placement and colors play in click conversion. Those were the good ol days. Now, dumb and greedy people really destroyed the good things for themselves and others by over optimizing ads. Now on, we have to contend with the rise of adblockers. Yeah, life as an online knight is indeed hard, no room for laziness.
