    Hey Courtney,

    I love the positivity in this article. Incredibly sharp insights about how to be useful as a “Social Media Expert” or whatever title may come next. I’ll certainly be referencing this frequently to ensure I haven’t lost sight of what matters and am perpetually evolving. Can’t wait for future posts and to be in a position to use RavenTools again in the future!

    Thanks, Rob! That’s SO awesome to hear. And yes, do drop me a line when you take Raven for a spin again in the future!

    Great post Courtney! In 5 years it won’t be called social media… it will just be called “media”. Gonna share this around my team.

    Cheers

    Thanks, Jason! You summarized my thoughts perfectly with your comment! :)

    I think social media today is much like SEO was just a few years ago. There is no real barrier to entry and anyone can call themself an expert/guru/maven with no one to stop them. As the industry matures those with real skills and real value rise to the top and the noise makers fall away.

    Ha! Words to live by. :)

    You’re absolutely right. The process many not be painless, but it will most likely do what needs to be done.
