So tell me what’s wrong with this picture. I got this email today:
If you’ve opened up foursquare in the last couple weeks you’ve probably noticed that we made a ton of changes. We re-imagined the entire app, Extreme Makeover style, to make it even easier for you and your friends to share and save your experiences and find new places to go. We also gave it plenty of design love and under-the-hood tweaks, so it’s not only prettier but faster than ever – hurrah!
Anyone who has me as a friend in foursquare or see’s my Facebook stream knows I use foursquare a lot. The question is, why doesn’t foursquare know this? How can I get an email making it seem like I need to be reminded that the screens have changed, the navigation is different, more map features added, and more? So why is a social media company incapable of using their own data to enhance my relationship? Why not make me feel special rather then a member of their junk mail list?
Lessons for Small Business
Even the big boys don’t get it right. So don’t ever think that you should not try because some major player in your space can always do it better and faster then you. Often, small business has more chances to beat the larger players at their own game because small business can be more nimble.
So my advice, don’t count out social media in your marketing plan!
