/\ See that picture right there? I bought that piece of genius for $80 after seeing a Facebook Ad. 2 full months after seeing the ad.
I want to tell you why I bought it. Why it took 2 months. Why I'm happy about the product. Why the ad worked (eventually). And why the advertiser will never get credit for that sale.
I'm a fan of Facebook. Obvi.
As a platform, it offers small businesses the most targeted, effective, affordable marketing it has EVER known. Today, SO many businesses - certainly mine! - depend upon Facebook that it's become difficult, frightening even, to imagine what we'd possibly do without it.
It's a question I'll admit has kept me up longer than my bedtime on more than one occasion. When that happens, I tend to focus my energy on the thought all Scarlet O'Hara-Style. As in, I'll think about that tomorrow.
But no amount of fiddle-dee-dee would help me if Facebook took an unexpected dive. Might as well look at the possibility straight in the face, as it were.
OK. So, could Facebook live forever? Could it die ... or, barring that, simply lose some of its influence? And what would happen to your business if it did?
You know what the coolest thing in the world is right now? My Facebook Page's new cover VIDEO.
If you don't have it yet, you will very, very soon. And that means you've got some planning to do, human!
Why I am I so ridiculously giddy about this? Honest - I'm not crystal clear on that yet. But, LOOK at it! It's sooooooo cool. Okay, this has clearly touched my geek buttons in their most ticklish places.
To these common and forever echoing questions, I offer this answer:
When you have several extremely happy customers.
In marketing, the word “millennial” is uttered with such urgency and ambiguity, you’d think we were talking about tracking down a mythical beast. That, or preparing for an invasion of mythical beasts.

If you spot a millennial, approach gently and with caution. Pay special attention to how it behaves and what it likes. The millennial has few words, so speak in smiley faces and LOLs (consult glossary). When attempting to capture the millennial’s wallet, distract with flattery and mobile devices. In short, just be cool man.
WHOA. Stop right there. Because Millennial isn't what you think it is. Not even close.
