I’m a big collector of profound quotes and memes. One that I’ve had on my refrigerator for awhile is:

“It’s not who you know, it’s who knows you.”

I wish I had heard this 30 years ago.

I probably did, but it didn’t sink in.

I was thinking about social media where I often think to myself, probably like many of my colleagues in the wedding industry, “Why am I spending so much time on this social media marketing thing, what’s the value, where is the return on investment?”

I like to measure things, not just do something because everyone else is doing it or says “it’s great.”

So I got to thinking… social media kind of boils down to: “It’s not who you know, it’s who knows you.”

Lightbulb moment!

It’s also an effective tool to build your brand, increase your online visibility, and to drive traffic to your website.

If you use it properly.
