As we all know, you have to attack a castle from many angles to bring down the walls. The same principal applies to marketing.

From my experience, the only way to create a successful marketing campaign in today’s competitive world is a hybrid of both social media and traditional methods.

We at Scate are currently incorporating social media into our marketing mix. It is slowly starting to help sell one of our software products Scate Ignite. However, due to the fact that Ignite already plays within the social media world that might not be a good example for other types of products and services.

Even so, using social media to create a positive word of mouth is very power. Just make sure the products you’re marketing provide value or it will backfire very quickly.

If you know me, then you know I am passionate about technology and I am also passionate about the area I live (Michigan, Ontario technology corridor).

New technology companies like Scate are helping to create more jobs in diverse industries. Michigan and Ontario contain highly talented and technical people in which many of you I know. We just need to get our motivation and creativity back on track.

If we want to move our area out of this economic mess, then we need to stop watching the news, panicking, blaming others and start working on new ideas.

So, if you’re unemployed, then that is perfect time to start dreaming of something new and start a small business.

Let’s go Michigan and Ontario and stop following and start leading!
