I love the question “are you on Facebook?” First I smile and say no I don’t use Facebook, and then realize I’ve just been given another great opportunity to deliver my patented elevator sales speech…
… As a Digital Strategist I help individuals & organizations effectively leverage digital technology and apply limited resources to achieve their online goals. And one of the best ways to be accessible to all of the 3+ billion global Internet users (3,079,339,857 as of 12/31/14, internetworldstats.com), and not just the walled 1 billion Facebook users, is to have my own branded personal website/blog & email (CraigBarry.com). For the cost of a couple of beers ($12USD/yr.) I can offer whatever content I choose and have complete control over privacy, context and monetization – I can’t do that using Facebook.
If time is really short – I just say − I just noticed that the number of worldwide Facebook user and smokers both just passed the 1 billion mark!
Do you smoke? Why not? Everyone else is doing it.
Maybe it is time to separate yourself from the rest of the pack!
