Are you Over-Automating? How to Stay Mindful in a Data-Driven World.

Social media is about people. The holy grail of marketing is currently personalization.

And while new amazing social media intelligence tools are making it easier than ever before to listen, analyze data, gain insights and make informed decisions, there is a real danger to over-automate.

More and more social media strategies are employing auto-response, auto-Retweet, auto-content generation, auto-whateverpossible tools. This goes against the grain of social media and is a recipe for getting out of touch with your constituents.

As @JoshDSullivan of Booz Allen put it:

“No machine can be a miracle cure. Humans have to find patterns, ask questions, make the connections.” 

  • How can you do that?
  • How can you ensure that your social media team is not getting overwhelmed and side-tracked by too much data and technological stimuli?
  • How can you enable them to respond vs. react to stay at the top of their game?
