Jay Levinson and I put our heads together and came up with “The 10 Personality traits of a Guerrilla Social Media Marketer” they will be part of a program we’re developing together. I thought I would give you a sneak peek into these traits and the Guerrilla way:
- Immune to hype:
There is a lot of hype around social media. The Guerrilla searches for truth, verifies information and executes with dependable tools and strategies.
Penicillin was invented serendipitously. Guerrillas aren’t afraid to experiment, make mistakes or try new things to gain a competitive advantage.
- The ability to sprint:
There will be small windows of opportunity and the Guerrilla is always ready to exploit them with all of their energy passion and resources.
- The ability to run marathons:
Many battles are battles of attrition. Guerrillas know how to wear their competition down and build a presence through consistency.
A Guerrilla knows that truth, empathy and integrity are keys to social media marketing, and they build trust and loyalty through transparency.
- Community focused
A Guerrilla builds, connects and helps the community. Within that community are other Guerrilla Allies that will be their assets.
- Profit driven
A Guerrilla measures success by profits, not clicks, visitors, or any “cool factor.”
- 8. Tech hungry
Technology is the Guerrilla’s Social Media Marketers core weapon and competency. They are always learning more about technology.
A Guerrilla knows that technology and business moves fast. They are constantly learning more to stay ahead of the competition.
- Leadership mentality
