Reminder that we are ALL in the “social” business

I found this book very helpful even though I don’t own a golf course. I think this book is relevant to any industry or business looking to become a “social” organization. We are living in such an interconnected world that every business has to find a way to consistently engage and create value for the people/community that they are serving. No consumer wants to be just another number. The alternative is slow attrition of your client base to your competitors.

Different social media channels allow you to do just that. This book provides a strategic and tactical roadmap for you to create a “social” golf course business (but as I said before, the template can be applied to other industries/businesses as well). It is very well written. A must read.
