Shark Tank, the critically-acclaimed business-themed show that pits investor sharks against unique new businesses hot for investor dollars, is loaded with strategies for business success. It’s also full of tips for making the most of your social media.
Anyone who has seen the show knows the cast of characters: Billionaire Mark Cuban, owner and chairman of AXS TV and owner of the 2011 NBA championship Dallas Mavericks; real estate mogul Barbara Corcoran; “Queen of QVC” Lori Greiner; technology innovator Robert Herjavec; fashion and branding expert Daymond John; and venture capitalist Kevin “Mr. Wonderful” O’Leary.
Bravely, starry-eyed entrepreneurs march toward into the Shark Tank to woo the sharks into giving them life changing business deals. There is talk of branding and marketing, sales and revenue, profit margins, costs and concepts. The sharks and the budding entrepreneurs go back and forth on patents, negotiation points, due diligence and market research. Sometimes, it isn’t pretty — negotiations can be brutal. Always, there are lessons to learn.
Recently, the social media experts at Miles Technologies shared some of the social media lessons delivered by Shark Tank with the Philadelphia Business Journal.
