Common Sense Marketing - Social Media and Marketing by Bogdan Fiedur

Common Sense Marketing - Social Media and Marketing by Bogdan Fiedur | Adlandpro talking about Social-Marketing-Blogging | Scoop.it
I find that common sense marketing is a breath of fresh air, because without common sense, how could people do other forms of marketing?
Diane Bjorling's insight:

How many of you are using common sense when marketing? The fact is that long before email or social media marketing, people were using the common sense approach to marketing without all the fancy whistles one sees today.

When I wrote this post, it was in connection to a question being asked and my answer was based entirely on common sense.

Should we always use common sense with marketing, I have to be honest and say yes and no.

One example for using common sense marketing is when you are invited into a new program or affiliate program and no one can give you a straight answer... my tingling sense ( what I call common sense says to run for the hills)

should you use common sense marketing all the time? I am going to have to say no, because it will limit you and stop you from being creative..

 

I was reading a post and I loved the analogy that Mr. Aschenbach  gave against using common sense all the time and I liked what Jaimie Hsu said

 As Michael Aschenbach put it, "If you get lost in the woods, it is good to have survival experience. Having a map is nice, too." Jamie Hsu said that "It is the combination of theory and common sense that makes a great leader and decision maker."


"How Dangerous Is Common Sense to Managers? http://hbswk.hbs.edu/item/6785.html



Bottom line? There is a time and place for everything, the trick is knowing when to create and when to stay with the methods that have been proven to work

Subject line: Why Does he have a Turnip in his Pipe?

Subject line: Why Does he have a Turnip in his Pipe? | Adlandpro talking about Social-Marketing-Blogging | Scoop.it
Subject line crafting is even more critical than good copy writing. Here are twelve good reasons, and there are more.
Diane Bjorling's insight:

When creating subject lines on different "places" I have found that what will work with one audience on Twitter will be a total fail somewhere else, so this post by Dave Cottrell, brings out many good points about the best usage of subject lines.
To add to these tips, I would like to mention that with so many people using mobile devises more and more, accessing their email, reading tweets etc, it is very important that you pay attention to crafting your subject line so that it will be seen properly on ALL devices. For example and something I just recently learned is that the IPhone cuts off a subject line at 35 characters ( not words..but Characters!) and if you are using android, they wrap the subject line to the next line.

Dave had mentioned Litmus as one of the tools to use in checking subject lines. It is the only to date that I found, that will check to see how a subject line is seen on all devices, including

DEVICES

Android 2.3 & 4.0
Gmail (Android)
iPhone 5s iOS 7
iPhone 5 iOS 6
iPad (retina) iOS 7
iPad Mini iOS 7
BlackBerry Text & HTML
Windows Phone 8

Although you have to pay to see all the devices, on the free checker, they will show you how an email will look on Blackberry.

There is a lot of great information about creating ebooks, but few talk about how to use free tools to create ebooks. Check out these free tools
Diane Bjorling's insight:

We all know that writing an ebook is a great strategy to provide traffic, developing a list as well as creating brand recognition.

For many people creating an ebook is a daunting task and it can be made more difficult if you are unsure of how to do it and what you need to make an ebook that will be downloaded and shared.

Finding tools that reasonable in cost to help with this type of project can be a challenge.

Some of these free tools to create ebooks  can be used for  other styles of writing, including blogging, article writing and even advertorials.

  Rumors are that Google might be planning to kill Google+ or at least put it into a Walking Dead-like “zombie” mode, as TechCrunch characterizes it — and something Google denies. There are some good reasons for Google to do this, and potentially, it could allow Google to better fight on the new social battlefield, […]
Diane Bjorling's insight:

I'm a little unsure of what to say about this potential death of G+.  For all the people who love being there, I know many who still do not see why they should be there at all, which says something in itself.

I have always liked G+ because I could learn news things from people who are at the top of their game, not to mention you can see some of the best images there.

Should they have integrated as the did with such places as YouTube, while it was a non issue for me personally, I can see why others hate it.

I guess the real question is..if it does go by the wayside, then those people who were using it as a personal blogging platform might have a few problems.... what do you think?
