Two recent announcements will prove Twitter's worth not only as a social advertising platform, but as a lead generation tool for the movie and the music industries.
Lead generation has been an important tool for finding new customers. Twitter continues to build a massive community, with more than 400 million tweets generated worldwide daily. It makes sense that tweets with a positive sentiment have a greater impact to drive sales, but how much of an impact?

Being an Internet marketer for many years I’ve seen the landscape change many times but one thing has stayed the same “Content is King”, when it comes to driving traffic to a website.
As a business owner we all want to get new customers to our websites.

We now have a new player on the net and it comes in the form of Content Curation. No it will not completely eliminate business owners creating content for their website but adds a whole new area of content development for a website.
Over the past two years I’ve tested different content curation sites and tools and have found Scoop.it to be the leader in both innovation and traffic building potential.
Below are examples on how Scoop.it can drive traffic and help to show the world, yes the world that your business knows your market.

It's marketers' million-dollar question: What makes something go viral?
You know that social media is best used to establish and maintain a long term relationship with your customers. Still, it would be nice to have something take off every once in awhile, spreading awareness of your brand to the furthest corners of the Internet.
What makes someone hit that "share" button? In the research I conducted and discuss in my upcoming book Laddering: Unlocking the Potential of Consumer Behavior, I interviewed thousands of consumers to understand why they do what they do.
It is hard to believe that in a digital world where people are so connected, it still seems to be completely difficult for businesses to use that to their advantage to more efficiently maximize their ROI. Companies continue to spend on banner ads instead of on the people who can really make a difference in the way people purchase.
This infographic should help researchers and advertisers see what great potential there is in the power of social media and general online influence. Bloggers, tweeters, and Facebook champions really can be wise investments; read more at the article link.
