Derek Edmond wrote this article for searchengineland - I selected it because in today's world there's too much noise - getting attention from the right people will require knowledge and strategy.


The focus of the article centers around content marketing designed to attract buyers at every stage of the buying cycle, particularly early-stage awareness. which is exactly where you want to be.


Here's what you need to know:


Search is one of the first places where buyers start.


According to Pardot’s 2013 State of Demand Generation Report, 72% of product research for a future business purchase beginning on Google.


But savvy search engine marketers understand that onsite content is only one destination buyers will look to find information, assuming that content is found in search engine results.


Here's something you need to do:


Where B2B Marketers Start Buying Research: Pardot 2013 State of Demand Generation Report


Placing content marketing assets in destinations that provide a good opportunity to be found in search engine results — and also represent locations where target audiences find and share information — which is a critical component of B2B SEO.


The direct correlation is through inbound link acquisition. The long-term opportunity is the association with trusted communities and places of industry influence and trust.


There are twenty different third party sites and sources B2B marketers should consider for placing content in their SEO strategy.


I have highlighted a few that caught my attention:


Google Properties (YouTube, Google+, etc) — unique, quality content throughout Google properties isn’t just about social networking. It should provide a direct association between an organization, its thought leaders, and keyword-related objectives to the search engine.


Industry-Specific Forums — for informational search queries, we often find forum threads in search results. Forum communities are an underrated resource for developing valuable discussions and establishing brand / individual trust.

All in all, it has been a very active month for Google+ and the new wave of features is projected to increase its social networking share.

Social Media Tools That Support Google+: Solutions for Small Business | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn can be found in the majority of social media management apps. It is with Google+ that things get a little bit more complicated: very few social media tools support it due to some technical challenges.

 

However, most social media managers would prefer a solution that would allow them posting to all social networks in one place, Google+ including.

 

In this post, you’ll find reference to all tools that are to date integrated with Google+. We’ll bring small business editions to a special focus and review social tools that (1) support Google+ and (2) the ones you can use for free or under $10 a month.

Platformen als Twitter en Facebookhebben de marketing, sales en de community op een revolutionaire wijze veranderd. Maar op de werkvloer zelf is er ook erg veel veranderd. Meer dan de helft van de bedrijven staat het hun medewerkers toe om toegang te hebben tot sociale netwerksites op het werk, maar toch is er nog een kwart van de bedrijven die toegang tot sociale netwerksites actief blokkeert. De bijgevoegde infographic gaat dieper in op het gebruik van sociale netwerksites op de werkvloer.

G+ is catching up big time for many reasons.  Among these reasons is the Hangout integration.  

 

We just facilitated a remote 1.5 day leadership development session with Hangouts and it was fantastic.  

 

Google is sticking to their strategy and their value is starting to win people over.  I was never a fan and, through valuable features, I am changing my perspective on the suite of offerings.

 

This is a relevant infographic.

Are Brands Wielding More Influence In Social Media Than We Thought?

Are Brands Wielding More Influence In Social Media Than We Thought? | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

I selected this piece by Steve Olenski  for Forbes because it's good for B2C marketers to see the results of their social media campaigns.

 

This article is specifically aimed at B2C marketers where their consumers want instant gratification - promotions, giveaways, etc. Having said that, part of the purchasing cycle can include content in some cases depending on what you're selling and who your audience is.

 

Here are findings of a survey recently conducted by Market Force - a worldwide leader in customer intelligence solutions.

 

12,000 consumers in the US and UK were asked how they engaged with varying industries via social media: Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and Google+

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

**81% of US respondents indicated posts from their friends directly influenced their purchase decision

 

**80% of respondents “tried new things based on friends’ suggestions.”

 

**78% of respondents said the posts by companies they follow on social media impact their purchases.

 

**consumers are not all that interested in content but rather want something i.e. a promotion, giveaway, etc. when it comes to social media and their favorite brands.

 

Are Brands finally "getting it" when it comes to social media?

 

**They are getting more and more cognizant of the fact that what they post, share and so on can and will impact what the end user does – in this case, make a purchase decision.

 

**out of the 12,000 who participated 75% were women. This is incredibly significant given the fact that women account for 85% of all consumer purchases

Google+ Blends Social Networking and Community

Google+ Blends Social Networking and Community | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

This piece is from socialmediatoday, I selected it because there are some very interesting insights and questions about the future of google+ and their ability to build and maintain a strong social network and community.

 

Here are some highlights:

 

**Social networks are fundamentally different from communities

 

**the two models are commonly interechanged and the fact that they are two very different models is often lost or overlooked

 

**a community can form within a social network & visa versa it's very difficult for a social network to force or facilitate community and for a community to force or facilitate a social network

 

**Social networks are interested in community as community tends to generate significant amounts of content

 


**As the age old adage goes, ‘content is king

 

**The reason content is king is because when combined with demographic and behavioral information it provides unmatched opportunities for targeting based on a users digital body language.

 

**Social network and community operators are essentially the brokers between advertisers and consumers.

 

**It is at the point these two parties meet that revenue opportunities exist

 

**‘networked community’ for want of a better term is unchartered waters

 

**it does provide a myriad of new opportunities and benefits to Google.

 

**Combine these with Google’s other well-adopted product lines such as Search, Gmail not forgetting the YouTube community and the possibilities begin to multiply.

Google Plus Communities | Social Media Today

Google Plus Communities | Social Media Today | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

Google+ communities are less than a year old but they are becoming an important and powerful feature of Google+. As interest in the social platform has grown so has the number of Google+ communities.


Although you can find more than 100.000 communities on Google+, check out at least those 10 interesting communities recommended by author of this article Steve Rayson.


Ten Google Plus Communities You Should Check Out


The G+ Resource  

The G+ Resource is a community that discusses all things Google Plus, as well as related Google services. It is a great place to start to learn more about G+ or to ask questions.

Google Plus Pro Tips  

This is great community run by Jesse Wojdylo. This community is focused on getting the most out of your Google+ account. Everyone is very willing to help each other learn every single facet of Google+, and help each other solve any problems that may come up. 

Google Authorship and Author Rank  

Google Authorship is increasingly important to any content marketing strategy. It allows content creators to connect their content from across the web to their Google+ profiles. This community is the place to keep up to date with developments and news; and to ask questions.

Social Media Professionals 

This is a dedicated and active group of moderators keen to make sure this community doesn't turn into a community where there is spam and low engagement. Thus it is a request only community. This community discusses topics related to working in or with social media.

Social Media Strategy 

This is a sister community to "Social Media Professionals".  The Social Media Strategy community discusses news and business strategies centered around social media. This goes beyond marketing and can include product life cycle management, customer care, HR, market research, and innovation.

LinkedIn for Business  

This community is focused on how businesses can and do use LinkedIn. I am personally convinced that LinkedIn is one of the other key B2B marketing platforms in addition to Google+ so there is lots to learn here.

Content Marketing World 

This community is focused around an annual event - Content Marketing World. This takes place in September and brings together the largest global group of marketers and content experts. This community acts a forum for discussion open to all those attended and those interested in content marketing.

Content Marketing and Social Media 

There is quite a lot of link sharing in this community and less engagement than some of the others but it is useful for the latest news and posts on content marketing and social media.

SEO and Website Design 

This is one of many SEO communities on Google+ and a good place to keep up to date and discuss developments.

Anders Pink B2B Marketing

Finally, this is a community I recently established to explore, share and discuss the latest thinking on B2B marketing with no sales pitches or commercial posts. Anders Pink is a community of B2B marketers and doesn't sell any services. The aim of the community is to curate a set of high quality articles, case studies and resources to support all of us involved in B2B marketing.
