Social Media Tools That Support Google+: Solutions for Small Business

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.

Thank you for your very useful information Wendy. I think you said what many people need to know to find their way in the social media world where the plethora of tools makes things, sometimes, complicated.
Anthony Burke's comment, April 21, 2013 1:22 AM
All these tools keep "leap-frogging" each other in terms of functionality so I just keep an eye on several of them which is where this community comes in useful to see what others think and are using :)

Does everybody need a social media strategy?

Does everybody need a social media strategy? | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

As the hype of social media begins to die down and companies re-evaluate their efforts with a steely-eyed look at the cost versus benefits, I think it is time to re-visit this important question: Does every company really need a social media marketing plan?

 

This is a very complex question. So to help answer it, I looked at a few companies with brands that might not be natural fits for a social media presence. Adult diapers. Coal. Hazardous waste clean-up. Playing cards.

 

Let’s explore this important question by taking a romp through some unusual case studies that stretch the boundaries of social media marketing thinking.

Through this six different companies we can learn a lot about social media strategy and if everybody needs a social media strategy.

 

In my sense, social media is a great place to keep in touch with his customers and prospects and give another dimension in life. We can also do it in a small frame.

 

What is your feeling?

How Do You Know When You’re Overdosing On Social Networks?

How Do You Know When You’re Overdosing On Social Networks? | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

Social networks are captivating – there’s no doubt. The minds behind building the popular social media platforms of today knew exactly what they were doing and they saw it before any of us ever did. It’s a brilliant idea really – create a medium that allows people from all over the world to connect, share and collaborate like they never have been able to before in the history of the Earth. Incredible!

But an unforeseen (or potentially foreseen, but ignored) consequence is addiction. Social networks have been so good at “helping” us, but now they’re hindering us. From what you might ask? Well, ask your friends, family, parents, even children what they think. And although it is often joked about, it isn’t a joking matter.

Building Your LinkedIn Network

Building Your LinkedIn Network | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

LinkedIn is certainly the best social media platform for the business contacts and network. To be in harmony, it’s important to respect few rules and good sense. This post will give some information about that. [note Martin Gysler]

 

In his book Ultimate Guide to LinkedIn for Business, author Ted Prodromou describes how to best to leverage the networking site as a business tool. In this edited excerpt, the author details the two methods of building connections on LinkedIn.

 

How many connections should you have on LinkedIn? I'm asked that question frequently, and there isn't a magic number that works for everyone. LinkedIn isn't a popularity contest where the person with the most connections wins. LinkedIn is about building relationships and connecting with others, which is very different than the monologue communication of Twitter.

LinkedIn’s one-click endorsements are crazy popular

LinkedIn’s one-click endorsements are crazy popular | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

Sometimes a little thing change the face of the world, on LinkedIn it's the one-click endorsement. I think it's really a great idea from LinkedIn to introduce this possibility. [note Martin Gysler]

 

It took LinkedIn nine years to reach 187 million members. It took the professional social network about one month to pass 200 million endorsements.


Endorsements are LinkedIn’s lightweight version of recommendations. The one-click, vote-of-approval option was released in late September; it offers members a quick and easy way to tell the world that a friend or co-worker is skilled in any area imaginable, say journalism, social media, or even kettlebells. Received endorsements are listed on member profiles in the skills and expertise section.

How to Understand, Identify & Engage with Social Influencers [Infographic]

How to Understand, Identify & Engage with Social Influencers [Infographic] | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

I chose this infographic and article from Blackbaud because it helps you go from social media to social business. It was written for non-profits but it definitely applies to any business as well.


By understanding how to evaluate people by their degree of influence and their ability to help change behavior in others can be invaluable to you and your organization.


**It's also important to use this information to understand how you and your organization fit into this mix. They say knowledge is power, once you have a clearer picture, you can shift what you're doing and take your business or cause to the next level for greater results.


Intro:


"Understanding the Value of Your Social Media Influencers: How to Identify and Empower Those Who Can Engage an Entire Community!

(Download the White Paper Today!)"


Here are some highlights:


**Learn how to use the information your consitiuents are sharing to attract more people to your mission, campaign.


**Learn how to analyze your database and assign social scores to engagers that represents their ability to interact with and influence others across their online networks


**Based on the social score you assign to these individuals, you can then segment them into one of four categories, each of which plays a diferent role on social networks, relevant to your business


Here are the categories:


Key Influencers - They have a powerful impact not only the people they know but also others they don't know. Their posts are widely spread and shared by more people than many other people

art


Engagers - These people have well-established social networks and are strong influencers of people they know personally


Multichannel Consumers - They enjoy keeping up with social media conent and occasionally participate. Their influence is not a dominent part of their persona


Standard Consumers These engagers read and watc updates more than they create new content or make comments. They are more influenced by family and friends.

10 Things You May Not Know About YouTube

10 Things You May Not Know About YouTube | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it
Social media verse is full of some best kept secrets. YouTube is one of them. Yet when I think about cultural shifts enabled by social media, YouTube is the place that comes most vibrantly to mind. It's big, wide and deep.


In my last post I mentioned that the social media ‘verse is full of some best kept secrets. YouTube is one of them.


This Time cover from a couple of years ago (with the shiny mirrored screen) was prescient, but not quite enough… I’d cross that ‘You’ out and say ‘Us’. Hasn’t it felt that way these last couple of years? How we’ve grown a global collective consciousness?


Despite this cover, YouTube is not usually the first site that comes to mind when thinking about social media. I guess we take it a bit for granted while we wax rhapsodic about Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr and Quora. Yet when I think about cultural shifts enabled by social media, YouTube is the place that comes most vibrantly to mind. It’s big, wide and deep.

Mature. Eccentric. Probably not what you think it is.


YouTube has its Own Language
