What Social Media Is Most Important To You?

What Social Media Is Most Important To You? | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

Most Important Social Media
Friend asked a great question but in the wrong way. Social Media isn't important to me in and of itself, but each social media channel can help communicate marketing messages and thus become valuable and important.

Key is "matching the hatch" to borrow a fly fishing term.

Matching the hatch puts the right kind of content, what Gary Vaynerchuk calls "native content', on each social net when THAT information is important to communicating a marketing message. Here is how I answered:

Depends on what I'm trying to accomplish.

If I want comments and discussion GPlus.
If I want feedback from friends Facebook.
If I want to generally test Scoop.it.
If I want a "set it and forget it" content solution Paper.li.
If I have something happening now or want to newsjack Twitter.
To raise money on creative or gaming projects Kickstarter.
If I want to share videos YouTube.

If I want to serialize stories Storify.
If I want to test an infographic Pinterest. 
If I want to do something with audio then SmartCloud.
If I want to create sustainable and potentially "evergreen" content then I use WP blogs. Content becomes "evergreen" based on how it performs (views, shares, conversions).
If I want to sell something ecom then Shopify. 

Match the hatch to get the most from your content, your growing social media tribe, your time and content marketing and curation efforts.

The SEO Value of a Google+ Profile or Page [INFOGRAPHIC] | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

Because Google+ content will appear in Google's natural search results, it's important for your local business to have a page of it's own!


Google+ attracted over 100,000,00 users within the first 6 months of its launch and sites with a Google +1 button across their site generate 3.5 times more visits to their Google+ Page than those without the button.

4 Tips To Creatively Style Your Google+ Posts [Infographic] | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it
One thing most social networking services have in common is the inability to do something creative with your posts.

 

is there any social networking service out there that allows styling in the approach that word processors use? Well yes there is! As a matter of fact, one of the newest and most rapidly growing sites is actually doing just that.

 

Google+ has some “brackets” that you can use to style your posts, however it seems most people don’t know about them.

 

**There are 3 ways you can style your posts, and Simon Heyes put them together together a small guide for you all.

Why Google Plus Is NOT A Social Net But A "Revolution In Online Communication" with B. L. Ochman

Why Google Plus Is NOT A Social Net But A "Revolution In Online Communication" with B. L. Ochman | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

GooglePlus Rocks
+B.L. Ochman (@whatsnext) and +David F Leopold (@SmallBizDavid) created a great HangOut about +Google+ today. Several of B. L.'s statements struck me as beyond important including:

GooglePlus is NOT a social net but a revolution in online communication.

and

There has never been a TOOL like it.

This is a great Hangout with a very smart lady. At one point in the final third they discuss how GPlus is a major opportunity for fashion websites. I've done extensive research that supports that idea.

If you keep in mind the idea that GPlus is a tool not a social net it may be the most disruptive thing you can do within your business vertical no matter what it is (I have extensive research to back that up too).

Why kill yourself to catch up to someone who is just waiting for you machinegun in place on Facebook or Twitter when, in almost every case I've studied GPlus is a blue ocean of opportunity?

How did teams I've managed make over $30M online? It wasn't by doing what everyone else was doing exactly as they wre doing it I assure you :). Marty

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.
