In my estimation, the reason why more experienced social media marketers gravitate toward Slideshare is that they eventually recognize that social media is about actions, not eyeballs. The “reach” offered by the larger consumer-oriented platforms is seductive, but if only a tiny percentage of your fans are seeing your posts in those venues, is the reach really reliable?
Slideshare’s audience is bigger than you might think, is terrific for lead generation, and is populated by people actively seeking information and resources (not dissimilar from a search engine, in that regard).
And that audience is hungry for information. It’s not uncommon to generate significant views and downloads for Slideshare presentations, including 24,000+ and counting for my presentation on reliable reach....
If you work in marketing, it’s likely that either you or someone in your team has a KPI relating to engagement. Indeed, Brandwatch’s own forays into OKRs have included some aims to increase social media engagement.
Connection is important in a community. However, for it to exist, you must first generate trust. Trust arises from your community’s engagement. Unless you give rise to such engagement on the basis of the credibility you earn with what you do and what you say, then there is no community, you have nothing.

More Than What is Said The importance of this week's #cloudtalk Hangout On Air is what Brian does with Periscope, Meerkat and Youtube. Brian was simultaneously creating conversations using "real time video" in three channels.
The power of real time video CAN'T BE OVERSTATED. I didn't understand Periscope until Mark Traphagen went for a walk in Duke Garden. As Mark walk, shooting a real time video, he SAW me join and could discuss what he was seeing / doing.
WOW, think of real time videos as your way to have a conversation. Real time video breaks down the time delay AND you are left with a product, if you record your sessions, that will help others with similar questions later.
The immediacy is too cool to be denies. We've been wrestling with how to break down the silos between commerce and content. Brian's demonstration has our wheels turning.
But what exactly does "good" mean when it comes to visual content? There's a lot to it: great topic, color consistency and effective design, proper dimensions for publishing, promotional strategy ... and you'll need a game plan to maximize your ROI.To help you create that game plan and boost engagement with your visual content, HubSpot teamed up with Market Domination Media to create the infographic below. Check it out....
Social media marketing is simple in one sense. Create content that adds value and then try and get it out to as many people as possible.That's reach. If you do it well then the crowd shares and it travels around the world at the speed of a click.
Aspiring young executives dream of climbing the ladder in order to gain more authority. Then they can make things happen and create the change that they believe in. Senior executives, on the other hand, are often frustrated by how little power they actually have.
The problem is that while authority can compel action it does little to inspire belief. Only leadership can do that. It’s not enough to get people to do what you want, they have to also want what you want or any change is bound to be short lived.
That’s why change management efforts commonly fail. All too often, they are designed to carry out initiatives that come from the top. When you get right down to it, that’s really the just same thing as telling people to do what you want, albeit in slightly more artful way. To make change really happen, it doesn’t need to be managed, but empowered.
