Join Brands Don't Buy Them
Agree with this infographic about what makes people loyal to brands. Brands are shorthand for contemporary life. We bundle so much meaning into brands such as Nike, Apple and REI that it would be hard to imagine modern life without these shortcuts. 

Faith Popcorn famously said people don't BUY brands they JOIN them and these "loyalty" reasons can help form a brand people want to join.

Though some forward-thinking businesses are already using Instagram, chances are you aren't yet, and neither are your competitors. With its universal appeal, however, Instagram is not a medium marketers should ignore. And you'd better move quickly if you want to make an impact.

Here's an interesting one fro Robin Good.

Gaurav Pandey's curator insight, March 14, 2013 3:41 AM

It could turn out to be a great tool for entrepreneurs looking to launch a new business/product. Gauging the market size and customer segments can be a daunting task and at the beginning most people start with what can be best described as a set of hypotheses about who their target customers are and what's the best product - market fit. Google Surveys, coupled with the good old "get out of the building and talk to people" method is a great way to gather thsi information.

Marc Kneepkens's curator insight, May 24, 2013 12:29 AM

Agree, lots of great information. Recommended.


I want to add one thing, if you're looking to build a website and

  • get all the tools and information to create traffic
  • write excellent content
  • find the best ways to monetize
  • blog directly from the site
  • integrate with the social media and much more, take a look at SBI/Sitesell. Tens of thousands happy members have built sites that end up in the 2-3% top traffic sites in the world. Over 300,000 Facebook supporters. Classes taught in over 30 universities around the world. Check out the CTPM process that makes it all happen: http://ctpm.sitesell.com/welcome23.html

6 Methods For Efficient Social Media Marketing

6 Methods For Efficient Social Media Marketing | building community through social media | Scoop.it

There are only so many hours in the day for you to get tasks done. On top of your normal work, you also have to go to meetings, schedule work, network and ensure that your online channels are up to date and that there’s a strategy in place.

 

However, while there was a time where we struggled to make time for digital marketing, it’s now a case where we perhaps put too much time into it. Being active online is great to see, but it shouldn’t come at the expense of your other tasks. All that time dwelling on what to post, figuring out what content people will like and how it ties into your business are things that mightn’t seem significant, but quickly add up over time.

 

If you don’t have a proper handle on it, you can end up being constantly busy, but not being productive. If this sounds like something you experience regularly, here’s what you can do to reverse the trend.

 

Create A Schedule And Stick To It

It’s a simple idea but it’s amazing how few actually bother to put one together.

 

Prepare In Advance

That said, there’s nothing wrong with preparing content in advance as there are always ideas, posts and images that aren’t time sensitive.

 

Break Down And Delegate

Not all businesses can afford the luxury of a community manager so if you have a small team, why not break up duties between each other?

 

Cross-Posting

So long as you don’t resort to automating the process, which can work against you since it shows you didn’t put time into it, then you can post the same image/video on another account.

 

Less Is More

If you’re tweeting and posting regularly, that’s great. However, if it’s a case that each post is getting low levels of engagement, you may want to reconsider your content strategy.

The Write Conversation : Tips to Finding Relevant Twitter Hashtags

The Write Conversation : Tips to Finding Relevant Twitter Hashtags | building community through social media | Scoop.it

If you’re tweeting about a new subject, be sure to check the hashtags and pick ones that will correctly target your audience.

 

There are four sites that can be recommended. 

1) Hashtags.org. This site gives a list of trending hashtags, a graph and a search box to type in potential hashtags. After typing in a hashtag, it lists current tweets containing that hashtag. 2) Trendistic.IndexTank.com. It also gives you a graph, along with a search box. But it’s graph allows you to check the trends for the past 180 days. 3) WhatTheTrend.com. Like the others, What the Trend has current trends, a graph and a search box. I included it because it also explains why a particular hashtag is trending. 4) Trendsmap.com - this site has a map that tells you what is trending where. This is particularly helpful if you’re targeting a specific area. by Edie Melson
