Why Your Company Needs A Social Business Strategy

Why Your Company Needs A Social Business Strategy | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it
Andrew Grill talks about why you need a Social Business Strategy.

 

So impressed was I with a recent report from Altimeter group on Social Business titled “The evolution of social business – six stages of social business transformation”, that I decided to do a multi-part blog post. The first post can be viewed at lc.tl/asb1. In this second post, I am looking at the section of the report that looks at defining a social business strategy. The Altimeter report looked at 698 companies in medium-large sized companies, as well as deeper interviews with 26 executives and social strategists at 15 companies. The Altimeter definition of a social business strategy is the following: the set of visions, goals, plans, and resources that align social media initiatives with business objectives.

Martin Gysler's insight:

This post from Andrew Grill (CEO of Kred) is based on the recent report from Altimeter group on Social Business titled “The evolution of social business – six stages of social business transformation”.

 

Andrew analyzing the situation very well, and gives us an interesting and "simple" approach, which is important in a business strategy in the social business field. If you have already a good strategy for your business, maybe this post will provide you some useful informations more.

 

Do you have any other points to add?

Get What Matters Done by Scheduling Time Blocks

Get What Matters Done by Scheduling Time Blocks | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it
Want to get the stuff done that really matters? Boost your productivity and lessen distractions by scheduling them in time blocks.

 

The demands on our time are greater now than ever before. With information coming at us faster than we can digest it, responsibilities handed to us faster than we can handle them and communication moving at breakneck speed, finding ways to fit as much as possible into your day is a daunting task to say the least. But there is a way to get more done of what you want and need with less distraction, and it’s a strategy that you likely employ for some things already.


You have to schedule stuff. Not just the appointment-specific stuff, but all of the stuff that matters. You can do that by scheduling time blocks.

 

The one great equalizer that all of humanity has is time. No one has twenty-five hours in their day; we all have twenty-four. How we choose to use those hours is what separates us. By scheduling the stuff that matters (from the urgent to the crucial), you’ll be spending those hours far more wisely. In addition, you’ll be living your days proactively rather than reactively...

Product Strategy: James Klobasa Reveals His Strategies For A Surefire Product Launch Success

Product Strategy: James Klobasa Reveals His Strategies For A Surefire Product Launch Success | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

Some of the results James has achieved for his clients during their launches in recent months include, $103,000 in five days, $127,000 in three days and $130,000 in cash + $50,000 a month in recurring passive income. If you ask me, that’s pretty cool and I would certainly love to have someone like James onside if I was planning a launch.


Because James covers so many topics in the video, I’m going to write a list of the main points and the approximate time in the video he discusses them. That way you can see exactly what kind of content is in the interview and if you want to skip straight to a particular part, you can. The rest of the article will go into the detail of all these points for those who prefer to read about it...

How I Went From 0 to 1,012 Blog Subscribers in 101 Days

How I Went From 0 to 1,012 Blog Subscribers in 101 Days | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

An excellent article on how to strategically generate more traffic for your blog by targeting the right audiences for your content.  Very useful for businesses who want to capitalize blogging as a tool for driving up more profits.


It took me 101 days to hit 1,012 subscribers. I did it by using a very simple strategy that was free from overwhelm and stress.


Most bloggers never get past the 1,000 subscriber mark, or create a profitable online business, not because they aren’t good, but because they are afraid to use the most effective tools available.


I worked hard during those 101 days, but I loved every second of it. Looking back, I can still see where I made mistakes, but making mistakes is not the problem, not taking action is.


If you can consistently take action, you will achieve your goals.

And the way to consistently have the fuel to take action is to find and follow your passion.


We all have something like this inside of us.

If you can find a topic you could die for, you’re on the right track. If someone had a gun to your head and you had to choose one topic to write about for the next few years, what would you choose?

Hard Times
When cost cuts fail….drastic measures. How do you survive when you have cut costs as much as you can and your small business is still not viable? You just can’t wait any longer for the business climate to improve. Some small businesses are altering their core business plans or strategies. These changes include changing their products and services, what market strategies they use, and what markets they target. Some are making riskier moves by introducing new products and services. Before making changes, the small business owner should consider the flexibility of the employees and of the business structure. Can they accommodate the necessary changes? The small business owner must remember that the margin for error is far less at this lower level of economic activity. WSJ
