A PR Pro's Guide to Google+ Communities and our prediction for its success

 

...The concept of a group discussion site is nothing new (think Facebook Groups, Yahoo! Groups and LinkedIn groups) but what sets Google+ Communities apart is the integration of the topical groups into the social platform.  For example, members of a group can capitalize on the hangout feature of Google+ and take part in a video chat within the group. Additionally, because the communities ‘live’ on Google, the Events calendar feature is enabled within communities, allowing photo sharing and event management to happen more easily.

 

One of the biggest differences in Google+ Communities versus other discussion groups is that you don’t have to actually visit the community’s URL to take part in the conversation. Users can share links directly with their communities simply using the +1 button that is now integrated into most social sharing technologies.  Another function unique to Google+ Communities is that conversations can be tagged and categorized, so members can find pieces of the discussion that are most relevant to them....

Beyond our traditional social media channels (Facebook and Twitter), I think SlideShare has been the most successful. Some of our videos have really done well separately, just as YouTube videos and the videos that we link from our site.

 

For our research publications, we’ve created separate apps for all the various tablets. That’s been a little disappointing in terms of the number of downloads. They’re free apps, but we can’t seem to get as many interested eyeballs as I would like. I think it’s difficult, as people aren’t actively searching for this type of info. It’s not something they say: “Oh, cancer research. That would be a fun app!” So trying to get some attention to that amidst all the thousands and thousand of apps out there, and trying to drive traffic to the apps that we’ve created has been challenging for us....

How to make New Year’s resolutions stick

How to make New Year’s resolutions stick | Clinquant Culture | Scoop.it

New Year always galvanizes people into action – or at least, into making a list of New Year’s resolutions, even if they then don’t act on it! Whether it’s making resolutions about finding a new job – or getting a promotion in the one they’re in, or whether it’s about taking steps to live a healthier life, the New Year always seems like an appropriate time to make a fresh start.


 For many people though, the problem is that they rush in to making big changes all at once, and end up feeling quickly defeated, and throwing the towel in on all their resolutions by the middle of February.

The New SEO Rules in a Content Marketing World

The New SEO Rules in a Content Marketing World | Clinquant Culture | Scoop.it

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, October 29, 2013 9:58 PM

This one slide alone summarizes the major trend of these past few years.


In other words, Social Media is becoming the new SEO. 


This has at least 2 consequences for Content Marketers:


1. Content Marketing is becoming more and more important: companies can't use old fashion backlinking techniques anymore.


2. Content needs to be shareable and target humans - not robots. In particular content curators who will amplify their content impact by adding the right context to the right audience.

Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, October 30, 2013 7:33 PM

This is a good visual to explain the importance of good content.

Neil Ferree's comment, October 31, 2013 11:19 AM
Social Shares is the New SEO. Sure, links let the bots know there are other sites (authors) who find your content useful but when someone publically "shares" your content with their social connections, this social signals evokes trust in the author's content and authority.

A communications strategy can set your company apart simply by being new, distinctive, and indicating that you're riding the cutting edge of technology. A few short years ago, that's what motivated many brands to embrace social media - so can social still impart that same distinctiveness?

Novelty alone is not enough - a social strategy has to make a real effort to manage the complicated realm of human relationships.

 

In a world where a big chunk of the global population is fluent in digital social practice, being cool is understanding how to use social tools reach, engage, and please people to the mutual benefit of your business and its customers. Brand definition in the interactive web is also crucial to maintaining a 'cool' business image. So what exactly does that mean for you and your business?

Join our panel as we delve into key questions defining a cool digital brand:

 

What do we mean by cool, as applied to a consumer or B2B business?

 

Can any business be cool by following best social practices? What companies exemplify savvy use of social behind their brands?

 

What’s uncool, and how can your business avoid landing there?
