Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Never ceases to amaze me how often GooglePlus comes up as a great way to disrupt a business vertical. Competitors are beating themselves silly on other social networks while doing next to nothing on G+. Why is this? This post speculates and looks at the "inner-mafia" nature of Internet marketing to come to some surprising conclusions.

Women Collaborating With Social Media More Than Men [Infographic]

Women Collaborating With Social Media More Than Men [Infographic] | Collaborative Revolution | Scoop.it

While men buy into the productivity of social media use in the workplace more than women, more women actually use those tools for collaboration than their male colleagues.

Marty Note
I wanted to write a book called the Feminine Future because women are so much BETTER at word-of-mouth marketing than men it was clear marketers should be sure messages resonated with women. This is before the social media explosion. That thought seems even more valid now except instead of crafting language to appeal to a segment invite them in and ask how they would create your marketing if they were you.

This infographic and article underscore the Feminine Future.

Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Great Infographic

1. Consumer Becomes Content Marketers - Agree!
Yes consumers are a MUST now with Google's algorithm changes that demand social confirmation for content. Content without social confirmation is a website talking to itself about itself. This realization means we need to RETHINK content.


The days of boring services pages or other pages where marketers talk to themselves about themselves are over killed by Google's incorporation of social shares into the mix as a confirmation of Navneet Panda's revolutionary new faster spider.


2. Brands Get Social - Agree!
#1 leads directly to brands getting social. Brands must have a tribe of supporters and you can't create tribes without authenticity, sharing and great content.


Sure there is going to be a "content shock" where content marketing loses some of its punch, but don't ignore the "tribe creation" nature of content marketing. No one will share content with a website that doesn't share with confidence and authority.

3. Marriage of Email and Social - Agree!

Email is changing. Email will become so connected to social media marketing where one begins and the other ends will be hard to decipher. Email connected to Facebook, Twitter, GPlus, Scoop.it and other tools is less PUSH and more relevant community built on personas and segments.


Email and social media marketing are about to become indistinguishable from one another working hand in hand, using predictive analytics that mash Facebook, Twitter and Google Analytics data into BIG DATA actionable patterns.

4. Brands Figure Our Social ROI - Agree!

So much of social media marketing's ROI will come from ideas we can only imagine now. Intranets, customer service and HR are places SMM will thrive, help and change the nature of business. 2014 will see much less argument about social media and more experimentation and return.

5. Brands Will Run More Frequent Social Campaigns - Agree!
We will know brands are "getting" social media when their following numbers go up. I remember having a conversation with the last CEO I reported to who believed following few back was a statement of how elite and valuable his company was.


Just the opposite is the case. We should see a growing realization of what it takes to become a content marketing AUTHORITY online including FOLLOWING BACK a large number of followers. Following back makes communications easier and provides more input into a brand's content marketing engine.

Day In Life Of Internet Is A Day In OUR Lives Too [Infographic] | Collaborative Revolution | Scoop.it

'There are close to two and-a-half billion people online around the world – this number has grown 566 percent since the year 2000 – and 70 percent of them use the internet every day. As you might imagine, with that kind of presence, which amounts to more than a third of the global population, quite a lot happens over the course of each 24 hours.

The Internet never sleeps.  Is it possible to even fathom the idea of any given moment without someone in the world being connected to the Internet for one reason or another?  It wasn’t that long ago that the Internet wasn’t even a thing, but anymore it’s something that we can’t do without.  ztake a look at “A Day in the Life of the Internet”...

Web Hosting Simplified [Infographic]

Web Hosting Simplified [Infographic] | Collaborative Revolution | Scoop.it

I will simplify web host even further. 

Martin's Rules of Ecommerce Web Hosting

* Buy more web hosting than you need.

* Host with the people that create your website (if at all possible).

* Video or big graphics need a Content Delivery Network (CDN).

* Be aware that CDNs can wreck SEO.

* No host is perfect and up all the time, what matters is how fast they come back and that down time is learned from and avoided.

Social Media Work Flow RESET

Social Media Work Flow RESET | Collaborative Revolution | Scoop.it

I think this Infographic has aged. If you follow its outline you risk talking to yourself about yourself, a social media No No. Here is how I would rest the ideal 50 social media work week (as if such a thing actually existed :):


8 Hours Curating
4 Hours Bogging (writing)

4 Hours Listening (checking Topsy and quantifying results)

4 Hours Conversations (curating comments, commenting on others)

4 Hours Research, Planning, Analytics

4 Contignecy & Emergencies

4 Movements (i.e. "super campaigns")

8 Hours OPEN

============

40 hours


I don't believe is schedule every minute of any social media outline. There must be larger blocks for responding, planning, analytics and tweaking. I also don't like "campaigns" as much as created temed movements.

G+ The Most Disruptive Social Net: 20 Reasons Why You Should Be Using Google Plus [Infographic]

G+ The Most Disruptive Social Net: 20 Reasons Why You Should Be Using Google Plus [Infographic] | Collaborative Revolution | Scoop.it

Via Gust MEES, Thomas Faltin
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

If you only have time to learn and interact on one social network make it G+. Google Plus is the most disruptive of the social nets. More a suite of powerful tools than a social network, G+ is derided but don't let critics fool you. Great web marketing is, at its core, a contrarian pursuit. When you are in a room and people laugh when something is mentioned, laughing in a way that says they would NEVER use that thing, then that becomes what you want to do :).

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, March 10, 2013 9:05 AM

G+ is catching up big time for many reasons.  Among these reasons is the Hangout integration.  

 

We just facilitated a remote 1.5 day leadership development session with Hangouts and it was fantastic.  

 

Google is sticking to their strategy and their value is starting to win people over.  I was never a fan and, through valuable features, I am changing my perspective on the suite of offerings.

 

This is a relevant infographic.
