5 Social Marketing Predictions for 2014 [Infographic & Scenttrail Note] - Offerpop

5 Social Marketing Predictions for 2014 [Infographic & Scenttrail Note] - Offerpop | Collaborative Revolution | Scoop.it
Want to stay ahead of the curve in 2014? We’ve predicted the trends and technologies that will impact marketers this year. Check out our latest infographic, and learn how brands embrace new social media strategies to drive engagement and spark…Read more →
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.

The CRM, CMS, Content, Inbound, Predictive Analytics A Bomb

The CRM, CMS, Content, Inbound, Predictive Analytics A Bomb | Collaborative Revolution | Scoop.it

Ain't A New Thing....But
Great lunch with +Phil Buckley today. He sold me +PrecisionLender and I'm not a banker. We disagree on one thing. Phil sees entry into CRM space by Hubspot as no big thing.

I think it is a HUGE thing and may be an even bigger opportunity for team at @Scoop.itsince few have experience in what it will take to manage MASSIVE data sets controlled by nested algorithms in near real time.

Email marketer such as Bronto have that experience so do large social nets. At http://www.Curagami.com we see an interesting A BOMB about to explode possibly disrupting the moribund CRM space and actually creating publishing tools that would eliminate the need for the content publishing and curation roulette we play now.

Interesting times. This link outlines a lunch conversation with Phil Buckley. Phil took the "no big thing" stance. In the short run he is right. In the long run maybe not.

CRM in Sales and Marketing Departments Is A Critical Success Factor (CSF)

CRM in Sales and Marketing Departments Is A Critical Success Factor (CSF) | Collaborative Revolution | Scoop.it
Sales teams have always been rather skeptical of CRM solutions and they may even avoid its implementation to a point that it may start having negative effects on business.


The main reason behind this behavior has been believed to be the nature of the sales team itself. While sales teams have been trained to interact effectively with other people, they have trouble bringing the same level of interactivity when communicating with CRM software. As this step is missed, the wheel stops rolling and has its effects on marketing as well.
