New Social Media War Room: It's The Conversation, Stupid via @HaikuDeck

New Social Media War Room: It's The Conversation, Stupid via @HaikuDeck | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it

Social Media It's The Conversation, Stupid is about the new rules of branding being created by a social world. If the old War Room during the Clinton presidential campaign's motto was, "It's the ECONOMY Stupid" then the new Social Media War Room's motto is, "Social Media: It's The Conversation Stupid".

As we "talk amongst ourselves" more and more we become increasingly platform agnostic. The conversation is the brand. The conversation is the currency and THAT is a huge shift. A shift creating openings for "clean slate" brands to step in and call "trusted brands" old, stale and not relevant.

Want to appear "not relevant" use social media to PUSH, don't listen or respond and never curate or attribute kudos to followers. This new Haiku Deck discusses the new rules of branding in a social world.

What "new rules of branding" did we miss? Share your experience, thoughts and ideas and we will curate into the deck.

Social Media Referral Traffic +42%, $ Jumps + 63% and SMBs Rule [infographic]

Social Media Referral Traffic +42%, $ Jumps + 63% and SMBs Rule [infographic] | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it
In 2013, both large and small retailers earned business by making social media a priority. But it was the small merchants, operating exclusively online, that dominated the top ranks of the social media 500. This infographic takes a closer look at how SMBs can harness the power of smart placement, great content and nimble response.


Marty Note
I Loved this Line
"According to an Internet Retailer study, monthly referral traffic to e-commerce websites from Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, and YouTube increased 42 percent, while the revenue generated from those visitors jumped nealry 63 percent."

There has been a debate about social media and SEO. Google continues to insist SMM has no role in ranking. This is disingenuous because it isolates Google from its parts.

Social media, as this infographic shows conclusively, helps with important Internet concepts like traffic, revenue and loyalty. Those are the "parts" that Google's continued claims that SMM doesn't impact rankings discounts.

Everything impacts rankings. Everything that brings traffic to or back to a website impacts SEO rankings. It has to since that is the nature of the game we play.

Good conversation breaking out on G+

It's all about the interaction of consumers with products online. The recently released Google's new Hummingbird algorithm put more weight to how your business, product, or service is being talked about on the social Web.
