Accumulating Fans on Facebook Is Useless: Unless You Have Got What They Are Specifically Looking For

Accumulating Fans on Facebook Is Useless: Unless You Have Got What They Are Specifically Looking For | Easy Ways To Get Your Own List | Scoop.it

Robin Good: IBM Enterprise Marketing VP Yuchun Lee hits the Facebook marketing nail right on its head and finally say what most website owners and web marketing consultants often forget or do not even realize: "The idea that all Facebook fans are created equal is a myth perpetuated by many chief marketing officers I meet.

The confusion it creates is one reason why social-media channels have yet to achieve the same levels of success as their mobile counterparts.

 

These marketers are confusing correlation with causality.

 

They believe enticing a person to become a Facebook fan will magically make that individual more likely to spend more on their brand.

 

What comes next is a campaign designed solely to pull in new fans. Big mistake.

 

Think of it this way.

 

When the sun is out on a summer's day, people like to eat ice cream. There is a correlation between the two; when you pass an ice cream shop in July and August, you always see a line of customers out front. But ice cream does not cause the sun to come out, any more than being a Facebook fan causes a person to bring out her wallet, buy your products and services and become a passionate brand advocate."

 

Short but right. Recommended reading. 8/10

The SEO Puzzle: The Most Important Pieces [Infographic]

The SEO Puzzle: The Most Important Pieces [Infographic] | Easy Ways To Get Your Own List | Scoop.it

It doesn’t really matter how much you study it, it’s almost impossible to get the perfect SEO (Search Engine Optimization) score for any long period of time.

 

Each search engine has their own algorithm to rank websites, and as if that wasn’t complicated enough, they change that algorithm frequently in order to perfect it and make sure that the same sites don’t hog up the top positions simply because they’ve figured out the x-factor in the algorithm to dodge other more popular sites that have the traffic, content mass, and extensive Internet presence enough to be ranked at the top.

 

I would probably need an endless number of articles to cover all the different aspects of the perfect SEO, and if I tried to do that, I would probably not be able to pinpoint it anyway.

Sony Vaio Tap 20...20 Inch Tablet! Review

It's really just an all in one touchscreen PC with a battery. So what do you get in 880 dollar version? It will be running Windows 8 with some low to mid range specs:

 

- Core i3 processor

- 4GB of RAM

- 500GB hard drive

- 20-inch, 1,600 x 900

- display can lie flat

- the display is "drop-resistant"

- there's a rubber seal around the bezel (That makes the motherboard water resistant?)

- display at least uses IPS technology, so it's safe to say you can expect decent viewing angles

- NFC1.3-megapixel webcam

- dual speakers subwoofer
