8 Twitter Best Practices | Enterprise Social Media | Scoop.it
Of all the popular social media channels, I’d say that Twitter is probably the most intimidating. But once you learn its unique language of tweets, hashtags, and handles, Twitter opens up a world of opportunities to promote your cause or business.

10 Awesome Free Tools To Make Infographics

10 Awesome Free Tools To Make Infographics | Enterprise Social Media | Scoop.it

Maybe you want create your own infographic, here 10 tools to support you to do it. [note mg]

 

Information graphics, visual representations of data known as infographics, keep the web going these days. Web users, with their diminishing attention spans, are inexorably drawn to these shiny, brightly coloured messages with small, relevant, clearly-displayed nuggets of information. They’re straight to the point, usually factually interesting and often give you a wake-up call as to what those statistics really mean.

 

Who can resist a colourful, thoughtful venn diagram anyway? In terms of blogging success, infographics are far more likely to be shared than your average blog post. This means more eyeballs on your important information, more people rallying for your cause, more backlinks and more visits to your blog. In short, a quality infographic done well could be what your blog needs right now.

Without The Right Message, Twitter Is No Better For Your Brand Than A Fax Machine

Without The Right Message, Twitter Is No Better For Your Brand Than A Fax Machine | Enterprise Social Media | Scoop.it

"A great lesson in humility... I think this article touches the major problem of social media, too much blah blah and personal promotion and not enough real useful information for all. It's to each of us to finding the right ratio between the two... I have an idea about that, and you? [note mg]"

 

The best heading in this article: You're Not More Important Than Your Audience

 

True that. To be an effective social business, you need to turn around a few internal attitudes. You have a chance to know your customers and prospects as more than demographics or zip codes. How you seize this opportunity may determine your future success.

5 Ways to Kick Start Your Social Business

5 Ways to Kick Start Your Social Business | Enterprise Social Media | Scoop.it

"The line between marketing and HR appears to being redefined as we enter the era of the social business. Whilst a CEO will clearly be able to point to a set of strategic responsibilities for HR, the role of HR is evolving as employee engagement, branding and business strategies blend to create a broader social ecosystem.

 

"Businesses are becoming more open and transparent as the line between customers and employees becomes blurred, communications open and people can clearly identify the match of an organisational culture to the brand promise. Do people act pro-actively in customer service, are they really focused on employee development, corporate sustainability….does this organizational still make sense?"

 

Social will change corporate structures, as this article points out.

Social Networking Lessons of 2011

Social Networking Lessons of 2011 | Enterprise Social Media | Scoop.it

"I like to call 2011 "The Year of Social Media." Small businesses, franchises, nonprofits and entrepreneurs all got into the social-media game -- throwing spaghetti against the wall to see what stuck. To many, it probably seemed a chaotic mess of apps and gadgets flooding the market. Businesses had a lot of options to try to connect with customers, and some clear lessons emerged from the chaos."

 

I particularly like the first lesson"

 

Loyal customers are your best channel to new business.

Combining Content Curation with Customer Communities

Combining Content Curation with Customer Communities | Enterprise Social Media | Scoop.it

Good piece about how to move your curation efforts forward. There are a lot of posts on this but it's always good to see apparently the same thing presented from different angles as this can help paint the entire picture and perhaps reach some people that other perspectives miss.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

"What’s the best way to lure customers to your web site and to your wares and to keep them coming back for more?

 

1) Provide compelling, seductive, timely, and relevant information to your target audience—not sales pitches, but authoritative information from objective third parties and great tips from their peers.

 

2) Make sure that targeted information turns up everywhere your target audience is likely to go—not just on your web site, but also on others’ sites, in the social media conversations they follow, and in the news.

 

3) Supplement your online forums with relevant tidbits of 3rd party information that address your customers’ concerns, pique their interest, and stimulate dialog.

 

It’s tough to grow a vibrant online customer community. It takes a lot of care and feeding and a lot of fresh information to keep your audience engaged."
