Social Media Tools That Support Google+: Solutions for Small Business

Social Media Tools That Support Google+: Solutions for Small Business | WEBOLUTION! | Scoop.it

Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn can be found in the majority of social media management apps. It is with Google+ that things get a little bit more complicated: very few social media tools support it due to some technical challenges.

 

However, most social media managers would prefer a solution that would allow them posting to all social networks in one place, Google+ including.

 

In this post, you’ll find reference to all tools that are to date integrated with Google+. We’ll bring small business editions to a special focus and review social tools that (1) support Google+ and (2) the ones you can use for free or under $10 a month.

Researchers Identify Four BlackBerry Zitmo Variants

Researchers Identify Four BlackBerry Zitmo Variants | WEBOLUTION! | Scoop.it
Security researcher Denis Maslennikov identified a new Zitmo variant for Android using the same command and control (C&C) numbers as the BlackBerry versions. The samples were three .cod files and one .jar file with a .cod file inside.

 

Security researchers have identified new Zeus samples targeting Android and BlackBerry devices.

 

Despite its significant user base within enterprises, BlackBerry devices have managed to stay off the radar for malware writers. That may be ending, as Kaspersky Lab recently analyzed four new Zeus-in-the-mobile (Zitmo) samples targeting BlackBerry users in Germany, Spain, and Italy, Denis Maslennikov, a researcher at Kaspersky Lab wrote on the company's Securelist blog. These variants were communicating with two command-and-control cell phone numbers associated with a Swedish mobile operator.

7 Ways to Be a Successful Social Marketer

7 Ways to Be a Successful Social Marketer | WEBOLUTION! | Scoop.it

Social marketing is an advertising art that is widely utilized but less widely successful, forcing marketers who are looking for real, measurable results to hone their tactics. Review our list of seven ways to be a successful social marketer to help give you a leg up on the competition!

 

1. Build strong, targeted social media accounts.

Your social media accounts are only as useful as the friends and followers connected to them, making the first step of building those accounts absolutely crucial. Instead of simply working to obtain as many connections as possible, work instead to connect with like-minded people who are more likely to have an interest in what you have to offer.

Pinterest is quietly generating revenue by modifying user submitted pins. | WEBOLUTION! | Scoop.it

Breaking news that Pinterest is changing user submitted pins to make money. Are they now one of the biggest affiliates on the Internet?... That's the question [note MG]

 

I swore I wasn’t going to write about Pinterest again for a while after finishing a six part series of blog posts, but major developments keeping coming and no major news organizations seems to be covering them.

 

If you post a pin to Pinterest, and it links to an ecommerce site that happens to have an affiliate program, Pinterest modifies the link to add their own affiliate tracking code. If someone clicks through the picture from Pinterest and makes a purchase, Pinterest gets paid. They don’t have any disclosure of this link modification on their site, and so far, while it has been written about, no major news outlet has picked up on the practice or its implications.

 

Pinterest doing this is big news in my opinion for two reasons:

Your Social Media and SEO Game Plan for 2012 | WEBOLUTION! | Scoop.it

Every company should have a plan on how to establish themselves professionally on social media, taking into account various parameters such as volume of publication, SEO and organization. This article will give you support to make it more easily. [note Martin Gysler]

 

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you will have heard about the Google Panda update and what it did to many low-quality websites last year. It was more like a Google sniper attack on all the spam and rubbish sites. Honestly, this does not seem to be the end of the Panda: there is more to come, and we need to watch out.


The whole reason Google made these changes was to give Google users a good experience when they use Google search, and why not? When I look for something on Google the last thing I would want to see is rubbish information.

 

That is why, as SEO marketers, we need to take a different approach to ranking on Google and driving free organic traffic to our sites. If you have done any kind of SEO, you know what the key principles of ranking on Google are.

choosing the right keywords building a well optimized site with good content building quality backlinks.

"Big Data" is big business. Vraiment !

"Big Data" is big business. Vraiment ! | WEBOLUTION! | Scoop.it

Mails, recherche Internet, activité sur les réseaux sociaux... On estime que le volume de données produites double tous les deux ans. Une fois agrégé, filtré et analysé, ce déluge de data est un formidable outil aux mains des entreprises pour mieux connaître et cibler leurs clients. S'il suscite un véritable engouement, le big data, qualifié par certains de « nouvel or noir », pose la question du respect des données personnelles. Vie privée contre big business, qui va gagner ?

 

Big Data. C'est la nouvelle expression à la mode, qui succède au cloud computing dans les dernières tendances high-tech à adopter sans tarder. C'est un ensemble de technologies et de méthodes consistant à analyser, à des fins généralement prédictives, le flot de données produites par les entreprises, les organisations et les individus, mais aussi les objets s'ils sont connectés, dans des volumes et à une vitesse sans précédent. Un concept un peu flou, apparu il y a deux, trois ans, qui englobe les mails, SMS, photos, vidéos, commentaires ou changements de statuts sur les réseaux sociaux, sessions de connexion, relevés d'étiquettes ou de capteurs électroniques, signaux de géolocalisation, etc., envoyés à foison chaque minute partout dans le monde.

Facebook Pages Are a Bad Investment for Small Businesses - Forbes

Facebook Pages Are a Bad Investment for Small Businesses - Forbes | WEBOLUTION! | Scoop.it

In my last four posts I’ve shared some of the lessons that I’ve learned from helping set up lullubee.com, a new business that makes and markets kits for making crafts. After we launched the site and figured out how to take ordersand ship products, the next task we faced was to get more visitors to the site, and ultimately more sales. In the next few posts I’ll cover several of the techniques we implemented, but in this post I’ll focus on Facebookmarketing.

 

The first thing we did was to set up our Facebook Page, as recommended in Facebooks “Four Steps to Business success on Facebook“.

 

Once you set up your page, you need to get users to visit it and, hopefully, to “like” it. The reason you want people to like your page is that your posts will then appear on that users news feed. Over time this will allow you, according to Facebook, to start “building loyalty and creating opportunities to generate sales.” The first method to get likes is to promote it on your own website using Facebook social plugins. As this costs nothing, you may as well do it, but the percentage of visitors that click on these is typically very small. The second is to purchase Facebook Ads that persuade people to visit your page and to like it. The irony of spending money to promote our Facebook page instead of our site was not lost on us.

Catherine Luense's curator insight, January 25, 2013 6:11 AM

I agree with Forbes! I feel like FB pages are getting more expensive to own and operate. I make more connections on Twitter per day then I do on FB in a week. Every since I converted my Profile into a page it has been a nightmare! When I try to connect with a person or service, upon login, I am directed to their ad campaign page. It is getting so annoying! G+, Pinrest, and Twitter have become my marketing method of choice. Has anyone noticed this as well?

Martin Gysler's comment, January 26, 2013 10:56 AM
Catherine thank you for your information. It's interesting to hear that you had problems with the conversion of your Facebook profile. I had never heard this information, maybe because I've never done this work for me or another. With regard to marketing opportunities, they may vary depending on the target audience. To say that Twitter is better than Facebook or another platform, remains difficult in my opinion.
Martin Gysler's comment, January 26, 2013 11:00 AM
Of course Ted, it's also an approach. I think everyone should make his choice according to his opinion.

The 5 Types of Social Followers that Every Business Needs [INFOGRAPHIC]

The 5 Types of Social Followers that Every Business Needs [INFOGRAPHIC] | WEBOLUTION! | Scoop.it

When you’re a brand establishing yourself on social platforms such as Twitter and Facebook, in the very early days you’re usually less concerned about who is following you and more about how many...

It’s superficial, of course, but large numbers of followers on Twitter and Likes on your Facebook Page do have provide a level of social proof that makes you more attractive to new followers, and new Likes – when someone sees that you’re already popular, they’re far more likely to make the leap and get on board themselves.

But for businesses looking to maximize the ROI of their social media strategy, how many is always far, far less important than who. Pretty soon you realise that a big number is meaningless unless it’s actually converting into brand awareness, website footfall and sales – so who should you be looking to attract?

Early adopters, social sharers and power-users are all pivotal in helping your brand reach critical max, but they’re not alone. Indeed, lurkers and even haters can become powerful influencers if you take the time to engage and inspire them.

This infographic takes a look at the five types of social follower that every business needs...

7 Essential Tips for WordPress Beginners | WEBOLUTION! | Scoop.it

Whether you're new to WordPress or a seasoned pro, you need to make sure you're implementing these 7 techniques to get the results you want from your site. [note]

 

Raise your hand if this sounds familiar …

 

You meet someone and they say all the right things. They’re full of compliments and accolades.

 

Except, something bugs you about them. Their words don’t quite match their actions. They can be forgetful, and even mean. Eventually, the glow wears off, and you see them for who they really are.

 

It’s not what people say, it’s what they do that makes a relationship work.

 

And that’s how it is with your WordPress website, especially if you’re just getting started.

 

That’s because you can’t just talk about how great WordPress is and expect it to work for you. You can’t just read about it, either.
