The exposure part is really important because it helps to shape our brand, and it helps to build a community. I think that one of the best ways to go about things at this stage of SEO is not as hard or harsh as some marketers might picture it.

The Role Of Social Media In Your Content Marketing Strategy | Social Media Today

The Role Of Social Media In Your Content Marketing Strategy | Social Media Today | Networking 4 Business | Scoop.it

Content marketing has gone from being the future of digital marketing, to the here and now, but where does social media sit within the overall content marketing mix?


Our view on social’s role in content marketing is threefold:

1.  Social should play a key role in informing content strategy

2.  Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, YouTube, Instagram, LinkedIn and so on are all valid platforms that should be used as part of your content strategy

3.  Social media (particularly Facebook) has a unique ability to amplify your content placed on other channels....

This says it all...

"And remember, relationships are rarely 50/50 at any given instant in time.  You can’t always feel 100%, or a full 50% of a relationship’s whole – life is simply too unpredictable for that.  So on the days when you can only give 20%, the other person must give 80%, and vice versa.  It’s never been about balancing steady in the middle; healthy relationships are about two people who are willing to make adjustments for each other in real time as needed, and give more when the other person can’t help but give a little less."

Firm aims to put dollar value on social influence

Firm aims to put dollar value on social influence | Networking 4 Business | Scoop.it

Online gaming companies are sizing up their top dogs to determine which players are worth the most, according to one analytics company executive.


Using a learning algorithm, online social gamers are being ranked by their estimated dollar value, a number that takes into account a user's contacts, specific transactions and other behaviors, according to Ninja Metrics, a company that performs predictive analytics.

 

The algorithm can be used to calculate the so-called social value of users in nongaming environments too, said Ninja Metrics CEO Dmitri Williams. 

But in order to be the most accurate and useful, it must be applied to sites and apps where transactions are frequent, like movie ticket or song sales, Williams told "Big Data Download."

"Because there's an algorithm here that has to learn something, the thing has to happen more than once or twice for us to really feel confident about it," he said.


In online gaming, currently the only environment in which the algorithm is being used, the predicted value of individual gamers isn't perfectly accurate. 

By comparing earlier predictions of a gamer's social value to actual outcomes, Ninja Metrics has found that its algorithm is 90 percent accurate on average, Williams said.

Whether Leadership or Business...Confidence, Trust, honesty and integrity are key.

 

"Confidence is actually a subset of trust. It refers to a person's competency or ability to perform a task. The other dimension of trust is morally-based; it means a person won't deceive us. When we say a person is trustworthy, we're usually referring to this dimension of trust and expressing our belief in that person's honesty and integrity."

Consumer Psychology at the E-Commerce Checkout

Consumer Psychology at the E-Commerce Checkout | Networking 4 Business | Scoop.it

E-Commerce and online shopping has become a significant stream of revenue for companies worldwide, but how much do we really know about the consumer psychology behind web purchases?

Research has shown that a consumer will assess a product within 90 seconds and will then make a quick initial judgement on whether they decide to make a purchase or not. Video is another big factor when it comes to influencing consumers to make a transaction. Nearly one third of online shoppers bought a product after being influenced by video and 50 percent of customers have more confidence in a product after watching a video online.

Trusted resources such as product reviews have become a massive part of how people shop online. A whopping 85 percent of people said they read online reviews before making a transaction. Two thirds of customers read up to six online reviews in order to trust a business/product enough to complete a purchase.

Why do online shoppers get to the checkout point and then abandon the purchase? The average figure for checkout abandonment rate is 67.4 percent. The main reasons for abandonment are hidden charges and having to register before buying. Other reasons include lengthy checkout process, unclear delivery details and a phone number not included on the website.
