12 Simple Ways Marketers Can Humanize Their Brand | HubSpot

12 Simple Ways Marketers Can Humanize Their Brand | HubSpot | NYL - News YOU Like | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article:
"In an inbound marketing age where businesses are expected to get to know their target audience, develop personas, maintain an active social media presence, and be genuinely helpful to their leads and customers, it seems like there's room to develop a relationship between companies and consumers beyond just the transactional.

 

People do business with people they like and trust, and it's really, really hard to trust a company.

If your company comes off as cold, corporate, or faceless, it might be time to find a way to humanize your brand a little more. Here's how.

 

1) Write an 'About Us' page that's actually good.

2) Kill the business babble.

3) Inject a sense of humor into your content.

4) Publish photos of your team being themselves.

5) Introduce your community manager.

6) Sign your social updates.

7) Have conversations with fans, followers, and commenters.

8) Encourage employees to be social on behalf of your company.

9) Admit your mistakes.

10) Poke fun at yourself.

11) Sign your emails with your name. Like, your name.

12) Take off your marketer hat once in a while."

 

Each way is analyzed with detailed information. Read full interesting article here:

What Panda, Penguin and Social Media Really Mean for Brands

What Panda, Penguin and Social Media Really Mean for Brands | NYL - News YOU Like | Scoop.it

"An article recently published on Fast Company has caused a bit of a stir in the content marketing and search engine optimization (SEO) communities. Written by Veronica Fielding, CEO of Digital Brand Expressions, it explains how the recent Panda and Penguin Google algorithm updates mean that social engagement rather than search engine trickery yields top results.

 

Social media, including Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, YouTube and LinkedIn, also plays a role in the updated algorithms but not in the exact manner Fielding described in her Fast Company article.

First, some social-media channels weigh far more than others, mainly because of technical barriers that search crawlers see when indexing them. The weight of these channels are based on how much information Google can crawl without being stonewalled by the social channels.

 

So, Let’s take a look at what Panda, Penguin and social media really mean for brands".
