The secret psychology of effective social media relationships

The secret psychology of effective social media relationships | Persuasion and influence | Scoop.it

The psychology of social media marketing 

SUMMARY: Social media marketing works because people are most invested in the relationships they've taken an active role in nurturing, Fausto Mendez writes. "This social media-based relationship between a brand and a customer isn't as strong as the connection between two real people, but it is much stronger than the relationship a customer forms with a brand through TV, print or Web ads," Mendez writes.

Leilani Verona Steffany's curator insight, May 6, 2014 2:51 AM

Loved these three Ted Talks presentations! However I wanted to emphasis on Simon Sinek presentation about  the 'Goldan Circle' In which explains that the most successful organizations, icons etc etc... gain consumer loyalty and involvement by marketing and communication WHY they do what they do such as their beliefs, core values and reasons of existence, HOW they do it, and WHAT it is they offer. Which is a great strategy, and one in which makes perfect sense! (Like whyyyy would you do something you don't believe in?!?) Both Simon and Seth Godin's presentation correlate in regards to 'talking' and 'communicating' marketing messages to innovators and early adopters, in which represents roughly 15% of the population. These consumers are  more willing to try new products and listen to new ideas in which they share and spread to others when they believe in the cause or find the idea, product or service remarkable.

 

Simon Sinek gave an example in his speech at the end about Martin Luther Kings famous speech which involved very limited advertisement or invitational gestures in order for people to gain awareness about the whereabouts, time and the date of his speech, however on the day roughly 250,000 people who chose to be there for themselves, turned up from all parts of the US..how and why? Because Mr King believed in what he did, and preached and preached and preached about his beliefs, why he does what he does and people listened and believed  in the cause themselves, hence spreading the cause as believers, which would then spread from one to another. I thought this was a good example of how effective persuasion, and semi personal selling can effect high involvement decisions.

The 50 Best Social Psychology Books on Persuasion, Influence and Understanding Your Brain

The 50 Best Social Psychology Books on Persuasion, Influence and Understanding Your Brain | Persuasion and influence | Scoop.it

Have you ever wanted to be more persuasive, convincing, or if nothing else, understand how others try to influence you? …Of course! Who hasn’t?

 

Understanding how storytelling works in persuasion, influence, and change, and the research/neuroscience that informs it all is critical if anyone is going to work with stories effectively.

 

And hooray -- Gregory Ciotti has put together his list of favorite books that help us understand persuasion, influence, change, and stories more deeply. We'll all become more articulate and better at our craft -- whether you are a consultant, storyteller, entrepreneur or CEO.

 

Some of these I've read, some I haven't -- so I can't wait to dig into this list myself.

 

I hope we all learn lots and gain lots of useable insights for our work. Enjoy!
