So you think you need a social strategy? Sure, but that’s just part of it | memeburn

So you think you need a social strategy? Sure, but that’s just part of it | memeburn | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

In 2012 there was a mad rush from companies to understand the value of social in all its complexities. What could social media do? What value could it provide? How could the company engage with its users? As a result there have been numerous traditional agencies suddenly becoming digital marketing specialists and providing their clients with complete social strategies.

 

There have been promises of guaranteed followers, likes and shares which may or may not have been achieved. There was (and still is) so much jargon that many businesses were sucked into the social media marketing black hole. Please note that many of those were successful and marketing teams breathed a sigh of relief as Directors, CEOs and other high-ranking officials nodded their heads in appreciation of the high number of followers, likes and shares.

 

However, unlike their marketing counter parts, these high rankers have a goal that must be met – ROI. Return on investment is difficult to measure from a social media perspective. What is the value of a like, follow or share? Can it be equated to the lowest possible sale value of a single unit of product? No – because for every 10 likes only one user purchased the product! This is just an example, but remains true in essence....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

Do you know your ROS - return on social?

The Next Big Thing In Responsive Design | Fast Company

The Next Big Thing In Responsive Design | Fast Company | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Responsive design, which allows designers and developers to build websites that adapt to every screen size, is one of the most empowering web tools to be adopted in the last decade.


But adapting to the screen is only the first frontier of a new, responsive web. Today, users expect online experiences that not only respond to what device they're using, but also their location, time of day, what they’ve already read, and events happening in real time.


To capture a user’s attention for the next generation of the web, you’ll need more than just responsive design. You’ll need a responsive philosophy....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

What's a responsive philosophy like you doing in a place like this? Just kidding. But it is a good question ponder when thinking about the future of responsive web design.

This year, The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center pulled off this feat using a brand journalism approach. Here's how it attracted so much public attention to the news so quickly....

Whoa, this PR firm just crossed the line

Whoa, this PR firm just crossed the line | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

...Yes, that appears to be an attempt to bribe a journalist to mention clients in stories he is doing for us and other media clients.

"I've seen some pretty incredible PR pitches — including offers to have the PR agency write the story and put the reporter's byline on it — but this is one of the most brazen I've seen," said Jim Romenesko, a noted media critic. "A publicist who suggests paying a major news outlet for slipping a client's name into copy has no idea how journalists do their jobs — or how ethical 99 percent of them are."

Jeff Domansky's insight:

Violates PRSA ethics let alone best PR practices. Looks like an agency that's out of it's element and selling to ill-informed clients. Not to mention creating a negative opinion of PR pros. Thanks to Steven Spenser for the link.

Amber McGuirk's curator insight, Today, 7:02 PM

The fact that this is still happening is kind of shocking. I know the line's always been fuzzy but unless the PR firm is sending out a sample for a review or something along those lines this really shouldn't be happening. I'm not sure where the ethics were on this one or even why the director of operations sent out such a vague e-mail regarding this issue.

Mark Little: ‘This is the Golden Age of Storytelling’ | Mediashift | PBS

Mark Little: ‘This is the Golden Age of Storytelling’ | Mediashift | PBS | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Attending a wedding in Ireland several years ago, Mark Little saw fellow guests looking at their phones, as they learned that Michael Jackson had died. Soon, the group was dancing to Thriller as a tribute to the late star. That dance, Little said, happened 15 minutes before the Los Angeles Times had even officially announced Jackson’s death. At that moment, he said he thought, “Wow, that’s the way news is being consumed.”


As the founder of Storyful — a global news agency that finds, collects, and verifies social-media content — Little has served as a leader of our massive information shift: How is news changing? How are stories changing? And what are the ethics involved as traditional media outlets transition from being the gatekeeper to being part of a worldwide reporting network in which every citizen can contribute to — or even completely tell — our world’s most important stories?...

Jeff Domansky's insight:

Here's a thoughtful look at why stories still matter.

Meet Dadaviz: Curated, YouTube-Style Distribution Platform for Data Visualizations

Meet Dadaviz: Curated, YouTube-Style Distribution Platform for Data Visualizations | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

“If I read news without dataviz I get a bit nauseous, I don’t have patience for words alone anymore. Nor infographics”. This helps explain why marketing expert and consultant León Markovitz co-founded Dadaviz, nicknamed by some as “the YouTube of data visualizations“. Online since June 11th, it’s a collection of the best dataviz selected from different sources by an invite-only community.


Want to learn the Who’s Who of political relationships in the Middle East, what’s the average commute time in the U.S. or where do the visitors of the Oktoberfest come from? This is the place to go.


Most of the published material is “curated” from external sources (the Middle East dataviz was taken from the Economist), but there’s also a certain amount of original work. Every visualization shared on Dadaviz links to the author, original link and data source, when available, so people can find out more and get more context if they wish. If someone wants to use a dataviz, they can reach directly the creators, or type “/embed” at the end of any Dadaviz link -which gives them an embed of the image with all the attribution already in place. Or they can simply share it on social media....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

Dadaviz is an awesome resource for anyone looking to add visuals to their content, marketing or communications. Highly recommended.   9.5/10

Alaska news reporter Charlo Greene quits live on air to campaign for marijuana legislation

Alaska news reporter Charlo Greene quits live on air to campaign for marijuana legislation | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it
A news reporter in Alaska dramatically quit her job live on air so she could campaign for the legalisation of marijuana in the US state.


Charlo Greene, a reporter for Alaska-based news channel KTVA-TV, revealed herself to be the owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club, a "medical marijuana collective" that serves patients throughout Alaska.


Greene has reported on the club several times without ever revealing her connection to it. However, during one segment of the news programme, she revealed herself to be the president of the pro-marijuana legalisation group before adding "f**k it, I quit".


Following her shock resignation, the camera cuts to a visibly stunned main anchor, who stumbles over an apology before adding "we'll...we'll be right back"....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

Well, some days are like that. Job up in smoke... and the poor anchor left dangling.

Native Adpocalypse! The NYT Sponsors an Upworthy-Style Listicle on Mashable

Native Adpocalypse! The NYT Sponsors an Upworthy-Style Listicle on Mashable | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Those 11 inspiring videos are all original feel-good New York Times productions, and as Digiday’s Lucia Moses noted this morning, the ad is intended to drive subscription signups forThe Times, with a prominent call to action at the top of the piece imploring readers to “Get with The Times.


”While this may seem bizarre and a little too meta for this early in the morning, it’s actually a shrewd move by The Times to grow their audience. Clearly, they’ve identified Mashable readers as potential Times readers and subscribers, and as a result, they’ve come to them with a month-long campaign of branded posts._


The Times also punched up the titles of the individual videos for a Mashable audience. “Tattoo Artist Gives Breast Cancer Survivors Nipples and Hope” was originally titled “The Nipple Artist,” and “Can Your Grandma Pump Iron Like This?” was called “Shirley and the Bodybuilder.”...

Jeff Domansky's insight:

“11 Inspiring Videos That Will Restore Your Faith in Humanity” sounds like your standard Tuesday-morning Upworthy offering, but it’s actually a “BrandSpeak” post on Mashable paid for by The New York Times.


If you're having trouble following the bouncing ball and the marketing strategy here, I'm not surprised. It's actually fairly agile marketing by the New York Times, if a little bit out of the box. I look forward to learning if it works.

Our researchers mainly follow the principles and rules laid down by the above important policy and rules.Under Articles 2.4, 3.6, 3.10&11, 8.1(b) of the By-laws of the Commission of the Churches on international affairs, we have posted our research report in United Nations Global Compact which containing of solving of problems between Christians, Jews, Muslims and Hindus in the world. In accordance with Articles 3.12 of the above By-Laws, it is a duty of commission of Churches to maintain and provide for the maintenance of contacts with International bodies such as the United Nations and its agencies include regional bodies and other non governmental Organisations, which will assist in the attainment of the aims of the Commission. The matter has being brought it to the notice of the World Churches Council and the Commission of the Churches asked its notice on the matter to the United Nations for your appropriate decisions. ?The World Churches Council Policy Paper on Social Justice and Common Goods is the best policy to the World peace and unity solutions, which has been published on 22 March 2011 and the same is in accordance with Psalm 85. The Church cannot succeed if it, isolates itself, Not only must Christians reach out to Muslims and other faiths in the spirit of ecumenism, but there is a need to embrace other people of different philosophical convictions. This requires ideological tolerance, maturity and self assurance in what one believes in. Such coalition building is made easier by choosing issues that unite organizations and movements and which have less potential causing divisions. At the same time we need an honest and inventive method of dealing with differences. The global movement for economic justice relies considerably on policy analysis and research conducted by hundreds if not thousands of academics researchers and scholars. ?Our consequences of the changing power relations in today's world is that there is more room in the public sphere for the affirmation of collective values and principles, experience proves that an informed public opinion can be powerful today, and can change governments public and international agendas. Again Churches are challenged to make use of this opportunity. They need to read the signs of time and to make their voices heard by responding to peoples cries for justice and dignity, and by speaking truth to the powers- whoever and wherever their may be. ?Christians do not have ready made answers and solutions to propose. The Bible offers guidelines (love, sharing, justice for the poor) but does not defined one "Christian" economy or "Christian" politics. ?Churches and Church related organizations can initiate public debates and largely use media means to reach a broader constituency, furthermore, regional thematic discussions can be facilitated with the ecumenical family. WCC should develop specific analysis depending on the context. ?What are theological implications for commodification common goods? ?How shall we ensure the participation all people in managing common goods in the world? ?How do we deal with power imbalances in the world? ?How can the ecumenical family engage itself effectively and in a coherent and convincing way in addressing global power imbalance? ?How can WCC lead a climate change campaign with social justice as a focus? ?What kind of collective values can be draw for the Churches to guide them in addressing the problem of commodification of common goods? ?The above questions have been answered in our research materials available at http://www.goldenduas.com and alsohttp://www.facebook.com/research of international development solutions and the same are to be discussed by the Churches, public and all its organizations in the interest of public safety, peace, unity, health, wealth, faith, interfaith ?                 Under this circumstances, it is just and necessary that UK, USA, Cambridge, Churches on the International Affairs are requested to accept our research paper and also our research organization as an organization under other faith category to assist the commission to achieve its goal of International Peace and climate changes solutions for the benefit of world community especially Christians, Jewish and Muslims, under the by-law 3.11 of CCIA. In view of the aforementioned submissions in the interest of maintenance of International Peace and Security, UN may be pleased to authorize our organization in the name and style of` Research on International Development Solutions `and also our research report in confirmatory with U/A 96 of the present Charter read with U/A 23 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and thus render Justice.  Now, Palestine Muslims are fighting with Israel , both countries are affected and innocent people are killed frequently which is against the Quranic verses 7:137 & 5:33 that no one can claim Israel Government areas which is a place of Israel People but not Muslim or Christian and they can only Allow worship in the Holy Places of Israel .

Jeff Guzzo's curator insight, September 22, 12:31 AM

The article A Glimpse Into Marketers’ Social Media Strategies is an article about how 92% of marketers say that social media is important for their businesses. The article discusses that a lot of money and effort is being put into social media strategy in order to increase brand awareness or help with sales. The top social business priorities for large marketers is to: build brand awareness, build brand preference, drive direct leads or sales, increase customer loyalty, and provide customer service. The issue discussed in the article is that only 37% of marketers surveyed reported that they are unable to measure social return on investments.

 

I agree that social media is a very important part of businesses today. I think that it is a way to drastically increase brand awareness, and consequently result in more sales due to social media being such a large part of consumers’ lives. I understand the need for wanting a reliable way of tracking ROI, and I think marketers who are successful in finding the ROI should collaborate with the marketers who are not so successful to provide potentially useful insight to help address this issue.

Social-Media Demographics Report: Differences in Gender, Age, Income at Top Networks – Stephen's Lighthouse | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Here are a few of the key takeaways from the BI Intelligence report:

- Facebook still skews significantly female. Women in the U.S. are more likely to use Facebook than men by about 10 percentage points, according to a 2013 survey of social network adoption.

- Facebook remains the top social network for U.S. teens. Nearly half of teen Facebook users say they’re using the site more than last year, and Facebook has more daily teen users than any other social network.

- Instagram has edged out Facebook and Twitter in terms of prestige among young users. U.S. teens now describe Instagram as “most important,” while Facebook and Twitter lost ground on this measure, according to Piper Jaffray’s twice yearly teen survey. The survey also found that 83% of U.S. teens in wealthy households were on Instagram.

- LinkedIn is actually more popular than Twitter among U.S. adults. LinkedIn’s core demographic are those aged between 30 and 49, i.e. those in the prime of their career-rising years. Not surprisingly,  LinkedIn also has a pronounced skew toward well-educated users....

How Brand Influencers And Brand Ambassadors Are Different

How Brand Influencers And Brand Ambassadors Are Different | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Brand Influencers and Brand Ambassadors are not the same thing! Here's how to identify them as well as how to use them in your influencer marketing.


So how can marketers make sure that their message is the one to get heard and absorbed?Marketers have realized that there is a better chance that their message will be picked up and acted on if it has more credibility than a conventional advertisement's. They have understood that cynicism among customers can be overcome when, for example, family and friends recommend a product for use.


This knowledge, and the might of social media, can be used to market products indirectly to potential consumers. By encouraging influential people to talk about products and recommend them, marketers quickly score a unique advantage over their competitors....

The Difference Between Content Marketing and Inbound Marketing (and Why It Matters)

The Difference Between Content Marketing and Inbound Marketing (and Why It Matters) | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it
Before we dive into what the audience said, I’ll share my perspective. I believe content marketing is a subset of inbound marketing, but like the Arc Reactor to Iron Man, there is no inbound without content. Content is inbound’s lifeblood. What I think, of course, doesn’t matter at all.


Ultimately, it comes down to what marketers think. And it turns out, we all think a lot alike.

Front-office (marketing, sales, services) professionals generally agree that content marketing is a subset of inbound marketing. Marketers are particularly united in this definition....

BP’s Bad PR Means Opportunity For Investors

BP’s Bad PR Means Opportunity For Investors | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it
One of the biggest oil giants in the world may be going down…British Petroleum (BP (NYSE:BP)) has been run through the wringer ever since the disastrous oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico back in April 2010. Since then, the company has faced a barrage of lawsuits and bad publicity.


And now, the U.S. Justice Department is seeking fines as high as $20 billion for alleged negligence. Eventually, though, a company can’t shoulder the burden of billions of dollars in fines and legal costs, and is forced to choose the path of least resistance. Is bankruptcy the only option left for this oil supermajor?


Staying Strong
The problem with BP is that it makes money – lots of it – and the federal government wants a piece of the action. After all, there’s nothing like sticking it to “Big Oil” to cultivate a popular profile.


The company has already put aside or paid close to $40 billion related to the spill. Much of that came from cash on hand, income, and the sale of assets....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

It's hard to fathom that BP can still survive with the billions of dollars in fines, the cleanup costs and still increase dividends for shareholders. Will be interesting to see how it plays out in the future.

Brand Publishers Are Ditching Facebook in Favor of Microsites

Brand Publishers Are Ditching Facebook in Favor of Microsites | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Brand publishers are more aware that they’re really just renting social media space on Facebook and are moving resources away from the social network.
 

One agency said its clients are pulling away from Facebook in “dramatic numbers”—reallocating their resources to microsites and alternate social channels like LinkedIn—after the agency’s social media managers saw a “dramatic dip” in reach for their messaging over the last 16 months. They attributed this decline to Facebook’s EdgeRank algorithm, which curates the content users see in their News Feeds.


“Brands don’t own what happens on Facebook, and as organic reach has been absolutely eviscerated, they remain aware of that,” said Forrester analyst Nate Elliott, adding that marketers have been telling him that they no longer see Facebook as a viable marketing channel....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

Facebook has a big credibility problem with marketers and advertisers. As long as it remains unpredictable and unreliable as a platform, advertisers will avoid it.

Fellow Executives, It's Time To Go Back To School | MediaPost | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

...Today, cross-channel attribution can give us more insight into the customer journey than we've ever had before. Where they were once imaginary things meant to illustrate the way marketing efforts work together, today we can literally see our marketing funnels in action, visualized on-screen. Since the conceptual is becoming less important than the actual, the lines between stages of the funnel are blurring, and the flow of the funnel is becoming all that matters.


Because of this meshing of channels, we are witnessing a need for approaches to marketing that embrace the convergence of media. Who cares what PR did? What does it matter if it was your content marketing team or your sales enablement team who used to get the credit for a new tranche of prospects? Today, a marketing win is a win for marketing, and a win for digital.


Some companies are investing in extracting insights from digital channels that can be applied to digital channels, regardless of departmental titles. They do this for clients, but more and more, their marketing analytics teams also help them understand their business better....

Can A Search Engine Make You More Creative?

Can A Search Engine Make You More Creative? | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

"With Yossarian you can increase the diversity and frequency of your Ah ha! moments." Oh really?


Type "beauty" into Google image search, and you'll see endless photos of white models. Search "beauty" in Yossarian, the metaphorical search engine, and it returns pictures of men shaking hands, a little boy dressed as a super hero, and burning money. Keep scrolling and new understandings of "beauty" pop up.


Compared to Google, the results seem random and confusing, but that's Yossarian's benefit, argues its creator J. Paul Neeley. "Google is an incredibly powerful tool, if you know what you're looking for," he told Fast Company. "But it's really problematic in creative terms, if you're trying to generate new ideas.


" Staring at Google's singular view of a given concept doesn't exactly inspire. All queries go through the filter bubble--the algorithms that guess what we want, like Google autocomplete. Filter bubbles, the theory goes, lead to group-think and hinder creativity. And even on Pinterest, a favorite among creative types, the visual representations of ideas tend to converge on one definition.


A search engine that spits out metaphors, like Yossarian, however, can get people thinking about how to define a topic in new and interesting ways. "With Yossarian you can increase the diversity and frequency of your aha moments," the site promises....

Are You Missing the Heart of Your Marketing Strategy?

Are You Missing the Heart of Your Marketing Strategy? | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

The one critical step you must complete before planning your marketing strategy?


There are 3 phases to the Segmentation step:1 - Market Segmentation

Divide the broad target market into subsets of buyers who have common needs and priorities.


The Problem

Not all markets are created equal... Determining which customers to serve with which marketing channels can be difficult. Multiply your customers’ diverse needs by the many marketing channels available. Pursuing markets that are too wide often means that you’re aiming off-target. Gain a clear understanding of market segments. This will prevent limited sales and marketing resources from misallocation. Broad markets need to be divided into subsets of buyers who have common needs and priorities.


The Solution

To complete the Market Segmentation phase, you need to answer the following questions:

- How big is our market?

- What is its growth rate?

X- What are the needs of the market? How are these changingd?x

- What should be our go to market strategy for each product/service/solution?

- How do my competitors go to market?

- What are the strengths/weaknesses of our marketing team?

- What are our opportunities/threats in the market?

- For our solution set, what is lifecycle stage of adoption are our buyers?...

Jeff Domansky's insight:

Valuable look at market segmentation and how it fits into marketing strategy.

The Effects of Social Media on Our Body and Brain

The Effects of Social Media on Our Body and Brain | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

We always talk about how social media can affect your brand, your reputation your social life. What we don’t discuss is the effect it has on our body and brain. What sorts ofchemical reactions happen each time we check our Twitter? How does our brain work now that internet is everywhere?


We all have seen the symptoms in ourselves. In fact, we can’t spend more than 10 minutes without checking our email or messages. But, apparently, there is a study which confirms that there are huge  psychopathological impacts that social media have brought to our lives. The results are impressive and you can find them below, in the infographic conceived and created by the team at TollFreeForwarding...

This is absolutely terrifying, an attention span of 8 minutes? Goldfish can do better - 9 minutes! It is certainly amzing how social media has begun to affect us mentally as well as physically! Do you get irritated whien your partner  talks to you for a longe period of time? Does it feel as if you are forgetting something? Do you feel breathlesss, restless and somehow rushing things up so that you can check out your FB or Twitter updates? Do you take out your mobile during board meetings to check on updates on social sites? If you are doing all this, then you are certainly addicted to the internet and you need to go for counselling and de-addiction! But then this is not just about how we are affected mentally, it is also about that pain you have in your back, and that occasional stiff neck. What about that nagging ache you have been experiencing lately? Do I need to go on? Haven't we all felt the side effects of excess surfing on the net? Don't we know all this? But then we really like being addicted to something that makes us feel good, so what if we have become somewhat narcicist, so what, don't we deserve to pamper ourselves?

Caitlin Mazurkevich's curator insight, September 22, 2:43 PM

Social Media is more than just a way to stay connected to others or to pass time. These days it is more than anything like a drug to its users. Through constant notifications and updates, these social media sites are conditioning its users to rely on them for pleasure and validation. When people are saying it is harder to quit social media than it is smoking, you know there is a real issue here.

 

We are devoting more and more of our time per day to these sites, which is having a negative effect on our brain. It impairs one's ability to properly read and write, worsens recall memory and even fuels narcissism in its users. Consistent social media users get accustomed to auto-correct that they lose their ability to know how to spell words or use proper grammar. The narcissism comes from its users posting and sharing mostly about themselves and what they are thinking, doing, etc.

 

I believe social media is a great tool, especially for businesses to promote themselves. However, with all the personal noise from its users, it could be a tough road to navigate without having a game plan.

Florence Boy's curator insight, Today, 1:16 AM

Je n'avais encore jamais vu de sujet traitant les medias sociaux sous cet angle quasi médical, c'est impressionnant ! A croiser avec une étude récente qui a démontré qu'en dépit du temps passé et de l'attention perdue à dialoguer sur les medias sociaux, les personnes qui y sont les plus actives sont aussi les plus productives dans leur travail... et vous qu'en pensez-vous ?
