Delightful Content Marketing: Not Just for B2Cs - Business 2 Community

Delightful Content Marketing: Not Just for B2Cs - Business 2 Community | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

...The key for B2Bs, especially SMBs, to delight their consumer is by producing, say it with me: content. But, you can’t just throw out content that only serves to clutter an already polluted digital space. It must be delightful. It must give your consumer information and education that they actually want and need.

 

Abigail Posner, Head of Strategic Planning And Agency Development at Google, has some great advice when it comes to delighting the consumer: “Create content that reminds us of our own capacity for excitement, happiness, and vivacity so we want to share in it with others.” That’s delight, folks. How might a B2B do that? Just like a B2C would. Let’s talk about it:

Jeff Domansky's insight:

I liked this perspective on how to do content marketing better. The comparison of B2B and B2C is interesting.

Why Gary Vaynerchuk's New Social Media Strategy Should Change The Way You Do Business

Why Gary Vaynerchuk's New Social Media Strategy Should Change The Way You Do Business | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Today, Gary Vaynerchuk starts “tripling down” on content – because “doubling down” doesn’t begin to describe how important he thinks it is. The social media expert is relaunching his blog today. Why? “The more content I can put out, the more luck I have,” he says.

 

He’s redeployed an employee at VaynerMedia, his social media consultancy, to “shadow my life,” follow him around, record his conversations and remarks, and turn them into social media content. “I’ve built the infrastructure around me to become a greater content provider,” he says. “I have someone calling me at the end of the day – there’s now someone in my life pestering me for content.” W

 

hat’s more, Vaynerchuk believes it’s only a matter of time before this “tracker” arrangement becomes common. “Content is the cost of entry to relevance in today’s society,” he says. “The top 1-5% [of executives and social media personalities] in the next few years will have full-time content people around them. There are going to be 500 to 5000 people at this time next year who employ a full-time content person.”...

Jeff Domansky's insight:

A marketing game changer? Hard to say. My good friend Rich Becker had a great comment: "Quantity of content doesn't always equal quality of content." Lots of people follow everything Vaynerchuk says because he's bigger than life. Time will tell whether others jump on board this approach.

5 Simple Tips To Improve Your Social Media Marketing - Business 2 Community | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Social Media plays an increasingly important role in many business marketing efforts. It’s one of the pillars of a successful Inbound Marketing strategy, and with as little as 6 hours of dedicated effort a week, a small business can see improved sales results.

 

While increased usage is great sign that business is adapting, there are some all-to-common errors that prevent business owners from taking full advantage of everything social media offers. It’s particularly important since recent research has shown the average time spent using social media is increasing.

 

According to research from HubSpot, more than 85% of Internet users have Facebook accounts and 49% are on Twitter. In other words, your prospects are using social media. Since social media has a 100% higher lead-to-close rate than outbound marketing, it’s important to eliminate the stumbles. Here are 5 simple tips that will help you reach your prospects more effectively using social media:...

37 Fantastic SEO Guides, Tips and Tactics | B2B Marketing Blog | Webbiquity | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Considering that the average b2b website gets about 40% of traffic from organic search, with some sites getting as much as two-thirds of all visits via search engines, effective search engine optimization (SEO) remains a vital strategy.

 

But precisely what constitutes “best practices” in SEO is a continually (and lately, rapidly) moving target. Yesterday’s on-page optimization and link building tactics—even those used with the best, non-manipulative intentions—may get a site penalized in search rankings today for being “over-optimized.” (You can’t be too rich or too thin, but apparently you can be too optimized.)

 

So what’s a marketing manager, PR professional or SEO specialist to do? Keep up with SEO trends and changes. Optimize off-site content (for example, on YouTube and other social platforms). Use effective SEO tools and marketing metrics. Create link-worthy content. Use social signals to boost rankings. Learn how to do all of that and then some here in more than three dozen of the best SEO guides and tips from the past year....

When Social Media Is Not Your Best Marketing Strategy

When Social Media Is Not Your Best Marketing Strategy | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Despite the hype, social media may not be your best approach when it comes to reaching your customers. Here are some questions to help determine whether to...

 

Many small businesses think they have to be active in social media just because it's become such a central part of big brand marketing and pop culture. I get it. It's starting to feel like if you're not in social media, you're not doing real marketing anymore. And in many categories, that may be true. Social media has become the great connector, aligning brands and customers in real time in ways never seen in marketing.

 

But you can't just jump into social media because you feel obligated. You need a plan of attack that makes sense for your brand and your customer. It may not make sense for your customer to engage. The key is to know when using social media fits strategically with what you are trying to accomplish. It starts with knowing what your brand is about and how your customers live their lives -- a marketing fundamental no matter the medium.

 

If you have a more private brand with customers who don't want to share their stories, you probably have no business using social media channels to connect with them. Here are some key factors to consider when determining what role social media plays in your marketing strategy...

Twitter and Traditional Media: Rivals or Lovers?

Twitter and Traditional Media: Rivals or Lovers? | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Not long ago, the media looked at the web as if it was an awkward, unwanted stepchild. Today, the reverse is arguably true, with debate growing over whether social networks such as Twitter will overtake beacons of journalism like The New York Times.

 

At last month's Milken Institute Global Conference, PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel said he thinks Twitter will outlast The Times. His reasoning: Its business strategy is more solid than that of the storied newspaper. The debate got journalists talking on forums such as Muck Rack, with many people disagreeing. Some said it isn't a mutually exclusive relationship, or that one's success is predicated on the other's failure....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

I don't agree with PayPal founder Peter Thiel that Twitter will outlast the New York Times. But, the NYT no longer resembles itself from just five years ago and in another five years may look a lot more like it's digital siblings. The forests will be thankful.

Jeff Fromm: Why The Old Definition of Brand Value Has Died - PSFK

Jeff Fromm: Why The Old Definition of Brand Value Has Died - PSFK | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

To win over millennials, brands must incorporate participative benefits into their models....

 

In the new Millennial-inspired Participation Economy, the old definition of brand value — the one that worked for decades — is dead. As marketers, we knew that the sum of our core functional and emotional benefits divided by price would give us a proxy for brand value. Stronger brands had more price elasticity. However, the old definition no longer holds if you want to engage Millennials or older generations that are adopting a “Millennial Mindset.”

 

THE NEW DEFINITION OF BRAND VALUE

Millennials don’t just want to buy your brand, they want to be a part of it. They’re looking for ways to participate. And they want to understand why you do what you do not just what you want to sell. As a result, the brand value equation has morphed to include participative benefits. This is key for tapping into Millennial passion — and therefore, Millennials’ dollars. In The Participation Economy, (emotional benefits + function benefits + participative benefits)/price = brand value. We’ll explore this more in a bit. First, let’s review who makes up this generation — and how they influence your other consumers, too....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

This is a very thoughtful post on shifting brand values, selling to millennials and the "participation economy."

In the Aftermath of Penguin 2.0, Branding Is Now a Major Ranking Factor

In the Aftermath of Penguin 2.0, Branding Is Now a Major Ranking Factor | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Just when you got your SEO mojo, out comes Penguin 2.0, trippin' up your flow. Here's what to do about it!

 

... Post-Penguin 2.0, the message is clear: if you want to rank and drive real traffic, you need to build your online brand. By strong branding, I’m not talking exclusively about giants like CNN and Zappos et al. I mean a strong brand in relation to the other sites in your industry fighting over specific SERP territory. Say you're a local dentist trying to rank for your best keywords. You won’t ever have brand recognition equal to that of Apple. But you can have an amazingly strong web brand for your local market. And if you do, you’re much more likely to rank.

 

When you think about branding as a ranking factor, it makes a lot more sense. Google is trying to replicate the logic of the “real world” and apply it to the online world, after all. For instance, if you have a business and you’re trying to build your brand as part of a local marketing blitz, how would you do it? What constitutes a strong brand offline? Well, you might have printed ads in the local magazines and newspapers, or maybe radio and television ads -- you know, the kinds of things that might help create some brand recognition for your target market when they're not at a computer or mobile device....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

Google's new search algorithm changes keep impacting marketing and SEO. That's not a bad thing. In my view, branding has always been about building trust with customers whether it's online or off-line. What's most significant is the need for a higher level of engagement by brands with consumers who have more power and, it seems, more interested in engaging especially in social media.

more...
Stephanie Katcher's curator insight, June 6, 2013 9:32 AM

While the changes may disrupt marketer's formula's for success, as consumers we have to appreciate the Google's continued attempt to improve their algorithm with Penguin 2.0.  The digital world is simply an extension of our reality, meaning it's ecosystem is as vital as any other. Business owners and marketers should be proud and embrace the importance of branding as it is as fundamental as understanding P&L.

Old vs. New PR, and What Offers Better ROI

Old vs. New PR, and What Offers Better ROI | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

...Traditionally, the ROI of PR that focused on Old Media was measured by a simple comparison of the size and number of mentions in a publication to the cost of advertising for that placement. What’s more, retaining an Old Media PR firm tended to cost upwards of $5,000 per month on a 6-month agreement with no guarantees. In short, calculating ROI for Old Media PR was crude and relied on a lot of ifs.

 

Enter New Media PR. With the ever-growing fragmentation in how we consume media, it only makes since for PR firms to focus on serving content in real-time via the litany of technologies that allow for media consumption. What’s more, ROI is much more easily calculable. Where Old Media PR left a lot of ifs, New Media PR offers more substance. Need to know how many people read your press release online? Wondering how many Twitter followers you gained after an Internet-based publicity stunt? Done and done, all at the drop of a hat.

 

Old Media PR isn’t dead, but it’s on the way out. New Media PR is the future. Adapt or die....

Google Is Learning How Smartphones Impact In-Store Shopping | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

...Smartphones allow us to answer our own product questions about options, specs and, of course, price while we’re out shopping. And Google is trying to figure out what that means for marketing and purchase decisions. Seventy-nine percent of smartphone owners are what Google calls “smartphone shoppers,” meaning that they use their smartphones at least once a month in stores. That’s a lot of people.

 

If there are 130 million smartphone users in the U.S., then about 111 million Americans use their smartphones to prepare for shopping or to look things up while there. It’s not surprising that Google wants to get in all those heads and see what’s going on. There’s money there!... The most surprising finding was probably that people who consistently use their smartphones as part of their shopping spend 25% more than people who only use their smartphones for shopping occasionally....

This Chart Will Keep Cable Execs Up All Night

This Chart Will Keep Cable Execs Up All Night | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Americans are increasingly abandoning traditional television. In 2007, the number of "Zero-TV" households was around 2 million. It has since grown to more than 5 million, according to a recent Nielsen report. We first saw the news on Google Ventures Partner MG Siegler's personal blog.

 

Nielsen defines "Zero-TV" households as those that don't fit into its definition of a TV household. It doesn't mean that those households don't have traditional TV sets, but it's just that the majority of them get their content from computers, tablets, and smartphones. In short, it means they're not paying for cable.

 

But here's the real kicker: nearly half of these "Zero-TV" households are under the age of 35, marking a clear trend in our viewing habits. Anyway, look at this chart. It shows traditional TV households versus "Zero-TV" households broken down by age...
