One of the biggest mistakes I hear about is that people signup to be on a social media site and then they don't complete their profile which reduces their effectiveness. Yes- it's important to fully complete your profile.

I really enjoyed this article due to the simplicity of the inforgraphic showcasing the information in a colourful and engaging way. As there are several types of social media such as facebook, twitter and tumblr (blogs) having media stratergy for each one is important. All of them have different communiction features and different target audiences. Kamal has chosen well and agreeing with emma that this really links well with the week 7 lecture topic.
Christine IMC's curator insight, September 26, 2013 10:15 PM

This is a good article as it uses infographics which makes it easier to understand and take in the idea of developing and implementing a media strategy and in this case for social media. The first 4 steps are the basics to developing a strategy and then it expands on it with not great detail but just the quick basic information one needs to know. Although one thing it doesn't mention though is analyzing a market or finding a target market which I beleive helps within the process of developing a strategy, knowing what potential customers to target or what market or segment.

Selina EverHungry Nihalani's curator insight, October 6, 2013 6:23 PM

In today’s market, social media has become an essential factor of building a business strategy. It is very important that we approach and engage customers through social sites. In the beginning of this article, it shows that a successful social media strategy depends on establishing a sound business goal. Goals must be defined clearly to utilize the appropriate social media in achieving the business goal. After the goals are set, it is also important to define the metrics and tactics. This is because these will measure whether the social media efforts are creating consideration and conversions with the target audience. Through this process, companies can evaluate and measure success and failures, and prepare for a better business strategy to succeed in social media.

How to Create a Jaw Dropping Social Media Strategy in 5 Steps

How to Create a Jaw Dropping Social Media Strategy in 5 Steps | SM | Scoop.it

Social media is not a campaign… it’s a channel. It’s a means to an end, not an end in itself. That means your social media networks should be part of a larger marketing plan.

 

With that being said, you still need a set of goals to guide your individual social media efforts. Like most marketing plans, social media channels need to go through the following five goals in order to produce the kind of results that are truly profitable.

 

Step #1: Identify warm prospects

Step #2: Establish a conversation with your prospect

Step #3: Gain rapport with your prospect

Step #4: Develop a social media relationship

Just because you are talking to people doesn’t mean you have

Step #5: Track the lifetime value of a relationship

6 Social Media Pain Points (and What to Do About Them)

6 Social Media Pain Points (and What to Do About Them) | SM | Scoop.it

Yes, this article goes to the points that can be painful for anyone who is active on social media. I read this post with interest and I could see that the solutions proposed are logical but very useful. [note mg]

 

You may love social media, but even the biggest fans of the social web will find some sources of frustration. What is your social media pain point? I thought I'd explore some of the main ones I've identified and offer up some potential solutions.

 

1. Managing Your Profile and Reputation

So many networks, so many different audiences and connections. Maybe you’re feeling like you have split personalities: being professional on LinkedIn, running at the mouth on Twitter, then letting your hair down on Facebook. But wait! You forgot that you’re connected with your boss or your client on Facebook. Panic ensues. Or what if someone is Googling your name before interviewing you for a job. What will they find? Over the last 10 years, we’ve all learned some tough lessons about what it means to be digital.

5 Ways Writers Can Break Out of the Tired Old Social Media Box | SM | Scoop.it

The social media world is changing daily. In other words, we must be alert and aware of the new tools that could support us in our approach. This interesting article speaks about some "new" tools that can also help us to go towards to success. [note Martin Gysler]

 

It’s time to teach that old dog some new tricks.

 

That old dog I’m referring to is social media.

 

Sure, you’re already blogging, and on Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Facebook, and more. Great.

 

But I’m telling you — there’s more to social media than meets the eye. The final chapter on social media hasn’t been written.

 

When I kicked off my writing business in April, I decided to use social media my way.

 

I approached these overused networks as if I’d never heard of them. I made my own rules. I set different expectations. You could say I wrote my own chapter on social media marketing.

How to turn LinkedIn into a relationship filter

How to turn LinkedIn into a relationship filter | SM | Scoop.it

The following interview is with Dave Gowel, who has been recognized as a “LinkedIn Jedi” by Inc.com and the Boston Globe, is the CEO of RockTech, and author of The Power in a Link: Open Doors, Close Deals and Change the Way you do Business Using LinkedIn (Wiley, December 2011). Gowel co-founded RockTech with Mark Rockefeller to build software tools that help corporations increase productivity through quicker adoption of underutilized technologies. The interview has been edited for clarity.


A lot of people see LinkedIn as a recruiting or job hunting network. What are some of the other ways professionals can put LinkedIn to work, once they’ve landed that dream job?

 

I think one of the key ways to think about it is really a relationship filter, that when you put in all the relationships that you already have, it allows you to see the ones that you could have more easily, or get information about potential ones...
