5 Ways to Kick Start Your Social Business

5 Ways to Kick Start Your Social Business | SM | Scoop.it

The social business market is changing and evolving continually. Enterprise tools are about integration, fit to purpose and enabling capabilities, much of which will and does depend on current systems.

 

The line between marketing and HR appears to being redefined as we enter the era of the social business. Whilst a CEO will clearly be able to point to a set of strategic responsibilities for HR, the role of HR is evolving as employee engagement, branding and business strategies blend to create a broader social ecosystem.

 

Businesses are becoming more open and transparent as the line between customers and employees becomes blurred, communications open and people can clearly identify the match of an organisational culture to the brand promise. Do people act pro-actively in customer service, are they really focused on employee development, corporate sustainability….does this organizational still make sense?

When ROI Represents the Realization of Influence

When ROI Represents the Realization of Influence | SM | Scoop.it

If you want to know more about what is the ROI in social media, you should read this blog post and perhaps also the related book. [note mg]

 

Vincenzo Cosenza is a new media strategist living in Italy who has over the years, designed some of the industry’s most comprehensive infographics on social media’s global footprint. Recently, he asked if I would write the foreword for his new book, Social Media ROI. And, as I’m a fan of his work, it was an easy decision. As usual however, I asked for permission to share it with you here and his publisher agreed. This is the only place where you can read this in English…

 

For the record, I also wrote the foreword for Olivier Blanchard’s book, Social Media ROI in early 2011. Yes…same name. I’m not a supporter of the fact that the publisher of this latest book did not take Olivier’s title into account.

Study Shows Women Are Smarter Than Men About Social Media | SM | Scoop.it
When it comes to managing their social media profiles, women, on average, behave more like mature, responsible adults while men act like impulsive adolescents.

 

Are we really surprised? Yet, only 10-15% of women are in positions of power and decision making in large social networks. Something wrong with that picture don't you think?

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.

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.
