Rock Social Media Strategy in 30 Minutes a day

Rock Social Media Strategy in 30 Minutes a day | SMS | Scoop.it

Social media strategy is the deployment and development of modern strategic plans for social media. A Social media strategy incorporates these new ways of communication where media is not only broadcast but also shared, commented, opined edited or modified by the public at large.

 

A winning social media strategy is all about working smarter, not harder. Unless you are an enterprise level company, all you need to truly rock your social media is 30 minutes a day. With automation tools like Pardot to take care of many of the time-consuming and repetitive tasks, all that you need is a well defined daily plan and some self discipline....

How Facebook's Instagram integration could rock the industry | Inside Facebook

How Facebook's Instagram integration could rock the industry | Inside Facebook | SMS | Scoop.it

According to John McDermott at Digiday, Instagram is conducting a test (yes, for now it’s just a test) with Mercedes-Benz that allows them to target Facebook users who previously saw one of its Instagram ads. While this development is eye-opening in and of itself, as it gives hints into Facebook plans on returning their $1B investment, it also shows Facebook’s commitment to transforming how advertising not only can coexist with social media, but thrive and break into new levels of adoption.

 

What stands out the most to me is how inherent behavioral characteristics seen on both Facebook and Instagram are being aligned with their natural fit in the conversion funnel. As noted by McDermott, Instagram’s product naturally promotes behavior more conducive to the top of the funnel, where brand awareness comes into play. If Instagram is committed to preserving the user experience that allowed them to break 200 million users, it behooves them to preserve this characteristic of their product and not to “forcefully” incorporate more direct-response elements like call-to-action buttons, etc....

Marketing alert: Digital marketers are used to assimilating platform updates and advancements into their ad campaigns, but there could be a sea change on the horizon.

John H Drew Jr.'s curator insight, August 14, 2014 2:56 PM

Facebook has just finished a deal to acquire mobile photo sharing app Instagram for approximately $1 billion in cash and stock. Instagram will remain an independently branded standalone app that’s separate from Facebook, but the services will increase their ties to each other. The transaction should go through this quarter pending some standard closing procedures.

 

Last year, documents for a standalone Facebook mobile photo sharing app were attained by TechCrunch. Now it seems Facebook would rather buy Instagram which comes with a built-in community of photographers and photo lovers, while simultaneously squashing a threat to its dominance in photo sharing.

 

At 27 million registered users on iOS alone, Instagram was increasingly positioning itself as a social network in its own right — not just a photo-sharing app. And it was clear that some users were doing more of the daily sharing actvities on Instagram rather than Facebook’s all-in-one mobile apps, which had to be cluttered with nearly every feature of the desktop site.

Twitter Facts and Statistics You Need to Know in 2014 | SMS | Scoop.it

What first attracted me to Twitter and social media six years ago was that you could achieve world wide marketing for free. It’s called organic reach. This enabled bloggers to build global brands.

 

That is changing.In 2014 we are seeing the rapid emergence of “pay to play” to reach your followers. So a question needs to be asked.

 

Is the social media “free lunch” over?

 

That also leads to another question. Is social going the way of mass media where the only way to gain attention is to pull out the cheque book?

 

The answer is much more complex than that. It is dependent on many factors including your choice of social networks, tactics and tools....

Pinterest may be one of the most fun social media platforms to use, many small business owners and solo-entrepreneurs are still reluctant to use it. Is it because they don't understand how it works? No. To me, it has a lot more to do with a lack of inspiration. "What should I share there," people often ask me. "I don't have any ideas."

For those of you who have yet to discover Pinterest, it’s a social media site that allows you to create beautiful “boards” by “pinning” images from other people’s boards… adding images from other websites on the Internet… or even uploading them, yourself.

 

It’s bizarrely addicting, and that intense pleasure can be put to good use because…it’s a powerful tool to generate tons of excitement about your business offerings — excitement that can lead to sales.
