Google+ offers users a unique and direct route into influencing google search behaviour as posts and +1's to google+ are rated highly in the search engine.

New Broadli App Will Help You Actually Use Your Sprawling LinkedIn Network

New Broadli App Will Help You Actually Use Your Sprawling LinkedIn Network | Social Media | Scoop.it

Unless you enforce a strict selectivity policy, there's a good chance your LinkedIn network has some significant percentage of complete strangers who may never be able to help you professionally--or who may, and you'd never know it.

 

New mobile app Broadli aims to rein in the perpetual disorganization of professional social networks, helping people find those connections, or connections of connections, who can help them most, and vice versa.

 

Created by New Zealand-born entrepreneur Claudia Batten and Alessandra Lariu, cofounder of global women's digital marketing network SheSays and one of Fast Company's Most Creative People 2010, Broadli is an attempt, says Batten, to "digitize serendipity"--that is, use networks better to increase the chances of connecting with the right person at the right time....

Five Questions To Ask About Social Media ROI

Five Questions To Ask About Social Media ROI | Social Media | Scoop.it

A discussion about social media and its use in sales and marketing often leads to a discussion about return on investment—the elusive ROI.

 

The fact that incorporating social media into sales and marketing can generate return on investment has been and continues to be proven. Just search “social media ROI” or “proof that social media marketing works” and you will have plenty of proof. That’s not the problem. The problem is the question about ROI is still being asked, and it’s because many people are still unclear about how to measure ROI and not about whether they can prove it can be measured.

 

That confusion is why the following five questions are so important when it comes to understanding where to start, what to focus on, and what meaningful social media ROI looks like. Many organizations start in the wrong place or focus on the wrong metrics. Hopefully the following will prove helpful....

Pinterest tips and tricks for business

Pinterest tips and tricks for business | Social Media | Scoop.it

Pinterest just keeps on growing and has attained strength of 70 million users. Once you have got the hang on pins and boards and repinning, you might wonder what else there is to Pinterest. Pinterest can help your business grow if only you know and use some of the less known tricks.

 

The strategy – of simply pinning your own images and expecting others to repin – will not carry you far. You must seriously engage with others by repinning content. One assured way to develop new followers is to tag the original pinner in the description section.

 

There is a misconception that Pinterest users are on the site only for merrymaking. This is untrue as many Pinterest users are there to shop. When you are selling your products on Pinterest, make sure to include a price tag on the image. It is reported that pins with price tags attract 35 % more likes than those without price tags....

I must admit that I'm one of those people who was kind of irritated when I started to hear that Google+ was ANOTHER social network I had to worry about.  As if Facebook wasn't enough pain-in-the-ass.  However, I will admit also that any property that Google has is probably going to be impossible to ignore simply because they clearly are going to give it preferential treatment (just like Blogger).
