All businesses before they actually become businesses need to ask themselves an important question. That question is who is their main target audience? Once they answer who they are trying to target then they need to know a few things about that specific group of people. That is where this interesting article comes into play.

 

It mentions the different forms of technology each generation uses. That should be looked at by businesses to make sure that they are able to provide information for every device such as apps for the phones and tablets as well as properly functioning websites for the desktops  and laptops. 

 

It also mentions how certain generations are likely to be on the computer at certain times so timing out correctly notifications and emails you want your target audience to see is very important to take into consideration.

Abbey 's curator insight, April 7, 2014 5:10 PM

This is a really good article! Just as Marketing Campaigns via social media can be greatly efficient and go viral with a positive effect, the exact same level of impact can occur but in a negative way. Ensuring a social media campaign is a positive form of marketing communications can actually take a lot more time and thought than firstly anticipated. Although social media is a somewhat casual way to market consumers, it doesn't mean your brand or business doesn't need to be professional. This article definitely highlights the importance of having a defined strategy if you are going to attempt a social media Marketing Campaign, just as you would with any other Marketing Campaign. Being able to attract Facebook users to your brands page is one thing but being able to intrigue and capture their attention is a lot more difficult. Simple things shown in this article such as deleting the URL in the description of a link share is something that not a lot of people would generally think to action, but looking at the shown comparisons really emphasises how much better it looks without it! You have such a small space to capture and hold consumers attention so the smallest slip ups can be the end of your Social Media Marketing Campaign.

10 Stages to a Successful Product Launch

10 Stages to a Successful Product Launch | Social Media | Scoop.it

In 2014, research firm Nielsen conducted a study that found 85% of all consumer packaged goods (CPG) product launches flop. Of course, many see this as a necessary cost of doing business. To effectively test whether or not their ideas will fare well with consumers, big brands develop dozens of products, investing millions in the process, hoping that a handful will become wildly popular. And they do all this knowing a majority of their newest products will fail.

For small businesses though, this statistic is hugely discouraging. Fortunately, there are things brands and store owners can do to ensure the next products they develop, launch and promote are a success.

To help you beat the odds, we have outlined 10 steps every eCommerce store should take to increase their chances of a successful product launch....

janlgordon's curator insight, August 27, 2014 9:03 AM

I selected this article from Curatti written by Jenn Herman because I'm love Instagram and if you know what you're doing it can be very effective if it's appropiate for your particular business needs.


Hashtags here and on Twitter are a must to keep the conversation going, attract potential customers and/or a following, learn what your competitors are saying and doing........but if you don't use them properly it can work against you.


Here are a few things that caught my attention:


Hashtags

Instagram allows you to use up to 30 hashtags per post. But that doesn’t mean you should be using that many! Depending on your brand and your audience, you will likely find a sweet spot between 5 and 10 hashtags per post.


Using less than 5 hashtags limits the number of searches in which your post will appear. But using too many looks spammish and can annoy your followers.


Use Relevant Keyword Hashtags

Your hashtags should include relevant keywords that are associated with your post. If you sell jewelry, including tags like #gold, #jewelry, #fashion, and #gemstones would be considered relevant.

These should relate directly to the item or content in your post.
