5 Ways To Promote Pinterest On Facebook Fan Page

5 Ways To Promote Pinterest On Facebook Fan Page | Social Media Collaboration | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article by Social Media Examiner:

"Establishing a large audience of followers on Pinterest is one of the most important aspects of a successful Pinterest marketing campaign.

Here’s the skinny: Although during the setup process you can choose to link your Pinterest account to your Facebook personal page, there is currently no way to automatically hook up to your Facebook fan page.

 

There’s a way to get Facebook fans to create exposure for you on Pinterest. Here are five ways to use:

 

#1: Get a Pinterest Tab for Your Facebook Fan Page:

The easiest thing to do is just go to Woobox and create a Pinterest tab for your Facebook fan page.

The Pinterest tab allows fans to view all of your boards and even your pins while staying on the Facebook platform.

 

#2: Post Pinterest Links as Updates on Your Facebook Page:

One way to build your follower base is to share the direct link to your Pinterest page as a status update and tell your fans WHY they should follow you on Pinterest.

 

#3: Promote Specific Boards on Your Facebook Page:

I recommend you promote a few different boards throughout the week.

That way, you have the opportunity to showcase your Pinterest account to a wider audience on Facebook, and you can introduce them to the diverse areas of value shared on your Pinterest page.

 

There are two ways you can promote a specific Pinterest board on Facebook.

- Update your status by uploading an image of a pin to Facebook. Add a description and include a link to the board on which that pin is featured.

- Post the link to your Pinterest board as part of a status update. An image of one of your pins on that board will be automatically generated.

 

#4: How to Promote a Particular Pin:

Sometimes the best way to really serve your Facebook community is to highlight the value that you are providing in one particular pin.

This is a great way to get maximum exposure when pinning your own original content. Remember these posts can and will be shared across Facebook by your fans.

The same two strategies apply here, as they do to promote a specific board above. You can either upload the image of the pin as a status update (or include a link in the image description), or you can just include the direct link to the pin in your status area.

 

#5: Promote Your Pinterest Contests on Facebook:

Contests and promotions are becoming all the rage on Pinterest. They are a very effective way to quickly add a lot of new followers and drive a ton of traffic to your site.

A great way to leverage both platforms is to promote your Pinterest contest on your Facebook fan page.

10 Secrets to Producing a Video that Drives Results

10 Secrets to Producing a Video that Drives Results | Social Media Collaboration | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article:

"Anyone can create a video and post it online, but creating an effective video that drives action is more science than art.

 

Here are 10 secrets to producing a video that sells.

 

1. Start with your potential customer’s pain point:

Think about what your product or service can do to help your customers solve their problems, no matter how small or large they may be.

 

2. Present your solution:

After you have engaged viewers with your story, present the solution to them in a simple way that helps them fully understand the results your product or service has to offer.

 

3. Demonstrate your solution:

Give your customers a visual tour of how your product or service will solve their problems using screenshots and product photos.

 

4. Present a call to action:

If you want them to sign up for your mailing list, register for a customized online demo, call your sales line, or go to your product’s purchase page, incorporate that message into your video.

 

5. Keep it short and sweet.

 

6. Introduce your company in the first 30-seconds.

 

7. Use clear, crisp visuals:

Try incorporating stock images and/or video from websites like istockphoto.com or stock animation sequences from sites like videohive.net when needed.

Also, don’t forget about your video’s setting.

 

8. Add a professional voiceover:

There is nothing worse than bad audio – it can make even the best video seem amateur and unprofessional. If your voice doesn’t make the cut, try voices.com where you can find professional voiceover talent for your video content.

 

9. Create a soundtrack:

Find plenty of royalty-free options online using sources like audiojungle.net, premiumbeat.com, and ibaudio.com.

 

10. Don’t be afraid to be funny:

Adding humor to your video will help them see the human side of your business..."

4 Steps to Making Your Search Listings Stand Out on Google

4 Steps to Making Your Search Listings Stand Out on Google | Social Media Collaboration | Scoop.it

Do you want more click throughs on your search listings?

 

"Competition in search engine results pages (SERPs) is stiff, especially since Google has rolled out so many changes to its algorithms. These changes push down organic results in favor of images, videos, local search and ads, so a standard listing like the one above won’t do anymore".

 

You need to supersize that listing.

 

Here are the 4 steps that will help you do that:

 

Step #1: Write a full and seductive meta description

 

Step #2: Create dual rankings

 

Step #3: Leverage rich snippets

 

Step #4: Get sitelinks

3 Facebook Timeline Marketing Tips for Success | Social Media Examiner

3 Facebook Timeline Marketing Tips for Success | Social Media Examiner | Social Media Collaboration | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article:

"Are you wondering how to best use the Facebook Timeline features?

The right steps can capture the attention of your fans and potential customers.

What I am referring to is pinning, highlighting and milestones—three Timeline features that can dramatically change the number of people who interact with your content.

 

To supercharge your content on Facebook, consider implementing these three new Facebook Timeline features for your page.

 

#1: Pin a Post

A pinned post is a status update that you manually select to stay at the top of your Timeline, meaning it will not slip down the Timeline as you continue to add other posts to your page.

 

Here are a few simple ideas to help you decide on the best pinning strategies for your business.

You can use a pinned post to build your fan base and/or your email list. Offer something of value in exchange for the Like or a fan’s name and email.

 

Consider creating a welcome video and then posting it on your page as a status update, with a message such as, “Welcome!

 

The next time you are promoting a webinar, teleclass or any online or offline event, use an image as your promotional banner and pin it to your page.

 

#2: Highlight a Post

A highlighted post is a status update that you have selected to expand across your Timeline, taking up the space of both columns. Highlighting a post will help you draw more attention to the most important content on your page.


Here are a few smart strategies to help you make the most of your highlighted posts.

Highlight your customer testimonials...

Use highlighted posts to explain a new service or program to your fans and create multiple images to roll out over a designated period of time to grab your fans’ attention.

 

#3: Create Milestones

Milestones are a great way to tell the story of your business through words and images. They can appear anywhere on your Timeline, depending on the date you designate.


Always include an engaging image in your milestone. This will ensure your milestone will stand out and capture attention.

Also make sure to include a call to action with a link to more information in your milestone...."

How Long Before You Will Scoop.it Instead of Google It? | Social Media Collaboration | Scoop.it

"Services like Scoop.it depend on a community of millions of hardworking experts who wonder what to do with the wealth of knowledge and wisdom they have accumulated in life and are happy to share it."

 

Written by blogger Shred Pillai on the Huffington Post, this vibrant praise of Social Curation in general and Scoop.it in particular, points out the changes we're seeing in the way we look for information. From basic search, we now look more and more for meaning and context from human experts.

 

Beyond information, we want knowledge.

 

And this is what Curation is all about.

 

As he concludes: "At the end of the day, Scoop.it, which is free, is the right answer for information seekers and providers as well as the experts who like to show off their expertise."

Curate Learning Playlists with MentorMob

Robin Good: MentorMob is a content curation platform which makes it easy to create "learning paths" by assembling sequences of web content pages on a specific topic.

 

From PandoDaily: "MentorMob is one company looking to turn content experts into teachers.

 

The Web app created by college friends Kris Chinosorn and Vince Leung lets you curate collections of information within a playlist that conveys a lesson plan around a single topic.

...

 

MentorMob divides its playlists into 12 subject categories including technology, health, and art. 

 

They provide playlists for teachers, as well as standard school subjects such as math, science, and social studies.

 

More specific topics, called “mobs,” covered within the subjects, range from learning Photoshop to home brewing beer, to entrepreneurship.

 

Content is contributed by volunteer editors, who tend to be hobbyists and enthusiasts."

Aligning SEO Strategy With Your Social Media Strategy

Aligning SEO Strategy With Your Social Media Strategy | Social Media Collaboration | Scoop.it

"The line between Social Media and SEO has been rapidly blurring for some time and today a SEO strategy without a social media plan is incomplete, while the social media user who neglects SEO is unlikely to have rapid success; or even success at all.

 

This is because successive Google algorithm updates have given more and more weight to “social” indicators of popularity for websites, and where Google leads other search engines are sure to follow in a bid to catch up.

 

Regardless of whether you’re looking at the problem from an SEO perspective or a social media perspective it is important that you have both social media activity and SEO working hand in hand if you want to maximise your effectiveness and reach.

 

Here are three ways you need to make sure your social media and SEO efforts work together to increase effectiveness:

 

1) Use SEO Best Practice in Your Social Media

2) Getting Started With SEO and Social Media

3) The First Step to Keywords"

5 Ways to Improve Your Facebook News Feed Exposure

5 Ways to Improve Your Facebook News Feed Exposure | Social Media Collaboration | Scoop.it

Facebook Edgerank: What you need to know to improve your Facebook marketing. Discover how to calculate your reach and grow your audience.

 

Excerpted from article:

"If you already have a decent fan base, it makes more sense to first focus on reaching your fans before you shift your focus to growing your audience.

 

Here are some tips:

#1: Calculate Your Reach:

You need to know how well you’re doing at reaching your fan base.

How do you find out what percentage of your Facebook page’s fans you’re reaching? Go to your Facebook Insights and average your reach for the last 30 days, then divide that number by your fan count.

Facebook has claimed that Facebook pages reach 16-17% of their fans on average. And typically, the more fans you have, the lower the percentage you’ll reach.

 

#2: Always Post Photos:

Choose the right type of content to share on Facebook.

Of all the types of content you can share, photos give the best results. Photos are most engaged with and reach the most people.

 

#3: Stimulate Engagement:

Try one of these four kinds of posts to generate engagement:

- Caption contest;
- Multiple choice;
Fill in the blank;
Inspirational quotes;

 

#4: Create Viral Exposure:

Ask users to upload their photos in a specific category. They are consciously (or subconsciously) participating in an ego contest. Often on Facebook it seems like we succeed most when we take advantage of the momentum of our fans’ self-interest.

 

#5: Build Fans Virally and Drive Revenue With Sweepstakes and Coupons:

Sweepstakes can build fans more affordably than ads, they’re engaging and they’re fun. Lots of pages do them.

Here are five tips for successful fan-building sweepstakes.

1) Be creative, but keep it simple.
2) Make sure the prize is related to the brand.
3) Give folks an incentive to share.
4) Look for strategic partners to co-brand with.
5) Keep the entry form short. Less is more..."

Should I Invest In SEO Or Social Media?

Should I Invest In SEO Or Social Media? | Social Media Collaboration | Scoop.it

Prospective clients often ask me if they should invest in SEO (search engine optimization) or social media. Their company only has so many marketing dollars to spend, and they want to spend them as wisely as possible. They have heard a lot about both SEO and social media marketing, and know they should probably be doing at least one of them, but they do not understand either one enough to make the decision on their own.

 

 

 

SEO and social are more interdependent than ever. Search engines are using social “signals”, such as “likes”, retweets, and “plus ones” as votes of confidence, similar to the way they look at relevant inbound links.

 


On the flip side, it is extremely beneficial to have carefully-selected key phrases in your social content, since more and more social media posts are being indexed by search engines. It also helps to have those phrases prevalent in your social posts when users run searches within a social network.

New Free Tool That Shows Fans Reached On Facebook Page Posts: Minilytics By PageLever

New Free Tool That Shows Fans Reached On Facebook Page Posts: Minilytics By PageLever | Social Media Collaboration | Scoop.it

Excerpted from review article on TechCrunch:

 

"Pagelever, a popular Facebook analytics company, released a new, free tool called Minilytics today. The company claims it is the first tool that lets users measure how many fans see their posts on Facebook pages.

 

Two weeks ago Facebook released a new metric in the API that counts fan’s post-views.

Once the new metric was released, Pagelever co-founder Jeff Widman and his team built the free tool measuring how many fans see a Facebook post, as well as answering other questions for users, like when are the best times to post, best types of posts and “who are my fans.”

 

Widman says the tool lets users see which page views are from fans who have already “liked” the page, rather than combining fan views with those that come from viewers who land on the page but aren’t fans.

 

He notes that this data is particularly important for pages that are growing quickly or that have large numbers of targeted ads..."

"Hashcaster is presently beta testing the Hashcaster platform with a select group of premiere events throughout the U.S. If you would like your event to be considered for our beta program please contact Geoff Clendenning at..."

Then, maybe, the service is still in beta after these nine months.

Good morning Giuseppe! Evidently you have done a much better job than mine in research and verifying this info as I was not aware of the original launch. Re your point about their Beta program, it may very well be. You only need to write to them to find out.
