Social Media & Search Marketing: An Optimized Content Strategy

Social Media & Search Marketing: An Optimized Content Strategy | Social Media: Engage, Explore, Express, and Eliminate Stress | Scoop.it

An Optimized Content Strategy is the art of deliberately producing content, based on keyword phrases that are driving organic search traffic and conversions, that demonstrates an understanding of your target customer’s knowledge acquisition at various stages in their buying cycle.

 

Then delivering that “optimized” content to them in a relevant and compelling way to grow your business by socializing the content through your organization’s social networks. In this context, content can consist of: website content, blogs, press releases, case studies, white papers, how-to guides, emails, news and events, videos – whatever it is your prospects and customers want to consume, in the format they will best be able to consume it, and on the various platforms on the web they may be receptive to consuming the content.

Strategy and the empowered, social customer | Gerry McGovern


Via Maddie Grant

Maddie Grant's curator insight, June 22, 2013 7:11 PM

"Customers (and employees) are tired of traditional communicators, marketers and advertisers. Customers are increasingly cynical and skeptical. They trust leaders less and their own peers more. They are more educated and do more research. They go online to complete a task.
 
Social media is not some channel in your marketing strategy. Social media is about people talking to people, customers talking to customers. It is the world of the customer, where the organization is a guest. This is a radical change. Organizations are used to telling customers what to do, what to buy. Organizations are used to controlling the message. Traditional organizations are simply not used to customers talking back.
 
Today, organizations must develop much greater empathy for their customers. In many organizations, customer interactions are controlled by a tight group of people (often in sales and support). Large parts of the organization, including product developers, marketers, content publishers and online professionals, have surprisingly little interaction with or knowledge of the customer.
 
Without interaction it is very hard to develop empathy. In an online world where customers are increasingly dominant, more in control, more impatient and less loyal, this is a recipe for increasing dissatisfaction. Developing organization-wide empathy for the customer should be a key consideration for modern management. At the most basic level, that means employees observing customer behavior much more.
 
Strategy must now consider the empowered, social customer and citizen because more than anything else this is how the game and playing field has changed. Strategies that embrace openness and transparency are more likely to succeed today. Strategies that tap into the collective intelligence or wisdom of the crowds are also more likely to be successful."

Daniel Watson's curator insight, May 27, 2013 8:26 PM


Part and parcel of life as a business owner or manager is learning to cope with stress, and those who struggle with this challenge, will find it very difficult to succeed in the business world.


Stress impacts on individuals in many different ways, some business owners seem to thrive on it, whilst others find the toll that stress takes on them to be debilitating to the extent that they become unproductive.


This excellent article, suggests that there is a way to be successful and productive even when under stress, and it discusses how to achieve this state.

Lucas Eaton's curator insight, May 28, 2013 8:56 PM

One thing i found very significant about this article is the portion where they say divide tasks into to different sections the 50% you can control and the 50% you cannot. The 50% that you can control are things like your job performance, how you communicate with others and your productivity. The 50% you cannot control is other peoples reaction to what you say/do and things that are completely out of your control like accidents unexpected problems etc. I find this division of focus very helpful when managing stress. For instance at my work my job is to stock the shelves everytime a new load comes in, if i dont complete the load i get very stressed out, however sometimes it is not my fault and the load is to large. If i divide my focus and act passively to the fact that i will not complete the load and i communicate the problem to my manager i find there is alot less stress than if i were to try my best to finsih the load then not tell my manager and stress when i wait for his reaction.
