Social Media Marketing's Party Has Started!

Social Media Marketing's Party Has Started! | Social Marketing Revolution |

Tackling a social media marketing plan is a bit like eating an elephant - you gotta do it just one bite at a time. 

Marty Note
Great starter advice here such as:

Steer clear of divisive topics. Sharing strong opinions on sensitive topics – from politics to parenting – can alienate potential customers. Especially if they have nothing to do with your business, keep opinions away from your social media.

Share and share alike. If you want to grow your network, take the time to provide feedback to people you network with. Share comments on posts in Google+ circles, “like” things on Facebook, take the time to retweet. Oftentimes people in your community will respond in kind.

Add insight. Providing tips or insight to your network gives your business credibility. Take the time to share information that your customers may value.

Master the #hashtag. 

If you haven't come to the realization social media IS your business never too late to get with the program. Get started with social media.

Death of Social Business Exaggerated Or Right? ScentTrail Marketing

Death of Social Business Exaggerated Or Right? ScentTrail Marketing | Social Marketing Revolution |

Brian Solis is a great writer and even better thinker. In this post he argues C-level executives have all but killed the nascent social media revolution I agree and disagree with Brian and share experience of more than 30 years of working with and selling to the C-Suite almost exclusively (after selling bar soap and candy to Wegman's grocery store managers for a few years).

I changed my career by being intrigued enough by PCs that I purchased one with money I didn't have in 1984. That experience of seeing something so clearly has happened more than once now and the social media revolution Solis describes as hung up on a rock is one of those future visions.

Do I agree with Solis that our social media revolution hasn't met its promise and that many old school ways remain? Yes and no. I note, in the piece a few examples of the digital revolutions wrecking ball Actually the digital revolution turns out to be more water on stone erosion than wrecking ball and SMM looks much the same.

Scooped by Martin (Marty) Smith!'s Creates Best One-Two Punch In Content Curation: Adds Google+ Authorship & Page Posting's Creates Best One-Two Punch In Content Curation: Adds Google+ Authorship & Page Posting | Social Marketing Revolution |

HUGE NEWS adding authorship and the ability to post directly to a GooglePlus brand page is HUGE. I love BOTH tools for different things:

* GooglePlus rocks longform content and conversations.
* helps curate the REACH needed to do effective content marketing in today's Content Shock world.

By adding Google authorship creates benefits for the commons as the rising tide of all those well ranked authors tag up AND they give credit back to individual curators. Brilliant and a BIG vote FOR author rank. I believe is the FIRST major "commons" play to take this significant action.

The action is significant because it shares BACK benefit we, the curators who use, create. There are many "commons" around such as Facebook, Twitter and Kickstarter. Most "commons" feed off the power a user brings and multiplies it by the thousands or even millions using their platform.

This is why the "commons" forms the new math, the new "thank you" economy. Problem is most commons are all TAKE and rarely give back or they don't give back anywhere close to the value they've received. Today said they are willing to collaborate with their curators. BRAVO!

The other new feature, the ability to curate directly into Google brand pages, may make those pages actually work. I find it hard to remember to post beyond my personal page. This new feature will make it easy to curate content to CrowdFunde and Scenttrail.

My friend @Bill Gassettchallenged his GPlus army to use the other day. The reaction wasn't as enthusiastic as he or I would have liked (lol). Now there is NO QUESTION that the combination of G+ and makes a more powerful tool set than either alone. So I would challenge my big time G+ friends to add in since that rising tide will lift OUR BOATS :). M

Pity one has to upgrade their account to access the service though ....

Why, Yes it is huge news. Thanks for letting me know. Authorship all around works@ " adding authorship and the ability to post directly to a GooglePlus brand page is HUGE."
