How to Craft a Killer Twitter Advertising Campaign via @simonowens | Social Marketing Revolution | Scoop.it

In terms of granular targeting of your messaging, few platforms are more effective than Twitter. Using its various advertising tools, you can boost your posts to place them in front of your targeted demographics, create a trending hashtag, or even target users who are watching a particular piece of live television programming.

Social Media Marketing's Party Has Started!

Social Media Marketing's Party Has Started! | Social Marketing Revolution | Scoop.it

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.

We are ALL Visual Marketers Now: 8 Visual Marketing Lessons from Vogue - Curatti | Social Marketing Revolution | Scoop.it

You may catch Marty combing through Vogue, Elle and Vanity Fair at B&N. Why? Fashion mags are great visual marketers - 8 Visual Marketing Tips From Vogue:

  • Be specific & BIG NUMBERS are great ways to be specific.
  • Be branded – take advantage of existing brands such as Shades of Grey.
  • Be topical – March is “fashion week” in NYC and both magazines have extensive features.
  • Be welcoming – note how both models look directly out at the viewers (my favorite online engagement pose).
  • Use SOUND – “Sexy, Shiny, Bouncy Hair sounds fun. “Full on Fashion Force” sounds forceful. Words create rhythm and sounds that adds to or detracts from compelling images.
  • Juxtapose – “street chic” and “fashion force” are examples of creative juxtapositions.
  • Use Action Verbs – which of these action verbs AREN’T on either cover? grab, be bold, upgrade, must have, takes on, and rock? Yep, all of those “action verbs” are in sub-headlines.
  • Simple Colors – ONLY colors used for headlines and sub-heads are black, white and red.

Why I Don't Like Scoopit Links on Twitter II [Robin Good & Scenttrail Conversaton]

Why I Don't Like Scoopit Links on Twitter II [Robin Good & Scenttrail Conversaton] | Social Marketing Revolution | Scoop.it

I’m seeing more Scoopit links in my Twitter stream and I’m not crazy about it.  Sure it’s quick and easy to share with Scoopit.  But it not quick and easy to consume. For me it's all about the econ...

Marty Note
If you missed I don't Like Scoop.it Links I, here's a link:
http://sco.lt/5ZrOcb

First post prompted a great note from my curator mentor coach Robin Good:

« Marty, I can't agree more. I hate it myself when I see Scoop.it links in my Twitter stream because I know that most of the time it's a lame post with next to no content leading me somewhere else.

I think this is part of the culture of Scoop.it, and the only ones that can change it significantly are those who direct and promote its editorial and marketing policy.

Until you promote a tool like Scoop.it as a tool to save time and produce more content, target it to novice content marketers, and don't moderate actively what you showcase (like Flipboard or Medium do), you can't expect a different kind of outcome. I may be wrong but this is the impression I get. What's your take Marty? »

Yes, but
I agree with Robin much more than I disagree. Points of agreement include:

Agree 80%

* Difficulty of Creating Branded Curators on Scoop.it due to little or no "SHOWCASE".
* Spam control on backs of curators.
* Difficulty of building community on Scoop.it due to the first bullet.

Disagree 20%

* Adding Google authorship signals a desire by Scoop.it to share back value of the commons making Scoop.it UNIQUE in social nets / tools.
* No commons is constructed as much as guided, influenced and moved like weather or a wave at a football game.

The disagreement 20% speaks to the highly distributed nature of any commons. When content is coming in from pirates and the navy then content cherished, featured and held up as examples creates powerful social signals.

This very TINY balancing beam is where cutators and editors of any commons must excel. Too heavy a hand and free discourse is squashed. Too light a hand and the commons (substitute community if it makes it easier to understand lol) can't find or share its spirit.

Robin is successful because he is creative, intelligent and generous. Robin's skills mean he can be successful anywhere, so finding ways to partner with Robin, giving Robin (and Michele, Jan, Karen and Brian) "jobs" or defined roles would help shore up the GOOD and so decrease chances for the BAD to run amok.

This "Showcasing" is a fine art since it too walks a fine and tiny beam between elitist and populist. When Robin hit 1M views on Scoop.it I would have been tempted to have a much bigger party (lol). The key push and pull between curators and any commons is how much value will be shared with the sharecropping contributors.

When Robin and then Ana-Christina right behind him passed a million views I would have stopped time a little to interview them, qualify their tactics and strategies and in so doing call attention to a tool capable of helping a sharecropper reach a lot of people.

For me, the third act of any commons is always "Review the Reviewer" or Brand the Curator (in Scoop.it's case). Who gets that? Red Bull gets it. I think FlipBoard does too though Robin has more experience there than me (recent innovations make me want to go back and check it out).

Tools, like life itself, aren't permanent fixtures. As Scoop.it crosses this next chasm it walks a tight rope across the Grand Canyon and competitors such as FlipBoard are generating lots of wind. The Scoopit team is smart and they must sense a pivot is upon them. Personally I want to help. In for a penny...:). Marty

Right on Marty! I'm re-scooping this as a way to help that learning along about how to really use Scoop.it well and leverage it.
Karen Dietz's curator insight, August 22, 2014 2:25 PM

FYI Folks -- I trust that the reviews I write about the articles I curate help people along in their business storytelling journey. I know that there are many curators out there who do not add reviews/comments to the articles they highlight. 


As a result, Scoop.it and other curation sites are getting a backlash because audience members are tired of getting a link to an article that brings them to Scoop.it, and then requires another click to get to the article. Now I know that is annoying. And there is nothing of value offered between clicks.


Marty's response to the original blog post is right on. Read it along with all the other comments. Truly illuminating.


Other than a rant for me, what's the value of this post to you and business storytelling?


Namely this -- no matter what medium you use -- blogging, curating, digital storytelling -- make sure you are actually adding value for your audience. Expand their knowledge, give them tools, show them how, and offer your excellent insights. The stories you share have to connect to your audience in these ways. Anything else is a waste.


All of these posts and reviews add up to telling your story in a big picture way. So thanks Marty for addressing this issue, and reminding us about principles for quality curation. I've learned a lot from both you and Robin!

Is Crowdfunding A New Marketing Channel? A: Yes

Is Crowdfunding A New Marketing Channel? A: Yes | Social Marketing Revolution | Scoop.it

Crowdfunding As New Channel
If a "channel" is a set of tactics who’s ROI exceeds its costs then YES crowdfunding can become a new channel. Current Internet marketing channels include:

* Social Media Marketing.

* Email Marketing.

* Websites and other digital publishing platforms.

* Pay Per Click Ads (PPC).
* Content Marketing.

* Content Curation.
* Video Marketing.
* Cause Marketing.
* Event Marketing.
* Mobile Marketing.

* Traditional advertising.

* Crowdfunding.


You may notice SEO is not on the list. Search Engine Optimization used to be a distinct channel. One could argue technical SEO should remain a channel, but I think technical SEO belongs as a tactic in each of those channels.

You might think of crowdfunding as a subset of social or content marketing. We don't. We think crowdfunding ideas; content, promotions and product development will become an ecommerce channel in the next two years.

Imagine you have a crowdfunding board showing the latest coolest gizmos or thinking in whatever business you are. What will happen with that content? Content that viral will be shared, LIKED and blogged about.

User Generated Content, (UGC) the one content all ecommerce merchants need and can't buy, flows into crowdfunding like streams into a river. The coolest part of all of this CHEAP UGC is not only is it VIRAL and SOCIAL but it is addictive and fun.

In this game you are the BANK and make money either way. If your ideas get funded you make money. If THEIR ideas get funded YOU make money. If your ideas don't get funded you SAVE MONEY.

Yes, the team at CrowdFunde believes crowdfunding is a new channel.

How Do You Create 'Heroic Content'?…

How Do You Create 'Heroic Content'?… | Social Marketing Revolution | Scoop.it

How Do You Create 'Heroic Content'?
You create heroic content by knowing that is what you are trying to do. You create heroic content by RISKING things (reputation, your brand, your ideas). You create heroic content by rejecting the lemmings rush toward the next Internet marketing tactic and embracing them all IN SERVICE to some greater idea.

What's your company, brand or website's movement, manifesto and who is in your tribe? Immediately after you create heroic content that gets you in the game (your About page for example), then begin asking for help. Don't wait or hesitate.

It will be slow going at first, but hang in there and keep asking. One thing we've learned the hard way is people want to help especially those willing to risk all, to share the "inside baseball" content only they know and people who want to help first and are worried about returns a distant third.

One way you create heroic content is to be a hero and beginning is easier than you think AND much easier than mastering one more soon to be diminishing return tactic. Helping create Heroic Content is our Startup Factory funded startup's mission (http://www.curagami.com). Hope you will join us, help us, criticize us and care.

We are all in. The boats have been burned and we want to make Curagami HELPFUL and WISE beyond its years. Hope you will help.

Social Media GOLD Lessons via The Pit & The Bank (via @ThePitBBQ & @FoodBankCENC )

Social Media GOLD Lessons via The Pit & The Bank (via @ThePitBBQ & @FoodBankCENC ) | Social Marketing Revolution | Scoop.it

SMM Lessons From The Pit & The Food Bank
Poking fun at my @CrowdFunde cofounder Phil Buckley today I wrote a new caption for The Pit's Cuegrass photo. I noted that either Phil was holding court or Cuegrass was coming soon.

My "inside" joke with my partner Phil, former "Mayor" of The Pit BBQ in Raleigh, NC, IS THE MOST DISCUSSED CONTENT on my social nets today. Let that statement sink in for a minute.


What do you call it when someone blows up your Tweet? Answer: Social Media GOLD.

My "inner circle" social nets have about 12,000 followers. I share content from Scoop.it (daily shares with 2,300 followers @Martin (Marty) Smith ), G+ (2,896 followers share daily https://plus.google.com/u/0/+MartinWSmith/posts ),Twitter (@Scenttrail 4,200 followers share daily http://www.twitter.com/scenttrail ) and  Pinterest (4,929 followers post daily http://www.pinterest.com/scenttrail/ ) and the most shared post today is an "inside" joke with a handful of friends.

A handful of friends and some SMART social media marketers shared some great social media marketing lessons today!

The Pit, our favorite BBQ joint in downtown Raleigh immediately RTed my new caption of their photo with a supportive tag ("now that's a caption"). The Pit's RT prompted several Cuegrass, the event I wrote the new caption for, vendors to RT too.

This is the POWER of the recognized conversation.

The Pit could have been MAD I wrote a new caption for their Cuegrass event pic. Nope, too smart for that they provided encouragement and RTed demonstrating what Phil and I are working so hard to create at CrowdFunde - conversations RULE.

AND the more responsive, lean, funny and fun your social content is the more shares you achieve. The more shares you achieve the more awareness you gain. When I opened a new chapter on Cuegrass the Pit jumped on it. Now I see Phil got home and joined the conversation. Phil's nets are the size of mine so the Pit just picked up 20,000 potential followers or attendees at this year's Cuegrass (I still don't even know what it is lol). 

So, not only is the Pit the home of our favorite BBQ and Cuegrass, but today they've put their secret rub down long enough to share two important social marketing lessons:

* When someone is talking about YOU ENCOURAGE THEM.
* Encourage them IN Social Media so the "lesson' is immediately shared and "social kudos" points transfer. 

Duh, who knew. Actually LISTENING and being SOCIAL are important to social media marketing success. The Pit knew, several of their vendors know and the Food Bank knows (https://twitter.com/FoodBankCENC ). In Fact my "cool follow of the day" award goes to the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina since they FOLLOWED ME!

Not giving them the award for following me as much as seeing a great conversation and jumping in with both feet. Every Twitter following that is only a tiny % of those following them could take a lesson from the Food Bank. You can't create relationships with people you don't follow.

And, as the Food Bank demonstrated, when you see a great conversation happening jump in, SHARE and FOLLOW. What do you call it when someone writes a new caption for your photo? Answer: User Generated Content GOLD and I hope you are as smart about what to do with SMM gold as the tribe that formed around my "inside joke" on The Pit's Cuegrass photo today.

And whatever Cuegrass is and whenever it is happening I hope it is as fun as the picture :). Marty

3. Be Transparent.

Alley shared a great stat. Once she adopted transparency via asking instead of assuming and checking in she was able to double the size of the community she manages (Scoopiteers).

Pinterest Marketing: 3 Pinterest Tips via @kimandphilstone [+ Pinterest vs. Twitter] | Social Marketing Revolution | Scoop.it

Phil Stone Knows Pinterest
Phil has almost 18,000 followers on Pinterest. This post shares three great and easy to use Pinterest marketing tips:

* Repin.

* Make Comments.

* Follow Others.

Those are great tips for any social net including Twitter and G+. Phil's post shares how to develop community with Pinterest. BTW, recently I had a "horse race" to 4K followers between Twitter and Pinterest.

Both Twitter and Pinterest were approach 4,000 followers. Here is where we are today for ScentTrail:

@Scenttrail 3,973
Scenttrail on Pinterest 4,082

so Pinterest grew Scenttrail's community 3% faster adding 109 more followers and I spend MUCH less time curating and creating on Pinterest than Twitter. This is NOT to say Twitter should or can be eliminated from your social media marketing. 

Everything works together tapestry style, but Pinterest builds community faster and with less effort than Twitter based on my numbers.

Why Google Plus Is NOT A Social Net But A "Revolution In Online Communication" with B. L. Ochman | Social Marketing Revolution | Scoop.it

GooglePlus Rocks
+B.L. Ochman (@whatsnext) and +David F Leopold (@SmallBizDavid) created a great HangOut about +Google+ today. Several of B. L.'s statements struck me as beyond important including:

GooglePlus is NOT a social net but a revolution in online communication.

and

There has never been a TOOL like it.

This is a great Hangout with a very smart lady. At one point in the final third they discuss how GPlus is a major opportunity for fashion websites. I've done extensive research that supports that idea.

If you keep in mind the idea that GPlus is a tool not a social net it may be the most disruptive thing you can do within your business vertical no matter what it is (I have extensive research to back that up too).

Why kill yourself to catch up to someone who is just waiting for you machinegun in place on Facebook or Twitter when, in almost every case I've studied GPlus is a blue ocean of opportunity?

How did teams I've managed make over $30M online? It wasn't by doing what everyone else was doing exactly as they wre doing it I assure you :). Marty
