Organizations seeking to evolve need to not only recognize the changes in technology and behavior but they also need to take a strategic approach to changing how their employees fundamentally work. Technology without strategy won't get you very far.
Over the last several years, businesses have increased the pace of adopting social media strategies for use in marketing, service and other related capacities. What’s becoming very clear however is that adopting social media and understanding its impact on customer and employee relationships and also the bottom line are not always linked. This disconnect between social media strategies and business value is forcing many executives to rethink their overall approach and the infrastructure they built to support it. The result of this reflective process is motivating organizations to transform everyday social media initiatives into deeper social business strategies
Social media and content marketing require customer trust to help build and extend your 360° brand. Without trust, customers won’t believe what your brand represents or what you say on your site, on third party sites or on social media.
Learning to learn remains a powerful and necessary skill in every field of activity. In addition to this skill, imagine that your learning can be accelerated, your mind challenged and your efficiency improved.
One of the most important roles of presentations is for you to practice your creativity and understanding on a specific topic or subject. When you are able to present your own perspective on a specific matter, your learning experience becomes extremely powerful. You become the owner of that information, gaining ownership over the delivered content. As you get yourself ready to make your knowledge known remember to:...
In a nutshell, online reputation management, or ORM as it’s known, is the practice of making people and businesses look their best on the Internet. To accomplish that, people need to control their online search results because they frequently contain inaccurate, misleading or outdated material which can adversely influence how web searchers view them.
But controlling search results isn’t the only goal of online reputation management. Since where someone lives, their income and their marital status all affect the perception of a person, it’s important to prevent private information from being made public, as well.
Online reputation management became necessary with the advent of social networks, online forums, blogs and other forms of online communication and information sharing. But since current laws are insufficient to prevent total strangers from damaging your online reputation or harvesting your private information, online reputation management is now critical. Reputation.com has provided online reputation management and Internet privacy protection to clients in more than 100 countries since 2006. As a leader in ORM, Reputation.com enjoys widespread recognition for its innovative products and services and is a proud recipient of the 2011 World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer Award.
Small businesses, frequently strapped for both time and cash, often need their marketing dollars to work double time—using the same resources to attract new business and retain loyal customers.
Online marketing service provider Constant Contact conducted a survey in October 2012 of 1,305 small businesses and nonprofits from its customer base to see how different tactics and channels balanced customer acquisition with customer retention.
Respondents were most likely to say that their website struck an effective balance: 77% said the site was well-suited both to engaging existing customers and attracting new ones. A majority of respondents felt similarly about their blog (69% said it was effective at both tasks) and their social media marketing efforts (60%).
Content curation is the process of sorting through the vast amounts of content on the web and presenting it in a meaningful and organized way around a specific theme. The work involves sifting, sorting, arranging, and publishing information. A content curator cherry picks the best content that is important and relevant to share with their community. It isn’t unlike what a museum curator does to produce an exhibition: They identify the theme, they provide the context, they decide which paintings to hang on the wall, how they should be annotated, and how they should be displayed for the public.
Content curation is not about collecting links or being an information pack rat, it is more about putting them into a context with organization, annotation, and presentation. Content curators provide a customized, vetted selection of the best and most relevant resources on a very specific topic or theme. As Rohit Bhargava points out in this post via Robin Good, a content curator continually seeks, makes sense of, and shares the best and most relevant content on a particular topic online. Content curators have integrated this skill into their daily routine.

Are we really having a dialogue about gun violence? Or are we just talking past each other?
This visualization shows the top 100 gun politics links on Twitter last week, with a twist: two items are connected only when there were people who tweeted links to both of them. Much like Amazon's "customers who bought A also bought B," which has been used to visualize political book sales, the graph shows how people who tweeted this also tweeted that.
By José van Dijck In 2006, there appeared to be a remarkable consensus among Internet gurus, activists, bloggers, and academics about the promise of Web 2.0 that users would attain more power than they ever had in the ...
