Transforming Social ROI From a Myth Into Reality

Transforming Social ROI From a Myth Into Reality | Social Media Tips, News, and Tools | Scoop.it
Here’s a question I still get way too often: “What’s the ROI of social media?” It’s usually a B2B marketer that’s doing the asking, someone seemingly resigned to spending valuable time and resources on social media without really understanding why. Or it's a marketer that totally gets the value of investing in the company blog, Twitter profile and LinkedIn groups but still needs help convincing their “old-school” CMO or CFO that investing in socia Topic: Customer Experience.
Cendrine Marrouat - www.socialmediaslant.com's insight:


I don't usually share articles on ROI, but this one hits the mark on many levels. 


I like how the author tries to shift the mindset from superficial numbers (likes) to clicks and downloads, for example. He also stresses the importance of focusing on the right social activities. 


The most important idea, though, is this one: "Almost without fail, when a lead is generated via social media someone on the sales team says they already have that prospect in their pipeline — never mind that it hasn't been touched in 18 months. Bottom line: social media often doesn’t get credit even when it works."


Overall, a very interesting article.

How to Fight Back Against Decreasing Facebook Visibility

How to Fight Back Against Decreasing Facebook Visibility | Social Media Tips, News, and Tools | Scoop.it
Facebook's recent algorithm changes are impacting small businesses. What can you do to fight back against decreasing Facebook visibility?
Cendrine Marrouat - www.socialmediaslant.com's insight:


Worried about people not seeing your updates on Facebook anymore? You are not the only one! Many people have complained about it.


There will soon come a time when paying to play is of the essence on the social network. So, as Liz Alton says, "If Facebook as a network sends you customers that tend to make purchases and a decline in this traffic flow will cause your business to take a hit, it’s time to evaluate your advertising options." 


Otherwise, you can always look at other options: Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Google+, and Scoop.it (of course).


Some interesting tips in this article.

If you’re my friend on Facebook, I will hide you if you do any of the following: Consistently rant about news, politics, or religion. Write updates that are so long they require me to click the “read more” link. Promote ANY kind of direct selling: jewelry, scrapbooking supplies, candles, nutrition products. I don’t care. If you try to sell me, I’m done.

Guest post: 5 ways you can use reddit to spark social media creativity | Social Media Tips, News, and Tools | Scoop.it
As is the case with anything that is unfamiliar, heading over to reddit.com for the first time can leave even the most seasoned digital marketers left scratching their chins. Having grown up in the age of social media, it’s fairly easy for me to grasp most things on the Internet. I immediately became the go-to source for explaining anything emerging in my first job at a city office. “How do we advertise on Facebook” or “how do we get more Twitter followers” were common questions. When our site received over 4,000 visits in one day from reddit, my boss asked me to explain “just what the heck is reddit anyway?”

"The funny thing is that these Fortune 100s think they’re building community for themselves, for their own bottom lines. But at the end of the day, communities own themselves."
