Handig app om dingen die je op het web tegenkomt van aantekeningen te voorzien en te bewaren.

wanderingsalsero's curator insight, October 20, 2013 7:54 PM

I haven't read this article but I'm seriously interested in the question implied in the title.....i.e. how to 'mark up' information and get them on the web.  In many cases, I think that's adequate for most people's purpose.

 

I have yet to find a tool that I found really comfortable for doing that.  Maybe this is it.

The 10 Elements of Great Customer Follow-up - Business 2 Community

The 10 Elements of Great Customer Follow-up - Business 2 Community | Business in a Social Media World | Scoop.it
Cendrine Marrouat - www.socialmediaslant.com's insight:

The other night, soon after returning from watching a film at my local theatre, I turned on my computer to check my emails. To my surprise, I found an email from the SCENE Program, which rewards me with free movie vouchers when I have gathered enough points. I had used my points to get the ticket.

 

The company thanked me and hoped that I had enjoyed the film. The message was very friendly and really made me look forward to continuing using the program.

 

Just as I was wondering if I should turn the email into a case study, I came across an article from Ken Mueller that saved me time and effort.

Its time to exercise moderation in marketing, so rehash your hashtag policy and dont fall into the QR code trap.
Cendrine Marrouat - www.socialmediaslant.com's insight:

"Getting a brand's message heard in an environment oversaturated with information often leads marketers to forget this lesson, and go overboard with their marketing efforts. Modern marketers have the tools to make customer experiences infinitely engaging; however, overusing certain strategies can strip them of their effectiveness, or, worse, make them infinitely boring." - Nel Malikova

Brands - it's time to stop being faceless and start showing character on social media

Brands are rather splendid things, aren’t they chaps? Brands inspire loyalty. Brands create excitement. Brands convey complicated and...
Cendrine Marrouat - www.socialmediaslant.com's insight:

There was a time when brands could get away with all-out self-promotion. Until very recently, enticing audiences with a few contests and specials seemed to be enough.

 

Things have changed a lot in the last couple of years. Now, businesses really need to take into consideration what audiences want — especially personality.

 

“Brand engagement on social media is in dire need of serious re-thinking, but it need not be jettisoned altogether. Brands can still find their niche on social media, but to do so they require a new extension that would allow them to engage with the public in a less antisocial fashion. What they need is personality.”

The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Google Plussers

The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Google Plussers | Business in a Social Media World | Scoop.it
These are suggestions and guidelines for those of you want to expand your reach, create valuable connections, and perhaps even establish yourself as an authority in your field.
Cendrine Marrouat - www.socialmediaslant.com's insight:

When I discovered Google+, I was in awe of the content people shared. Now, two years later, I can't spend one day without checking out my stream and engage with other users.

 

G+ is very successful because many members make a conscious effort to keep things that way. They usually post educational and thought-provoking content, remain respectful no matter what topic is discussed, and most importantly, they put others in the limelight. 

 

Mike Allton, one of my favorite bloggers, shares some great tips to help everyone rock their way to the top of the platform.
