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 - 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.

Cendrine Marrouat - SocialMediaSlant.com's insight:

Permamarks is an excellent tool for research and blogging. 

It "freezes" the bookmarked content and gives it a dedicated URL. The next time you click the links (be it in two weeks or two years), you land on the pages as they were the day you saved them! 

What do you think could be the possible uses for this tool? I have two: social media research (especially case studies) and to catch content scrapers.

Permamarks's curator insight, August 1, 2013 7:56 AM

Thank you, Cendrine! A great post on the value of using Permamarks – "Each saved page has a permanent, uneditable URL that can be shortened and customized. You can also organize your bookmarks into lists." It is also great to use Permamarks to save links in scoop.it collections, too! Never get a dead link again if a page is removed.

People Don't Buy What You Do, But Why You Do It

People Don't Buy What You Do, But Why You Do It | Business in a Social Media World | Scoop.it
What gets you out of bed in the morning and why should people do business with you? People don't buy what you do, they buy why you do it.
Cendrine Marrouat - SocialMediaSlant.com's insight:

Whether I am in front of a group or talking to a client, I always explain the same thing: “The more relatable you are, the more likely people are to trust / recommend you, and buy from you.”

 

Matt Crawford shares some enlightening thoughts on the topic.

 

“Why do you do what you do? Have you thought about that recently? Whether you are an entrepreneur, an employee, or even a charity worker, it’s important to regularly asses what motivates you in business. It’s not only important for you and your company. It’s important for your customers. Because as Simon Sinek says: People don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it.”
