The Social Media Dimensions Blueprint (Infographic) | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it

Like all new technology, social media changes fast.

Just trying to keep your head around all of the different platforms, how to approach them and, of course, how to design for them can be a full time job.

Social media has proven itself as a crucial component of a brand’s marketing mix, but with the many different platforms, it can be very difficult to put forth a consistent brand image online.


The [Ridiculously Exhausitive] Social Media Design Blueprint features all of the major design dimensions for all of the major platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIN, YouTube, Pinterest and the most recent entry, Instagram.

Why B2B Marketers Still Don't Get Social Media--And 7 Steps For Fixing That

Why B2B Marketers Still Don't Get Social Media--And 7 Steps For Fixing That | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it
Who cares if you have 25000 followers on Twitter if youre not doing anything with or for them


Here are 7 steps to take to help you increase your social media effectiveness:


1.Understand why social media matters. “Social media is becoming a real competitive advantage for the companies that do it well; the gap is widening between the companies that have been organizing around social media and those that have not,” says Kardon.
2.Create goals. What do you want to achieve from your social media? Do you want to track sales, monitor customer complaints, grow brand equity? Do you want social media to do a push or pull job?
3.Get top management buy-in. “You need a champion to get people from across the organization to pay attention and act,” says Moorman.
4.Give social media a home. In our experience and that of many social media experts, it belongs in marketing.
5.Structure your social media team.

Regardless of the approach, however, there has to be a built-in workflow system that links social media to customer service, sales, operations, and the other business processes.
6.Train employees. Don’t just assume they get social media.
7.Get accountable. Establish an accountability system that demonstrates the impact of social media on your objectives.

What Types of Content Actually Drive Leads? | Social Media Today

What Types of Content Actually Drive Leads? | Social Media Today | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it

It all starts with understanding your target audience or your target persona(s), and reaching them through the content channels that appeal to them most. And by doing that you can keep in mind following ideas:


Understand Your Lead Source

If the primary goal of content marketing is to drive leads, then make sure you know where your leads are coming from. If you’re driving more leads from your blog content than your webinar landing page, focus more on blog content.


Leads Are Great – Revenue is Real

The reality is that it doesn’t matter how many leads you have if you can’t effectively convert them to customers. Leads are a good early indicator of channel effectiveness, but ultimately content marketing ROI needs to be based on customers and revenue – not leads.


Content Should Be Viral

Social media has become the most prominent delivery mechanism for content marketing. Often your content assets can only go as far as your social reach. If your Twitter following is full of fake accounts, all you have is a big, fake, vain follower number. If you have a real following, you’ll have an audience of influencers and advocates who will share and create conversations around your content. That’s virality for you! Measure which types of content tend to go viral.


Work With The Resources You Have

You may come to understand which types of content drive more leads and conversions for your business, but another factor to consider is the time and money that goes into different types of content. So, depending on the resources available to you as a marketer, focus your efforts on producing content that you know to be effective.

Would you like to become a social media marketer? You know, so you can actually use Twitter and Facebook – proactively – at work?

Sure you would. But you have to memorise a few key stats, first. For example, did you know that the U.S. is the top country on Twitter, and that 34 percent of marketers have generated leads using the micro-blogging social network?

Tools for Following, Unfollowing and Managing Lists on Twitter

Tools for Following, Unfollowing and Managing Lists on Twitter | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it

It’s been a while since SocialTimes did a round-up of the various tools that helped users manage their Twitter accounts by finding who to follow, following new people, unfollowing many people at once and organizing groups of users they follow into lists.

Since our last round-up, Twitter has restricted use of its API significantly, causing several tools to shut down. No longer functional areUntweeps, Just Unfollow, Twit Cleaner, Who Follows Whom and Tweet Effect. Tweeter Karma is still functional but has had to remove its bulk unfollow tools.

A new study by Burst Media concludes that one-quarter of Internet users use Google+, placing it squarely in the #2 position for social networks. The data were from a self-reported study in March 2013, with a margin of error of +/- 1.9%. Which sounds rather compelling until you realize that Nielsen did a similar study in the same time-frame which determined that Google was smaller than Twitter (and users spend less than 7 minutes per month on G+).

4 Simple Tips for Better Networking

4 Simple Tips for Better Networking | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it

The right connections can be the difference between boom and bust.

Entrepreneur Josh Hartwell offers some tips for expanding your network--and your company's potential.


1. Expand your comfort zone. At work, meet people in other departments and ask about their jobs. Introduce yourself to strangers at industry events, workshops, and luncheons.


2. Remember--every relationship matters. That includes customers, employees, and the people who are trying to sell to you. You never know who will become a key decision maker at another company.


3. Develop a thick skin. Not everyone you contact is going to respond. Don't take that personally. Let rejection remind you to be more responsive to the people who reach out to you.


4. Be persistent. If you don't follow up after your first contact attempt goes unanswered, you're not being persistent enough. Never assume that one message is enough.
