Stop Butchering Your Facebook Ads Just Because You Can | Soshable | Social Media Blog | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it
Martin Gysler's insight:

Facebook is an extremely powerful advertising tool, but there are right ways and wrong ways to harness that power. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t use it for business-relevant posts. It just means that you cannot use it to spam the wrong messages. Before posting or promoting anything, ask yourself if you would want to see something like it on your news feed if it was from a different industry.

Social Media Tools That Support Google+: Solutions for Small Business

Social Media Tools That Support Google+: Solutions for Small Business | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn can be found in the majority of social media management apps. It is with Google+ that things get a little bit more complicated: very few social media tools support it due to some technical challenges.

 

However, most social media managers would prefer a solution that would allow them posting to all social networks in one place, Google+ including.

 

In this post, you’ll find reference to all tools that are to date integrated with Google+. We’ll bring small business editions to a special focus and review social tools that (1) support Google+ and (2) the ones you can use for free or under $10 a month.

Martin Gysler's insight:

I don't know you, I prefer a solution that would allow posting to all social networks in one place, Google+ including.

 

I wonder why this is not the case in all social media tools.

How Do You Find The Time For Social Media? - Forbes

How Do You Find The Time For Social Media? - Forbes | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

How do you find the time for social media? This is the question I get asked probably more than any other.

 

I have four lovely children, a demanding job, a wife with a successful career and more. So how do I find the time to tweet, blog, share, and comment?

 

The answer is simple: I make the time for social media because I think it’s important.

 

I believe that business people in general, and marketers especially, have an obligation to do more than just consume content or share other people’s content, but to become a content creator and to contribute to your work and your life.

Martin Gysler's insight:

This sentence says all: “In order to find the time for social media, you need to see why it’s important, how it will change your life, how it will improve your business.”

 

Everyone who wants to be successful in the social media area should forget excuses like: “I have not enough time”, “I have nothing to say” (how it is possible, for a business person, to have nothing to say?), “I don’t know how this tools works” etc!

 

If you have not enough time: "According to The Atlantic, we spend more than a quarter (28%) of our day answering email!", maybe, you can invest a little less time, in this activity.

 

Finally, you have the choice, do it, or not, but don't search excuses!

I think its fair to stay that at the beginning of your social media journey it can be very time consuming getting to grips with the different platforms and building up followers and looking for decent content to share. You also have to develop your style. That said, with the right tools and mindset your time investment lessens substantially - unless you get hooked!
Martin Gysler's comment, April 19, 2013 7:56 AM
Indeed, at the beginning the most things are difficult and need more time. After it's rather the mind set who dictate the invested time in social media, it's right, I agree with you Gemma. But in my sens the invested time is worth it because it create many very interesting contacts across the world.

10 Reasons Your Business Still Doesn't Use Pinterest

10 Reasons Your Business Still Doesn't Use Pinterest | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it
Here's our admittedly tongue in cheek list of reasons your small businesses still might not be using Pinterest. Join in the fun.

 

Recent reports suggest Pinterest is well on its way to being one of the biggest social networks ever.

 

A study last month indicates that while Facebook still maintains its domination with 67 percent of American Internet users, Twitter, the second runner up with 16 percent of the same audience, may soon be overtaken by Pinterest, which now has about 15 percent.

Martin Gysler's insight:

If you run a business who can improve his visibility with pictures, maybe you should read this post.

 

Even if it's logical, it's also a reminder for all who don't use Piterest yet.

The Secret to a Perfect Facebook Post

The Secret to a Perfect Facebook Post | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

Small businesses that use Facebook to get the word out and promote their companies should check out a new report from Buddy Media, a social ad-management software provider. The report is drawn from the company’s analysis of 200 clients’ Facebook posts over a two-week period, in addition to the comments and “likes” spurred by those posts.

 

The report contains a number of good takeaways, including its findings on post length. It found that Facebook posts containing 80 or fewer characters had 27 percent higher engagement rates than longer posts. (You’re not the only one who struggles to be brief: Just 19 percent of all posts analyzed were that short.)

Facebook rolling out option for fans to receive notifications about page posts

Facebook rolling out option for fans to receive notifications about page posts | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

Facebook’s algorithms are sometimes a problem for fan pages who publish only a few posts. The problem is that they don’t appear in the stream of their fans. With this new feature, that could change, if the fan... activates this new option. Interesting! [note Martin Gysler]

 

Facebook is rolling out a new feature for users to opt in to receive notifications every time a page makes a post.

 

This seems to be a solution for fans who don’t want to miss any page posts that might not make it into their News Feed because of Facebook’s algorithms. For example, some users might want to be aware of all posts from a news publication, an artist they really like or a small business that doesn’t post very often. The feature is similar to the “close friends” option, which alerts users each time a new update or photo is shared by someone on the list.

The aptly named world wide web has opened up new methods of marketing for businesses both great and small. The benefits of localizing company websites to target foreign markets are now widely recognized (Common Sense Advisory studies suggest an average return of US$25 for every $1 spent on localization) and many businesses now use social media platforms for domestic marketing, but very few appear to be using those platforms to promote their services abroad.

 

For example, Econsultancy’s 2010 Social Media and Online PR Report reported that 83% of marketers were planning to increase their spending on social media this year, yet only 26% had plans to run campaigns in more than one country.

Let the clients know what they're missing out on. You can also get their attention by showing them the data on Facebook's exponential user growth and the mind-blowing predictions of continued growth.

The Failure Of Social Media

The Failure Of Social Media | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

Social Media doesn't work for the vast majority of small businesses.

That was the main message in the USA Today article titled, Study: Social media a bust for small businesses, published on April 17th, 2013. From the news item:"About 61% of small businesses don't see any return on investment on their social-media activities, according to a survey released Tuesday from Manta, a social network for small businesses. Yet, almost 50% say they've increased their time spent on social media, and only 7% have decreased their time. What businesses are trying to get out of social media: 36% said their goal was to acquire and engage new customers, 19% said to gain leads and referrals, and 17% said to boost awareness. Facebook was most cited as the hardest to maintain social-media platform, according to the survey." There is a big lesson in this data...

 

What you want from social media may be very different from what it is.

Yes that's it : "Don't kid yourself, social media works. In fact, all media works... you just have to do the hard work of figuring out how to make it work for you. There are no silver bullets."

It is the foundation to the success of this blog which currently receives over 300,000 hits per month.

 

If you’re looking for an easy way to create a web presence and start sharing your ideas online, the best way to do this is to create a blog. Millions of users around the world already express themselves and share their thoughts by means of their personal blogs.

 

The advantage of having your own WordPress blog that is self-hosted is that you own it.

 

It is good to have a Facebook “page” or a Tumblr blog but they are owned by someone else and you can have a web presence there but under their “Terms and Conditions” It is basically a rental.

Does everybody need a social media strategy? | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

As the hype of social media begins to die down and companies re-evaluate their efforts with a steely-eyed look at the cost versus benefits, I think it is time to re-visit this important question: Does every company really need a social media marketing plan?

 

This is a very complex question. So to help answer it, I looked at a few companies with brands that might not be natural fits for a social media presence. Adult diapers. Coal. Hazardous waste clean-up. Playing cards.

 

Let’s explore this important question by taking a romp through some unusual case studies that stretch the boundaries of social media marketing thinking.

Through this six different companies we can learn a lot about social media strategy and if everybody needs a social media strategy.
