How to Show Your Clients the Value of Facebook in 7 Easy Steps

How to Show Your Clients the Value of Facebook in 7 Easy Steps | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

Have you ever had clients who weren't yet sold onFacebook? Most people know Facebook could potentially help them grow their businesses, but getting a page set up and managed properly can still be a daunting task for many folks.

 

First off, you might need to nudge your clients toward acting. When researching your pitch, find examples of similar businesses that have vibrant Facebook presences. 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. Here you can even focus on the clients' particular markets. Finally, show them some examples of pages you've helped develop in order to establish your own credibility.

Martin Gysler's insight:

This message contains some interesting ideas on why and how to start a Facebook fan page for a business owner or a public person.

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.

Martin Gysler's insight:

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."

Facebook Asks You To Please Select Your Emotion | TechCrunch

Facebook Asks You To Please Select Your Emotion | TechCrunch | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

It could make us more willing to express how we feel. Or you could say it over-simplies our complex moods and lives. But today the Facebook status update box began offering the option to “share how you’re feeling or what you’re doing” through a drop-down menu of emoticons and media. We’re entering a more structured era of communication, where both friends and big data know exactly how we tick.

 

Facebook began testing the new sharing options in January, but only released screenshots. Now it appears the feature has been given to a much wider audience. It’s likely the beginning of a global or at least US or English language rollout. I’ve contacted Facebook for details. Most mentions I’ve seen of the feature have been from the US, and many note the similarity to an old Myspace mood sharing option.

Soon everybody can publish with a simple click how it feels... cool, isn't it?

Sometimes people fail to recognize the word "Social" in social media! As a web designer I understood the technical aspects of the internet well, but not the psychological ones, and I failed miserably at one point for this very reason. I finally realized how important it is to socialize and connect with others who share our common interests online, and its this very aspect of social networking that drives my websites today. I still have hickups with not connecting well on most social media platforms, but I nailed it on the head with Google+. So I guess there's always another hurdle we need to jump.

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.)

How to Setup a Wordpress Blog in 5 Minutes

How to Setup a Wordpress Blog in 5 Minutes | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

I started my blog using WordPress and I have found it a platform that makes it easy to own and publish your own content online.

 

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.

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.

Martin Gysler's insight:

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

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!

You also have to develop your style. That said, with the right tools and mindset your time investment lessens substantially - unless you get hooked!

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.

How Do You Know When You’re Overdosing On Social Networks? | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

Social networks are captivating – there’s no doubt. The minds behind building the popular social media platforms of today knew exactly what they were doing and they saw it before any of us ever did. It’s a brilliant idea really – create a medium that allows people from all over the world to connect, share and collaborate like they never have been able to before in the history of the Earth. Incredible!

But an unforeseen (or potentially foreseen, but ignored) consequence is addiction. Social networks have been so good at “helping” us, but now they’re hindering us. From what you might ask? Well, ask your friends, family, parents, even children what they think. And although it is often joked about, it isn’t a joking matter.

It's always great practice to also  to go back and review what you've posted and commented on just in case. This is a must-do.

Yes Dawn, and I think it's not only a must-do but also an educational matter.

Will FB Graph Search necessitate a “Love” button?

Will FB Graph Search necessitate a “Love” button? | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

One of the most unwieldly features of Facebook has always been the search function.


After all there is a lot of information to sift through.


There are already more than a billion people, more than 240 billion photos and more than a trillion connections.


How do I find that thread I was talking on last week? Where are my friends recommend that I travel to if I go to Australia. What events are on in Tokyo this weekend? This kind of thing and more.


I just signed up for the beta of the Facebook Graph Search.


The objects we will find will be determined by “likes”. This may mean that many will become more circumspect with what they click like on. Instead of using it as a networking tool to let others know that you have seen their content. Maybe Facebook now needs a love button?

Martin Gysler's insight:

What is your opinion ?

 

Michael Q Todd has a good idea and maybe it's worth investing a few minutes to think about this question.

Stop Whining And Embrace Google+ Already

Stop Whining And Embrace Google+ Already | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it
Stop complaining about Google+ integration; we've known this day would come since November 2011.
Martin Gysler's insight:

I don’t know you, but I, I’m sure Google+ has some interesting advantage on other social media networks.


Even if I use it not so much, I’m glad it exists.

 

Only the hangout tool is amazing and very useful, isn’t it?
