Infographic: How Social Media Impacts Purchasing Decisions... | General Social Media Tips and Tools | Scoop.it

Many professionals are turning to social media as a place of trust for their purchasing decisions and it’s no different for the IT industry. IT decision makers have a highly-regarded task of ensuring they recommend the best products and services for their organizations.
LinkedIn, Forrester Consulting, and Research Now zeroed in on these professionals to see how they utilize social media, including its effects on their purchasing decisions and how they engage with social.
According to Michael Weir, Head of Category Development for the Technology Industry at LinkedIn, “It’s no surprise that [IT decision makers] are heavy users of social networks. In fact, 85% have used at least one social network for business purposes. What’s surprising is that 73% have engaged with an IT vendor on a social network – underscoring the value of the channel for IT marketers. Even more revealing is the fact that social media is now a critical source of influence across the entire decision making process, not just during the initial research phase.”

The Anatomy of a Successful Social Marketing Campaign

The Anatomy of a Successful Social Marketing Campaign | General Social Media Tips and Tools | Scoop.it

Business-to-business marketers today must fully utilize social media channels if they want a chance at surviving alone in the deep recesses of space. A good social marketing campaign often times starts with the blog, or the mother-ship as I like to call it, then branches out to cover each of the social networks with tailored messaging optimized with keywords. Paying attention to the characteristics of each social platform and playing to their strengths is essential to optimizing for maximum virality.

Businesses that understand the importance of adding social elements to their marketing campaigns empower customers and prospects to share with their networks while building brand advocacy. This peer-to-peer word of mouth messaging is highly trusted and very effective in amplifying the impact of your campaigns.


In the following infographic, learn more about the elements of a successful social marketing campaign.

As the old saying goes: "A picture is worth a thousand words." This also reminds me of Malcomb Gladwell's book, "Blink." Amazon: http://amzn.to/13AalVQ

It's all about images now. 

Bruce McDuffee's curator insight, August 20, 2013 2:53 PM

It's important to keep in mind your audience and how the ideal prospect likes to consume content.  Scientists or engineers for example my consume or respect different media than consumers of clothing or electronics.

The 5 Types of Social Followers that Every Business Needs [INFOGRAPHIC]

The 5 Types of Social Followers that Every Business Needs [INFOGRAPHIC] | General Social Media Tips and Tools | Scoop.it

When you’re a brand establishing yourself on social platforms such as Twitter and Facebook, in the very early days you’re usually less concerned about who is following you and more about how many...

It’s superficial, of course, but large numbers of followers on Twitter and Likes on your Facebook Page do have provide a level of social proof that makes you more attractive to new followers, and new Likes – when someone sees that you’re already popular, they’re far more likely to make the leap and get on board themselves.

But for businesses looking to maximize the ROI of their social media strategy, how many is always far, far less important than who. Pretty soon you realise that a big number is meaningless unless it’s actually converting into brand awareness, website footfall and sales – so who should you be looking to attract?

Early adopters, social sharers and power-users are all pivotal in helping your brand reach critical max, but they’re not alone. Indeed, lurkers and even haters can become powerful influencers if you take the time to engage and inspire them.

This infographic takes a look at the five types of social follower that every business needs...
