How to Become a Hit on Pinterest, Using Pinterest Analytics

How to Become a Hit on Pinterest, Using Pinterest Analytics | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it

If you’re using social media to promote your business or nonprofit, I have a question for you: is your business’s content on Pinterest?

If you’ve been pinning it yourself, then of course it is.

If not, you could be in store for a surprise.




Via Kelly Lieberman
donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): Pinterest analytics will show you the most popular products, topics and information people are interested in from your website. Use that information to come up with content about the things they like. If you are providing your audience with what they want, they will continue to engage with you, pin your content, endorse you, visit your website and buy from you.

7 Creative Ways To Use The New Twitter Header

7 Creative Ways To Use The New Twitter Header | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it

Seems like every other month a social site is changing their graphic area sizing and layout.


Twitters recent update is good, but who knows how long it will be around.


Since Twitter has now cleaned stuff up and given you a huge open area to work with, there is a lot you can do with it.


Via Brian Yanish - MarketingHits.com
donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): There you go, 7 ways you can use the new Twitter header in your blogging or business.


Here are a few things to keep in mind.

No matter which idea you try out, make sure to keep it updated. If you are doing the contest or launch idea, make sure to take the header down once that was been completed.

If you are doing the community idea, make sure once you start, keep it going and updated weekly.

If you are doing the event idea, make sure to update it on a regular, because there will be nothing more sad than if your event header is 13 months old haha

You get the idea, no matter what keep it updated, this doesn’t mean you have to change it weekly, but every couple months is fine. This is always a great way to show you are active on Twitter and with your community.

Social Media Bad Etiquette: Stop Interrupting and Start Serving! by @pammktgnut

With the introduction of social media and modern marketing tactics and strategies, times are changing. Many of the old school marketing tactics that use to work for marketers in businesses from startups to Fortune 100 organizations no longer work today.

 

It's clear that there is not a need to send mass numbers of tweets or Facebook updates to fill space. The social inter webs are tearing at the seams with an overwhelming amount of noise. It's getting harder for brands to stand out and unfortunately many of them are falling to noisy, interruptive and spammy tactics.

 

It's not about pushing content to the masses as fast as we can and hoping we get eyeballs, ears and mindshare. Hope is not a strategy, nor is spam.

 

Smart marketers are quickly learning they must stop the interruption marketing tactics and instead focus on delivering value, meaningful conversation and connecting at the human level with the people within their communities and circle of influence both online and offline.

 

In this episode of the Social Zoom Factor podcast, Pam Moore, CEO Founder Marketing Nutz, social media consulting, social business, digital marketing and branding agency helps you do a reality check on if you are interrupting conversations versus providing value. We'll dig into tactics and strategies to identify such negative strategies and transition to an approach that will deliver much higher result for both you and the members of your social media communities.

 

Episode Highlights:

Interruption marketing defined

Acknowledging if you are guilty of interruption marketing

How to quit interrupting and start providing value

57 Little Things to Double Check Before Your Website Launch

57 Little Things to Double Check Before Your Website Launch | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it

Admit it: Launching a new website is stressful -- even for the most seasoned digital marketers.

 

Websites are complex. There are so many things that are easily overlooked, like a broken link or a misspelled word. 

 

And of course, a handful of things could go very, very wrong. Like what if you forget to test an important data capture form and then lose out on generating a bunch of new leads? Or worse, what if you forget to properly set up site redirects, and those valuable search engine visitors get a page not found message?

 

Instead of worrying about the what ifs, wouldn't it be much easier to have a comprehensive website checklist to run down before every site launch? One that you could use for enterprise websites, microsites, landing pages, and everything in between?

 

Well, you're in luck because I've put together the following list of 57 things to check before launching a website. It's the same list that our team uses at our digital agency, and it's a list you can copy, edit, and make your own based on the software you're using to launch and host your website. We've grouped items into seven categories: page content, design, functionality, SEO, analytics, security & backups, and compliance. Keep on reading to make sure you don't forget a thing before your next launch.
