Image Permissions | Social Media Today | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it
Adding an image to your content is always a good idea, but images come with an unexpected twist; you can’t use many of them without the artist’s or photographer’s actual permission. Citing the source is sufficient with content, but this is not the case with images.

Good Content Marketing Starts With Knowing Your Customers

Good Content Marketing Starts With Knowing Your Customers | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it

All this fuss about “content marketing” has a lot of entrepreneurs scratching their heads. How do I do it? Where do I begin? What exactly is it?

 

Truthfully, I’m not sure when marketing wasn’t about delivering content. Marketers have always been in the business of attracting customers with a product and brand proposition, but a brand has to have something to say. In order to do that, a brand has to have meaningful content. Seems rather obvious, actually.

And, of course, last month Bradley Cooper’s Oscars selfie become Twitter’s most retweeted post of all time.

Google Plus offers users 4 Different Social Entities


  1. Personal Page
  2. Business Page
  3. G+ Local Listing
  4. Community Page


Start with your personal page. optimize it and expand your online presence from there.

Marianne Lalonde's curator insight, March 21, 2014 8:04 AM

The Google+ Advantage for business. Besides the fact that Google is THE search engine, the Google Plus social platform has a few extra layers that you won't find on other social media. 


GooglePlus offers users 4 Different Social Entities 


  1. Personal Page 
  2. Business Page 
  3. G+ Local Listing 
  4. Community Page 


There's tons of other features like authorship, circles and hangouts etc.. But these 4 features alone are reason enough for business owners to consider Google+ if they haven't already. 


Although the headline discusses B2B applications, the advantages to the Google+ platform apply to retail and service industry as well. 


We work in mortgages and insurance products and Google+ offers many different ways to reach both clients and offers great networking opportunities. 


Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.
