Marty Note Never really noticed this page before, but love it. Can't figure out the algorithm that controls it and that makes it kind of fun. Can't figure out how to make it work as it acts like a pass through - content goes to other nets like Twitter or Facebook - but cool page. Bound to be a way to use it. Has anyone? How?

Using Scoopit For Personal Branding and Online Reputation Management (ORM)

Using Scoopit For Personal Branding and Online Reputation Management (ORM) | Personal Branding Using Scoopit |

I've been a Scoopiteer since Marc and Guilluame were kind enough to let me drive their very cool new car. Like many Internet marketers I have more and more content generating less and less control. 

The more content I add the more difficult it gets to keep up with. I've been wondering how to collect and watch my personal brand. Google Authorship has the promise of a collective personal "commons", but actually using authorship to help with such a practical application today feels remote.

Instead I've reorganized my Thank You feed for personal brand management. The mission is simple - create a single feed with the "best of" content from 5 blogs, 4 Twitter feeds, Google Plus, Storify, Facebook and Twitter. 

Think of the numbers. I create or curate over 50 posts a day and typically write at least 1,000 words. Translation: almost 400,000 words and 20,000 posts to keep up with each year. And I am by no means a PRO at this. Imagine what Michele Smorgon or Robin Good are managing (many multiples of Martin W. Smith). As Personal Branding ORM Solution
Scoopit can help. I changed all the sources to this feed (will rename it soon) to RSS feeds from the digital properties I contribute to regularly. I cleaned out ALL OTHER SOURCES. 

1. Change "Sources" To Feeds From Your Content.

I also changed the keywords to my name or social media synonyms such as @ScentTrail and @StoryofCancer.  These changes set up Scoopit so it watches my back, helps this feed curate from across time and many digital properties and catches reactions and content evolution. 

2. Change Keyords To Ones Relevant to You (your name, social names, etc.).

Curation perfecta para quienes están en la fase de creación i estabilización  de un Online Reputation. Y a no olvidar por un Community Magager.

Social Media ROI - Not Hard To Prove #infographic

Social Media ROI - Not Hard To Prove #infographic | Personal Branding Using Scoopit |

When it comes to proving the ROI of social media it isn’t as hard as you might think. The key is to ensure you are tracking and collecting data effectively.


First we need to set our objectives.


What are you trying to achieve from your social media activity? Here are some typical examples:

- Lead generation

- Sales

- Retention


- Email signups

- Cost reductions

Mid to Small Companies Still Struggle With Social Media


First-hand experience as a digital analyst working with companies of all sizes reveal there is still a great deal of poor execution among mid to small companies when it comes to practicing social media. Strategies, tactics and community management all too often are misaligned to the realities of how best to leverage social media.


Several things to keep in mind to realize ROI.


Don’t Act Impulsively

There is a big di­fference between understanding the marketplace & knowing when to leap into the latest platform.



• Is this new network a fad or does it have potential longevity?

• Does the purpose of the network align with our brand and social identity?

• Is our current or potential audience on this network?

• What content and tools do we need to successfully manage on a daily basis?

• Will we see a return on investment / energy if we join this network?


And remember Social media and the strategy applied is no longer just a micro-segment of marketing. Think beyond the basics and take into account your company’s general business objectives, fiscal plans and sales goals, then align your strategy to that agenda. If no metrics currently exist—be proactive!


Establish benchmarks, create metrics, track progress and merchandize appropriately.



• Do my social goals support greater business goals?

• Are the social strategies and tactics outlined attainable?

• What is our brand voice and how do we adapt that for social?

• What resources, human and technological, do we need to flourish?

• What processes are in place to test, learn and adjust as necessary?


Be smart. Track, analyze and report on results to prove ongoing value and return for the company and ROI will start to become evident if social media is practiced well.

Content - Regardless of form or viewing device, video is an ideal medium to engage, inform, and entertain prospective buyers and clients. Here's what you need to know to get in on ...

Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Wrote a long note about my frustration with how videographers sell their services that got sucked into the great vortex. These are great tips and I need 20 to 50 videos BUT I need each video to cost HUNDREDS not THOUSANDS.

Feels like someone should be able to appify video creation like Piktochart just did for infographics (review here ). Wish a video vendor would solve the PAIN since learning to create my own feels like a bridge too far even though the need is a simple and templated one.

In the near future Video will overtake photos for engagement on Social Media.

One definition of Influence is “the capacity to have an effect on the character, development or behavior of someone or something”

To be truly successful you must have the ability and power to influence.
