7 Attributes of CEOs Who Get Social Media

7 Attributes of CEOs Who Get Social Media | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it

Peter Aceto, the CEO of Tangerine, recently said in The Globe and Mail, “I would rather engage in a Twitter conversation with a single customer than see our company attempt to attract the attention of millions in a coveted Superbowl commercial.

 

This is the preference of a truly social CEO. Unfortunately, chief executives that embrace and understand the promise of social media are rare, so rare that we call them “blue unicorns” in our book, A World Gone Social. Why blue unicorns? Because CEOs that embrace social as much as leaders like Aceto are still so uncommon that we aren’t just looking for any unicorn, we’re looking for a specific color of unicorn.

10 content marketing mistakes to avoid | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it

Blog posts take hours to write, great images need to be found or created, and those social networks need to be managed and nurtured. It is often not done or persisted with because there is no apparent quick reward.

 

One way of thinking about great content marketing is that you are building an audience before you need them. Content builds credibility, trust, and followers over time. This earns you the right to then sell them something down the track.

 

Here are some content marketing mistakes that many amateurs new to the game are making....

Why Twitter is the Ideal Platform for Engagement | Convince and Convert | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it

E 'questa l'atmosfera a barra che rende Twitter la piattaforma ideale per l'impegno dei clienti, e per lo stesso motivo per cui Twitter è il social network ideale per il marketing: Twitter è l'unico social network dove le marche ei consumatori abbiano un campo da gioco e le linee senza restrizioni di una comunicazione chiara e concisa.

 

Engagement Goldmine

 

Cos'altro rende Twitter la migliore piattaforma per l'impegno? Cominciamo con la diversità del pubblico. Rispetto a, diciamo, Pinterest, una presa di image-driven che distorce femminile Twitter attira non solo un pubblico unico, ma rende il pubblico desiderato facile da individuare. Caratteristiche e gli interessi sono facili da riconoscere non solo attraverso i profili, ma attraverso i tweet, retweet, hashtag, ecc che le singole azioni.

How to Integrate Social Media and Blogging | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it

Ideas that spread, win. ~Seth Godin


A few years ago, blogging and social media were separate. Blogging was long-form, serious, and crafted. Social media was short-form, personal, and spontaneous. Some people predicted that social media would replace blogging because of declining attention spans.


Now blogging and social media not only amicably coexist; they complement each other.

@Jay Cross gives a detailed and clear use case of how collaborative content curation can save millions to large organizations as it saves employee time while involving them in the process.


He also explains his content curation routine that he sees as a mandatory skill to be trained by modern employers.


He makes a great job at connecting two sides of content curation:


- the fact it's saving people's time to look for meaning in information overload themselves,


- the fact it's rewarding for content curators as it helps them build their professional brands. 


A win-win no-brainer for smart organizations.
