@Flavmartins article with #Infographic by @Zendesk is clear:


"Word of mouth carries a big, heavy stick when it comes to the reputation of your business products and services. Facebook, Twitter, Yelp, and other social media and reviews sites help to amplify to voice of the customer. With the power that a single bad customer service experience can have at creating future business opportunities, it’s critical that you focus on investing in the overall #customer #experience!"

This is the first in a series of planning and executing successful digital marketing campaigns by Michael Nelson, for Curatti
Jan Gordon:

Digital marketing can either make or break a small business.  If you do it well, you’re rewarded with a reliable and growing stream of customers.  If you do it poorly, you can kill your brand or your business with wasted time and blown budgets.


How do you give your business the best chance to be on the successful side of the equation?


Here are a few highlights:


Marketing is about generating sales for your business.  That is and should be the purpose of marketing regardless of whether you are building your brand or specifically trying to grow your revenue.  


We have inbound marketing, attraction marketing, email marketing, influence marketing, network marketing, content marketing, outbound marketing, affiliate marketing and so on.  


How do we pick one, especially if we are small business owners and not marketing experts?


The most important word in those phrases is “marketing.”  It’s the root of what we’re trying to do.  


If you charge ahead with digital marketing without a clear goal and way to measure your progress, then it doesn’t matter which marketing method you select.  


Begin with setting the theme for your campaign.  Your theme will be high level and visionary in nature.  You then create three (no more) goals that if reached will propel you towards your goal.  


Now you plan.  How will you reach your goals, what needs to be done, what level of resource will be committed to each action and so on.  


The next article will address creating marketing messages,

Circumstance Marketing, and crafting those messages for the digital world.  So stay tuned!

Questions That Readers Want Answered In Your Marketing Content

Questions That Readers Want Answered In Your Marketing Content | The Twinkie Awards | Scoop.it

Whether it’s your website, blog, brochure, newsletter, Facebook page, press release or newspaper ad, nobody reads your content because they’re simply enamored with your business. Why? Because nobody cares about your business. Don’t take it personally. And please, stop scowling at me because I’m sure it’s not the first time you’ve heard this. People read your marketing content because they’re looking for answers to questions. The first of these questions is usually, “What can your business do for me?”...

Adventures in Marketing: Polaroid Will Make an ‘Instagram Camera’ | PRNewser

Adventures in Marketing: Polaroid Will Make an ‘Instagram Camera’ | PRNewser | The Twinkie Awards | Scoop.it

As if Instagram weren’t easy enough already, last week we learned that the Socialmatic, aka the “Instagram Camera”, is really going to happenthanks to a deal between an Italian inventor and the folks responsible for the Polaroid name. We find the concept behind this product amusing, but it also represents the latest step in an interesting rebranding experiment.

 

The old-school camera company went bankrupt more than a decade ago, and the folks who bought the name quickly began making money by licensing it to other brands. C&A Licensing, which owns the rights to all things “Polaroid”, already attempted to tie it to the smartphone craze earlier this year by planning a series of “FotoBar” locations that aim to put the brand back in business by aping the Apple Genius Bar retail model....

Marisa Chiulli's curator insight, February 6, 2013 9:08 AM

One of the biggest objections to engaging with social media marketing is time – usually, not having enough of it. It’s an objection I’ve heard a lot over the last few years, because there is a widely-held perception that effective social media marketing takes a huge investment in time and energy for it to be worthwhile. And whilst any marketing activity obviously requires effort, energy and a time investment, it’s all relative.

 

It’s also important to remember that one of the biggest benefits of social media marketing is the simple fact that delivering online content can be the most cost-effective and time-effective part of the marketing mix. So, if you’re new to social media marketing, or are finding yourself spending hours on it without seeing much return on your investment, try my top tips for time-saving on social media engagement:

 

Use common sense.

There is a temptation to try to be everywhere, on all social media platforms, spreading the word. Why not try using common sense instead, and create a stronger online presence on key platforms, where you know your target clients or customers are hanging out? Engage with solid social media strategy before jumping on any social platform for the sake of just being there.

Online Marketing Experts Aren't Always Right | Feldman Creative | The Twinkie Awards | Scoop.it

Social media marketing is not a one-size-fit-all thing. What some experts recommend may not work for you. And that's normal. We have different audiences, experiences, and ways of seeing the world.


Barry Feldman offers a balanced approach in this article and asks us to stop taking what the "gurus" says at face value. 


A great read!

As always, Brian Solis says it like it is. 

"Social media is important but I’d argue we aren’t celebrating it for the reasons we should. Instead, we are forcing social media to conform to traditional thinking and processes rather than adapting business philosophies and supporting methodologies to meet new opportunities."

Can I get an amen?

This post will explore why all turnover is not created equal.  Measuring sales turnover as a percentage can be misleading.  A lower percentage isn’t always better.  Yet turnover is probably the most measured sales metric.  HR, sales leaders, and Sales ops all measure it.

Robin Good's curator insight, February 28, 2013 5:27 AM


Michael Brenner has put together a useful list of the top 30 news sources you should be following if you are interested in online business and marketing news.


Useful, resourceful. 7/10




P.S.: In my humble opinion, this list is tainted by the author placing the magazine he writes for (Forbes in this case) as the top one in the list. As a curator this is something I suggest to avoid like the pest as it instantly taints your supposedly impartial collector skills with a way too evident marketing effort, which dents significantly into the credibility of the overall list and the on the reputation of the writer.


In my effort to help others recognize effective curation from simple-minded content marketing efforts I feel quite important to highlight such small details, as even though they may appear of no relevance to some people today, they will have enormous importance - in my opinion - in the near future.
