What is a CRM and why do I need one on LinkedIn?

What is a CRM and why do I need one on LinkedIn? | Web 2.0 Marketing Social & Digital Media | Scoop.it

Content Relationship Management and LinkedIn


You might have heard the term, or might even be using a CRM in your marketing and sales efforts. If not, you should be! According to Wikipedia, “Customer relationship management (CRM) is a widely implemented model for managing a company’s interactions with customers, clients, and sales prospects.” When using social media, and in particular LinkedIn, we have the ability to download some contact information about connections (1st level contacts). LinkedIn doesn’t really have a useful CRM within its UI (user interface) so its you might consider utilizing third party apps like Avectra’s Social CRM.

 

Wikipedia continues, “It involves using technology to organize, automate, and synchronize business processes—principally sales activities, but also those for marketing, customer service, and technical support.”

Don’t Underestimate the Power of (Social) Collaboration. It Is Not a Given

Don’t Underestimate the Power of (Social) Collaboration. It Is Not a Given | Web 2.0 Marketing Social & Digital Media | Scoop.it

Ok, back to Social Business. After the last few days where I have been blogging a number of different times about some musings on redesigning and refining further along the workplace of the future, it’s time to get down to business again and continue to share further insights around social networking / computing for business or the good old Social Business itself.

 

By the way, stay tuned because very soon I will be putting together an article where I will explain why I’m going to move away from the social business concept into another one that I think is much more accurate and fitting in helping explain where we are today with the whole mantra behind Social. But till then, how about if one of these days you come to work and you bump into a rather controversial article, a superb read, actually, that questions the whole social business industry, right where it hurts the most: Social Networking for Business doesn’t count much on today’s CIO’s top priorities, after all. Disappointing or a huge opportunity? Both, eventually!

When the words, “I don’t have time for blogging” begin to roll off of your lips, you are really saying that you don’t have time for the activities below. Because if done right, blogging is the single greatest tool for making these things happen.


1. Driving web traffic

How to Spend Less Time on Twitter and Get More Out of It

How to Spend Less Time on Twitter and Get More Out of It | Web 2.0 Marketing Social & Digital Media | Scoop.it
Have you become desensitized and disillusioned with Twitter?

 

Do you feel like you are suffering from Twitter Tiredness?

 

Do you feel like you are “tweeting in the dark”, spending more and more time on Twitter but getting less and less out of it?

 

I know the story. A few months (or years) ago, you signed up for a Twitter account. You dutifully wrote a clever bio, uploaded your picture and started tweeting. Maybe you followed some accounts and learned a bit about the culture and etiquette of the network before sending your first tweet.

 

After following a few people and building a following of your own, you started following more and more and retweeting more and more, all while spending less and less time engaging in conversations and writing original tweets.
