It depends on the needs of the business - how diversified it is, etc.  The owners, officers and managers should be able to decide this.  It's not exactly a one size fits all response to this question.  Specialists are often needful and necessary.  Generalists are usually good to have available for bouncing ideas off of.  They help with tunnel or narrow vision.  Don't you think?

Display Your Google+ Posts as Ads Throughout Google

Display Your Google+ Posts as Ads Throughout Google | Work From Home | Scoop.it
Today, Google announced that Brands who are actively using their Google+ Pages will soon be able to use their status updates to generate display ads which will be displayed across the Google network. Similar to Facebook's Sponsored Stories, viewers will see the ad in a way that's close to how it appeared on the original Google+ timeline. But that's where the similarity ends.
Treathyl Fox's insight:

 

Mr. Alton who published this article last December (2013) tagged it: Google and AdWords. But it is so much more. When you read (or re-read) this article, latch on to these words: Game Changer, Enormous Reach Potential, and Prepare.  Streamlining the ad posting process are not the exact words in the article, but this Google feature will save business owners and/or their employees a lot of work!

My discovery of the Tumblr blogging platform was accidental.  I noticed that there were a lot of artists and photographers and erroneously assumed that nobody else published there.  I was wrong!  Never been so happy to own up to my mistakes.  Created this blog in 2012 and am still experimenting with its wide range of features.  YAHOO recently acquired Tumblr.  That was a good business decision.

The 5 Types of Social Followers that Every Business Needs [INFOGRAPHIC]

The 5 Types of Social Followers that Every Business Needs [INFOGRAPHIC] | Work From Home | Scoop.it

When you’re a brand establishing yourself on social platforms such as Twitter and Facebook, in the very early days you’re usually less concerned about who is following you and more about how many...

It’s superficial, of course, but large numbers of followers on Twitter and Likes on your Facebook Page do have provide a level of social proof that makes you more attractive to new followers, and new Likes – when someone sees that you’re already popular, they’re far more likely to make the leap and get on board themselves.

But for businesses looking to maximize the ROI of their social media strategy, how many is always far, far less important than who. Pretty soon you realise that a big number is meaningless unless it’s actually converting into brand awareness, website footfall and sales – so who should you be looking to attract?

Early adopters, social sharers and power-users are all pivotal in helping your brand reach critical max, but they’re not alone. Indeed, lurkers and even haters can become powerful influencers if you take the time to engage and inspire them.

This infographic takes a look at the five types of social follower that every business needs...
