3 Secrets to Business Insider's Success on LinkedIn - MediaShift

3 Secrets to Business Insider's Success on LinkedIn - MediaShift | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

As LinkedIn regulars know, LinkedIn isn’t just for job searches – it’s for news.


Over the last few years, it has become clear that people are posting – and reading – more news on the platform. In fact, according to a recent Pew Research survey, nearly 20 percent of LinkedIn’s audience uses it to access news.


At Business Insider, we’re seeing this translate into a growing audience, increased referral traffic and an opportunity to interact with users who are among our most loyal and engaged.


For us, LinkedIn is part of a multi-platform (distributed) approach to content. It is no surprise given the makeup of our readership – the “next generation of business leaders” – that LinkedIn is among our top sources of social referral traffic.


Furthermore, each of our three brands, Business Insider, Tech Insider and Insider, has developed a strong presence on the platform.


Here are a few of the key reasons why Business Insider performs so well on LinkedIn...

Facebook, Instagram Are Influencers' Favorite Social Platforms - eMarketer

Facebook, Instagram Are Influencers' Favorite Social Platforms - eMarketer | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

Influencers use different social media platforms to help promote and get the word out about the brands they are working with. Nearly a third of US influencers who currently work with brands cite Facebook as being the best platform for influencer marketing, followed closely by Instagram, per July 2016 research from SheSpeaks, a female-focused engagement network, which polled 347 US influencers who have an active blog, and are active on social media.

It’s not surprising that Facebook and Instagram were considered to be among the best social media platforms for influencer marketing, especially given that most influencers use photo and video content when marketing on behalf of brands. What is surprising is that only 10% of influencers cited Pinterest, a content sharing service that’s all about images and videos. In fact, more respondents considered Twitter to be the best social media platform, and they can only use up to 140 characters within that platform to promote a brand. What’s more, Pinterest even has more users than Twitter in the US as of this year....

10 ways to increase your social media engagement like never before

10 ways to increase your social media engagement like never before | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

It’s probably one of the most frustrating parts of social media marketing — no engagement.


You post day in and day out hoping to see the social side of social media start to happen. Sometimes, a like or two will pop up, but most of the time, you hear crickets.It’s disheartening. It’s also costly. Your social media marketing can’t pay off if your audience isn’t getting excited about what you have to say.


Social media is a popular way to use direct marketing. This type of marketing allows you to connect one-on-one with your customer, speaking directly to the person who will eventually open his wallet and buy from you.


With an opportunity like this, you want to capitalize on the connection. Engagement allows you to do that.Here are 10 of my favorite ways to rise above the noise on social media and engage your audience....

How online shopping is moving away from shops: ONS - InternetRetailing

How online shopping is moving away from shops: ONS - InternetRetailing | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

Nearly half of every pound spent online in 2015 was spent with a retailer that had no shops, new analysis from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) suggests.


The ONS study, Shopping in shops that have no ‘shops’ says that in 2008, 5p in every £1 spent with retailers was spent online. By 2015 this had risen to 13p. And when people shopped online in 2015, 49% of spending – or 49p in every pound – went to retailers that had no permanent physical store.


This, says the analysis, is “not a blip – it’s actually a growing trend – up from 41p of every £1 spent in shops online in 2010.


”The report suggests while the supermarket was arguably the big retail development of the 20th century, making shopping less personal for many, the 21st century has been about shopping online – a development that some say has made shopping even less personal.


It suggests that while 88% of all UK shopping took place in physical stores in 2015, “the British public are not ready quite yet to move to an exclusively online shopping experience.”

The Cyberpower Crushes Coup

The Cyberpower Crushes Coup | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

Mere hours after the putsch in Turkey has failed, it is still too early to understand exactly what went on. Given those constraints, I still want to discuss something which has altered “the game” so much that the existing guidebook needs to be significantly revised.


I am not a military strategist, but I have lived through a couple coups in Thailand, so I have some first hand experience of what they look like. The guide book to running a coup is still Luttwak’s Coup d’État, but it needs to be revised to reflect the use of cyberpower. In the same vein, people who talk about cyberpower need to understand what it actually is (hint: it isn’t a stockpile of exploits, it’s the ability to create and maintain advantage.)


The Good Coup Guide


A coup is basically a sucker punch. The trick is to end the fight before it even begins. The members of the coup are in the minority and a long drawn out fight, even if they win, will not have the trappings of legitimacy or stability. The goal is to have a rapid attack against the existing leadership and replace them before anyone knows what happened. At the same time, the general population needs to be kept out of the way, because large groups of civilians complicate things to no end....


Via Jeff Domansky
rodrick rajive lal's insight:
I very strongly believe that Citizen Journalism along with Cyberpower ensure that the coup in Turkey failed to gain hold. The use of Cybertechnology by citizens all over the world has empowered citizens to function as journalists. Citizen journalism is a growing phenomena that leaders should take into account, as the fourth estate of all Democracies!

Members of Customer Loyalty Programs Generate Significantly More Revenue for Retailers Than Do Non-Members, Accenture Research Finds | Accenture Newsroom

Members of Customer Loyalty Programs Generate Significantly More Revenue for Retailers Than Do Non-Members, Accenture Research Finds | Accenture Newsroom | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

Members of retailers’ customer loyalty programs generate between 12 percent and 18 percent more revenue for retailers than do customers who are not members of the loyalty programs, according to new research from Accenture Interactive.
 
This key finding was based on a survey of retailers across specialty, big-box, department, drug and convenience stores in the United States. The Accenture research sought to identify key trends and challenges of retailers’ loyalty programs.
 
“Today’s customer loyalty programs are an increasingly expensive, complex and expansive business that extend beyond the marketing team into the entire organization,” said Farrell Hudzik, managing director of Accenture Interactive’s Global Loyalty and Rewards practice. “Given that loyalty program members generate significant incremental revenue compared with non-members, retail loyalty program leaders must anticipate future growth trends and capture the opportunity to differentiate in an increasingly fragmented marketplace.”...

On June 28, Brian Eno will launch a new video experience for the title track of his latest album The Ship, which was released in April. What's different about this music video is, according to Eno, it isn't really a music video at all, but rather a visual experience informed by and created with artificial intelligence.

"Just as I'm excited about the possibilities of artificial intelligence and new technologies, I'm so incredibly and numbingly bored with videos and the traditional music videos, that I just couldn't imagine wanting to do that," said Eno, on stage at Cannes Lions. "So really, this is an attempt to say, is there some other way we can do this thing?"...

The Hidden Curriculum of Work

The Hidden Curriculum of Work | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

What do you do for work? Not, what is your job title, or what’s written in your official job description? But what do you actually do?

 

It’s potentially the most important question you can ask yourself if you care about standing out, staying ahead of the change curve, and continuously elevating your performance to gain access to choice assignments and opportunities to advance.

 

This is because the value you deliver, the results you produce, and the impact you have on others come more often from the execution of unspoken intangibles that are not reflected in your title, job description, or the daily tasks and activities you’re responsible for. This severe mismatch is based on a fundamental misunderstanding of the true demands of work.

influencer marketing and ROI | Marketing Tom Fishburne

influencer marketing and ROI | Marketing Tom Fishburne | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

Influencer marketing is all the rage, but there’s not a clear understanding of what constitutes influence.

 

A few years ago, I participated in an influencer event for a consumer brand. It was an expensive affair put on by the brand’s agency. There were a few dozen “influencers” there, which, it turned out, meant a collection of people with blogs and social media followings. A photographer captured it all as a glitzy brand experience.

 

Some people blogged or shared about the event, some didn’t, and it left me wondering about the return on that investment. From the photos that were posted, it looked like a beautiful bit of marketing. From the actual impact, not so much.

 

Influencer is a designation with an almost magical glow to it. But not all influencers are created equal. Not everyone with a social media following is an influencer and not every influencer is a good fit for every brand. Brands should also be wary of those who refer to themselves as influencers. There’s a lot of snake oil in influencer marketing....

5 Things the Most Respected Leaders Do Every Day

5 Things the Most Respected Leaders Do Every Day | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

There are a number of qualities that confident, servant leaders share. 

 

1. They Admit Being Wrong

 

The conceited leader that proclaims his position and disregards differing points of view is a leader that will have few followers, mostly out of fear and intimidation. Typically, they know they're right, and they need you to know it too.

 

But truly respected servant leaders are quite secure in admitting when they're wrong and made a mistake, or don't have all the answers. 

 

And they will back down graciously when being proven wrong. To them, it's more important to find out what is right than being right.

Communicating Under Pressure: How Leaders Can Be Calm And Effective No Matter What - Forbes

Communicating Under Pressure: How Leaders Can Be Calm And Effective No Matter What - Forbes | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

Communicating under pressure is a critical leadership component learned very early on during Navy SEAL training.

Without having the ability to maintain composure, thinking clearly, gather information and make a call, you can’t succeed in combat. Which of course can lead to the worst possible outcome.

 

The same applies in business leadership situations, without death and dismemberment of course. We all know what it’s like to have the perfect response pop into our heads after an important situation or verbal exchange, too late to be of any use. And then there are those who can face all kinds of conflict and seem to know exactly what to do and say. And they do so in a calm and tactful manner. Faced with an angry customer, an uncooperative co-worker or tense negotiation, they don’t stammer or get upset. They keep their cool and glide through the situation getting what they want without breaking a sweat. These are the people who typically rise rapidly through the ranks. But great communicators are made, not born. It’s simply about having the right tools and knowledge.


Via The Learning Factor
rodrick rajive lal's insight:
One of the important tasks that a leader has to perform is being able to communicate under pressure! To stay calm in the face of difficulties is an essential skill.
