This has got to be one of my favorite scoop it articles that I have come across yet! It was very interesting to see how far YouTube has come along since the year 2005 when the first official video was uploaded to YouTube. The article takes you through the years and the biggest achievements that YouTube has accomplished up to this present day. It also includes interesting facts about the Social Media network that I never knew about before, got me more interested in using YouTube and creating my own channel or even subscribing to others!

Happy to see that my personal fave, Nimble, made the list.
Mike Ellsworth's comment, February 4, 2013 8:05 PM
I just let my trial of Nimble run out. Really didn't have the time to evaluate it. What do you use it for? What features do you like?
REwebCentral's comment, February 4, 2013 9:55 PM
I like the simplicity of the interface and ease of following the social streams. Google apps is getting better at showing the social stream, but if you're in sales or heavily into networking, you need the CRM aspect that Google Apps doesn't offer. There are a few things I'd change about Nimble, but so far it's the best that I've seen. I also have a slight bias because I've been playing in the real estate sandbox for the last 10 years, and the founder of Nimble was also the founder or somehow related to Goldmine, which was an early CRM in heavy use in the RE industry. Besides really liking their product, I like Nimble's story and approach to the social CRM conundrum.

Traditional CRM vs Social CRM [Infographic]

Traditional CRM vs Social CRM [Infographic] | DV8 Digital Marketing Tips and Insight | Scoop.it

What’s the difference between traditional CRM and social CRM? This is often the first question in the long and tricky process of “socialization” that many large organisations are currently experiencing.


Having listened to experts from American Airlines, IBM, VistaPrint, Peugeot, Everything Everywhere, British Gas, Expedia, Spotify and many more brands explaining their approaches to social CRM at recent Our Social Times conferences – I think we’ve got a pretty clear vision of how organisations should approach social customer engagement and the management, tools and processes they need to set in place around it.


With this in mind, we thought we’d publish an infographic to set out the key points of differentiation between traditional and social CRM. We hope it’s useful.

Infographic: Top 5 Social Media Fails of 2012 | DV8 Digital Marketing Tips and Insight | Scoop.it

Every experienced social media manager knows that social media can be unpredictable.

Sometimes you expect one kind of response from your social followers, but get something completely different instead.

As a result, we have social media campaigns that go viral in the blink of an eye and online campaigns that turn total failures (see the infographic) and even cause quite a damage to the company’s reputation.

 

But not everything is unpredictable in this life, of course, and certain conclusions can be drawn from other people’s so called social media fails.

Infographic: How Social Media Impacts Purchasing Decisions... | DV8 Digital Marketing Tips and Insight | Scoop.it

Many professionals are turning to social media as a place of trust for their purchasing decisions and it’s no different for the IT industry. IT decision makers have a highly-regarded task of ensuring they recommend the best products and services for their organizations.
LinkedIn, Forrester Consulting, and Research Now zeroed in on these professionals to see how they utilize social media, including its effects on their purchasing decisions and how they engage with social.
According to Michael Weir, Head of Category Development for the Technology Industry at LinkedIn, “It’s no surprise that [IT decision makers] are heavy users of social networks. In fact, 85% have used at least one social network for business purposes. What’s surprising is that 73% have engaged with an IT vendor on a social network – underscoring the value of the channel for IT marketers. Even more revealing is the fact that social media is now a critical source of influence across the entire decision making process, not just during the initial research phase.”

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

The 5 Types of Social Followers that Every Business Needs [INFOGRAPHIC] | DV8 Digital Marketing Tips and Insight | 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...

The eCommerce Guide to Social, Local & Mobile [Infographic] | DV8 Digital Marketing Tips and Insight | Scoop.it

SoLoMo, short for “social-local-mobile,” is essentially the addition of local information to search engine results in order to capitalize on the increasing use of mobile devices.

 

SoLoMo has also evolved to include mobile-specific offers pushed out to consumers based on their current location. If you are among the growing population that now has smart phones, you have no doubt seen and even taken advantage of these kinds of offers.

In this infographic from Monetate, learn how SoLoMo is having an overall impact on traditional eCommerce, and how consumers are using their smartphones to access social and local sites which ultimately influence purchases. It also also touches on the showrooming effect, providing retailers a guide to making the most out of SoLoMo opportunities.

The Challenge of Getting Visibility on Facebook [infographic] | DV8 Digital Marketing Tips and Insight | Scoop.it

Many face the challenge of getting visibility on Facebook in the newsfeed, especially for business pages.  And, maybe that’s why I’m hearing more and more people talking about moving over to Google+.

It’s estimated that only about 10% of the people who follow your Facebook page, actually see your content. So you’re left to spend an unreal amount of time posting pictures, videos, polls and links in the hope that your followers will see and engage with your content. Or, you can advertise your content with promoted posts and offers in an attempt to get attention in the newsfeed.

Former SEO Says Spend Money On GREAT Content Not SEO [Infographic + Marty Note] | DV8 Digital Marketing Tips and Insight | Scoop.it

"SEO “experts” are working hard to understand the tricks and techniques of optimizing search results. But you don’t need lay awake at night worrying about it. The fact is that Google is doing everything they can to find and index good content. And all you need to do is give it to them."


Could good content take over keyword advertising?

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, January 5, 2013 8:04 AM

SEO Muscle Memory
I'm a former SEO. I guess that definition applies since organic SEO was worth millions when I was a Director of Ecommerce. I spent a week in Mill Valley CA with SEO Guru Bruce Clay and know the tricks Alley's Scoop refers to and I agree. There was a time when optimization alone could win. That was a different time in important ways:

* Less noise, less competition for top listings.

* SEO "Tricks" weren't known by a large population.

* That was the way Google structured the game.

 

What Navneet Panda, Google's brilliant engineer, did in modifying Google's algorithm changed everything. Google was in danger of being flooded by social signals and User Generated Content. Not so much now. 

Social signals + the Google float, an innovation Google originally created to expand ad inventory, became a lifesaver and a heart breaker. It is or will be impossible to optimize a website into Google top listing now (or soon).

People think of Google as this monolith, the all-knowing OZ. Not so much. Google indexes pages and keywords. I was asked the other day to win a tit for tat keyword battle and it was winnable NOW in the old way. Soon, as that vertical gets more sophisticated over time (and they all do), the ability to optimize into a SEO win will disappear. 

There is the tricky rub. Muscle memory says, to the person who asked for the old kind of help, we should be able to optimize to victory. Sorry, not so much anymore. Time to learn a new dance. Time to tell great stories. Time to win hearts and minds because that is the only way to SEO now. 

I wrote about the end of one approach, something I called "small ball SEO" and the beginning of another (great stories well told on a User Generated Content rich social platform) recently:

Imagination, Money And Internet Marketing
http://scenttrail.blogspot.com/2012/12/imagination-money-and-internet-marketing.html    

 

BTW, I turned down the tit for tat SEO job. Life is way too short for such nonsense. Teams I've managed have profitably made more than $30M online with Average Order Values (AOVs) of around $60 so LOTS of transactions.


I share that stat because if you were to ask me the most important idea in creating so much value here is my answer:

DO WHAT GOOGLE TELLS YOU TO DO!

Imagery in Social Media  & How to Leverage Visual Content [infographic] | DV8 Digital Marketing Tips and Insight | Scoop.it

While the origins of social media can be traced back to the late 1970s, the medium didn’t really begin to develop until 1993, with the world wide web.

From here, we never looked back. But even as far as 2006 social media was predominately a text-based pursuit. So what’s changed since?

 

The global domination of YouTube, the rise of Pinterest and the success of Instagram has made social media an increasingly visual platform. And with good reason: users are far more likely to engage with brands who post images and video, and, subsequently, both Facebook and Twitter have taken steps to better-incorporate this content into their channels over the past twelve months.

 

This infographic takes a closer look at how the shift to a visual social world has developed, and includes six tips for brands on how to use these tools to bolster their marketing strategy.

Infographics on being creative in life and inspiration with top 29 ways to be creative on success and startup exploring and researching ideas and concept...

Marty Note

My favorite ways to stay creative are:

* Free writing.
* Drawing and painting.

* Reading (actual BOOKS not blog posts lol).
* Talking to smart friends.
* Hitting the museums especially NYC or Philly.
* Riding a bicycle (very Zen meditation for me).

* Creating thought experiments.

* Doing math in my head (I suck at it so it forces all the reserves in).

* Music especially LOUD rock or jazz (Miles especially).

* Taking pictures to support a story.

* Watching TV (Ovation, PBS and HBO best sources of inspiration).

* Working out (back when I had the energy to do that LOL).

* Playing with my crazy bengal cat Lucian.

* Shopping but only in musuem or art stores. 
* Working in public (makes me zero in and focus deeper).

* Looking at great design (effect is delayed but there).

* Changing a location (traveling).

* Used to read magazines, blogs don't seem to do it.

* Read something HARD I don't understand (all in again).

* Interview someone smarter than me.

* Curate something especially across nontraditional lines. 

* Create a contest or a game. 

* Manipulate SPEED of task (speed up or slow way down).

* Think about creative times in the past (working with Alton Pickens at Vassar).

 

Other great ways to stay creative in this infographic.
