Why the Future of Digital Marketing Is Pure PR | Marketing Profs

Why the Future of Digital Marketing Is Pure PR | Marketing Profs | news on the web | Scoop.it

Public Relations - Savvy digital marketers who use the methodologies of public relations in a sustained and strategic manner across the board can reap a potential world of benefits.

 

I'm of the opinion that although SEO is here to stay, its evolution will lean toward the more traditional practice of public relations (PR) in the coming years. In this article I'll try to…

- Back up this claim by looking at industry statistics

- Put forward a case as to why PR can be highly complementary to SEO

- And, above all, offer some suggestions about how marketers can capitalize on this trend....

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, April 26, 2014 1:10 AM

The quantum of information that is being exchanged on the internet is absolutely mind-boggling! I wonder how much information the individual human mind can process. Soon, even the human mind will have to concede defeat with respect to its ability to process all this information. Does it mark the end of one era and the start of another?

AffiliateMarketHelp's curator insight, April 27, 2014 9:49 PM

So what does this mean for an affiliate marketer?  Do you realize just how much potential for exposure this represents?  Look at all the events transpiring in 'a moment's time'.....awesome, isn't it?

 

This is also an excellent example showing how very important it is to build a targeted list for your particular niche of choice (or several areas if you are so inclined).  Each area must be treated as a unique entity to allow proper attention.  

 

Affiliate marketing is a vast 'realm'; with tools such as those found on my website http://affiliatemarkethelp.com, you can make sure you are doing your utmost to claim and cultivate your "stakehold'.

A Beginner’s Guide to LinkedIn Showcase Pages

A Beginner’s Guide to LinkedIn Showcase Pages | news on the web | Scoop.it

Learn how to use LinkedIn Showcase Pages to generate leads.

 

Having more than one buyer persona is a balancing act. If they're very different, you may feel like you're constantly in danger of not giving one enough attention, or confusing your personas with untargeted content. Add the problem of keeping all your content grouped together on one social media page, and you're really lost. 

 

Some brands have found a way to fix this issue on LinkedIn, specifically, by creating something called Showcase Pages. Let's take Gap as an example -- they've got a page for Old Navy, Banana Republic, Gap, and Gap Inc. But those pages aren't all connected or centralized around Gap Inc. Showcase Pages, however, fix this problem....

4 Things to Remember When Creating B2B Social Media Marketing Content

4 Things to Remember When Creating B2B Social Media Marketing Content | news on the web | Scoop.it

Even though social media marketing is categorized as a form of marketing that promotes the content you publish, it should not look like traditional marketing messages, even if you’re a B2B (business to business).


Too many brands make the mistake of focusing their social media marketing content on selling their products or services because they don’t think they can be creative or make personal connections. However, even an inherently “boring” business can create compelling social media content that doesn’t focus on pushing out sales messages.


Instead, make sure your social media efforts are about fostering a community of passionate customers through genuine conversations. Here are four things to remember when creating your social media marketing content:

6 Myths of Social Sharing (infographic) | news on the web | Scoop.it

Social sharing buttons on websites account for less than 30 percent of all sharing, and links shared on Thursday get peak engagement and the longest-lasting traffic.

Those are only two of the results of a RadiumOne study focusing on sharing behavior. RadiumOne is an enterprise advertising platform that operates the Po.st social sharing and URL-shortening platform — which naturally generates a lot of data on what people share, how they share, and what kind of sharing is the most effective.

A Scientific Guide To Maximizing Your Impact On Twitter, Facebook, And Other Digital Media

A Scientific Guide To Maximizing Your Impact On Twitter, Facebook, And Other Digital Media | news on the web | Scoop.it

We’re pretty keen on optimal timing for social media here at Buffer, and I figured it was high time I collected all the information we have about online communication into one place. I’ve collected research and stats on Twitter, Facebook, email and blogging to help you find the best time to communicate with others in each format.

 

The tricky thing I’ve come across is that since the Web is still so new, a lot of the research available to us is conflicting. We really need more time and more studies to get definitive answers about what works best, and the fact that our audience members are constantly changing their own activity patterns makes it even harder to work out for sure. Looking at the latest social media stats seems to only confirm that.

So my suggestion would be to use this guide as just that--a guide to help you work out what to test for in your own audience, so that you can see what actually works best in your specific case....
