Online and Offline Networking Tips | Matt Massaro | Positive Curating | Scoop.it

This is an article I wrote in July from my Online and Offline networking experience. Let me know what you think in the comments! 

 

Online Networking and Offline Networking play a huge role in today’s society for business and employment. The old cliche saying “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know” plays its part, being valid with this subject. Different age groups approach these two in different ways but the ones who indulge into both fair a lot better. The power of networking can create solid relationships (and leads) with people for years to come. We are going to explore a little bit of the tools used or that can be used to help with both.........

Sell Digital Products Straight From Your Folders: Sellbox Turns Dropbox Into an Ecommerce Platform

Sell Digital Products Straight From Your Folders: Sellbox Turns Dropbox Into an Ecommerce Platform | Positive Curating | Scoop.it

"Several startups tackling one-click online selling, letting users sell content with a link rather than a storefront. Based in Poznań, Poland, Sellbox is giving people a way to monetize the content in their Dropbox folder.

 

The company lets users set a price for Dropbox files, share a link to those files with their social networks, and process payments through PayPal. Founded in February 2012 and launched earlier this month, Sellbox is looking to become the go-to place for people looking to sell their online content.

 

The idea is simple – Sellbox turns Dropbox into an ecommerce platform. After connecting their Dropbox account, users select the files they want to sell, then set a file name and price. Sellers can share their files on Twitter or Facebook or via a shortened link, and buyers can pay for the files via PayPal. When a file is sold, the seller gets 91 percent of the sale and Sellbox keeps the remaining nine percent."

Is Influence Moving Prospects From Likes To Buys? [Infographic]

Is Influence Moving Prospects From Likes To Buys? [Infographic] | Positive Curating | Scoop.it

This piece is from Socialmouths, here are some interesting findings from Coupon Cabin's infographic:

 

Jan Gordon:

 

Nothing is written in stone, the research says younger people are more inclined to follow recommendations about products or services from their friends than people over 55. I personally think that is changing as social communities evolve.

 

Excerpt:

 

"we keep trying to close the gap between discovery and recommendation through Social Media and actual sales. 

 

**Are Likes eventually turning into Buys?

 

Here's one highlight that caught my attention:

 

 The reason social media users are following brands divided by gender –

 

**The study by Burst Media says the #1 reason is to keep up with content. In my opinion, people follow a brand to get something in exchange, a discount or special deals. I might check out a brand to learn something about it but that doesn’t mean I will “follow” that brand.

 

18% of social media are influenced by friends behavior – This is what we have talking about to small business, look at social media as a discovery and recommendation engine. This is the core of Earned Media.

 

**People are influenced by their friends much more than by any advertising.


**The “Age Factor” –

 

**Individuals under 35 are more likely to be influenced by their friends behavior than a 55 year-old

 

**There are a lot of elements to play with here but it’s basically just human nature, younger people rely more on others opinions than a 55 year-old.

 

**Which doesn’t mean you should ignore this, it is very important that you consider these things when approaching your audience.
