97 Ideas for Building a Valuable Platform

97 Ideas for Building a Valuable Platform | SM | Scoop.it

The social media world changes daily. We are bombarded on all sides with interesting information, useful as also totally unnecessary. For this reason, I think the words of Chris Brogan are true, he say, things will change in 2012. For this reason we should be heading in the right direction and in the right dynamics if we wants to be successful on social media in the future. [note mg]

 

2012 is the year where social media oversaturation hits hard. We will scale back on our participation in social networks, and we will most certainly scale back who we choose to follow as sources. This won’t be because someone is bad or good. It will be based on whether the connection with that person adds value to the stream of information we’re cultivating or not.

 

In determining how to deliver value and stay relevant and visible in this new landscape, I’ve written down 97 ideas to help you build a valuable platform. Note: some of this thinking comes from writing a new book with Julien Smith that isn’t out until Fall 2012. Want some up front hints? Read this post...

Inbound Marketing & SEO – Seize Opportunity or Resist Change

Inbound Marketing & SEO – Seize Opportunity or Resist Change | SM | Scoop.it

With a little help from the experts, Andy Betts  -  http://bit.ly/FR3FlU - digs deeper into SEO and its convergence with social media, content marketing, and other inbound marketing techniques to come up with ideas, questions, and tips that may offer solutions to overhyped problems.

 

Much has been written lately about SEO and its convergence with social media, content marketing, and other inbound marketing techniques. While many people in the SEO field embrace the convergence of social, content, and inbound marketing strategies others remain resistant to change and convergence.

 

Change is something that search, digital, and in-house marketing departments need to adapt to quickly. Clients seek solutions on how to integrate SEO, social media, and content marketing.

 

Structuring the way we present our products and services, our talent, and adapting to a more holistic way of thinking is how we help them do this.


Seize Opportunity – Don’t Resist Change
As marketers we spend lots of time talking about user behavior, buying personas, and the psychology of sharing related to our products and services, such as the psychology of sharing and the psychology of link building, social influence, audience segmentation and remarketing.

 

Two different sides, or hemispheres, of the brain are responsible for different ways of thinking and as soon as we look into the difference between the left and right brain hemispheres it clearly becomes apparent why some people are more technically driven than others and why so much conflict and debate surrounds topics such as inbound media, SEO, and social media.

 

To put is simply and go back to basics - left-brain marketers who tend to be analytical collide with right-brained marketers who think holistically and are more open to conceptual thinking.

 

Ring any bells?

The winners in this industry are the people who sit in the middle and can adapt and balance left and right brain thinking. They use technology to diffuse creativity and create concepts that become measurable.

 

Build Your Own Converged Media Mind
The converged media mind utilizes both the left and right part of the brain and applies this thinking to the appropriate channel with the appropriate metric.

 

From this you can build the right relationships with your peers (counterparts) and share the right skills to engage with the right audience via the right channel and via the right medium.

52 Questions To Ask When Hiring A Social Media Company

52 Questions To Ask When Hiring A Social Media Company | SM | Scoop.it

As a specialist in social media you should be able to answer these 52 questions ... and if you are looking for a company that will take care of your social media, you should ask them... there's a lot of work ahead! [note mg]

 

Confession time: I have a really hard time getting started. There’s just something about those awkward first steps that makes me delay projects as long as I possibly can. For example, last month I finally fixed the check engine light in my car so that I could get it inspected. It was actually pretty excited since the light had been on since October.

 

Of 2008. I wish I was kidding.

 

It’s not that I’m irresponsible, that I don’t value my safety or even that I didn’t know I was potentially creating a bigger problem – it’s that taking the first step and committing to something is scary. And it’s especially scary if you don’t know where to start. Because the not knowing makes you feel dumb. And no one likes to feel dumb.

10 Effective Ways To Use Social Media

10 Effective Ways To Use Social Media | SM | Scoop.it

Social Media doesn’t have to be just about status updates, mobile check-ins and what you’re having for lunch. It’s definitely much more than the number of Fans or Followers you have.

1. Collaboration

2. Customer Care

3. Product Research
4. Monitoring the Market

5. Build Authority

6. Events

7. Product Demos

Writing the perfect pitch and crafting a compelling bio is difficult. That’s why whole industries exist to enable us to tell our stories better. Copywriters, creative directors and brand strategists like me wouldn’t exist if it was easy to articulate the essence of what we do, and communicate how and why we do it.

 

There’s no way around it, you need to spend some serious time and energy on your about page, because it’s probably one of the most visited pages on your website.

Social vs Search #Infographic

Social vs Search #Infographic | SM | Scoop.it
While there are many differences between search marketing and social media, and each has its strengths, both are essential in marketing today. Interestingly, they take on exponentially more power when marketers use them together.

 

To identify what works best for particular goals, MDG Advertising - http://bit.ly/GDbvlC - created this enlightening Infographic that distinguishes the digital supremacy between social media and search marketing, as well as the collective strength of this dynamic duo.

 

Take a look at how these two online methods measure up on their own and in sync.

 

When comparing search marketing vs. social media, search is more effective for some online objectives while social is the hands-down choice for others. For example, lead generation is better achieved through the high-visibility, low-cost methods of search marketing.

This appears to be the consensus among both B2C and B2B marketers.

 

Building brand awareness involves a completely different marketing approach that makes increasing exposure the primary mission. Most marketers agree that social media is superior to search marketing for these scenarios.


When it comes to maximizing the visibility of local businesses, twice as many consumers rely on search engines. This statistic holds true for all kinds of local businesses, from professional service companies to establishments such as restaurants and bars.


Finally, most marketers prefer social media over search marketing when the goal is interactivity. Social media nurtures an ongoing online dialogue and creates a genuine sense of connection that simply cannot be achieved by search alone.

 

Today, marketers are realizing that combining these digital dynamos can lead to the greatest results of all. Our increasingly digital world is blurring the lines between social and search, with social networks adding search features, and search engines launching social components.

 

The Web has gotten wise to their mutual power and now marketers are following suit for success.
