5 ways corporate culture determines social media success - Schaefer Marketing Solutions: We Help Businesses {grow}

5 ways corporate culture determines social media success - Schaefer Marketing Solutions: We Help Businesses {grow} | The Social Media Learning Lab | Scoop.it

Social media success and failure is not usually determined by resources, vision, or ability.  It is inevitably a function of the personality of the organization.


The author covers the five signs that your company culture may be getting in the way of your progress including:

 Corporate culture mis-match — ...the realistic capabilities of your company culture.  Is your company ready to become a publisher? Are they able to react? Are they truly open to the idea of customer dialogue? 


Lack of executive engagement - To be successful in the long-term, you must have support from the top. Why? That’s who controls the purse strings and resources! That’s the person setting the strategy.

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

This post provides a window into how values (including hidden values) trumps the best of intentions as well as the "shiny toy" syndrome of social media.  Being on trend is not a successful strategy if leadership and culture will not support it.


Hidden values like

  • fear of entering into dialog / exchange with customers, 
  • avoidance-oriented management cadre (often revealed in the quality of feedback in peformance management systems), and  
  • inconsistent or vague leadership messages about what's most important in how the company meets its mission and vision

will doom any social media company initiative, or relegate it to an inconsequential minor, and low-impact role.

How to avoid the social media time suck | The Social Media Learning Lab | Scoop.it

...I have a startling confession to make: social media can suck up your time-- but only if you allow it to. 


______________________

"If you only had 3 hours a day ....if you only had 1 hour? "


______________________


Excerpts:

Take the long approach. Think bigger than you are. Just like sales forecasting or financial planning, your social media program should have some long-term goals and appropriate rewards attached. 

  “If you only had 3 hours a day to work on social media strategy and projects, what would you do?” ....if you only had 1 hour? Looking at your social media time ...time frames will push you to further refine...and focus your attention like a laser beam.

How To Create a Landing Page That Really Converts: Key Ingredients and Good Examples

How To Create a Landing Page That Really Converts: Key Ingredients and Good Examples | The Social Media Learning Lab | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article:
"If you don’t have a good landing page, it’s like going fishing without a net: you might land a big one on your hook, but you won’t be able to drag it into the boat.

You don’t want people to just visit your page. You want them to take action once they are there. So make it as easy and compelling as possible for them by including these elements found in a landing page that CONVERTS:

C = Clear Call to Action
O = Offer
N = Narrow Focus
V = VIA: Very Important Attributes
E = Effective Headline
R = Resolution-Savvy Layout
T = Tidy Visuals
S = Social Proof

CLEAR CALL TO ACTION:
Whatever it is you’ve decided will move people further along your conversion funnel. That’s what you should be asking them, clearly and temptingly, to do. Don’t distract them with lots of other requests. The best pages accentuate only one CTA.

OFFER:
An offer is anything you give your visitors in exchange for getting them to do what you want. This can mean offers in the traditional sense of coupons or discounts, but it also can mean a free trial, a free version of the product, a whitepaper, or a matching gift.

NARROW FOCUS:
Research has shown that the more choices you offer people, the longer they take to make a decision. So the clearer and simpler you make your page, the more likely you are to get someone to take the action you want.
- Do you really need that navigation bar?
- Do you really need to talk about your company philosophy?
- Do you really need to collect all that information?

VIA: VERY IMPORTANT ATTRIBUTES:
We’ve all heard stories of companies that reserved a catchy URL, put up zero information about what the site was for, and harvested 1 million email addresses before they even launched.
You should assume that’s not going to happen to your company.
Instead, you’re going to have to give visitors some good reasons they should do what you want. Those reasons are the VIA: Very Important Attributes.

EFFECTIVE HEADLINE:
People coming to your site are going to decide in a split second if they want to go back to their game of “Words with Friends” or stay and see what you are all about. A key way to keep them is to tell them in plain language what your site is all about.

RESOLUTION-SAVVY LAYOUT:
Do you know that there are people out there still surfing the web on 800 x 600 monitors?
Keep the most essential parts of your message – logo, headline, call to action, a supporting visual – in the center top of the screen, with supporting messaging lower down on the page.

TIDY VISUALS:
As with the headline, distracting elements can work when you’re trying to get attention. But when people are on your site, you don’t want to sidetrack them with a bunch of visual junk.

SOCIAL PROOF:
As social creatures, humans tend to place greater value on things that other people have already approved. That is why most sites will tend to display evidence of such social validation."

In the original article there are more information about: "Considerations for strategy", "Considerations for design", "The cautionary tale", "Doing it right" and some examples. Check out full interesting article here:

Bots Tweet, Flirt and get Political. Follow Me at #Socialbot. | The Social Media Learning Lab | Scoop.it
Socialbots are being designed to sway elections, to influence the stock market, even to flirt with people and one another

________________________


...Last month, computer scientists...revealed that Carina Santos, a much-followed journalist on Twitter, was actually not a real person but a bot that they had created. Based on the circulation of her tweets, two commonly used ranking sites, Twitalyzer and Klout, ranked Ms. Santos as having more online “influence” than Oprah Winfrey.


...During a dispute over a Russian parliamentary election in 2011, thousands of Twitter bots, created months before but largely dormant, suddenly began posting hundreds of messages a day targeting anti-Kremlin activists, aiming to drown them out, according to security analysts. Researchers say similar tactics have been used more recently by the government in Syria.


...In 2010, researchers with Truthy, the Indiana University research group, discovered a number of Twitter accounts sending out duplicate messages and re-tweeting messages from the same few accounts in a closely connected network. Two accounts, for example, sent out 20,000 similar tweets, most of them linking to, or promoting, the Web site of John A. Boehner, then the House minority leader, before the last midterm elections.

Much of the social media remains unregulated by campaign finance and transparency laws. So far, the Federal Election Commission has been reluctant to venture into this realm.

5 Social Media Tactics to Increase ROI via Mashable

5 Social Media Tactics to Increase ROI via Mashable | The Social Media Learning Lab | Scoop.it
Social can be one of the most challenging platforms for brands to measure return on investment. Companies that grew up on traditional advertising and metrics often have trouble making sense of the value of the online ecosystem. 


Excerpts:

2. Be Authentic

You can't fake it online, says Sid Shuman, who runs social media for Sony Playstation. "They can smell that a mile away."


Shuman suggests crowdsourcing content for in-house interview and articles. Because they live and breathe the brand, fans "come up with better questions that we could any day," he says.

3. Keep Content Premium

 
Hitting "publish" is social suicide if the material isn't quality. Take advantage of Wordpress,Tumblr and social media to craft strong messages.


Know the rules and follow them: Every network requires a specific approach and language (tweets are written differently thanFacebook posts). 


SEE ALSO: 8 Creative Ways to Connect With Customers on Facebook

Stick to a calendar for posting, and focus on making followers feel part of the brand's family. Using platforms solely as selling tools quickly alienates customers. Hire professionals—and fight the urge to turn sites into content farms or automate feeds.


Peter Yared, CBS Interactive's CTO/CIO suggests using your sites to curate and amplify positive content about your company. "Find the interesting content that’s being posted and use it to bring value to your audience."

5. Experiment

Nothing risked is nothing gained, especially when it comes to social. Fail and see what works. Test tone, style and new monetizing tools, such as native advertising, which serves sponsored content, tweets and Facebook stories. eMarketer reports 73% of U.S publishers now offer some form of native advertising. But be careful: This hot topic still often fails to hook users, as do most click-bait attempts.

‘The Human Brand’ Review: Our Relationships with Companies - Knowledge@Wharton

‘The Human Brand’ Review: Our Relationships with Companies - Knowledge@Wharton | The Social Media Learning Lab | Scoop.it
According to the book 'The Human Brand: How We Relate to People, Products, and Companies,' our perceptions of firms are the result of spontaneous judgments on their warmth and competence -- the same elements that drive our impressions of people.


....Prior to the industrial revolution, if a merchant did wrong by you, everyone in town knew about it by the weekend and the merchant would be under pressure to make it right or risk damaging his relationships with other customers.

Today, social networks and digital communication are bringing back that same social accountability, and companies of all kinds will need to change the way they do business, or their customers will spend time actively plotting their escape and revenge.

____________________
    
Social networks have rebalanced the power in relationships between large companies and their customers.

______________________

     

Knowledge@Wharton: And what might that revenge be?


Malone: It could be as simple as never doing business with that company again, but more likely these days, it’s launching a social media campaign to let the world know how they have been wronged and what the true intentions of that company or brand are in their opinion.


We have seen lots of examples of this in the past few years, from Bank of America’s attempt to introduce debit card fees or Verizon’s failed “convenience” fee for credit or debit card payments. Social networks have rebalanced the power in relationships between large companies and their customers.

In return, search engines have provided traffic to publishers and data on how those publishers are found. That latter part of the ‘deal’ was unilaterally pulled by Google.”""

There are many other ways you can leverage social media channels such as Facebook, Twitter and Google+ to strongly benefit your business to business relationships.


....think sideways to leverage social media if you're in a B2B organisation. .....we know that many of our target prospects don't actively use social media for buying and selling products and services, so how can we engage with people on social media?

The simple answer is you've got to think around your industry:

  • Who are your suppliers?
  • Are there any consultants that operate in your sector?
  • Do you use resellers? Are they using social media?
  • Do you think anyone would be interested in hearing your story of how you started or expanded?

"Think of it as “shoot, mix, share.  You don’t even have to do the shooting — the new MixBit site allows anyone to snip and remix any publicly shared video content."

Chad Hurley and Steve Chen are back with MixBit, a new mobile app that they hope will make it easier to shoot, edit and remix videos on the go.


On the surface, MixBit resembles two other leading video apps, Twitter’s Vine and Facebook’s Instagram.

MixBit allows 16 seconds.


But as the name suggests, MixBit is all about mixing and editing video. Both the app and a related Web site, MixBit.com, are aimed at making it easy to clip and stitch together snippets of video. Simple tools built into the app allow users to edit each 16-second clip and combine up to 256 clips into an hourlong video. The final product can then be shared on Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus or the MixBit Web site.
