I selected this article from Curatti written by Ian Naylor because it explains how to develop a strong social media strategy that works for your business.

 

It's important to build solid objectives in order to be successful in social media marketing.

 

Common Social Media Mistakes

 

While you can create a social media account and begin tweeting or posting this will not guarantee solid growth. I agree that it takes focus and dedication to get real results.

 

Naylor explains what to avoid and how to properly grow your social brand.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Avoid spreading yourself too thin on too many networks. Focus on one and then move up from there. It takes time and dedication to develop your community.

 

  • Include the human touch in your accounts rather than just relying on automation or standard content. When people see the same messages they become bored quickly and move on.

 

  • It's important to include video as a part of your marketing strategy. People are especially drawn to this medium -- especially live stream broadcasts.

Do you invite comments on your Facebook page? When your followers leave comments on your Facebook page, do you reply? Do you participate in discussions with your fans on your Twitter account? If not, then you are missing out on a tremendous opportunity to build goodwill.

Building Your LinkedIn Network

Building Your LinkedIn Network | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it

LinkedIn is certainly the best social media platform for the business contacts and network. To be in harmony, it’s important to respect few rules and good sense. This post will give some information about that. [note Martin Gysler]

 

In his book Ultimate Guide to LinkedIn for Business, author Ted Prodromou describes how to best to leverage the networking site as a business tool. In this edited excerpt, the author details the two methods of building connections on LinkedIn.

 

How many connections should you have on LinkedIn? I'm asked that question frequently, and there isn't a magic number that works for everyone. LinkedIn isn't a popularity contest where the person with the most connections wins. LinkedIn is about building relationships and connecting with others, which is very different than the monologue communication of Twitter.

How LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter Have Changed the ROI of Leadership - Forbes

How LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter Have Changed the ROI of Leadership - Forbes | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it

"Linkedin, Facebook and Twitter have changed the ROI on leadership and it’s your responsibility to get in the game."

 

Excerpts:

 

As a former C-level exec, I was skeptical myself, but now I’m a believer. Linkedin, Facebook and Twitter have changed the ROI on leadership and it’s your responsibility to get in the game.

 

About a year ago, the head of marketing for a healthcare company told me, “our leaders are not paid to write and express their POV outside their immediate roles & responsibilities. Besides, many of them don’t write well and would tarnish their image if they tried.”

 

I responded  ...many of your smaller competitors have invested in activating the voices of their senior executives by training them how to blog and also how to utilize social media to expand their reach and influence.”

 

This prediction recently became a reality and not only has the head of marketing been fired, but the company has had to hire new talent that understands how to implement the power of social media.
