Mid to Small Companies Still Struggle With Social Media

 

First-hand experience as a digital analyst working with companies of all sizes reveal there is still a great deal of poor execution among mid to small companies when it comes to practicing social media. Strategies, tactics and community management all too often are misaligned to the realities of how best to leverage social media.

 

Several things to keep in mind to realize ROI.

 

Don’t Act Impulsively

There is a big di­fference between understanding the marketplace & knowing when to leap into the latest platform.

 

QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER:

• Is this new network a fad or does it have potential longevity?

• Does the purpose of the network align with our brand and social identity?

• Is our current or potential audience on this network?

• What content and tools do we need to successfully manage on a daily basis?

• Will we see a return on investment / energy if we join this network?

 

And remember Social media and the strategy applied is no longer just a micro-segment of marketing. Think beyond the basics and take into account your company’s general business objectives, fiscal plans and sales goals, then align your strategy to that agenda. If no metrics currently exist—be proactive!

 

Establish benchmarks, create metrics, track progress and merchandize appropriately.

 

QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER:

• Do my social goals support greater business goals?

• Are the social strategies and tactics outlined attainable?

• What is our brand voice and how do we adapt that for social?

• What resources, human and technological, do we need to flourish?

• What processes are in place to test, learn and adjust as necessary?

 

Be smart. Track, analyze and report on results to prove ongoing value and return for the company and ROI will start to become evident if social media is practiced well.

Infographic Trends | Social Media Today

Infographic Trends | Social Media Today | World's Best Infographics | Scoop.it

What are the current trends with infographics in 2014?


Infographics have always been around, but the emergence of “Big Data” has caused the display of trends and statistical correlations using “little men” and 3-D pie charts to become more popular than ever. Why? As a society we’ve become inundated with piles of alphanumeric data each day. 


Infographics takes this content and boils it down to essential, understandable visual elements. Additionally, as a content building/content marketing tactic, infographics can provide a break from “dry text,” causing users to  spend more time on the page. But as the novelty of infographics has faded, more and more bad infographics saturate the web landscape.


In order for infographics to be effective, they need to use multiple data points to tell a cohesive story or prove a theory. After some research, I found some interesting trends affecting the infographics space....

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.

Brand storytelling tactics focus on different functions of the brain related to understanding and perception. The brain processes images 60 times faster than text, and 92 percent of consumers want brands to create stories around ads. Because of this, marketers should be delivering linear content with clear narratives and using images to tell their stories.

Intriguing study reveals the secrets of successful infographics | World's Best Infographics | Scoop.it
What makes an infographic successful? As designers, we want it to achieve a balance of two main things: Did the reader get the message we wanted them to get?


...To the surprise of the researchers, bar graphs and charts did poorly. It turns out (news flash) they all kinda look the same. The most memorable images contained “human recognizable objects.” Think mundane stuff like photos or illustrations of bottles, animals and shoes, not to mention people.


Other important points:

  1. Color made a huge difference: the more, the better.
  2. Images with more clutter were highly memorable. How much more memorable? A lot.
  3. Images with lots of circles and rounded corner graphics also ranked high.
