SNEAKY PIC FROM MARK ZUCKERBURGS PRESO IN JUNE THIS YEAR the rate that fb users are sharing is increasing at an exponential rate. users are now sharing 4 billion ‘things’ on Facebook every day. sharing may be about to explode – what about twitter The question now is what people will be sharing. And what that means for marketers
Our friend circles are like our personal curators. They normally have similar values and beliefs, And we tend to trust their referrals on products and services. So if they share something with us, We’re more likely to take notice.
SHARE ONLY IF THE SUBJECT IS IMPORTANT TO THEM Give them reason to share GIVE THEM CONTENT THAT IS WORTHWHILE Help them connect with their own networks Facebook connect poses many interesting question to marketers as it means we can invite conversations that would normally be happening out there (i.e. private FB circles) can be happening on your site. While the conversation is still private to that circle, it means they’re having a deeper experience with your brand with friends.
Understand your audience intimately Know where they need help, and what you can help them with. Segment! Personalise your messages – otherwise its just shouting AND YOU’LL BE IGNORED No one likes being shouted at.
Don’t tell them what to think; give them the tools to create their own brand experience. IF ITS GOOD, They’ll tell all their friends about it when they love it
