  • Take advantage from the statistics to determine which type of content, distribution techniques and timing drives most likely probably the most leads and engagement. In order to accomplish that you must have a skill to produce a content strategy that might be constantly tweaked to operate at the optimum level.First you should be aware of it from the clients and influencers to begin getting a perception of the type of information they are trying to find online. You need to then overlap the data with content distribution platforms: blogs, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, Google + User Forums, etc. Within the first 3 weeks from the content execution you need to produce several types of content: text, audio and video and distribute them at different channels at different occasions.http://www.flickr.com/photos/rustumlongpig/4029147039/
  • Before you do anything, identify your target personas. What is their role? What are their goals? What do they care about? What is stopping them? Where do they hang out?
  • Just as at a cocktail party, listen to the conversation before joining it to make sure it is the right place for you.
  • Create a methodology. Weave your message with the customer need to create valuable engagement.
  • Message alignment +engagement = sales conversion
  • Once you have segmented your connections, Create an editorial calendar that is visual heavy based on those circles and the type of content they would like to engage with. we all know Google loves fresh content. Updating your Google+ profile with new content daily is necessary to sustain and increase your profile’s visibility in the search engine rankings. In order to stay connected and front-of-mind, we recommend posting 2 to 3 times a day to each group.
  • Match capabilities to needs in order to find effective solutions for your potential customers
