  • http://www.mzinga.com/a/pdf/mzingawp-socialmedia_marketers.pdfBlogs provide a mechanism for members to share their thoughts and ideas while also  following the blogs of experts and thought leaders.  The conversational nature and flexibility  of blogs make them ideal for communicating with your customers and prospects, while also  allowing them a channel to provide feedback to you via commenting.     Discussion forums – Forums enable sharing of multiple perspectives on specific topics,  better connecting members both in terms of ideas and personal relationships.  Helping  foster tighter personal relationships means greater participation and engagement.  Forums  are also the “grandfather of social media,” having been in use for decades, and provide a  familiar jumping off point for many new membersVideo and audio sharing – If forums are the grandfather of social media, then podcasts and  video are the “new kids on the block.”  They provide a compelling alternative to text‐based  content and can add a new dimension to your community initiative.  They do, however,  require an additional level of oversight and moderation.  Adding audio and video content  can be a critical component to some marketing community initiatives.   Idea management – This application gives your customers and prospects a voice in your  innovation process.  With simple idea creation, total transparency, and straightforward  voting mechanisms, idea management streamlines innovation and gives you immediate  feedback on your initiatives.      Social profiles – Social profiles provide a way for members to connect socially as well as  professionally, enabling new members to locate expertise within the community. Social  profiles also provide visibility into member challenges, giving your company insights into  potential pitfalls and opportunities before they arise.  As with Facebook, advanced social  profiles allow members to post on each other’s “walls,” update their status, and chat with  one another, creating a more cohesive and personal community experience.     Ratings and rankings – Ratings and rankings are designed to enable members to provide  feedback to other members within the community.  It’s also useful to have member rankings  (and status) corresponding to each member’s level of activity in the community, creating a  hierarchy of membership based on the criteria that’s important to the sponsoring company.     Shared file repository – It’s often necessary to share product documentation and other files  in online communities.  The shared file repository is built to support this requirement. The file library is critical for communities built to support discrete events where presentations,  transcripts, and documentation are an important component of success.    Event chat – This application is designed to provide a way for community members to ask  questions and receive answers from an industry expert or luminary.  The event chat provides  multiple layers of filters and reviews to manage the high volume of questions that typically  flow in during live events.  Event chat is also a fantastic way to gauge member  interest/sentiment around a certain topic.

      Social Media and Blog Marketing Process!
    • 28.
      • A blog (a contraction of the term "web log") is a type of website, usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order.
      • Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject; others function as more personal online diaries. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, Web pages, and other media related to its topic. The ability for readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs.

      Products
      Target Market
    • 53. Goals
      The major outcome of strategic road-mapping and strategic planning, after gathering all necessary information, is the setting of goals for the organization based on its vision and mission statement. A goal is a long-range aim for a specific period. It must be specific and realistic. Long-range goals set through strategic planning are translated into activities that will ensure reaching the goal through operational planning.
    • 54. Corporate Vision
      Corporate vision is a short, succinct, and inspiring statement of what the organization intends to become and to achieve at some point in the future, often stated in competitive terms. Vision refers to the category of intentions that are broad, all-inclusive and forward-thinking.  It is the image that a business must have of its goals before it sets out to reach them. It describes aspirations for the future, without specifying the means that will be used to achieve those desired ends.
    • 55. Mission Statement
      A mission statement is an organization's vision translated into written form. It makes concrete the leader's view of the direction and purpose of the organization. For many corporate leaders it is a vital element in any attempt to motivate employees and to give them a sense of priorities.
    • 56. Content Planning
      The ultimate outcome of your blog. What’s the reason your blog exist? Are you building a list, get prospects for your consulting practice, or build loyal followers and traffic to increase the value of the virtual real estate of your blog?
      The needs of your audience. Most of us guess, but rarely we are correct about it. You can gain insights into this by walking in their shoes, researching on public forums or asking them.
      Meet the needs with the outcome. This allows you to target the right audience while reaching your purpose at the same time.
    • 57. Content Planning
      Brainstorm: Come up with 3 topics that your potential customers would be interested in.
      • How to get 1,000 Twitter Followers in a week!
      • 58. How much time do I have to spend on my Social Media Profiles!
      • 59. How to make money with my blog!
    • Make Your Blog Interesting!
      Brainstorm: Create a content plan and try to update your blog weekly.
      • Topics can be related to the seasons! (summer, winter (wellness, health, restaurants)
      • 60. Topics can be related to holidays! (labor day – places to stay, to see, etc.)
      • 61. Topics can point out the benefits of your products or services!
      • 62. Topics can point out the importance of your products or services!

      Blogger is a free blog publishing tool from Google for easily sharing your thoughts. A blog is a personal diary. A daily pulpit. A collaborative space. A political soapbox. A breaking-news outlet. A collection of links. Your own private thoughts. Memos to the world.
      Your blog is whatever you want it to be. There are millions of them, in all shapes and sizes, and there are no real rules. Blogger was started by a tiny company in San Francisco called Pyra Labs in August of 1999. This was in the midst of the dot-com boom.

      You probably know a ton about your favorite bloggers - what they think about the subjects they write about, maybe some of their work and life history... you may even know what toothpaste they use. But how much do you know about all the other people who read their blogs? For all this talk of a global conversation throughout the blogosphere, there's a lot to be desired. Readers can become friends with other people who read your favorite blogs. See what else they're reading. Check out their MySpace and Friendster profiles and view their Flickrphotostreams. Authors can learn more about their readers individually and as a group. What do they like and what are they ignoring?

    • 78. Where Content is King…
      Blogging is all about….
      Content Delivery – putting it out there
      Content Visibility – letting some people see it
      Content Virality – broadcasting it to EVERYONE!
    • 79. How to blog!
      ?
    • 80. Update frequently –
      Look, nothing is worse than having a great blog and then abandoning it. You lose momentum, any buzz you might have generated and most importantly, you lose readers.
    • 81.
    • 82. Link to your social media profiles, integrate your facebook, twitter and linkedin profiles. Also add your blog to your linkedin, twitter or facebook profile.
    • 83.
    • 84.
    • 85.
    • 86. Be controversial – There’s nothing like a little controversy to help promote your site. Take a stand on a controversial issue, and then write intelligently about it.
    • 87.
    • 88.
    • 89. Include images – We live in a society of over stimulation. We’ve got flashing billboards, instant information at our fingertips, and about 15 different forms of media on our phones.
    • 90.
    • 91. Link to other sites – This one is pretty simple, the more you link to other blogs or sites, the more likely they will be to link back to you.
    • 92. Be original and make unsexy topics sexy – As we talked about in point 2, there are a ton of blogs out there. Take a different angle. Do something to set yourself apart from the mass of other blogs. Be original.
    • 93.
    • 94. Grab them with the headline – Just like a newspaper, the headlines are critical. If it’s interesting, people will check out your post. If it’s not, they’ll ignore it. It’s as simple as that. And, just like in newspapers, there are some words and phrases that are attention grabbers. “Top 10…”, “How To…”, “Warning:”,
    • 95.
    • 96. Tell people – So you’ve got a great blog post. Now what? The last rule for blogging is to tell people about it. Mention it to your friends and family, ping sites such as pingomatic.com, and submit it to social sites such as digg.com, reddit.com, fark.com, or any other appropriate site.
