    • HOW SOCIAL MEDIA CHANGED IN 2013
    • Biggest Social Media Changes in 2013 • • • • • • • • • • • The increase in Facebook ad spending- more companies, more dollars. og tags. which are just an em away from omg tags. (open graph tags) Facebooks improvements for advertisers and willingness to create options for businesses. Algorithm adaptations (FB, Google) we've been getting choked down in the stream on FB ... our content is consistent but likes are way down, etc. We've experimented a bit with advertising (and it DOES have a place in the overall marketing picture) but ... if it's cheaper and more effective for the brand to go elsewhere then why stay on FB? Challenges to organic growth being able to do contests, not being able to do contests, being able to do contests again. Paying to have your own fans that you already paid for see you stuff on Facebook. finding that plain text status updates are getting more likes and comments at times. people prefer images and visuals, but Facebook in particular is penalizing pages for posting them. At least right now. strategy • • • • • • • • • Twitter • • • • • Facebook Twitter's huge push into Social TV through smart acquisitions. Twitter has WAY more opportunity in TV than it has in mobile. TV ad dollars make mobile ad spend seem like chump change. Twitter advertising - Kw targeting now. So there's more intent to advertise against now. Other channels • • • • • • Adoption of short-form video by businesses Market oversaturation of tech vendors. Vine, Instragram videos, the trend towards hub/aggregation platforms like RebelMouse, Social TV is the big story this year. Hands down. And a successful Twitter IPO will underscore that. In the immediate future we've been using FB less and Pinterest and other venues more for our clients ... because of the pay to play mentality that FB has. It frankly pisses off our clients and they're heading in a different direction. Pinterest has been kinda huge. GOOG appears to have a new tier of small ad business reps. I have always had clients with Adwords accounts in the $30K - $70K/year range and, pre-2013, never got no never no mind from GOOG. Now I get weekly GOOG consultant AND dev support calls with tips to show me notso-obvious SEO info in my GA and Webmaster tools. They seem to be rewarding me not just for ad spend but for using the entire Googleverse of their tools 24 x 7. Also - and I venture it's related to this "Bind them to our Tool Universe" strategy - whatever the heck is going on with Google PLus and SEO is an area of seriously intense debate. • • • • • • • • • • More B2B companies seriously grappling with the best way to use social media. Realization that social media isn't a magic wand Setting expectations: It's not a direct sales funnel. Stop treating it like a direct response ad and start treating it like a combination of branding, customer service and audience research. Realization that it needs infrastructure and governance. And headcount. "Social CRM" from Facebook and Twitter with Custom Audiences and Lead Gen cards. Brands shifting from "hey everyone, like us!" to "hey, how come everyone is ignoring us?" the emergence of SEO-type tactics, in which the original advice to make a real connection to people is being supplanted by the necessity of playing cat-and-mouse games with selection algorithms. the ability to map and track networks and conversations is emerging as huge (scary) but valuable for marketers. legitimate struggle, which is catering to the ever continuing short attention span of those online, what I call the "Pinterest-ization." People don't want to read much, they want quick and easy...and quick and easy is what they share. So, PR people like me are having to become "graphic artists." I say that very loosely....but having to find ways to make just about everything visual. The importance of visual has always been great, obviously, but even more so now. THANK GOD for things like PicMonkey and now Canva to help those challenged, like me I just try and try again and quit trying to figure it out and test. a lot of B2B companies asking questions/considering jumping into social media. I have had some prelim discussions with a couple as potential clients and they are, frankly, in disbelief that they should have to pay for some of this stuff. I work primarily with med. sized biz and as a sub to a larger agency and the changes in the SEO stuff is pretty scary for the small biz ppl and will nearly guarantee that larger biz will continue to pay agencies who claim to be digital, but have no clue about the real SEO needs of a client. (That's a diff story, though) the whole "ZOMG TEENS AREN'T USING SOCIAL WHY ARE WE HERE?" angst. folks are becoming wise to the so called experts. Sadly, not much. Basic 101 crap is still being seen as thought leadership; we're not really any further forward with innovation than we were in 2012; buzzwords still get seen as a license to charge clients more money for shit they've already been paying for; and stats, analysis and reports are equally praised and debunked in the same breath. Or maybe I'm just cynical in the same old cycles happening every year under a different guise. none of the platforms are technically reliable. Free 3rd party apps are basically a joke, but may have some utility for small businesses. SEO is more important than ever. Building findable quality content that leads action is vital. Advertising works. The smart players wi simply apply tiny social affordances to enable action. Social is an option - and best viewed that way. If it's seen as an absolute "necessity", something is fundamentally wrong at the strategic level. Human beings are now promotional vectors of potential revenue. In other words: Social Media is an illusion of Social. Therefore, marketers who understand this will fair better in the long run.
    • WHAT STRATEGIES AND TACTICS ARE MOST EFFECTIVE NOW?
    • Stop Reacting. Move Forward. Is your brand just reacting in social media or Are you moving forward toward your marketing and sales goals? REACTIVE PROACTIVE Monitor keywords Lead conversations with your content Consumers choose conversation space You choose conversation space What are people saying? What are we influencing them to say? Whats going on with my brand? What does my target buyer already like and share? Put out fires Enhance brand perception
    • Comparing Advertising Methods Generate Demand/ Speed Sales Cycle • The most effective companies use all of these, each for its strength and to make up for the others’ weaknesses. SEARCH • Social strategies are used to increase funnel volume, awareness at the top of the funnel, and loyalty amongst existing customers. Fulfill Demand Social Raise Awareness • Search strategies are used for harvesting buying intent, at the bottom of the sales and marketing funnel.
    • Content Marketing Market Research Focus on customers Find out what they need What are their obstacles? What do they value? Strategy Audience Goals Measurement Curate Creation Design & Format Write professionally Persuade Edit Promotion Social Search Email Visibility ROI Landing page Close sales Repurpose Remarket
    • The Most Effective Types of Content Content Type • • • • Several polls of professional marketers report that some of the most effective types of content for B2B lead gen are in-person events, webinars, case studies, research reports, video, white papers and ebooks. The least effective types of content are microsites, articles on other websites, podcasts, digital magazines, and press releases. Ebooks may have a slight edge on white papers, but their style is so different- use white papers for technical and objective papers. Ebooks are longer and more readable. Ebooks are newer than white papers and less technical, so they generate more excitement. All the good content types are time-consuming and demanding in creativity and communication skills. Pros Cons Events High profile, lucrative Very time-consuming and complex Webinars No travel needed. Gets you an email. Need to pay a SME. White Papers Appear to be objective. Gets you an email. There are tons out there and people are tired of them. Ebooks More readable, still exciting. Gets you an email. WTime-consuming. writing and design expense. Video Personable, consumable. Can be retargeted on YouTube. Requires more expertise and design skill to do well. Doesn’t get you an email.
    • Success Stories & Limitations Marketing LinkedIn Strategy Search Offer Advertising on Strategy Search Results Page • LinkedIn’s biggest limitation compared to other marketing channels is that fewer people use it, they use it less often, and they spend less time on it than Google, Bing, Facebook and Twitter. • Some salespeople create new relationships or warm up and maintain existing ones. This can lead to new deals. When buyers switch companies, LinkedIn helps you stay in touch with them. You can prospect for new opportunities with Advanced People Search if you pay for even the lowest subscription level. • If you start your own Group, don’t let everyone in, or eventually your moderation time to filter out irrelevant and spammy posts will be too great.

    • MISTAKES COMPANIES MAKE IN SOCIAL MEDIA ANALYTICS- INADEQUATE, PLUS HOLDING ALL CHANNELS TO THE SAME STANDARD WITHOUT GOOD ANALYTICS NO CLEAR STRATEGYSTRATEGY WITH/WITHOUT FANS WHAT ARE THE BIGGEST MISTAKES THAT PREVENT FACEBOOK MARKETING ROI? LINKEDIN MISTAKES
    • How People Experience Facebook Marketing Strategy Search Offer Advertising on • Most people spend most of their time in the Newsfeed • Only about 1% fans go back to your actual facebook page per month. • Few fans see tabs or sapplets and interact with them, unless you use ads to send them there. • Not all fans see all your page’s posts in their newsfeed. • The average page’s posts are seen by 10-15% of its fans. This number may be closer to 1-2% for pages with millions of fans. This is why posts must be promoted with ads.

    • Steps Required for Facebook ROI • Some companies are quick to claim Facebook has no ROI, but… • Do they have adequate tracking? • Are they giving credit to the first marketing touch, not just the last? • Do they have a complete strategy for monetizing Facebook? • There are at least five ways you can accidentally sabotage your own Facebook success. This chart demonstrates the five things you need to get right to have a chance at Facebook ROI. Goal Requirements Reach the right people Are you targeting people who are good prospects for your business? What percentage of your targets are good prospects? Reach enough people What is your advertising reach? Do you have enough fans? How many potential customers are out there for you and how does that compare to your fan count? Persuade/connect Are your Facebook posts connecting with them emotionally? Are they responding with likes, comments and shares? Do you have a plan for persuading prospects? Reach repeatedly How many of your fans see your Facebook posts? You will need to be visible to 10-100 times as many people as you want to become customers. Are you getting their email addresses and reaching out? Are you using retargeting? Convert to sales Are you generating leads and following up on them? Is your sales team effective? Is your website effective? Is it easy for people to buy? From website traffic, your lead conversion rate should be at least 10-20% and your sales conversion rate should be at least 1%.

    • Profitable Facebook Strategies • Facebook profitability requires a plan. Here are several plans companies are using to achieve profits. • Some use fans and posting to fans • Some use retargeting instead of fans • Some use lead gen via content marketing and follow up with sales people. • Multiple steps, and some form of owned media (fans, email, retargeting) is required to consistently create sales.

    • FBX AND OTHER RETARGETING
    • Traffic without repetition • Even with great conversion rates like 4% ecommerce or 30% lead gen • That means 70% – 96% leave your site without doing anything • Traffic without a repeat visibility strategy is expensive + inefficient
    • Main Principles Marketing Strategy • • • • • Retargeting is owned media- meaning you own a list of people that enables you to reach them repeatedly. Other examples of owned media include mailing lists, email lists, text messaging lists and facebook fans. There is a marketing axiom that people must see an ad or marketing message multiple times before they want to buy. My clients have found that Facebook ad traffic alone doesn’t lead to sales, but when you combine it with email or retargeting, then you get the sales. Retargeting works by placing a cookie on the user’s computer. In Europe there are more regulations on privacy issues, so if you operate there, check the laws of each country in regard to cookies. You may want to cap (set a maximum) for the number of ad impressions each person will seefor example, you can say I don’t want anyone to see my ad more than five times per day.
