Presented by Kevin Mullett, Director of Product Development at Cirrus ABS, for the Fort Wayne Chamber's Social Media Summit.

Like it or not, Google is forcing this Google+ social network on us. While

businesses and individuals seem to be pushing back, I ask if maybe we should

not be looking a gift horse in the mouth. Google+ is filled with useful tools

we can use that are not normally free. Maybe we can justify usage in the

services we find.

  • // Social Media Summit #SMSFW – GOOGLE+ RE-THINKING THE WHYIf I can’t get you to consider it as a social network, maybe you will find the tools worth using.Photo by: Hans Gerwitz – fail stamp
  • // Social Media Summit #SMSFW – Social media isn’t as much about the tools you use or the online community you join, but about the story you tell and presence you make. Creating a clean online presence is all about remembering some simple concepts.Photo by: Hans Gerwitz – fail stamp
  • // Social Media Summit #SMSFW – CAN I FIND YOU?Relationships are Not About The Tools.Social media and online marketing isn’t as much about the tools you use or the online community you join, but about the story you tell and presence you make. If I can’t find you, I can’t hear or share your story and I certainly can’t start building a relationship.Consider how it seems almost every network has someone that is making it work for them.
  • // Social Media Summit #SMSFW – HYPE & HYSTERIAThere is a lot of misinformation, speculation, opinion and hype being spread about online marketing. Worse is the expectation that social media should be free, effortless, and easy, yet produce greater ROI.And marketers are great at coming up with new terms like inbound marketing, content marketing, earned media, permission marketing, or they will say things like SEO is dead and other such nonsense to try and change the story.
  • // Social Media Summit #SMSFW – FREE TO USE, NOT DOWhile social media is free to use, it is not free to do. Weigh time and attention against opportunity and return.
  • // Social Media Summit #SMSFW – BUDGET & STRATEGYWinning requires knowledge: To win against your competitors in the search optimization game requires some knowledge, unless your competition isn’t trying. It’s easy to win if there is no competition. To win requires an understanding of the rules so you don’t get disqualified. You can be the best driver, but if you are stuck in the back of the pack you will not have a chance to show it. Optimization is part of the race regardless if you have the knowledge or not. Of course you need to decide early on how much winning is worth and what your budget is to go after it. And like most things if you don’t have a strategy, well, we all know how that goes.At this very race a competitor was disqualified for getting a bit too creative with the rules. This is analogous to black hat search optimization techniques.
  • // Social Media Summit #SMSFW – Get your house in order first!Go to getlisted.org and complete that task. Keep name, address, phone consistent!
  • // Social Media Summit #SMSFW – THE “SOCIAL THREE”You are here to find out how to add social media into your event marketing mix, but let’s start by actually talking about what I call the “social three”. Why? Because people use these terms interchangeably, when they are not in fact interchangeable. If you think about it we could just remove the “social” moniker off all of these and we would have good old fashion traditional media, networking, and marketing methods. Today we will discuss various aspects of the social sphere and social media optimization. Now the information I present today, much like search engine optimization information, will have a limited shelf life. A scant 7 years ago Facebook was created in a dorm room and now has more users than the population of the United States. A year ago many of you had no idea what Twitter was, now it has gone mainstream and is in countless TV commercials. I could waste the entirety of this seminar just talking about the rise and fall of various social services, percentage of market share, types of people who use each, etc. Instead I am going to breeze by some of those items at a high level, so I can spend more time giving you social marketing tips that will help your business.» social media which represents the tools we use for building followers, friendships, & contacts. Tools like twitter, facebook, linkedin, youtube, friendfeed, Buzz, foursquare, ning, to name only a fraction of the available services. Each have strengths and weaknesses and each need to be evaluated so we can put our time into the ones that will reap the largest ROI. I have both online and offline media tools represented because they are all just visibility tools.» social networking is the day to day interaction we have with contacts built using the various social media tools/services, in other words the “social” part. It is no different then when you attend a party, that you might otherwise pass on, in order to touch base with clients or potential clients. Now some might also toss in social networks, but let’s not make things confusing. Each tool has the potential to reach a percentage of your ideal market segment, group, individuals, or demographic. This is also to extend and optimize your circle of influence.» social marketing is the subtle, or not so subtle, use of one or more online tool to promote your business to the network you have established. Again no different than reminding those people you meet at parties, “hey I build killer websites, you should have me do one for you”. Over simplified? Maybe, but the real reason we’re here is to learn how to put this all into motion. We want to avoid the Me Monster. (me monster by Brian Regan)
  • // Social Media Summit #SMSFW – There are NO Silver BulletsNo marketing media channel has 100% eyeballs or is 100% effective. We need to prioritize based on goals, resources, and business objectives.
  • // Social Media Summit #SMSFW – It is not all about the numbers!I could regale you with all the demographics, numbers, and stats of Google+ but it wouldn’t, and probably shouldn’t, matter.https://plus.google.com/114259566451209869276/posts/ZNrsoqPWRA2
  • // Social Media Summit #SMSFW – It is NOT FacebookNo, it’s not Facebook and while your friends may not be on Google+ potential connections are.
  • // Social Media Summit #SMSFW – What do your customers prefer?Social media isn’t about what you prefer, but rather where your ideal audience is listening and can be engaged.

  • // Social Media Summit #SMSFW – THE PRIVACY EXCUSEBut…my privacy! formerly found on street corners are you really all that invisible who did we do business with 30-40 years ago? distribution does not equal visibility
  • // Social Media Summit #SMSFW – THE PRIVACY EXCUSE PART IIWe give up privacy for opportunity or gain in other ways more frequently than we might realize. surveys on the back of receipts for a cheeseburger your habits tracked and targeted, for rewards
  • // Social Media Summit #SMSFW – DO YOU SEE THE VALUE?Social media works best when you are a willing participant, see value, & treat it like a lifestyle, instead of a task.At the end of the day if you really don’t see and believe in the value, you will not be convinced to participate at a level that is likely to yield results. Social media works best when you are a willing participant, see value, & treat it like a lifestyle, instead of a task.Sometimes people try social media out, as if it isn’t known to work, and quite because they see no return. If they were to be honest, they might see that the effort put in was not sufficient to see those results.

  • // Social Media Summit #SMSFW – You can tag people, much like other platforms, but Picasa is especially good at it.
  • // Social Media Summit #SMSFW – GOOGLE+ EVENTS BECAUSE A CLICK IS NOT A BLOOD OATHGoogle+ events are easy and cheap, but you sacrifice real thoughtful signups, info gathering, and at times a commitment to come. What about people who are not on Google+?Should not replace on site events. Think promotional tool. No formal signup No info gathering Less commitment G+ users only Lost traffic & SEO
  • // Social Media Summit #SMSFW – KEEP YOUR TRAFFIC, SEO & VISIBILITY!Embed signup capability via services like eventbriteClients often talk about how hard it is to find things to blog or post news about when in reality they are letting things they are already doing go un-optimized. Don’t give away traffic, search engine optimization and brand visibility to third party sites.

  • // Social Media Summit #SMSFW – CHECK YOUR DEMOGRAPHICS AND STATSWe need to look to other criteria to judge the success or failure of our efforts.

We can use tools like I could go on for a solid half hour or more on the various tools and methods for measurement. The point I want to drive home is to make sure we are measuring the right things.What are good metrics for social media success? To name just a few: influence, traffic, reputation and brand management, visibility, engagement, competitive intelligence garnered, and of course revenue. Let’s not forget revenue!
