  • In 1993 “The New Yorker” published a cartoon by Peter Steiner The cartoon symbolizes an understanding of  Internet privacy  that stresses the ability of users to send and receive messages in general anonymity So creating trust is vital when on the internet as you are seen as domain name or a number How do you do create trust online?

  • So what are the pieces of the puzzle that provide the full picture?

  • Another way to look at the philosophy and approach is as a Hub and Spoke Publish content at your website, blog or online store Distribute it out onto multiple social networks and media
  • Rich Multimedia is vital on the social web Produce Videos, HD Images, Podcasts, PDF’s, eBooks You will be surprised at how many media formats you can publish the same content with
  • A lot of companies are saying lets get onto Facebook, Twitter or YouTube. That is starting with tactics rather than a strategy. What are the basic steps that need to be addressed?
  • CEO and Management needs to be on board. It quite often is done without the right people buying in
  • Some questions to ask about your prospects What do they read or view? What are their problems? What social networks do they use?
  • It is important to know what you want to achieve Do you want to improve brand recognition Capture more inquiries Increase sales Which are the most important?

  • Implementing these tactics and building the web assets requires resources Money People Tools
  • Content needs to be created that communicates and tempts your audience to engage with you eBooks Videos Blog articles Facebook updates (Supre) Could also include polls, surveys and competitions
  • Creating the content is just the start, Marketing your content continuously and consistently is vital Promoting it on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn is a good place to start for B2B’s Organic social media marketing will take time so it is sometimes a good idea to use Paid Social Media marketing on Facebook or LinkedIn to be a catalyst to accelerate your marketing campaign Just like you would use Google Adwords to accelerate being found online until your organic SEO starts to produce results
  • You are not going to get your marketing right everytime so Measure and Monitor your results Tools such as Google analytics and Facebook to ensure you are moving towards your goals
  • Make changes to what is not working and Keep doing what is producing results Be patient it will take time as your build your online brand
  • http:// www.youtube.com/watch?v =ypmfs3z8esI&feature= player_embedded
  • Facebook is often not seen as a B2B marketing channel but as it has matured and its ecosystem become deeper and broader with Apps Customised landing welcome pages It is not a channel you should ignore if you are a B2B or a B2C company
  • As Facebook is such a visual platform High Definition Images and Videos are great for engagement Also Quotes that are appropriate for your industry can be very effective
  • Serious content can be mixed up with some fun videos and articles from time to time. Displays the human side of the corporation
  • http:// www.facebook.com/Cisco?sk =app_57675755167
  • Twitter with over 200 million users worldwide can be a great channel to build a tribe of followers that like to receive content in the Twitter stream
  • Brand your Twitter account Link to your website Use keywords in your description on Twitter Build followers
  • Brand your Twitter account Link to your website Use keywords in your description on Twitter Build followers
  • SocialOomph Twitter Advanced Search Twellow.com Hootsuite Tweepi.com
  • LInkedIn is a powerful B2B professional network with 120 million members. In the last 12 months its membership has doubled in Australia
  • http://fedex.linkedincreatives.com/video/01/
  • You cannot be promotional in groups on LinkedIn so content that adds value to the group is fine Example in discussions in Groups “ALLRETAIL” Retail Executive network Post Card Mania offers a “Ten Ways to Grow Your Business Using Direct Mail To receive the report you need to provide your details
  • The landing page on the link to obtain the ebook or PDF will ask for essential details that Grows your database Asks permission to continue to send updates Generate leads and sales
  • Second Largest Search Engine behind Google. According to Forrester Research http://blogs.forrester.com/interactive_marketing/2009/01/the-easiest-way.html any given video in the index stands about a 50 times better chance of appearing on the first page of results than any given text page in the index. Those are some attractive odds!
  • Slideshare is maybe the sleeper in the B2B social networking closet but with Over 50 million unique users 16 Million registered users It is powerful for spreading and embedding your content in blogs and websites. If you are in the knowledge industry then Slideshare can be a great way to share your thought leadership and expertise in a graphical format Create an account with links to your blog or website Include a description Tag it with keywords Promote presentations on Facebook, Twitter and Slideshare Embed in a blog post with an introduction of 150 to 200 words
  • If you are in the knowledge industry then Slideshare can be a great way to share your thought leadership and expertise in a graphical format Create an account with links to your blog or website Include a description Tag it with keywords Promote presentations on Facebook, Twitter and Slideshare Embed in a blog post with an introduction of 150 to 200 words
  • With over 150 million blogs they are a platform that should not be ignored Especially useful for B2B businesses Some thought that social networks and micro blogs such as twitter would sound the death knell for blogs. It appears that it is actually helping drive traffic and growth
  • Remember the Hub and Spoke approach Publish on your home base Publish on your outposts Provide multi-media formats for capturing the widest audience
  • Hubspot inspired me to start blogging 3 years ago and they are one of the best examples of how to optimise a blog for B2B marketing Some Key Features Content that needs you to eneter email etc for receiving it Subscription buttons Multimedia Share buttons Call to action
  • Watching technology weave its magic is summed up in the quote by the science fiction writer, Arthur C. Clarke. “ Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic “. Grandfather mobile story!
  • The invention and evolution of the computer in your hand, the “smart phone” that is connected to high speed broadband Internet is revolutionizing our communications and society. Facebook and Twitter apps are enabling people to take their social networks with them. The latest change to this ongoing trend is that Twitter is now embedded in the  Apple iOS5 mobile operating system  at the menu layer. Twitter has seen user acquisition  increase by 300%  since the launch.
  • Google’s search results are determined by complex algorithms designed and developed  by hundreds of clever mathematicians wearing white lab coats and calculated by computers in dark humming data centers. Google has started rolling out its “+1″  button that they are starting to indicate will be the start of the rise of  ”social signals” that will be used to determine what content is being voted on as valuable by humans rather than just machines. Google and Bing have increased the visibility and priority of social networks in search results. You may have noticed over the last 12 months that YouTube videos, Facebook pages and LinkedIn profiles and other social media are ranking higher in search results when conducting an online search.
  • The rise of FourSquare and Google “Places” has made checking in for specials in your local area a reality…. again driven by the “smart phone”. The mobile web will continue to make a major impact over the next 5 years as the worlds more than 5 billion phones become “Smart” Another part of this local social marketing trend is the new development of post code targeting capability in social media marketing on Facebook which is being rolled out in the USA.The self serve paid Facebook marketing platform is now starting to include postcodes along with the other demographic data that Facebook has in its database about you.
  • E-Commerce has been with us for nearly 15 years and is now producing a major negative impact on “bricks and mortar” stores that are not also online. It is predicted that 20% of total retail sales will be online over the next few years. Over the last 12 months technology has emerged that allows you to take your shop (via “Apps”) to the Facebook “network” so that users do not have to leave the Facebook eco-system to buy their favourite brands. In fact many of the worlds top bands and musicians have their own Facebook store on their “Fan Page” Commerce is now becoming “ Omni Commerce ”
  • Games used to be played on a field or park, around a board in the middle of a table or with a deck of cards. Gaming has been redefined with the evolution of “ Social Gaming ” enabled by rich multi-media and easy to use social networks. Zygna (which was only founded in 2007) has usurped traditional gaming companies by developing Farmville and Mafia Wars that is currently played by 230 million Facebook users every month. In 2010 Facebook and Zygna signed a 5 year agreement on the use of Facebook credits which returns 30% of all games revenues to Facebook.   Revenues will exceed $1 billion in 2012 which is achieved through the sales of “virtual” products.
  • Publishing is transforming rapidly from offline print to online platforms with the rise of global blogs that attract tens of millions of readers every month. Huffington Post which started as a political blog was recently sold to AOL for $315 million. Traffic to these these blogs are driven by social networks and the Huffington Post handles over 1 million comments every month from more than 35.6 million unique visitors. In fact in June, 2010, traffic to the Huffington Post passed the doyen of traditional media, The New York Times. Blogs on various topics from social media (Mashable) politics, food and technology  are attracting millions of global readers every month.
  • Niche industries were in the past restricted by geography, technology and the tyranny of distance. Now they are able to become multi-million dollar enterprises with the global reach of social media that is not restricted by place, time and poor logistics. Examples of this include “ AussieBum ” (sells men's underwear globally) “ AquaBumps ” (which sells digital photography around the world focusing on water, surfing and beach images). It is not only the revenue of these social network enabled businesses that surpasses the previously location bound industries but the speed at which they scale which is due to the virality of social networks including Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.
