  17. 17. The World According to Facebook• “People are increasingly relying on their friends to learn about brands, make purchase decisions and engage with brands in social situations,” a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement. “These conversations about brands are happening in social channels all the time. To make sure your brand is guiding that conversation and taking advantage of the opportunity to deepen relationships with your customers, you must build a connected brand.”• Mark Zuckerberg: “A squirrel dying in your front yard may be more relevant to your interests now than people dying in Africa.”
  18. 18. New Timeline – Better?• Eye movement study of 6 leading brands, according to SimpleUsability – Many of the new features going unnoticed or being misunderstood. – "The average user doesnt fully understand the new layout, or interact with it in the way intended," said Guy Redwood, managing director of SimpleUsability.• Users liked the "About" button on brand pages: in many cases, easier to learn about a brand than it was on a corporate Web site.• Pages can "pin" a post to the top of their Timeline for 7 days. Few brands are using the pin feature and, when they do, they have little impact on users.
  19. 19. New Timeline – Better?
  20. 20. Linked – who - whaa?• Your LinkedIn profile is your second- most important web identity (after your website). – Everything else is a distant third.• LinkedIn is about relationship building. It is not a sales tool; it is a lead generation tool.
  21. 21. LinkedIn Step-by-Step• Create a complete profile – Create a unique profile name• Request 5 recommendations• Give 5 recommendations• Join 5 groups• Reach out to all your contacts• Link to the relevant contacts from your contacts’ networks• Add value by posting interesting information, updates, book reviews, etc• To (cross-post) tweets or not to tweet? NOT!! Different mediums require different messages• “Stalk your Stalkers” – Check weekly to see who has viewed your profile and if interested, invite them to connect• View your contacts’ slide presentations and give them feedback• Generate 3 new prospects from your current contacts or invite desired prospects to connect
  22. 22. LinkedIn CRM• Both LinkedIn and Facebook are under tremendous pressure to grow revenue to support their high valuations• Providing cloud-based business applications is a high priorty for both companies• Expect to see more and more fee-based apps and features that attempt to replace traditional software-based programs like email and contact management• LinkedIn has many contact management features that are worth understanding and using

  24. 24. The Network Effect
  25. 25. LinkedIn - Outlook
  26. 26. Closing Thoughts• Money is replaceable• Time is not – you can never get this moment back• Attention is scarce, and more demands are being placed on our time and attention than ever – For instance, do you check your email first thing in the morning before doing anything else? At night before bed?• Multi-tasking is a myth – it is really serial tasking – The mind tires when being asked to switch between different tasks frequently throughout the day• Social media marketing holds great promise, but don’t let it distract you from your day job (unless it is your day job!)• Social media is only one leg of a “10x10” marketing plan and, most likely, is not the most important strategy to execute.
