  • What is social media marketing?
    Using quality, fresh content in the form of articles, blog posts, video and audio to engage users.
    Marketing has changed from one-way “force-feeding” (commercials, ads) to “inviting” conversations with users that happen predominantly online.
    Users determine where the conversations take place, not the marketers.

  • Getting Started in Social Media
    The best approach to social media marketing is not a tools-led approach, but people-led approach that measures effectiveness against aims and objectives.
    Social media monitoring and buzz-tracking – listen to what is being discussed about you online.
    Objectives and metrics – Working out clear aims and objectives, and how to measure them, is the most important factor in a successful social media strategy.
    Explore available tools and experiment – This is an ongoing and deliberative process. The tools and environment change rapidly so you need to refine and adapt your strategies to make sure you’re engaging target audiences.
    Track, measure and refine – measure your outcomes and refine your strategy if you are not achieving the impact you expect.
  • Measurable Goals
    Establish a credible and effective online presence that drives business to your organization and builds your brand identity.
    Dominate the first page of Google for keyword searches in your organization’s market area.
    Build email lists that allow you to build your social networks and communicate with users, in order to achieve the above goals.
  • Content is King
    Creating compelling and useful content on a weekly basis at minimum will likely influence your web presence and brand more than anything else you do online.
    Users know good content when they see it and will direct other users to it using social media services (Facebook, blogs, social bookmarking).
    Your web site will fall off search engines’ radars if it does not post fresh content on a weekly basis with relevant key words.
    A blog platform is the most critical component to generating and sharing content and engaging users.
  • What is a blog?
    A Blog (Web Log) is technically any website with a syndicated news feed. There are more than 300 million blogs representing nearly any topic, interest or industry that exists. Not blogging is no longer an option.
    Critical blog elements:
    Categories and Tags
    Subscribable Syndication Feeds
    Comment Systems
    Social bookmarking
    Automatic Archiving
    Search Engine Optimized (SEO) Titles
    Trackback and Pings
    Email Notification
  • Types of Blogs
    Free – There are dozens and dozens of free blog platforms, such as Wordpress.com, Blogger and Livejournal.com.
