  • The goal of this illustration is to help explain the concept of “social media” to business owners. It maps many of the alternatives on a scale of the amount of content that needs to be created as well as the frequency of interaction needed by you to make it an effective medium for your business.

    This illustration could be compared to an Ouija Board because the relative position can change by: business type, audience, and for a given business over time. Once this is married up with your target audience’s behavior, you will have a good perspective on the areas you should focus on to maximize the impact of your online marketing investments.

  • Lazy things on facebook and twitter post
  • Creating a support community for care takers to

    The caretakers record their patients data, it’s a CRM tool.

    They respect HIPPA. They charge people per month for these features

    $48 per month,

    The analytics and data being collected here is untapped.
  • This is more about dialog

    Mayo’s Twitter handle sets appropriate expectations for who they are and what they stand for. Explicitly states that if they’re following someone, that doesn’t necessarily mean an “endorsement” – you often times see employees setting up blogs or twitter handles that say something like “Works for IBM. Opinions my own” – this is a CORPORATE twitter handle openly endorsing the fact that their representation on the platform is about contributing to the community – “and does not necessarily = endorsement”

    The Facebook example is just a random sampling of many on the facebook page of 55k+ likes that shows support and contribution to the community on the individual level.
  • Built support groups to build relevancy in real world

    Mayo Clinic creates an advanced social presence by integrating social into much of their outbound communication and messaging. This creates a two way conversation with their customers and constituents - and shows the community that they're dedicated to serving patient needs. They showcase internal efforts on 'Mayo Clinic Connect'. From the website: [Mayo Clinic Connect] connect[s] people who have been through the Mayo Clinic experience with others facing a similar health concern. The Mayo Clinic twitter account (@mayoclinic) has ~210K followers, and the Facebook page (/mayoclinic) has ~55K likes.
  • Technology changes the way we think about how we check our health, it’s in our shoes.

    Now it’s a game, or good fin practices and good healthy.

    The future is radical esp with RFID.

    Also, it’s one thing for people to track
