  • If you have questions please interrupt me. <br /> <br /> Altho I do social media, sell social media and plan social-media strategy, I&#x2019;m only 1 of a team of 8 people and we can all chime in. <br /> <br /> If you&#x2019;d like, tweet your questions and add &#x201C;Hash-tag KMKTraining&#x201D; so we can track them to answer them while we&#x2019;re here or after the event if you&#x2019;d like.

  • For years, marketers have &#x201C;done marketing&#x201D; - we&#x2019;re all looking for ways to differentiate our businesses. <br /> <br /> They&#x2019;ve pushed their message out at trade shows, in their packaging, in print ads and broadcast ads. <br /> <br /> They&#x2019;ve spent millions on design and messaging. <br /> <br /> When you think of your favorite place to buy, for example, clothing. Why do you like it? Have you told your friends about it? If so, it&#x2019;s probably because you&#x2019;ve gotten great customer service at a good price.
  • Traditional media outlets have declined - in 2006, local TV news was used by 74% of American Internet users. In 2008, that was 62%. <br /> <br /> But Social Media site usage surged 9% in the same time period. Also, word of mouth from family, friends or coworkers also increased.

  • Customer loyalty - brand loyalty - has more to do with your personal feelings and a connection you make with a company than any fancy tagline or brochure an agency cranks out for a company. <br /> Incidentially, Tony Hsieh of Zappos is one of the best examples of how a CEO can utilize social media to further his or her brand. I encourage you to follow him on Twitter to see how he uses it.

  • Bad news point no. 2 regarding traditional marketing - people are realizing that THEY control the messages they receive. <br /> <br /> There&#x2019;s Caller ID, the National Do Not Call Registry, Tivo, satellite radio, the delete button...it goes on and on. <br /> <br /> They can tune out advertising messages more than ever before.

  • What this means, however, is that people are CHOOSING to interact with companies and brands online today as well. <br /> <br /> And that&#x2019;s good for marketers. <br /> <br /> We&#x2019;re moving from an &#x201C;interruption&#x201D; model - where we&#x2019;re trying to interrupt people&#x2019;s lives to get them to listen to our message - to a &#x201C;permission&#x201D; model where consumers choose or allow us to market to them. <br /> There are new tools available to you today that invite consumers to interact with your brand and make it their own, which only deepens their loyalty. <br /> <br /> There are blogs and RSS feeds; social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn; YouTube; online polls and more

  • So what is social media? <br /> <br /> One good way to look at it is to compare it to a business networking event or cocktail party, without time constraints or space limitations and potentially with every single one of the people who have a Facebook or Twitter account. <br /> <br /> Your goals on social media are very similar to the goals at a networking event: <br /> <br /> Engage people <br /> Start conversations <br /> Ask questions <br /> Help others <br /> Get advice <br /> And, above all, Add Value.

  • There are three essential aspects of social media: <br /> <br /> 1. Publish - that is, put your information out there in the form of a Facebook post or a tweet on Twitter. In social media, everyone can publish anything for everyone. Monitor what other people publish about your brand or industry and empower your customers to publish about you too. <br /> <br /> 2. Share - In social media, it&#x2019;s acceptable - actually expected and encouraged - for you to &#x201C;share&#x201D; other people&#x2019;s content. This is where you can develop strong loyalty among your customers. Share something unique from another company, a cool video or amazing photo, for example - and if people like it, they&#x2019;ll share it too. It&#x2019;s not just a one-way message of &#x201C;buy my product or service.&#x201D; It&#x2019;s all about setting a tone and culture about you and your brand. <br /> <br /> 3. Network - With social media, you can connect with everyone from anywhere in the world. Personally, that can mean your old high school pals or in business, it could be a supplier from China. Start with your existing friends and branch out from there. But make sure you bring something valuable to the conversation - people will &#x201C;Unfriend&#x201D; or &#x201C;Unfollow&#x201D; you if you&#x2019;re just posting the same promotion about your company all the time. <br /> <br /> Sounds pretty easy, right?

  • If you are launching a new product, you wouldn&#x2019;t just make the decision one day and it would magically appear the next day. There is strategy involved with business decisions. <br /> <br /> So it is with social media and how it fits into your marketing strategy. <br /> <br /> Social media, like all marketing, is only effective in a business sense when you think of it - and plan for it - as part of your overall marketing plan.

  • Before you start social media, like any marketing tactic, you have to ask questions before you start. <br /> Who are you targeting? <br /> Why are you targeting them? <br /> How will you reach them? <br /> How do you make them advocates of your brand? <br /> <br /> Most of social media growth is coming in the 35-plus year old demographic.
