Good afternoon everyone!(brief intro overview of contact info)How to implement your online branding strategy…Obviously the title we’ve used here is more content than we can cover in 75 minutes. My intent is to cover some of the techniques I’ve adopted and developed that have helped me and roundpeg get on the MindTouch list of Top 25 MIB.I’d like to thank Jack Molisani for including me in the program along with so many of the other MIB’s in this list,At 21 or so I’m not quite as high as most of the others, but we do have most of the top folks on that list here, including #1, RJ Jacquez from Adobe giving the closing keynote address prior to my presentation on adding power to social media using Adobe software(shameless plugs, check!)
At roundpeg we focus on 4 social platforms. They’re all household names, and we’ve found ways to manage each from central aggregators, as well as distribute content responsibilities across the organization.We’ve also linked them so that at some level each feed into the othersBy doing that we hope to reduce the effort needed in each individual platform, as well as increasing our reach and # of eyeballs on each piece of contentI always laugh when I see graphics like this… thinking if I had a dollar from every sm account out there, when all I’d need is just a dollar for everytime we look at a graphic like this…(actually I’m willing to settle for just a dollar for every similar graphic in a preso at this conference!)Here’s the problem with these graphics: every time I come across them, what I really see: (next slide)

Checkfacebook.comHere’s why we need to be pushing our message into these platformsWhile it’s true that31.3% are aged 18-24, the perception is that college kids are driving the facebook market. what’s interesting here is that 65% of FB users are in the 25-64 age range/ therefore, they’re basically part of the working force.
As far as awareness goes, twitter is coming on strong. They’ve recently pulled even with facebook in terms of brand recognition
Though they clearly have a ways to go as far as usage.
