  • Always monitor progress, Until you create a social media strategic plan based on marketing objectives, and find ways to use social media tools to listen and join the conversation going on in your markets, you may find it harder to engage and network and ultimately build relationships and sales through the use of social media tools.I believe the process for meeting long-term marketing objectives through social media is universal, but the tools needed to meet them are not. Twitter may indeed be a primary social media tool for some, while the Facebook platform or a blog is what allows another to progress through these stages. A third organization may find they can strategically move through the hierarchy by integrating every tool in the toolbox with their offline initiatives.Plan, listen, join and grow!

    The What & WhySocial Media?

    Which strategy is appropriate.
  • What is Social Media ?
    Wikipedia:
    “Social Media is an umbrella term that defines the various activities that integrate technology, social interaction, and the construction of words and pictures.”
    Barry Schimmel:
    • “It’s media (content that is published) with a social component
    (anyone can add to it).”
  • WHY Social Media Marketing?
    High search engine rankings
    Connect with customers & separate yourself from the competition (engagement).
    Improve your website: Add urgency & “now” with daily specials, upcoming events, etc.
    Get found by Social Media Searchers
    EASY! Most of this stuff can be done from your phone.
    It’s FREE!
  • Social Media Strategy
    Blogging
    Monitor & Measure
    RSS
    The foundation – read blogs (Google Reader or Bloglines), comment on blogs and then blog. This is the doorway to all other social marketing – WordPress, TypePad, Blogger
    Monitoring is what you do to find information which you can then measure.
    Branching out to take advantage of the numbers of potential prospects that you might find in sites like Facebook or MySpaceHere’s an enormous list of social networking sites from Mashable
    Give your regular customers reasons to keep you on their mind!
    Twitter
    Facebook
    LinkedIN
    Youtube
    Etc.
    Filter content around subjects and use RSS technology as a tool to help you repurpose, republish and create content – Some tools – Feedburner, Google News
    Social Networking
    Social Search
    Social Bookmarking
    Tell your story this is often ignored in this discussion but I think it’s become very important for small business owners. Directories that publish reviews from customers – good and bad. You can participate and should stimulate and manage your reputation here. Insider Pages, Google Maps, Yahoo Local, Local.com, Yelp
    Tagging content to and participating in social bookmarking communities can be a great way to open up more channels to your business as well as generate extra search traffic, but it takes work – del.icio.us, Digg, StumbleUpon, Reddit, Mixx, Small Business Brief
