  • Twitter and Facebook serve as that unique intersection between your social and professional lives. They can be valuable business tools or simply a way to stay in touch with family and friends. LinkedIn, however, is all business. In its simplest form, LinkedIn is an interactive resume and Rolodex. In practice, however, it is the online version of the business cocktail party, without the constraints of time or space. You can make introductions, provide a recommendation for those you have worked with in the past, and even ask for help from your network on a pressing question you may have. If you are a professional, own a business, or work in an field you would consider a “career” you should be on LinkedIn.
  • Groups are key here. Search for relevant groups based on keywords, join the ones that fit your target profile and add value to the network and the conversation. Do not use LinkedIN to sell. Use it to learn, contribute and build relationships. Ask questions and start discussions to find out what prospects really care about and to become more visible. Answer questions that relate to your expertise. Credibility ... not salesmanship ... builds connections. Remember: quality -- not just quantity.
  • Deloitte was recently ranked No. 1 on Bloomberg BusinessWeek's 2009 "Best Places to Intern" and "Best Places to Launch a Career" lists, and has also been named to Working Mother's "Top 10 Companies for Working Mothers" and "Best Companies for Multicultural Women," the DiversityInc "Top 50 Companies for Diversity" and FORTUNE's "100 Best Companies to Work For" lists, among other notable distinctions.  This year, Deloitte plans to make approximately 4,800 new hires for full-time employment and internship positions across its U.S. offices

    • 24. Plan for Negative Feedback
      • Always support feedback
      • Always address negative comments
      • Take them offline if necessary
      • Provide a discussion outlet
      • If you delete say so, and explain why
      • Set hours of operation – where you will respond
    • 25. Proven Tips for Loyalty & Engagement
      • Activate fans, don’t collect them
      • Create more content, more often
        • Allocate resources you have, decide on a schedule
      • Know when you want to post
        • ie, evenings, weekends for example are popular times
        • Schedule in advance (Hootsuite)
      • Make it worth your fan’s while to look out for your updates! Here some ideas to brainstorm how they could apply to CB
        • Razorfish published a study that asked consumers why they fan and follow brands. The greatest percentage of people, by far, responded ‘for the exclusive deals & offers’
        • If you want fans to watch out for and look forward to your updates, reward them from time to time with special offers
          • For many businesses, this can be coupons, giveaways, contests and even special info and access.
          • Regular deals (e.g. Friday specials or Tuesday giveaways) have also been shown to build highly engaged fan bases
    • 26. Get People Talking/Liking
      • Encourage comments by asking yes/no questions
        • Require very little effort to answer
      • Comment and “like” your own posts
        • Leverage the promotional power of your own network (as an administrator) to help get the ball rolling. Thus, having multiple administrators and moderators can be to your page’s benefit
      • Ask fans to “like” your update
    • 27. Make Posts Shareable/Add Value
      • Keep your updates short and to the point
        • Focus on creating headlines that grab attention
      • Create experiences
        • Ask fans to post their favorite link, tip, etc.
        • Expert Friday or Happy Hour Tips?
      • Encourage sharing
        • Ask your audience questions, start conversations and reach out directly to them. This is about building a social community, not a marketing channel.
      • Post third-party articles
        • Share relevant content without simply promoting your own material.
        • Ask for feedback and comments
      • Keep the content fresh
        • Offer different kinds of content — using different sources and alternating administrator voices and multimedia features.
        • Make it ready to cut and paste!
    • 28. Copywrite your FB updates as Headlines
    • 29.  
    • 30. Use Video
        • If you post videos, use the FB video uploader – you get a like button inside the video
    • 31. Target Messages
      • Send different messages to different segments of your audience
    • 32. Facebook Integrated!
    • 33. IKEA: photo tagging genius
      • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0TYy_3786bo
    • 34. Sacrifice a Friend
    • 35. Adobe: Real or Fake?
      • Guess whether an image was real or manipulated in Photoshop.
      • Results
        • 10% of page visitors played the game
        • Of those who played, 6% clicked the “Share” button
        • 6% clicked “Buy Now” at the end of the game
        • Over 6,000 new fans
    • 36. Facebook Ads
      • Consensus says that clickthrough rates for Facebook ads remain at 0.1% compared to search (which hovers around 12%)
      • Facebook will argue that these are good rates for undirected search
    • 37. Facebook Groups
      • The good
        • Create instant private or public spaces for your friends, co-workers, fellow hobbyists, you name it
        • Designating smaller circles of friends within your overall list of Facebook friends makes sharing easier
      • Some things to think about
        • All messages sent to a group are e-mailed to the address stored in your Facebook account. You can disable these in Account Settings
        • Group memberships can spiral out of control. Any of your friends can add you to any group, without your permission. Facebook won’t prompt you for your permission. If you’re not interested, you have to leave.
        • Groups can grow unwieldy as friends you added to a group you create start adding friends of theirs who aren’t friends of yours.
        • Admins can edit the group’s membership to remove people they don’t want which can be awkward
    • 38. Apps for Doing Business on FB
      • Great article: 30 Apps for Doing Business on FB
        • http://mashable.com/2009/01/22/business-facebook-apps/
      • Blog promotion: Networked blogs, Social RSS
        • Add FB Like Button to Your Blog
    • 39. Custom Landing Pages are Sexy
      • Custom content
        • DIY/WYSIWYG
          • tabsite.com
      • Custom
        • hyperarts.com

    • 40. Facebook Updates Comment Plugin with Votes and More
      • The voting system gives users the ability to rate a comment positively or negatively, similar to Digg’s voting system.
      • This feature will transform Facebook’s commenting platform for third-party websites into something far more advanced.
    • 41. FB Instant Search App – Great Tool
    • 42. Twitter is mainstream
      • Ranked 15 th most popular website in the world.
      • In 2010, Twitter’s usage has continued to show significant growth. Currently: 160 million users.
      • The number of tweets per day has soared 30% in the past four months to about 53 million in late-March, compared with 40 million in early-December 2009.
      • Free to set up and get started.
      • Can be linked to your Facebook account.
      • How many are on Twitter? How do you use it?
        • Do not underestimate the value!
    • 43. Not all Followers are Equal
      • Are your followers active?
        • Active users share your links, they give you feedback, they talk to you
      • Do the people who follow you have influence?
        • You rather get 50 retweets from users with 10 to 100 random followers? Would you rather get 10 retweets from influencers in same niche, with all of them having 1000 to 10,000 very relevant followers?
    • 44. Twitter Reach vs Engagement
      • Reach and engagement aren’t mutually exclusive – but they aren’t guaranteed either.
        • With a tweet, it’s a little less straightforward, since one million followers don’t equate to one million impressions.
        • If you follow over a thousand people on Twitter, your timeline is cluttered to the point that you’d likely have to actively seek out tweets from an individual Twitter user in order to guarantee that you had “seen” a given tweet from that user.
      • The solution : create Groups of people you want to keep up with
        • Use Hootsuite
    • 45. Integrated Marketing: Starbucks
    • 46. Are Twitter Followers Better Than Facebook Fans?
      • Twitter more likely to induce advocacy and future purchases
      • Just 3% of US internet users follow a brand on Twitter BUT they are likely to be influencers, while Facebook users are average consumers
      • Facebook users often become brand fans because they are fans in real life/use the brand as part of their self-image. For this reason, more difficult to increase their spending/advocacy
    • 47. WOM: Brand Recommendations
      • The pattern among Twitter followers, email subscribers and Facebook fans was similar when asked about whether they would recommend a brand
    • 48. Twitter Advertising – New!
      • From 3 – 160 million users in the last 2 years
      • Started with 6 advertisers and now have 40, including Starbucks, Ford and Microsoft. Expect 100 by year end 2010.
      • Avenues
        • Promoted Accounts (XBOX, HBO) – pay Twitter to suggest people follow their accounts based on shared interests
        • Ads on Twitter apps, starting with Hootsuite (revenue split)
        • Next yr: self-serve tool for local businesses to buy ads, deliver by location possible.
        • Promoted Tweets appear at the top of search results
          • Search “vacation,” for instance, and see an ad from Virgin America encouraging people to vote in Virgin’s Awkward Family Vacation Photo Contest. Advertisers bid on keywords and pay when someone clicks on a link in the ad, replies to it or forwards it to followers.
          • Promoted Tweets will eventually show up in Twitter timelines, not just when people search, based on the interests of people that users follow.
        • Twitter also sells Promoted Trends, so advertisers can show up in the list of topics most discussed on Twitter, for $100K/day.
    • 49. Instead of a 2010 Super Bowl ad… Pepsi decided to give money away Doing good: Pepsi Refresh Project
    • 50. $1.3M every month Pepsi Refresh Project
    • 51. Based on community voting
    • 52. Budweiser asks consumers to help select which commercial to show during the big game
    • 53. 1300onFillmore Local businesses: Getting people in the door
    • 54. Location-based tools
    • 55. Location-Based Social Networks
      • Gowalla, Foursquare, Loopt
        • Check-in at certain locations
        • Adding 100K users/week
        • Still a creep factor
      • Uses
        • Loyalty programs
        • Contests and scavenger hunts
        • Event marketing
        • Employee orientation/onboarding
        • Listening, observing, learning (analytics)
        • Now in talk with search engines
    • 56. #smfail
      • You think social media will solve all your problems
      • You don’t have a clear/focused strategy
      • You lack storytelling
      • You don’t listen first
      • You start then stop
    • 57. #smfail: Facebook News Feed 2006
      • The History: Facebook launched one of the most revolutionary features in social media during September 2006: the Facebook News Feed.
        • Within a week, 750,000 users were protesting the feature. After several days, Facebook added privacy controls and created a Facebook group to discuss privacy and news feed issues.
      • The Lesson: Prepare users for major changes and be proactive in responding to criticism. Now Facebook rolls out new features gradually.
    • 58. #smfail: Motrin Moms
      • The celebration of International Baby Wearing Week also serves as a platform for the Motrin brand’s launch of their new ads touting the tagline “we feel your pain”
        • Moms were not pleased with babies being made into fashion statements
      • The Lesson: Understand your audience before engaging with it. People don’t mess around when you talk about their kids.
    • 59. #smfail: Pepsi AMP UP
      • Pepsi apologizes for iPhone app to promote their AMP energy drink that helps guys score with pickup lines for 24 types of women – to help guys “get the job done”
      • Following the outpouring of criticism, Pepsi and AMP offered an apology over Twitter to irate consumers
    • 60. #smfail: Gap Logo Redesign
      • Gap puts forth a logo redesign - met with severe backlash from passionate fans, critics, and media.
        • Thousands of comments, logo redesign websites, Twitter spoof accounts and even Facebook accounts setup to lead this branding revolt.
        • Clearly consumers take just as much ownership in the logo as the brand.
    • 61. Social Media ROI Rule #1
      • Define a clear Social Media Strategy and customize your analytics to measure your success
      • Include hard numbers
        • Sales
        • Visits
        • Traffic
      • Include softer numbers
        • Tie your activity to something and measure that:
          • registrations, referrals, links, votes, reduced customer service issues, reduced costs and processes, lead generation, conversion, reduced sales cycles, inbound activity, customer insight, etc.
    • 62. Social Media ROI
      • Return on engagement – the duration of time spent either in conversation or interacting with social objects, and in turn, what transpired that’s worthy of measurement.
      • Return on participation – measuring and valuing the time spent participating in social media through conversations or the creation of, social objects.
      • Return on involvement – touchpoints for documenting states of interaction and tying metrics and potential return of each.
      • Return on attention - assess the means to seize attention, hold it and as such measure the responses activities that we engender.
      • Return on trust – A variant on measuring customer loyalty and the likelihood for referrals, a trust barometer establishes the state of trust earned in social media engagement and the prospect of generating advocacy and how it impacts future business..
    • 63. Linkedin: the Professional Social Network

    • 66. Tips For Promoting Your Group
      • Leverage your existing network to get your group going, build members

      • Invite key industry experts to join and engage. If there are some heavy-hitters in your industry, invite them to engage with the community.
      • Cross-market to related groups that you manage on different networks. Create a similar Page on Facebook and invite members of each network to join the group on the other network.
        • Let users choose how THEY want to interact with you
      • Integrate LinkedIn into all of your marketing efforts. Every time you do a webinar or go to a conference, notify your group and invite those you meet to join

      • Send announcements
        • Announcements are emails sent by you through LinkedIn to your group members. The benefit here is that recipients -- and their ISPs -- are more likely to recognize the email as trustworthy and your deliverability may be higher than if you send the email yourself.
        • Announcements will also get added as a discussion thread for your group, and you can mark this thread as a featured discussion for extra visibility.
        • Create your own analytics by using a URL shortener to measure the response to your announcement.
    • 68. More Tips
      • Import your blog RSS feed
        • Import your articles automatically to the News section. Go to News -> Manage news feeds and add the RSS feed for your blog.
      • Make your own LinkedIn analytics
        • To track the growth of your group, check the number of members every week and keep track of the group size in a spreadsheet.
        • To track the click through rate of links in your announcements, use a URL shortener with analytics like bit.ly .
        • Measure the traffic, attendance, etc. you get from LinkedIn over time.
      • Use Linkedin’s Polls application to create a poll and get feedback
      • Praise the good, deal with the bad
        • Highlight valuable contributions to the group. This incentivizes others to share their content and engage.
        • With negative or counterproductive behavior from a member, be professional and civil
    • 69. Linkedin Social Features
      • LinkedIn’s challenge is that it wants to bridge the gap between the social functionality that occurs on Twitter and Facebook and the more corporate approach of its network
        • but DO USERS WANT or USE THEM?

    • 83. More Linkedin Tips
      • Use LI to research potential prospects
        • You can create 3 saved searches.  At the top where you see the number of records in your search you’ll see a “save this search” button. LI will give you the option of sending you a weekly email, to get updates to your search. 
      • Ask for recommendations and make them EASY
        • After you have asked for the rec, write it yourself. You can position yourself in the best light, and they can cut and paste. Search other recs for ideas.
      • Groups: Fish where the fish are
        • Join groups that are in-line with your business, your objectives or a desired job – but be selective. The more “on target” the group, the more valuable the content they provide, and the greater the networking opportunities.
        • Select group members to connect with. In the groups tabs, you will see one called “other” with a drop down menu. Select members and you will see a list of all of the members in that group.  Offer to connect with the ones that make sense. 
      • Consolidate all your contacts in outlook, etc.
        • Go to “Contacts.” then “Connections.” At the bottom of your Connections box is “Export Connections.” Export the connections and import them into your preferred address book.

        • Go through the clutter – a trusted source (hint: this may not be you)
          • Peer influence will grow as social networking does
        • Give them something interesting to talk about
        • Look hard for new experiences and new content to offer
