  10. 10. 2. Content<br />Content is King<br />No hard selling<br />DO NOT communicate a sales message<br />DO IMPLY a sales message<br />Consumers want entertained, informed, and educated. <br />If they like your content they will probably like you.<br />If you share good content consistently over time they will likely begin to trust you.<br />Social media provides great vehicles to share video, photo’s, written, and audio content.<br />
  11. 11. 3. Conversations<br />Traditional Advertising: <br />Talking at someone<br />Social Media: <br />Talking with someone<br />Build the right communities and conversations naturally happen!<br />What are “Conversations?”<br /><ul><li>A comment on a blog post,
  12. 12. Aretweet,
  13. 13. Acomment on your LinkedIn or Facebook
  14. 14. A “Thumbs Up” on a Facebook wall </li></ul>You need REPLY BACK to these responses or there is NO conversation.<br />

  16. 16. 4. Conversion<br />All of the pieces should work together to lead toConversion.<br />Common mistake: Send people to the home page. It builds traffic but may not help build DIALOGUE.<br />5 Actions of the Landing Page:<br />Get a visitor to click (to go to another page, on your site or someone else’s)<br />Get a visitor to buy<br />Get a visitor to give permission for you to follow up (by email, phone, etc.). This includes registration of course.<br />Get a visitor to tell a friend (all the more subtle) <br />Get a visitor to learn something, which could even include posting a comment or giving you some sort of feedback<br />
