  36. 36. CONSIDER TEN SOCIAL MEDIA TOOLS WORTH IT (green) HELPFUL (yellow) WASTE (red) Social Media Landscape
  37. 37. Target Audience Communication Brand Awareness Referral Traffic Personal vs. Professional Twitter There are a number of tools to help track mentions and sentiment. Reach is broad once established Allows opportunity to engage and spread news virally. Excellent for branding and public relations management The potential is large, but over- promotion and too frequent posts can turn off followers. Find a solid balance Strong in both areas where messaging, sharing, and follower/following is a measure of influence. Facebook Great for engaging people, sharing options, and participation. Use the platform to organically grow followers and/or utilize ads to grow the follower base. Do not forget to keep content interesting Excellent way to share content from the website and drive traffic. The use of share buttons continues to increase cross- shares While primarily viewed as a personal social tool, the network is utilized to promote professional accomplishments via brand pages.

  38. 38. Target Audience Communication Brand Awareness Referral Traffic Personal vs. Professional LinkedIn Engagement is possible through groups, but moderation is needed to keep them clean. Group performance and frequency vary Effective for personal branding as well as an organization with brand pages Majority of users tend not to click- through; however, what traffic comes tends to be from relevant readers from the target audience Very strong and focused on the professional network and interests, while allowing integration with other content tools YouTube Powerful channel for quickly engaging the audience and feeding content to many vehicles Excellent tool once a catalog of video is created that collectively represents the brand and relates to the target audience Traffic primarily goes to the video, and links can be added to the description; however, embedded videos into a website help both ways Can be used for both areas; however, focus and big picture purpose is needed, not to mention some skill. Credit: Arrangement and content aided by Adobe’s CMO.com. Modified and enhanced by Shaun Holloway, srholloway.com Social Media Landscape
  39. 39. Target Audience Communication Brand Awareness Referral Traffic Personal vs. Professional Flickr Properly tagged photosets and photos help communicate activity and showcase the message Participation is possible but not likely, but embedded photo slideshows help significantly Even with many views, the click- through rates to the website remain low Photo sharing is fragmented among tools and networks, but it can work well for both areas for branding and sharing. Reddit When evaluating “sub-reddits,” the feedback is valuable, but reach can vary based on relevance There is little branding opportunity, as most stories are from major news sites. Images attribution is limited If Reddit likes the brand, then traffic is good. There is balance on trying too much and not enough Difficult to establish a connected reputation in both areas and primarily caters to niche audiences. Credit: Arrangement and content aided by Adobe’s CMO.com. Modified and enhanced by Shaun Holloway, srholloway.com Social Media Landscape
  40. 40. Target Audience Communication Brand Awareness Referral Traffic Personal vs. Professional Pinterest Not a great platform for engaging customers due to the nature of the collections and functions Following and sharing pins can help spread the brand’s impact and encourages others to do the same Traffic generation is big, but only the website needs pinnable images Primarily a personal photo and Internet sharing service, professionals in certain industries can succeed. Slideshare Great for organizations that utilize slide decks. Embedded presentations into website helps promotion Many ways to leverage and increase exposure. Strategically utilize the Slideshare URL to encourage traffic Very similar to YouTube in that traffic tends to stay within the network. Embedding slideshows and feeds helps As a LinkedIn company, sharing content is mainly professional with good personal site integration methods.

  41. 41. Target Audience Communication Brand Awareness Referral Traffic Personal vs. Professional Google+ Communication and engagement possibilities are rare, and user participation is relatively low Majority of brand searches appear in Google search results and +1’s rank highly Content can be heavily shared and influence how the content ranks. Using the +1 button helps The search ranking alone makes this a must-have network; however, it’s a mix for both areas trying to carve out its fit. Instagram Communication exists within the site for engagement but relatively self- contained Excellent way to show images of offerings and promote campaigns. API can push photos to sites Very difficult. Only the creative and the super curious can accomplish Sharing photos and short videos is currently a personal endeavor but professionals in the right niche may find a way.
