Social networks influence how we communicate, share ideas, promote ourselves and our businesses and keep up with global… Continue

Pepsi took its’ billion dollar social marketing campaign that was originally dedicated toward commercials during the Superbowl, and dropped it into social media, immediately seeing a substantial profit. Companies are abandoning the Yellow Pages, Newspaper Advertising, and Banners for social media, digital media, and new media specialists, or paying consultancies six to seven figures a year for assistance. Hiring a professional with this experience is no longer considered a fad, but a… Continue

For businesses embarking upon pivotal and difficult foundational change (like this whole social-media-integration-into-business thing
), there are distinct stages that very closely resemble the traditional “stages of grief” we’ve come to know around loss in our personal lives.
The people stewarding this change are often right in the thick of these phases, and experiencing these emotions throughout.… Continue

Almost as prevalent as blind social media evangelism is the level of fatigue and ennui around it.
It’s a tough thing, being in a nascent industry, just like in a growing company. There are pain points and obstacles. There’s disillusionment, frustration, disorganization as the real-life challenges make themselves known, and when we’re discovering more questions than answers. We feel like there’s more, but we can’t always see what it is or where we’re headed, and people are impatient… Continue

A couple of years ago, I wrote a post about 8 factors to consider when selecting a “social media expert.” Looking back now, I can see how my approach has evolved and matured since then. What’s more, as I’ve spent more time on the consulting side, my focus has shifted from self-identified “experts” to agencies.…

Great post by Dave Fleet.
Last week I wrote about the biggest challenge digital communicators face. However, it’s far from the only one; in fact it’s one of many. One of the big emerging challenges right now is that, after a few years of PR agencies leading the way, we’re seeing advertising agencies throw their hats into the ring for social media in… Continue

Social media, m-commerce, app and all new media strategies are creating a headache for the marketing, advertising and PR worlds. Change and innovation are outpacing our abilities to keep up with the times. Technologies are being built and advanced at a rate far beyond from what we can consume. Meanwhile, we’re all just trying to keep up.
It’s no wonder that any kind of strategy can fall short. They often do. Segments are evolving. Sub-segments are growing. And… Continue

Yes, the entire world can hear you.
Are you a selfish social networker? It’s been never a particularly positive trait, but it’s especially bad for public relations practitioners. If you work in PR, you can’t afford to be selfish: your professional reputation is on the line.…

Recently, I was having a conversation with a friend of mine in the PR industry who was given a large client. She was telling me how she is guiding the client through their foray into social media. As she was talking, naturally I started to check out their company website, blog, Twitter presence, etc. And I had to stop her.
I had to stop her because their corporate website (huge company, you have heard of them) failed just about every…

The more companies that step to the plate to take a swing at social media, the more scratch their heads at this concept of content. Whether it’s their Twitter feed, which makes content short and simple, to Facebook posts (a bit longer, still simple) or blog posts (more involved and complex but not rocket surgery), content confuses them. This is bad since content and a strategy around it drives a lot of social media success.
Understanding content is confusing, too, since… Continue
