This Week’s Social Media News

Social Media News for Online Marketing Success”

Due to social media, online marketing has been changed forever. Social media marketing is based on relationships. It involves a 2-way conversation between the business and the prospective consumer. This communication brings value to both parties, requires listening, as well as talking, and builds trust and relationships.

It may sometimes seem like no one is listening, but the best way to evaluate the effectiveness of your social media campaign is to consider the overall impact of social engagement and participation.

A post from TopRank entitled, “5 Tips For More Impact From Social Media Participation,” gives you 5 questions to answer so you can better understand your engagement and participation on social media. These include:

1. What’s different about you?
2. How are you communicating that in your content?
3. Do your recent tweets, comments and updates support your objectives?
4. Are you thinking proactively about the impact of your content?
5. When you look at your cumulative social image, does it portray what you want to be known for?

I think these are some very powerful questions that I will ponder on. For more detail, check out the complete article at the link in the social media news section below.
