The Social Media Discussion is Here to Stay

old telephone

I just read an interesting piece on twitip about four things that the author is tired of seeing on Twitter. She got some giggles out of me, especially when she explains her grievance about using social media to talk about social media. An excerpt:

This is a bit like having a telephone conversation that goes:
“Can you believe we’re using the telephone?”
“I know. I love the telephone.”
“I’d like to know how you are using the phone to enhance your conversations.”
“I have been able to call many people and discuss how we can use the telephone.”

Friday Recap: Fools’ Paradise Edition

ProspectMX sends Matt Cutts to space

What a week! Yesterday was April Fools’ Day and as could be expected, pranks galore ensued. David Harry has rounded up Google’s annual joke-a-thon, including a name change on the home page, Google Translate for animals and the mysterious disappearance of vowels on the Gmail home page. The cruelest April Fools’ joke of all came courtesy of College Humor. Lying to New Yorkers that they’d be so lucky as to get In-N-Out. That’s just mean!

Friday Recap: Dance Like You Mean It Edition

tweet by @Pamela_Lund

So I’m getting pretty anxious. I don’t know if it’s the caffeine IV drip from this morning or the tornado brain I get before leaving town for a monster search relay like SMX West, but things are getting all Fri-dazed up in here.

I mean, is it true that I might really hear Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer address a house packed with search marketers? As Marty Weintraub of aimClear wonders, could the occasion of Ballmer keynoting a search conference usher in a new SEO era? How refreshing to think that Microhoo may support the SEO industry!

Inside BCI’s Social Strategy for SMX — SEM Synergy Extras

Is your organization’s social media engagement at the level you’d like it to be? That was the question we asked in our Facebook Question of the Week. Some great examples came up in the conversation of how businesses are using social media, and how they’d like to advance their interaction in the future.

It’s conversations like those that we were hoping to generate when we introduced the Question of the Week to our Facebook fan page. To be honest, it doesn’t matter how many Facebook marketing webinars and conference presentations I’ve attended — I always sought a greater understanding of how Facebook can work for business.

Reading Up on Social Media Marketing’s Next Chapter

spaghetti and meatballs with plate and fork

Some days it feels like the universe is trying to tell you something. Today that something was that social media marketing (SMM) is the future, and yet, it is not what professional marketers might traditionally expect. Here are four lessons I learned today that advanced my understanding of SMM on the Web today:

  1. The recession of the public relations industry is lifting — as long as you’re making use of social media.
  2. If your organization is not active in social media marketing, you’re missing major opportunities.
  3. Social media marketing shouldn’t be treated like a separate marketing silo — it should be interwoven throughout an organization.
  4. The bar has been raised since social media was first used for marketing. Organizations need to graduate to a mature model of social media to truly take advantage of it.

If any of the above points whet your appetite, grab a fork and let’s dig in!

When is Hype Too Much?

Apple debuted a touchscreen tablet computer yesterday, following months of building fervor and anticipation. By the time Steve Jobs took the stage at the iPad event, the rumor mill had hit a frenzied pitch and it was almost impossible to travel the Web without stumbling over counterfeits and alleged leaks.

Now, Apple’s hype machine is like a well-oiled Rube Goldberg. Steve Jobs is notorious for demanding secrecy and retaining a tight-gripped control of the company’s media presence. Announcements, timing and even “leaks” all fit into a finely engineered plan to excite consumers and the media — and in the last few years each announcement and event has been more exciting and more anticipated than the next.

So, it’s worth taking a look at Apple’s media strategy around the iPad in the last month to see if there are any lessons for marketers to take away.
