Social Media Advertising Not Making Friends With Consumers – thnx @david_vanamburg


In spite of a staggering 20% increase in user volume over the past year, user satisfaction with social media websites at 68 is still one of the lowest-scoring industries among all those measured by ACSI. It surpasses only Internet service (65), which indicates that users are displeased with multiple components of their online experience.

So what reasons do users most often cite as the cause for their low satisfaction? According to ACSI’s July 2013 report, the main contributor is an increase in advertising on social media sites. Other concerns include wariness about privacy violations and unhappiness with the ease of interface use.

Wikipedia, the leading company for a fourth straight year at 78, is notable for its lack of advertising and easy-to-use interface. Pinterest, at 72, was the only site to make a significant gain (+4%) and also benefits from a streamlined interface that allows users to create and access their accounts via Facebook and Twitter.

Social networking sites Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn are at the bottom of the category in spite of their popularity. Sites like these will likely need to step up their efforts in the crucial areas of advertising and interface development to improve customer satisfaction. In the meantime, they remain the lowest-rated companies in the e-business category.

How Much For A Facebook Friend?|vía @cmo_com


While marketers agree on the importance of putting a price tag on social media interactions, they also say the area is wide open to interpretation–and very misunderstood. Heads of marketing from Sears, Kimberly-Clark, Comcast and other brands discuss how they measure social ROI. |

ARTICLE HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Most marketers repeatedly refer to pinning down the real value of Facebook likes, Twitter favorites, and Pinterest pins as the “Holy Grail.”
  • “You don’t understand the true value of a like unless you understand the value of paid media around it.”
  • A click-versus-revenue figure would be a simple answer to the ROI question, but is not necessarily the right answer for top management.

Backtracking Vs. Forecasting
Many marketers analyze effectiveness by looking at before-and-after results of a campaign and then use that to model future efforts. For example, Sigue leyendo

10 Brands with Great Google Plus Pages vía @jeffbullas


10 Brands with Great Google Plus Pages

Google+ has risen astronomically since it was launched in 2011. It overtook social media giant Twitter in January 2013, and is now second only to Facebook in popularity. With over 700 million registered users, companies have a lot to gain by maintaining a page on the service. However, some Google+ pages are more popular than others.

Take a look at this list of 10 brands with great Google plus pages, and get some tips, ideas and insights for your own business.

#1. Toyota

Toyota has an excellent Google+ page. They share industry news, inspirational photos and innovative concepts with their followers, and update their page regularly. However, it’s the ‘Toyota Collaborator’ feature which really stands out. Using Google+ Hangouts,

  • Users can invite friends to help them design and customise their new Toyota
  • Up to five people can collaborate on the project, changing paint colours and wheel rims, discussing the options, and rotating the car to view it from different angles
  • The interior of the car can be viewed through eye-tracking
  • The finished car can be taken for a virtual test drive on Google Maps

#2. Cadbury

The layout of a Google+ page – wide and open – lends itself particularly well to visual content. Pages which recognise this tend to do better than those which rely solely on text. Cadbury has capitalised on this, ensuring that their page is full of large, bright, attractive images. Scrolling down the page reveals striking pictures of their various products, delicious-looking cakes and biscuits, and lashings of the distinctive Cadbury purple.

#3. Hugo Boss

As a high-end fashion retailer, Hugo Boss are experts in visual design. They’ve carried the clean lines and defined colours of their clothing to their Google+ page, which reads like the pages of a glossy magazine. The page isn’t an advert for the brand so much as an aspirational luxury lifestyle guide – and as a result has gained a large number of followers.

“The Definition of Advertising Has Never Been More Unclear” @Adweek CC/ @r2rothenberg


…Source of both opportunity and crisis

For most of the past 100 years, if a marketer said he needed a new advertising campaign, everybody knew what that meant. The machine turned on. The marketer called the agency of record’s account team. The account team composed a brief capturing the strategy and called in the wild and wooly creatives to bring it to life.

The writers and designers applied their art to one or more of these four finite canvases: the television commercial, full-page print ad, radio ad or billboard. Maybe they would sprinkle in a few coupons. The public played along, too; with no ad blockers or DVRs, they just consumed advertising (or ignored it) en masse. It all just worked.

But it doesn’t anymore. Now, there is no machine or even consensus on the basic definition of advertising. And that is the source of both opportunity and crisis.

Today’s media landscape keeps getting more diverse—it’s broadcast, cable and streaming; it’s online, tablet and smartphone; it’s video, rich media, social media, branded content, banners, apps, in-app advertising and interactive technology products like Sherwin-Williams’ Chip It! It’s even physical interactive gear, like Nike+ Fuelband. Pushed an inch farther, the new Google Chromecast dongle could fit under that marketing classification, and the smart watches on the horizon will be yet another platform. Sigue leyendo

Crowdfunding y social media: una evolución conjunta – vía @RedesSocialesES


Que el mundo social media ha cambiado muchas cosas en la red no es ningún secreto y creo que todos los que hemos podido navegar en la era anterior y en la actual, en la que las redes sociales se han apoderado de casi todo hemos sido conscientes de la evolución que ha sufrido. Y aunque hace un momento hemos hecho un análisis muy relacionado, cuando hablamos del ecommerce y del social media, en este caso vamos a pasarnos a un concepto de la época del nacimiento de los social media actuales, el crowdfunding, e intentaremos ver cómo los social media han influido en su evolución.

Crowdfunding y social media: una evolución conjunta

SOCIAL MEDIA CROWFUNDING

La verdad es que si en sí mismas las consideras redes sociales entonces es cierto que la influencia es aún mayor en este mundillo, porque para aquellos puristas que creen que social media lo son plataformas como Facebook o twitter, tampoco cabe duda el papel que juegan estas de cara al funcionamiento del crowdfunding, con lo que hablaríamos de una evolución de ambos conceptos prácticamente de la mano, y el éxito de las redes sociales en sí mismas ha garantizado que las plataformas de crodwfunding estén hoy dónde están.
