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.

Advertising on Social Media via Nielsen


 

The Nielsen 2012 State of Social Media report was released earlier last week. I previously went over the report’s findings about the largest social networks of 2012. The report also contains some interesting information about advertising on social media and what it means for consumers.

Consumer Sentiment towards Social Media Advertising

Nielsen found a surprising statistic about consumer sentiment towards social media advertising. Nearly one-third of users believe that ads on social media sites are more annoying than other ads online. Social media isn’t supposed to be annoying. It’s supposed to be meaningful.

There are a few things this statistic tells me. Number one is social integration. In an attempt to make advertising more social, many social networking sites “hide” advertising within other content. An example of this is promoted trends on Twitter. These ad units are tied into other trends and tweets on Twitter. To some consumers, this might appear to be deceptive. The result is an annoyance and distrust of the brand advertising, when it should in fact be upon the social network.

This number also tells me some businesses aren’t using social media advertising correctly. Many social media platforms offer robust targeting options to their advertising. The goal is to display the right ads to the right people. Many businesses fail at this, and the result is irrelevant and sometimes irritating ads. It becomes frustrating when you see an ad in a language you don’t speak, an area you don’t live in (I’ve had ads for NYC bars in Facebook), and when the ads surely shouldn’t be targeting someone your age. Businesses can avoid this frustration by developing targeting strategies that make sense.

Finally, there is the aspect of spam and quality businesses advertising. For example, I have noticed a big drop in quality brands advertising on Facebook. The more lesser quality businesses advertising on a site, the less likely consumers will find these ads trustworthy and relate able. The result is a drop in engagement and an increase in frustration. It’s up to social media sites to develop ways to increase the quality of ads being served on their own sites.

5 Top Marketing Tips for LinkedIn

Once upon a time, networking meant going to conferences and getting out there and meeting people. LinkedIn, however, has made networking on a global basis much easier and effective, allowing users to network with people worldwide from the convenience of their own home or office.Top 5 Marketing Tips for LinkedIn

LinkedIn has quickly established itself as one of the top social networking sites for individuals and business owners who want to network with others, to widen their customer base, and to keep on top of what’s going on in their respective industries.

Succeeding at marketing with LinkedIn requires time and effort and trying the various methods for marketing with the popular social networking platform is important to find what works for your business.

1. Sell Your Skills.

Whether you opt for an individual or a company profile, your profile is the best way to market your product or service and to sell your skills. A LinkedIn profile is essentially an extended resume that includes a photo and recommendations from others. Fill it out completely to get the most of it from a marketing perspective.

2. Have others Sell You.

One of the most effective ways to win new business is to get recommendations from colleagues and current and former clients. LinkedIn allows you to request recommendations for each position in which you’ve worked and for your college experience. To take full advantage of marketing on LinkedIn, gather as many recommendations as you possibly can.

3. Position Yourself as an Expert.

LinkedIn offers an ideal platform to position yourself as an expert in your field or industry. In addition to individual profiles, LinkedIn allows users to post company profiles. Ideally, if you run a business, you’ll have one of each.

People want to work with experts in their respective fields. To build your credibility and share your expertise, become active in answering questions in LinkedIn’s “Question and Answer” section. Every question you answer will become a permanent part of your profile, allowing connections and others to see your wealth of knowledge.

Be sure to also join related groups and start answering members’ questions.
