“For maximum success, Twitter can’t stand alone. Beyond tweeting, our team dropped blog posts about the campaign, alerted our Facebook base, sent out an email to our customer, issued a press release and conducted traditional media outreach. We also worked with BlogHer to tap into their extensive network of influential women and mom bloggers. If marketers do their homework and recognize that Twitter campaigns must go hand-in-hand with other efforts, they will increase their overall success. In our case, once the Go Granny tweetcapades started, there was no stopping them.”
While you can undoubtedly learn a thing or two (okay, a lot more than that) just by reading up about all-things inbound in our marketing section, there’s lots more to learn from the many, many great marketing minds that share their knowledge with everyone online — particularly on Twitter.
By 2014, Forbes Magazine’s website had written about the seven most popular ways companies use content marketing. In it, the columnist points out that by 2013, use of content marketing had jumped across corporations from 60% a year or so before, to 93% as part of their overall marketing strategy. Despite the fact that 70% of organizations are creating more content, only 21% of marketers think they are successful at tracking return on investment.

The Direct Selling Association (DSA), a lobbying group for the MLM industry, reported that in 1990 only 25% of DSA members used the MLM business model. By 1999, this had grown to 77.3%. By 2009, 94.2% of DSA members were using MLM, accounting for 99.6% of sellers, and 97.1% of sales. Companies such as Avon, Electrolux, Tupperware, and Kirby were all originally single-level marketing companies, using that traditional and uncontroversial direct selling business model (distinct from MLM) to sell their goods. However, they later introduced multi-level compensation plans, becoming MLMs. The DSA has approximately 200 members while it is estimated there are over 1,000 firms using multi-level marketing in the United States alone.

The percentage of an MLM company’s total profit that is ultimately distributed to its participants (the sales force), away from the MLM owners or shareholders, differs from one MLM company to the next. However, the percentage earmarked to be paid to participants is usually a quite smaller share of overall company profits. The earmarked figure is then distributed in complex compensation plans which, ultimately, funnel most of it to a few individual participants in the upper-most levels of the MLM participant pyramid. The remaining majority of participants (often over 99.5% or more) receive no returns, or negligible return which are more often than not at a net loss after they deduct expenses which were incurred in the promotion of their “independent businesses”.
In April 2006, the FTC proposed a Business Opportunity Rule intended to require all sellers of business opportunities—including MLMs—to provide enough information to enable prospective buyers/participants to make an informed decision about acquiring/joining a business venture with information disclosed about the average likelihood of monetary profitability (and the extent of monetary profitability, if any) of acquiring/joining the business venture. In March 2008, however, the FTC removed “Network Marketing” (i.e. MLM) companies from the proposed Business Opportunity Rule, thus leaving MLM participants without the ability to make an informed choice of entring or not entering MLMs based on the disclosed likelihood of success and profitability:

While everything seems obvious and you are ready with your marketing pitch, more like a sales pitch with a bulk mode kicking inside you – before you start any further with your spam-ish approach, you need to wait and think. Networking starts with knowing, helping, contributing and sharing – not with that bulk and unsolicited message.
Share of voice (SOV) is the number of times a brand has been talked versus its competitors (conversations). Outside the digital world, SOV stands for the space and frequency a brand advertisement is placed on traditional media.
Remember that your employees are your company’s best resource – make the most of their passion and individuality. They’re already social, so start thinking of how you can empower your employees to have their own voice, build their influence and expertise, and you will discover many can and will become your company’s most active and valuable social advocates… and focus attention of the value you bring to the marketplace.
Trend spotting refers to the latest consumers’ comments about a brand, product or service that must be targeted. Some tools can be provided by Google Trends, Trendsmap (Twitter) and other sites that report what is in everybody’s mouths worldwide.

YouTube, a subsidiary of Google, is an online video platform driving (and benefiting from) the surge to content marketing. As of 2016, YouTube had over 1 billion users, representing 1/3 of all internet users and reaching more people 18–34 years of age than any cable provider in the U.S.
As a full-time network marketer, I realized that I had no one to prospect. So I left my home every morning and went out into the Texas heat to “bump into” 100 new prospects a day before I could go home. That was tough. And that’s when I thought that there has to be..

These are short (two or three pages at most). That means there won’t be a lot of room for big images, so you’ll want to use text formatting to make them easy for a reader to quickly scan through. Link or point to other resources for more in-depth learning.
The tip here is to get the timing right when asking for testimonials and being specific in your recommendation request. The best time is right after you’ve completed the job for your client or working with a colleague. This helps them to give more meaning and depth to their testimonial while it’s still fresh in their memory. And your request for the recommendation must be personalised (never use the ready-to-use template that LinkedIn offers). Outline some questions that will help guide them to write a testimonial that can help future clients to make a decision i.e. what were the results before and after your service/product? What was their experience working with you? How did they find the communication/process/turnaround time?
Lesson: A tweetathon can significantly benefit a time-sensitive social good campaign. USA for UNHCR’s social media consultant Shonali Burke explains that the campaign experienced a huge bump in activity as a result of using Twitter:
The U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) states: “Steer clear of multilevel marketing plans that pay commissions for recruiting new distributors. They’re actually illegal pyramid schemes. Why is pyramiding dangerous? Because plans that pay commissions for recruiting new distributors inevitably collapse when no new distributors can be recruited. And when a plan collapses, most people—except perhaps those at the very top of the pyramid—end up empty-handed.”
1/10 people who read this post won’t scroll this far, so we figure some self-promo will only put 1/10 of you on our bad side. (That’s the right math, right??). We think great content is a team sport. That’s why we let the whole team share their insights, knowledge, and occasional rants about digital advertising. It makes for some great stuff, trust me.

Takeaway: Images create emotional responses, whether positive or negative, and emotional responses serve as motivators. Ask yourself, “ What do I want followers to do after they read this tweet?” Then find a fitting image that encourages your audience to act.
With Moat, advertisers are privy to the Media Rating Council’s definition of viewability, which charges advertisers after 50 percent of a video is in view for two seconds. However, Pinterest has not undergone a full-blown audit from the MRC to vet its measurement techniques as Facebook and Google have. Pinterest’s partnership with Nielsen will help advertisers determine whether they deliver the right ads based on audience demographic.
