Instagram has also launched their Instagram Business profiles and paid advertising. The Business profile adds a phone number to your bio and gives access to extensive analytics data that wouldn’t be otherwise available unless you’re using a social media tool. Read our blog on how to set up an Instagram account for business where we walk through you the step-by-step instructions and key elements you need to consider when managing Instagram for other businesses.
Content marketing attracts prospects and transforms prospects into customers by creating and sharing valuable free content. Content marketing helps companies create sustainable brand loyalty, provides valuable information to consumers, and creates a willingness to purchase products from the company in the future. This relatively new form of marketing does not involve direct sales. Instead, it builds trust and rapport with the audience.
“Roland Whitsell, a former business professor who spent 40 years researching and teaching the pitfalls of multilevel marketing”: “You’d be hard-pressed to find anyone making over $1.50 an hour, (t)he primary product is opportunity. The strongest, most powerful motivational force today is false hope.”
Pinterest is also adding companies that help advertisers apply their own data when targeting ads. These companies — like Epsilon, Experian, Salesforce’s Krux, Acxiom’s LiveRamp, mParticle and Neustar — will be able to take a brand’s data, like a list of customers’ email addresses, and use it to aim ads at those customers on Pinterest, as well as people who may not be customers but share similar characteristics.
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?
Think about it, you already know all of the opportunities that your closest connections can share since you talk to them more frequently. It’s time to use LinkedIn like a live networking event and introduce yourself to others, make new friends, and start helping more people connect. Also, start accepting invitations to others who add you, as the more connections you have, the larger your expanded network grows which helps create more opportunities in the long run. Here are six other reasons you should connect with everyone on LinkedIn.
You have added to my knowledge. I was checking out on my social media platform and i discovered that my post on LinkedIn usually showed up on top of other post from other social media. LinkedIn is best if you want to find your post at the top on google.
Go back and read the content marketing definition one more time, but this time remove the relevant and valuable. That’s the difference between content marketing and the other informational garbage you get from companies trying to sell you “stuff.” Companies send us information all the time – it’s just that most of the time it’s not very relevant or valuable (can you say spam?). That’s what makes content marketing so intriguing in today’s environment of thousands of marketing messages per person per day.
Along with Sponsored Content, there are two additional ways to advertise on LinkedIn: self-service ads and managed campaigns. The chart below offers a quick breakdown of advertising options on LinkedIn:
Relationships are one of the most important things we have in life. The relationships we build are so powerful because they allow us to give; they also provide us with the support and encouragement we need on our journey. LinkedIn has proven to be an incredible platform to help us build relationships. When we connect with others – whether they be potential clients, business partners, or mentors – we learn and grow as individuals and discover new ways we can become even better at what we do and what we have to offer.
A strong strategy needs to map to what the audience is looking for no matter where they are in the sales funnel. They’re spending more time researching before they reach out to buy, and brands can provide the answers they need through content. Informative content like blog posts and infographics do wonders for early-stage brand awareness. When prospects are getting ready to make a purchase, they’ll want more immersive collateral such as white papers, eBooks or product videos. Providing these resources sets brands apart from the competition
Louis Vuitton’s Twitter marketing strategy is one-way, no engagement, with its focus on pushing its products. It only retweeted 5 times in 2016, all from its other Twitter accounts. Yet it has nearly 6m followers, who retweeted the brand’s tweets over 378K times. It’s not a strategy that would work for all brands, but it works for luxury brands that users aspire to.
Like all content marketers, you want readers to get the most out of your content. But creating and distributing high-quality content across the increasing number of channels you’re expected to manage takes a lot of time and resources.
@LewisHowes @KristiHines Lewis… I agree, that would be very helpful information. Kristi… this should help with the SlideShare application: http://www.slideshare.net/ashwan/adding-slideshare-to-linkedin-presentation. Take care, David.

Yes, it is good, I agree. But Instagram is useless without at least thousand followers. Before act you must find followers. Solving the problem I faced I have found many programs. I think that the best one is zen-promo.com ,because it has city-based search. So you can find followers right in your city.

Not all brands rely on offering high profile prizes to help drive Twitter engagement. Taco Bell has adopted a very different approach by focusing much of their effort on engaging with some of their most influential followers. By diving into conversations with users who have over 10,000 followers, they’re able to maximise their brand awareness through mentions, retweets and recommendations.

I was at “Sweetness Bakery and Cafe” the other day to order a hot chocolate with a friend. The barista asked me if I wanted half & half, whole milk, soy, rice, or hemp milk. I had never tasted hemp milk before. And I remembered the transition soy went through when manufacturers started sweetening soy up. So, I decided to try hemp since I figured it was sweet enough or the cafe wouldn’t suggest it. And Oh My God! It was the best cup of hot chocolate EVER! And I was amazed at what can be done with hemp.

Moreover, unlike LinkedIn, brand followers on these other social networks already expect or are at least aware that companies use the platforms to sell their products and services. This is definitely not the case on LinkedIn, where blatantly pushing your business, spamming and obvious hard selling is highly frowned upon. Because the network consists of a totally different audience, LinkedIn marketing requires a different type of approach to get the results you want. [New LinkedIn Features Help Grow Your Brand]
Businesses focused on expanding their reach to more customers will want to pay attention to the increase in volume of visitors, as well as the quality of those interactions. Traditional measures of volume include number of visitors to a page and number of emails collected, while time spent on page and click-through to other pages/ photos are good indicators for engagement.
Lewis, good stuff man. I think one of the more compelling points you bring out in the article is #9. Optimizing for search results is key. Just taking a few minutes to dial in your parameters can make all the difference in the effectiveness of a profile. Thanks for all you do and are doing!
That’s where GE differentiates itself in the tech space on Twitter. They’ve found a perfect balance of thought leadership and authenticity. They use Twitter to teach their followers what they’re doing; for example, they’re fantastic at breaking down the complex concepts and terminology they work with into simple language.
Don’t toss Twitter to the side thinking it’s only a social connector. Social media can be a powerful marketing tool to promote brand and increase awareness. How will you use Twitter for your next marketing campaign?
“From December 2010 (when the Blue Key site was launched) until April 2011, there were approximately 1,100 keys dispatched. For the duration of the 6-week campaign (May 9 to June 20), there were 2,645 keys dispatched, and significant awareness created via online and social media. That’s a huge jump in just 6 weeks.”
Cornwell stressed that creating a targeted campaign on Twitter, instead of targeting a wider audience, gave appbackr the most bang for its buck. “LSATMax lends itself to a targeted campaign. We were able to focus on people on Twitter searching for relevant keywords — LSAT, law school, etc. — to let them know this app was available as a study tool.”
