Quality of lead is everything. There are some great looking websites out there that look totally rocking, but we found that the quality of leads when we called them, were less than what you should expect in an MLM lead. Beautiful site, great looking logo, lousy leads.
Louis Vuitton relies heavily on brand ambassadors from fashion and entertainment. Whether it’s actor, Léa Seydoux, the face of the brand, or newsjacking red carpet events and photographing celebrities who’re wearing Louis Vuitton.
A member of the public wore a shoelace as a necklace and tweeted a pic, it went viral. Engagement was at 310K and the story was picked up by the press. Whilst not directly promoting Nike, it brought huge interest @Nike. Strangely, Nike did not engage with the tweet.
The power of numbers behind the internet make my leads seem as if someone handed John Henry the Jackhammer, then Kasparov hooked up Deep Blue with hardware to automate that, then Telsa came along with some regionally sourced AC to power the thing and as a result you sit on the beach worry free. “Look MOM! NO HANDS!!”
Being a professional network, LinkedIn cuts through the clutter and confusion, and leads you the purpose of its existence – networking. Over the years, I used LinkedIn for various reasons with varied level of success but the reason I love LinkedIn is its capability to give me leads. The leads generated from LinkedIn have higher conversion rate. It is a powerful market segmentation tool. When I search for specific leads, their search editor gives tons of options. I avoid cold emails and therefore, I engage with selected potential leads on LinkedIn and other platforms before pitching them. It helps to build a rapport and get good work from other professionals.
I know that in order for social media to work it takes more than having a lot of followers or connections and posting stuff to my status. It requires some hopefully many of these people who have gotten to know me deciding to share it with their contacts.
App marketplace appbackr began using Promoted Tweets and Account in mid-May to promote the LSATMax app that is currently on its way to funding its next iteration via the appbackr platform. “The app is directed to people studying for the LSAT, so a 20 to 26 age group roughly,” says Sarah Cornwell, product manager at appbackr. “Our online marketing budget for this app was split between Facebook ads and Twitter. In the past, we would have focused entirely on Facebook, but with Twitter, we can watch the impact in bit.ly, and we like that immediate feedback.”

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.
Like many big-name brands, Siemens gets its fair share of negative press. Rather than facing it head on, like The New York Times, it tweets positive and promotional news from its main account and from @Siemens_press and @SiemensMobility; regularly using positive hashtags like #CO2neutral # CleanEnergy #EnergyEfficient.
Falls is a very accomplished content creator, having co-authored two books on marketing and founded the website Social Media Explorer. On top of all that, he regularly converses with fellow marketers and posts his own thoughts on industry happenings on Twitter (both of which he does quite humorously).

Each social network tends to gather a different type of user. Match your personas to network demographics to find out where you target audience is social online, and start sharing your content. Let’s cover the differences between social networks:
The Big Word Project, launched in 2008, aimed to redefine the Oxford English Dictionary by allowing people to submit their website as the definition of their chosen word. The project, created to fund two Masters students’ educations, attracted the attention of bloggers worldwide, and was featured on Daring Fireball and Wired Magazine.
Customers have a natural curiosity about where their products come from, and you can use Instagram to show them their whole lifecycle. This is especially relevant for companies that sell environmentally friendly or FairTrade products. Source images to demonstrate how products are made – from the base material, production and distribution.
While JetBlue uses their main @JetBlue Twitter account to handle customer service, LinkedIn actually uses a separate account called @LinkedInHelp. The folks at LinkedIn don’t use this account in the traditional sense, and its goals certainly don’t revolve around gaining new followers. Instead, the purpose of the account is to give LinkedIn users an easy way get their questions answered quickly through Twitter.
The Twitter contest was a smaller portion of a larger campaign, called “Deal 30,” which involved 30 partner deals and promotions over 30 weekdays. The AAdvantage team created a microsite that promoted a new daily partner deal or promotion — the Twitter contest occurred on the fourth day of the promotion. Participants had to register their AAdvantage number on a microsite, tweet the #Deal30 hashtag and follow the @AAdvantage account to enter for a chance to win 30,000 AAdvantage miles.
Video ads are available via all three ways brands buy ads with Pinterest: the self-serve platform aimed at smaller marketers, Pinterest marketing partners that buy ads through the site’s API or through account managers for top-spending advertisers.
The legal distinction between MLMs and traditional pyramid schemes has been characterized by many authorities as a legal fiction. Jurisdictions that retain a legal distinction between MLM pyramid businesses versus illegal pyramid schemes retain said distinction on two key distinguishing features: 1) that MLMs always encompass the sale of actual products/services, while traditional illegal pyramid schemes ordinarily do not (though sometimes they do), and 2) that climbing an MLM pyramid is overwhelmingly statistically improbable (especially to its highest participant levels) but not theoretically impossible, whereas climbing a traditional illegal pyramid scheme is both statistically and theoretically impossible.
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.
One simple way to incorporate hashtags is by identifying popular events to which you can link your business in an authentic way. Remember, these can be everyday, personal events like meals or commutes, as well as wider cultural events, like Valentine’s Day or Chinese New Year.
The innovative search engine company DuckDuckGo has had much success with promoted tweets. Instead of only marketing to current followers, they’ve reached an untouched but interested audience. The same could be true for you and your business.
Ted Rubin has been on so many “best of” lists when it comes to Twitter followers that it’s hard to keep track. Suffice to say, that if you’re looking for the latest about branding, marketing and relationship-building, Ted is the man to follow.
Twitter allows you to reach a larger audience and increase brand awareness. But there are challenges to overcome such as exposing your brand to negative comments, dealing with customer complaints, and remaining visible.
“We’re going to continue to add more third-party measurement providers—the goal is we want this to be verified by the broader ecosystem [and built] the way that video buyers want to buy,” Bidgoli said.
I hope that I have done all that I can to be a good neighbor on Linked In. We all know the marketing mantra that goes people have to like you, then trust you, and then they will buy from you. I’m not doing this just to get something down the road. That’s just the end result that hopefully will come from helping others online.
It’s this approach to Twitter that makes them stand out from the crowd — and it certainly works for their audience. Their head of digital and communities Joe McEwan says that people really connect with their brand because they talk like human beings, without jargon or “technical mumbo jumbo.”
With the average household income per user hitting $109,000, which is much higher than Twitter, Facebook, and the other social networking power houses, you know you are dealing with people who mean business.
Electronic services refer to interactive network services. In the electronic service, the interaction between the customer and the organizations mainly through the network technology, such as using E-mail, telephone, online chat windows for communication. Electronic services are different from traditional services and they are not affected by distance restrictions and opening hours. Digital content marketing through electronic service is usually served together with other channels to achieve marketing purposes including face-to-face, postal, and other remote services. Information companies provide different messages and documents to customers who use multiple search engines on different sites and set up access rights for business groups. These are some channels of digital content marketing.
Takeaway: When used according to best practices, CTA’s can be useful in all aspects of marketing including social media. Don’t underestimate their power. Often, the best way to get people to take action is to ask them to do so.

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
MLMs have been made illegal in some jurisdictions as a mere variation of the traditional pyramid scheme, including in mainland China. In jurisdictions where MLMs have not been made illegal, many illegal pyramid schemes attempt to present themselves as MLM businesses. Given that the overwhelming majority of MLM participants cannot realistically make a net profit, let alone a significant net profit, but instead overwhelmingly operate at net losses, some sources have defined all MLMs as a type of pyramid scheme, even if they have not been made illegal like traditional pyramid schemes through legislative statutes.

With his #AskGaryVee Facebook video series, Vaynerchuk has diversified beyond Twitter, which makes him more of an overall hero in the business and marketing community.
I write for a number of publications. I love to write. I can’t help it. But I have chosen just two to mention on my LinkedIn profile: Huffington Post and Chamber of Commerce. Why these two? Because they both are well-known entities that give me credibility. One showcases my writings about life, nature and the arts. The other showcases my writing about business.
If you want someone’s business, you have to give them value FIRST. Invest the time to learn something about your target (other than their title and industry) so that you can offer them something of value: a link to a couple articles that can help them solve a problem; a free, short white paper about a challenge in their industry and how your company can help or a connection to someone in your network who can help them. Basically, if you want my attention, explain – briefly – how you can make my life easier. Be helpful, not pushy.
Red Bull, which sells a high-energy beverage, has published YouTube videos, hosted experiences, and sponsored events around extreme sports and activities like mountain biking, BMX, motocross, snowboarding, skateboarding, cliff-diving, freestyle motocross, and Formula 1 racing. Red Bull Media House is a unit of Red Bull that “produces full-length feature films for cinema and downstream channels (DVD, VOD, TV).” The Red Bulletin is an international monthly magazine Red Bull publishes with a focus on men’s sports, culture, and lifestyle.
With Sponsored Updates, businesses pay to push their post onto an individual’s LinkedIn feed. This “pay-per-click” or “pay-per-1,000” impression feature offers demographics similar to other social platforms (location, gender and age), but one key differentiation is the ability to customize based on company name, job title, job function, skills, schools and groups. Users can target interested industries, without competing against the noise of other irrelevant companies and messages. A sponsored update can be an excellent way to promote thought-leadership content useful primarily to the targeted audience with a strong call to action. People don’t want to see pure advertising anymore and want something useful for free. By promoting a firm’s content (white paper, guide, etc.) through a LinkedIn Sponsored Update, a firm can target a niche audience, increase website visitors and, if the content is compelling enough, generate sales leads. — Jeremy Durant
