Standing Out

October 22, 2011 § Leave a comment

I just stumbled upon a great way to spend 17 minutes and 5 seconds of my Saturday morning.  Seth Godin’s presentation on the shift in brand marketing is absolutely delightful and invaluable.  If you’ve got 17:05 to spare watch it now.  If you don’t–make time to watch it.  If you care to better understand how the very practice of marketing is shifting, you won’t regret this investment of your time.

Getting Social

October 17, 2011 § Leave a comment

The influence of Social Media on our society as a whole, and on the way we do business, cannot be denied.  Just how much it affects business is something we are all beginning to understand.  We are, all of us, to some degree or other, working on a strategy to focus our efforts on the right Social Media activities to reach our clients.  That is why I found this article so invaluable.  The Nielsen Social Media Report and What It Means to Customer Service by Alison at Assistly was a well-written thought-provoking post, but its link to the Nielsen statistics themselves were the treasure.

Well illustrated, easy to understand, and downright inspirational these statistics are invaluable.  The report has my brain working at a hundred-miles-a-minute on determining just how we will tailor our Social Media efforts to better fit our business niche, using this new insight.  I wouldn’t be surprised if you found it equally as exciting.

At the very least, they are both a worth-while read.

Take a couple of minutes and read the post by Alison, then review the Nielsen statistics.  If you wish to do so, there is even a quick form from Nielsen to fill out in order to download the report as a .PDF.

Enjoy!

The Personal Approach

I ran into an exceptional article (through an associate on LinkedIn) and I just had to share it:

60 Ways Personalization is Changing Marketing by Jeanne Hopkins, on HubSpot Blog.

It’s a quick-read and well worth the time.  If marketing to your clients in a manner which enhances and reinforces the client-provider relationship is important to you, then take a couple of minutes and gain from the insights this article provides.
