'Time and money.  These are the two things that always seem to be in short supply when it comes to marketing.  With a little more time – the thinking goes – programs could be fine-tuned for maximum impact, and with a little more funding they could reach more audiences or penetrate existing audiences more deeply.

    You can then embed your video to you blog or website, post on Twitter and Facebook, or send your video by email. I came across this cool tool recently called Google Search Stories Video Creator. It’s been around a few months but it’s new to me. With online video being a popular, growing trend in online marketing, this tool provides a quick, accessible and fun way of promoting services, products or events. Or, you might want to use it for personal greetings or to promote a special occasion such as birthdays or a party. First, write your story. Lastly, preview your video.

    [Blog] Online & mobile disaster relief efforts for Japan
    Twitter’s  Hope140 blog provides information on Twitter-related resources. There was a question on an ASAE listserve last week from a Japanese AMC looking for online/mobile examples of what associations and nonprofits could do to help with Japanese relief efforts following the earthquake a couple of weeks ago. I scoured my Reader and fired off a few links (including some about social networks and tech companies and startups); and it seemed like a good idea to repost them here with a couple of additional ones I’ve seen since.

    My identity can’t be stolen – I only have to Facebook, Tweet, blog or point to a YouTube video or Flickr photo to show who I am. Online social gaming company, Rockyou with 32 million gamers, and $129,000,000 of funding, got fined $250,000 for revealing the usernames and passwords of their online community members, and putting at risk their webmail (Gmail, Yahoo etc) accounts. Oh and they fibbed about their security, compromised by a hack that’s been around ten years. That would be us. The only things produced in social media sites are members (members produce the rest).

    I’m fond of telling organizations who question whether they should allow negative comments on their blogs that their questioning is faulty. Invite them to the next press conference, connect with them on LinkedIn, and let them add comments on your blog. There is a stigma in our society that we only are friends with people who make us laugh and cry. We’d rather befriend people who have drinks with us, remember our birthdays, and know when something is wrong without our needing to say anything. But you know who you should also befriend?

From what I’ve read so far, as well as my own experiences, I’m inclined to agree with the author. I’ve never had much faith in advertising, mainly because so much of it is so inane and kooky that I wonder how anyone can take it seriously.

    Some of the better ways to distribute your expertise are through a blog like this, a YouTube channel , or a Facebook Page. They do charge for access to the blogs, which for the most part is for the superfans – and that’s not me. When you treat your friends and advocates as customers, some will become customers. Those that don’t may spread your message to future buyers. The old model is treating customers like royalty, while encouraging others (via marketing) to become customers so that they can enjoy the same preferential treatment. Here’s an example.

    [Blog] Marketers as Movement-Makers
    In fact, we don’t consume popular culture anymore, we co-create it, by deconstructing plot twists in elaborate blog posts, by contributing to extensive fan wikis that delve into the motivations of each character, by documenting 500 page game walk-throughs, and by creating our own parallel narrative in virtual worlds and alternative reality games built around films and TV shows. Here’s a narrative I am trying to develop: 1. From Moments to Movements. No Trust, No Relevance, No Logo. In the last year, I have done 30+ workshops with. Social Messages, Not Social Media.

    [Blog] It’s More About the Social Than It Is About the Media
    When you consider the amount of time we spend tweeting, updating status, checking in, watching YouTube videos, reading blogs, reviewing on Yelp and all the rest, the natural question (and one that will asked by interplanetary visitors, ultimately) becomes “Don’t we have anything better to do?&# Tweet Sure, the gadgets and gizmos and the apps and androids of social media make it more convenient for us to interact with one another, and with brands. But it’s not really about the bits and bytes and data and Dick Costolo, is it? That’s the most important “logy&#.

    [Blog] Is Twitter Crossing the Line Between Useful and Creepy
    Image via Wall Street Journal blog. 'In this edition of The Baer Facts, I talk with  Kyle Lacy  of  ExactTarget  about Twitter’s new Nearby feature  that will give users the option of seeing tweets from other users in the vicinity. Is This a Feature or a Freak-Out? Note that users can opt-out of this feature (which is still in the testing phase), the same way that Twitter members can choose to not pass geographic data along with their tweets.

    [Blog] KLM’s Social Flight of Fancy
    We also do a fair amount of work in the travel industry and so when we saw a series of recent blog posts from Dutch airline KLM detailing its social media strategy we could not pass up the opportunity to review it here.
