    [Blog] The Steps to Managing a Social Media Crisis
    We’ve all seen examples of CEOs and VPs posting videos to blogs, YouTube and other social channels explaining a situation. We all fear the dreaded social media crisis, and it is important to have a clear cut policy in place when it comes to managing the situation. Have you ever looked at your overall social business strategy and asked yourself if you have a clear-cut set of steps to follow in the event of a social media crisis? Few brands do. No one likes to think about the devastating social media crisis but it is imperative that we do. Figure Out What Happened. Defense. Offense.

    [Blog] Questioning the value of the term Base or Bottom of the Pyramid aka the BoP
    Siim Esko wrote a short piece on his blog BoP Strategies after a conversation we recently had. But Aneel Karnani talks about the destitute poor and how the BoP is misconstrued. It’s apples and oranges. Its apples and oranges indeed but by only referring to them as fruit, that is, the BoP, one tends to forget that this acronym actually refers to the more than 4 if not 5 billion of the entire planet’s population. And they are not all alike in any way, shape or form.  We don’t take the whole World and consider that our market. We know that.

While the tone of blog posts and other social media content is informal (not “corporate speak&# ) it should nonetheless be professional. Why is having a social media policy in place so critical? Because virtually 100% of companies are now involved in social media—whether they acknowledge it or not. If no one else is discussing a company, its employees almost certainly are.

What happened to eBay is no surprise, and they aren’t alone.

    Since using Twitter more strategically, traffic to my blog from Twitter has increased to 14% (up 10%), and continues to grow.  So this method works for me. In my case, I only use Twitter for information from a search standpoint and value the larger (yet still relevant) following to increase my reach when sharing blog articles. If you are promoting products, services or a website/blog, I believe that it makes sense to grow your following as large as you can (of course in a strategic, relevant way). Which one is the proper “Twitterquette”? However, be weary and smart.

    [Blog] 5 Tips to Create Amazing Content for Your Website
    Create your own blogs, videos, podcasts or ebooks and offer them as gated content to change a visitor into a lead. It would not be wrong to say that content is the lifeblood of Internet Marketing, and when it comes to creating content for company website, expectations are even more. Your website content is what that determines the success and failure of your site and ultimately the future of your business. This is because your website is the first customer contact point and compromising with its quality means compromising with your lead conversion rates. This is where SEO lies.

    [Blog] The Goal Post: Why Goals Matter More than Ever
    Overheard in Vegas at BlogWorld Expo: “I just started a blog and I’m excited to see where it will lead me.&#. Nobody really knew where the medium of blogging would lead—we were all quite happy to let thing evolve and see where we ended up. There was actually some sense in this approach: blogging was still evolving, and because the space wasn’t overly crowded or competitive, many bloggers were swept almost accidentally into amazing opportunities. Posts on the blog were critiques, rants, and personal attacks on other key people in the niche (including me).

    [Blog] One Big Traffic Secret
    That means you didn’t really read the first sentence of this post. I’m not saying what you should do. I’m not saying what’s better or worse. I’m not telling you how often to write on your blog. I’m telling you that there’s a reason why the top blogs on the Internet all post more than five times a day. Tags: blogging business I’ll tell you one thing I know: the more you post, the more traffic you get. It’s helpful if the stuff you post is worth something. I try hard to make that always the case. All of them. Not likely.

    [Blog] A Different Kind Of Green On St. Patrick’s Day
    You could even forward this blog post to anyone you think might be interested, or be interested in spreading the word, and ask them to share it. Disclosure and incentive: Zodiak is apparently working on a finder/referral fee for people who help cast a family that make it to the show. I don’t know the details of it, but since there’s a wee chance this blog post could qualify, you should know of it… and you should know of it for yourself too! There are a ton of Irish-themed events taking place all over the world and, most likely, in your neck of the woods today.

    [Blog] When You Have Nothing Unique to Say…
    Originally at: Blog Tips at ProBlogger. I’ve got nothing unique to say. It has all been said before. There are so many people who are smarter than me. Why would anyone listen to me? Have you ever found yourself thinking like this? If so – you’re not alone. At one point or another most bloggers do, and many would be bloggers have been stopped in their tracks by them. Here’s the deal: Nobody has lived your life before. Nobody has your story. Nobody has faced and overcome what you’ve overcome. Nobody thinks in exactly the same way that you do.
