Right now, there are more than 414 million people who use LinkedIn throughout the world. Every second, two more people join LinkedIn. If you’re not on LI - or even if you have a LI account but don’t use it at least once a week - you are depriving yourself of networking and business opportunities, and it is ultimately harming your professional image.
If you have the resources, you may have even hired a social media specialist to run your various profiles. But is your strategy really working? There are some business owners out there who would talk about how many followers they get or how many likes they have, but those numbers don’t necessarily equate to an increase in sales. Here are some measurements you can use to determine if your social media marketing strategy is really working.
If marketing were a Medieval Kingdom, the marriage of Neuromarketing and Social Media would be akin to an alliance between England and Spain. And while neuroscience has been around for a while, like a quiet heir waiting in line for the throne, social media has come of age with glory and pomp.
This alliance has granted us social media marketers, the possibility of better engaging our potential customers and increasing conversion rates.
Social media contests are a great way to spread the buzz and get your fans and audience excited, engaged and talking about you. You’ll also find that a successful contest will produce an exponential increase in reach and overall talk about your brand.

There are so many on the internet these days you don’t even know where to start. So where do you start? That’s the question I suppose everyone asks themselves. But before I continue let’s just get something straight, you shouldn’t be on every platform! It’s so easy to create so many accounts but why would you want to be on Pinterest when your a Doctor.
Ask yourself these 3 important questions.
Let’s have a rundown on a few popular networks so you see what I mean.
That equates to more than 40 million small businesses on Facebook in total - an increase of 10 million businesses from last year. Thirty million of these Facebook pages are updated regularly.
The facts don’t lie: more and more businesses are joining Facebook and using it as a marketing tool. If your business isn’t one of these 40 million, my best advice is that you should create a Facebook page today or contact us so we can help you set it up right.
But this post isn’t for businesses without Facebook pages - it’s for the businesses with Facebook pages. With increasing competition, you have to make sure that your Facebook page stays relevant, interesting and engaging, or else you risk losing potential customers.
Many businesses may be a bit skeptical about social media. A lot of questions may run through your mind when wondering which social media is the best for you company.
Does it cost? How many posts a day? Some may even think they don’t have time for using social media.
Social platforms are definitely free but if you want to be successful on social media you have to want to invest money on it. If you want to use organic reach just know that it’s extremely limited if you want to get noticed. Imagine you are at a concert, the people who are all the way in the front paid a lot of money to be there, then there’s the middle part of the concert venue where it wasn't as expensive but it’s neither free and you can still see perfectly. Then there’s the free ticket that doesn’t exist unless you win it but that winning ticket is one out of who knows how many others. In the end it’s better to invest in order to be seen on social media platforms. The days of free-and-easy organic social media exposure is long gone!
In a social media environment that is increasingly commercial, content that reflects the best of the human spirit –our impulse to help, empower, and protect, is bound to generate deeper engagement with social media audiences. What this means for your non-profit organization, is that you are in a unique position to harness the power of social media in order to obtain: - Supporters for cause - Donations - Volunteers - Visibility
Still, many organizations are not harnessing the power of Facebook, twitter, and Instagram to reach their goals.
I understand people like you.
Your mind is overloaded with thoughts about work’s important impending tasks, employee performance problems and fantasies about the next piece of equipment you can’t wait to buy. You check your work email while on your breaks and enjoy talking about work to your loved ones and friends. You live, breathe and bleed this business.
Who could blame you? It’s your livelihood. It is the mark you intend to leave on the world.
And while you are engulfed with work, you forget about the everlasting mark your business leaves on the Internet - aka, its online presence.
Someone eventually asks you, “Is your business on Facebook?” Your teenage daughter wonders, “Is your company on Yelp?” A friend tells you that pay-per-click ads really helped his business, and you contemplate if it can help yours.
