How is social media changing the concept of branding?

How is social media changing the concept of branding?
The entry of social media into the Internet marketing world has changed the trend of brand-consumer dealings completely. Social networking websites have a pivotal role in this interaction which has made brand-building more accessible. But again, social media alone cannot be used for brand building. It has to be tactfully combined with paid media to make a far-reaching trade name reputation. The era of using TV ads, celebrity ambassadors and multi-million dollars' worth print media ads in isolation to promote your brand are long gone. Today, any brands worth their salt are taking a long, hard look at their marketing strategies and rethinking their efforts to integrate multimedia and multiple channels of communication and social media is beginning to take center-stage. Social Media Promotion Brand Equity, or the perception of an individual on a product's appeal, is tough to manipulate physically; only a good marketing strategy can make a difference in your product's sale. Of course, an adequate budget is compulsory in this case; but, expect to see your reach hit new highs. At the end of the day, your customers need to be convinced about the true value of your product.

Employees As Brand Advocates On Social Media

Employees As Brand Advocates On Social Media
For any business, big or small, it is the peak level of satisfaction, if its employees can speak on a company's behalf that is, project themselves as its brand advocates! This is possible if the employees are out of the fear, and are clear and conscious about what they are allowed to speak. How about a marketing strategy that can engage the employees of an Organization to get involved actively, and advertise their respective companies and its policies, with a sense of pride and satisfaction towards the work?  Advocate Employees: The employees need opportunities, but before that, it is up to the companies to decide whether their employees are to be censored, or they should be clearly guided about the confidentiality, so as to make wise decisions themselves. If the company decides to go with the latter, there must be an undefined level of confidence over the employees that need not be repeated every now and them. The employees, to a great extent, will realize their duty shouldering the company's repute. There can be an online management strategy in place that can track any proprietary information being shared off limits. The directions like "Do Not Talk About ........" are likely...

How to Write an eBook: Eight Steps to Make it Easy

How to Write an eBook: Eight Steps to Make it Easy
Writing an eBook is much like writing a book in general. The steps are pretty much the same. The difference may be the visuals as some eBooks may have more than regular printed books, depending on the type of books of course. The following are eight steps that will give you an idea of what is involved from start to publishing. Choose a Topic As I’ve talked about before, it’s better to choose a topic that you know: one that you can put your own thoughts and ideas into. Also choosing a topic may be harder to do than most think. (Read my “Where to Find Inspiration for Blog Posts Topics” for more help.) Research This is the same as finding a good location for a business. So, instead of “location, location, location” it’s “research, research, research”. Make sure your topic is thoroughly researched, and you have as many points from beginning to end that you want to share as you can. Organize Your Details Make sure you get everything together with everything you need. Outline and figure out the order in which you want to write your eBook. You need a plan before you start writing. If you don’t...

Where to Find Inspiration for Blog Post Topics

Where to Find Inspiration for Blog Post Topics
This should seemingly be an easy question to answer, but in reality it is not as easy as it seems. As any writer, blogger or journalist knows, finding a topic may be the hardest part of writing—next to actually writing it, of course. No, I’m not saying that writing is the hardest part, but for some it may be. Often it may be easier for some to write than to find a topic and vice versa, but everything always depends on everything, including the writer him- or herself. Some may not even think that finding a topic may be a difficult task, but just think back to high school when you had to write a paper. Even with the choices are narrowed down for you, was it easy to choose? Probably not. So, now that we’re older, does that mean it gets any easier? Maybe not. What to Write Well first, it is always easier to write about what you know. The information flows more naturally from your head onto paper (or type). This doesn’t mean you have to be an expert and know everything but having experience with it may help you learn more information and put it together....

And it is a real test of a graphic designer to come up with an attention grabbing logo. Here are some essential tips of creating an effective logo: What is Logo?

It even helps to develop trust of a consumer in the products of the company i.e. brand loyalty. Whenever we hear the brand name 'Nike', the tick, its logo, pops up immediately in our mind, which depicts the capability of Nike's logo designer who has indeed created a masterpiece as the tick is carved in everyone's mind Norms of Logo Designing A logo must be describable, which means whenever a common man sees the logo, the brand name should pop up instantaneously. For example, the curvy M of McDonald's; whenever we see this yellow colored M, we immediately know it's for McDonalds. Secondly, it should be effective without color, even if we see...

To Win On Pinterest, Unlearn The Social Rules

To Win On Pinterest, Unlearn The Social Rules
Pinterest is the new poster boy of social media. However, it is interesting to note that despite the hype and hoopla around it, a good number of social media marketers are leery of this new platform. They have come to realize the fact that the Keep Calm and Pin Ontraditional rules of social media marketing do not apply here. This is a new platform and to be able to succeed in this platform, they need to unlearn whatever they have learnt in their journey of becoming a successful social media marketer.
 
Here in this article, we are going to give a roundup of rules that as a marketer you need to follow religiously while promoting their brands on this fast moving platform - 
 
 
Pinterest Is Not About Conversation, It Is About Communication – Unlike other social media platforms, Pinterest is about communicating with your targeted audience. In fact, Pinterest uses are not at all interest in verbal communication. Spend one or two hours on this visually enticing platform and you will come to realize this amazing fact. Here people share beautiful images, pin whatever they like and rarely take the pain to comment on pins of others.
 
So, if you are into the belief of applying your Facebook marketing approach to Pinterest, a disaster is for sure lurking large in the backdrop.  You simply cannot get people engaged to your brand by sharing asking some silly or interesting question. Here the only way you can get connected to targeted audience by sharing some really interesting photos and they do not necessarily have to related to your brand. And please do not have silly expectation that people will post comments against your pins.
 
Pinterest is Not for Everyone – You simply cannot think of joining every social media platform that comes galloping by.  You need to focus on areas where your brand can shine rather than wasting your time and money on all of them and then realizing that your marketing efforts are going nowhere. So, accept the fact that your brand cannot have presence on social media channels. Pinterest has a feminine charm and you need to accept this fact and move on. So, if your brand sells something that is exclusively for the boys, you need to give goodbye kiss to it and probably find your solace in Gentlemint.com. 
 
Pinterest is About Traffic - Unlike facebook that believes in retaining its visitors, Pinterest lets you drive traffic to your website. So, whenever a user clicks on your Pin, he/she will get transported to your website. So, I hope you can realize the true potential of Pinterest. Stay true to the nature of your business and don’t ever try to trick visitors by getting themselves land on pages that have no similarities with the image that you have posted on PInterest. The trick lies in making the visitors click on the images and this can be done by posted visually engaging images that convey a message.  
 
Pins Makes up Pinterest – When you are marketing on Facebook, you simply cannot post more than 4 updates in a day because it might irritates your targeted audience. But things are different in Pinterest. There is no EdgeRank thing here and what is all the more interesting is that you can post as many as 30 images on your board and that too without making yourself appear like a spammer.
 
So, these are four vital marketing lessons that you need to learn before you can think of making a rendezvous with Pinterest.
