Case Study on E-Reputation: Pinterest in Europe

Most entrepreneurs know that registering a brand’s name is not something you do off the hook.

First, you think about your brand’s name in order to find the perfect one, the one that will be easily recognizable, remembered and will be meaningful to your target audience. Then, you hurry to register it to maker sure nobody else will use it. That’s for the basics.

Unfortunately, new entrepreneurs have ideas but the lack the basics. The kind of problem Pinterest is now experiencing in EuropeBut this type of case highlights new habits.

Should You Buy Books on Social Media?

In the digital age, being successful on social media has a profound impact on business, personal branding, and other areas. There are thousands of social media tips from thousands of voices out there and it’s easy to get lost in the ocean of advice.

If you’re looking for the best advice, it can be easy to get lost in all the noise.

Your first reaction might be to buy some books on the subject, but knowing what to choose from in the countless number of authors can leave you still looking for answers.

Don’t get me wrong. I have a few social media books on my bookshelf at home, but I was buying blind and some haven’t really helped me gain a better understanding of social media that I was hoping for.

The beauty of social media is that those who are mastering it are on most platforms and very often freely share what they have learned.

For many restaurant owners Twitter is a great channel for low-budget word of mouth marketing. So why is it that when I talk to restaurant owners across the country the successes they see on Twitter are small? I am discouraged seeing a graveyard of abandoned restaurant Twitter accounts.

Why You Should Opt-In To Google Endorsements

 

Why Google Shared Endorsements are a Good Thing

Ninety two percent of consumers around the world say they trust earned media, such as word-of-mouth and recommendations from friends and family, above all other forms of advertising, according to a 2012 study by Nielsen.

Recently, Google updated its terms of service so your friends, family and others may see your profile name and photo, and content like reviews you share or the ads you +1’d.

6 Ways Nonprofits Can Use SnapChat

I’ve been writing about how non-profit organizations can leverage social media for quite a while. The industry, as a whole, has truly matured in 2013 in its ability to use the platforms available to market important causes and advocate for critical campaigns.

Could it be that it’s time to look beyond the core of Facebook, Twitter and Youtube? Maybe our industry should take a few risks by integrating some of the newer platforms available?

For organizations just getting comfortable with the basics, I’d suggest sticking to developing their core brand and building their communities before venturing into unchartered territories. But for those organizations that have a solid community and are interested in engaging the millennial population, here are some suggestions on how Snapchat may be the ideal platform.
