How to Build a Following Using Other People's Content

Back in December 2014, I read an article and listened to the Podcast on SME where Guy Kawasaki explained how he uses NPR model as part of his Content Marketing strategy  http://goo.gl/IphAkZ

Fast forward 6 months and notice this totally unscientific mini-test that shows how I got 3 repins and 3 likes and 2 new followers on Pinterest by simply repinning one of my favorite SMM experts +Rebekah Radice classic branded Pins.

Now I know these are itty bitty numbers, but the concept holds water (e.g.) I'm building a following using other people's great content on the social web. Try it yourself, follow Rebekah on Pinterest, and do like I did and RePin a few of her excellent Pins and you'll probably get repinned, likes and a few new follower, lust like I did.

So Rebekah, are you a Merlot kinda girl or is Pino more your style ;-)

Why I am on G+ so much

I had to explain to a corporate colleague, yesterday, why I spend so much time and energy on G+ engaging and interacting, putting up original content (when my website should be really benefiting from it) and sharing a lot of original information and insights (which should logically be kept for my books which bring me money.) 

It was a fair question which became the initiation point for a long discussion into which were also drawn his line manager and the company's Corporate Communications expert. 

I had to delve deep into my own motivations in order to actually make sense to people who don't use G+ and see social networks only as a marketing tool. As the discussion evolved I used their Whiteboard to sketch a few connections and relationships. I began to explain that there is a high level or reciprocity within G+ that is not evidenced in Twitter or even Facebook despite the fact that the latter is mostly close friends and family.

Once I started to look at it through the prism of Trust (which is the subject of an upcoming book which has me buried in research as well as writing) things began to fall into place.

What's more, the usual 'soft' platitudes of making friends with people you have never met and actually trusting them, suddenly began to make more sense.

Everything here is a contract of sorts, running on Transactional Trust and governed by the Reciprocity Response (https://goo.gl/mPAJWc). Transactional Trust, in turn, is made up of three other different types of trust, each of which has its own key points.

Not only does this help all of us interact in ways which provide mutual gains but it allows us to interact with different people, differently, calculate 'trust' differently for everyone and differently for each situation while still understanding that it is trust we use. 

Trust is the key ingredient in establishing and strengthening connections between individuals which then begin to figure into such other concepts as identity, self-worth and the establishment of one's presence. In semantic search trust is the key value ascribed in the interaction and engagement between Entities. 

When I got home my Whiteboard doodle became the diagram you see below. Have one awesome Saturday. :)

How to Manage Your Social Media Presence

Every 90 days or so, I will Google my name to see which social profiles Google, Bing and Yahoo serve up in their search results. This gives me a good idea which social profiles my prospective customers are likely to find, click and review before they decide to follow me and/or engage with me on the social web.

Whether you’re seeking a new Job Opportunity on LinkedIn or you’re a small business owner or a Social SEO Consultant wanting to showcase your service offerings, it’s very easy for a recruiter or a prospective client to socially vet you in a matter of minutes. It’s best to do these searches signed into your Google account and incognito mode so as to minimize personalization results. This is how to determine which social channels are your most influential social channels.

DUIAttorney Photos on Twitter https://goo.gl/Sm3nPg

We know that Tweets with Images get more clicks, retweets and shares that text only Tweets. We know that #hashtags  on Twitter is how social monitoring tools find content for its users. 

Testing if using a naming convention on images for a DUI Attorney client will have any influence on his social signals and shares?

A Twitter search for #duiattorney  then selecting the photos tab shows this panel of photos. 2 of the images are his recent Tweets. Will be curious to see if this panel is the same or similar in 48 hours?

How to use Periscope on an Android

+Ana Hoffman does her usual full court press in giving us the "skinny" on how to use Periscope on an iPhone and an Android mobile device.

#periscope   #tutorial  
 
Can you have more than one Periscope account (and how to switch between them)?

In short, yet. Just like on Twitter, you can choose to have as many Periscope accounts as you have Twitter accounts.

Switching between your Periscope accounts is easy. 

1. Add all your Twitter accounts to your phone (read +Mike Allton's tutorial on how to add multiple Twitter accounts to your phone, if you need help http://tgcafe.it/1JuSypy).

2. Sign out of your current Twitter account (as long as you are signed into Twitter, Periscope will continue to automatically log you in under that account).

3. Log into Periscope under desired Twitter account (look for 'Tap to switch accounts' option at the top of the login page as shown in the screenshot below).
