5 Twitter Facts and Figures for 2014 You Need to Know 
#twitter   #twittertips   #twittermarketing   #socialmedia   #infographic  The social media network that was never meant to be a social network, Twitter, celebrated its eighth birthday in March, 2014. The now microblogging giant has come a long way since co-founder Jack Dorsey’s first tweet, “just setting up my twttr” back on March 21, 2006.
It is now a household name, and the favorite network of celebrities and media outlets.
Twitter has become the fastest way to break news. We are seeing more television programs display their Twitter handles and relative hashtags. The power of Twitter was witnessed by millions when Ellen DeGeneres tweeted “the best photo ever” at this years Oscars that has garnered over 3.4 million retweets and counting.
Twitter went public in November 2013. The much ballyhooed IPO was a big hit as TWTR opened at $26.00 and closed at $44.90 in its first day of trading. Today Twitter trades at $44.60 despite a net loss of $34 million in its most recent quarterly report.
While Twitter has become an incredible brand, it must find a way to show profitability in the future. We don’t want the little blue bird to fly away.

10 Tips to to Double Your Facebook Likes
#Facebookmarketing   #Socialmediamarketing   #infographic  
When social media started raising it's head as a business marketing tool, there were just a handful of social networks. Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn were the main protagonists.

Today we have a plethora of social networks and visual networks such as Instagram, Pinterest and Vine to distract us amongst thousands.

With over 1.3 billion users Facebook is the largest social media network that you can't ignore. This means that you need to keep learning how to use its rapidly evolving ecosystem. The changes to Facebook in just the last 5 years are significant. It has gone public, concentrated on mobile (it just bought the Mobile messaging platform Whatsapp for $19 billion) and is squeezing users to pay for attention. This means that to gain reach you need to seriously consider advertising. This wasn't necessary a couple of years ago. You built a tribe of Facebook followers and kept the updates rolling.

So if you want to gain attention quickly on Facebook you now need to pay. One easy way to do that is to click on the "Boost Post" button. Boosting your posts on Facebook is so easy to use and can be done in a couple of clicks once you have registered your credit card details. This means you can use this feature to increase online visibility and also grow your Facebook fan base.

But paying for your Facebook marketing and "likes" isn't a mandatory evil. You can still grow your Facebook community organically. It will take longer but it is free....Read more of this article

#Contentmarketing   #contentmarketingtips   #contentstrategy   #marketingtips   #marketingtips  
Social media marketing is still cool but there is a new kid on the block. The name…”content marketing”

So when you think about it, what drives traffic on the social web are two key things. Great content in all its multi-media glory and the social networks that distribute it at high velocity. The better the content and the larger and more engaged the social networks, the more visible  your brand  becomes. That creates brand awareness, inquiries, leads and sales.
It is about being ubiquitous.

You’ve also probably heard about content marketing a million times over but how much effort do you really put into yours? Are you using every method that you should? Check out these top 10 tactics you “must” use in your content marketing strategy and get inspired…

5 Steps to a Damn Good Content Marketing Strategy  
#contentmarketing   #Contentmarketingstrategy   #contentmarketingtips   #contentstrategy   #contentcreation  
Standing on the sidelines of the digital world can be daunting for businesses. You know you need to participate with a website, blog and content but for many the social web is seen as a necessary evil rather than an opportunity.

How do I stand out online when there are over 900 million websites, nearly 200 million blogs and 144 billion emails sent every day.
This torrent of data screams for attention. You feel insignificant.
Also many questions flood your mind, what technology do I use, how do I market my business online and where do I start? The list goes on and on.

Quite often these paralyzing perturbations stop you from making that first step.  The seeming complexity and overwhelming noise is perceived as a distraction from the real job of running a business.
The challenges seem insurmountable.

The 15 Most Common WordPress Mistakes to Avoid
#wordpress   #wordpresstips   #Blogging   #bloggingtips   #bloggingtipsandtricks  
A very old and famous saying, “to err is human and to forgive is divine“, is absolutely true. We all make mistakes, because none of us is perfect. Whether it’s real life or WordPress, mistakes happen everywhere. To commit a mistake is not a crime, however, not learning from it and not trying to repeat it again definitely is. Everyone learn from their mistakes, but it’s much better to learn from the others’ mistakes.
In the case of WordPress, the primary focus of a novice is to set everything up and get things running as soon as possible. In this hurry, there are quite a few things that are ignored which may lead to numerous security vulnerabilities and affect your blog/site in the long run. In this article, we’ve outlined 15 of the most common WordPress mistakes that almost every one of us makes in the beginning.
Hopefully, everyone will use this guide to avoid the same blunders and make their WordPress site better, faster and more secure and of course a success.

The Top 25 WordPress Plugins
#Blogging   #wordpressplugins   #wordpress   #Infographic  
Blogging wasn’t that cool 5 years ago. It was for geeks. Since then geeks have become sexy. Now blogging is done by almost everyone.
I think there is a link between the two!
WordPress is “the” platform if you want to take your blogging to the next level. Sure you can do Tumblr and Blogger…. but in the “I am serious about blogging” category, WordPress is the “go to” platform

One of the best things about WordPress is the global community that creates plugins that make it sing and dance.  Want to optimize your content and posts for search engines… there is a free plugin for that. Need a contact form…again there is a plugin already developed for you.
Other benefits include a vast global pool of experts that can design, develop and optimize your blog or website, then there is its low cost and the flexibility.

So what are the top 25 WordPress plugins?

The Social Media Marketing Secrets of Smart Savvy Bloggers
#Blogging   #bloggingtips   #contentmarketing   #Socialmediamarketing  
The success of a blog can be judged on different aspects, but engagement will be a dominant factor in achieving the desired outcome. Using social media marketing to promote your blog can be highly effective, and your ‘followers’ or ‘likes’ should be considered as important metrics.
However, ensuring that you truly engage with these people, across all platforms, is equally important and often overlooked.
Seth Godin is widely viewed as an arbiter on marketing issues, he has repeatedly referenced Kevin Kelly’s ‘1000 True Fans’ article. Kelly’s principle message is that a ‘true’ fan is of greater value than a lesser fan, and that engagement helps nurture ‘true’ fans. He states that:
‘The genius of the True Fan model is that the fans are able to move an artist away from the edges of the long tail to a degree larger than their numbers indicate.’
His article focuses on upcoming artists aiming to sustain a living, but the methods can be applied to the development of any blog. If you’re dealing with larger numbers, or are representing a corporation, then you should still pay heed to these core values with the same sincerity.

Couldn't agree more with point #2 +Jeff Bullas. Too many people take a uniform approach to social media. But every social network has a different audience, with different behaviors and different expectations.

What works for the foodies on Pinterest, won't work for the fitness buffs on Instagram.

Thanks for the read!
