Social Media

Social Media: You might be surprised to know that five main companies, the biggest of those companies being Facebook – dominate the world of social media. Aside from the infamous Facebook website and mobile app, Facebook also owns Instagram and Whatsapp. In total Facebook.com is worth over $190 billion – it was founded in 2004, and has over 1 billion monthly users globally. Instagram and Whatsapp swell Facebook’s global monthly user figures to close to two billion – that’s just crazy!

Next on the list is the mighty Google – they own the Google Plus platform, along with YouTube, which Google purchased back in 2006. Google has a combined total of 1.54 billion active monthly users.

The third biggest name in the world of social media is Twitter, with 271 million active monthly users. LinkedIn follows twitter, with 187 million active monthly users, and finally Yahoo (who own Flickr and Tumblr).

Social media startups are still coming thick and fast, with the latest trend being image sharing. Sites like Pinterest and We Heart It are becoming increasingly popular – as are websites and apps like Snapchat, Ask FM and Kik messenger. Although these sites are universally popular, they appeal more to younger age brackets, key demographics in the battle for social media users.

Facebook tried to woo Snapchat – like they did with Instagram and Whatsapp– but the $3 billion offered by Facebook to the app’s owners was rejected. Social media is big business, but most of the deals and handshakes go on behind the scenes – leaving social media users to share, Like, tweet, reblog and publish their innermost thoughts in peace.

1. Twitter: Twitter is the dominant democracy of the social-sharing economy. Relevancy, personality and brevity are the keys to making your voice heard.

2. LinkedIn: LinkedIn is the online analog to old fashioned networking. People – and connections to people – are everything

3. Facebook: Facebook offers personal connection and an enjoyable distraction amidst the work day, but use typically peaks outside of work hours. There’s no shortage of options for analyzing Facebook data. Track the success of your content by date and time to hone in on the best times for engaging your audience.

4. Google+: As Google’s proposed alternative to Facebook, keywords and search engine optimization are central to the appeal of Google+. Link often to content on your own website to direct this search boost where you want it most.

5. YouTube: Google treats its own well, and YouTube is the prime example of this fact. YouTube videos feature prominently in Google

Social Media Strategy

How much time does social media marketing take out of your work day?

It’s no surprise that social media takes up a larger part of a marketer’s day than it did even a year ago. The addition of social networks your company needs to have a presence on and keep updated is growing out of control, leaving many marketers drowning in the increased time and investment required.

However, the massive amount of time marketers are dedicating to social media these days is no indication that they are doing it right. In fact, I would bet that in most cases the more time a marketer spends on social media, the less likely they are to actually have a strategy at all. Many marketers don’t know how to tackle the mountain that is social media and wind up wasting a lot of time haphazardly updating and monitoring their social presence.

Social media strategy is the deployment and development of modern strategic plans for social media. A Social media strategy incorporates these new ways of communication where media is not only broadcast but also shared, commented, opined edited or modified by the public at large.

A winning social media strategy is all about working smarter, not harder. Unless you are an enterprise level company, all you need to truly rock your social media is 30 minutes a day. With automation tools like Pardot to take care of many of the time-consuming and repetitive tasks, all that you need is a well defined daily plan and some self discipline.
