Okay – people keep telling you, the news keeps telling you, marketers (not really people) keep telling you that social media is the next big thing. And your first well advised response is (or should be) WHY?
Today's social media highlight is Technorati.
What they say:
Technorati was founded to help bloggers to succeed by collecting, highlighting, and distributing the online global conversation. As the leading blog search engine and most comprehensive source of information on the blogosphere, we index more than 1.5 million new blog posts in real time and introduce millions of readers to blog and social media content.
Since Social Media (or social networking) is about engagement [at least I think it is. You can say otherwise in our Facebook Discussion linked below]. So, you won't really ever get it right unless you do just that.
Today's cool web tool of the day is Digsby. Five Stars. Two Thumbs Up.
What they say:
IM + Email + Social Networking = Digsby.
What we say:
In a nutshell, Digsby is Outlook for your IM accounts (and email, and social network accounts). It's great! Keep up with your personal and professional accounts and contacts in one easy place. It will notify you when your friends on Facebook and Linked in leave you messages or update their wall or profile. Digsby hasn't been integrated with Twitter yet, which is strange. But be on the look out for it.
Defining social media as hot today is so yesterday…but it still hasn't lost its relevancy. And won't. Sure, there's a lot of clutter and hype (Twitter loses 6 out of ever 10 users every month – giving it's 1400% quarterly growth a bit of a petina) but knowing how to use and harnass Social Media (and other Web 2.0 technologies) is a must do if you really want to get the word out about your business.
No matter what size your website or company is, SEO and Internet Marketing must be performed on an ongoing basis in order to achieve the best results. Every month there will be more competitors seeking to move in on your position and bump you down, and it is up to you and your SEO team to raise the bar on your competitors and maximize your rank and visibility in the search engines, and continually increase the flow of valuable customers through your doors.
