Supersize Me Not


Twitter, 140 characters, is a quick easy communication tool. Consumers now use smartphones while watching TV.

Are we a nation of ADD consumers? No. We just like information in "bite-sized" portions.

We sample, we nibble around the edges on content. There's even a Sunday morning business show that hypes the "elevator pitch". These bites can engage consumers, so that they come back for seconds.

Glenn Engler thinks that snack-sized content is the way to make the consumer hungry for your product in this Marketing Prof article http://bit.ly/qRqskL

The Internet: Breeding Activism or Slacktivism?


Internet users are volunteering at a greater rate than non-internet users (80% vs. 56%).

Not only do they belong to organizations, they give significantly more time and money, and take leadership roles more often. Recent events such as the revolutions in the Middle East and Africa were fed by young adults online.

A recent Pew study found that a large majority (over 80%) of social network users participate in a voluntary group. A World Vision study found that teens using social networks were more actively involved with charities.

Keeping Your Fans on the Bandwagon


For brands, Facebook and Twitter are great entry points to attract consumers, keeping them engaged is the next real challenge.

Consumers are most interested in deals, but they also expect brands to help in problem solving and receive customer feedback. Equally important is what consumers are not looking for...irrelevant content and too many messages.

eMarketer reports on a recent Cone Consumer New Media Study on the reasons why fans stay and leave brand social sites. Make sure your social media campaign keeps the potential consumer with this report at http://bit.ly/gVFqNz

Email Wins over Other Social Media


Email is still the preferred vehicle for sharing content online (especially for consumers over the age of 35). More than half of all referrals through the "Tell-a-Friend" widget used email to share content.

"But", cries the marketer, "we get more click throughs on Facebook and Twitter!" True, but the secret lies in the fact that emails sent through the "Tell-a-Friend" widget include the full message, so there is no need for the recipient to do a click through.

Email also leads to more engagement, more pages viewed and more conversions. This recent study by Chadwick Martin Bailey backs up an August study conducted by Social Twist with the same results. Check out this eMarketer article for the facts http://bit.ly/9Da3Th

twitter success models


So what can twitter do for your products?

Social media doesn't create fans, it connects fans. Craig Arthur, Director of the Wizard of Ads/Australia, observes that successful twitter campaigns begin with a highly desirable product at a low price point. Arthur notes that limited availability of the product increases buzzworthiness with twitter. 

Many businesses will have challenges sustaining any real success with twitter as a marketing vehicle if the business desires to control the message or outcome. Arthur notes, "Two entirely different things are being called social media: One is wild and organic and comes from the customer's experience. The other is calculated and comes from the business owner." Arthur delineates the difference: "Advertising is where the business owner controls the message. Social Media is where the customer controls the message."
