Cynics beware! 3 examples of how social media can deliver immediate benefits

Cynics beware! 3 examples of how social media can deliver immediate benefits

I recently prepared a presentation for a group of executives on the question of whether or not to embrace social media. The industry in question is certainly a laggard among others, so the team was cynical. I went digging for some examples of how, with little resource, real, tangible returns could be seen. Here were just three of them witnessed by one particular client: LinkedIn The client was encouraged to use the status update feature on LinkedIn to keep his network appraised of compan

5 simple ways to help you get a job in PR

Now, we won’t go back to the Dark Ages when I got a job in PR and was working for travel expenses for 12 months, although that is no bad way to get into the industry. Work experience always helps. I propose 5 far more simple and less painful ways to ensure you at least get further in the interview process. 1/ Firstly, and most incredibly, many applicants who are “really keen and live and breathe social media” are among those that don’t apply via Twitter, or even have a Twitter

3 reasons not to fear social media

3 reasons not to fear social media

There's a lot of chat about how social media has led to a loss of control. No more can PR departments regulate what is written and sit on reams of copy for weeks on end. What a shame. That could be the first reason to embrace, but for the purposes of this post it's just an additional bonus: 1/ Social media is cheap. Let's face it, many tools out there are free. From Social Media Mention (measuring your overall SM profile) to Tweetdeck and Hootsuite, isn't it amazing that all of these incr

3 reasons you should look outside the company for news (or why you should stop churning pointless and irrelevant content)

3 reasons you should look outside the company for news (or why you should stop churning pointless and irrelevant content)

I recall once being told a story by the then editor of Silicon.com news, @WillSturgeon, about the time he received a news release from a PR on his MD client who had just got married. How we laughed, hee hee hee - but the fact is we have all been guilty to lesser, and hopefully much lesser extents of that crime. How many of us are persuaded by the technical team that the new platform or product version really is worthy of its place in the comms plan, or the news has dried up so much that w

How thought leadership and social media = lead generation

How thought leadership and social media = lead generation

Late last year we kicked off a Twitter campaign to share best practice experience from our marketing automation, data and social media divisions. It offered bite-sized tips across all elements of the marketing mix to drive the adoption of what we call ‘joined-up-marketing’ strategies. Effectively, it provided some guidance how to plan campaigns to maximise their impact on business objectives, and primarily the bottom line. @CleverTouch issued a daily #CTtip to our network of Twitter fo

Why social media must change perceptions on lead generation (and goodbye to the hard sell)

Why social media must change perceptions on lead generation (and goodbye to the hard sell)

I recently read an article in Money Marketing on social media for the financial services sector. Admittedly, the article was addressing a sector, which for a host of reasons, is slower to adopt and sees more downsides to the technology, than us less cautious marketers. Anyway what prompted this blog post was the response from an IFA, who when asked whether social media (specifically Twitter) was key for driving business, answered categorically no, it would not have any impact as a sales g

5 quick fire ways social media can drive your business

5 quick fire ways social media can drive your business

1.      Customer Service & Support BT is an excellent example of ‘Social Service’, @BTcare. Your C-levels execs get this too, having read all about the Net Promoter score, they now see it as a major predictor of ongoing company success. Just think how a negative sentiment can impact your business, for every positive comment an organisation receives, a negative one can outweigh it by a factor of x 2.5-3.5. For a bit of fun, try TweetFeel. We compared British Airways to Virgin
