Scot Duke2,583Share My Circle The Best of G+It's time again to help out the Newbies to G+ by giving them a leg up on finding the people in G+ who are interactive, responsive and down right COOL!I hear there are a few million more here since my last so I am sure they are probably sitting there scratching their head with a look of confusion on what is going on. I remember when I got here, that was my thoughts. Wish there had been someone then sharing quality Circles.So here is my Inter-circle of real live people. If you are not in this circle here might be why.To be placed in my most cherished circle of friends you have had to: -Be someone I know personally-Have at least made one comment made to any of my posts, -Have a nice headshot photo,-Have a full profile-Make a number of original posts-Understand how social networking works.Sounds simple doesn't it! Well it is and how you should look to building your own circle. Here is your start. If your current circles are not producing the interaction you are looking for you might need to flush them and start over with this one.Warning: If you load this circle into your account to start spamming these people I can only warn you these people are well trained at using the Block for Spam button. Plus, there are a few people from G+ hidden in this circle who are very proud of their creation and I have actually witnessed them removing Knuckleheads like a bouncer at a bar.Have fun socializing..it will pay off ten times more than just gawking or becoming a Knucklehead.2012-03-20 12:07:3131326715

Ivan Dimitrijević3,450SEO - Search Engine Optimization CircleHere's the first part of my SEO circle. 200 SEO consultants, strategists, analysts, experts, gurus, bloggers, writers. In my personal opinion, we can learn a lot from photo - art - creative crew on Google+. They are so well connected and they are willing to share.I think this isn't a case for all kinds of SEO experts and that's bad. There is so many web sites on the world and not so many SEO consultants, we don't have to be selfish and greedy. There is a lot of place for all of us on the web.Share your circles and share your knowledge.Ivan Dimitrijević shared a circle with you.2011-10-01 19:35:4920046618

The International Flag of Planet Earth

Current expeditions in outer space use different national flags depending on which country is funding the voyage. The space travellers, however, are more than just representatives of their own countries. 

They are representatives of planet Earth.


PURPOSE OF THE FLAG

1. To be used while representing planet Earth.

2. To remind the people of Earth that we share this planet, no matter of national boundaries. That we should take care of each other and the planet we live on.

A fantastic idea - here's hoping we can finally unite under one flag.

What is your take on  Facebook's Internet.org?

What is Internet.org exactly?

Facebook's Internet.org is described as a "partnership" and an "initiative," but what is it exactly? (The former FCC chairman was hired yesterday to run it.)

Is it a company? A non-profit? A department within Facebook?

Interesting Evolution in Online Advertising Format

#marketing  

What's your opinion on +The Next Web's placement of ads as 'wallpaper' behind story cards?

When you follow a link to a Next Web article now, you get a full-page ad, with the article you want bouncing side-to-side in the corner. Only when you hover over or click on the "card" the article is one does it slide into view so you can read it. 

Does this bother you, or are you OK with it? 

Here's an example:

What Is an Integrated PESO Model?

The PESO model takes the four media types—paid, earned, shared and owned—and merges them together.

Paid Media
Paid media, in this case, doesn't refer to big, fancy commercials and highly creative print ads. On the contrary, paid media for a PR program is social media advertising, sponsored content and email marketing.

Earned Media
Earned media is what you know as either publicity or media relations. It's getting your name in print. It's having a newspaper or trade publication write about you. It's appearing on TV to talk about your product. It's what the PR industry is typically known for, because it's one of the few tangible things done.

 Shared media is also known as social media. It's evolving as well, and continues to build beyond just marketing or customer service teams using it. 

Owned Media
Owned media is otherwise known as content. It is something you own, and it lives on your website or blog. You control the messaging and tell the story in a way you want it told.

Getting your G+ ON!

Well worth a look over if your keen to get your #Google+ game humming.

H/T +Kristoffer Howes​

Get an A+ on G+: Helping You Make the Grade on G+
Too many businesses feel like they are failing on Google+. My hope is that this G+ guide will help them earn an A+ for their Google+ marketing efforts.

Preface:

Here's How to Focus on Social Networks That Matter
These 3 steps will help business owners determine which social networks their competitors are using and which resources to focus on, when communicating their own branded message.
https://plus.google.com/+KristofferHowes/posts/F1HWiES3UdV

Video Tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=swyeeyJC3SY. <NEW>

Avoid Being Discouraged By Failed Attempts at Social Media
To avoid the discouragement of repeated social media marketing failures, it is recommended that businesses focus their brand building and search engine marketing efforts, on satisfying these three principles of social media success.
https://plus.google.com/+KristofferHowes/posts/8SCLTuA9mWs


Chapter 1: Google+ Basics

Explaining Google+ Circles to Square People
In the parlance of Jazz, a square was a person who failed to appreciate the medium. In more broad terms, it meant someone who was out of date, out of touch, or who clung to repressive, traditional ways of thinking. This reminds me of so many people who are apprehensive about Google+ and cling to Facebook.
https://plus.google.com/+KristofferHowes/posts/bdcsc6RkcE7

Where is the Value in Using Hashtags? <NEW>
Have you tried using hashtags to avoid ambiguity, convey emotion and contextualize what is not immediately obvious in your social media posts?
https://plus.google.com/+KristofferHowes/posts/2TwCTeB4DwV

Easy Strategies to Help Your Business Get the Most Out of G+
Businesses today need to think more like their consumers, instead of launching massive (intrusive) marketing campaigns to entrap a very small number of people.
https://plus.google.com/+KristofferHowes/posts/d4QaE2TT9y9

4 Methods of Building a Meaningful Foundation For a G+ Strategy
Utilize the Google +1 button, Google Hangouts, cross-product integration and ( #myfavorite ) hash tags, to help others communicate your branded content.
https://plus.google.com/+KristofferHowes/posts/jiF8uqcWMTP


Chapter 2: Hidden Advantages of Google+

Using a Google+ Brand Page as Your Website
There are a few methods of using a Google+ business or brand page, to act as a simple but very effective website for a small to medium-size business.
https://plus.google.com/+KristofferHowes/posts/Hd4eEyPY8QS

Let Google and Google+ Greet Consumers For You
When a Google+ profile is displayed in Google search results, it provides businesses/brands an opportunity to communicate a carefully sculpted message, to Google's search audience.
https://plus.google.com/+KristofferHowes/posts/RdnQpdxSYzQ

Optimizing Your Google+ Profile For Search Results
When it comes to optimizing your Google+ profile, the name you select, the description you provide and the content you post, all have an undeniable effect on how your G+ content is indexed by Google; and other search engines.
https://plus.google.com/+KristofferHowes/posts/7q9Pc9DRccv

FAQ & Answers About Google’s Interactive +Post Ads <NEW>
These answers to FAQ will provide you with a much better understanding of the value of +post ads and explain how to use them to engage your audience.

Chapter 3: Engaging The Google+ Community

3 Ingredients of Successful Social Media Marketing <NEW>
Although many businesses are embracing social media, some are unsure about how to participate. Here are 3 important ingredients of a successful social media marketing recipe.
https://plus.google.com/+WealMedia/posts/2PXv1Ku1qgZ

A Good Time to Formally Introduce Yourself and Your Brand
When someone adds you on Google+, you have been given a valuable brand building opportunity. Take a moment to respond with a branded message that is both informative and inviting.
https://plus.google.com/+KristofferHowes/posts/2FRXi6GQucF

Focus on The Message, The Method and The Market <NEW>
Sharing a message in an environment that you are comfortable with will support and encourage you to explore your passion for creating great content. 
https://plus.google.com/+KristofferHowes/posts/XvtKLa9qxaf


Analyze Trends Within G+ Circles and Monitor User Engagement
Businesses should focus on recruiting loyal followers and constantly work toward improving audience engagement.
https://plus.google.com/+KristofferHowes/posts/GXpvukviTUJ

3 Easy Actions That Will Increase Your Engagement <NEW>
These are 3 additional ways to connect with your audience, build better relationships and encourage more engagement with your friends, fans and followers.
https://plus.google.com/+KristofferHowes/posts/4ieCNkkxL9i


Chapter 4: Creating The Best Google+ Posts

Hey, Check This Out! <NEW>
Check this out is not a call to action, it's an excuse for not writing a good post. Think of your post as a greeting card. It should have an inviting message. Give your audience a reason to take the trip to your website/blog.
https://plus.google.com/+KristofferHowes/posts/F9WHNrY8EDn

The first 200 characters of a G+ post are the most important, because they offer a chance to effectively communicate a branded message in a busy feed.

The 1st 100 Characters of a Google+ Post are Vital
Although the 200 character cap is good to be mindful of, the 50 character title and the following 50 characters are super-important when you consider what the post will look like when it is shared by others.

+1s Can Indirectly Cause Search Results to Improve
With all things considered, did the correlating number of +1s on a post cause the webpages to appear more favorably in search results? Yes, IMO I believe they did ... indirectly.

=======================================================

I have come up with somewhat of a “novel” idea. [pun intended]

I have decided to write my Google+ marketing book on G+ and make it available only on Google+. So, not only is the book ON Google+ (topic), it is written ON Google+ (medium) and seen only ON Google+ (availability).

So now when anyone asks about my Internet marketing [using fingers to make quotation marks] book, I can respond by saying: “its on Google+.”

As well, I choose this approach because I wanted the book to be a constant work in progress that could be updated and revised to reflect the changes in Google+, and marketing on Google+. Too many books that are published become outdated and less useful as time progresses. My hope is that this body of work will be an ongoing project that will evolve with the industry and remain as relevant in 5 or 10 years, as it is today.

Mobile search face off?

#search #mobile

Is Yahoo Ready to Battle Google in Mobile Search?
These screenshots appear to be a NEW user interface for Yahoo's mobile search engine.

According to reports, the Yahoo-Microsoft deal does not include mobile search, and as such Yahoo could stop using Bing on mobile search and continue its desktop deal with Microsoft.

A couple weeks ago, a person who claims to have been working in Yahoo's search division until recently told us that, under Mayer, Yahoo built its own mobile search engine. This source said that Yahoo was testing it with 15% of its mobile users. - Business Insider

Also: There has been a lot of speculation that Marissa Mayer is planning to out-bid Google for the right to be the default search engine in the Safari browser on iPhones and iPads.

Search is an important part of Yahoo's business and we're always experimenting and looking to improve the experience for our users. We have nothing to announce at this time. - Yahoo Spokesperson

Good Brand Strategy is about making people feel

Insight into effective #marketing strategies that connect with people though nostalgia.

Remember The Good Old Days?

Typically, people believe that days from the past are/were somehow better. So, when the going gets tough, the toughest brands are turning to the past to help consumers feel better about the present.

Here are 2 GREAT examples of nostalgia marketing http://wealmedia.com/good-old-days-nostalgia-marketing/.

Over the course of time, the most resilient brands have ensured that their products/services can be revived as classics for many years to come.  Brand-giants like like Kellogg and +Dodge/+Chrysler  have learned to closely associate their brand with positive feelings and experiences from the “good old days.”

Why? It would seem that when confronted with hardship, people have the propensity to choose products/services from the brands that provide a “feel-good” experience. Knowing this, brands will deliver a marketing/advertising message that reinforces fond memories.
