Jesse Wojdylo775,651Over the last few months I have noticed many people using Twitter to supplement Google+ or the other way around. I think there are some very effective strategies that can be used. This week we will get some of those strategies out on the table. All the information you need on Google Plus Chat is available here:http://wojdylosocialmedia.com/google-plus-chat-twitter-chat/In December of last year I really jumped on Twitter in a big way as I love the real time updates and the sports engagement. This has yet to come to Google+ so I spend my weekends chatting it up with college football and college basketball folks. While doing that I notice plenty of other awesome social media users that know and love the Google+ platform. This led me to these discussion questions:1. How long have you been active on Twitter?2. Do you use Twitter for pleasure or business? Or pain?3. Do you auto post to Twitter? Do you post Google+ Posts?4. How do you use Twitter to supplement Google+?5. Mention some active Twitter users that may enjoy Google+6. Do you want a Google Plus Chat on Christmas Eve?Please join us for #googlepluschat  on Twitter every Tuesday at 2:00 pm est.

Meilani MacDonald9,465Social Media and Marketing CircleA couple of days ago I wrote this great long post about having goals and reaching for them here on Google+. I mentioned several people in that post who I had watched and learned from.  Folks who make the best posts, from which I learned so much about marketing, social media networking, and business in general. I want to share these gems with you.This is my social media and marketing circle. Many of the people in this circle are professional social media or Internet marketers. Some use a specific medium for their marketing, such as video, or press releases, for example. Some of them are just folks that are doing such a great job of marketing themselves that I added them to the circle as people to watch and learn from. There are just a few included who are not active here on G+, but they are more active on FB where I follow their posts, and since I want to encourage them to come to the light side and share their great stuff with us here, I still included them. Whether you want to learn the principals of social media and Internet marketing yourself, or you're thinking about hiring someone to do your social media and/or Internet marketing tasks, this is a good place to start. #socialmedia   #marketing   #sharedcircles   #business  2013-02-06 23:14:39209628

Should The U.S. Federal Government Legalize Sports Betting?

Recently, +NBA Commissioner Adam Silver came out in support of legalized (and regulated) sports betting in this op-ed in +The New York Times: http://goo.gl/RFHPSI 

He mentioned that while illegal in most states, betting on sports is a "thriving underground business that operates free from regulation or oversight" estimated by some to reach $400 Billion annually

The regulatory requirements and technological safeguards Silver proposes Congress consider include:

1. Mandatory monitoring and reporting of unusual betting-line movements
2. A licensing protocol to ensure betting operators are legitimate
3. Minimum-age verification measures; geo-blocking technology to ensure betting is available only where it is legal

Time to add your mobile number to the 'Do Not Call' registry again

The last couple of weeks I've noticed telemarketing calls coming in to my cell phone again. So, I went ahead and took care of this for the next 5 years. If you've been experiencing the same thing, you may want to take a minute to add your number too.

Some companies haven't moved past cold calling from purchased lists yet. I got one for carpet cleaning last week.

Hopefully, a big lunch and a long nap will follow, so I can get some work done :)

Where Is Social Marketing Going In 2015

Lots to think about for 2015, some key insights can be found in this +SlideShare from +Simply Measured.

Why Sports Franchises Are Moving Away From Hard Tickets And Going Digital

Teams encourage digital entry as a benefit to fans while, but it's also great for marketing!.

While some older fans are voicing their displeasure for any teams' all-digital policy (ticket stubs have long been a popular collectible), most don't seem to mind the change...and that's good. Sports team marketers definitely should be embracing this upgrade.

Digital ticketing allows teams to understand more about their customer - who they are when they come to the site (from other online activity), what they buy (exact seats/section, how many tickets, etc.), and even what time they arrive at the game (when the tickets are scanned at the gate). Additionally, required registration allows for direct marketing opportunities through SMS and email.

Additionally, required registration allows for direct marketing opportunities through SMS and email. 

Imagine further, a stadium using beacon technology or NFC. The team can shoot a text to the fan to remind them to download an app or turn on their bluetooth setting. Then, as the fan walks the concourse, they can receive push alerts - $1 hot dog, 15% off at the gift shop, etc.

Digital allows for a whole range of marketing opportunities and increased fan engagement that wasn't possible before. What are your thoughts?___

How the Owners of All 32 NFL Teams Made Their Money

An interesting read if you're curious. I know I am. 

This article also lists each team's worth today, where that ranks among the rest of the teams, and often what they were originally purchased for. 

If you could afford it, would you be interested in owning a professional sports franchise?

Is Shark Tank Bad For Entrepreneurs?

I like watching Shark Tank. But, I take it for what it is. And, this post sums up the good and the bad perfectly. 

I do think the sharks give some good advice to entrepreneurs that clearly haven't thought through certain aspects of their business.

However, they aren't always the smartest ones in the room. And, if business owners take a potential investor's word on everything, they could find their business worse off in a lot of ways.

Study Finds That Marketers Could Lose $6.3 Billion To Bots In 2015

It seems strange to me that marketers/advertisers themselves would lose anything at all. It is the responsibility of the seller to see to it that purchased ad space is delivered to legitimate online viewers, and not wasted. If it can be determined that a bot saw the ad (as was done here) then no credit for the seller. Keep trying until all of the impressions are actually delivered. 

Advertisers need to hold their vendors accountable for getting the job done.

GM to expand its social outreach strategy overseas

GM’s social media monitoring has also helped it navigate two costly recalls this year — the first in February, when 1.4 million cars were recalled for faulty ignition switches, and the second in September when an additional 221,000 sedans were recalled for faulty break pads. The synchronized teams redressed customers’ grievances and did effective damage control by being responsive.

“The main reason we’ve been able to react and respond so well to recalls this year in social is because the backend integration, processes and tools were already in place,” Colley said. “All we needed to do was scale up what we were already doing to make sure we were helping as many customers as possible.”___By laying the back-end groundwork for a solid social media structure,+General Motors found themselves ahead of the game when it came time to leverage their social networks for product recalls.

Should The U.S. Federal Government Legalize Sports Betting?

Recently, +NBA Commissioner Adam Silver came out in support of legalized (and regulated) sports betting in this op-ed in +The New York Times: http://goo.gl/RFHPSI 

He mentioned that while illegal in most states, betting on sports is a "thriving underground business that operates free from regulation or oversight" estimated by some to reach $400 Billion annually

The regulatory requirements and technological safeguards Silver proposes Congress consider include:

1. Mandatory monitoring and reporting of unusual betting-line movements
2. A licensing protocol to ensure betting operators are legitimate
3. Minimum-age verification measures; geo-blocking technology to ensure betting is available only where it is legal

Some really interesting data points can be found in this article from +TopRank Online Marketing​.

Here are a few highlights that pertain to our community here along with my thoughts (sources are given for each point in the blog post). I'd love to hear your thoughts on any of the material too.

- 66% of Email opens are done on mobile devices. This is huge. I don't think it would be too much to say that if you're not optomizing for the mobile viewer at this point, you're losing.

- 3/4 of Millennials expect brands to be entertaining [in their online content] - This can be interpreted in different ways. For me it says that, especially if millennials are a target of your brand, ditch the flat sales pitch. Content should still be related and build brand affinity in a way that brings in revenue. But, few go online to be told to buy. Make it fun. Your brand's benefits should come alive on the screen without being the constant focus.

- Only 15% of Workers Share Professional Accomplishments on Social Media. It seems most people just don't use social media for the purposes of personal branding. I sure do. I know the members here do as well.

So, although I'm probably preaching to the choir, I would say to make sure you're adding projects you're working on to your LinkedIn page and requesting recommendations from colleagues when it makes sense. On Google+, use the about page and add hyperlinks to what you're doing, or have done. You may be surprised at how often people look at these.


- Local Facebook Pages are far more engaging than global Pages - Not at all surprising. I'd say any local business owner, or those operations g a franchise model would be smart to engage with customers on Facebook. Just like Facebook is the place to connect with close friends and family, it's also a place to connect with local businesses and share that experience with your networks,ny of whom live in the same region. I'd be interested to see if this is true on Instagram as well.


- Only 23% of U.S. internet users have used social media for customer purposes, but it’s the preferred channel for a very small minority. Makes sense. A lot of service issues are personal and require account info be given. For small issues though, social can be a quick way to resolve them publicly, and show others that you're listening. ___

Did you miss the Bengals-Buccaneers game yesterday? Check out this great coaching move

Bengals Coach Explains His Brilliant Illegal Challenge That Won The Game With 26 Seconds Left

"I lost my mind", says Coach Marvin Lewis.

If you missed the tense Bengals game Sunday afternoon, you missed a rare moment of genius by Lewis involving a challenge flag. If you're a Bengals fan, you know his history with challenges - not good.

But, as we're all sitting around our TVs watching a Tampa Bay drive that will win the game for them in the final seconds with a field goal, Lewis throws his red challenge flag on the field.

"What?!? It's inside 2 minutes. You can't use a challenge", we all thought (some of us screamed it at the TV).

And, we were right. A move like that will cost your team a timeout automatically (and a 15-yard penalty if you have no timeouts to spare). But, by sacrificing a timeout by throwing a flag to get the referee's attention, The Bengals allowed time for the previous play to be reviewed by them.

And, guess what they found? The Buccaneers' play that put them on the 20 yard line for an easy kick ran with 12 men on the field instead of 11 (something the ref should have caught on his own). That penalty moved the Bucs right back out of field goal range where Cincinnati successfully held them, securing a 1-point victory.

I believe Marvin Lewis deserves a lot of credit for this quick thinking. He found a way to win.      ___Did you miss the Bengals-Buccaneers game yesterday? Check out this great coaching move

Why everything you’re doing to engage fans is wrong…in a single chart

Are you a marketer that believes strongly in social media's ability to connect and engage with your customers, and even drive sales? Me too.

But, don't neglect your other channels, as they may actually be more productive than any social network. According to this chart from Forrester Research, social media pages are no higher than 5th on the list for where brand fans prefer to stay in touch.

A brand website tops the list, followed by a physical location (if you have one), and email updates. All the more reason to keep email a top priority for brand marketing efforts.

Reading Room: The power of big data to unlock new brand experiences

By Landor Associates

'So much of what I read about consumer-facing brands and big data strikes me as little more than navel-gazing. We’ve seen B2B businesses such as IBM implement big data solutions that help entire cities better plan for the future. But, as Landor recently found in a study of CMOs, there are few strong examples of consumer facing brands that have truly grasped how big data can benefit their organization and their customers.'

Amazon Hoax Coupled With Walmart's Price Matching Leads to Ridiculously Cheap PS4s

It looks like +Walmart​ will probably be making some tweaks to its "price match guarantee" policy very soon.

Because Walmart price matches any retailer, even third-party sellers, several shoppers in the market for a +PlayStation​ 4 who were looking at Twitter at the right moment were able to take advantage of a listing for the product on Amazon at the low low price of $89.99 (instead of the usual $399.99) by screenshotting it before +Amazon.com​ could remove it and bringing it in to Walmart as proof . Oh, the savings!

I wouldn't say McDonald's is experiencing hard times exactly. But, they are starting to feel the squeeze of many forces all at once that are causing sales to dip for the "mass-feeder", as one former-executive referred to the chain.

 This article from +Forbes' December print edition offers an in-depth look at McDonald's recent challenges (including some big failures), the trend of customer food choices to emerging restaurant categories, and the chain's strategy (messaging, pricing, and more) to turn things around. _   _

"[CEO Don] Thompson has talked a lot about engaging younger customers through mobile and other technology, but if you don’t give them something that more closely aligns with what they want to order, it doesn’t matter if they’re buying it on their iPhone or iPad or using Apple Pay. Again, look at Chipotle, which has the lowest-tech method for ordering: pointing with your finger."

Disney, A Mobile Company

"...making sure your products are 'on mobile' and fully embracing it are different things entirely."

+Disney​ realizes that for a large part of their market, "second screen" is really the first screen. So, they're tackling the "mobile-first" world with a streamlined approach to mobile content, which includes, among other things, consolidating separate apps into one branded experience (e.g. +ESPN​'s +SportsCenter​ app no longer stands alone from the rest of the brand).

Very interesting article detailing the difficult decision of what's next for a company that can do anything.

Why No One’s Reading Your Marketing Content

Great thoughts on the distribution leg of content marketing.

Repurposing content for different channels, and pulling out valuable excerpts for social media and email newsletters is something I believe a lot in.

Things like segmenting audiences based on any number of criteria that makes sense, and developing relationships with publishers that allow guest content seems like hard work. And, it is hard work. But, it can really pay off when that audience consumes what you've worked so hard to produce, and starts to engage with you directly.

Great examples of finding and taking advantage of moments in the customer journey.

By focusing on the present moment and making it unmistakably memorable, marketers can stand out amongst the noise and take the customer one step closer to the next major milestone.

I found the perfect spot to wear out kids (for free) on a cold day - an indoor playground.

Hopefully, a big lunch and a long nap will follow, so I can get some work done :)

Google's First 21 Employees: Where Are They Now?

This article is kind of thrown together with most info just coming from searches on Google and LinkedIn. But, hey I didn't do it.

Still, it's interesting to see who came in to the startup early, and where they've ended up. Big successes like Google create a lot of opportunity for those involved.

Will QR Codes die? Never!!

Toys R Us is putting them to work for for finding items in their stores this holiday season:

“When they go to the front of the store immediately upon entering, they will find a store map,” she said. “On a more granular level, if they are looking for a very specific item or deal, they can scan the QR code that is on that physical store map and they can key in a certain toy, a specific deal and be navigated to the exact aisle to help them find that product or deal.“

Net neutrality is important.

It's time everyone understand what's at stake here. This short video offers a very clear explanation.

Please share this with every person you know.

I know you know what net neutrality means, but maybe your boss, uncle or co-worker doesn't. Sure, there are lots of geeky and tongue-in-cheek explanations out there, but there aren't too many clear and concise summaries such as this one from The New York Times.

Net Neutrality isn't about party politics. Don't assume your elected official is going to do the right thing, no matter how much you support their other decisions. If we allow corporations to rule how we access the network that contains all of human knowledge, then we're heading down a dark path.

Stand up and do what's right, explain to people how the Internet really works. Let's take this as our opportunity to educate those around us and show them how important it is to keep the Internet free, open and available to all.___Net neutrality is important.

Dr. Strangelove Was True

A fascinating, if not disturbing, analysis of U.S. security measures when handling nuclear weapons reveals that 1964's Dr. Strangelove was not as ridiculous as it may have seemed. Well, it was. But U.S. policy was, in fact, just that ridiculous.

"In retrospect, Kubrick’s black comedy provided a far more accurate description of the dangers inherent in nuclear command-and-control systems than the ones that the American people got from the White House, the Pentagon, and the mainstream media."

Very interesting read on Frank's career, and the making of a classic collection of art.

Frank was 31 in 1955 when he secured the Guggenheim Grant that financed his various road trips across America the following year with his wife and his two young children in tow. He shot around 28,000 pictures.

When Les Americains was published by Robert Delpire in France in 1958, it consisted of just 83 black and white images, but it changed the nature of photography, what it could say and how it could say it.

Published in the United Sates as The Americans by Grove Press a year later, it remains perhaps the most influential photography book of the 20th century.
