Social Marketing In The Nude

Social marketing is a double-edged sword because what can greatly help you, can also greatly hurt you if you don’t respect the medium and the unspoken rules of social behavior. Here’s a couple of tips to brand and market yourself and your business more effectively in the Web 2.0 world.

Fact: You are naked on the internet, especially with social media.

The fact that most social networks are open systems and have low barriers to communication and sharing of information means that everything you do within the social matrix is transparent and wholly obvious.

A couple of days ago, I got a Twitter public message from: Jodi Joseph Asaiag with the message:

@andrewwee for IP resources, tools and discussions visit http://www.bpcouncil.com – suggestions welcome at editor@bpcouncil.com

Sounds like a pleasant and helpful message.

I took a look at her twitter stream:

While it’s nice to receive direct message on twitter (perhaps they’d heard of you by reputation or were recommended by someone), it’s not as kosher to receive form messages, especially since I don’t specifically cover intellectual property or “brand protection”.

The feeling of “being special” wore off after I found that the same message had gone out to lots of other people.

Bottomline: it doesn’t hurt to get to know people before sending them a recommendation (reaction: I don’t know you… why should I care about you or your welcome – the classic WIIFM – “What’s In It for Me” question you’ll need to address to be relevant and build your standing in the community).

Participate in a conversation your intended prospect is having and you’re more likely to pique their interest and they’ll naturally want to follow you back, strike up a conversation, etc.

If all you’re doing is blatantly self-promoting on the social networks, you’ll come across as a fairly shallow person – more concerned with selling books, courses and DVDs than having conversations.

If you brought that attitude into the dating scene, you’d be pretty lonely on Friday night, so why bring that same karma into the social network.

On a positive note, it’s encouraging to see Jodi adapt her use of twitter in recent days to be more conversational in nature, with conversations and retweets populating her twitter stream.

Being naked does have its priviledges.

    Good points! There is a lot more transparency with social media networks, isn’t there.

    Transparency by definition implies openness and accountablility with communication. There is definitely an etiquette to all social media and following these implied rules will help generate traffic to your media.

    lol that’s pretty funny. as for the dating scheme…unfortunately a lot of people don’t get it and after awhile it’s a numbers game. guess that can go both ways too on the net. hit up enough people and someone will convert. otherwise, this person will stop tweeting pretty quickly.

    Amazing blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?

    I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There
    are so many options out there that I’m completely confused
    .. Any suggestions? Bless you!

    think I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take
    some of the load off, I’d absolutely love to write some material for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine.

    Computers are getting better and better in the way that they function nowadays.
    There’s no wonder that people use them in their daily lives
    now. If you are prepared to learn about how an iPad can make your daily life easier, read on to find out about all the options.

    When you are looking into purchasing an iPad you will need to look
    at a few things to get the best price possible. If you want
    to use the iPad outside of your home or office, then you will want to buy
    the more expensive version that includes 3g as well
    as WIFI.
    Battery life is typically shorter when using heavier applications like films and games.
    Modifying screen brightness can help to lengthen your battery pack life.
    You are able to enjoy your iPad without requiring it to be on the brightest setting.
    Don’t be fooled into thinking that iPads are just
    useful if you are into video gaming or entertainment.
    There is absolutely an application for anything you can possibly picture.
    This includes home organization apps like personal costs as well as recipe
    books, calculators, and anything else you can possibly imagine.

    Before you get an app, you should check out any alternatives that
    are cheaper or even free. Many times popular applications have free
    light versions that are simply the identical thing except; They
    include advertisements. If this won’t bother you, it could be a good
    way to save a few bucks.
    You can use shortcuts for messages. Just touch your space club 2 times as you type
    a sentence, and an interval and space will appear by the end.

    You won’t need to labor over your text messages like this.
