The brands you follow on Instagram may be paying close attention to you — very close attention, in fact. Union Metrics, the social analytics company behind the Twitter analytics service TweetReach, added an Instagram analytics tool on Wednesday. A m…
The term ‘digital marketing’ doesn’t differentiate between push and pull marketing tactics (or what we might now refer to as ‘inbound’ and ‘outbound’ methods). Both can still fall under the umbrella of digital marketing.
Another huge benefit is that digital marketing allows marketers to see accurate results in real time. If you’ve ever put an advert in a newspaper, you’ll know it’s impossible to measure the impact that advert has on your business. On the other hand, with digital marketing, you can measure the ROI of pretty much any aspect of your marketing efforts using analytics software (like HubSpot).
A social media strategy for me meant narrowing the social networks to Facebook and Twitter (owing to time). Once I got going, I started seeing more and more observations and contributions where your kind of marketing plan is detailed. Your post here has a lot of enlightening detail for someone getting started. Thanks!
Social media is cost effective and businesses can take the advantage of low-cost advertising features offered by various social media platforms. The type of social media platforms a business should choose depends on their type of products and services.
Video in the Facebook app has also taken off, and the largest social network in the world sees the News Feed consisting mostly of video content within two years. That would explain why Facebook is so interested in virtual reality — it snapped up the VR company Oculus for $US2 billion. 360 degree video in the News Feed could be just the beginning of what’s to come.
Collaborative Environment: A collaborative environment can be set up between the organization, the technology service provider, and the digital agencies to optimize effort, resource sharing, reusability and communications. Additionally, organizations are inviting their customers to help them better understand how to service them. This source of data is called User Generated Content. Much of this is acquired via company websites where the organization invites people to share ideas that are then evaluated by other users of the site. The most popular ideas are evaluated and implemented in some form. Using this method of acquiring data and developing new products can foster the organizations relationship with their customer as well as spawn ideas that would otherwise be overlooked. UGC is low-cost advertising as it is directly from the consumers and can save advertising costs for the organisation.

My eldest would chat to her friends every minute of every evening in parallel to life at home if allowed. They use What’s App. Do you know how well managed this app is? Her other favourite site is Pinterest. I spoke to her and explained why I don’t want her to use Tumblr or Facebook but one of the reasons I gave for not having a Facebook account was that she sees her friends at school every day, it’s best for family overseas or people you don’t see very often. She accepted that but the same could apply to a What’s App. I don’t think I would stop her using What’s App cos she frequently shares the exchanges she has with friends with me and it’s useful for communicating when they’re doing homework, but sometimes I feel she is living her life in several alternate realities and sharing every minute of her friends’ angst, fangirl hysteria and with some friends their loneliness. At the weekend I often take her iPod Touch off her and she participates fully in family life – still, only just a teenager!

Still confused? to think of social media like fruit. Apples, bananas, oranges, grapes, berries, melons and pineapples are all part of the broader fruit category the same way that social networking, social news, social bookmarking, wikis, blogs and private web messaging are part of the broader social media category.

Predatory comments are a concern. Because anyone can communicate with broadcasters, there is the potential for viewers to request sexual pictures or performances or to contact them through other social means and send private images or messages.
On the other hand, marketers who employ digital inbound tactics use online content to attract their target customers onto their websites by focusing on being helpful to them.
