Do you have a Social Media Content Strategy?

Truly great info – very insightful.

Abstract Advertising

Time has shown us that the content we place on our website is important, but what about content on your social media sites? There are a number of companies that have amazing, well-written websites, but when it comes to content strategy on social media… they fall a bit short.

User-EngagementSimply posting a link and letting it preview on Facebook isn’t working as much anymore.

Social media users are getting savvier and can decipher and sort through the content that company pages have posted on Facebook. This is especially true with the introduction of promoted posts and sponsored stories on Facebook.

More than ever, users are more suspicious of links, not wanting to waste their time reading information that is heavy on the sales copy and light on anything worthwhile.

There is a way to publish your content via social media that can help you stand out and prove yourself as…

No Social Media No Hires

Mind boggling perhaps, but certainly true! Take some time to assess your social footprint & ask yourself – “Do I invest enough time in building quality connections?”

At The Mic

Reactions ran from disbelief to total agreement.  The issue was  a news story indicating that 25% of job seekerswould not take a job if they could not use social media.  Now on the face of this, and given our economy, this sounds pretty silly.  A pay check is a pay check you could say.  However, when you are on the job and your constantly  faced with a broken copier,  a computer with a boot up time you can track with a calendar, or a phone system that always loses voice mails, what do you get?  ..Frustrated.  Frustrated because you don’t have the tools to do your job.  

Social Media

The 25% who won’t take a job without social media access are telling us the world has changed.  The tools we need to do our job have changed.  Cutting edge is something every business aspires to be,  or at least…

Enhancing Your Professional Profile: Job Hunting and Social Media

Personal Branding Essentials…

Letters from the Library

On Thursday I went up to the MMU Business School to attend an afternoon of talks as part of our regular training schedule. The theme this month was Job Hunting and Social Media, and there were three sessions over the course of the afternoon on different aspects of this topic.
 
http://www.flickr.com/photos/aslanmedia_official/6292167103/The first session was entitled “Amazing Applications”, and was run by the University’s Careers Service. There were a couple of good points raised during this session, such as the importance of mirroring the employer’s language in your application (are they groovy and relaxed, like Innocent, or businesslike, like Barclays?) to show you’ll fit in with their culture and the need for clear structure in your answers.

atlstrawberry

I came across the April issue of Atlanta Magazine, with the cover title of 50 Things Every Atlantan Must Do. Intrigued, I grabbed the magazine and flipped to the article.

This isn’t the first time this has happened. The most recent ‘Best of Atlanta’ issue of Creative Loafing also showed me that I have been missing out on what’s going down in Atlanta.  Now, I consider myself an Atlanta native. I wasn’t born here, but I have spent the majority of my adolescence here as well as my late 20’s and live here now with my family. After reading this article I was finally inspired to kick off my Atlanta bucket list. I’m ready to become a tourist in my own city.
