5 The Most Popular Networks of 2013

We offer you a short review of some of the social and business networks which we consider to be the most popular in 2013. If you have you own predictions, please share them with us, and we will update our report!

LinkedIn

Linkedin seems to be one of the main players in social media for media marketers to work in as a network that is designed for business professionals but it is also a prime place to generate B2B leads from. Since LinkedIn is a place for business professionals and a job seeking tool, a marketer can stick to old business strategies and create various groups around his products. In most cases blogs and comments appear to be more like a billboard of advertising links, and ineffective marketing suggestions. But many people are interested in reading the comments about interesting topics.

Google +

It is well known that Google is a networking giant. Basically Google created SEO, as well as a key words search. And with Google being the search engine giant that it is, it set up a historic battle between SEO specialists. Google+ is a giant search engine optimizer. In other words, G+ isn’t just a place to market your business; it’s also a place as to where your SEO efforts matter. In other words you get what you pay for. It is an internet marketing monopoly. Many people hate Google for that. Despite many hours dedicated to G+, you just can’t get the hang of it. It is so tricky to use and not very useful.

Pinterest

Pinterest is interesting hidden market model. It isn’t just a board for beautiful images. It is a little bit more (like everything online, it’s not only content!) You can use this platform for business development. If you have a great graphic designer, then you can create unique infographics that you can post on Pinterest (or any other networks). If not, here is probably no sense wasting time on it. But take into consideration that the mechanics of SEO are still slowly developing, so you need to use it until it becomes a full-blown marketing tactic.

Glabex

Glabex.com is catching on as an effective business marketing tool. Unlike the others, Glabex is especially tailored for online business. As far as we know, it is the US’s first online destination specially made for businesses. Idea is quite new, and it’s a business model that focuses on local, independent companies by offering a cost-free, risk-free online presence.  This platforms combines the charm of social media marketing, allowing users to upload a variety of media content for business or product promotion, with online retailing by providing sophisticated tools for online e-Commerce.

Facebook

Now, this is where a lot of marketers seem to go wrong. When on Facebook, it’s important to remember that it is a social website. Thus, when on Facebook, you must promote yourself as a business person. This will be less successful in attracting fans. You need to be social as a person, and as a company. The Facebook crowd you are marketing to is diverse. Facebook has all kinds of adverts and spam groups and games. You need to spend too much time on Facebook to gain page recognition for your business or bring in some fans. It is hard, especially when you need to do not only Facebook marketing, but also other marketing for your business. Social media is something that takes a lot of time and effort. Well, on LinkedIn perhaps you can do business marketing, but on Facebook or Google+, it is less successful.

Each social network has its own type of audience members. It’s a good idea to advertise on all of them. However, if you spend a bit of time finding the right communities/groups/pages—which may take a little while—you will enjoy more success.

It’s better to formulate a proper strategy before just jumping on board.

We hope that these tips will to help you to improve your social media marketing.

Therefore you always have something great to

write about, you just need to embrace multiple content format types. Some

of them might take a long time to write — such as the thought leadership

pieces your favorite executives are writing, or the big research reports

that required a ton of surveys, data slicing, and analysis.

You should create that kind of content.

But you should also make your life easier, and realize there are a ton of

content formats that are extremely valuable to readers, drive serious

business results, and don’t take that long to put together. Here’s your

quick content toolkit, from which you should draw every day.

Quick Content Formats.

How-To

If you know how to do something your readers would want to know

about, it’s easy to transfer your knowledge to paper — or your

computer screen. Remember, just write it out like you’d speak it if you

were telling a lead, customer, or colleague.

Top Lists

A tried and true content method, top lists are a mix between original

content and aggregation. You aggregate the ideas, and write short

blurbs about each. This is excellent content for a new writer, because

each blurb in the list is quite short, and the post provides a built-in

structure to work around.

FAQ

Think of the questions leads and customers ask you every day, and turn

that into a piece of content in which you answer the common question.

You could also pose a question on a social network, at an event, or

during a webinar, and then respond to them in aggregate in a blog post.

Data

Whether you have your own data or you stumble across interesting industry data in your reading, take one or many data points and compile them into a post.

 

Excerpted Content

When you publish a gated piece of content (typically lead generation content that is gated behind a form on a landing page — such as a whitepaper), a quick source of content is an excerpt of that piece. The excerpt also serves to promote the gated content, showing readers what they’ll get if they download the full version. It’s the same as when an author shares a free chapter of their published book.

  Video Content

Video content is the most effective type of cotnet. Video is easy way to discuss advantages of your products and your team.

You might also schedule an interview with your colleagues to talk about your company, another helpful video format that doesn’t require a lot of investment. Make it simple and profitable for your company. Upload your video to Your Glabex account, makes it easy for your marketing.

 Newsjacks

By their very nature, newsjacks are quick content formats. When a piece

of news that would impact your industry — or for which you could find

a relevant spin for your audience — hits the press, hop on it like a rabbit

during mating season.

 

Sourcing Content Internally and Externally with Glabexes It:

At glabex, we build blogging and social advertising to work for You.

You should also be open to accepting guest blogging submissions

from external sources, which have the added benefit of helping build

a stronger link profile.

To squeeze more ROI from the content creation work you’re already

doing, it’s important you get comfortable with finding new ways to use

the content you’ve already created. This is your content repurpose

toolkit — even if you get time-crunched and content creation seems

impossible, these repurposing tactics should keep your machine from

dying out.

Align Content With Strategy.

out such a high

Create a content mix, as professional marketers do. Most importantly, though, they don’t view an experiment’s failure as a personal failure; it’s just the cost of doing agile business. They’ve also mitigated the risk by investing very little resources into the initial experiment, instead opting to iterate on that initial piece of content to see how and if they can make the new content format, platform, etc. work. Some examples of how you could do this include:

  • Trying out new social networks. See if a new or underused social network is a good platform to share your content.
  • Adopting the content format of a particular network. See if you can create visual content that works on, say, Pinterest, or short Vine videos for Twitter. Use Glbex is the start point, then sjust one click and you sahre everyhign cross social, easy and fast, make sheduling. All services are free.
  • Creating videos. Many marketers shy away from videos because of the initial barrier to entry. See if you creating a low-cost, low-resource video pays

you any dividends, and if so, iterate from there.

Experiment With New Types of Content.

All content, whether part of an experiment or a regular guest in your content creation machine, needs to be pulling its proverbial weight.

Measuring content performance allows you to assess whether a piece of content was worth the time you put into it, and whether you would do it again in the future. Here are the metrics you can track to evaluate the success of your content assets.

Measure Content Performance.

Offer or Landing Page Submissions

Landing page submissions is the raw number of people who redeemed a content offer. You can also look at the conversion rate to see the percentage of visitors to a landing page that redeemed your offer.

New Contact Rate

This number tells you how many of the people that redeemed a piece of lead generation content were new to your database. Re-conversions are important, but it’s also critical your content is helping you continually fill the top of your funnel.

Page Views and Traffic

An excellent metric to determine the success of your overall blog and individual blog posts, this will tell you whether certain subject matters are more appealing than others, and help you inform your content strategy.

Inbound Links

An indicator of content quality, inbound links also help you identify which content is helping you improve your SEO.

Social Media Shares

Social sharing is another indication of content quality, and also helps your organic search strategy. If you need to fill the top of your marketing funnel, identifying which content garnered a lot of social media shares and replicating it will help you score another success.

Conversion Rate

You can get a conversion rate on just about anything — a landing page, a thank-you page, a blog post call-to-action. Measure the conversion rate across different content assets to see what correlation you see between content topics and formats, and the channel on which it lives. Rate calculator is inbuilt in all your pages, been customer ratings. The higher the indicator the higher your comments on search results. For instance, you could compare the conversion rate of a CTA promoting the same offer on a blog, versus on social media, to assess if one audience is more interested in the content asset than another. Analytics is the key at Glabex.

Align Content With Strategy.

out such a high

Create a content mix, as professional marketers do. Most importantly, though, they don’t view an experiment’s failure as a personal failure; it’s just the cost of doing agile business. They’ve also mitigated the risk by investing very little resources into the initial experiment, instead opting to iterate on that initial piece of content to see how and if they can make the new content format, platform, etc. work. Some examples of how you could do this include:

  • Trying out new social networks. See if a new or underused social network is a good platform to share your content.
  • Adopting the content format of a particular network. See if you can create visual content that works on, say, Pinterest, or short Vine videos for Twitter.

  • Creating videos. Many marketers shy away from videos because of the initial barrier to entry. See if you creating a low-cost, low-resource video pays

you any dividends, and if so, iterate from there.

 Experiment With New Types of Content.

All content, whether part of an experiment or a regular guest in your content creation machine, needs to be pulling its proverbial weight.

Measuring content performance allows you to assess whether a piece of content was worth the time you put into it, and whether you would do it again in the future. Here are the metrics you can track to evaluate the success of your content assets.

Measure Content Performance.

Offer or Landing Page Submissions

Landing page submissions is the raw number of people who redeemed a content offer. You can also look at the conversion rate to see the percentage of visitors to a landing page that redeemed your offer.

New Contact Rate

This number tells you how many of the people that redeemed a piece of lead generation content were new to your database. Re-conversions are important, but it’s also critical your content is helping you continually fill the top of your funnel.

Page Views and Traffic

An excellent metric to determine the success of your overall blog and individual blog posts, this will tell you whether certain subject matters are more appealing than others, and help you inform your content strategy.

Inbound Links

An indicator of content quality, inbound links also help you identify which content is helping you improve your SEO.

Social Media Shares

Social sharing is another indication of content quality, and also helps your organic search strategy. If you need to fill the top of your marketing funnel, identifying which content garnered a lot of social media shares and replicating it will help you score another success.

Conversion Rate

You can get a conversion rate on just about anything — a landing page, a thank-you page, a blog post call-to-action. Measure the conversion rate across different content assets to see what correlation you see between content topics and formats, and the channel on which it lives. Rate calculator is inbuilt in all your pages, been customer ratings. The higher the indicator the higher your comments on search results. For instance, you could compare the conversion rate of a CTA promoting the same offer on a blog, versus on social media, to assess if one audience is more interested in the content asset than another. Analytics is the key at Glabex.

Optimize Lead. Management to Align. Sales and Marketing.

New pressures for marketers

Today’s marketers are under mounting pressure to demonstrate the direct connection between marketing programs and sales impact. While Measuring return on marketing investment is not easy task.

 

Marketers need to show a positive link between outreach activities and bottom-line metrics such as new customer acquisition and sales revenue. But for many companies, deficient

lead management practices keep getting in the way. The landscape of business-to-business marketing has profoundly changed.

 

Marketers face the formidable challenge of tracking leads from an ever-expanding array of channels in an increasingly complex purchase-decision process. In the past, marketing teams

focused largely on raising brand awareness through creative work, but this is no longer true. Marketing departments now must be able to show—proof-positive—that their efforts directly contribute to new leads, customer acquisitions, sales, and revenue growth.

 

Marketers working in the new landscape of business-to-business marketing face yet another challenge: how to manage an ongoing digital dialog with prospective customers. Because today’s buyers use social media extensively, marketers need to be agile enough to keep them engaged and informed—not just in the early stages, but throughout the marketing and sales lifecycle.

New solutions: a holistic approach

What’s the answer to these challenges? Marketing automation software, which automates the process of moving leads through the sales funnel, can be part of this solution but clearly technology alone cannot make the difference. The solution lies in synchronizing processes and technology to better align marketing and sales and improve lead management.

 

 

Marketing operations offers a way to coordinate people, processes, and tools. Marketing operations principles offer a holistic approach to optimizing lead management and provide

a clear path from marketing spend to revenue through realized sales—one that examines how people, processes, and tools come together throughout the marketing and sales lifecycle.

 

It prioritizes staff training and development, defines lead handoff and followup

mechanisms, and evaluates software tools for improving both marketing and sales force automation.

 

By taking steps to coordinate people, processes, and tools to manage leads, marketing leaders can more accurately measure and maximize return on marketing investment. The holistic approach focuses on three key activities:

 

  • Synchronize the efforts of cross-functional teams
  • Optimize lead management workflows
  • Close critical gaps in software systems

Need to synchronize team efforts

 

Marketing and sales teams often are not aligned in their processes and goals. Lack of alignment between marketing tactics and sales objectives magnifies the difficulty of measuring performance.

 

Marketing staff contend with the pressure of keeping the sales pipeline primed with leads. At the same time, sales personnel routinely clamor for more efficient lead routing and better insight into the value that each opportunity represents.

 

To win support for ongoing marketing investment, marketing leaders need to be able to show the direct impact of expenditures on tangible business outcomes, such as growth in market share, increased sales, greater customer value, and increased profitability.

 

Deficient lead-management practices, often related to the growing complexity of marketing campaigns, are a common source of misalignment between marketing and sales. Today’s marketers typically need to mine and monitor responses from numerous channels while navigating a labyrinth of workflows to distribute leads to sales staff.

Marketing is evolving

Spotlight on leads: what goes wrong?

Lead management lies at the heart of the issue. It encompasses the methodology, organizational roles, processes, and technologies dedicated to providing sales teams with qualified prospective customer information. This critical function dictates how customer inquiries are captured, how leads are ranked, and what communications tactics are applied to leads at each phase in the purchasing process.

 

The main bridge between the marketing and sales teams is lead management. Yet, for many enterprises—despite its obvious strategic importance—lead management is in desperate need of fixing. In some cases, companies lack any means for scoring leads or nurturing prospects that are not yet ready to buy. As a result, they lose a significant number of leads each year to neglect.

 

Marketers face pressure to continuously feed the demand pipeline.

 

As a result, marketing teams tend to focus on quickly pushing leads to sales contacts in high volumes, rather than evaluating and classifying responses in a more systematic way. Predictably, in this scenario, sales personnel cherry-pick the most promising leads and

overlook the others, resulting in high lead-churn rates and wasted opportunities. Marketers need standardized processes for lead qualification, routing, and nurturing. Using marketing operations principles, they can classify opportunities, engage prospects with appropriate follow-up communications, and close the loop with sales teams to measure campaign performance.

How do you fix it?

The way to build an opportunity pipeline that generates higher conversion rates, more closed deals, and increased profitability is to fix lead management first. By focusing squarely on aligning people, processes, and tools, you can optimize and quickly scale lead-management workflows. With an enhanced ability to track leads throughout the purchase-decision process, you can close the loop with sales to evaluate and take steps to maximize return on marketing investment.pact of such an

initiative.

  • Determine gaps. Perform a high-level capabilities assessment that evaluates the staffing resources, process flows, and technology assets that support lead management.

 

  • Assure data quality. Consolidate and cleanse lead-tracking data sources to enable streamlined, consistent performance measurement.

 

  • Optimize processes. Define simple, repeatable processes and automated workflows to govern lead capture, qualification, and off, and performance tracking tasks. Provide ongoing staff training on these processes and adopt a strategy of continuous improvement.

You should ensure that right image will appeal to the right person, followers.

  • What types of content do my potential followers, existing customers seem to prefer?

The best marketing practices

Email marketing is incredibly powerful marketing tool to have in their arsenal of marketing techniques, and should be an integral part of an overall marketing strategy of any business. However, very few companies are actually able to do what you need to master this technique, and as a result, they lag behind and missing out on potential revenue growth. So, what’s the secret? Well, there really is no perfect formula, but there are certain things you can do to improve the results of your email marketing campaign. Please take a look at the following several 6 steps:

Make it Valuable – Sending your customer an endless number of  useless information, which will be forwarded to trash and mark as spam immediately. Instead, to make sure that the content of your emails is useful for your readers, offering something valuable. It can be links to helpful articles, a few simple tips or coupons, interesting news about your new product issues, or events, organized by your company.

Be Consistent– If you really want to reach your customers and create your brand image, you need to be consistent in your e-mail efforts. Do not just send an e-mail disorderly, spamming your potential customers with useless and irrelevant information. It is better to create strict  editorial calendar, build  a regular newsletter. Once created such newsletter, send it at least weekly.

Include a clear call to action is a proven fact that people do what they say. Instead of hoping that your prospects will take action, tell them! Whatever the purpose of your e-mail address is, whether to sell a new product or service to get people to sign up for an event or webinar, use action words like “click here to buy now” or “signed today,” to encourage your readers to This goal

Keep it simple and short. Nobody wants to spend their time to read unexpected unfamiliar email. Creating email marketing campaign, you are trying to catch your potential customer attention. So , make your content simple to read for anybody and most important short. Try to explain your point in 2-3 sentences. Keep in mind that the majority of readers look only on first or second sentences.

Keep it compatible. There are so many different operating systems and devices, no one knows what and how to retrieve your mail and read.
