GENERATION C: The Reign of the Connected Consumers

GENERATION C: The Reign of the Connected Consumers | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

The issue of online consumers


"Over the next year, a leading business challenge will be to integrate new generations.

 

To fully understand the new paradigms of online consumers, we must stop compartmentalizing generations in silos, and instead take a more comprehensive view of the phenomenon, and look more toward the new generation of responsible consumers.

 

This generation of active and trendy consumers, seniors and baby boomers, generations X, Y and Z, that generation is now called Generation C.

 

Today, to stand out from the clutter of content and information that flows through social networks, marketing efforts must now be more targeted and focused on the experience and satisfaction of the customer

Social Media and the Value of Controlling the Conversation

Social Media and the Value of Controlling the Conversation | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
Social media marketing must be justified. Can we measure the value of social media and the conversation it promises?
janlgordon's insight:

I selected this article by Andrew Osegi for Kunocreativ because it addresses a topic that  every social media marketer should be concerned about.


He asks a very important question:


"How do we give value to the fleeting micro engagements that make up social media interaction?"


Some insights to get you thinking and leveraging your messages and conversations online.


Here are a few highlights:


As the web grows, so too will the number of users invested in social media networking. In order for anyone (brand or individual) to reap the benefits of social, businesses must establish a reputable (i.e. searchable) presence in their niche or industry. This takes A) time and B) money.


Your social strategy must reflect, and adhere to, the measurable data produced when posting. This data will direct how you conduct future social media campaigns - where ROI really matters. More on that in this article.


He refers to social capital - In an article by Rig Dragon, social capital is difficult to predict and measure, but most definitely applicable in social media. Social media, like advertising, creates unseen impressions too important to ignore. - Good insights here!

 

Takeaway:


Think of your social media efforts as a transaction of energy. Reciprocal conversation, online or in person, is rewarding to all parties involved.

A Look at the Social Mobile Marketing Paradox

A Look at the Social Mobile Marketing Paradox | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
Today's good news, thanks to social, mobile and content marketing, is every brand, company and personal brand has exponentially more touch points.
janlgordon's insight:

This article was written by our top Scoopiteer, Marty Smith for Curatti


Here is are a few highlights:


What is the real social mobile marketing Paradox?


The real social mobile marketing paradox is we don’t know what we don’t know.


Tools that currently feel like B2C company to consumer connection apps are undeniably powerful and their impact on Efficiency’s Irony and other logistics, distribution and marketing problems so new no “best practices” exist.


How this paradox unfolds will determine the Facebook, Google and Twitter of a new generation of innovators able to mesh powerful scaled systems together to create, distribute, publish and monetize our social mobile marketing paradox.

Why Thought Leaders Need Provocateurs

Why Thought Leaders Need Provocateurs | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
janlgordon's insight:
This piece was written by Andy Capaloff for Curatti
Collaboration across multiple skillsets is essential in any advancement, whether in the social sphere or in business.  Just as a good curator adds context related to their readership and an observation on the running of a small business can help take it to the next level, so input from people outside of the current thought leadership sphere can catapult conversations to new heights.
 
There are different types of smarts, and just because you may not feel that your writing matches up those involved in innovations that you are drawn to, does not mean that your input, providing a new angle, will not provide an ingredient that nobody even realized was missing.
 
Here are some highlights:
Technology and Social Media are branching out into many new forms at a rate few if any can keep up with.  Inevitably, natural selection comes into play, ensuring that even some of the best ideas barely see the light of day.
 
There is huge value in “multiple skillsets being employed in any process, with questions being asked by the non-experts or those with complementary skills”
 
There comes a point when a different viewpoint borne of different experiences and knowledge become essential to lift any great idea towards a new, far greater plateau

The Semantic Web is Hugely Important to Tomorrow's Business - Here's Why

The Semantic Web is Hugely Important to Tomorrow's Business - Here's Why | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
The "semantic Web" is hugely important to tomorrow's business. Do not underestimate its significance: It truly changes everything. Embrace it, or risk extinction. But what is it? And what does it mean for your business?
janlgordon's insight:

This post was written by David Amerland for Forbes and he hold nothing back - he says "Do not underestinate its signifigance: It truly changes everything. Embrace it or risk extinction.


Here are a few things that caught my attention:


Yes it's the latest buzzword, but let's take a look beyond that..........


It marks the transition into a new phase of the Web where we stop searching and start finding


we discover not just the information that matches the keywords we search for, but the information that we really wanted to find. Information directly related in context, not just in keywords.


New Products; New Services


The semantic Web is far more open, transparent and personalized.


It’s being transformed into a place where the same content means different things to different people


The Answer Lies in Hyperconnectivity


In order for us to become smarter, we somehow need to understand the meaning of information.


To do that we need to be able to forge connections in all this data, to see how each piece of knowledge relates to every other


In the semantic Web, we users provide the connections, through our social media activity.


The patterns that emerge, the sentiment in the interactions—comments, shares, tweets, Likes, etc.—allow a very precise, detailed picture to emerge.



The Bottom Line


The semantic Web is accelerating change across the board, challenging companies that move too slowly to adapt. Embrace it, or risk extinction.


The old rules no longer apply. If you want to be found, social is no longer an option.

Bart van Maanen's curator insight, August 3, 2013 8:48 AM

Zoekmachines - en Google - voorop gaan de context van zoektermen steeds beter begrijpen, zodat gebruikers betere en op hun situatie (plek, voorkeuren) toegespitste resultaten krijgen. Omdat het daarbij om de zogeheten 'big data' draait, is onder meer het gebruik van Google+ belangrijk voor Google. 

 

Kort gezegd gaat het betekenen dat zoekwoord 'pizza' niet leidt naar allerhande recepten websites, maar naar de Italiaan om de hoek.

Twitter Now The Fastest Growing Social Platform In the World

Twitter Now The Fastest Growing Social Platform In the World | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
The most detailed study of social media ever conducted
janlgordon's insight:

This piece by Globalwebindex has some amazing new information about Twitter, once seen as more of a niche social network according to research in 2009, but not anymore!

 

Jan Gordon: Note, Globalwebindex hasn't revealed the source of their data to date - here is a link from October 2012 with some findings and sources on Twitter and what's going on: http://huff.to/Vw9Pqc - scroll to the bottom of the page.


Here are some highlights from this article:

.

**GWI.8, the Q4 2012 dataset from GlobalWebIndex, shows that the number of active Twitter users grew 40% from Q2 2012 to Q4 2012.


**This is equal to 288 million monthly active users (claimed to have used or contribute to Twitter in the past month) across the 31 markets currently


**researched by GWI (representing nearly 90% of the global internet population aged 16 to 65). That marks a whopping growth rate in active users of 714% since July 2009.


An incredible 21% of the global internet population now use Twitter actively on a monthly basis.


 What Does This Mean for Brands?


Using Twitter is becoming more relevant than ever, but we need to be aware of how any given audience engages with Twitter. Difference in usage patterns will reflect the local market norms, generational gaps, and privacy concerns


**it impacts the nature of the target audience who are active and the type of brands for which it would be relevant.


**All of this, of course, is dependent on running detailed analysis of your target audience and the local market context.


We also need to consider the changing nature of usage. The growing interaction with brands makes customer service and staff interaction a must if Twitter is employed as a communication channel.


**Also, the growing usage of Twitter as a discovery tool means that content is absolutely critical for brands.


**Overall, content is the ever growing mega opportunity of the new social landscape.

Do Social Marketers Really Know What Social Consumers Want?

Do Social Marketers Really Know What Social Consumers Want? | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

This article is from Brian Solis , and in collboration with Barnickel Design, they have created this infograph that clearly shows that there is a perception gap 


what customers want and what executives think they want.based on research from Pivot referring "The Perception Gap"


Jan Gordon: My commentary


Hopefully this article and findings will help to provide some clarity so marketers can begin to engage with their customers, in a way that is meaningful to them. Word of mouth spreads like wildfire and you'll want to make sure your business is listening, engaging and responding to their needs before someone else does.


Here are some highlights:


** 76% of marketers feel they know what their customers want yet only 34% have asked customers


**59% of social customers wish to engge businesses for buying insights and customer service respectively, on the contrary only 37% of marketers believe that these services re in demand by their customers


**Take a look at Actual Consumer usage VS marketers' perceptions of consumer usage on the infograph, there is definitely a gap in perception here


 mobile social apps 


**15% of consumers use them on Linkedin, marketers think it's more like 36. 7%


**twitter 35% useage - marketers perceive this to be 82%

 


 Daily deal  & coupon sites


**Facebook usage is 35%


**Marketers perceive this to be 56%

Twitter is Not a Social Network - Here's Why

Twitter is Not a Social Network - Here's Why | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Gideon Rosenblatt on his blog Alchemy of Change. Many people are still confused about and you can see that everyday if you observe the interactions and how some people are still using it.


Intro:


"Twitter is not a social network. It's a 'real-time information network' and once you see it that way, its competitive edges look a lot closer to Google than to Facebook"


Here is what Evan Williams Co-Founder of twitter said about Twitter:


"I don't consider Twitter to be a social space—primarily. It's a utility for getting (and sometimes spreading) news, information, and entertainment, more than it is a hangout space like the mall. Some people, of course, use it primarily for socializing, and the line is blurry".


Here's what caught my attention:


**This data is extensive.It’s a paper called “What is Twitter, a Social Network or a News Media?” Download PDF


**They downloaded all the member and usage data then analyzed it


Here are some of the findings:


** Twitter shows a low level of reciprocity


**77.9% of user pairs with any link between them are connected one-way


**only 22.1% have reciprocal relationship between them.

**22.1% have reciprocal relationship between them


Moreover, 67.6% of users are not followed by any of their followings in Twitter.


We conjecture that for these users Twitter is rather a source of information than a social networking site.


"Twitter is a living, breathing example of the power law at work; an information distribution network with a small number of heavies followed by lots of people, and lots of people followed by few, if any.


There are people in between, but that’s not the majority.


**This research strongly suggests that two-thirds of the Twitter base the vast majority of Twitter users – are really just using the service as a human-powered information distribution and filtering service.

Who Really Gets People To Buy On Social Media Influencers or Early Adopters?

Who Really Gets People To Buy On Social Media Influencers or Early Adopters? | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
According to findings of a new study by the Webby Awards, Social Media platforms really do allow people to influence the purchasing activities of their connections. The strategic question remains, however: who actually gets people to buy? Some social media experts say you must win the “influencers” to your cause and make them your advocates....
janlgordon's insight:

This article is from Yahoo Small Business Advisor -  (It was originally posted on B2CommunityI) I selected it because the answer is something that all of us need to know. Is it a combination of both?

Take a look at some of the findings below:


According to  new study by the Webby Awards Social Media platforms really do allow people to influence the purchasing activities of their connections. The strategic question remains, however: who actually gets people to buy?


* The data from the Webby Awards study clearly demonstrates that word of mouth product/service endorsement remains powerful and that word of mouth influence is strong on social media platforms.


Here is the first data point:


The first data point is that 56 percent of American adults aged 18 – 44 have been the first in their circle of friends to try a new product, service or technology.


Here's what caught my attention:


We also know that “influencers” hold sway over the opinions of many social media users when making product, service or technology choices. Unfortunately, the data will not answer the critical questions small business owners and marketers must answer:


  • Are influencers and early adopters the same people for a particular product, service or technology?
  • If they are not the same people, which group has the greatest influence with prospective customers or clients?

Demystifying the Data Dilemma

Demystifying the Data Dilemma | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
janlgordon's insight:

This article was written by Andy Capaloff for Curatti - it clearly addresses the challenges that many businesses are having with their data.


Here's a snippet from this piece:


Andy Capaloff says:


You have to frame questions well and ask for exactly what you wanted, or you would either get no answer at all or worse, the one that you asked for.


So interrogating, and stepping back from that, gathering and compiling your data becomes a matter of knowing your processes in great detail.  You are asking a computer, remember.  It is no more capable of understanding nuance than was a brilliant former colleague.


Here is a special offer from Curatti-


We're looking for 2 to 4 small businesses to submit raw data and reports you are producing, that pertain to your sales funnel.


Andy will try to highlight the problem areas that need  addressing and perhaps pinpoint holes in the data.


He will give a free analysis that may be used as a case study, completely anonymous. This will will also help him hone in on exactly where your pain points are so he can write further posts on this topic to help you utilize this information in your business.

What is The Value of Questions and How Can Your Business Benefit From Them? | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
janlgordon's insight:

This post was written by Andy Capaloff for Curatti


I love this article because as curator and a business owner being a provacateur is essential in instigating conversation and taking a topic to another level which can lead to all kinds of opportunities. There's an art to asking questions and this just first of many pieces on this topic that you'll find on Curatti


Something to ponder.......


How can you use leverage questions to benefit your business?


Can monetary value be placed on questions?  Not really, as there are too many variables involved. But depending on the timing and manner of delivery, questions can be the ingredient that spurs innovation and growth.

 

Here's are a few highlights:

 

The rhetorical question can spur conversation and wake up a

slumbering ideas process


The joking question can lift a mood


The incisive question can take a brilliant idea into a different stratosphere


The personal question can tell a person struggling in solitude that someone in the world cares

How to Maximize the Reach of Your Posts on Social Networks

How to Maximize the Reach of Your Posts on Social Networks | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

This article and infographic was posted by Ted Nguyen for his blog.


Intro:


One of the most pressing questions whether you're new to social media or a social media maven is: What's the best way to post information or share content to optimize your reach


Compendium, a content marketing firm conducted a study of more than 200 companies to determine how social media professionals may optimize their engagement with both business-to-business-to-consumer conversations.


What they found is consistent with what Ted Nguyen has experienced and he has demonstrated that he clearly knows what he's doing

Here are some highlights:


"My experience in sharing more than 21,000 tweets and Facebook posts to my more than 82,000 Twitter followers and Facebook friends is consistent with the study’s findings"

.

**I recommend the hours between 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. (Pacific Time) or 1 to 4 p.m. (Eastern Time) are the best times for Twitter and Facebook to optimize social engagement engagement.


**I find that tweets shared earlier in the week do better than those sent later in the week. I also have discovered that Facebook posts do best Wednesday early afternoon.


**if you look at Ted's social shares, they run around the clock. he tries his best to engage with people in real time or near real time.

What Happens Every 60 Seconds In Social Media? [INFOGRAPHIC]

What Happens Every 60 Seconds In Social Media? [INFOGRAPHIC] | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest – What Happens Every 60 Seconds In Social Media?


Some very interesting information:


**Did you know that every 60 seconds Twitter sees (on average) 175,000 new tweets?


**Over that same time period, Pinterest receives 1,090 visitors


**LinkedIn absorbs 7,610 searches


**Flickr users upload 3,125 photos?


 **If you think those numbers are impressive, how about this: each and every minute of the day, 700,000 messages are sent on Facebook


** two million videos are watched on YouTube.


What caught my attention - sometimes the comments are just as interesting if not more than the actual content itself:

 

****Sarah Upton says: February 28, 2012 at 11:23 pm - This is a comment from one of their readers:


Misleading and inaccurate.


You cite an article on Foursquare from AUGUST, then round DOWN. They get over five million check ins per day: http://mashable.com/2012/02/28/foursquare-hq-tour/ — so double what you’ve presented here.


Jumpstart was very apologetic and said they're trying to be as accurate as possible. Point being, these infographics are great to look at and give us an approximation of what's actually happening, trying to keep the facts straight, not an easy task for sure:-)


This data is courtesy of a new infographic from marketing consultancy firm Social Jumpstart, which takes a closer look and tries to be as accurate as possible at what happens in social media every 60 seconds.
