On Want to Keep Your Personal Information Private? Monitor Your Online Reputation!

Interesting!  Wonder why you are not bringing up a tool like pipl.com.  In the past we had 123people but that is no longer active.

On Other Than LinkedIn, Why Are B2B Marketers Still Unsure About Social Media?

The biggest social platform missing from this list is BLOGGING which is one of the number social media platforms for B2B.  Though Tumblr makes the list, Blogger, WP or others should be the best allies of B2B marketeers.  Why are they missing this?  Lazy or uninformed?  Who knows but what better channel to communicate to your target audience than Blogging...

On 5 Reasons Recruiters Don't Click Through Your LinkedIn Profile [INFOGRAPHIC]

Recruiters also fail to have a good profile!  Maybe the same question has to be asked: Why I do not want to click on the profile of a recruiter?  

50% do not have a profile picture

60+ do not even their website

90% do not do status updates!

More info on my survey in Septermber...

On LinkedIn for Brands: Get Better Results from Your Company Page [SLIDESHARE]

Interesting enough, I wrote an article a few eeks ago about exactly the same subject:

Employer Branding on your LinkedIn Company Page – A myriad of missed opportunities

 - http://micvadam.wordpress.com/2013/07/01/employer-branding-on-your-linkedin-company-page-a-myriad-of-missed-opportunities/

It is truely a missed opportunities for many companies.  I am currently doing rtesearch on recruitment companies and their company pages and the results are staggeringly bad!   Interim results show less than 50% having a cover picture and 60%+ no services or products...  More to come after the summer.

On A Lesson on Hiring a Social Media Manager from the Cathryn Sloane Firestorm

To me there are 3 components that make a person (of any age) a good social media manager: Knowledge of the tools, Business savvy and understanding that and being able to make the online world integrate seamlessly with the offiline world.

The goal of social media is to contribute to the company bottomline.  It is not about social media itself (which is what a lot of social media managers think, but about generating revenue and profits for the company.

Can we please keep in mind that social media is just a set of tools in your complete business and marketing approach.  Tools you can learn, business experience is something is something you get by working a number of years. 

Can we also keep in mind that social media is set of software programs and can be learned like WORD, POWERPOINT or company created program.  Age is not issue since everyone can learn these applications including Twitter, Facebook and others.  Yes, it requires a mindset to use them properly and that gain requires business and thinking experience that is something you get with the years. 

Can we also keep in mind that you use social media to reach your target audience.  I understand that young people are on social media but make no mistake that older generations are there too!  To reac these people TODAY you need to be able to think like them and there unfortunately the younger generation does not have those skills.

As a conclusion, I would like to say that age is not the driving factor but the ability to bring together the online and offline world to contribute to the business bottomline using the right tools for the right audience.

Looking forward to further constructive discussions
