Top 10 Steps to Gaining Social Media Success
Experian recently published research proving that an email marketing message that is shared within the social networking sphere delivers approximately five times as many forwards than a campaign email that features a single Forward To A Friend link. A surprising 2010 survey of major chain retailers in the United Kingdom showed that fully one third of all their email campaigns failed to include even a single link to social media sites, and 89% did not include links to a blog!

In order to maximize the results from your social media and viral marketing strategies, and to avoid falling into the same traps as some really huge companies that should know better, here are the Top 10 Steps to Gaining Social Media Success.
It Always Comes Back to Content

Email marketers can learn a valuable lesson by considering the sea change instituted by the new Google Caffeine site-indexing algorithm. Overnight, sneaky SEO tricks were rendered extinct, and content became king once again.

In an increasingly fragmented email marketing universe, where your customers bounce around like free electrons in a social media field, the most basic key to successful campaigns remains not the tricks, the ploys and the legerdemain, but the quality and relevance of the content.

Read about why It Always Comes Back to Content.
Is Your Campaign Underperforming? Taguchi It!

In the late Fifties, at a time when email was a futuristic concept only seen in sci-fi, a Japanese engineer and statistician named Genichi Taguchi compiled the basics of a method designed to improve the manufacturing quality of textile mills. Half a century later, Dr. Taguchi's method is revolutionizing online marketing. You can apply his unique concepts to optimize the effectiveness of your email messages, landing page layouts or any element of your campaign's presentation to your prospects.

Fully featured Taguchi implementation is not cheap, but when you consider the level of improvement it can provide in the extremely brief amount of time it takes, it could be the best campaign investment you've made this year.

So Is Your Campaign Underperforming? Taguchi It!

More than nine in ten email marketers choose Facebook when combining email and social networking in their email campaigns.
According to eMarketer, if all the time spent on the mobile web in June 2010 was condensed into a single hour, US internet users would have spent 25 minutes of that checking email. This far exceeds social networking's seven minute total.
