New Rules for Old Marketing Strategies

New Rules for Old Marketing StrategiesThere’s no denying it. Marketing strategies have changed, and they’ve changed a lot. While the role of marketing may not have changed – in that the goal is still to meet the needs and wants of consumers — other factors such as corporate attitude, marketing approaches — not to mention marketing function — and the power dynamic between buyer and seller certainly have. These extensive changes are, for the most part, due to the rapid evolution of technology.

The changes in technology are doubling its pace each year. Today’s marketers are now faced with the additional challenge of working with devices that allow consumers quick and easy access to an endless portal. This facilitated and evolving technology has changed the way businesses connect, collect information and interact. In an attempt to keep up, experts suggest doing whatever it takes:

Marketing team to research department
There was a time employees looked forward to the annual marketing conference, the conference that was arranged each year to educate staff on the latest business advancements. Today, however, your business’s marketing team should really be a research department. Marketing techniques and online tools are advancing at a record pace, again, almost doubling each year, making that annual conference insufficient. Cutting edge marketing is demanding and so is keeping up with all the latest platforms that can help your business.

Change to accommodate social media
There’s a new operator in town and it’s called the consumer. There was a time when marketing was not social, which meant the rest of the business didn’t revolve around what the marketing department did…or didn’t do. Today, however, that is not the case. Social media means your company needs to be an open book. It needs to be social, interactive and responsive.

Exchange old marketing slogans for new multimedia
This new marketing world has experienced a shift from punchy marketing slogans to multimedia content that moves people. To keep your company in the game, consider hiring creative talent that can produce videos, broadcast media, implement technical skills and write content that is meaningful.

On the other side of the marketing coin lies an element that has not changed: a unique selling proposition. It’s just as important now as it was before to be extraordinary, meaningful and to deliver on your promise. Making the effort to always create a better user experience will often result in a repeat user experience.

Online Marketing Tip: Learn to Like Google+

Posted on 15 Aug 2014 | Author Stefanie | Comments No comments | Tags

Online Marketing Tip: Learn to Like Google+These days our devices may be overloaded with platform choices and knowing which ones to choose can be overwhelming. However, making hasty decisions could cost you in the long run, especially if you’re involved in online marketing.  Although there are other social media networks known for their ability to share and comment, Google+ continues to gain popularity.

While some joke that only Google employees use Google+, this fast-growing social sharing option has exceeded 540 million users, 300 million of which are active on a monthly basis. Not exactly the Google ghost town others are claiming. Aside from posting and plusing, Google is also a leader in search engine optimization and Google Authorship, two important factors any content marketer needs to care about. Moreover, Google is responsible for Google images, drive, docs, gmail, YouTube and analytics, and are not the networking site to ignore.

Google co-founder Larry Page admits that sooner or later, those ignoring Google+ will suffer the consequences: Google search will in turn, ignore you. While some remain adamant that G+ is nothing more than Google’s attempt to clone Facebook, the site has grown invaluable to millions for its sharing, learning and networking, not to mention content marketing.

Here are a few G+ facts that you need to know:
•    Between May and October of 2013, Google+ experienced a 58 percent increase in users.
•    Google+ is not just another interactive website. While it offers social interaction, it is part of an enormous network that includes, aside from the listed above, Google maps, earth, wallet, finance and Google search. Google Search is likely the most important feature non-G+ users may want to keep in mind.
•    Google’s search algorithm looks for engagement and response and relevance and already favors content that originates in Google+.
•    Content that is original, as well as site users that post regularly, rank higher in Google Search.
•    Google+ is an excellent resource for businesses – not only techies. It is quickly becoming the place for large corporations, management, technology, small businesses and international companies to connect and influence.

While Google admits there is a steep learning curve to G+ and have made efforts to simplify its platform, some still feel it’s too complicated. This is where hiring a professional content management coach can work to your benefit. An experienced professional can save you a lot of time and frustration by seamlessly integrating your brand into other Google products, such as Google Apps for business. As Google says, this is one platform where you get out what you put in!

Is It True? Are Business Women Dominating the Social Media World? Yes, Say Experts

Posted on 14 Aug 2014 | Author Stefanie | Comments No comments | Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

Is It True? Are Business Women Dominating the Social Media World? Yes, Say Experts It’s difficult not to notice how technology and social media have affected the lives of nearly everyone. In our heads-down society – as we text and tweet away – it’s hard not to get caught up in the social media storm. It’s enough to leave anyone wondering who then, are these people buzzing through the lines of our lives? You may be surprised (or not) to learn it’s women, not men, who lead the pack when it comes to online socializing.

The lead is so large, in fact, that experts say women now dominate nearly every social media network out there. As with all rules, there’s always an exception, and in this case, it’s LinkedIn. This professional networking site is the one place where male users outnumber their female counterparts. Otherwise, sites such as Tumblr, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest boast more women than men. And not just by small margins.

According to sources such as Burst Media and Pew Research Center, women are taking over social media. Statistics show that 76 percent of adult American women are Facebook users, checking their account multiple times a day. This compared to 66 percent of U.S. men admitting to be avid Facebook users, of which only 33 percent log in to their account on a daily basis.

Research concludes that American women are the top social media users. This includes all social media platforms. The statistics look something like this:

  • Pinterest: Women 33% Men 8%
  • Facebook: Women 76% Men 66%
  • Twitter: Women 18% Men 17%
  • Tumblr: Women 54% Men 46%
  • Instagram: Women 20% Men 15%
  • LinkedIn: Women 19% Men 24%

Not only do women utilize social media platforms more than men, they use social media on a daily basis. Stats show that 30 percent of American women use social media several times a day compared to only 16% of American men. This means, of course, that it’s women who are more likely to interact with business brands online. Studies have found the average female consumer looks something like this:

  • Access offers and coupons: Women 53% Men 36%
  • Makes comments: Women 28% Men 25%
  • Shows online support: Women 54% Men 44%
  • Stay current: Women 39% Men 33%

Women are also known to access more news through social media platforms than men. Findings show that 58 percent of American women get their daily news via social media, compared to about 42 percent of American men. Are you wondering where these women go for their daily feed? Approximately 58 percent head to Facebook (compared to 42 percent of men), while 52 percent prefer Google Plus, compared to 48 percent of men.

Women are also leading the trend when it comes to mobility, with 46 percent preferring smartphones and 32 percent relying on Tablets. This has lead marketing managers and businesses of every niche to realize that women are driving the growth of visually-based social media and are likely to continue dominating the online world for years to come.

Do You Have Bad Social Media Habits? Find Out What Common Mistakes Businesses Are Making

Posted on 13 Aug 2014 | Author Stefanie | Comments No comments | Tags

Do You Have Bad Social Media Habits? Find Out What Common Mistakes Businesses Are MakingWe all know how important social media is to the success of our business, but have you ever given thought to if you’re doing it correctly?  You may be surprised to learn that a great many social media users are not conducting themselves appropriately when it comes to online etiquette.

If you didn’t even know there was such as thing – as social media etiquette – you’re not alone. Turns out many businesses are conducting annoying social media habits. Here is a list of the most common inappropriate uses of social media and how these habits could be ineffectively, affecting you.

Too much talk
While the basis of social media is its interactive nature, one of the most common mistakes businesses make is to talk too much about themselves and their business. Offering valuable information to the point consumers can respond in kind, should be your goal. However, a lot of people post self-congratulatory updates and tweets that give readers the impression you’re only interested in you.

Failing to post at all

Perhaps you’ve finally resolved to not over-talk, but be careful about wandering to the extreme opposite end by not posting at all. Social media researchers have noticed a trend in those who let a few days slip past with any tweet or post. Once they do get back online they overdo it. Overcompensating is an excellent way to make your posting matters worse. It’s better to schedule posts or pace your tweets by using scheduling tools such as Hootsuite or Buffer.

Requesting a share
While one goal of social media is to spread your word, many users admit that being asked to share or retweet posts is annoying. Making the request is seen as needy and has the opposite effect you want, in that it tends to discourage others from sharing your post. If you’re sending the right content with the right people, they’ll voluntarily share.

Ignoring inquiries
Nearly every one of us has, at some time, been ignored by a company and can relate to the dissatisfying experience that came from it. Ignoring inquiries and neglecting to respond to your online customers is a mistake some businesses are making. If you have business-related inquiries streaming in from your social media pages, it’s just as important to answer them as if they were questioning you live and in person.

Overusing hashtags
Innovative techies are constantly introducing new ways for us to make every post and tweet count. Hashtags are a great way to help your content be found. They are also helpful for sorting, compiling and categorizing online information that users are looking for. But inundating your post with multiple hashtags only clogs up your post and comes across as unprofessional. A great rule of thumb is to limit yourself to two hashtags at a time.

Practicing proper social media etiquette is one of the easiest ways to get favorable online results for your efforts. Always remember you represent your brand, so be mindful of posting inappropriate material and always respond to your audience in a calm, friendly manner to gain all the marketing benefits offered by online platforms.

3 Core Marketing Skills Everyone Should Learn

Posted on 08 Apr 2014 | Author Stefanie | Comments No comments | Tags

3 Core Marketing Skills Everyone Should LearnIf you have a business then you have, by default, a role to play in its marketing. Today’s competitive world has made marketing an integral part of the function of a business. Whether you run a small business, own a large company or want to promote a book, you will need to include smart marketing into your daily work routine.

Since marketing can be a complicated subject, many entrepreneurs feel it is best left up to the experts. However, it is possible for every business person to gain at least a few of the core skills necessary to generate successful results.

Get to know Pareto’s Principal
It’s likely you already know this principal but refer to it as many others do, which is the 80/20 rule. Originally it was the mathematical formula created by Vifredo Pareto to describe the wealth of the world: that 20 percent of the population had 80 percent of the wealth.

In business, the 80/20 rule is equally as important for savvy entrepreneurs to recognize that 80 percent of their sales will come from 20 percent of their customers. Understanding where your potential sales lie and where they inevitably come from will tell you what customers to target and thus, where to aim your marketing efforts.

Learn how marketing and communication go hand-in-hand
When you’re trying to market your brand, communication is everything. If you do not possess the ability to get your message out, to entice or attract an audience, it’s quite likely your business will not survive. The communication aspect of marketing is about understanding the needs of your customers and potential audience. Nearly every successful marketing strategy contains a healthy mixture of press advertising, email marketing and those traditional face-to-face luncheons.

Get social!
If you’re still digging both feet in the ground in an attempt to avoid being part of the online phenomena, you need to reconsider. It’s imperative you, or at the very least, your brand, join in the world of social media. If you truly do not enjoy social media – numerous statistics show that women are much more ‘social’, both in person and online, than men – then hire a professional social media marketer.

Regardless of how you feel about it, social media marketing tools are extremely powerful marketing tools that a modern business cannot afford to ignore. Use social media to your advantage by setting up an online page. From there you will be able to collect invaluable consumer information, participate in direct conversations with people and capture vital feedback for no cost other than your time.

Over that last decade, technology has entered the lives of nearly every person on the planet, changing the way we do business. While those all-important traditional business skills certainly continue to hold value, it’s the skills of the modern marketer that will get your business ahead.

Authors Getting Real About Social Media

Posted on 25 Oct 2011 | Author Stefanie | Comments No comments | Tags

, , ,

Here is the tenth installment I found on book tours, from a company that is closing their doors soon, so I thought I would pass it on to you guys!  There is a lot of different ways to use social media for your promotions and launches including your book tour.  I like how Kevin approaches this subject, he talks about knowing your target market and using the right tools for it.  When you think about your audience think about them in all their dimensions, paint a 3D picture of them.  What age/sex/gender are they?  Where do they like to hang out?  What is their lifestyle like?  Knowing this will help you reach them more efficiently. 

When you are ready check out your social media tools at


All the best,


Authors Getting Real About Social Media

Last time we mentioned we’d be discussing social media and technology in this segment of our series. We are not the first to go here. The articles and books indicating what technological wizardry authors should be using to get their books noticed are myriad. Stacked together, they could block a garage door. One Google search on “Should authors tweet?” or “social media for writers” will send them towards you like a fire hose stuck up your left nostril.

So we will refrain because who needs more from a fire hose? Instead this chapter of our series will be our shortest. When talking about technology and authorship, the message we must bring to has between supported and repeated by the previous 8 segments. We’ll only say it slightly differently.

“When selecting the appropriate tools for promoting your book, choose the best fit for your book and your reader, not the shiniest toy.”

I have given hundreds of talks to writers over the last decade and I’ve taken to doing a quick scan of technology news the day before an engagement. Because if a publication of any size has written about Twitter/YouTube/Insert new hot technology company name here that week, come Q&A I will invariably hear…

  • Should I be tweeting?
  • Should I be YouTubing?
  • Should I be using something I don’t know/don’t understand/and haven’t even pronounced correctly because I read about it in Newsweek?

There are three false assumptions at work here. 1) Authors assume that promotional success awaits whoever grabs the newest tool first 2) That “newest” means “best” and 3) If they don’t grab it, they will miss the legions of readers using this tool and saying “we would have bought that book if only the author had used New Tool X to find us.

Let’s look at each of these missteps and how they can be framed as strong, productive questions instead of acts of desperation.

Assumption #1: No tool is a magic wand. If using a social media tool meant instant bestsellerdom, everyone would do it and the bestseller list would be 95 million books long. We hear about the authors who used a tool well because it is an exception to a rule, not a solution for everyone. So instead of asking “should I be using x” let us start an alternative.

Instead: What is my book and what is the right tool for it? I know I’ve said this a million times in our series but I cannot emphasize it enough. Without knowing your book, no tool will work on its behalf. Without understanding the lock, it’s pointless to look for the key.

Return to our previous exercises and ask: “What is my book. Who are my readers? Which tool would reach them best?”

Answer to the last of those inquiries follows…

Assumption #2: New tools are just that. New. Not better. New. Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Goodreads are all tools. Tools do some things well and some things not so well. Because they are digital tools doesn’t make them any different than tools made of wood and steel. You would use a hammer when hanging a picture but not to trim your fingernails.

So what is the tool and how well does its purpose line up with your book? Equally as important: How well does the tool line up with your strengths as an author? Are you hilarious and fun in quick bursts? Twitter might be for you then. Can your book be divided into short exciting segments (travel books, cookbooks for example). Twitter again is a good fit. Flickr might be a good fit if you are a skilled amateur photographer or if your book lends itself to visual images (guide books, coffee table, location-dependent novels). If you’ve got 500 Facebook friends already, why ignore that avenue?

Instead: Right tool. Right book. Any tool you are curious about do a “what is Tool Name” search on Google. Then ask yourself “What is this tools primary function and is that function a good fit for my book? Then do a Google search on “what’s the best way to use Tool Name.” Read it. Does it sound like something you could do well even if it makes you a little uncomfortable? If yes, then do it. If no, then don’t. Because…

Assumption #3: I’ll be punished if I don’t tweet/YouTube/Facebook! My readers will abandon me! If our readers are gathering like crazy somewhere and we don’t know it, let’s call this a high-class problem and move on. The only tool you’re going to be punished for not using is one blatantly obvious. No website, no listing on BookTour (ho ho) is grounds for abandonment. Everything else…

Instead: Research. Think a tool might be right for you; spend some time Googling “Authors who use Tool Name” well. What can you learn from them and apply to you and your book. Or go one step bigger and look at the careers of the successful authors in your genre (don’t go nuts. If you write mysteries, study your favorite local mystery author, not James Patterson) and see what they’ve done. Then steal it from them.

Technology and Social Media are not fairy dust. They are methods by which authors, readers and books form three legged and enduring relationships. Relationships beyond “buy something from me” and “I really enjoyed that thing you wrote.” Social media are methods to maintain ongoing communication with your readers, for them to see you and your books as relatable, as something they wish to know and support. It is very hard to remain unknowable while maintaining a Facebook page or a twitter account. But that doesn’t mean you need to be spilling your guts to your readers every five minutes. But they might like to know about the process of creation of your next book, what you’re reading, and your thoughts on the future of publishing etc. You won’t know until you give them an opportunity to ask you. And if you feel like you don’t know how, you’re not alone but that’s not an excuse. How to use a social media tool is not a state secret. Find others in your field who are using them well (again Google) and ask them. launched a ten-part series on Book Promotion called “Everything you Wanted to Know about Book Promotion but were Afraid to Ask” written by CEO Kevin Smokler. Kevin has been advising authors and publishers on marketing and promotion for nearly a decade and has written and lectured on the topic throughout North America.

I’m doing something out of character…

Posted on 02 Sep 2009 | Author Stefanie | Comments 1 comment | Tags

, , , , , ,

Im doing something out of character...Ok, I have to be quick as I writing to you as I am doing something a little out of character (ok a lot) and being sneaky here (but its for a good cause – so  conscious back off ), sorry about that – my karma was berating me for a second there.

Ok here goes, the fact is that my social media partner in Get it Done Today (you know the sold out 2 months ago  ‘we do it for you” social media buzz package) has just fried her computer.

Don’t worry she’s get it fixed (that’s what husbands are for), but right now she’s really distracted ….heh..heh…so after I offered her useless help (as a good partner does and really if it requires something more than putting polysporin and a band-aid on it, I’m lost).

So back to you – I thought of a brilliant  IDEA as I let out my evil laugh to get you hooked up social media buzz and at practically cost!  I thought  – “hey while she’s distracted I could easily email my list and offer 5 people the same deal we already SOLD OUT on.”  Ha Ha!

The reason I wanted to do this is because very soon we’re unveiling a NEW price  on this package – and you guessed it, its higher.

However, don’t fret it’s STILL LOWER than any other company- so we’re still massively competitive and what we offer is NOT OFFERED anywhere else – we are truly overstuffing our services for you- we give you waaaaaay more than anyone else is and believe us we know as we can read through web copy  hype and actually figure out what they’re offering and what they offer is a way bigger profit margin and minimal work for you.  Maybe that makes them better “business men” than us- but we take the approach that we want to create your stuff as if it was our own.  So if we need to stay up til 2am to get something done right, we will.  Maybe on paper that doesn’t make us as good of business people as we’re doing that while they’re out drinking with their friends telling them how much money they just made off of you- but that’s the way we roll.

Wow – I woke up in a really weird mood today.  What the heck did I eat yesterday?

And really when it comes to social media buzz just getting up a few webpages is not going to do anything for you- it’s a waste of money, you need hidden seo techniques on top, blogging techniques, hidden on the page (but legal)  strategies that make a HUGE difference from a massively profitable blog or twitter page and a pretty one.

Therefore we know our action packed pages will work way better for you than our competitors overpriced stale ones.  Plus price wise even if we doubled our price we’d still be the best DEAL on the net – however it will never be the steal it is now as we offered on the BUNDLE package on this webpage:

So here’s the deal… you guys know I wouldn’t be doing this if I couldn’t ask Marney for forgiveness later, and I may have to buy back Marney’s love by sending her flowers or heck maybe a new laptop – so this is an adventure and test in friendship.  I’m excited and giggling like a 10 year old who just stole a cookie.

And by the way I have a super conscience – so any cookie I took when I was 10, in seconds I ran to my parents, burst into tears with half the cookie eaten confessing and asking for punishment (weird kid I know).  My sister used to hate that “tattle tale” (or as I prefer to word it as “honest” thank you) side of me.

But I’m hoping Marney will go for the $100 flowers and not the $700 laptop (pick the flowers, pick the flowers, pick the flowers) – we’ll see – I’ll keep you posted!  I’m banking on the fact that I will live through this as Marney has a wicked sense of humor and I’m totally taking advantage of her giving nature (really she’ll probably do your wash for you if you asked her). Uhhh so sweet.

So go here to sneak in this deal – before Marney finds out and changes it on the site:

Quick we only have like a day or so before someone (you know who you are – will tip her off)

Just Go To: Seriously.

You don’t have to know ANYTHING about social media or HOW it will grow your business – we’re just going to do it all for you in 30 days.  Period.  Plus we’ll show you how others have “cashed” in using this platform to help get their businesses viral and talked about.

No more looooong super boring, yawn provoking, (hey admit it) training, followed up by 4am fear and frustration saying  %$#^ now  I actually need to spend hours and hours putting this together – here’s a hint – NO YOU DON’T!  We have hired slaves to do this for you.  Not to worry.

Your job is to sit back and add up the new found traffic. Buzz to your websites, and customers.
We’ve got your back.

Your friend (and co-conspirator).
