Some small businesses are getting creative and earning their social media followers' trust -- and their dollars -- by ditching the one-way hard sell that's all too common on Facebook and Twitter.
They understand that social-media platforms are fertile ground for potentially lucrative two-way conversations with their target customers. To these companies, there's much more to social marketing than peddling their brand story as bait for hollow likes, re-pins and re-tweets...
In content marketing, consistency is everything. In an interview with Marketing Sherpa, George Stenitzer, VP of Communications at Tellabs claims that his content marketing strategy, which he refers to as "message maps," tripled his company's yearly revenue. These message maps are nothing more than a one-page document, outlining the most important points on a given topic and are designed to keep all departments on the same page with content publishing. After using message maps for one year, Tellabs was able to triple their engagement with company-produced content, which Stenitzer says ultimately contributed to the boost in revenue...
One of the most fun and frustrating things to do working in social media is coming up with content strategies. Developing a great strategy is the opportunity to present a brand in a way that is informative, entertaining and useful. Some people create and post content on the fly; however I highly recommend that you think strategically when trying to create content that will resonate with your audience. As marketers we are competing with friends, family and other marketers for real estate in news feeds, so we have to come up with quality content. Creating a strategy can be difficult at times, so here are 5 things to think about...
When it comes to finding new customers and marketing to existing ones, email can be more effective than social media. Acquiring new customers via email marketing has quadrupled since 2009 and now comprises some 7.5 percent of all gained customers, according to a recent report from Custora, a New York City-based marketing analytics firm.
If your business isn't tapping into email marketing yet, you could be missing out on attracting new customers. There are many relatively affordable and user-friendly email marketing services available to help you create, send and track email campaigns. But which one is right for your company?....

Owning a home is at the very heart of middle-class security. It means a lifetime of memories -- of family dinners, basketball in the driveway, cookouts in the backyard, and watching your children grow up.
Your home is also a tangible connection to your community -- a critical part of the American identity. That's why having a home you can call your own is a cornerstone of what it means to have a middle-class life.
Today, President Obama will return to Phoenix to talk about the progress we need to build on in the housing market -- higher home values and helping millions refinance -- and the opportunities still before us.
It's time to help hard-working folks fulfill their dream of buying their first home. We can help responsible homeowners refinance their mortgage, and make sure middle-class families and all of those working to get into the middle class are never again on the hook to bailout certain mortgage lenders for irresponsibility and bad loans.
And that's just what President Obama outlined in Phoenix: commonsense steps that will help protect the middle class and everyone working to join it. So even as Washington gets bogged down by endless distractions and political game-playing, the President is focusing on what really matters.
But in the weeks and months ahead, we'll need your help getting the message out.
We put together a graphic that helps explain the President's plan for a more secure foundation for middle-class homeownership.
