Google + — All You Need to Know (at Least for Now)

Mashable / Web Pro News / iMedia Connection / Marketing Professor spacer
Google + has hit big with 10 million users in a couple of weeks. The original Google+ release was not intended for brands, but many signed up and were summarily deleted by Google. Now, Google is running a pilot for selected brands and companies. Sorry, it's already too late to sign up. But, here are the key articles on Google +. First look at Mashable's comprehensive Google+: The Complete Guide. Then, take a look at iMedia Connection's article on 10 Potential Brand Benefits of Google+. Web Pro News succinctly captures much of what you need to know in 39 Things You Should Know About Google+. In a well-organized "how to" piece, Marketing Professor goes one better with 40 Google Plus Tips for Newbies. With app developers hard at work even before Google+ was announced, Mashable recommends 5 Chrome Extensions that Improve Google+.

You're Using the Wrong Social Media Metrics

Click Z spacer
Measuring social media is in its early innings and most everyone agrees there is no gold standard approach quite yet. John Lovett opines in You're Using the Wrong Social Media Metrics that most of today's metrics are "digital trivia" with little value. Effective social metrics must be outcome based and report on the true value of social media to the business, he maintains.

Definitive Guide to Marketing Metrics & Analytics

Marketo spacer
We don't normally recommend self-serving white papers, but Definitive Guide to Marketing Metrics & Analytics is chock full of worthwhile information and approaches. You need to register to get it. But, you do know how to avoid giving your corporate e-mail address, right? Answer: Create a Hotmail or Yahoo! Mail address and profile for the specific purpose of registering for white papers without giving away all your corporate information.

How to Make Measurement Fun

Beth Kanter spacer
Beth Kanter jokes that asking How to Make Measurement Fun is a bit like asking how to make going to the dentist fun — or funerals. Nonetheless, the article manages to suggest approaches that take some of the pain out of measurement and also produce better reports.

Do You Know What Social Media Marketing Really Costs?

Click Z spacer
Proponents of social media marketing have probably never toted up the costs — but Heidi Cohen does in detailed line item fashion in Do You Know What Social Media Marketing Really Costs?. Just count the costs: near 30 line items. At the very least, the article offers a realistic view of actual costs and a pretty good budgeting template.

Six Reasons Every Brand Should Blog

Huffington Post spacer
With the rise of Twitter and Facebook, many companies and brands are reluctant to blog.

The PR Video Primer

MediaPost / Arketi Group / O'Dwyer's PR / iMedia Connection spacer
Most PR professionals are writers, not video producers. As a result, video is an underutilized PR tool. Yet video can often accomplish far more than words. 10 Reasons Why PR Professionals Should be Using Social Video provides solid suggestions on how social video — that is, video distributed through social media — can be added to the PR arsenal of most organizations. Add to those suggestions 4 Ways PR Professionals Can Use Video to Reach Target Audiences from Arketi Group. But, be careful of using video news releases (VNRs), once a staple of public relations. According to O'Dwyer's PR, the FCC Cites a Decline in VNRs resulting from enforcement actions. Now, YouTube is the hot channel for promotional videos. YouTube Etiquette for 2011 explains how to best employ online video for marketing and public relations.

Social Media Strategy in One Slide

Christopher S. Penn spacer
As someone who tends to be comprehensive (lengthy? verbose?), I had to admire the attempt to compress Social Media Strategy in One Slide. More importantly, the one slide contains as much insight as many 30-minute PowerPoint presentations.

Google Posts the Best Doodle in the World

Beta News spacer
Sometimes it can be a bit scary what companies know about you — and how they can deploy that information to target and individualize marketing programs. Take a look at Google Posts the Best Doodle in the World. The technology behind it isn't all that complicated, but does it freak you out just a little bit?
