Your LinkedIn profile is more valuable than your resume.

Don’t believe me? Well it’s the truth and here’s why:

According to Mashable, LinkedIn is growing every quarter and has now reached over 250 million active users in over 200 countries around the world. When it comes to networking, being able to get your name in front of an audience that large is clearly a winning strategy but the reason for using LinkedIn is far more than a mere numbers game.

How to use Google Plus and Pinterest in unison as powerful social media tools for a Real Estate agent to increase their online visibility.

The ultimate goal of any social media strategy is to get more visitors to your website. It is a long process, but worth it because you have to take the time to grow your followers and build a strong bond with them.

Becoming a social business

See on Scoop.itSocial Media Tips by FMMG

Social media can be a great meeting place for businesses and their customers. If you’ve been paying attention to the social space lately, you’ll see a common thread: companies trying to figure out how to connect with customers (and potential customers!).

One might think it’s an easy task for consumer brands. Tweet a coupon and customers will buy. Folks tend to have personal connections (think Apple, the Green Bay Packers, Chevy, Coke and so on) with these products and brands. B2B marketers challenge themselves all the time to create the environments that encourage these interactions.

But how strongly does one feel toward a B2B brand? As it turns out, pretty strong. AdWeek recently featured some insight into how these brands are making strides to become a social business.

Is Your Website Mobile Ready? Why Your Mobile Site Needs to be Optimized for Conversion!

See on Scoop.itSocial Media Tips by FMMG

Mobile commerce is exploding according to Stephen Pavlovich of Conversion Factory. At the recent Search Love conference in San Diego Stephen shared that “as smartphones and tablets become more common – and network speeds increase rapidly – more users are switching to their mobile”.

He said that “Within two years, 1 in 4 sales are expected to come from a mobile device”. Stephen believes most companies think it’s enough to have a mobile site, but haven’t started to optimize it for conversion.

David Moth of Econsultancy recently wrote a blog focusing on Why mobile is key to an effective multichannel strategy where he stated 44% of smartphone owners have used their mobile to find details about a retailer (e.g. nearest outlet or opening times), up from 32% in 2012.

Are you aware of how (well) you engage?

See on Scoop.itSocial Media Tips by FMMG

There are a few social media monitoring tools out there these days. You get the basics out of tools like Facebook’s Insights or LinkedIn’s company page statistics. There’s a variety of good tools from many vendors offering more than the basics.

And then there’s some being bought up by the likes of IBM, Cisco and Oracle. The market has matured enough that there are tools for just about every social business maturity level.

And here’s another one…

Sprout Social, which already offers a good social media management and engagement tool, throws another one into the game. This one, though, is unique (…and free!). No matter your organization’s social business maturity level, Sprout Social’s new #BePresent experiment offers an insight I’ve not seen in any other tool: engagement.

Using Google+ Hangouts to Promote Your Business – Social Media Revolver

See on Scoop.itSocial Media Tips by FMMG

Google+ Hangouts are encouraging enterprising business owners to capture the imagination of their audience in new ways.

While Google started out for personal reasons, they have since grown their empire to assist business-savvy people every single day. Now Google+ is considered one of the more important social networks for promoting your blog or business, and exciting new features such as Hangouts are encouraging enterprising business owners to capture the imagination of their audience in new ways.

The History of Google+

Google has a history of getting involved in all aspects of using the internet, and social networking is no exception. But Google’s first few attempts at building social networks failed miserably, and the attempt that didn’t fail, Orkut, never grew to prominence in the United States. With social networks booming left and right, they felt the pressure to create a social network to keep up with their competition – Facebook and Twitter. Google+ was born.
