Real Time Platform Selection

The benefit of being able to select your platforms based on need, and then quickly changing.

Gary Vaynerchuk talks about this in his book, and David Meerman Scott discusses the benefit of real time content creation.

Why Marketers Already Like Instagram Stories Better Than Snapchat

Write for two audiences - one is the audience you want to work with, the second is the audience you want to promote your content (to the audience you want to work with)

  • Conversions: Your Website.
  • Traffic: YouTube.
  • Retention and Branding: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.

Key reminder: Solve for the problem!

Last week: Content creation => content offer => persona => buyer’s journey stage

Last week:

  • Content campaign

This week:

  • Content promotion

Projects   HubSpot

Very important:

  • Promote your content on twitter at least 4 times, test different times, text and images.
  • SOCIAL PRO TIP > Social media promotion for your content offer doesn't end after just one or two posts. Schedule posts months after your content offer campaign has launched.
  • CONTENT PRO TIP > There is no perfect blog post length. Just make sure your blog post fully covers the topic and addresses your buyer persona's needs.

Academy projects to see this all together and not in your portal  > http://academy.hubspot.com/projects/customer-projects-content-offer 

Shot 7: Motivation of the Week

Facebook Advertising results for an eBook campaign: <$5 leads

Shot 9: Community Item of the Week

The results from using SlideShare with CTAs

https://inbound.org/blog/important-lessons-learned-from-over-14-million-slideshare-views 

Key point: if you write content for other sites, often they won’t let you include a CTA in the content, but they have no problem if you have a SlideShare deck embedded - which itself has a CTA.

Similar to the YouTube CTA annotation - embed a YouTube video with a CTA in it.

Shot 10: Listener Tip of the Week

Don’t automatically Promote all your FB page posts, wait for some initial feedback:

fb promotion

Then promote heavily and get optimised results:
