Social Media Club of Dallas1,629Social Media Club of Dallas Presents: Real-Time Content Marketing in a World of Search and Social January 17, 2013 #smcdallas @smcdallas http://www.smcdallas.org   Search and Social are becoming one unified discipline, with real-time content being one of its main connective elements. However, most internet marketing practitioners silo their search and social practices, and are missing the full opportunities they could be achieving.  The solution is to harness the two through organizational change, merging of disciplines and technologies to help capture and measure the full opportunity for content marketing strategy. This talk will cover the following points: Why is search a strategic component of social media marketing, and not a tactical one? How are brands redefining themselves as publishers, and what is the new definition of publishing? How do you measure social efforts within the context of real time content marketing? How has the digital landscape changed, and why is an interdependent search and social content strategy now imperative for enterprise businesses? What are specific tips/tricks companies can do to harness the power of search and social with content? What are the new characteristics of interdependent search and social strategy, and how does a social marketer begin to approach them? Why will some companies who ignore real-time content marketing eventually die off, while other new businesses emerge and dominate? What is the "real-time user experience"? Agenda: 1.  6:00 Check-In and Networking 2.  6:45 Welcome and Intro 3.  7:00 Introduction of Sponsors 4. 7:15 Sponsor presentation  5.  7:30 Speaker -  Bill Lee @RobGarner 6.  8:45 Post Tweetup at People's Last Stand @PeoplesDallas About our Speaker: Rob Garner is a speaker, educator, strategist, and renowned expert on the topic of online marketing, search, social, and content.

Do you like the internet? Tell the FCC to protect it!

The FCC has proposed rules that would allow paid "fast lanes" on the internet. Many people (including me) not to mention hundreds of tech companies like Amazon, Twitter, Facebook, Google, and Microsoft, Yahoo--plus tons of startups--worry that the FCC's proposed rules will break the internet in very bad ways.

So here's where the internet needs you. If you feel strongly that the the internet need protection from paid fast lanes, join me in telling the FCC to protect the internet. It's easy to do! Here's how: 

1. Go to http://apps.fcc.gov/ecfs/hotdocket/list and look for docket number 14-28 ("Protecting and Promoting the Open Internet") and click on 14-28.

2. Enter your name and address, and your comments. That's it!

SXSW KEYNOTE: Adam Savage on Science + Art 
Main problem with art + science
They've been drifting apart
1) We see science and art as opposite from each other
2) We think science and art as separate from US 
3) Once we think we can't understand something, we don't try to
Ignorance does not equal bliss

How do we understand what's going on?
1) understanding
2) Talking to each other
This is called CULTURE - it's overt and covert
Culture is us; reactions to the world an situations around us
Being active is better. 

Are Art + Science separate from us?
- Culturally, we separate culture between high and low, the middle is the stuff we enjoy 
- Cinema: art that rides in the middle
- It's still split between artists or charlatans
- Tortured artists or doofuses

>>Can the maker movement bring manufacturing back to the US?

Many of these makers concepted their ideas in hackerspaces, with maker movement, but brining product to mass production is still happening offshore because US doesn't have the right automation to do things on a flexible scale. Not a cheap way to do this in the US right now. 

Does this resurge an industrial revolution in US?
Many places in China have bad work environments, suicide rates, but there are also good places. Like to promote the good ones. If makers choose the ones that treat their people well, promote good ones forming here in the US. There is cheap labor in the US ready to be leveraged.

*How to Transform Your Lead Generation via Inbound Marketing
and Social Media*
Liveblogged Notes from #multifamilysms2014  with Rebecca Corliss of HubSpot

> The old marketing playbook is broken
- 86% skip TV ads
- 91% unsubscribe from email
- 44% of direct mail isn't opened
- 200M on the Do Not Call list
- This is where inbound comes in
>> answer the changes in how marketing methods work
- In order to attract customers, marketers have to provide them with something they love

What Makes Inbound Different?
Traditional = cold calling, cold emails (spam), interruptive ads, marketer-centric
Inbound = SEO, blogging, attraction, customer-centric

Inbound Marketing is about Content

* William Shatner Closing Keynote* Content Marketing World +William Shatner at #cmworld
> One of the best viral marketing campaigns in history was a film made for 22k and brought in millions because audience thought it was real footage, but really "The Blair Witch Project" was filmed by marketers
- Value of telling a story that makes you curious about what actually happened
- When it was discovered the whole thing was a marketing ploy, it took us to a level of curiosity
- The campaign itself became a reason to see the film itself. Pure genius. Can it be done again?

- Quality/compliance - regulations/deregulations - most boring industry! 
- Before joined team, sales was all cold calling; He joined 2007 and started doing online marketing, but it wasn't converting very well
- Started doing multimedia

> People are basically lazy
- Most people would rather watch something than read it
- Using multimedia for online marketing efforts will continue to rise in popularity until it's considered the norm
- What people do after watching is a key to success

80% say they are somewhat likely to be using videos

Why LinkedIn is Going All-In with Content Marketing
> A Story: Victoria created a group, joined group, participated, started getting more traffic. Invited her to become a subject-matter expert in the group. Suggested topics, moderated conversations, answered questions. SME in Connect
- She is a thought leader (CNN, Forbes)

- Consumer Behavior has changed
- 60% through decision making process by time reach out to sales
- LinkedIn understands this

- We communicate, research, collaborate differently

* Who is King? Content or Big Data?*
Liveblogging session notes Dr. Cheemin Bo-Linn + Pam Dinder, Global integrated marketing manager, Intel (global go-to market plan)@PamDinder: slideshare.net/pdinder
- The secret to using big data to improve content marketing is....Tangram!
 - 7 piece puzzles, with triangles, parallelograms, squares
- Just a few pieces create INFINITE possibilities - from alphabets, to people shapes, to animals
- Visualize each puzzle piece as an abstract data point
- Turn the abstract into the concrete

> It's called Insight - data is different than insight
- When you make sense of it, this is insight
- You use that insight to drive content marketing

1) Turn Big Data into something concrete

Can Content Stop the Brand Preference Slide? Don E Schultz, PhD
Liveblogging notes from session at #cmworld  
Most manufacturer brand preference is declining, but not equally
They aren't being replaced by store brands
"No Brand Preference" is growing in all categories
Are all brands commoditized?

Brands getting it right:

> Managing to tell a story through content
- differentiating themselves in the market; avoiding commoditization

> The problem most brands face? They aren't telling stories
> Too caught up with 
- Gimmicks, Apps, Celebs, Deals, Price promotions
- We have forgotten to tell stories

> What is Engagement?
- Many identify it as people being excited they got a freebie/sales promotion; we've been doing that 100 yearsmas »

What's Wrong With Your Content Creation Strategy (and how to fix it)
Liveblogging #cmworld  notes from session by +Tom Webster 
> How many of you think your content strategy will be exactly the same next year as this year?
- There are people who are not here, and you'll never know why they aren't here. There's something wrong with your strategy, and you don't know what it is. 
- If you are worrying about a content creation strategy at all, then your content creation strategy is CONTENT-focused, not PEOPLE-focused
> Do you believe that brands need to become media platforms and media companies?
- We are being told this by many folks. In order to

12 Content Creation Innovations that Separate Good from Great
Liveblogging notes from this #cmworld  session with +Ann Handley 

> What's "Innovative"
- What does innovative mean?
- Isn't the idea of innovation meaning something new/unprecedented... how can you actually teach that?
- Look at examples and impart inspiration

> Innovative doesn't necessarily mean COOL
> Innovative doesn't need a huge budget or a billion dollars
> Or global brand recognition
> You don't have to have a situation or monitoring room like Oreo
> Realistically, you can do innovative content!

Influencer Marketing 
Live notes from Session #cmworld  +Rustin Banks 
> Influencer marketing versus traditional content marketing
- Prices range $200-$3000 for content marketing
- Influencers cost 10-15% higher, but you also get some distribution with it
- If you combine cost of content creation with distribution, you get a more efficient solution. 
- Amount of content created: Traditional CM, you create one piece of content, then pay for distribution
- With influencer marketing, you micro-target to the influencer's audience
- They know their audience better than you ever will; create 50-pieces of micro-targeted content to that audience for a similar cost

Sponsored Content is Mainstream

Visual Content Marketing Strategies You Probably Aren't Using and Should Livegbobbing #cmworldsession   notes, speaker: +Todd Wheatland 

"System 1 Thinking" - True engagement hasn't had to take place but you see something and have an idea what it means, what comes next. Difference between a picture of a pissed person and a math calculation like 19x32. As long as you try to work that out, eyes dilate. 
This is "System 2 Thinking

In the social media era, we think about "eyes half-opened" System 1 thinking. Meh, meh, meh. 
System 2 thinking is the WOW, epic ocntent. As marketers, we have to fight against the domination of System 1. Need a proactive balance to stretch people, include both.

2013 Search Engine Ranking Factors

Every two years, Moz runs a Ranking Factors study to determine which attributes of pages and sites have the strongest association with ranking highly in Google. The study consists of two parts: a survey of professional SEOs and a large correlation study.

I like the man versus the machine perspective here. It's interesting to see where we agree and disagree. Thanks for this +Moz, +Cyrus Shepard and Matt Peters (who I can't find on Google+).
