facebook: What is Social Marketing? - 02/13/09 10:06 AM
Originally posted at Goodtree & Co :: Blog Ever wonder about all the buzz surrounding Facebook, Twitter and other social networks as marketing channels? Here’s a brief summary. The term “social marketing” dates from the 1970’s and originally defined a concept of using marketing for social good. Today, social marketing means employing user-generated channels on the internet to achieve business goals like reaching a broader audience and motivating action. Social Marketing Channels Here’s a quick run down of some popular social networks and how businesses are using them as marketing channels: Facebook - Businesses can create pages, groups and ads.

We continue to install WordPress for clients at an ever increasing pace. But we stopped calling it a Blog. Sure, the blogosphere gets bigger every year. The pool of experts continues to expand (you know you’re one if you read ProBlogger). But even more key, the pool of non-experts is really taking off. Two things are widening the audience for blogs: Better options for integrating blogs into web pages and social sites “Subscribe by email” Better Options Back in the day (last year), you could re-publish your blog as html, allowing you to place it on a web page.

facebook: Advertising on Facebook - 10/14/08 03:27 PM
Our roads and bridges may be crumbling, but our information infrastructure is growing like kudzu. One of the most interesting new developments is the expansion of advertising opportunities on Facebook. THE FIRST STEP The first thing to do if you want to advertise on Facebook is get yourself a profile. It's free. Ads are used to promote Facebook Pages. Pages are associated with your profile. You can build an unlimited number of pages on Facebook. But you can only have ONE profile. The rules and regs are very specific. You cannot create a second identity for your business.
