  1. Catching some of the key oversights, yet so simple, often not seen in social media: show you LISTEN; if you ask a question, share the answers!

    Fans want to feel personally invested, so give them a chance to be part of the game, the organization, the larger community — designing a logo, picking a merchandise item to be discounted, facilitate fans leading conversation and meeting each other, pick music in-arena, pick 3 stars, so much more….Ever out of ideas? The fans are full of them!

    I’ve been pondering polls forever; mutually beneficial — learn about fans [better marketing, better partners], fans get better product offerings [pizza instead of burgers, weekend game plans instead of plans based on opponent, this shirt or that one to be a contest prize- product exposure 🙂 – love it!

    Quick additions — exhort fans to ‘tag’ their friends. If I win to tickets to the @team game, I’m taking @friend with me [for Twitter or FB]; spread the word! Also, attract new users by showcasing that you’re listening: show fan-submitted comments or pics in game programs or in-game screens, fan-created game headlines/analysis, social media sections or post/pre game events, personalized/exclusive merchandise created by fans [i.e. shirt with a team-related hashtag that grew organically marketed to followers/fans].

    Could have a few hours of chat on this. Fun subject…makes social media fun!

    Of course, the caveat — amplify the voice of the fan at your own risk and/or discretion, every game has a winner and a loser and fans live in the moment; you may not want a fan-generated headline after a lopsided loss, so don’t make promises you can’t keep.

  3. Pingback: 宅地
  4. Pingback: 必要

  6. As we enter another year on this century, many companies came up with their ideas and plans regarding their respective arranged Mergers and Acquisitions in 2012.
    There is competition involving the channels for enhancing the TRP.

  7. The results may not be observed from the day one, but over a long run it can surely have
    a remarkable difference on the marketing promotion scenario.

    * Be ready and be quick – don’t exacerbate the problem by letting the comment sit out there
    for more than a few hours without a good resolution. This will allow you to save time while gaining your business more
    exposure on Linked – In. There is a tool that lots
    of small business neglect. Set aside time
    in your schedule each week to dedicate to marketing activities.
    Social engineering can be performed through pretexting, phishing, baiting and mining
    social networks. It doesn’t have to be huge and, in reality, a lot of what you’ll be paying for is expertise, provided you’re not running the entire
    campaign yourself. The only way to make your followers
    convert is to guide them along the path. And time is something entrepreneurs often find in small supply,
    so if your Social Media strategy is too demanding you may find you spend too much time managing it and too little actually producing money.

    How will you measure those goals using metrics you analyze.

  8. In recent years, provincial governments across Canada
    have recognized that the increase in obesity rates is causing a
    financial strain on Canada’s healthcare system. Examples include:
    potatoes, pumpkin, corn, bananas, peas, grapes, milk, apples, yoghurt,
    oranges, etc. There’s many things that people need to keep in mind is to maintain that overall good
    health and that is having a balanced diet.
