The Third Way
The Optimist says, "The glass is half full."
The Pessimist says, "The glass is half empty."
The Marketing Consultant says, "Your glass needs re-sizing."
You go to a party and you see an attractive girl across the room. You go up to her and say, "Hi, I'm great in bed, how about it?"
That's Direct Marketing.
You go to a party and you see an attractive girl across the room. You give your friend a buck. She goes up and says "Hi, my friend over there is great in bed, how about it?"
You go to a party and see an attractive girl across the room. You somehow get her mobile number. You call and chat her up a while and then say "Hi, I am great in bed, how about it?"
You go to a party and see an attractive girl across the room. You recognize her. You walk up to her, refresh her memory and get her to laugh and giggle and then suggest, "Hi, I am great in bed, how about it?"
That's Customer Relationship Management.
You go to a party and you see an attractive girl across the room. You stand straight, you talk soft and smooth, you open the door for the ladies, you smile like a dream, you set an aura around you playing the Mr. Gentleman and then you move up to the girl and say, "Hi, I am great in bed, how about it?"
That's Hard Selling.
You go to a party, you see an attractive girl across the room. SHE COMES OVER and says, "Hi, I hear you're great in bed, how about it?"
Now THAT is the Power of Branding.

1. Follow leaders in your industry and learn from themRead more27.12.2012
(i.e., see how they use social networks and adopt their tactics). No shame in copying here, it's all about business!
2. Find and follow future customers
(i.e., monitor social media conversations for certain problems that you can solve for users). On Twitter, you can do it by following trends and keywords. On Facebook, find and join groups of interests. Learn what is important for people and offer proper help.
3. Give value.
Offer to your followers something meaningful (i.e., things or information that they might want to use).
4. Communicate regularly.
Don't abandon your audience for too long - it may soon turn to other sources.
5. Don't be stiff, be yourself instead!
Use simple, yet interesting language. Use your personality in posts to show your human side, not a boring cliché.
You can also use Klout
to check the worthiness of following certain users (particularly, good for bullet point 1) and to engage your existing followers by giving them +K - provides better connection between them and your brand.
Be advised, Klout has been recently losing audience for its new and unclear scoring model. But hey, if it works for you after a trial, then use it with confidence!
Now, when you've done all that, it is time to weigh in the results of your social media marketing messages. At OLDI
, we like using Bitly
(for easy URL shortening and statistics) and BufferApp
(for scheduling of posts and real real-time stats).

There is no doubt that social media
has become a part of our lives and it is here to stay. Moreover, most of us cannot imagine a day without using it. Social media certainly brings convenience and easiness to our communication process. Thus, infinitely popping social-media "gurus," "ninjas," and "experts"
tirelessly preach their know-how of making it work for everyone.
But does it?.. Besides obvious benefits, social media has drawbacks and misfits
, of which we (especially, marketers and PR people) should be aware... Why not recognize them through the prism of this funny video
