Social Media Marketing

Importance of Social Media Marketing

Social Media Marketing is now considered as one of the most important function of any business. Large companies and programs focus on improving their function of marketing on social sites and blogs like Face book, Twitter, Pinterest and so on. Since, there are examples of many big and small businesses that made huge benefits via social media marketing. Coca-Cola has about 35,000,000 fans and this number increases by 9,000 on average a day. Disney and Starbucks have also made great progress but they still need to make efforts to reach up to the level of Coca-Cola.

When developing a social media marketing strategy, a company first has to choose suitable sites for the business since all of the social sites do not work out. Therefore, the marketing team has to make an analysis and then devise a suitable plan. Once the sites have been selected then the team needs to decide on the target market. Later, the strategies for fitting into the sites are planned so that to ensure the success of the campaign.

Tweeet Pie: the 'twecipe' book of 140-character recipes

Social Media Marketing has now become one essential ingredient of every business on fire, planning to serve community in most delicious way possible. Seemingly every big or small business can multiply its repute and sales drastically by employing social media techniques. Like the one brilliant step taken by UK cooker brand Belling, eager to reposition its name by grabbing attention of folks socializing on Twitter who love to cook and share their fun and interest with others worldwide.

The campaign was not just all about bringing in recipes of mouth watering treats in a short recipe book bearing the name of 'tweet pie', but its outstanding aspect was to limit the length of every recipe to 140 characters. This was the most engaging feature for twitter fans and audiences (Cooking up the twecipe book, 2011)

People were requested to tweet in their most quick and favorite recipes using the hashtag #TweetPie. The campaign ended up collecting over 200 'recipes' being submitted. That was not it yet, after that Umpf (PR and social media agency who carried out this campaign) got down to discovering the ideal illustrations for the book. Again,…… [Read More]

Southwest Airlines Social Media Using

Words: 3506 Length: 10 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 92272980

Only a small percentage of flights are booked using travel agents. The primary means for customers to purchase tickets is directly from the airline over the phone or online at the company's website http://www.southwest.com/. Using this method, customers have access to offers that are only available on the web.

Southwest's marketing campaign is based on setting itself apart through branding. For instance, Southwest uses a "cattle call" method of seating. Customers are not assigned seats, but board in three groups according to arrival time. This allows the airlines to board passengers more quickly. In addition to this key difference, Southwest allows passenger to change reservations without incurring any additional costs, as with other airlines. However, Southwest does not offer same-day standby on a different flight. This service is usually free on other airlines without upgrading.

Southwest is the bare bones carrier. They offer Snack Packs of prepacked goods instead of the full service meals served by other airlines. On shorter flights, they only offer snacks and a soft drink. Southwest offers free in-flight drinks, excluding alcohol. Southwest has no in-flight entertainment. However, Southwest employees often offer colorful entertainment themselves, spontaneously breaking out in song. They are known for more creative…… [Read More]

Paul Klee's Painting Style Reflects

Words: 916 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 30609950

"Color has taken possession of me; no longer do I have to chase after it, I know that it has hold of me forever. That is the significance of this blessed moment. Color and I are one," Klee said (cited by Pioch). With this revelation and the expressionist approach Klee learned under Blue Rider tutelage, Klee developed his signature style. After the First World War, both Klee and his friend and fellow expressionist Kandinsky taught at the Bauhaus School in Berlin. Klee taught at the Bauhaus School from 1921-1931. After that, Klee taught in Dusseldorf but was persecuted by the Nazis because of his work (Pioch). He moved back to Switzerland in 1933 and died there in 1940 from a disease called scleroderma.

The Bauhaus School represented a conceptual shift in art, as it celebrated design and craftsmanship as well as philosophical themes. The impact of Bauhaus on the history of art is especially evident in some of Klee's work. However, "Twittering Machine" exemplifies the core elements of both Blue Rider and Bauhaus. From Blue Rider and his experiences in Africa, Klee incorporates playful colors and abstract ideas: shapes, forms, and colors are the key elements of the painting. From…… [Read More]

IPO Leno's Quote About Creating an Artificial

Words: 1067 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 6349343

IPO

Leno's quote about creating an artificial shortage of fish draws in some lessons about the business world to the old adage. The original adage is the first part of the quote about "Give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day; teach a man to fish and he'll eat for a lifetime." This quote is talking about dependency, where the proverbial man is hungry. If you give him a fish, this is a short-term solution. He eats today, but then tomorrow he goes right back to being hungry with no fish. He needs charity again, because he lacks the skills to feed himself. When you teach him to fish, he then has the ability to feed himself. This is a skill that lasts a lifetime, so teaching the man to fish is a long-term solution to the man's hunger problem.

Leno adds the additional clause to the adage for humor. The clause "Teach a man to create an artificial shortage of fish and he will eat steak" reflects a cynical view of the capitalist ethic. The man, instead of feeding himself, is able to disrupt market forces in such a way that he creates a pent-up demand for…… [Read More]

New Media

This work will propose three potential issues or challenges to address and will identify two potential social media communication tools and describe what could be done to solve each issue using these two tools. According to Graham, (nd) Social media includes social networking platforms including Facebook and Flickr but social media can also be such as "bulletin boards, podcasts, blogs, wikis, etc." (Graham, nd) In fact, social media is "anything where users can participate, create, and share content." (Graham, nd)

Issue to Be Solved

The issue chosen to be addressed in this work in writing is the issue of government failure to adhere to constitutional values in governance in the U.S. House, U.S. Congress, Legislature, and Senate and throughout the country various State and County Courts. This is an issue that is worthy of being addressed since enactment of the Patriot and Patriot II Acts have served to cripple the application of the United States Constitution and most specifically the Bill of Rights.

Words: 3060 Length: 10 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 74612535

Bosch Company and Social Media

The Bosch Company appears to have a strong and comprehensive presence within the world of social media. This is crucial as social media is a truly powerful and invasive tool that can be used to build relationships with new customers and strengthen already existing relationships with old customers. "Building a social strategy takes time and careful attention, but the point is: you need one. Many of my friends don't watch TV, don't read magazines or newspapers, and get most of their news from Twitter and Facebook. So where will brands have the best chance of engaging my friends? On Twitter and Facebook. Social media builds brand awareness in ways that no other form of media can and reaches customers who would be otherwise unreachable" (Barbara, 2012). The Bosch Company appears to have an acute understanding of this and has worked hard to create a truly invasive presence along social media, striving to stay in touch with customers, potential customers and employees has inclusively as possible.

For example, when it comes to the Bosch Facebook page, the company has diversified their presence on Facebook, a smart and strategic move. For example, there's a Bosch Auto Parts…… [Read More]

That is primarily because "tweets" may be answered immediately upon receipt or not, depending on the circumstances of the message recipient. Needless to say, there are countless imaginable situations where phone calls between individuals and (especially) among larger groups such as classes would be impractical for which "tweets" fill the role perfectly (Welch & Welch).

The range of possible administrative and educational applications in the university setting is very broad; it includes many of the informational functions of the Internet without the same investment of attention as traditional Internet communications. Facebook and is also potentially extremely useful in many of the same ways and provides a trade-off of greatly increased full-function Internet capabilities at the expense of the immobility of desktop computers, the inconvenience of relying on a laptop being perpetually available, or the difficulties (and expense) of prolonged Internet use of cell phone devices for those applications.

Aside from numerous routine communications between students, faculty, and administration, universities may soon consider Twitter in particular to be invaluable where emergency messages must be broadcast instantaneously to large numbers of the university community as well. Ultimately, it is likely that Twitter and Facebook will revolutionize personal and professional communications in this…… [Read More]

Today the outbound telephone marketing industry has given political campaigns the ability to reach out to a large group of targeted voters in a quick and quiet way, just below the radar. This notion went way beyond the small volunteer call centers that have existed for over forty years. It was essential for the technology to be in place and widely utilized. Political campaigns could not have put into production a complete industry of dissimilar companies, large and small, with many thousands of telephones in call centers. This was a revolution as one could target using any criteria from gender, age, vote propensity, income, level of education, to presence of children. One could shape the message even within a single calling agenda, so that they may be calling all women, but the script may be different for younger women in comparison to older women. And maybe most importantly, one can collect information. "If a candidate asks each voter what issue is most important to them, they can not only find out the answers that correspond to 100,000 individual voters but they can then change the way they communicate with those voters based on their answers" (Teal, n.d.).

The Diesel brand was formed with the company in 1978. The brand has distinguished itself with Italian styling, American marketing and an emphasis on the younger consumer (Surendar & Roy, 2010). The brand image is focused on fashionability, blending the Italian and American concepts of youthful fashion. The brand is augmented by the fact that Diesel does runway shows and in many respects behaves like a high-end fashion house rather than mainstream clothing retailer.

NTN doesn't have a vision that appeal to people. It needs a new identity. For example, Upworthy appels to people on a moral level, yet NTN just focuses on the news.

Why is it of strategic importance to NowThis News (rather than simply an operational improvement)?

Because creating a new vision would open up an entirely new target market. It would necessarily have to change any of its core operations, just tweak the vision to be more relevant to people's lives and create content that is more appealing to the individual user.

How do you propose to develop a solution (your process for research, experimentation or product development )?

NTN definitely needs to do some target market research. First they need to define the target market and then through surveys or targeted interviews find out what they want in their media. Once some brainstorming has been done and the preliminary research offers some insights, the company could use some focus groups to tweak the experimental findings.

4. What resources or collaborators within NTN do you need to accomplish this?

NTN should use an independent consultant. If they try to develop everything internally then their bias will…… [Read More]

Certainly, pedagogy may be an issue. Whatever the case, human anxiety is a critical issue in the employment of Web 2.0 technology in nursing education. In an article in Nursing Education Perspectives, the issue is raised as to whether social media such as Twitter could bridge the gap. It appears that Twitter may provide a social media that ties classes together and builds classroom comradery and community in the online classroom. Faculty interviewed in the article have reported success in this area. They report that the ability to send an unshared message to the instructor was helpful and may help reduce student anxiety (Skiba, 2008, 110-111).

It appears to this author that Twitter has tremendous potential, not just in the area of class community building and reduction of student anxiety, but also in developing and adapting the tool because of the handy diagnostic tools available to analyze bands of tweets regarding subject matter. The use in the classroom could be used as a supplement to the standard online courseware in live online courses in order to preserve student privacy, thereby easing the student anxiety about the new technologies.

Turkish Youth Protests

"The rise of a global youth culture in recent decades suggests greater convergence of the experiences of young people in global cities. In Turkey, mass-based youth subcultures with links to the diaspora are emerging, paralleling the fragmentation of Turkish society…Turkish youth are torn between hopes of constructing a more participatory public sphere and disillusionment with the nation-state as the embodiment of modernity…" (Neyzi, 2001, 412).

At no time in the recent past has the world been able to see the raging protests of Turkish youth like what has been viewed over the past few days and weeks. However, many citizens with television sets in Turkey did not see the mass demonstrations by youthful protesters in Istanbul because journalists were afraid to show the live clashes with police on television. According to journalist Barak Ravid, "…many Turkish television channels hesitated to report on the protests for many long hours" (Ravid, 2013). Why are journalists afraid to show the truth about student uprisings? That's because Prime Minister Erdogan has put many journalists in prison for speaking out about his repressive strategies.

Business Use of Social Media

Social Media Marketing

Social media refers to the countless Internet-based sites and tools that facilitate and promote social interaction and networking through digitized means (Bulik, 2008). Social media marketing includes sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, and should always be included in an organization's business plan in some capacity.

Social media as a marketing genre has the power to bridge distances and communication obstacles in a highly personalized and direct way.

It is estimated that 75% of the global consumers who use the web regularly visit social media websites (Libert, 2011). Visitors are reported as spending anywhere from 3 to 6.5 hours a day on sites such as Facebook. Subscriptions for social media sites are growing by leaps and bounds.

An Examination of the Purpose and Utilization of Social Networking Websites

Alexander Graham Bell's invention of the telephone in the late 1800s revolutionized civilization.

It was not until 100 years later, in the late 1970s, that another such discovery was made. This latter discovery was that of the Internet. Many argue, furthermore, that the discovery of the Internet involves an even greater advancement in human history than Bell's telephone, for nothing has touched so many, so quickly, and so deeply as the advent of the Internet, and with it, within a relatively short time, the culmination of social networking in a variety of websites, utilize worldwide. This paper will offer a quick examination of how such websites, including Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and LinkedIn, have been utilized by individuals in the last decade to promote both personal and work-related interests.

People utilize social networking sites for many reasons but, as mentioned above, two foremost reasons are in order to enhance one's personal and professional life. Three of the websites mentioned above are known to cater mostly to personal interests, i.e. Facebook, MySpace and Twitter. LinkedIn is a website that promotes connections between professionals and would thus be utilized with…… [Read More]

It is thus difficult to single out the purpose for which a social networking site is being utilized.

Role of Social Media in Business Marketing

Words: 1890 Length: 7 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 35452092

social media strategies for business through the works of published commentators on the phenomenon (Mendelson, Haydon) and through two case studies, one a New York publishing house (Saint Martin's Press) and the other a South Carolina-based jewelry design firm (Reece Blaire). The paper argues that social media strategy for business is dependent to some extent on building a social media presence independent of the business (or at least independent of an instant monetizing strategy) as a way of building the face of the brand, and also with an awareness that the different social media platforms reach different audiences, so therefore a unified strategy will not ultimately work.

Social media is, in terms of the business world, an extremely new phenomenon. Of the big six social media platforms that exist in 2014 -- Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, YouTube, Instagram and LinkedIn -- only one (LinkedIn) actually existed as a public Internet platform ten years ago, and another (Facebook) technically existed but was still a service exclusively for Harvard University undergraduates. Yet in the past decade, the rise of these Internet platforms has essentially created an entirely new business climate: in order to justify their own market valuation, these services have had to…… [Read More]

The Internet is similar to a coral reef in that both are platforms that provide enormous opportunities for the emergence, growth, and development of other ideas or life-forms. Coral reefs are very dense and diversely populated ecosystems that are entirely dependent on the platform of the coral skeletons that make up the physical structure of the reef, just as the internet has become richly and very diversely populated with different ideas, applications, and capabilities all of which are dependent on the communication capabilities and certain fundamental Internet protocols that allow this information to be created and shared. Both the Internet and coral reefs are also, interestingly, built on other platforms -- computer networks and volcanic islands, respectively -- demonstrating the "stacked" nature of many platforms and platform systems that exist in both the natural and man-made worlds.

Technology in Education

Assessing Three Emerging Technologies' Contribution to Learning

There are a myriad of new technologies emerging that have the potential to completely re-order and increase the level of learning effectiveness and performance of students. With so many new technologies emerging as diverse as mobile-based learning systems on smartphones to the ability to tailor online learning systems and complete networks, the opportunities for educators to innovate has never been more full of potential. What unifies the highest performing technologies in the area of learner involvement and performance are those that allow for students to define the pace, depth and repetition possible for a given subject. All of these technologies share a common characteristic of being able to align and support learner's specific goals and objectives, creating a highly effective educational scaffolding platform in the process (Najjar, 2008). The best technologies can be quickly tailored to each individual student's needs, while also allowing for students to repeat lessons and concepts to gain greater mastery of subjects studied. The potential of these technologies to augment and increase long-term learning for students at all grade and performance levels is significant and will continue to accelerate. The three technologies included in this analysis…… [Read More]

Bon Secours Project

I n 1824, in Paris, amidst the devastation following the French Revolution, a group of 12 women came together to form the congregation of the Sisters of Bon Secours, French for "Good Help" and the Sisters' purpose was to nurse the sick and dying in their homes (Bon Secours, N.d.). The group later arrived in the United States towards the end of the nineteenth century and has been operating there ever since. The organization has grown to include many locations in several states on the East Coast. The organization still operates with their Catholic heritage in mind and much of the cares provided in these organizations are charity cases. The organization consists of a staff of over 21,000 and well over 60 facilities in six states. The current business model is a regional model. The organization has significant access to resources and there should be no issues funding the project.

Social Perspective

Words: 648 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 96427937

Sociology

Symbolic interactionism is the theory suggesting human beings are best understood in "interactive relation to their environment," (University of Twente, 2014). The three core principles of symbolic interactionism including meaning, language, and thought. Meaning refers to the fact that people ascribe meaning to their relationships, institutions, and other social structures. This meaning is what guides human emotion and cognition. Language is the symbolic type of human communication. Like meaning, language also impacts human emotional and cognitive states. Thus, the third component of symbolic interactionism is thought. How a person perceives, judges, and interacts with the world is covered by symbolic interactionism. Symbolic interactionism also suggests that the self is a mirror for others, and vice-versa in what is known as the "looking glass self," ("The Symbolic Interactionist Perspective," n.d.). Symbolic interactionism is an ideal sociological lens through which to understand how social media has transformed the nature of human relationships and interactions.

Social media like Facebook and Twitter require the individual to establish an online presence, through which interactions with other people take place in the digital, online environment. Meaning is already being ascribed to social media. Social media is an example of a cybercommunity, which has "clearly reached…… [Read More]

Results for data analysis should be presented in a way that they can be easily readable and will make sense and also be attractive. Charts and tables present a visual way of looking at the data for ease of interpretations. It is also the best way of presenting the data to others as people do not like reading lots of numbers or they may not remember the figures as easily as they would for the graphs or tables.

Once the data has been analyzed and presented using charts or tables it will be distributed to the relevant people. The internet is the best tool for disseminating the data this is due to its prevalence ad ease of accessibility from many kinds of devices and snot just computers. With the use of social media it will be much easier to disseminate the information to more people than possible if one was to use email or placing the information on a website.

The use of the word MY also suggests that the speaker feels a sense of possession towards the assistant, thus the assistant's departure is seen as a loss of control, not merely a setback to the project as he says.

7. it's an animal urge, Puff. it's nothing to be ashamed of (65)

The word Puff suggests an animal, even if Puff is not an animal -- Puff is being assured that acting like an animal is natural, and not worthy of shame, despite Puff's feelings to the contrary and the ambiguous quality of Puff's name.

8. Remember, when in doubt: don't ever do what you really want to do (69)

This statement goes against the assurances of the naturalness of human behavior and impulses -- go against one's human or animal nature, it suggests, and repress and resist gut instincts. Instead, follow societal dictates and one's own superego.

9. There is nothing that makes you feel dirtier than finally deciding to sell your soul and finding no buyer (76)

After giving up one's morals, and repressing and resisting one's natural impulses, the speaker finds it frustrating that there are no 'takers' to indulge in this corruption.

Crisis Communication Is an Essential Component of

Crisis Communication

Communication is an essential component of effective crisis management. This is especially the case in a situation where the basic needs, health, and lives of thousands or even millions are at stake. In a situation where the water supply is at risk, for example, it is essential to establish a communication plan as soon as the risk becomes known. In this way any preventable cases of illness or death can be mitigated. When the risk of water supply contamination by a biological agent becomes known, for example, the main requirement is to communicate this to as large a proportion of the affected public as possible while minimizing the risk of panic or false information. To do this effectively, a sequence of risk-related communication needs to be implemented, including the choice of a risk communication team, communication to the public via the press and via information technology.

The first step of communicating a risk situation and all its associated factors is from the agency managing director to subordinates in charge of communication practices and risk mitigation. One component of such communication is the need to assemble a risk communication team (Clawson Freeo, 2012). According to Clawson Freeo (2012), this…… [Read More]

What were some of the challenges they faced? What are your thoughts in general on conducting qualitative research in the field of education?

Grounded theory is generation of a hypothesis (or assumption) that proceeds from observation and rich qualitative study. The authors wanted to show that qualitative study in general and grounded theory approach in particular could be used in conjunction with the subject of education.

The purpose of the study was (a) to investigate whether and, if so, how, the processes used to identify, assess, and place students in high-incidence special education programs contribute to the overrepresentation phenomenon; and (b) to identify referral and placement decision-making processes that successfully mitigate overidentification and overrepresentation while also providing beneficial educational outcomes for students.

Just as the internet forever changed how we communicate and how we get out information, social media also has had a profound impact on the way in which we engage socially with one another. For example, Facebook has created an online community of individuals who are able to share pictures, their thoughts, current news and their hopes, fears and joys. With social media were are more in touch and have the power to remain more up-to-date with one another than ever before. However, just because social media provides us with this extreme power and opportunity, doesn't mean that we have to engage in it. Furthermore, just because social media does offer this extreme opportunity to connect and remain in touch, doesn't mean that this particular power of capability is beneficial. The studies on social media and how it impacts our behavior have provided mixed results, which are accurate in and of themselves.

A one stop destination is understood as a store that offers a complete range of complementary products. As an example, supermarkets are one stop stores as they allow their customers to purchase everything from food and detergents to power tools and clothes. Within the cosmetics industry, a one stop destination store would be one in which the customer can find anything for personal care, including deodorants, lipsticks, waxing products and so on. The http://www.ulta.co.uk / website is one which can be considered a one stop destination store and can as such offer benchmarking opportunities in the analysis of the bobbiebrown.co.uk website.
