What happens when someone complains or gives negate feedback online? Are you prepared for the inevitable?
Social media is a powerful medium and it can work for you and it can work against you. As the saying goes “a reputation takes a lifetime to build and a moment to lose”.
Marketers harness the power of sharing using social media marketing to promote their business or product. However most seem not to have a plan of action for when things go wrong. Here we look at turning bad comments and complainants on social media into good stories and advocates...
Is Google+ important for your SEO and rankings
You may have noticed lately a lot of articles, press releases and blog posts about Google+. I have seen several blog posts saying how easy Google+ is to use and how important it is. But these just look like they were written by Google staff or affiliates so perhaps we can dismiss these.
However that is not the whole story. Just as Pinterest is more popular in the USA so Google+ has take off there first. Some say that it is not relevant for the UK and Europe. Some say that they only have as many users (500 Million) because of Gmail and YouTube conscripting their existing users.
All that said Pinterest does drive retail sales in the UK and CR4L have seen some successful campaigns that gave great ROI. So what about Google+...
What is Twitter For in Business? What should your company be doing, where and how? It sounds simple but many people don’t know...
I recently posted an article regarding the finer points of using Twitter. In the past I have written on how to get leads from Facebook and how to generate B2B sales from LinkedIn. But until now I have only posted on how to use Twitter and Facebook and not why...

It's Official... Social Media Sells - facts and figures from 2013 and help getting results marketing your business
81% of people are influenced by social media when making a purchase
In a previous article (http://www.cr4l.com/1/post/2013/10/word-of-mouth-marketing-demonstrably-effective.html ) I quoted a study by WOMMA (Word of Mouth Marketing Association) which showed that 72% of people have been influenced by customer reviews and a whopping 81% are influenced by their friends and social media.
According to a Nielson study carried out in September 2013 84% of people most trust “recommendations from people I know” when purchasing.
If you are not convinced that your business should have a social media presence then what else can I say? Well a lot actually...
People like to buy from people. People love it when their friends recommend a product or service to them and they will be much more inclined to buy it. As sellers businesses can say all they like about their product but who is going to believe them? 8 out of ten cats preferred it... studies show... laboratory tested... etc...
We have heard it all and then some. But when a friend tells you they have just bought an iWidget and it does this and that and the other and was only £9,99 you may well take notice. You may even buy one. That is the power of personal recommendation.
81% Of People Are Influenced By Social Media When Making A Purchase
Products and companies that aim for the mass market are set to fail. Now it's not enough to be good, or even the best. Pretty soon someone will come along and do better, be cheaper, last longer ...
If you choose to be different you actually have a chance, and you can beat the bigger companies. The trouble with big companies is that they are going for the mass market. This market is full and noisy. In the mass market to get noticed you have to spend big. Expensive newspaper adverts, TV commercials and mass media campaigns may get you noticed but for what...
Even if you get noticed so what? Who cares? TV adverts interrupt us with messages that we have become desensitised to. We ignore most billboards and magazine adverts. Consumers don’t care about you and your business; why should they?
No matter what size your business and who your target audience is the most successful marketing strategy is to stand out and be different. That can mean all sorts of things but in an essence don’t be new and improved, be remarkable....

Most business owners recognize that social networking is key to a successful online marketing strategy; some consider a well-designed Facebook page the workhorse of their social media campaign. According to CNBC, however, Facebook is destined to go the way of the dinosaurs, and in fact, its relevance is rapidly fading compared to Twitter. In an age where smart phone sales are experiencing unprecedented growth and more people are using their mobile phones for news, email, search and information, Twitter is the fastest-growing way to engage with your customers.
