    Hi Jeff,

    Fantastic post! Thanks for including our infographic, very much appreciated. I absolutely agree with you that the B2B world should embrace every social channel available to them. Trial and error is a terribly underrated strategy in the world of social marketing. We actually have a much better ROI on our social campaigns that we run through FB and Twitter as opposed to Linkedin.

    Here is the original piece of content that inspired this Infographic, I thought it might be of interest to your readers as well. It’s a complete social plan for businesses who are looking to start or improve upon their social strategy with specific tactics and metrics.

    The new visual networks are certainly making the social media more fun and viral. The continuing evolution of the social media universe id something I continue to watch with avid interest.

    Finding the right balance of these is definitely important. We’ve been doing Twitter and Facebook for a long time now, but integrating infographics through visual.ly has given us a refreshing batch of new content for both blog posts, and Facebook/Twitter. If you have the design resources, and can make something especially relevant to your industry, I’d recommend using infographics as a creative advertising outlet.

    Great post! I am building my blog currently so this was very helpful. I need to clean up my facebook and twitter pages and add some life to them. I have not started yet but I am concerned about the time I will spend promoting content on different social networks because I am working a 9-5 right now. I plan on using my Iphone as much as possible when I have some free time.

    Anyone who ignores Google+ as a major player (especially because of the connected Google Authorship program) doesn’t really understand search marketing and is missing the biggest reach opportunity in the history of the web.

    Great post Jeff, as always!

    Touching on a point in your article, one of the things I try to consistently instill in the minds of newbie social media folks I run across is the importance of content. Content is more than just King, it’s the backbone of social media! It’s a shame how many people don’t understand that a solid content strategy optimized for social media is necessary to build out a successful SM strategy. Business can’t just jump into social, they have to be ready and willing, and that means work.

      Thanks Michelle for the insights on content and your 1.5 million followers on Google+ I am sure are there because of your content and engagement.
      Content is indeed the foundation of any social media strategy whether that content, entertains, inspires, educates or informs. Creating contagious content is indeed hard work and for a long term successful SM strategy it needs to created relentlessly and with persistence.

    Thanks Jeff – you’ve delivered content marketing Gold once again! Really appreciate all of the insights you’re sharing. What are your thoughts on flickr … one of the original image sharing sites, it had what you could call some fledgling social functionality, and it was huge in its heyday. Does it have a useful role to play in a content marketing strategy these days?

    • http://jeffbullas.com Jeff Bullas

      Hi Tim and thanks for the question. Flickr is still worth considering but its slow evolution means it has been left behind by more modern and social visual platforms such as Instagram and Pinterest.
      I would be using those before Flickr.

        Nice one Jeff – thanks.
