Les 8 ?tapes d?une Strat?gie Social Media Efficace

Ça a été la première phrase de Jay Baer lors de sa présentation au #smss10 – où il a donné ces étapes sur lesquelles je base mon article – et pourtant elle avait déjà fait de moi un de ses plus grand fan. C’est en effet un des points qui me tient le plus à coeur: les réseaux sociaux « ne sont qu’un » canal de communication, leurs plateformes et outils ne sont que des supports. Pour savoir comment les appréhender, il ne s’agit pas d’être un geek ou d’avoir de bons flux RSS (bien que tout cela n’est pas incompatible…), mais de connaitre, et de savoir y appliquer, les principes de communication et de marketing. Et s’il existe des fils conducteurs à une recommandation marketing, il en est de même pour les stratégies sociales. 1. 2.

More than three-quarters of US small-business executives surveyed did not find social networks helpful for generating leads or expanding their business.
