Convert them, and those influencers will spread the word on your new product quickly among your target audience.Next, Odden writes that “content is the engine of marketing,” so start a blog that not only covers the story of your product “and how it solves important problems in the marketplace,” but also serves “as a communication channel with other blogs in the industry, the media, customers, and a community.” After that, be sure that you’re using social media analytics to monitor the effectiveness of your efforts and cut through “the sheer volume of information created and promoted on the social web.”Photo by: Lali MasrieraAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to PrintPrintShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more
