A Guide to Social Media and Privacy

Privacy has become a priority for consumers across digital channels. Many want to protect their data and are becoming more careful about what they share on social media and who they share it with.

Digital Marketing Institute has published ‘A Guide to Social Media and Privacy’ to help marketers understand social media privacy and improve marketing.

Clodagh O’Brien says, “A new Cisco report ‘Building Consumer Confidence Through Transparency and Control’ found that 86 percent of consumers “care about data privacy” and want more control while 79 percent are willing to invest time or money to better protect their privacy.

To be compliant, you need to understand the most common privacy issues that impact social media channels. Ultimately it’s about protecting and valuing the data of your customers and avoiding a social media crisis that would bring disrepute to your company.

Data mining

Data mining is a way for companies to gather information using automated computer systems that sort through information to identify trends and patterns. It’s often used to examine people’s behavior based on past purchases, location, content preferences, or events such as birthdays.”

AWeber Shares 10 Thank You Page Examples

A thank you page is the page that appears after someone has completed an action.

Thank you pages help you create new business opportunities. With quick loading and well-designed thank you page, you can win many more customers.

AWeber contributor Pam Neely has shared 10 great thank you page examples and ways to create your own.

She says, “You can do a ton of interesting things with thank you pages – as you’re about to find out!

10 ideas for thank you pages that rock with examples

Let’s work from the basics to the fancy stuff, with thank you page examples sprinkled in along the way.

1. Ask people to confirm their email address

Using “confirmed opt-in,” also known as “double opt-in” is an email marketing best practice. It does require subscribers to take an extra step to double-confirm that they want to get emails from you, but email lists that use confirmed opt-in get much higher opens, clicks, and sales. (There’s a reason why it’s a best practice!)

Here’s what the sequence of onboarding emails looks like for confirmed opt-in versus regular opt-in.”

He says, “In this post, I’ll share the 20 blogging tips I wish I had known when I started.

1. Focus on a profitable niche that you’re passionate about

Don’t mess around on the blogosphere on things you don’t care about. You won’t stick with it.

Plus, your content will likely also be the same as everyone else’s, which makes competing hard. So choose something you love.

If the top-ranking articles consistently grind your gears because they’re wrong or give bad advice, this is a sign of a good niche. Make it your task to set the record straight.”

YouTube: The Best-Kept Secret in Social Media

Unlike other social networks, YouTube rarely makes headlines. It’s often overlooked by marketers, entrepreneurs, and creators.

But while the video-sharing site keeps a relatively low profile, it has a lot to offer. Did you know…

  • YouTube is the second-largest search engine in the world. And it’s owned by the largest search engine in the world—Google.
  • It offers a unique combination of file hosting, fine-grained analytics, and monetization tools… for free.
  • In 2021, advertisers spent more on YouTube than any other social network. There’s so much demand that ads are now included in all videos—even those from channels that are too small for creators to monetize”.

AppSumo Giveaway Ending #ad

You may have heard of : AppSumo. They help new and small software companies get a following by offering their products at discount prices.

We have bought several applications from them that we use to run our business.

We just learned about a sale and a giveaway contest they have been running, apparently to compete in a minor way with the Amazon Prime Day, which had a tendency to suck up all the mindshare from other online marketers. Wlamart, Target and Best Biy did the same thing to compete with Prime Day.

The AppSumo event ends at noon EDT today. They have many apps at half price till noon. Plus they are running a promotional giveaway event until noon, as well.
