New research seems to show all roads leading to mobile. Whether we’re talking about Facebook, YouTube or the latest new toy, Snapchat—research shows that well-executed mobile strategies will offer the biggest payoff for marketers.

Here’s a summary of the latest research…

According to Shareaholic’s Social Media Traffic Report (October 2013), publishers saw average referral traffic from Facebook mobile grow 253% between September 2012 and September 2013!

9 Reasons to Attend Social Media Success Summit 2013

social media reviewsCould your social media marketing efforts use a boost?

Are you looking to improve your professional development when it comes to social media?

Do you feel overwhelmed by endless social media platform changes?

If so, Social Media Examiner has just the event for you.

The Social World is Changing

One of the biggest challenges marketers face these days is keeping up with the dizzying rate of change in social media marketing.

This year alone, Facebook has introduced Graph Search, Hashtags, Power Editor and recently, new Facebook Insights.

YouTube is another example. In March 2013, they significantly changed the layout for brand channels, forcing marketers to go back to the drawing board and rethink their strategies.

It can be unsettling trying to keep up with all of these changes, not to mention how much time it takes to learn and make the necessary adjustments.

Before you jump in headfirst or turn over the social media reins , check out the following eight tips to make sure your employees or contractors correctly represent your company.

#1: Create a Social Style Guide

5 Ways to Get Your Entire Company On Board With Social Media

social media how toIs everyone supporting social media at your company?

Are you struggling to get the support you need?

And although there are many reasons why social media campaigns fail, far and away one of the biggest reasons for failure is the lack of top-to-bottom “buy-in” from all employees in a company.

  • In some cases, the CEO thinks the idea is frivolous.
  • In others, management has their doubts.
  • And in a large majority of companies, employees have no understanding of what social media is, what it does and how they can play a role in its success.

This, my friends, must change.
