The rise of social media is intrinsically connected to email, which was itself the first social network. Email marketers must leverage this complementary channel to expand their reach beyond the email list, realizing the power of viral marketing in the social web.
If you’re a small-to-midsized business (SMB), you know that you’re operating in a fast-paced, ever-changing business environment. Customers want their demands met instantly, and increasing competition multiplies the pressure you’re under. If you can’t deliver, you can be sure somebody else will.
Fortunately, the technology landscape is changing the way you do business. Mobility, social media, and Big Data are leveling the playing field and making it possible for companies like yours to access more sophisticated technology, reach bigger audiences, target their messages, and innovate in their offerings. Yet nothing has changed the landscape so much as the cloud.
Worldwide social network ad spending is expected to reach nearly $9 billion in 2013, a 33% increase over 2012. While Facebook will maintain a significant share of the 2013 total ($5.48 billion), that leaves $3.5 billion to be spent on fast-rising Twitter, Chinese social networks, social games, LinkedIn and other sites.
As social media use has grown, an urgent need has emerged to correlate the information generated through social data with existing consumer information, and integrate it with sophisticated data management systems. This white paper describes how organizations can blend social insights with more-traditional data in an integrated customer data hub to optimize social strategies and create outreach efforts, new products, and campaigns grounded in real-time, repeatable, automated, and scalable analysis.
In this exclusive Socialbakers report, we look at how media companies can use competitive analytics and better content optimization strategies to drive interactions and site visits - crucial metrics for anyone involved in audience growth and development in the industry.
The benefits of running a truly social business are many - driving shorter sales cycles, improving customer care, innovating your talent recruitment strategies, and improving how you coordinate your organization from top to bottom in pursuing unified goals.
Today, 75% of Twitter traffic and 65% of Salesforce.com traffic comes through APIs. But APIs are not just for the social Web. According to ProgrammableWeb.com, the number of open APIs being offered publicly over the Internet now exceeds 2000—up from just 32 in 2005. Opening APIs up to outside developers enables many technology start-ups to become platforms, by fostering developer communities tied to their core data or application resources. This translates into new reach (think Twitter’s rapid growth), revenue (think Salesforce.com’s AppExchange) or end user retention (think Facebook).

In this social listening whitepaper, you'll learn that listening technology provides brands with the power to reach consumers via the digital platforms where they research, make, and discuss their purchasing decisions.
Within any organization, business content – applications, forms, reports, office documents, audio, video, and social media – is poorly managed and often out-of-reach of critical business processes. And, when business content is invisible, unclassified or unmanaged, it creates chaos. Content chaos causes a breakdown in the flow of information between an organization and its customers, its partners and even within itself – failures that often impact customer engagement, business agility, and the capacity to collaborate securely and effectively. It's time you learn how to put your business content to work.
Consumers are hungry for social content that speaks to their unique needs, but they seldom turn to brands to get it. In order to satisfy this need, you have to reach consumers where they already are with content that adds value beyond what any of your products can offer. This eBook will guide you through the process of creating optimized content for social campaigns, including recipes, styled photo collections, instructional videos, product reviews, and more.
Cyberbreaches aren’t just in the news—they are the news. Yet headlines rarely mention the No. 1 source of those breaches: weak or stolen passwords. Whether they involve malware, hacking, phishing, or social engineering, the vast majority of breaches begin with account compromise and credential theft, followed by dormant lateral network movement and data exfiltration. In fact, weak or stolen passwords account for a staggering 81% of breaches, according to the Verizon 2017 Data Breach Investigations Report.
Not surprisingly, a new Okta-sponsored IDG survey finds that identity access management (IAM) is a top priority for nearly three-quarters (74%) of IT and security leaders. Yet the same survey uncovers widespread concern that their current IAM implementations are falling short. Just one worrisome example: Fewer than one-third (30%) of respondents report a good or better ability to detect a compromise of credentials.
The following report explores the gap between respondents’ aspiratio

75% of brands now pay to promote their Facebook posts,1 and
that number will only continue to rise over the next few years.
Why pay for ads when Facebook is technically a “free” social
network? Well, you may have noticed that your organic posts
on Facebook are reaching fewer and fewer people every
day (and probably not getting the engagement they deserve,
either). That’s because organic reach for brand pages has hit an
all time low at around 2%, and organic reach per post continues
to decline rapidly every single day.1 Last year, SocialFlow saw a
42% drop in organic reach per post in just five months.
