SOCIAL INFLUENCERS: The Powers-That-Be [Slides]

Social Influencers The powers that be

Just for fun, I wanted to list some of the more popular social media influencers and thought leaders and find their nearest superhero counterparts. While I found it exciting and would allow me to stray – even just for a bit – from the usually serious stuff, I was faced with a conundrum: which superhero group will I compare these people to?

DC? Marvel? Will it be an eclectic mix that will also include some characters from Japanese manga (who gets to be Goku?)? The questions are endless.

I was leaning towards Marvel since I have always been more of a Marvel fan than anything else, when I asked myself: What makes a superhero, well, super?

Many people would say it’s the power to do things that go far beyond the skills of normal humans. You know, like self-regeneration, being invisible, flying, and dodging bullets. The problem with this is, it discounts an entire category of heroes – those without ingrained powers. But then again, there are some people (outside of Bruce Wayne and Tony Stark) who, despite not having super powers, still have a huge impact not only in the lives of people but in society in general.

I mean, if you can convince people to think along your line of thinking or lead them to make a critical decision that affects the lives of thousands of others, then you must be the superhero-kind-of-powerful, right?

So I conceded to my inner self. These people may not fly or shape-shift or move things with their minds, but individually (and metaphorically), they move other people.

Collectively, they shake the world. They are the world of marketing’s powers-that-be.   


Disclaimer:

These influencers are categorized according to perceived strengths, weaknesses, and other intangibles only the writer understands. The “weakness” part is supposed to be a joke – it is not  meant to poke fun at any person on the list. More importantly, the opinions are of the writer’s himself and does not represent that of his company.


If you look at the numbers, social influencers don’t need any more attention. Between them, there are already millions of followers who view their original, enticing digital content, which in turn help shape consumers’ purchasing decisions. Imagine how much cash they move!

But, we mortals can never have too much of a good thing, so we bring them back.
Some are fixtures in the pantheon of the gods of digital marketing, while some are beginning to establish themselves as the heirs to the thrones. And because it’s more fun to look at them in a different light – that is, as people with preternatural powers – we decided to present them to you, superhero-style, complete with strengths and weaknesses. And mottos, for good measure. Have fun!

12 Experts That Will Teach You How to Get More Leads

The Problem with (and Solution to) Database Decay [Slides]

 

Transcript:

Lead quality needs to be built on the best foundation; but a lead generation campaign is only as good as its data.

Therefore, the best foundation for quality leads is accurate, updated dataVery simple logic.


For those who need numbers to see things more clearly, according to research, between 50 and 75 percent of the success of a B2B marketing campaign is down to the accuracy of the data available.


Businesses also rely increasingly on Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems – software that retains every lead, every sales opportunity and every contact record. Companies invest thousands of dollars (and man-hours) in obtaining leads that allow them to generate profit.

“But what happens a year later, when it’s time to sell something new and the data in your software is not reliable?”

 

The Acceleration of Decay

HubSpot published an interesting study on marketing databases. By using simulation, it found that business databases naturally degrade by 22.5 percent per annum. In another study, NetProspex reported that data decay occurs at a rate of around 2 percent per month. Its president, Michael Bird, calls this problem a “huge potential nightmare” for B2B marketers.

Donato Diorio, process automation specialist and Interim CEO of another tech company, Ringlead, claims data decay occurs at a rate of between 2.8-5.5% per month, or around 36% every year (I don’t know how they came up with 36%, but obviously, it isn’t as simple as simple addition). Either way, both numbers look grim.

 


In other words, more than one in five contact records in a marketing database is lost to data decay in a single year.  


That’s a contact that your business invested in, and a contact that could have yielded your next big sale.

Worse, this rate of decay is compounded over time. A healthy database with tens of thousands of contacts could be useless within half a decade.

 


“Look at it this way,” Bird said, “if you have 100,000 records in your database and you don’t do anything to update and maintain them, in four years they’re gone.”


Businesses grow, change, shrink, go bust, merge and split into new businesses. People grow, change and move on. It’s about time we guarded our software against data decay.

 

Causes of Database Decay

The most visible cause of data corruption is poor data entry. If there are no rules defining how data is entered into your information systems, inconsistencies will inevitably fester. Another is data migration—when information from one system or application is moved to another. Then, there’s what we call data mergers—when data is combined from different sources into a master file. Data consolidation—when companies attempt to eliminate redundant data.

Eliminate redundant and outdated data, check out our data cleansing services!

Add to these the fact that people move jobs, and they rarely take their email address with them. If you lose contact with one person, you effectively lose contact with their organization as a whole. Even if you have a personal email address for a valued contact, the contact probably won’t retain it for more than a couple of years

Solution

Obviously, nobody can prevent this from happening. However, there are certain ways to mitigate the risks of database decay? Basically, it involves a continuous process of collecting the best customer data from reliable sources, identifying the most potential value for clients and refining those contacts into the most relevant contact information and responsibilities within the company.

  • Keeping decay at bay requires not only a steady flow of inbound leads into your funnel (to replace the existing decay), but also a deep understanding of the contacts in your database and how they engage with your marketing (to stop further decay).

Related: The 5 to 5 Calling Rule for Inbound Leads (That Generated Over 40% Increase in Sales)

  • Once or twice a year (or quarterly, if you feel your prospects and clients don’t feel harassed) send an email request to customers and prospects that contain the information you have on them and their company. Request verification. Most individuals will correct their information if it’s inaccurate.
  • If you’re a small business with less than a thousand clients, you could have a team manually review your database once a year. It could visit every website, telephone every contact and cross match records with public databases. It would cost money and take time, but it’s possible.
  • Hire an Outbound Telemarketing firm. If your data have decayed badly, it may be cost-effective to hire an outbound telemarketing firm to verify, correct and add additional information. This is particularly cost-justified if you’re selling products or services that have a high dollar value.

Statistical Proofs Show That You Should Invest In Multi-Channel Marketing [Slides]

 

If your name is easy to pronounce like “Jane”, people will favor you more. They say, men with shorter first names are over represented in the c-suite, e.g. Apple CEO Timothy “Tim” Cook.

Does a name really affect a personality or determine one’s success? If it does, then marketing experts did a great job on multi channel marketing.

Marketers never cease to amaze us. They fused two marketing technologies together: traditional (publications, broadcast, outdoor media, phone, postal, direct) and digital marketing (web/content, social, email, mobile, seo, videos), and came up with a single but broad and innovative strategy called multi channel marketing that provides businesses a more consumer-centric, integrated approach to communication.

It’s like a highway that connects businesses to target customers and provides both parties with valuable options through variables like finding the right provider and creating a customized approach through different media while ensuring optimal performance at reduced cost. At some point, leveraging more on the digital channels to cope with customers buying behaviors and trends.

Multi channel marketing has been a usable marketing strategy for businesses for quite some time now but only got massive advertisement in the recent years. Despite the short familiarity lag among its audience, it was able to address the multi channel customers’ buying demands.
