How to Generate Leads from Social Media — SocialMouths
Nice to see dawning recognition that social business needs some structure and planning to produce business value. This post presents 5-part approach to generating leads: strategy, due diligence, content connected to prime stakeholders, connect to marketing, involve sales team. Great example of beginning to treat social business seriously, but it's missing several key elements. It's still too focused on "content," which shows diminishing value. *Interaction* and helping people do things that are important to them is where the action is. Personalized interaction is harder to scale than "content"—but that's precisely WHY people value it more. In addition, the post doesn't mention the importance of trust and focusing on relationship. Finally, it is not trivial to engage salespeople. That's why is dedicated to it.

Mastering The Uncomfortable Art Of Personal Branding | Fast Company
Valuable insight into how to engage people with a mix of personal and professional details. Cites @garyvee. Could be more valuable if it had mentioned several use cases and the importance of knowing your audience. Be clear about whom you're trying to engage. Imagine yourself across the table with two of three of your stakeholders at lunch, what would you talk about? Those are the kind of details to share. Not random things. Another of the post's valuable points: weave the things together in terms of a story. That will help people relate to what you share and remember you better. We covered this in more detail here: - see the section under "use scenarios" Thx @melanie_adcock
