The ROI of Social Selling

I’ve mentioned this for this first time at i-Strategy London 2010 the ROI on social media is very important, or so one would think. Are the effort and costs worth it?  So far no one has done anything about measuring the ROI.  Even though companies are still looking, and most of them still struggle, to measure the ROI of those efforts. Can the ROI be proven?  Here’s a great Infographic  the ROI of Social Selling.

  1. Key takeaways: 89% of businesses report increased exposure and 75% report increased traffic as top benefits of social media
  2. More than half of organizations who’ve been using social media for at least 4 years report it has helped them improve sales (64%)
  3. The majority of businesses in the US (50%+) doesn’t feel the need to measure Social Selling ROI

Social Media Cheat Sheet [Infographic]

A handy Infographic on what Social Media platforms to use, since there are so many. Which is best for your company?  There’s one missing from this list and that is Whatsapp.

The first “experiments” for using this to reach a new public have begun, for instance the Dutch newspaper NRC. This way they want to update their readers with news by sending them a text message through Whatsapp. Will this work? Personally I don’t think so, but we’ll just have to wait and see.

But for al the others this infographic, “Social Media Cheat Sheet (For Users) breaks down the most popular social networks into digestible snippets, describing how they can be utilized, as well as highlighting their pros and cons. Learn how to best leverage each platform & start socializing!”

Jelly, the new way to search

The Jelly App, Have you heard of it? No, well now you will have. Jelly is a new app  and was launched beginning of January of this year. So now what is it? Jelly is a new way to search on the internet by using your network and your extended network and it is easy to use.

You take a picture of what something you don’t know what it is, post it on Jelly and your  friends and their friends (Jelly works with your existing social networks) can (hopefully) give you an anwer.  You can crop, reframe, zoom, and draw on your images to get more specific. Check the video below to get an introduction to Jelly.

I have been using it since the launch and, to honest, it is actually fun to use. Sometime you get the stangest things and you actually pick up on things too.  People tend not to just take pics of things they want to know wht it is, but they also ask questions like “What’s the best programmable robot for little kids. Something easy and educational.” Questions like these do get a lot response and therein lies the fun and social aspect of the App. People like helping people, the Pay it Forward idea so to speak. I say Jelly it forward.

So Google, eat your heart out, it’s Jelly time.

 

The Jelly App is available for iPhone and Android.
