Given below is a compilation of some great quotes on social media marketing and content marketing.

 

Ardath Albee

Social media can provide a conversational extension to a B2B company’s nurturing programs. Social media gives us the opportunity to humanize our communications and make our companies more approachable.

Adam Ostrow

As opposed to trying to attract millions of eyeballs and monetize them with ads, branded social networks are less about profitability and more about creating loyal and engaged customers that will ultimately create revenue in more conventional ways.

@adamostrow

Amber Naslund

Social media is, ultimately, an endeavor that a business must take responsibility for on its own. It can't successfully be outsourced long term if the company is to truly and authentically steward its own brand.

Ann Handley

One of the tenets of social psychology research is the prevalence of reciprocity: that people try to repay, in kind, what another person has provided.

Beth Harte

Social media is networking online vs. offline. It takes time whether it's online or offline…Do NOTHING without a plan. Otherwise you are spinning wheels, wasting time & resources. Social Media Return on Investment is doable.

Ben Parr

If a potential customer comes to your company’s website and sees an active blog with insightful posts on how your company’s product helps customers, reads detailed posts demonstrating your company’s knowledge, and comes across a few case studies, they’re going to be far more inclined to come to you for their needs.

Marketing with Meaning is less about "context" -or finding the best time to get in front of a consumer's eyeballs -and more about "content" -or creating something that people find valuable in itself.

Brian J Carroll

Social media can be a bit like a bunch of people with megaphones blurting out their messages one-way. People will cover their ears (unsubscribe) and tune that out. Use social media to ‘listen’ to and learn more about your audience.

Brian Solis

Social media ―is only going to become more pervasive and as such, become a critical factor in the success or failure of any organization.

Social marketing eliminates the middlemen, providing brands the unique opportunity to have a direct relationship with their customers.

@bwiener

Casey Hibbard

Now, so much of what we do happens online and we are less likely to see the customers face to face. It's a lot more global. It's more competitive. And people are more skeptical of marketing messages.

Social Media to be successful for any of those things has to be integrated into every level of the customer life cycle.

My interpretation is that Twitter (and a few other services) have become as important as dialtone to business and communication in general.

Chris Garrett

The term ―Social Media describes tools, websites and software that allows people to connect and share…. Social Media Marketing is all about gaining that Social Media exposure in a tactical way, all why carefully avoiding getting blocked or banned

Darren Rowse

Most bloggers who rise above the clutter are quite often prolific –they work hard, not just writing content but networking, engaging in social media and more.

Dave Rosenberg

Social media is becoming part of every company's marketing strategy. There is a great deal of measurable value from these tools provided you have established a baseline of what you hope to achieve.

Dave Saunders

You can't tiptoe into social media. You have to jump into the pool. People have a natural fear of it. But the scary part is not being there. Your customer is already there.

Dave Fleet

Social media can, and frequently can be, the canary in the goldmine. If you see a steady trickle of people complaining about something over a period of time, you should pay attention.

In its purest form, Social Business Design is a shift in thinking—less about media and more about tapping the benefits of being a social business in a purposeful way.

Social media is a cocktail party. Viewing the Web as a sprawling city with social media as the cocktail parties helps to make sense of the best ways for marketers to use the tools of social media.

Debra Aho Williamson

Social networks are where consumers feel comfortable expressing their feelings—good or bad—about companies, products and services. Marketers, retailers and social networks have an opportunity to tap into this stream of information-sharing.

Content marketing wins over readers more than advertising. This means business bloggers have the clear advantage since blogs are the best way to communicate stories.

Dharmesh Shah

Inbound marketing is relevant today because as consumers, we have gotten better and better at blocking classical ―outbound marketing .In order to reach us as buyers, marketers need to find a way to become part of the natural interactions we have when we are searching for information and products.

David (Doc) Searls

Informing is not the same as delivering information. Informis derived from the verb to form. When you inform me, you form me. You enlarge that which makes me most human: what I know. I am, to some degree, authored by you.

Social media is a whirling tornado of content and comment…. If the original content is the seed, social media is the wind that takes it out in search of fertile soil (or the animal that eats it up and… tweets it out).

Ian Lurie

Want to build a great brand in social media (or anywhere else, for that matter)? Don't be a jerk. Social media has accelerated the rate at which public perception of your actions (your brand) can spread. It hasn't changed branding. Listen, learn, and do right by folks when they need your help.

Jason Baer

The good news is that social media is something special. It's not just a marketing tactic (although social media marketing can be effective). It's more of a movement. A philosophy that brings brands and customers closer together through humanization of the brand and mutual respect

With social media..you’re going direct to the consumer. Social media is an extension of good public relations, but should be a company-wide approach PR helps manage and facilitate.

John Battelle

Social media marketing is about brands acting, well, social. Which means they need to show up to the party with a nice bottle of wine, if that's what the party calls for. They need to come ready to have a dialog, and add value to the event.

Social media trends are coming headlong into a positive collision with consumer values. This represents an opportunity for marketers with integrity to connect with consumers based on trust using empathy and giving their customers something real they can believe in.

Social Media is a tool, it’s not a religion. My approach to new media is this –explore, participate, converse authentically, but use as many tools as you can to make it as easy as possible to do so.

With social media so prevalent we are all EXTREMELY visible. Your prospective clients, your peers and your competition can drill as deep as they wish searching, reading and gathering information online about you and posted by you without you ever knowing who’s searching. Depending on what they find, your prospects may choose to do business with you or not.

Paul Gillin

The term “social media” is almost a misnomer in this context. Business people usually arent looking to socialize when making buying or career but rather want actionable advice as quickly as possible.Thats why the tools that work best are those that let people easily discover what theyre looking for and extract value quickly.

Whether its a press release, website, media tour, podcast or live event, what we, as marketing communications practitioners, are doing is marketing content. I believe looking at it this way reframes what it is we do for clients. Its more of a mindset than a completely different skillset.

Rohit Bhargava

By far the most common myth, giving up control is a defeatist way of looking at social media. It means that anyone can say anything about your brand and there is nothing you can do and no input you can have. The truth is actually that control in the best of cases is shared. You have a point of view and your customers do as well.
