Why Every Business Needs a Social Media Policy Before You Get Fined by the FTC!

podcast-twitter-barnes.jpg

Well before the current frenzy over “tweets gone wild,” Joe Barnes walked into businesses, for profits and non-profits, and would ask: “What’s your social media policy?” The usual response was: We don’t have one, or “Go talk to marketing about that.” In his travels he realized that nearly every business and organization he walked into, no matter what size, did not have a written social media policy, nor did they clearly understand or even know what the Federal Trade Commission requires in the way of disclosure. That’s why he wrote his book: “Social Media Ethics Made Easy: How to Comply with FTC Disclosure Requirements.” The book is available from Business Expert Press or on Amazon. Our host today is Matthew Cummings.

About our guest: Joe Barnes

In 2014, Joe was one of two instructors voted by students to receive the prestigious Alexia Vanides Online Teaching Award. His background includes over 20 years of senior level journalism leadership experience as well as having
consulted over 75 businesses and nonprofits nationwide in marketing and strategic communications. He has been quoted in two books and is the author of a new book: “Social media Ethics Made Easy: How to Comply with FTC Disclosure Requirements.” Under his leadership in journalism KOMO-TV in Seattle received the coveted Edward R.

Topics and Trends in Direct and Digital Marketing

Today we will discuss the continued move toward the integration of direct and digital marketing and the balance of online and offline media focused on the consumer.  We'll talk about trends in database marketing, and how a creative person can uniquely contribute to the use of insights from the database I also want to touch on the current climate regarding consumer privacy concerns. Host is Cyndi Greenglass.

Talking points include:

  1. Many in our industry feel that Direct Marketing is no longer an effective description for the practice of addressable and measurable communications. In fact, I believe that you are an advocate of using “Direct and Digital Marketing”.  Tell me how this had developed and why you feel that this is a better way to describe the industry today.
  2. So, with digital marketing coming on so strong, should we start planning the funerals and eulogies for traditional media like print, catalogs and TV are on their way out?
  3. Do you believe in the reality of “Omni channel” or is it still a future aspiration for us marketers?
  4. How do your creative skills help you to use information from databases?
  5. Much of database marketing sounds pretty complex and possibly quite expensive.  Can small and medium-sized companies afford to develop and use helpful databases, or is that just for the bigger firms?
  6. There is much concern in today’s world about personal privacy.  In Europe, the new GDPR mandates went into effect a few weeks ago.  Do you see more privacy legislation and regulation coming up in the US as well?
  7. Content Marketing is another hot topic in the direct and digital world these days. With so many firms developing content marketing programs, how can a marketer make sure that their information stands out?

Has customer empowerment killed CRM?

June 20, 2018
00:0000:00

Why it Matters:

"We now live in a world where companies and brands no longer have control of marketing, advertising, or the conversation with their customers."

In a very short period of time, the balance of power has shifted dramatically away from push communication strategy, and morphed into a collaborative engagement strategy between consumers, brands, and channel partners. So, in this new world, is there still a place for CRM (Customer Relationship Management) or the Experience Economy? Are these concepts outdated and need to be thrown out? If so, what has replaced them for marketers who practice and depend on loyalty and relationship management?n our fast paced ½ hour together we will hear from Michael Lynch. With a career as diverse as loyalty itself, Lynch comes from years in both the gaming and hospitality industries. Read the rest of this entry »
