Simplify360 & Be First Explore Tagging in the Social Media Realm!
Article after article now adorns the internet regarding the…power of the internet. The world of social media has grown to such a huge ‘size’ in this world, that talking about social media has become a…social media phenomenon. But even though there are simplistic ideas and ways that writers speak about all the time necessary to build your business by utilizing social media, there is also more in-depth information that businesses can discover to improve their social media marketing needs.
Companies such as Simplify360 and Be First, Inc. are experts in the social media realm. From the latest in techniques, skills, technologies, news, updates, graphics, writing, managing and marketing programs – to so much more – these are the various systems and facets that companies should be using when attempting to increase their social media presence.
The term, “tagging” (AKA, Social Bookmarking), refers to a technique that Internet users adopt to organize, store, manage and search for ‘bookmarks’ of resources online. To clarify, utilizing “tagging” allows a business to have a feature that enables them to organize their ‘bookmarks’ – otherwise known as channels or links. Links are what help your particular company and website when it comes to building an audience for your particular product by bookmarking other sites that are focused on what you need that will help you market your own product to the right consumer.
Descriptions are usually added to these bookmarks so that the user can understand what the content of the resource/source is without having to download it for themselves. These “tags” or keywords are a vital part of a social media management team’s ability to monitor, research, and watch 24/7 to allow your company to gain market share and increase traffic to your blogs, websites, etc. These “tags” are created to share in a specific network, in a group of consumers, or a combination of both the private and public world.
A business needs to think about this, because before anyone pushes a ‘publish’ button to upload everything as simple as an article to a video, graphic, website, blog, etc. – “tagging” must first be done in order to set everything up so that your business can jump closer and closer to the top of the Google search list. And when your company is at the top of that list, in 99% of the cases, yours is the first website the consumer will click on, because hardly anyone ever even goes to page 2 let alone page 115. In addition, you need to be able to set up your site so that a reader – a member of your audience – can search for the information they wish to find. From the archives of your blog, to the latest video on YouTube, to the latest link offering your news and information, or a published article about you appearing in a major newspaper, the audience members have to know how to get there!
“Tags,” are a way of organizing your blog or website so that keywords in the text can be highlighted. If your company name is used in an article, it is “tagged” so that when the reader clicks on that blue phrase or name, they head directly into your site to see more!
“Tagging” is actually the way Google, itself, finds blogs, the latest news and information for an industry, a new company that’s being ‘buzzed’ about, etc.; so these “tags” must be pertinent to the search item. Such as, if you place a general item into the Google search bar such as ‘restaurants’ – a list of millions will come up. To narrow down your search, you would call up something along the lines of your city and state, restaurants, giveaways, events, etc., to better narrow it down so that the Google ‘ghosts’ can wade through the information in seconds and call up the best ‘results’ for the consumer. So the closer your company’s “tags” are to what the consumer is looking for – the bigger the chance you have for them to see your company the second they put in their search requirements.
The social media team that you get to back you and your company up as you expand by using social media, already knows all about the “tags” and what must be done. In other words, the social media team already knows that “tags” must be kept short and simple, seeing as that the search requirements a consumer asks for are always short, simple and precise. The social media team also knows that “tags” should be lower case, with hardly any abbreviations used (unless the abbreviation is part of your company name); as well as “tagging” Proper Names so that your brand and your site comes up when the conversations across the globe have heated up and you are what the ‘buzz’ is all about!
“Tagging” is the ultimate search criteria that can have you enjoying profits, while still keeping in mind the key elements to social media that must be mastered in order to elevate your company into the stratosphere. From how best to handle customers (the good AND the complaints) to announcing new products, events, sharing the latest news and information, and more.
The data that comes from social media is beyond messy. And there are many tools out there for company’s to use in order to categorize and clean-up this mess, but there are very few ways for users to extract the value of all the data they have. Hence, the Be First social media team must be behind your company.
Simplify360 has seen these less than perfect ways of storing and cleaning up the mess as well, and launched an advanced version of social media data filter which allows a knowledgeable social media analyst to compact the data and view the trends that are happening – trends that will help your company to prosper.
User can be used by professionals as well as companies, although having that expert team behind you will save an amazing amount of time and energy that could be better spent in other areas of your business. Simplfy360’s program actually allows the user to define their own “tags” by providing simple combinations of words and phrases; users can even define a color code for the specific “tag,” then collect and review all the data.
As time rolls forward and social media moves from being the ‘popular’ way of doing business to being the ONLY way of doing business, more and more information regarding “tagging” and the uses and benefits of “tagging” in order to collect, manage and dissect data, will come into being.
