How Many Sites Do You Manage?

Believe it or not, you can have too much of a good thing. Whether it’s chocolate, coffee or alcohol–take a little, and you’re ok. Take too much, and you’ll likely have a problem.

The same is true with social media.

As a social media marketer I understanding how overwhelming some social media marketing can become if they are not properly planned and managed. A company might be posting some pieces of information on Twitter, other pieces on Facebook or Google+ and still more information on YouTube, without ever designing a system for managing this information and coordinating its efforts. They might also have abandoned accounts at Quora or MySpace or any of the dozens of other smaller social media sites in existence. All this information needs to be gathered together and the clients interests protected.

That’s my job.

A few top consumer brands, such as Coca-Cola , Nike and Starbucks — are using high-profile social media campaigns to great effect to find out what their customers want and to communicate with them.

But most CMOs are struggling to prove that investments in social media marketing would yield returns, according to the survey of more than 1,700 CMOs published on Tuesday and carried out in face-to-face interviews from February to June.

“The perfect solution is to serve each consumer individually. The problem? There are 7 billion of them,” said one CMO at a consumer-products firm in the survey.

Some 82 percent said they planned to increase their use of social media over the next 3-5 years.

IBM, along with other technology firms and big advertising agencies, is seeking to capitalise on the need of marketers to analyse data being created and shared on sites like Twitter and YouTube or by email.
