SME & Social Media Marketing: 5 questions to our expert – Magazine Interview

Small and medium-sized companies can save a lot of advertising budget through social media marketing, because a once initiated community is constant. Community, advertising, customer service and personnel search, with their own social media account companies can only win. In an interview with [ DEMNÄCHST ] today we philosophized about SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises) and their opportunities and risks in social media marketing. Here is an excerpt of 5 exciting questions for owner and social media expert Stephan M. Czaja.

Social media marketing for small and medium-sized enterprises

Why is presence on social media channels helpful for SMEs, what can they achieve?

The presence of small and medium-sized enterprises on social channels is so important because they save a lot of money! In the past, every small company had to print flyers and waste a lot of time trying to convince people to buy new products.

Today, as a small company, even in the countryside or without large financial resources, you can reach the whole world. Social networks offer 1:1 communication, as if you had a local business in every city in the world. Nuremberg, Munich, Berlin, Hamburg, no distance is far and every communication is only a mouse click away.

You can contact your fans, ask questions or give us suggestions. Otherwise complex and Theurer Internet sites can be considerably slimmer, since a lot of brand communication can be covered via the social networks.

Social media is not only an excellent tool for marketing, but also for PR: We often reach our customers faster than any press article could do. New products, announcements and job postings for personnel recruitment – free of charge. Social media channels bundle different marketing tools, because they are much more extensive than many might think.

As an online shop we can e.g. connect our Facebook page with Instagram. We can set up an online shop on Facebook, link the products to Instagram and our followers can shop on Instagram. As an online shop you can even work across networks.

Which platform is the best?

What small and medium-sized enterprises should pay attention to is the choice of social network. Because the support costs time and should be regular, preferably daily. New postings, comments, small and large graphics, who wants to make his social media management profitable, has to invest work every day and give the employees the necessary resources for it.

In the past you could say you were on Facebook, that’s enough. Today the right social network is no longer so easy to define. In short, however, Facebook is and remains the classic and with the largest number of users, even top dog. Conversely, on Facebook you also have to invest advertising budget, organic reach is only difficult to achieve.

Instagram is easier to achieve organic reach, but lacks some of the features you have on Facebook, the social network. This includes direct links, e.g. to our online shop via https://www.onlineshop.com/xy. Without links, we can sell less. Instagram is a must for companies in the fashion and lifestyle industries in particular.

Companies with the necessary capacities and in particular sufficient interest can support a YouTube channel. However, creating content for YouTube is much more time consuming and requires good concepts that work on YouTube. Most medium-sized and large companies cover this area through their social media agency.

The investment is worthwhile! Because the reach that small and medium-sized companies are building up here is permanently available. Our business grows with each new follower by one potential visitor per day.

When assessing the quality of the reach on the individual networks, it can be said that the more time it takes to create the content, the better the number of fans. On Facebook, content is relatively easy to create, you can even share links or other websites without having to create content yourself. However, the organic range is very small. If your Facebook account has 10,000 fans, a single organic posting may reach only 100 or 200 people. Practically nothing.

On Instagram, you usually have to take much more time for interesting content, photos and videos. The content must also be interesting and always new to generate followers for your Instagram account. With a channel of 10,000 fans you can reach about 1,000 people. YouTube is currently the top class, with about 10,000 fans you can actually reach 7,000 or 8,000 people here. But the creation of the contents is very complex, because it needs not only a video production, but also the moderation, as well as a good storyboard.

How to estimate the three big social networks in 2018

YouTube and Pinterest are considered an insider tip, especially as a source for backlinks in the field of search engine optimization. YouTube is therefore also the most expensive source for influencers and bloggers on social networks in terms of overall reach. Those who can place their links in the descriptions of well-running videos, e.g. by influencer marketing or by creating their own content.

On Pinterest you create different galleries with photos. The photos then have individual titles and descriptions. But also the galleries have individual titles and descriptions. Whoever collects a large number of galleries here and meets an interesting and not too overcrowded industry can collect good links for their own project.

Twitter is only of interest to large corporations and public figures. For small and medium-sized businesses, Twitter is generally irrelevant. In relation to success and effort you should not waste time with Twitter. Unless it is a large corporation or a public figure, since tweets are often included in the media.

In short, Facebook with the right advertising budget, Instagram with a creative person and enough time and YouTube if you are a leader and have a lot of commitment of your own! YouTube costs a lot of time and, unlike Facebook and Instagram, is not so easy to check, simply because of the time-consuming content production and the resulting rare postings. But YouTube offers a strong and above all lasting tool, since good videos are placed still after years highly by the algorithm of the video search machine. So anyone who creates an evergreen in a theme, e.g. also for videos such as “How to repair your toilet seat” or “Winter tyres – making cars winterproof”, can market their product absolutely free of charge for many years. Here lies the great magic of YouTube.

How much time / manpower does a small company need if it wants to become active in social media?

When working in social media networks, a daily time window should be taken into account. A big secret trick of social media agencies is the use of online tools to plan content in advance. So a social media manager can plan the content in advance every 14 days and can concentrate on other things in everyday life, e.g. designs, shootings, interaction with the fans, depending on how big one’s own social media marketing is built up. For small companies, time can of course also be used for other work processes. Therefore, the A&O for your Social Media Manager, use an online tool to plan your postings in advance.

If you are in social media marketing, you have to leave yourself or your employee 2 hours a day. Depending on the company, one can create simple content, from everyday life or may have to have higher quality things made, e.g. through photo shootings with models and products.

Depending on this, of course, there are also a few more working hours or even days. Who can afford it, should take a full time Social Media Manager, because in the end it concerns more than only the support. There are so many other functions that a social media manager can perform in the company, only advertisements are so effective that the investment is worth the time for the first optimization.

With a full-time social media manager relationship, a medium-sized company has already done a great job. On top would come then of course still medium-size enterprises, which want more than only support and a little advertisements. This is about brand cooperations, collaboration with influencers and bloggers, but also more extensive social media campaigns that require additional budgets. In the ratio of two hours a day to full time, is the optimal time management for social media marketing in small to medium-sized companies.

What to look out for when interviewing your new Social Media Manager?

It is important to show sufficient references during the job interview and in particular to have a few details of the project explained. Your new social media manager should have channel management skills. He or she should also have looked after at least one channel with over 10,000 fans. He or she should be familiar with designs but also with the creation of creative content. He or she should master the creation of advertisements and the targeting of target groups contained therein while asleep.

You are also welcome to ask for one or the other detail, especially advertisements, as an online shop: What was the best click price and how did you reach it? This is specifically about split testing of different advertisements, so that the most effective one can be filtered out according to a certain amount of advertising budget. Who can answer all these topics in the job interview as Social Media Manager sovereign and in detail, should be able to help you!

And last but not least: Which tools do you recommend and why is it generally helpful to use which tools? (I was thinking about Hootsuite, Canva, Buffer, Pablo, Google Alerts and Fanpage Karma, but maybe you still have a great idea?)

There are many good recommendations in the area of online tools for social media activities. Definitely there should always be a tool to plan content in advance. Like hootsuite or buffer. With this you can plan your social media postings in advance. This not only helps to save time every day, because every process has to be repeated daily, but also possible sick days of the Social Media Manager as well as holidays can be cleverly avoided.

In addition, there are even more special tools for the individual social networks, e.g. monitoring tasks for Facebook YouTube or Instagram. There are several good recommendations for this, too; one of these tools should definitely be used if you want to evaluate the success of activities in social networks. For Facebook and YouTube there are programs like Radrly or Echbot, for Instagram and Influencer programs like Social Analytics One.

Content Spinning for Social Bots: Comment Spinner Tool

Today we want to look at a very special topic, precisely it is about content spinning. Content spinning, quite simply explained, deals with forming meaningful sentences from various variables. For example, we have a variable that looks simplified as follows:

  • {A|B|C}

The results:

  • A or
  • B or
  • C

From this variable we can generate different texts with a content spinning software, which appear to the reader again and again, because no text is like the other. Most advertising agencies use such tools to drive their search engine optimization. Content spinning is a hot topic, especially when it comes to SEO, i.e. the advancement of websites in search engine placement. But content spinning can also be used for social media marketing! Let us therefore take a direct look at best practice.

Social Media Bots and Comments

We have already reported about different social media software tools. Of course also via social media bots, e.g. Instazood and Combin, two programs with which you can assign automatic likes, follow other users, but also comment. The comments can be set in the social media bots. Our social media bot will then automatically go to thematically relevant profiles, e.g. if we are a fashion company, probably to people who are also interested in fashion. This can be set by #filter, as we have already described in the articles, and there the social media bot makes comments.

Why does a social media bot add comments to other profiles? Interaction is a very important feature for the ranking of individual profiles in social networks. The more often you interact and the more frequently other users interact with us, the more valuable the social media channel looks for the algorithm of the operators. Whether YouTube, Instagram, Facebook or Pinterest, who often gets clicked, rises to the top. So how do we get clicked often? How do we increase our range? The trick with a social media bot is very simple. By posting comments, users become aware of our social media account. They will answer what their friends may see and of course others who visit their social media channel and have not yet followed them. Different participants in a social network see our profile and the interaction we have with the user.

Use emoticons for more interaction

Emoticons are particularly suitable for expressing feelings quickly and easily, but also complex facts. However, emoticons are particularly well suited for simply transporting emotions! For example, we can post a smiling smiley under Photos, this smiling smiley usually fits in any case. However, there are also risks, e.g. one should be careful with hearts or kissing smileys. If you post a kissing smiley as a male fashion brand under a bodybuilder’s photo, for example, this can be misinterpreted. It would be even worse, for example, with children’s photos. Therefore, when choosing your comments, you have to be careful that they are so general that they do not offend anyone.

Spinning comments for more reach

Let’s now connect both worlds, add comments for more reach in social networking and spinning. In social media bots like Instazood, you can place a spun text in the text field under the Comments menu item. Our spun text ensures that new content is constantly being created. Here is a small, simplified example:

  • {This is|It is} {|going to be }{awesome|amazing}
    then…
  • {{This is|It is} {|going to be }|It{ will|} be{| pretty }}{awesome|amazing}
    then deeper…
  • {{This is|It is} {|going to be }|It{ will|’s gonna} be{| pretty{| interesting{,| and}} }}{awesome|amazing}{| {at the same time|{|{earn a lot of money|gain a lot of {|organic }traffic{| and rankings}} }every {day|minute|hour|week}}}
    and deeper…

We can now export our text or the social media bot exports it independently and then posts it under the media content of other people. Every single person gets a new text, unique and individual! Keep in mind that our example is even simpler, of course content spinning can be much more complex.

  • It is awesome
  • This is going to be amazing
  • or… It’s gonna be pretty interesting and awesome

In the next step, we add individual smileys to our spinning so that our comment output is even more individual. The result looks like this:

  • So awesome 😄
  • Really amazing 😃 girl

This way you can avoid sending the same comment or emoji all the time. This makes it look much more organic, i.e. more humane, for users.

Why are some social media agencies spinning comments?

In principle, the use of social media bots always carries the risk of being warned or punished by social network operators. After all, as a platform operator you want the users to be real, because you live from the advertising revenues of your customers. However, if most interaction on social networks is done by computer programs, the advertising prices are no longer so high. The higher the interaction rate of computer software programs, the less advertising space is worth, so simple is the bill. Therefore, social networks strive to prevent interactions through software programs and to keep the platform organic, as just described, human. Anyone who uses a social media bot goes as you run the risk of being punished.

Social media operators use algorithms to determine such conspicuous behavior. For example, if a person who has been doing maybe only ten likes per week for two years suddenly delivers 100 likes per hour over a long period of time and without a break, this is noticeable. The same applies to comments. For example, if the default setting in a social media bot is “like it” and your company posts this comment under 1,000 photos every day, it is noticeable. By modifying the comments with content spinning tools, the comments are more diverse and individual and therefore more humane. This reduces the risk of being punished by social media bots.

Advertisements in Instagram Stories: Corporate Advertising

Advertise even more effectively on Instagram? On Instagram you can not only advertise with a posting but also play advertising in the Instagram Stories. Today we want to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of such an Instagram Story ad. Like to see a real campaign? Check out this Instagram ads design best practice. But first, the question,

What is an instagram story?

Social networks usually have the possibility to capture special moments in the form of text, photos or videos. These postings are then collected in a timeline. This timeline contains all important moments and postings. On Facebook, this is a stream in which the various contents are displayed one below the other. Instagrams focus is on photos and small videos. On Instagram, these photos and videos appear in three columns next to each other. No matter how, the latest content is always in first place. Such a posting is eternal to watch, if it is not deleted by the user. Accordingly, bloggers put a lot of effort into creating such postings. Every photo has to fit, the post-processing but also the pose. With decoration and location, such a small Instagram photo shoot takes two or three hours.

This relatively high production effort makes it difficult to publish a lot of content. At some point Instagram wanted to set itself apart from the other social networks and came up with ways to make small stories possible. This idea actually came from the provider Snapchat, whose contents are always available for 24 hours. After 24 hours the photos and videos disappear automatically. This form of information transfer brings with it completely new ideas, ways and possibilities.

Stories accompany the everyday life of bloggers

Many are not only interested in the individual photos or videos of Blogger but also want to see the life behind it. How does my blogger actually live? What’s he doing in private? What are their hobbies? What will she experience today and what will she experience tomorrow? All these questions can now be answered in a small story. Stories are, so to speak, a multimedia form of the diary. The diary for the fans or followers can be seen for 24 hours. Who wants can accompany all too the everyday life of its favorite Blogger.

How many stories does a blogger post per day from experience?

According to our experience, experienced bloggers publish 5 to 8 such little stories per day. Often you start your story in the morning, e.g. in bed to greet your fans and wish them a good morning. Then it goes on e.g. with the breakfast or with the styling for the day. Next, you sit in the car or in the taxi, and inform your fans about the planning for the day. Afterwards you might go to the first event or a fashion boutique, immediately make another small selfie video and take your fans with you. That’s exactly what a story is, we see what our idols and role models exaggerate the day.

Stories are based on the very classical principle of well-known people and the people who follow them. Different questions arise for different target groups. Some want to know what everyday life is like, others may accompany their diet. Everyone has their own interests.

As a typical Instagram Star you can also give much more background information in the stories than in photos. Since bloggers on Instagram in particular work mainly with photos and not just video material, there are of course few messages that can be conveyed. Even if it is said that a picture says more than a thousand words, it is still important to interact with words. That’s what most Instagram Stars do with comments. Instagram Stories have become an essential part and are now of course also usable for companies from experience with the advertising possibilities.

What does an Instagram Story ad look like?

When users look at stories, start the stories of the day with one click. Either you see the most recent stories of the people you are following or the most recent stories of a certain person. So when you get the general news channel, you see stories from different bloggers. Ads are placed between the different stories. The ads should look as authentic as the bloggers’ stories. The big advantage in social media is the closeness, you should also look for this in your story, especially I’m talking about human contact. Pure advertisements with text do not work, we need the human touch. A story should not take long and get to the heart of the message relatively quickly.

What does an example Instagram Story video look like?

If you think of a typical video from a story, it will most likely be 8 to 10 seconds long. A human person will say or do something that will quickly attract attention. This can be e.g. a crazy dance, e.g. a current YouTube trend that is recorded. But the person can also say something crazy, so that you have direct attention. Packaged products that can be unpacked quickly also work. In any case, you should get to the core message very quickly. Ideally, the advertised product should also be used immediately.

Can links be placed in the advertisements?

In the Instagram Stories, you can access additional information by wiping up on the mobile phone screen. For example, you can place links to a website or an online shop. You can also add products from the Facebook or Instagram Shop. Since Instagram is part of Facebook, you first have to set up an online shop on Facebook. Once you have done this and both were able to link Facebook and Instagram, you can also link products directly in photos and videos. How long has Instagram not offered a direct link feature, but with the new ad options, advertising on Instagram is more and more worthwhile. As a social media agency, we are happy to recommend this method to our clients in Berlin and other cities.

At Price – How much do Instagram Ads cost?

The cost of Instagram advertising varies greatly and may or may not be more effective depending on the campaign setting. The costs vary between 0.02 € and 14.00 €.

Why does advertising work so well in Instagram Stories?

If you are under 30 years old, you should understand the concept of Instagram Stories relatively quickly and the emotional power you have while viewing stories of your favorite bloggers or idols. When you’re over 30, you can imagine a story in something like a TV show, short and crisp in a celebrity magazine. Here the whole day is described within 30 or 40 seconds and in between, for 5 to 8 seconds, your display appears in exactly the same look. However, there is no big indication before that it is an advertisement. The story simply runs between the other posts, without any conspicuous marking. At first glance, it is indistinguishable from the stories for the user and is therefore perceived with the same emotional strength as the bloggers’ contributions.

Placing one’s own brand is therefore so clever and offers itself very well as a new form or strategy in social media marketing. For companies and enterprises our Social Media Agency therefore offers suitable concepts for the strategic creation but also for the creation and production of content, small videos, with emotionalizing effect. We are your contact for all questions!

Develop social media strategy: case study product evaluation and ABC analysis

Who are you? Already the big sticking point. Do people love the brand or do they use the brand? Our starting point. Main sentence before starting to think about marketing strategy as a company, it is important to first focus exactly what we as a company, agency, product, service or club can score. Therefore, it is important to first highlight our core area, ie the products that work well or the products that could be of interest to our customers or new customers. It is worth taking a comprehensive look at the various product groups, but also on the individual products offered by our company.

Direct selling in the trade vs online shop: Separation

In principle, are the marketing strategies for products distributed in the trade different from those that are traded online? Yes! Definitely. Our Geißlein is so general that you can adopt this concept for your brand, in direct sales, stationary in the trade or even for their digital products.

Getting shoppers from an online video to visit downtown or the supermarket is very difficult. The barriers are just too high. First of all, your own stream of information is very full, that is, if we generate attention for a moment, that attention is gone in the next moment. Therefore one tries as social media agency to take the contact person directly with the first sighting. For example By entering in a newsletter or the direct click on the link, with which the customer lands directly in the online shop to order the product itself. Direct the own sales process organized, the higher the conversion at the end of the day. For companies, a jump of 2.5% in the conversion already makes a lot. If we sell 1000 products a month so far, we can increase sales to 1025. Should I have a 2.5% increase is already achievable through small changes in the advertisements or in the posting concept. Let us now come to the classification of products and product groups.

  • short attention span at the buyer
  • Social media agency would like the buyers by eg. Take entry in newsletter at the first sighting

Why is it worthwhile clustering your own products?

Whether on YouTube, Facebook or Instagram, every day you have only one posting or 3 to 4 stories available, so you can cover a product range of over 1000 products, of course, only poorly. But social media is not only used as a sales channel but also as a marketing channel, and we should focus on the products that have been well received by our buyers and that work. So we not only ensure that the interaction remains relatively high, by the already popular content, never change a winning team!

Task: Compress to ‘Running products’ / prepare for uniqueness

Identify product groups: A-B-C analysis

Before we turn to individual products, we take a look at our product groups. Are there already glaring differences in the large grouping? If yes, you can already set here, they are z.b. a great bike online retailer, then maybe best sell bikes. So it makes sense on Instagram to talk less about mechanical parts or to promote a screwdriver. Of course, in some postings, if bent possible, but then you should focus on bicycles. As a result, our fans know what it’s all about. If the products we market frequently deviate too much from our actual subject matter, many will not understand our concept at first sight. But especially in the social networks on fast information exchange arrives and thus the parameters for a sighting are different, for a commercial in the cinema, we like to take 20 seconds, for a channel on Instagram, we may have only a second. This is our leeway, the more we know which product group represents our company and our brand, the easier it is to communicate information to our customers. The easier the information is transmitted, the higher the success.

A-B-C analysis to find A products (integration)

Depending on the size of the company, the product groups can also be defined in an ABC analysis. When doing this you should always keep in mind to cover a maximum of 5% of the range with your A products. The B products, also running well but not so perfect, should make C & A 20% of the volume. We then categorize the remaining 75% of our product range under C. Looking back on our online commerce, we could now say that our products are bicycles from a higher price range. Our customers pay attention to quality and therefore usually buy higher quality bicycles. Customers who prefer cheap bicycles, anyway in the discount store around the corner buy. We carry products like helmets under B, they are important, sell well and bring a relatively good margin. Under category C then fall products such as bicycle tubes, since the profit share is relatively low, as screws, nuts or screwdriver set.

  • Focus on the product
  • Quick exchange of information in social networks so that the parameters for a sighting are different
  • Categorization of the product family

Products: Set on our top products for promotion on Facebook, Instagram & Youtube

Now that we have differentiated our product groups for sale on social networks and also categorized, we can now focus on individual products. While we previously had a relatively large group of products, we now look at the individual goods. This can be important not only for ads but also for all organic traffic. If we have potential on Instagram for people from 18 to 32, predominantly, that is to say 60%, female, we should offer our products accordingly. A lady’s bike should be in the foreground, men’s bikes a little in the background. At the same time you can use this for actions and z.b. targeted women, with the offer for a couple purchase. Buy 2 bikes and save 20%!

We now decide on the products that are officially to be seen for our fans and followers. As our timeline, unlike a story, is constantly visible to everyone, we obviously need to focus on a few products that best represent our company, as described earlier.

Tip! Who wants to create a guideline for the social media marketing campaigns or postings in his own company, should stick to all products hereby. These examples can be supplemented later also excellent bullet points, z.b. for product variations or new products that are required for this particular class. In sickness cases but also on vacation, every employee has so quickly all the important information at hand and can act accordingly.

Bestseller Offline: Getting customers into the business – but when?

Anyone who is not only active in online trading but also stationary, should also make a division of the bestsellers from the trade and a second with the bestseller online. For many companies, sales differ. A very simple example is TV sets. They are big, bulky and many want to compare your high end TV set in advance of the purchase. Many are still buying in the classic electronics market. Here you can see different TV manufacturers on site and compare the devices with each other, image resolution, color spectrum and so on. High-quality TV sets are still a product that is traded in stationary stores. At the same time, electronics manufacturers may even offer you a SmartHome system. This tax z.b. the lights, the light intensity but also the colors. This product is being bought by a great many people on the internet, as it is possible to obtain information online and the direct comparison with other manufacturers does not require a visit to the Internet. Thus, the same company has a different focus in brick-and-mortar retail, which means that marketing campaigns that are based on this stationary trade must contain corresponding products. The same applies to the digital sale of products.

News: Announcement, presentation and takeover in portfolio

New products are extremely different. While automobile companies market a novelty large and already announce months in advance, innovations are z.b. In the post trade or at Amazon dealers relatively fast-paced and equipped without much marketing budget. Whether long-term or short-term, novelties should always have their own post in social media planning. Because what is it about in social networks? Distraction, entertainment, news, trends! All this we can deliver with some planning. A new product can already be advertised in advance, z.b. simply through an Instagram story. Here is already indicated that there will be a fantastic, new product from our house soon! In 3 days you will learn more. With such a small but also with complex and stories, here the comparison to the automobile industry, it is possible to make novelties an integral part of the social media strategy. Due to the frequent posting of news, we can also distinguish ourselves clearly from other companies. In particular, the constant provision of news and information, is operated by a few companies. The production of this content is relatively expensive and the production z.b. Photoshop requires a lot of expertise and expertise. Not only when it comes to the simple creation of graphics but also when it gets more complex, eg. with animated pictures or with videos.

  • own post for news in social media planning
  • new products e.g. Apply via Instagram Story
  • frequent posting of news to other companies

Conclusion Product Rating for Social Media Planning

When planning your social media strategy, think about which products are of interest to you at the beginning of any consideration!

  • Which products work well?
  • Which products attract attention?
  • Which products have a high margin?
  • Which products can be delivered worldwide?
  • Which products have shipping charges?

After the internal evaluation all these questions and the breakdown, z.b. in an ABC analysis, the best products help you to find out. The better you focus your own product portfolio, finding a common thread, the easier it is for your fans and followers to understand the content or the messages.

Did you know, every time you log in to Facebook we have an average of 1500 news. On Instagram it’s no different, you do not log every 30 minutes a particular just once or twice a day. And that is the rule! Facebook, Instagram, YouTube sort so exactly what content currently relevant to us and which are not. If you’re already at the beginning of your social media strategy to use only those products that are guaranteed to appeal to their fans, you can already contribute a great deal to interaction and relevance.

The music may be stored locally on your own device, for example to edit it with filters or to use it again later (in Musical.ly):

(B) save your User Videos locally to your device;

Share the content on other social media platforms only partially possible

Basically, as with music, there are direct agreements between Musical.ly and other operators. Only in these platforms the own videos may be shared. You can find them directly in the app and can share from there. So no mistakes can arise.

(C) upload your User Videos to the applicable App or certain third party social media platforms (e.g. , Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter) subject to the terms and conditions in this EULA and any usage restrictions imposed by any licensors of S R Samples ( e.g. , sound recording and/or musical work copyright owners); (D) communicate your User Videos to friends via different messaging services; and (E) publicly display and perform your User Videos and the embedded sound recordings and musical works to other Users of the Service. If the Service does not permit you to Post User Videos directly to one or more third party social media platforms, then you are not authorized by the Company to Post your User Videos on such platforms and you are solely responsible for obtaining any necessary rights, clearances, permissions or authorizations for such Posting and may be subject to liability for your failure to do so in the event of any unauthorized Posting of User Videos. For the avoidance of doubt, User Videos exclude any Broadcast Content.

Data scandal on Facebook / Cambridge Analytica and criticism of influencer marketing | Social Media Week

This week, the social media world was overshadowed by the data scandal around Facebook. The exact details are still about 300 million data packets, which were obtained by the social media analysis firm Cambridge Analytica by dubious methods. Quite simply explained:

Why is the data scandal so big?

Previously, it was always possible to retrieve information from friends friends. So if resourceful developers develop a tool that people use, they sign up for, and also authorize their personal data to be forwarded, you’ll receive large data packets (many people) – from just one person. If a Facebook user has an average of 500 friends, you can already cover 50,000 people with just 100 participants (50,000 data packets). We all know postings in our timeline titled “So you would look like an actor” or “What is your zodiac sign?” These applications are written solely to collect data, the more data you have collected, the better it is possible to evaluate user profiles and target them with advertising. As far as the current data security scandal is concerned, this is about two points:

1. Advertising can also contain political content

Advertising does not necessarily have to be run by companies, advertising can also contain messages of political opinion. So data packets can influence elections, as is currently being debated, about the US election and the decision to “Brexit”. If you want to read more about it, you will find all relevant links in the press review below!

2. Analysis of persons for loans, loans and more

Who owns names and geodata, can connect people with more information. Let’s just say – a database about credit card information and a second one with Facebook data packets. From this new conclusions can be drawn. The more data a large company collects, the more accurately it can create profiles of individuals, but also of streets or neighborhoods. In the end, for inquiries, for example, for loans for houses, resorted to many data. As a result, our “private behavior” in social networks has an influence on our “public reputation”. Once the data has been created, it can be copied many times, very simply. If a person is thinking for a company, he can become it for other companies as well (data sales).

Not only Facebook was considered critical this week, but also influencer marketing.

Criticism of Influencer Marketing: Disadvantages of Hypes – Contribution to WDR (German TV)

We met with WDR this week to look at the critical aspects of influencer marketing. The reason was the new sugar tax in the UK, it is levied on food that has a particularly high sugar content. At the same time the big soft drink manufacturers advertise with young bloggers. It creates interesting videos for young target groups that work well on YouTube. For the adolescent user it is not easy to differentiate that these videos are ads. For the user, at first, only the connection of their own favorite blogger and the soft drink brand is: positive brand image! But that the coveted fashion blogger hardly ever drinks soft drinks because he or she is actually eating healthily and paying attention to the figure, as well as doing sports, does not become clear. What stays in the head is the linkage between the brand and the blogger. What other risks are there in influencer marketing? We have taken a critical look together with the WDR.

Advertising marking in influencer marketing

How do you characterize advertising in social media networks properly? Many companies rarely know the legal aspects of their daily work with bloggers. There are general guidelines of social networks and advertising must be featured in some social networks. When working with young bloggers, you should point them to this aspect. Also, the advertising tag was one of the topics this week.
