Good Post,Tom. It's especially timely as I see more spammy content infiltrating the Twittersphere. My personal favorite is "Be a Resource" If readers take away anything from your post, it should be that successful twitter folks are helpful resources to their communities.
Happy New Year, Tom!

Totally agree Joan. I see more spammy content as well, but the beauty of social media is the ability to ignore those individuals. They can only succeed if the Twitter community allows them to.

Tom, My B2B clients are each at different stages of engagement with social media. From disinterested to curious to "how quickly can we get started?" to fully functioning with both inbound and outbound programs.

What we are doing to help convince & convert (apologies to Jay Baer) them is to lead by example. I am encouraging everyone at MLT Creative to be active "digital citizens" (chapter 12 Inbound Marketing) and we're not just seeing results, we're tracking them.

I wish there was a better way to explain the weird mix of spam and snake oil so clients could completely avoid it but I think it's something you have to wade through and learn to filter out.

Great post and good advice as usual Tom. Thanks!

Billy, thanks for the positive feedback and your comments about snake oil salesmen are so true. An experienced Tweeter ca usually spot the spammy self-promoters almost instantly. That's one benefit (of many) a consultant can bring to a b2b client new to Twitter, until the client has enough experience to do this on their own.
Right, bmitchell, At every stage of business twitter is too useful!

Easy and fastest way of getting instant traffic and exposure for a site. As long as you are establishing rapport among other members or your followers, then you can potentially gain market absorption.

Best of 2007: Articles and Blog Posts on SEM

Search engine marketing (SEM) is one of the fastest-growing categories in all of advertising, because it is both measurable and logical: present your ads when people are searching for what you're selling. A well-crafted search marketing program can provide not only broad brand exposure at a very reasonable cost (with CPMs of $10 or less), but also high-ROI lead generation. As with any other type of advertising, however, a poorly-designed campaign will be a disappointing waste of money. In addition to best practices in search engine marketing , the following articles and blog posts were among the best of 2007 at providing helpful guidance for creating and managing effective search marketing programs. Five Common Paid Search Mistakes That Can Sink Your Campaign by Search Engine Guide Blogger Jennifer Laycock explains how common mistakes such as "ego bidding," writing a single ad for all keywords, and directing all of your traffic to a single landing page can limit the res

The 8 Layers of a B2B Web Marketing Plan

One way to think about designing a B2B technology web marketing plan is as a series of layers, like an onion. At the core is SEO—simply making your website "findable" through organic search to buyers who are looking for what you offer. Working out from the center are concentric layers of additional investment and sophistication. Small companies and start-ups with modest budgets will focus most of their efforts on the inner layers or rings, which are primarily designed for lead generation. As the company and its marketing budget grow, efforts can be expanded to the outer layers, which are aimed more at branding but support lead generation efforts. Ideally, a company eventually reaches the outer layer where pure branding activities (such as print advertising) help to maximize the effectiveness of lead generation programs (such as SEM) near the center of the circle. This diagram shows how different types of web marketing programs can be prioritized in order to maximize the retur

Getting More Out of Each Click with "Post-Click Marketing"

With the economy now officially in a recession (as if we didn't know that), marketers are under increasing pressure to do more with less. On the interactive marketing side, few marketers will get budget increases enabling them to drive more clicks. The challenge, then, is to maximize marketing productivity—to get more leads out of the same number of clicks. This is the first of two posts that will look at how to improve conversion rates to get more value from each click. One answer to this challenge is provided by "post-click marketing," a.k.a. lead automation management vendors. While the specifics of each service vary, all of them essentially: automate the process of extracting visitor IP information from your log files; match the IP address to an organization; filter out ISPs; and map the company name to one or more external databases to provide additional information (company size, industry, key contacts etc.). The better services also use geo-location filte
