WOMMA: MLB’s Youth problem and How WOM Marketing Creates Audiences and Fans I have a confession to make; I skipped school as a kid to go to Mariners games (sorry Mom and Dad). In my defense, the Mariners were pretty good in those years, which created a lot of fun baseball memories growing up. continue reading
Womma_JerktechToday we live amidst the workings of a “sharing economy.”  By sharing economy, I mean an environment where we have commercial interactions that are based on personal and many-to-many versus one (impersonal)-to-many.  For a detailed explanation on what constitutes a sharing economy, check out Wikipedia's entry.   continue reading

… AND WHY CONTROLLING YOUR MESSAGE IS IMPORTANT

What are widely (among my friend groups) considered the world’s ugliest shoes were sold with an assumption that we are all familiar with from the paleo, gluten free and now barefoot running trends?   Early man had it right, and all this technology is just getting in our way. With very little science supporting these movements – largely driven by their dedicated fans who share the value proposition – you will be healthier and more injury-free if you adopt these.   continue reading

Word of Mouth at its heart was literally one person passing on comments or recommendations to another. (For great read on WOM fundamentals, check out this book by Andy Sernovitz).  This required the physical sharing of a common locality to experience this Word of Mouth phenomenon.   As communications technology advanced, this spatial requirement for Word of Mouth diminished.  Enter the Internet age – where we have people from one part of the world influencing others on the other side of the globe.   continue reading
One of the things I’ve been pondering lately revolves around the digital marketing and social media buzz words:  Owned, Paid and Earned.   While these words imply different channels, marketer relationships with those channels, media formats, their audience reach and persona types, I believe it is time to stop considering them mutually exclusive silos.   continue reading
The lines of Social Media Marketing and Content Marketing were already well on their way of becoming increasingly blurred when Google's Hummingbird change in 2013 increased the impact that social media assets have in determining search engine rankings.   As a refresher (or maybe primer), let's provide a distinction between Social Media Marketing and Content Marketing.  Distilled from a 2012 post by Toby Murdock on the Content Marketing Institute's website, the main difference is that: continue reading
Matt Cutts’ recent post on his personal blog articulated a devolving pattern of spammy “guest blog” practices. It was a fairly thorough exploration of a common problem of paying for content simply to gain links. While it was a complex argument, and a solid point of view - it was summed up everywhere in four words: “Guest Blogging is Dead” which is not exactly what he said - it was a bit more of a, cautionary tale - ‘be careful who you invite to blog’. Basically Cutts’ point can be boiled down to one salient point; Blogging - and content - cannot just be about SEO. If you look at the forest for the virtual trees you are missing the value for users in the creation of content and the curation of voices.

By Rachel Ullstrom / Social Account Director, Rio SEO   This past week the Rio SEO Social team was in full force at the Word of Mouth Marketing Association (WOMMA) Summit (#WOMMASummit) in beautiful yet cold Nashville, Tenn.

Every month or so, another article claiming the “end of social media” is published in reaction to some small change in subscribers, participants or popular sites. It’s the sort of argument I imagine was popular among stair makers when the elevator was invented. These ‘chicken littles’ (in this case the Daily Mail) recently noted that investment in social sites was down in July and asked if it was “the end of the social network.” continue reading
