Arik,

 

I have only just started to investigate the potential of Instagram as a marketing platform.

 

In a recent project myself and a team of volunteers used it to support the promotional efforts for a retail pop-up shop. The immediacy of publishing and filter options were useful but I couldn't help wondering if the active IG community would be lost in the mix if Facebook decided to shutdown Instagram and merge the dev team into Facebook's photo team.

 

Kudos to Facebook though for exploiting the potential of sharing IG photos on the web (http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-07-10/facebook-s-instagram-starts-tool-for-embedding-images.html)

 @katskrieger I think the second point on the list in the article you link to "Concentrate on making your website more advocacy- and engagement-oriented. " is the most important alternate marketing method to Facebook!

 @katskrieger I would be interested to know what the difference in conversion rate is between those people who promote posts versus those who just appear organically in someone's news stream.

 @KenMueller Interesting to hear that Yelp is filtering out "too many good reviews"

The one flaw of UGC is the inability to filter out content. We create the content and the online recommendation service publishes the reviews and ideas we have.

 

This could be a really important step for Yelp as many in the industry are talking up the idea of services such as Yelp becoming a more direct search engine to use then Google.

 @ginidietrich Well, let's hope that change happens quickly. We can't afford to be thinking about traditional media relations anymore.

In my opinion, the PR playbook was torn up years ago. There is no traditional PR anymore. It's just a lot of businesses trying to figure out how the heck the new marketing tools work.

 

I also think that Pizza Hut was an established player who had wide enough scope and reach to run with this idea. The amount of small businesses that try to capitalize on the same event such as the presidential debates often fail because they simply don't have the reach.

 @Carmelo The word tribe is now quite common amongst small business owners with a personal brand online.

 

I personally quite like the idea of using a word like 'tribe' because I believe it humanises the experience a business owner has with his/her community.

 @jelenawoehr That's an interesting perspective Jelena. I must admit I can totally relate to your dilemma with household chores. It's all about prioritising the most important things on my to-do list and then doing things like dishes after I have completed my work.

 

I can also relate to your point about enjoying the company of others in a work environment. I feel my IQ go up a few points when I am amongst smart people who are like minded.
