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)

@ambernaslund Thank you Amber for sparing a moment to leave a comment. It made my day!
I truly believe your inspiring words will creating lasting change in ways we can't foresee at the present moment. I am going to be watching very carefully to see how it all develops. I cannot wait!

@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!
2 years, 2 months ago on Facebook Promoted Posts Remove the Level Playing Field
@brittanybotti Totally agree.
@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.
@ElissaFreeman I think the choice of the word 'purity' says it all!
@RebeccaTodd I struggle to see how you have the same social experience through Livefyre as you do on Facebook. I may have missed something.
@RebeccaTodd You may be onto a winner there.. :)
@cksyme Interesting to hear you think they have their own agenda.

@KenMueller I seem to remember reading an article somewhere that said Yelp's sales team were very persistent at upselling!
@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.
@kateupdates Ha. :)

@ginidietrich Well, let's hope that change happens quickly. We can't afford to be thinking about traditional media relations anymore.
@Lisa Gerber Yes, I detest the word 'publics'!

@kateupdates You may have noticed through your notifications that I had left a comment previously. I have since altered my position on the matter - http://fyre.it/1xAU
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.
@jeanniecw Love that quote from Marshall Field!!
@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.
@Shonali Personally, I think the word guest is better than passenger.
@ginidietrich @Harry Brumleve If only more startups realised the simplicity of listening. :)
@ginidietrich @Adam | Customer Experience Gini, are you telling me we will never have virtual Starbucks??
2 years, 3 months ago on Pros and Cons of a Virtual Office
@NathanKSmith Yes, I would agree. It is important to consider the type of employee you should allow to work virtually and not simply assume everyone will work well in the virtual space.
@jelenawoehr That is true.

@geoffliving Well, I think you are getting it spot on so far. :)
@kateupdates Isn't it a great word though? Kudos for picking it! :)
@ginidietrich @ExtremelyAvg I personally believe that those in the corporate world probably share the belief that a big office equals success.
@ginidietrich @kateupdates The simplicity of a virtual office should mean that employees can just check-in when they need to, am I right?
@ginidietrich @allenmireles What a perfect response Gini. :)
@jelenawoehr I wonder if there are commercial decisions which influence a celebrities decision to stay in the public eye?
Geoff, kudos on adopting the strategy of sharing the message through various bloggers who have a lot more social influence and viral impact than most media outlets could ever have.
@chelpixie @ginidietrich @ElissaFreeman :)
@chelpixie Well, what is stopping you? :)
@AmyMccTobin You live on Anna Maria Island? Jealous. I went there a few years back and loved it!!
@ginidietrich And yet, they never seem to pay attention until it is too late!
@thejoshuawilner That must be so rewarding to be such an active father for your children. :)
@ginidietrich I hate that some college graduates give the rest of hard working college students like me a bad reputation.
@AmyMccTobin You are obviously benefiting from having the best of both worlds Amy. :)
@ginidietrich That's interesting to hear how riding your bike at lunchtime has such a positive impact. :)
@SkyeLRodgers That's fantastic Skye. :)
@belllindsay Yes, trust is hugely important!
@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.
@ginidietrich Excellent!! :)
