,Fun‘s fun, but let‘s get serious. David Murray, in hisin the, asked:Is social
media The Next Big Thing in our business? I know you‘ll let me know by answering
this urgent call for essays. Please, readers. Please try to succeed where
Allan Jenkins has failed: teaching me (and your colleagues) about how social
media can make for better internal communications.,The Allan-Jenkins-failed
nonsense aside (it was not a goal of Allan‘s blog to teach David anything),
I have no doubt that social media can enhance a company‘s performance by
altering the nature of communication within the organization. But rather than
simply evangelize the various ways that might be so, I put out a call to
communicators I know in companies where social media have been implemented.
As responses come in, I‘ll post them here.First out of the gate is Brian
Kramer, manager of Global Web Communications for McDonald‘s:From our global
intranet, we are using secured blogs as a way to share best practices and
better align individuals, departments, and subject matter areas. Blogging
helps fill a gap that sometimes exists in our current online environment with
more traditional one-directional websites or applications. By providing for
real-time, two-way dialogue between individuals and groups of individuals
over the web, blogs can help break down geographic barriers and allow for
improved sharing of best practices and provide important links to existing
content on the intranet. Our President and COO, Mike Roberts, was our first
internal blogger, and almost immediately he found the blog to be a great way
to gain insight and feedback from people at all levels of the company. In
some of his first posts, Mike had more than forty comments from multiple
countries providing ideas on a number of items including ways to improve our
operations and sharing innovative ideas from different markets.Thanks to
Brian for the contribution. I‘ll post more as they arrive in my inbox. Anybody
else who wants to share successes in deploying social media internally,
comment here or drop me an email. Let‘s see if we can collect enough real-world
tales to convince David that social computing, if not the next big thing,
is at least a big deal.Part IIThe second installment in this series comes
from Michael Pusateri, vice president, Engineering at the Disney ABC Cable
Networks Group in Burbank, California:Is social media The Next Big Thing in
our business?,Well, not to be a naysayer, but I don‘t see it that simply adding
blogs with a touch of wikis suddenly leads to big improvements in company
performance. IMHO, the social software‘ tools are inexpensive and versatile
bits of code that allow existing information workflows to function better
at a lower costs than traditional alternatives. Most companies have a plan
(though sometimes poor) for internal communications and weblog software makes
it simple to implement the plan in an understandable and recognizable way.Most
workers recognize the information architecture of a weblog, informational
posts in a chronological order with a personal writing style, and can accept
it as a valid mode of communication. Making the leap to something like Atom
& RSS syndication and aggregation is something most people are not familiar
with and therefore is a much bigger leap to make.Again, IMHO, the key to using
social media‘ is in having something to say and a plan to say it. The tools
are secondary. Too often the tools come first, ―Look, we have a company
weblog.‖ instead of ―Look, we have something interesting to say.‖We‘ve been
able to take existing workflows and use weblogs and syndication to improve
the process significantly, with the user seeing a fundamental change they
need to adapt to. Our use of wikis is moving forward slowly, but is a
fundamental change in the way we work. That kind of change takes time.If
anything is the next big thing, it‘s open and shared code bases that allow
organizations to tweak software rapidly to remain agile.,Pusateri‘s
take-that the tools are employed as the means of achieving goals as part of
a strategy-is entirely consistent with my own philosophy (which you know if
you‘re a reader of this blog). To Mike‘s point: Social computing is a cultural
shift that will occur gradually within organizations that employ the tools
in support of business objectives and employee needs. Thanks, Mike!Part
IIICommunication representatives from a third company have weighed in with
details about the benefits of deploying social media for internal
communications purposes. This time its Jim Lukach, manager of Online
Communications, and Jochen Specht, webmaster, for Siemens Corporation:Here
are some of the things we are up to:,Here at Siemens we have found the new
forms of online communications to be so effective that the company is now
getting ready to roll out a global platform for employee blogging. With our
colleagues in Germany, we were quick to identify how blogging could be a
solution in bringing a global corporation closer together. The new platform
will open blogging up to all of our global employees. Our global CEO, Klaus
Kleinfeld, maintains a blog for internal communications purposes and receives
comments from employees all over the world. In the U.S., we are also
experimenting with podcasting and video blogs. They seem to work well as a
supplement to our more traditional forms of communication and we plan on using
them more and more in the future.,Add to||Technorati:is principal ofwhich
focuses on helping organizations apply online communication capabilities to
their strategic organizational communications.As a professional
communicator, Shel also writes the blog.,,Advertising is a medium that
constantly evolves. It changes with the times. It adapts to new technologies.
It is unrelenting in its desire to find new and better ways to reach an
ever-growing consumer marketplace. But its not simply advertising that
evolves.Consumers and consumer behavior are changing too. As we look at the
future of advertising, it‘s important to look at how the two interact and
change together over time. Without a doubt, the Internet has revolutionized
the industry. It has taken the world – and the advertising world by storm.
And it has only just begun to make an impact.The Internet has become a global
medium with massive potential. Forty years ago, television was considered
new media. Fifteen years ago, it was cable. Today, people spend increasing
amounts of time online at the expense of other media. The first evidence of
this audience migration appeared in 1998 in a Forrester Research report. The
researchers asked PC users which activities they were giving up to spend more
time on their computers. 75% of the respondents said they gave up television.
Interactive. That is the real key behind the power of the Internet in
advertising. The Internet is really the only medium where we see true
interactivity. In addition:,It means greater viewer involvement.,It means
users can access services according to their interests and their tastes.,They
can request and receive specialized product information, make an instant
purchase, all the while saving time and expense.,The effectiveness of Web
advertising appears to relate to the fact that surfing the web is an actively
engaging experience, similar to reading magazines.Consumers also have the
choice to "opt-in" to receiving additional information on a
particular product or service. In Seth Godin‘s groundbreaking book,
Permission Marketing, he said, "By reaching out only to those
individuals who have signaled an interest in learning more about a product,
Permission Marketing enables companies to develop long-term relationships
with customers, create trust, build brand awareness- and greatly improve the
chances of making a sale."All the Rage: Pay Per Click and Natural Search
Using SEOIt‘s no secret what has taken over the business world, in industry
after industry. Pay Per Click and Natural Search Using Search Engine
Optimization (SEO). Today, being on the first page for your most popular
keyword phrase is like having the most memorable prime time television
commercial in 1973.Pay per click advertising on search engines allows you
to choose keywords you would like your site to appear under when a potential
customer engages in a search. You decide how much you are willing to pay each
time a person clicks on the search results. But it can be competitive – and
expensive if you are trying to use keywords that are very popular.Natural
Search or Organic Search is the non-biased, non-paid results that come up
when you do a search. This can be influenced heavily by what‘s called
"Search Engine Optimization" – the complex and time consuming
practice of ensuring that your website is doing all the right things in order
to rank high for certain search terms. In this arena, smaller companies can
out maneuver large corporations, so there‘s a lot of excitement generated
because of this.Essentially, that‘s where the power of advertising is going.
It‘s all about Search. And Search is only going to become more important over
the next ten years. If you can get on that coveted first page organically,
well then, more power to you!Web Sites, Banner Ads, etc..The other forms of
on-line advertising vehicles are of course, web sites, banner advertising
placed on others sites, newsletters, ezines, and email. They are used in many
different combinations, for different purposes at different times. But most
savvy companies are using all of them. The value of banner ads has been hotly
debated for a number of years.Opponents argue that the click-through rates
have gone down so much, that banner ads are nothing but wasted money. But
research clearly shows that banners are very effective in building brand
awareness. On-line users may not click on a banner, but if they see it enough
times, the company‘s name is drilled into their head. When its time to shop,
that product or service is first in their mind.Simply being exposed to the
brand as one surf‘s the web is enough to make a big impression.The impact
of banners on brand awareness was tested for the first time in fall 1996 by
Millward Brown International. Three brands were tested including a men‘s
apparel brand, a telecommunications brand and a technology company. The
findings were significant and conclusive for each brand.Awareness was
significantly greater among the banner-exposed (test) group than the
non-exposed (control) group. Specifically, exposure to the ad banners alone
increased brand awareness from 12% to 200% in a banner-exposed group. The
study also compared the impact of the banner ads in this test to television
and magazine norms from prior Millward Brown studies. The findings were
remarkable: Single exposure to a Web banner generated greater awareness than
a single exposure to a television or print ad. Rather, the effectiveness of
Web advertising seems to stem from the fact that Web usage is an actively
engaging exercise.Newsletters and EzinesMost smart marketers out there have
either a newsletter or ezine nowadays. These types of customer communication
and advertising tools will only continue to grow in use and importance. It
goes back to the whole "what‘s in it for me?" issue. The customer
wants to be part of the process. They want to learn something. Or keep
themselves updated on the latest news. Most of all, they want to get something
out of the relationship. They want to do more than buy something, they want
to improve their lives in some small way – and they want you to help them
do that.Email AdvertisingEmail is another of the big three Internet
advertising mediums. Companies like Got Marketing, , and N5R are providing
new and exciting email marketing solutions for thousands of progressive
firms. Their results are impressive. Consider response rates that average
10 to 20 times those of traditional direct mail. Or campaign Network marketing
referral rates as high as 40%.The bottom line is that programs they put
together have produced millions of leads for clients. And it‘s surprisingly
affordable. This means that almost anyone can now utilize this advertising
medium. But it has to be done smartly, because you don‘t want your emails
to end up in spam filters. That is one inherent problem with email advertising,
especially in the past two years. N5R in particular is now one of the leading
direct marketing agencies in North America. They develop innovative
one-to-one marketing campaigns that drive a measurable, positive ROI on
behalf of their clients by driving acquisition and conversion to trial and
purchase for their clients. They have developed award-winning strategies in
five major industry sectors.These include Internet Marketing and Online
Contests/Promotions, Permission Based Email Marketing, Text Messaging,
Success Based Email. In Internet Marketing and Online Contests/Promotions,
marketers can gather and compile behavior and preference data from prospects
and customers and use this information to send targeted and relevant
information. Developing ongoing programs of one-to-one communication is cost
effective and measurable. Contests are the quickest and most effective way
to gather this data and build relationships with customers. It‘s very possible
to build a permission-based database of over 50,000 prospects in only 6 weeks,
increase web site traffic by 900%, improved online sales revenue by 1,000%,
and achieve $40 million in sales from leads generated by an online
promotion.With Permission Based Email Marketing, loyal clients are just an
e-mail away. Where traditional marketing campaigns fail, e-mail can shine
through. E-mail marketing allows companies to speak one-to-one with their
audience in a respectful, intelligent and creative way. It is extremely
cost-effective, provides the foundation for future marketing initiatives,
and delivers measurable results.Text Messaging or SMS (Short Message Service)
is a technology that allows people to send and receive short (up to 160
characters) written messages on cellular phones. It is already hugely popular
in Europe and Asia and is growing rapidly in North America. SMS marketing
offers the following benefits: One-to-one communication with your target
group, anywhere, anytime reach, low campaign cost, and very measurable data.
Imagine if your mobile phone received an email message, "You‘re only
a block from a Starbuck‘s; stop in for a 20% discount on your latte."
The data is available and marketers are starting to tap into these resources.
Success Based Email is free email deployment where companies only pay for
results.This "pay-per-click" approach is based on the premise that
companies will only pay for each email that receives a
"click-through" from the recipient. Not only does the new approach
enhance the value of marketing dollars spent on such campaigns, the move will
likely trim total dollars spent. For example if 100,000 emails are sent, 70%
are opened and 15% of the recipients actually click on a link in the email
then clients will only be charged for the 15,000 people that clicked on the
link, not for the other 85,000 that didn‘t. The return on investment (ROI)
or cost savings inherent in this new approach will be very appealing to
permission-based marketers. The bottom line is that marketers will now pay
for real, measurable results.The Next StepCompared with other media, the Web
is still limited in its bandwidth offerings. But it‘s getting better every
day. With the continued improvement of bandwidth development, we will soon
be positioned well to create full-featured multimedia advertising on the
Internet. Once a majority of consumers have DSL capability and the computer
power to access it, there will be some incredible things happening. Sites
like are already offering some very compelling visual and audio imagery in
the form of movie trailers and music videos. Market researchers, futurists
and industry experts predict that interactivity through multiple
technologies and devices will change how consumers interact with marketers.
Interactive advertising will soon be everywhere.So, in effect, it could be
considered the age of mass customization in advertising. Advertisers will
have the tools to narrow their targets and address Web ads to individuals
and not to a demographic or psychographic group. Why market a commercial to
1 million people, most of who aren‘t in the target audience, when the same
ad could be shown to 10,000 people who are very interested in the product
or service? Most of those will even give their name and address.Interactivity
will also be a part of television. Interactive TV will be the norm in the
near future, and this too is another exciting opportunity. There will be total
integration between TV channels and advertisers web sites. While we are
watching TV, we will be able to interact with what we are seeing, ordering
hamburgers from the McDonalds down the street or communicating with the local
car dealer that we are interested in buying a car. Clicking on products we
see in TV shows and ordering them will be easy.Your TV will keep track of
what you are watching. Your TV will even know what kind of car you own because
you‘ll tell for the free oil change you‘re offered in exchange. The oil change
will be compliments of DirecTV, and it is only good at Jiffy Lube, which has
paid to be the official oil-change provider for DirecTV." That‘s the
way it will work.Service Initiative AdvertisingAnother major trend is what
I call "Service Initiative Advertising". Let‘s face it; consumers
are tired of advertising as usual. Many people say they hate commercials.
The success of Tivo and satellite radio can attest to this. They want more
from their advertising. And who could blame them? People are inundated with
advertising today- every where they go.Service Initiative Advertising takes
the whole process one step further. Essentially how it works is that it
requires advertising to offer some value to the consumer. For example: Kraft
Foods creates a website that offers busy mothers a source for quick recipes
for the family evening meal. The idea isn‘t to push Kraft products, but to
promote Kraft as a brand that offers a service to customers. There have been
companies who positioned their entire marketing strategy on this tenant. Now,
it will become a key part of advertising for almost everyone. The consumer
wants to know you care. It‘s important to realize that advertising mediums
of the past will still be here. But, they may look a little different in the
future.Direct mail will always be around as long as people like to receive
mail. And despite external challenges, the U.S. Postal service will still
be around. TV and radio will be here too. But the future is here. And
advertising will never be the same.One thing that is certain is that it will
continue to be as exciting and dynamic as it has been in the past. But now,
the consumer is a part of the process.About the AuthorDo you need Search Engine

English Dictionary, which is approaching 130 years old, contains over 600,000
words, definitions and pronunciations. As the premier authority on the
English language, they like to update their word lists quite
frequently. This month, this means the inclusion of some text-speak
classics.The OED haswhich went into effect late yesterday. Out of the 45,437
new words and meanings and over 285,000 revisions, a select few have filled
internet tech lovers with joy, amusement and most likely a little shame. LOL
(laughing out loud), FYI (for your information) and OMG (oh my god) have been
added alongside their buddies IMHO (in my humble opinion), TMI (too much
information) and BFF (best friends forever) in the newest edition of the
OED.SMH.Graeme Diamond of the OED explains:Of course in such a context
initialisms are quicker to type than the full forms, and (in the case of text
messages, or Twitter, for example) they help to say more in media where there
is a limit to a number of characters one may use in a single message. OMG
and LOL are found outside of electronic contexts, however; in print, and even
in spoken use (see, for example, the 2003 quotation for LOL int.), where there
often seems to be a bit more than simple abbreviation going on. The intention
is usually to signal an informal, gossipy mode of expression, and perhaps
parody the level of unreflective enthusiasm or overstatement that can
sometimes appear in online discourse, while at the same time marking oneself
as an ‗insider‘ au fait with the forms of expression associated with the latest
technology.Basically, the OED feels as though many of these ―initialisms‖
have permeated our society in such a way that three simple letters can suggest
excitement, parody and sarcasm. And let‘s be honest, if you ever saw anyone
write ―laughing out loud‖ instead of ―LOL‖ you would punch them in the
face. Be honest.Diamond also provides us with a tidbit of which I was
unaware:As such usage indicates, many people would consider these recent
coinages, from the last 10 or 20 years, and associate them with a younger
generation conversant with all forms of digital communications. As is often
the case, OED‘s research has revealed some unexpected historical
perspectives: our first quotation for OMG is from a personal letter from 1917;
the letters LOL had a previous life, starting in 1960, denoting an elderly
woman (or ‗little old lady‘; see LOL n./1); and the entry for FYI [FYI phr.,
adj., and n.], for example, shows it originated in the language of memoranda
in 1941.Along with the initialisms, the first emoticon was also added to the
database. The word ―heart‖ was already established as a verb in some case,
as in ―I heart pizza,‖ but the OED has added a sense of the verb ―heart‖ with
―<3.‖ As Diamond explains, ―in this update may be the first English usage
to develop via the medium of T-shirts and bumper-stickers.‖And 13 year old
girls.On Monday,with the swapping of ―e-mail‖ for ―email‖ and the addition
of ―cellphone‖ and ―smartphone‖ into their list of proper usage. The update
from the OED is just another example of the universal impact of technology
in our current culture. So among the Shakespearean words of linsey-woolsey
and lubberly goes LOL. Even with this development, I‘m not holding my breath
to see ROFLcopter in the OED any time soon.,,WinHelp documentation does not

the product‘s ability to move content from various formats into other
presentations. We found out more about this from Doris Holloway, who works
in Software Documentation Services for Jacksonville-based Fidelity National
Information Services.She described how her firm switched away from a
different product to WebWorks about two years ago. The company had a vast
library of documents in Microsoft Word formats that they needed to convert
to WinHelp.WebWorks supports WinHelp and other help systems. Holloway saidmet
their needs well, and continues to do with other projects. Her company works
continuously at releasing documentation on a monthly basis with WebWorks‘
help.One project Holloway cited, an 80 manual collection of documentation
for a mortgage-servicing client, required a transition from its legacy format
to WinHelp. Through the use of WebWorks her group completed the change without
difficulty.Our readers likely spend more time crafting documents for the Web
than for help systems. Publishers can use Word to create documents as they
always have. When it is time to repurpose that content for their websites,
or render it as a, WebWorks will be able to do so.We see a potential benefit
for WebWorks for the small to medium business market, particularly for firms
with a local scope of interest that may not have ventured to the Web yet.
We know the big Internet companies, Google, Yahoo, and Microsoft, all have
designs on the local search market.Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer confirmed to
us that theirservice and its supporting staff wants to bring in a high volume
of smaller clients to their self-service search advertising product.andeach
have made efforts to increase awareness of their search marketing products,
and their services, for local businesses. Those local companies that have
been in business likely use Microsoft Office if for no other reason than to
have Excel.But many of them probably have turned to Word to create documents
of all kinds for their businesses. Those entrepreneurs have a passing
familiarity with Word, and would likely see it as a tool to assist with their
Web aspirations.That is where WebWorks can. A business with product sales
literature and documented instructions all in Word could use WebWorks to
export the sales information to the Web, and instructions to PDF files.Each
type of document flows online and becomes usable on a website by its visitors.
This looks like the way WebWorks can make the Web work for the growing local
business online market.—,Tag:Add to|||Bookmark WebProNews:David Utter is a
staff writer for WebProNews covering technology and business.,,The term has
become so common that most people don’t know that “blog”
is a condensed version of “weblog.” It is not a new form of
communication, by any means. People have been blogging since man began
painting on cave walls, really; it’s just that the tools have changed
and the definitions of writing styles have evolved a bit (but just a bit).
When the Internet was still without its graphic interface, the World Wide
Web, there were the bulletin boards and file-sharing services that allowed
the distribution of text files.Even though the Internet traces its roots way
back past Al Gore to the DARPANet (Defense Advanced Research Projects
Administration) in 1969, not every article in that era was a description of
biological weapons or a flight-simulator log. People would rant, discuss,
argue and hold forth on any number of topics. The term weblog seems to have
started, some folks say, with one Jorn Barger, who would “surf the
net” (nothis phrase) and keep a log of what he found interesting, then
comment on some of it. As words have a way of doing, “weblog”
became “blog” and now they’re everywhere, and everyone has
one.Why don’tyouhave a blog?The fact that there are so many blogs is
perhaps the most compelling reason that your company should have one. It is
no longer noteworthy to have a blog; today people will wonder why
youdon’thave one. You probably know a lot of reasons why you should
have one for your firm, whether your business is plastic extrusion, audio
engineering, IT consulting, or anything really. What you need to focus on
are all the benefits you are forgoing bynothaving a blog that represents your
product, service or organization.One immediate benefit is that you are
validated as being up to date, a 21st century cybercitizen. If no one knows
a thing about your firm except that you have a blog, there is a lot that can
be surmised from that one fact. It signifies being computer literate,
technology savvy, thorough, and communicative. As mentioned before, it seems
odd now when companies don’t have a blog. It was well over a decade
ago that having a Web site became an absolute must for businesses, and for
a time it wasde rigueurfor individuals, as well. Now, folks can have a blog
instead of a Web site and maintain just about the same level of “cool
factor”—but you, as a businessperson, need both.Quick
connections, extended reachUp-to-the-minute information is no longer good
enough. Things change by the second, which is why texting and Twitter have
become parts of the communications toolkit, too. A sense of immediacy, the
need for updates on a continuous basis, has driven the development of these
technologies. However, these are bandwidth-limited and one-dimensional. A
blog, on the other hand, has most of the benefits of your Web site—it
can carry text, display images, stream media and link to other
destinations—but is easier to manage and update. You can make changes
