The key to digital communication overload

Often I’m hearing companies saying that they understand the importance of good online interactions with people. But many times the executive team looks at digital marketing, just as items on a checklist. Instead of looking at what connection is created with a digital asset, they only focus on the asset itself.

It’s a big mistake, and you and I are smarter. Therefore, let’s not misplace your focus because it can easily damage your overall brand reputation.

Now, what’s the goal of your digital communication?

Digital communication needs to provide a story that people are able to consume, understand and apply. Make the story more human and you will stand out.

Experts predict that social advertisement budgets will double in the next five years, digital communication will become saturated. Meaning the need for strong and concise digital content will be at an all-time high. A constant focus on the quality of your digital communication is key.

How Much Do Social Scores Matter To You Today?

Not that I am getting obsessed with my Klout score after I read Mark Schaefer’s new book Return On Influence (Affiliate link) but I thought to do some more research through my Google reader. I wanted to know who else in the blogosphere is talking about social scores.

As Mark Schaefer shows in his book how Audi uses social influencers to attract new customers. Audi invited top design, technology, and luxury influencers to test drive the new 2011 Audi A8 at targeted events and a few lucky winners were even awarded all-expense-paid weekend trips with the car. How does that sound to you?;-)

Bottom line is as I quote from Mark’s book:

For all the faults, social scoring systems represent a targeted, high-potential, and relatively low-cost way to create buzz about products, services, and brands through powerful niche influencer. That is revolutionary.

Many other bloggers write these days about social profiling too.

What is your experience with social scores? Are you getting obsessed with your Klout score? Do you think a higher social scoring is going to get you a better job?

I am very curious to know.
