Edition 61 - Influence Marketing
<p>Social Media Podcast No.61 is a slightly different format from our usual podcast but we think it's something you'll find interesting and useful for your social media marketing.</p> <p>Regular listeners will know that fatBuzz conduct a monthly New Media Breakfast in Glasgow and Edinburgh, Scotland. Each month we have around 120 people attending the breakfasts on various topics to do with new media and the most recent of these was about Influence Marketing.</p> <p>We thought this was such an important topic that we would share the presentation as a podcast with the Social Media Podcast listeners, we hope you enjoy it.</p> <p>THE TOPIC <br />As the volume of content increases on social media channels, the ability to reach your target audience will become increasingly difficult. One way to address this challenge is to implement an influence marketing strategy whereby you utilise key people of influence in and around your business.</p> <p>The podcast explores a range of ways that you may go about attracting key influencers, and even how you can make yourself a key person of influence. Here are some of the things discussed by Gordon White and Derek Howie during the podcast: <br />Who are potential key people of influence? <br />How do you attract influencers? <br />Should you pay influencers? <br />Knowing what will influence your customers <br />How do you measure a person's online influence? <br />How do you become a key influencer? <br />We don't intend to do this for all of the breakfast presentations but we will do it periodically when we think the topic and the presentation suits a podcast format. Please take a minute to let us know if you like it.</p><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/SocialMediaPodcast/~4/d0MrGWTPlIo" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Edition 60 - fatBuzz Uncovered - What we do, what we really, really do
<p>I started the first podcast of this year (No.50) promising to publish more podcast content in 2013 - I have failed to deliver my promise. Once again, pressure of work and our commitment to our clients has restricted the amount of podcasts we have been able to produce.</p> <p>In fact, this podcast started as a compromise but it has worked out remarkably well, I think it's a great insight into the workings of fatBuzz. Here we are on the 23rd December and everyone was too busy to stop for an hour to record a podcast so I decided to take the podcast to them individually. I toured the office, a bit like Martin Brundle in the pit lane before a race and I spoke to every member of staff (those not on holiday) and I think the result is probably more interesting than any Grand Prix race this year.</p> <p>2013 has been a momentous year for everyone in the office and this was a great opportunity to find out what each and every one of them do on a day-to-day basis. Along the way I also managed to quiz the various team members about the particular challenges, likes and highlights of their year at fatBuzz.</p> <p>It really is a most revealing insight into what we do for our clients every day of the year.</p> <p>I also manage to cover a few social media and web development topics with the guys as I chat my way across the astroturf - yes, our office is completely covered in astroturf and even has fun things like golf chipping nets for clients to take our 'find the net' challenge!</p> <p>It's not all social media and web design, I catch up with Brian, he heads up our accounts department and has had a busy year introducing new processes and procedures - none more taxing than the implementation of a new time sheet regime!!!</p> <p>Here are some of the general topics we discuss in addition to the revealing chat about the daily goings on at fatBuzz: <br />Design for Print and why its been much busier this year than in recent years <br />The emphasis on data driven social media and web development <br />Podcasting and the reasons for its revival during 2013 <br />Content plans - Why they are critical to what we do? <br />Face-to-face meetings - Why they are critical to what we do? <br />Facebook challenges - Why is the reach diminishing almost daily? <br />Facebook competitions <br />Facebook Stats - Are they really accurate? <br />Responsive and Flat Design web sites <br />Responsive Design HTML Email - Why do they continue to be a problem?</p> <p>We hope you enjoy the podcast, if you have any comments to make or topics you would like us to discuss, please leave them here on the blog or on our Facebook Page.</p><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/SocialMediaPodcast/~4/BEV_yxN9Z78" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Edition 54 - Meilee talks Kitchen Nightmares with Gordon and, the ABC of what not to do on Social Media
<p>We released Social Media Podcast No.53 four days ago to discuss the incredible story of Amy's Baking Company in Arizona. The story was originally brought to our attention by Meilee Anderson, a Social Media Podcast listener in Seattle who was kind enough to let us know about the Facebook meltdown as it was happening last Monday evening.</p> <p>If you have listened to Social Media Podcast No.53, you will know the Facebook likes had gone from around 1680 on Monday evening to 50,000 on Wednesday afternoon - they now have 91,352 on the page and it is continuing to grow.</p> <p>On podcast No.54 we are fortunate to be joined by Meilee Anderson from Seattle for a chat about the feeling towards Amy and Samy in the United States and where we think the story will go from here.</p> <p>There is a 'Grand re-opening' planned for Tuesday 21st May when the owners will host a press conference when they claim they will reveal what actually happened to their Facebook page. On the podcast, Meilee and Gordon discuss the planned re-opening and the appointment of a PR company to handle the crisis. We also explore the general feeling towards the couple and whether the situation is in any way recoverable for them.</p> <p>If you haven't seen the programme yet, you can watch it below, it really is an amazing episode that reveals just why this became such a big story.</p><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/SocialMediaPodcast/~4/c12pYiMtQ8w" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Edition 53 - Amy and Samy feel the heat in the kitchen - What are the customer service lessons?
<p>For some time now we have been planning to do a Social Media Podcast about the increasing importance of social media for customer service however, the recent incredible story of Amy's Baking Company Bakery Boutique and Bistro has prompted us to make the podcast now. We were alerted to the story on the evening that it started to unfold on Facebook by Meilee Anderson, a Social Media Podcast listener from Seattle - thank you Meilee for bringing this to our attention in the UK.</p> <p>Because Meilee contacted us early on we were able to see much of the story unfold and when we first looked at the Facebook page it had around 1680 likes; we actually did a screen grab at 1802 likes and now, 48 hours later, the page has 62,067 likes. During the podcast recording earlier today the total went form around 48,000 to 50,109.</p> <p> <br />Click to view full size <br />Normally growth like this is good news but not for Amy and Samy, the owners of Amy's Baking Company Bakery Boutique and Bistro, this is a genuine kitchen disaster that even Gordon Ramsay couldn't have predicted. In fact, Gordon Ramsay was instrumental in flaming the fire that very quickly got out of control.</p> <p>In the podcast we discuss this monumental kitchen nightmare and explore what went wrong, what is continuing to go wrong and whether the situation is in any way recoverable - listen to our opinion and feel free to leave your own comments here on the blog.</p> <p>Having examined the issue, we then go on to explore the wider issue of customer service in a social media environment. We look at the sharp increase in customer service enquiries on social media platforms and the willingness of consumers to commit their enquiries, complaints, and compliment to public platforms. </p> <p>Many organisations are not fully prepared for dealing with customer service issues on social media platforms; there is a tendency to leave it to the marketing team rather than hand it over the customer service experts. We discuss what should happen and what action organisations need to take if they are to successfully deal with customer service issues online.</p> <p>Some of the things we discuss in this podcast include: <br />Amy's Baking Company Baker and Boutique <br />Velocity Digital - Mike McGrail's blog post on the Amy and Samy Facebook meltdown <br />Who should respond? - Marketing Department or Customer Service Department <br />The blurring lines between marketing and customer service <br />Virgin's recent Facebook problems <br />Why you should embrace negative comments <br />The Drum article about the cost of bad customer service <br />Zappos - An excellent model for online customer service; practicing what their core values preach <br />Humour - Can you defuse a situation with humour?</p><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/SocialMediaPodcast/~4/0On65Wvyxi8" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Edition 52 - Is Facebook becoming anti-social?
<p>We're delighted to be back with an almost full team on Social Media Podcast 52, We have, Gordon White, Kyle Murdoch, Derek Howie, Joanna Robb and Malcolm White all taking part in some lively debate and good hearted banter around the world of social media. Unfortunately, Iain Murray wasn't able to join the recording session, hopefully he'll make it back for the next one.</p> <p>It may also be a first for the Social Media Podcast that we managed to keep the chat to under an hour but, riveting none-the-less!</p> <p>One thing we must apologies for is the hissing sound in the background of some of this recording; we were attempting to try out a new Blue Tiki USB Microphone while simultaneously recording using our usual equipment, what we didn't realise was the Blue Tiki was causing some interference with our normal recorder. We've cleaned up the sound as best we can and hope it doesn't affect your enjoyment of the podcast too much. </p> <p>Even though we got this recorded in record time we did manage to squeeze in lots of chat and hopefully some interesting information. Derek begins by updating us on the topic of the last podcast about kids using social media before we move on to a range of interesting subjects, here are some of the things we talk about:</p> <p>We explore lots of things including: <br />The recent changes on Facebook and a drive to raise revenue <br />Facebook's lack of transparency about future features - is this good for brands? <br />The new Facebook App <br />The apparent increase of video content being shared on Facebook <br />Tweetdeck- Is it on its last legs? <br />Tablets - Are they on their last legs - Gordon suspects they could be! <br />iTunes, and in particular, podcasting gaining in popularity <br />Football clubs are going global with social media <br />Why footballers need much better training <br />Is there such a thing as a social media fail? <br />YouTube gets a Norwegian footballer in on the game <br />As You Like It Holidays use social media to recruit ambassadors <br />Jet2 Party Plane promotion <br />Why KLM fly around airports doing kind acts <br />Jennifer Holloway's new book is published - Personal Branding for Brits <br />Are Apps on the wane? <br />Adobe Creative Cloud has a silver lining <br />We hope you enjoy the podcast, if you have any comments to make or topics you would like us to discuss please leave them here on the blog or on our Facebook Page.</p><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/SocialMediaPodcast/~4/dZBDMb6TUbs" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Edition 51 - Should kids be taught and allowed to use social media?
<p>If you have been following the fatBuzz blog or keeping up-to-date with us on Facebook and Twitter, you will have no doubt noticed that there has been a lot of discussion recently around Internet safety and the increasing prevalence of underage social media use.</p> <p>So, for Social Media Podcast 51, we decided to take it one step further and find out what education professionals think of social media and discover what exactly is being done to teach social media in Scottish schools.</p> <p>fatBuzz's Derek Howie and Malcolm White visited EdICT Training's offices to discuss this contentious issue with Miriam Duffin, Pre-12 Contract Manager at EdICT Training, Laura McLean, headteacher of St Timothy's Primary School and John McGuirk, depute headteacher of St Timothy's Primary School.</p> <p>Podcast No. 51 is packed with in-depth, informative conversation -and although it's an unusual line-up - there's the normal banter and light hearted fun you've come to expect when the Social Media Podcast team get together.</p> <p>We discuss a whole range of issues related to social media, education, and Internet privacy, including: <br />Privacy - Are children aware of online privacy? <br />Age Limit - What age should children be allowed to use social media? Are children putting themselves at risk by pretending they are older online? <br />Education, education, education - Should social media be taught as a core module as part of our curriculum? <br />Schools are teaching about the dangers of social media - but is there enough focus on how powerful social media can be? <br />Is it time for a change of direction? Focus on the positives on social media rather than the negatives? <br />Who should be teaching social media? Should it primarily be teachers or parents? <br />Listen - Do we need to listen to children's opinions more? <br />'Digital native' - Is this commonly used term a myth? <br />Cyber bullying - is it a serious problem? <br />Does social interaction limit personal interaction? <br />During the podcast, Laura asked if we would be willing to record a podcast with the St Timothy's Primary School pupils to discuss social media and shared learning, so watch out, that just might be Social Media Podcast 52!</p> <p>This is a very informative podcast well worth listening to if you have young children or relatives, or simply if you are interested in social media and Internet safety.</p> <p>We hope you enjoy the podcast. If you have any comments to make or topics you would like us to discuss in the future, please leave them here on the blog, or on our Facebook Page. <br />We hope you enjoy the podcast, if you have any comments to make or topics you would like us to discuss please leave them here on the blog or on our Facebook Page.</p><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/SocialMediaPodcast/~4/huFSL21q8r0" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Edition 50 - Public, but not in the public domain...Digital Copyright explained
<p>DIGITAL COPYRIGHT</p> <p>In this edition Gordon White, Managing Director at fatBuzz Ltd, has a really interesting discussion with Austin Flynn, Partner at Morton Fraser and Sam Price, Associate at Morton Fraser. I caught up with them in their Edinburgh office to discuss the use of images online and to find out a bit about Creative Commons Licenses.</p> <p>Many people wrongly assume that if an image, video or music file is made public on the Internet it's in the public domain, Austin and Sam explain why this is not the case. The discussion explores some of the myths and mistakes that people make when using images found on-line. They also clarify the different types of Creative Commons Licenses and the restrictions that can apply even when you're buying images from photo libraries.</p> <p>This is a very informative podcast well worth listening to if you every use images in your content.</p><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/SocialMediaPodcast/~4/SNTIz5CncqA" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Edition 44 - The 'P' Edition - Facebook Pages, Pinterest, Posterous, PeerIndex, Podcasts, iPad3 and IPOs
<p>The latest Social Media Podcast is now available for download with the usual banter and light hearted chat about all things social media. Taking part in Social Media podcast Episode 44 we have Gordon White, Kyle Murdoch, Kirsty Hunter, and Iain Murray.</p> <p>One common theme seemed to be the letter "P" on this podcast - Pinterest, Pin-It and, Pages were just some of the topics. I must confess immediately that I learned something since we recorded this podcast; when discussing Twitter's recent acquisition, Iain talked about "Posterious" which I questioned on the podcast thinking it should be "Posterus", which I've since found out could be from the Latin posterus 'following'. In fact, we were both wrong; the name is Posterous. Perhaps our friendly expert Linguist, Sally Goetsch can shed some light on what the name might mean?</p> <p>We also discuss the launch of the new iPad 3 (the podcast was recorded the same day as the UK launch) and we ask why their didn't seem to be the usual buying frenzy surrounding this release. In fact, we ask if the Glasgow Apple Store really needed the crowd barriers that were neatly stacked outside the shop which was well stocked with the new iPad even at 3pm on launch day.</p> <p>The good news is that we managed to keep this podcast under one hour but, we still manage to cram in lots of chat from the world of social media including: <br />The iPad3 - Iain and I managed to sneak a look at the latest offering from Apple just before we recorded the podcast. We also discuss the fact that there didn't appear to be the same buying frenzy this time around. <br />Unfortunately, Tesco don't honour online errors in the same way that Zappos did last year <br />ClikThis App <br />Still no natve Android Apps for DIGG or Pinterest <br />Posterous - we discuss the sale to Twitter, even if we do get the name wrong! <br />Facebook's IPO - Is it already reshaping Facebook. We also mention how the disclosures are starting to filter through with recent acknowledgements that the number of unique users could have been overstated by 40 million and, the large number of pending law suits against them. <br />Facebook Timeline for Pages - the new Page layout and how that will affect the way some organisations operate their business pages <br />fatBuzz's new "Infographic" page on Facebook <br />Steve Jobs doll, we get a comprehensive answer courtesy of the Morton Fraser Podcast on Image Rights <br />Pinterest - Is it a 'girly' tool and what's making it so popular at the moment. We also discuss the various copyright issues that are emerging around Pinterest <br />Influence measurements platforms like Klout - how accurate are they? We look at various platforms such as: TweetReach, PeerIndex, Klout, Tweetstats, Crowd Booster, Twenty Feet and, My Web Career <br />Social Media Monitoring tools - are they overpriced? <br />ROI - will it become less of an issue for organisations? <br />Scheduled Tweets - good or bad practice? Also, see Jennifer Holloways guest blog on this topic <br />Kony2012 - Is it all it appears to be? Most of our team didn't really trust the video. <br />Consumption - How often do you watch 100% of a video or, read 100% of an article or blog post? <br />Tim Barlow from Attacat asks, "Are bloggers who charge contributors for guest posts right to do so? Is there better way to monitise a blog?" We would like to discuss this in greater detail on Podcast 45 so, if you have an opinion please get in touch via the comments below. Or, perhaps you would be willing to come on the podcast and discuss it. Thank you to Tim for the suggestion. <br />We hope you enjoy the podcast, if you have any comments to make or topics you would like us to discuss please leave them here on the blog or on our Facebook Page.</p><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/SocialMediaPodcast/~4/eLqPytCTYKw" height="1" width="1"/><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/SocialMediaPodcast/~4/3p2bFpFFe0U" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

<p>We are back after a short break during the holiday period, on Episode 38 we have Gordon White, half of birthday boy Kyle Murdoch, Kirsty Hunter and Iain Murray for some lively discussion and the usual measure of banter and disagreement!</p> <p>We start with a chat about Google+ - could this be something that Iain and Gordon agree on? - You need to listen to find out! We explore what Google+ is and who is it competing with and, is it one major social media platform too many?</p> <p>Facebook has also undergone some major changes since the last podcast so we look at what's new here and what we can expect in the near future. This discussion also questions how good, or bad, the big 4 (Facebook, Twitter, Linked-In and Google) are at actually communicating with their users - your thought son this would be much appreciated.</p> <p>Other topics we explore along the way include: <br />Social Media in the workplace - are attitudes changing? <br />Iain confesses he's finding weaknesses with Android <br />Apple's customer service - is it the best you can get? <br />Steve Jobs and his retirement - Can he be replaced? <br />What's next for Apple? <br />App Stores - Are there too many around? <br />Widgets vs Icons <br />Coca-Cola's Facebook Fan Page was not originally set up by Coca-Cola which leads us to chat about the difficulty brands are having with talking to their end users for the first time. <br />IKEA's new television advert and how it is part of a campaign that includes some very clever YouTube/Facebook promotion <br />QR Codes and their increasing popularity as predicted by Social Media Podcast 140 years ago!</p> <p>We also give a big thanks to CC Chapman for the fantastic video introduction for the last New Media Breakfast and also to Jennifer Holloway for the first of her guest posts on the fatBuzz Blog.</p> <p>Finally, we take a look at some Apps that have caught our eye including: Press Reader, News360, Nova, Optiscan, CatchNotes, Zinio and TouchNote.</p><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/SocialMediaPodcast/~4/jCxzbm7eIDU" height="1" width="1"/><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/SocialMediaPodcast/~4/p0Q5J5F3wMI" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Edition 37 - Facebook and other things...
<p>Let me say from the outset that we made a cardinal error with this podcast - Gordon White, Kyle Murdoch and Iain Murray all gathered to record this episode at the appointed time, sat down to discuss (very roughly) what we would talk about then discovered no one had brought the recorder! Fear not, fatBuzz usually find a fix for such problems and we actually recorded it via one of our large Sony cameras.</p> <p>The edition does tend to focus a lot of Facebook; largely because we had just completed three "Facebook for Business" New Media Breakfast in the preceding six days! In that period we had all attended the Entrepreneurial Exchange Conference at Gleneagles where much of the speaker's content was about the use of social media in their businesses.</p> <p>We also discuss the relevancy of your community and the need to develop a following that is relevant to your business and, the usefulness of Twitter and Facebook Lists.</p> <p>We talk about a couple of influential social media business people, Michelle Mone of Ultimo and Richard McKay of Richard McKay flooring.</p> <p>Other subjects include: <br />Tommy Sheridan blogging from jail (But now he isn't!!!) <br />Groupon's timing on going to the market <br />Glasgow's Great Deal and Edinburgh's Great Deal <br />Facebook Deals <br />Facebook Sponsored Stories <br />The diabolically bad Facebook Mobile Platforms <br />QR Codes - Mitch Joel's blog about how they can create a negative experience for a brand <br />Gaynor MacIntyre of MacIntyre's of Edinburgh and her QR Code <br />WAZE - An application for traffic management using Geo-Tagging and Twitter <br />Cloud Computing, Apple iCloud, DropBox, Google Cloud etc. <br />Two Boys Opera and the viral video - Can I be Your Friend? <br />Personal Branding Online with Jennifer Holloway <br />To book a 1to1 meeting with Jennifer email fiona@fatbuzz.com <br />Our new Social Media Podcast Facebook Page</p><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/SocialMediaPodcast/~4/m72Pnjv960w" height="1" width="1"/><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/SocialMediaPodcast/~4/exoVmsh8AbA" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Edition 36 - Sallie Goetsch...the boxing referee
<p>Social Media Podcast No.36 is slightly longer than the usual podcast but, well worth listening to. Following Social Media Podcast No.34 (The boxing edition), Sallie Goetsch contacted us about the stats Iain and I were using to argue the case about Andriod vs iOS, she was concerned that we were not comparing like for like so, we invited her to explain. In Social Media Podcast we enjoy some light hearted banter about the arguement and Sallie explains the difficulty with statistics and why we should beware who is presenting them.</p> <p>We also took the opportunity to have a conversation with Sallie about her work and some social media related issues, during the chat we discussed the following: <br />The power of podcasting as a communication tool <br />Sallie's forthcoming podcast workshop <br />Audioboo and other "simple" ways to podcast <br />The deterioration of the English language, bad grammar and people's fear of writing <br />I'm sure you'll find the conversation extremely interesting with a suitable balance of fun and serious commentary. Following the interview I also comment on something that Sallie does very well and others do very badly; deciding when something should be said off-line as opposed to on-line.</p> <p>To help you identify Sallie and myself, the voice in stereo is Sallie's and mine is in mono (basically becuase I'm stupid and didn't check the settings on the recording tool I downloaded minutes before Sallie and I recorded the podcast!!!) My apologies.</p> <p>The usual team of Kyle Murdoch, Iain Murray and myself (Gordon White) then go on to discuss a range of topics from the world of social media including the following: <br />Telstra's social media training progress <br />Social Media Policies - Link to examples on www.socialmediagovernance.com <br />The rising popularity of QR Codes (Quick Response Codes) and how fatBuzz use Kimtag as a single QR Code linked to all of our on-line places <br />Personal branding and the importance of your reputation online - Link to www.reputation.com <br />The forthcoming New Media Breakfast on Personal Branding with Jennifer Holloway <br />EBay Shops - Does a 100% positive feedback rating add to the sales value of your EBay store? <br />These are some of the main things we chat about dueing the podcast. In addition, we mention Spotify, iTunes, Amazon Cloud, LoveFilm, Audible.com and, Silverlight.</p> <p>We also refer to a very useful piece of research conducted by Buddy Media which is available as a pdf download on Mashable - Facebook Engagement Data</p> <p>Finally, we leave the podcast with an invitation to take a look at the latest marketing campaign from Range Rover for the new Ramge Rover Evoque. We intend to discuss this on the next podcast so, please take a moment to have a look and make a comment about it before we record Social Media Podcast 37.</p> <p>You can also follw the Social Media Podcast on Facebook now - visit and "Like" the new Social Media Podcast Facebook Page HERE.</p><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/SocialMediaPodcast/~4/VyPl9eyu5_I" height="1" width="1"/><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/SocialMediaPodcast/~4/fp0PXu99ihQ" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

During this chat we also look at other social media sites like Wayne's World and ask if any of these can really make any dent in the popularity of Facebook.</p> <p>On the App front, we look at BA's (British Airways) new App for Executive Club members and Tripit.</p> <p>As usual, the podcast is rounded off with an update about the New Media Breakfast when we bring you details of the next three breakfasts in Glasgow and Edinburgh.</p><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/SocialMediaPodcast/~4/zU4m7GzlmBs" height="1" width="1"/><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/SocialMediaPodcast/~4/44WO1ysVBIU" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>
