Social Business Strategy DNA [Infographic]

by · September 13, 2013

This infographic was inspired by “The Seven Success Factors of Social Business Strategy“, an e-book co-written by Brian Solis and Charlene Li from the Altimeter Group.

Using a blend of research and real world client data, Solis and Li have established a social business strategy DNA – a set of strategic characteristics that are common among successful social organizations.

The book highlights seven success factors, including social business best practices, pitfalls, and practical exercises to help guide you – all in an easy to consume format (~100 pages).

Does your organization have a social business strategy in place? Which of the seven success factors below are proving to be the most challenging? The comments are yours.


A Quick Primer on Social Business Strategy

by · July 20, 2013

Charlene Li and Brian Solis have penned a nice e-book that can help you better understand what a social business strategy is and judge whether or not your social efforts are, in fact, strategically focused. With the Altimeter Group’s normal quality of basing their assertions in research and case studies, The Seven Success Factors of Social Business Strategy outlines what you need to have for a solid strategic approach. It’s a nominal fee e-book (less than $4 for Kindle or Nook) and well worth the time and dollars invested. At just 100 pages, it won’t be a lot of sacrifice to learn a bit.

When Shawn Morton, Richard McInnis and I got on the elevator last night with Robert Scoble and Rocky Barbanica, Smorty very eloquently pointed out we needed to account for daylight savings time and spring forward. You could see the last threads of enthusiasm sputtering out of Scoble’s body. The guy was exhausted and that additional hour of sleep would have done us all good.
