Get ready to be judge!!!

I am so grateful, after hibernate about 2 years from any competition and 2014 came up with a new product with my teammate Dr. Siti Zuraida Maaruf. Initially, it’s started with an Aida intention to extend the use of her modul towards the community. I was suggested to converted it into “e-things” because it  easy to spread it out. This project took us a month to develop the system and establish the 1st version on 7th Nov 2014.

Bukan apa hibernate sbb sibuk sangat dengan PhD, so mmg kena tunggu product yang betul-betul ada potential. Win or lose is not the matter, tapi kalau boleh nak publish the best product that can benefit to others”.

In competition mode, as schedule ada MLAM AGM Meeting. So kena pergi meeting dulu. Prof Dr Mohamed Amin is the founder of this association.

The e-Modul in the application process to get an ISBN from National Library to protect the copyright and enable it to be downloaded safely.

“Payah jugak nak dapatkan ISBN ni puas turun naik but still in application process kena bersabar kalau nak hasilnya elok, walaupun e-book publication ini ada setengah-setengah kata weightage tak tinggi, tapi peduli apa orang nak cakap, better than never. To publish buku is not an easy…”

“Sebelum dapat award ini sambil berlawak cakap pd Siti Zuraida Maaruf dgn Roslinda Alias “Geng kalau dapat bronze pun dah okay, tapi kalau nak puas hati beli aluminium foil gold then kita balut dan gores….” Punya sakan diaorg gelak. Tp syukur kami mendapat yg lebih baik dari jangkaan. Hopefully, blog ini dapat dimanafaatkan dan ini adalah titik usaha utk memberikan yg terbaik selepas ini”

Empower Social Media to Put Yourself in Word Map

Social media is a platform whereas all information can be reach without limits, no boundaries and non-stop. Nowadays, I could say that social media can be faster than any printed medium. However, as an academician, we should grab this opportunity to put our academic contents in a wire and lets the learners access that at anywhere and anytime. Currently, there is a trend learners like to use any social media such twitter, facebook, instagram or others to update their interests and needs. So, i believe the academician should change the teaching style suit with needs. In this case, for example twitter, i have read the book entitled “The Power of Hashtag” that twiiter is the faster medium and the hashtag help the user to find any subject according the tagging given by anyone. The hashtag not only help a searching in one specific unit of interest but gather all the information related to the subject.

#1. Choose the right words

The hashtag isn’t meant to be used for every word in your post. The point of this little character is simply to organize content and make it easier to find. For example, if someone wants to find news about their favorite basketball team, they might search for #NBA, but they probably aren’t going to search #basket or #ball.

Using either of those terms is likely to pull up multiple results that aren’t even related to the sport they are looking for. Hashtags are typically very focused, meaning that simple and frequently used words don’t usually make the cut. But how do you know just what to say in order to send the most effective message? By testing.

#2. Test your message

Most brands that take advantage of this social media tool spend some time testing their hashtags. Even the White House media team tested 26 different possibilities before one of the President’s State of the Union addresses, eventually settling on the 7 most successful messages.

It will be important to test each social media platform you intend to use and see for yourself what resonates the best with your customers. In addition to testing, you can also search each social media website for hashtags and look for the most effective words.

That being said, it should be noted that each site has a vastly different user base and you will do better to target each market individually whenever possible.

#3. Don’t overdo it

Just because you can use more than one hashtag in a message doesn’t necessarily mean that you should. Most perusers of social media sites see an overabundance of hashtags as nothing more than spam. While they can be an incredibly effective marketing tool, you may do yourself a disservice if you use them too frequently.

Typically, you don’t want to use more than one or two hashtags per post, with one hashtag being the optimal choice. In addition, it will be important to avoid using them in every single post that you make, as social media users are wary of businesses trying too hard to promote themselves.

Use these organizational tools when it makes sense to use them and you’ll reap the rewards of a more engaged subscriber base.

#4. Create brand engagement

The true power of hashtagging is the ability to connect your brand with various popular and incredibly visible topics, which will drive new viewers to your social media presence, as well as give you the opportunity to engage with them. When well-crafted and used sparingly, hashtags can help increase your visibility and even improve customer relations. The more comfortable your followers feel with your brand, the more likely they will be to attempt interacting with you via social media.

You definitely don’t want to ignore them, but you don’t necessarily want to use hashtags while conversing with your followers either. As noted above, you don’t necessarily need to use a hashtag in every post, but it’s particularly important to remember that you should not use them while responding to someone . Whether it’s a retweet or a reply, avoid plugging these characters in when they are not needed.

Hashtagging in a nutshell

Well, there you have it. If you keep these simple concepts in mind, you are sure to see social media marketing success.

Effective communication is a must when it comes to brand management, but it should be noted that the overuse of hashtags can actually lead to fewer interactions overall. Using hashtags sparingly (no more than 1 or 2 per post) and wisely has shown to be an effective means of marketing for several brands and companies. Join the revolution today and start sending the right message with the power of the hashtag!

Optimize Your Posts on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and More

Creating great content isn’t enough.

If you want people to share it, you must consider the dynamics of each of your social networks and optimize your posts for each. This will maximize sharing and help you build your brand, engage with your target customers, create brand ambassadors, and ultimately improve lead acquisition and sales. Failing to polish your posts means that your content won’t be shared as much, limiting your ability to grow your audience.

There are many tricks of the trade, such as including a shortened URL in your LinkedIn posts, using mobile-friendly images on Facebook, and applying the rule of thirds on Instagram. Employing these tactics will help your social media marketing efforts pay off.
