Gone are the days of the Mad Men of Madison Avenue. Sad as it is, not only is the midday drinking and smoking gone for good (mostly anyway), but the ads of old are gone as well. Advertising in 1950, 1960, and beyond, was about a cheesy, geo-blanketed, retail-heavy message. And that is where the paradigm shift comes into play. Smart advertisers are now focusing on a different form of advertising. And it looks a lot like its marketing brother from another mother, content marketing.

Welcome to 2015, and a whole new era in social media marketing on Facebook: the "post promotional post" era. That's because, beginning this month, Facebook will be instituting new content and volume controls for organic posts that are promotional in nature. This includes posts that push users to purchase a product or install an app, reuse the exact same content from ads, or impel people to enter promotions or sweepstakes without context. Facebook is making these modifications in response to results of a survey of its users who reported being unhappy with the amount of promotional posts infiltrating their News Feeds.

IF YOU'RE A SENIOR MARKETER, YOU'RE PROBABLY TIRED OF HEARING about anything related to content strategy—multichannel, omnichannel, or otherwise. Chances are good that you may have even been asked about this by a C-level manager—it's become pervasive. As with other digital marketing tactics that have roared onto the scene during the past decade, the content marketing ecosystem has mushroomed in only a couple of years, and the result is more confusion than clarification, with hundreds of vendors vying for your business.

This online content thing is not as hard as everyone thinks. Don't get me wrong...it can, at times, be tough. Tough to get traffic. But I recently learned a universal law from my last post: the more you give, the more you get. In that last column, "8 Things I Learned from Analyzing My Tweets", I learned this incredibly valuable lesson. By simply relaying to the audience what I learned from a basic Twitter analysis (which provided tactical value and actionable content), I was rewarded with over 900 shares. More plainly put, I took the modest information from my head and shared it with an audience hungry for tips and tricks.

Sentiment analysis is like social media therapy. We attempt to learn how our audience feels about us-what are the complaints, issues, suggestions, and praise? We can also learn what they think of our competition, our industry, and our employees. Perhaps the most valuable data in sentiment analysis is what we don't find. It is alarming if your marketing is trying to highlight price, but there's no mention of it online. That indicates the need for a significant reassessment of your efforts. Sentiment analysis also becomes a powerful benchmark of your marketing programs as you can track the change in overall sentiment over time.
