Since I am deaf and am unable to hear anything at all — the visual world is even more intense to me. I want to capture and show my photographic visions as a deaf person.

Deanna Dahlsad's curator insight, September 5, 2013 4:14 AM

I love that this acknowledges how social media really works:


Salakas says he used sponsored posts and banner advertising to spread the word on his party-hire company, but they were ineffective, so now, he says, he sticks to posting thoughts, videos and photos to encourage "likes" and "shares" and spread his brand across the social media platform.


...Trying to predict what will fly and what will bomb however, is the hard part, he says.


“You can post something and think it's awesome and will go viral, and it doesn't even rate. Then you post something like a wine glass upside down with a candle on the top of it with a funny caption, and you get over 100 "shares". It surprises me all the time.”

People often ask Mr Kirkland how he got to where he is today: an irrelevant question, he said. 'Whatever I did in 1960, half a century ago, I couldn't do that today and enter the field,' he admitted. 

'The field has changed so much, you have to adapt to the times whatever you're doing. That's the reality of life, you have to be a different person today than you had to be then.'

The 21 New Rules of Content Marketing [INFOGRAPHIC]

The 21 New Rules of Content Marketing [INFOGRAPHIC] | Artdictive Habits : Sustainable Lifestyle | Scoop.it

"In this new world of Internet marketing, it's not about being "optimized," but being "easy to find." That sounds like a subtle difference, but it couldn't be more profound.

 

One has to do with page tags, keywords, and trying to manipulate incoming links; the other is about generating interesting ideas, starting discussions, and being a prominent voice in your market or industry. It's the difference between screaming nonsense through a microphone and having journalists come to you for an expert opinion.

 

This infographic sets out the 21 NEW rules of content marketing that every modern marketer should know. If you want to maintain a high search engine ranking and use content to keep targeted buyers coming to you, this is information you can't afford to skip".
