Video Content rarely goes viral. Understanding the basic elements of virality can help you produce your video in ways that encourage virality, but cannot determine it.

Darren M Jorgensen's insight:

This article gives a strong understanding of the qualities that make certain videos go viral. Then it goes on to argue the the competent content producer should strive for killer content rather than viral content. Which one brings in the money?

We are going to see a lot of these kinds of trends analysis and I'm interested in them all since you never know who will turn over a rock and find a diamond.

You're so right, Marty. I like these kinds of predictions a lot, too. I like thinking about the range of possibilities that the future might have in store for us. And I especially like to think to myself, "No Way will THAT Happen!"

I found this while catching up on Jeff Bulla's blog - certainly one of the greatest blogs available for anyone interested in Social Media. This entry focuses on using social media in the classroom, but is very interesting read for anyone into social media.  From the blog:  "This year, I've been able to take my class from our rural school in southeast Idaho around the world for free. Without leaving the confines of our brick and mortar classroom, social media has enabled us to travel the globe."

Web Presence Optimization: Evolving the view of online success | MarketingSherpa Blog | Best Business Practices in a Fractured Communications Landscape | Scoop.it
As prospective buyers look to third parties for information, traditionally siloed disciplines must work together to maximize an organization's Web presence.
Darren M Jorgensen's insight:

On 26 Nov 2012, I blogged about this great WPO Framework that KC Associates had produced and was currently working with. I had downloaded their Whitepaper and was very impressed with their working model and theoretical construction - not to mention the philosophy that their application methodology was based on. Imagine my surprise, then, when I found out that this same company was featured in MarketingSherpa's weekly newletter! Here's the article in the newsletter, and my original blog entry is below.~darren.

I've been shifting certain blog postings from my old blog to my newly designed, Wordpress.com blog. Much more freedom, many more plugins - why didn't I do this sooner?

 

Anyway, in this blog entry I wrote about the advanced work that KC Associates was doing in the field of Web Presence Optimization (WPO). Funny how things happen. A week after I blogged about this new Framework from KCA they were featured in MarketingSherpa's weekly newsletter!

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, December 19, 2012 4:34 AM

I like the rambling journey this article takes you on. Branding is about telling a meme-y story (lol). Memes are transferable stories. Since brands must be transferable marketing teams need to tell transferable stories. 

This article argues and I agree, vision is the critical element in creating transferable stories. Without vision you tell the same story over and over, a story no one interacts with or cares about. This article helps you define stories with vision, define your brand.
