Having another set of tools for my teachers to create their PIE Infographics is important.  Creating visual representations of learning is such a powerful learning for teachers and is a skill they can transfer to their classroom and for students to create in the classroom.

Why You Have Been Thinking of Social All Wrong - How Social Media Supports SEO

Why You Have Been Thinking of Social All Wrong - How Social Media Supports SEO | Big Brand Boost | Scoop.it
Social media was not intended to be a soapbox for businesses to talk about themselves. Consumers don't owe your brand anything. They don't have to share your content, they don't have to interact with posts and they certainly don't have to suggest your page to other people.

5 Steps For Optimizing Your LinkedIn Company Page

5 Steps For Optimizing Your LinkedIn Company Page | Big Brand Boost | Scoop.it

Search And Social Meets Content And Influence

 

On April 3, the New York Times reported that LinkedIn is one of many competitors vying for a piece of Google’s search traffic.With over 5.7 billion professionally oriented searches performed on the site last year, LinkedIn has made continued efforts to improve the search experience, adding new features like auto-complete, suggested searches, automated alerts and a smarter query intent algorithm.

 

Content marketing on LinkedIn puts you and your business in front of the people you want to see it. Just like with Google, there is a renewed focus on content at LinkedIn as the company strives to compete with other social networks.A great example of this is LinkedIn’s recent acquisition and integration of SlideShare, a service used for uploading and sharing presentations.

 

Add to this the launch of new products like LinkedIn Today, LinkedIn Influencers (where a hand-picked crew of 200 celebrity professionals present exclusive content), and Sponsored Updates (allowing brands to promote whitepapers and branded content), and marketers have a powerful platform that combines search and social and connects content with influencers.

6 Simple Elements That You Can Optimize for More Home Page Sign Ups | KISSmetrics

6 Simple Elements That You Can Optimize for More Home Page Sign Ups | KISSmetrics | Big Brand Boost | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article on KISSmetrics:
"Sure, generating more traffic for your website is always a good thing. But what if you could increase conversions on your site with just a few small tweaks? It could cost a lot less and take less time.
Below are six things we did that increased our sign-up rate by more than 75%.

1. Short Simple Headline:
Try making the headline shorter and more obvious. It’s always tempting to think people understand your website better than they really do.
You have only a few seconds to capture a visitor’s interest. Make a quick, bold statement so they will decide to hang around your site longer.

2. Images:
Yes, an image can say a lot about your website or product without having to use many words.
We put a bright, cheerful image of our software on the home page. It says a few things right away.

3. Social Proof:
There are a few types of social proof that work really well:
- Testimonials: Try not to use boring text from people no one knows. Try to use a picture of the person and link to their company.
- Tweets about your company: An easy way to show some more legitimate testimonials is to use tweets about your company/product.
- Case Studies: We offer a few short case studies with summaries about how people used TeamGantt for specific projects and the benefits they got from it.
- Press Coverage: Were you in The New York Times? Show it on your website! Present a nice quote from the article and the newspaper’s logo.
- Logos of Customers: Do you have some big name customers that will allow you to put their logos up on your website? This can establish some instant credibility with others.

4. Video:
There are a few different types of videos that may help improve the communication of your message. Maybe a video that walks visitors through your product and how it can be used. Or maybe an animated video that explains the problem your product solves. Consider hiring a company to create an explainer video.

5. Longer Home Page:
This definitely is worth trying. There really isn’t any way to know if a longer home page is better or worse than your existing one without running an A/B test.

6. Call to Action:
Don’t forget this one! You need to tell your visitors what to do. Should they download an eBook, sign up for a mailing list, start a free trial, or buy your product right now? Give them a friendly nudge to help guide them to the next step..."

Each element is analyzed with more information and examples. Read full original article here:
