How to Create an Infographic in Under an Hour [+10 Free Templates] | Business and Marketing |

Wouldn't it be great if creating infographics was just as simple as writing regular ole text-based blog posts? Unfortunately, the reality is that making visual content like this usually takes a lot more time, effort, and let's face it -- skill -- than the written word. 


Usually.But considering the popularity and effectiveness of visual content in marketing today, you can't just afford to throw in the towel. That's why we decided to take all the pain and suffering out of infographic creation. 


Seriously -- don't throw in the towel just yet. You, too, can create professional-looking, high-quality infographics ... quickly! And I'm going to prove it. First things first ...

The Facebook Conundrum - Does Facebook Make Money?

The Facebook Conundrum - Does Facebook Make Money? | Business and Marketing |

The Facebook ROI Mystery
This post combines several recent infographics one from my friend Bill Ross  @LinchpinSEO and another from @JeffBullas to ask a simple yet complex question. Does Facebook make money. 

I hate answering questions in the negative, but I can't see other way to answer this one. I called on a piece I wrote over a year ago - Social Media Marketing The Most Important ROI ( to answer in the negative. 

What if you DON'T create ROI losing social media marketing? The answer to that question is PAIN and then more PAIN. Even if you've failed 100 times my advice is to fail 100 more times, and to reframe your #SMM discussion. 

Ways to Reframe Your SMM ROI Thinking

Don't require same ROI from Social as from everything else (go easier).Don't spend less than 10% of your marketing budget on social media.Be generous with conversion funnel attribution (very generous). Don't look for Stimulus - Response curves in social. Invest in social for our FUTURE even if you FAIL now. Failing just means you need to test more. Contests and Games, Games and Contests

Facebook and Social Media Marketing may be a mystery wrapped in an enigma, but stay the course. Keep at it even if it means failiing miserably 100 more times :).

This a great list, but, perfect?  I don't know about that :)  Stories aren't a magic bullet. However, applying these elements and telling the right story+right time+right audience... can make an emotional connection with your audience that impacts your business.
