Responsive Email Design: Five Case Studies & An Infographic

Responsive Email Design: Five Case Studies & An Infographic | Business for small businesses | Scoop.it

Mobile email is a major challenge for businesses as studies have shown that as much as 50% of marketing messages are opened on mobile devices.

Obviously the precise figure varies drastically from company to company, so the need to optimise for mobile will be less important for some businesses. Even so, it’s an issue that all businesses will have to deal with at some point in the next year or so.

One option for dealing with mobile email is responsive design, which uses one set of code that renders an email differently when viewed on a desktop, tablet or smartphone...

A bit awkward!

- A large number of companies do not have any strategy in place for optimising email for mobile devices.

- To optimize, all you need is a few simple media queries in the code of an email

Embrace Social Media Or DIP
This post reminds me of The Great Social Customer Service Race Study. We guest posted the Software Advice study, a Twitter based study where virtually every major brand (save one) FAILED to respond. 

Think this post about favorability being down and Software Advice's study results are related? I do to, the study is on Atlantic BT's blog:

No but I can spell DEAD if they don't wake up here soon. Sticking ones head in the sand only makes it hard to hear. This SMobile revolution is going to happen whether brands decide to lead, follow or get out of the way :).M

Luca Brigada's curator insight, March 14, 2013 1:39 AM

An interesting article by James Carter is a dramatist, experience designer and producer about what is storytelling and its value:

 

"Transmedia is the art of sharing a narrative over multiple media platforms (print, online, stage, film, social networks), where unique content is delivered through each platform. For example, Fringe, the hit television show, used transmedia to expand its storyworld and reward its biggest fans. [...]"

Why Brands Must Embrace Visual Social Media in 2013 [infographics]

Why Brands Must Embrace Visual Social Media in 2013 [infographics] | Business for small businesses | Scoop.it

Two infographics provide data and tips to explain why brands must leverage visual social media in 2013 to stay relevant and grow.


Today, the marketing world is still hot on the social media marketing trail, but the trail has diverged. There are different paths with cheerleaders along the way no matter which path a marketer follows.


Ideally, marketers should find the path down the middle that marries all of the elements of social media marketing, but most are not there yet. Many of today’s marketers are still choosing a single path to focus on or jumping back and forth.

For example, those paths include the data and metrics focus, the storytelling focus, the visual focus, and more. This article hones in on the visual focus with the help of two great infographics that visually share the data and tell the story of visual storytelling...

Bart van Maanen's curator insight, January 8, 2013 2:34 AM

Leerzame infografiek over het gedrag van consumenten online en hoe (klein - middelgroot - groot) bedrijven daar mee omgaan. Het managen van social media is kennelijk nog steeds een kwestie.


Meest opvallende stijger is Instagram, dat door het mobiel delen van foto's deel uitmaakt van de grote visualisering van het web. Hoewel het moeilijk te geloven is met een upload volume van, naar verluidt, 72 uur video per minuut, las ik ook voorspellingen dat video dit jaar nog 'groter' gaat worden.

How to increase the visibility of your Facebook Page [infographic]

How to increase the visibility of your Facebook Page [infographic] | Business for small businesses | Scoop.it

Facebook is seen by many as the ultimate social media marketing platform to engage with your customers and prospects. Nearly 1 billion potential customers are using it, providing you with the means to reach and engage with all of them.

Promotional activities seem to center around a singular, focused social media marketing objective of increasing Facebook “likes”. Often all other social media and marketing strategies are ignored because of this obsession. The longer term tactics of content creation, optimising for search engines and building email lists are forgotten in the “liking” acquisition frenzy.

90 Percent of Small Business Use Social Media [infograhic]

90 Percent of Small Business Use Social Media [infograhic] | Business for small businesses | Scoop.it
A survey of 600 small business owners across the United States indicates that 90% are actively engaged in social networking sites and 74% perceive social networking as valuable — if not more valuable — than networking in-person.

 

When 42% of owners say that 25% of new customers discovered them through sites such as Facebook and Foursquare, it is crucial that your business is online and social.

But the news is not all merry, as 58% of surveyed owners said they struggle with promoting their Facebook pages — if they have a page at all.

The takeaway is clear. You need to be where your customers are. Forget what your competitors are doing, as their customers are different from your customers. You also need to integrate internet communications into your normal routine of business networking.
