30 Can't Miss Data Visualization Blogs | Visual Loop | BI Revolution |

As data visualization expands its reach – through the rise of Massive Online Courses, the countless events and, most significantly, the interconnection between different disciplines and knowledge fields that produce inspiring works and innovative projects -, it’s only natural that the number of folks writing about it keeps rising.

There are literally hundreds of interesting blogs out there, covering all the aspects surrounding the production of quality, effective data visualizations.

Visit the link to find a collection of resources and interesting projects that give a pretty good idea of how vast and rich the data visualization community is...

Data visualization is now critical. My favorite of those blogs are Storytelling with data, and Ilovecharts (quite funny although not necessarily business related)

We can learn data visualization news from other bloggers.

Powerful infographic!

Daniel Jimenez Zulic's curator insight, June 5, 2013 8:19 AM
Muy interesante, y me parece genial que aparezcan las energias renovables en el grafico, aunque a mi juicio el nivel de impacto seria deseable fuera mayor de aqui al 2025.
Alfredo Corell's curator insight, June 6, 2013 8:20 AM

Quizás sería esperable que las Renovables tuviesen más impacto en los próximos 12 años.

Branding In A Digital Age: You’re Spending Money in the Wrong Places

Branding In A Digital Age: You’re Spending Money in the Wrong Places | BI Revolution |

David Edelman for McKinsey

David's (@davidedelman) post on HBR is still my favorite discussion of the new conversion funnel. Turns out the new "funnel" is more filter than funnel. Edelman explains how buyers move through cycles.

Each cycle tightens (or loosens) loyalty and buying intention. The other thing Edleman's article got SO RIGHT is how the "funnel" doesn't end with a purchase. I love how David explains how purchases begin a new and almost more important buying phase - advocacy.

Most marketers build campaigns to achieve the sale. David points out that kind of thinking is old school and dangerous. In a connected and social time a sale should be the beginning of a much deeper and more rewarding relationship (for both parties). Think of conversion as a series of loops that don't END as much as intensify.

Also read David's Aligning With The Consumer Decision Journey (CDJ) to get the full force of these important ideas:

Regular readers of my content will recognize another proof in David's work. Faith Popcorn's, "People don't BUY brands they JOIN them," has never felt more true. David's CDJ illustration (above) shows purchase = advocacy.

As Internet marketers we need help. No one climbs our new marketing Everest alone. We need the advocacy of others in the form of links, likes and shares. Even if you HAD enough money to force your products and ideas on others, and no one does anymore, spending that kind of money would NEVER be called for or pay for itself.

Advoacy comes when your customers "join" your brand and continue Edelman's loop. String enough of those "magic loops" together and you win :).
