Study: What Motivates Facebook Users to Share Content

Study: What Motivates Facebook Users to Share Content | Business Support | Scoop.it

What motivates people to share content? This is one of the key questions all content marketers would love to understand more about. And while sharing, in itself, is rarely the end goal, shares do help spread the message and connect your content with a wider audience.


To get a better understanding of what motivates content shares, content strategy group Fractl has conducted a study of what motivates Facebook users, specifically, to share a post.


Fractl surveyed more than 2000 Facebook users to gain insight into what inspires them to click Like or Share on The Social Network. Among their key findings, Fractl's researchers found that: 


- Only 1 out of 10 respondents noted that their primary reason for sharing content was to educate their network, though more than half (55%) noted they do want to share useful content


- Women are 26% more likely to share content more than once a day compared to men, while Baby Boomers are 19% more likely to share more than once per day than any other generation


- 40% of respondents admitted to sharing content to make themselves look good. 


- Users with larger networks (over 500 friends) are 7% more likely to share content that maintains a certain image of themselves....

How Accelerated Mobile Pages Can Transform Your SEO

How Accelerated Mobile Pages Can Transform Your SEO | Business Support | Scoop.it
It happens all the time: One moment you’re scrolling through Facebook or Twitter, you see an article headline that catches your eye, and you tap on the link to read more. Then, you wait. Still waiting three seconds later? Time to move on. Google reports that more than 40 percent of users will abandon a website that takes more than three seconds to load.

Mobile internet users expect a web browsing experience that’s akin to what we get on our computers. But even with faster Wi-Fi connections and cellular data networks, reading on the mobile web can still be a painfully slow and frustrating experience. The Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) Project is an open source initiative that’s putting an end to this frustration. The project’s mission is simple: empower publishers with the tools they need to create optimized content that loads instantly, everywhere.

How I Went From Industry Outsider to Expert in 2 Years | Business Support | Scoop.it
Learn about your industry and get caught up with current trends.

First things first, you need to do a little homework about your specific industry. Review some back copies of trade magazines and articles from industry leaders and influencers. Going over these articles and editorials can help you catch up to speed and see what's currently being discussed, as well as help you form your own opinion.

 

Personally, websites like PYMNTS.com and Tom Noyes' Star Point blog have both been incredible assets for me. Without sources like those, I wouldn't have obtained as much as information as I have, along with being updates on the latest payments trends.

Why video needs to be part of your paid advertising strategy

Why video needs to be part of your paid advertising strategy | Business Support | Scoop.it

Recently, I’ve been thinking about the importance of online video content. People are nowconsuming more videos, and it makes up a huge portion of online content. A post from Convert With Content spells out this growth, citing several stats, including:


- 74 percent of all Internet traffic will be video by 2017.


- Video is shared more than any other kind of content.


- YouTube is the second-largest search engine in the world.


- Around 8,333 Vine videos are shared each minute.


- 33 percent of tablet owners watch about an hour of video on their devices every day.


- Video in email can boost open rates by 20 percent and increase click-through rates two to three times.


Video is becoming more and more relevant — so why not come up with some paid strategies now? In this article, I’ll suggest ways to incorporate video strategies into your online advertising programs. I’ll cover Google in particular, but similar ideas can be implemented in other channels....

An Introduction To 360° Video For Social Media Marketers

An Introduction To 360° Video For Social Media Marketers | Business Support | Scoop.it
Virtual reality has been an especially hot topic ever since the Oculus Rift first made headlines, and it looks poised to finally swing into full gear this year. Despite some delays, the ultra-hyped Rift has finally started to make its way into consumer’s hands.

Emerging alongside it are relatively affordable consumer gadgets such as the Samsung Gear VR, which make virtual reality more accessible than ever. It seems the virtual dreams of the 90’s are finally being realized and there’s no doubt the marketing world is paying close attention.

To be clear, this article is not strictly about virtual reality. Instead, we’re going to look at VR’s little brother, 360° video. Despite what some will have you believe, there are important distinctions to be made between the two. Still, they certainly fall into the same category of immersive, just-like-being-there experiences.

(From the article): For marketers, 360° video represents yet another opportunity to connect with their audience in a more intimate way. As of now, the area is still relatively unexplored and creative new ideas are waiting to come to fruition. It’s an exciting time to be a marketer! Plus, this is just a first step towards true virtual reality. It’s likely that we’ll start seeing completely VR, interactive marketing as the tech becomes more and more widespread. And I, for one, can’t wait.

How To Build Landing Pages That Convert

How To Build Landing Pages That Convert | Business Support | Scoop.it
Landing pages are important for two reasons – they motivate people to click further into the sales funnel and they capture user data so you can connect with prospects and create qualified leads. Though anyone can create a landing page, not everyone can do it well.

Landing pages are an indispensable part of an inbound marketing strategy. Approximately 96% of the people who arrive at your website are not ready to buy just yet – so a targeted landing page is essential to building a positive experience and helping prospective customers find what they need. Every campaign should have its own custom landing page that functions as a hub for your lead generation efforts.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at how to build a great landing page that converts.
