Each layout is different, and there are no magic numbers that will work every time. Instead, we have to nail down the relationships between elements, and then let the specifics take care of themselves.
This Infographic by Symphony Teleca shows that consumers rely on peer recommendations: Links to user-generated content on social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Google +, Pinterest) make up a quarter of the search results for the top 20 brands in the world.
In response to that growing number, 85 % of people have already anticipated changes in their buying behavior.
Customer reviews, questions and answers, internet forums and user-generated videos are the social and community tools that influence consumers the most.
This Infographic also shows how mobile devices, real-time access to review sites and social networks impact consumers’ buying decisions and overall retail experience.
167 million people will shop online this year, spending an average of $1,800 per person, it reveals.
Unsurprisingly, shoppers are using their smartphones to look for sales and special deals, as well as read product reviews and ratings.
64% of smartphone owners shop online using their devices;
40% of Twitter users say they search for products on the microblogging tool; and
60% of Facebook users say they would discuss a product or service if they were offered a discount
It also breaks down how companies such as Walmart and Starbucks are using social networks to engage shoppers. It also looks at how businesses are using mobile point of sale (POS) transactions to get insight into consumer data, sales records and inventory.
SEO has been declared “dead” almost from when it first began, as our post from a few years ago, Is SEO Dead? 1997 Prediction, Meet 2009 Reality, covers. Now, a new infographic is out looking at how SEO has been “dying” over the years.
Do you prefer a PC or Mac (I'll use PC) or do you prefer and iPad or Nexus (I'll use tablet) or do you prefer your iPhone or Samsung Galaxy (I'll use phone)? (N.B. Tablet and phone together I'll call mobile)...
The signals Google uses are numerous and fluid. With over 200 signals used to rank a website, it's about balance. Chase one signal (like that little green bar) and you'll never have a balanced SEO strategy that will withstand the test of time.
Make smarter online video ad buys and view channel statistics on the widest range of online videos.
OpenSlate released findings about the top 1000 YouTube Channels; measuring top channels metrics around Engagement, Consistency and Influence and ranks who the top are by category.
The findings show that in 30 days the top 1000 channels produce 30,000 videos - totaling 173 days of viewing time- that generate roughly 11.3 billion views.
The study also looked at the Top 1000's social engagement, and found that the average Top 1000 channel generates 44,000 social interactions on Facebook each week.
As the Infographic illustrates, music and gaming dominate the ranks of popular channels on YouTube, accounting collectively for 45% of the 1,000 most-viewed. Comedy (14%), entertainment (13%), and How-to & Style (7%) round out the top five categories.
The top 1,000 channels generate an average of $23,000 each month from YouTube ads alone. That’s not including the many sponsorships and product endorsements channel managers sign themselves.
Here’s a question you may not hear at all in 2017: “Did you get my fax?”
LinkedIn surveyed more than 7,000 global professionals about which tools and trends will disappear from offices in the next five years and which will become even more common. Nearly three quarters of those surveyed said they expected fax machines to disappear, making it the second most likely office technology to go extinct behind tape recorders.
Other once common office tools like the Rolodex, desk phones and even desktop computers ranked high on the list of items likely to become obsolete in the workplace. Meanwhile, more than half of professionals surveyed (55%) believe that tablets will become increasingly common in the office, the most of any technology on the list. Laptops also ranked high, with 34% of those surveyed predicting it would become more common.
The survey is just the latest example that workplaces are gradually abandoning analog technologies for digital. Those in the workforce will need to adapt to these changes or else risk having technological skills that are obsolete as well.
While it’s unlikely many workers will mourn the loss of the fax machine, some may be more nostalgic for other vanishing fixtures of office life like the Rolodex or business cards (which ranked 12th on the list.)
Here are the top 10 office tools and trends that professionals think will vanish in the next five years:
1. Tape recorders (79 percent) 2. Fax machines (71 percent) 3. The Rolodex (58 percent) 4. Standard working hours (57 percent) 5. Desk phones (35 percent) 6. Desktop computers (34 percent) 7. Formal business attire like suits, ties, pantyhose, etc. (27 percent) 8. The corner office for managers/executives (21 percent) 9. Cubicles (19 percent) 10. USB thumb drives (17 percent)
