Great example of what Prezi can do.

Ian Korman's curator insight, February 3, 2014 3:19 AM

Prezi isn't new but it is still pretty innovative. I recommend using just to stick out from the PowerPoint crowd. You will really stick out if you use it as creatively as they did in this video.

This is a great question for anyone developing an internet presence. It is important to know the strengths and limitations of each. They are not the same and is like comparing a pickup truck to a sedan. Depends on your needs or intended use. Many, if not most, organizations will want and need both.

Reasons Digital Marketing Works | Social Media Today

Reasons Digital Marketing Works | Social Media Today | Communication | Scoop.it

...The reason this digital marketing stuff works for us and not for you is because we place a priority on it. We understand its intrinsic value and we don’t give up. We know which data to analyze and which metrics to watch. We instinctively know when something does or does not work. I hear this comment every single time I speak to groups of CEOs, and it’s typically from the person in the room who is the most vocal about why nothing works in building his or her business.

Three Tips for Effective Content Marketing

Three Tips for Effective Content Marketing | Communication | Scoop.it

Guest blogging is still as effective a tool as any to generate visibility and awareness for your brand website and it’s also a slow, yet efficient method to position your brand in comparison to the competition. However, it’s important to remember that you will want the best content to be uploaded to your very own website. In other words, don’t waste your copywriter’s talents on blog posts for other sites. While these may contain valuable links for your back linking profile and will help boost your writers’ authorship prowess, nothing will generate more of a buzz than good, potentially viral content on your very own site.

 

As all top social media marketing agencies know, nowadays it’s becoming easier than ever to get the ball rolling in terms of virality – and it’s all thanks to social media. It’s almost free and it allows you to target your audience through increasingly refined methods. It’s also an excellent venue for potential client support issues that may arise, departing from a particular piece of content....
