The Viral Power of Storytelling in Content Marketing

The Viral Power of Storytelling in Content Marketing | daily news of the world | Scoop.it

In the dark-dark city, on the dark-dark street, in the dark-dark office, there was one dark-dark company, but no one knew about it because the company couldn’t tell people about itself…


Modern information consumers want more than just data. People of this generation are used to getting accessible news, ideas, information, and knowledge; they know the tricks and cannot stand importunate marketing. The more promotional lines they see in a text, the faster they stop reading it. That is why storytelling is a great idea for any marketing campaign.


People love stories. They are thrilled to read about something similar to what they’ve experienced, to delve into one’s dirty laundry, to see love stories, etc. Storytelling can be a very powerful tool for content creators. They can influence people’s emotions and get those precious likes and shares....

Disney World To Launch 300-Drone Light Show

Disney World To Launch 300-Drone Light Show | daily news of the world | Scoop.it

The Internet of Things is not only a land-based phenomenon, but major brands are looking to use hundreds of drones at a time to produce messaging in one form or another.

 

Think interactive, flying billboards.

 

Earlier this month, Intel showed its video of 500 drones flying in formation at night in Germany. The LED lights on the drones spelled out the word ‘Intel.’

 

That was the first known example of a mass of hundreds of drones being used to portray a company logo in the sky at night.

 

A version of that drone light show is now moving to Walt Disney World in Orlando....

5 Trends From the Floor Of The 2016 New York Coffee Festival

5 Trends From the Floor Of The 2016 New York Coffee Festival | daily news of the world | Scoop.it

This weekend in New York City, the second annual New York Coffee Festival hit the ground running: this time, with more roasters, gear-heads, and unusual twists on coffee than ever.

Unlike industry events that draw in prospective cafe owners with hopes of selling them giant gelato machines, the New York Coffee Festival keeps the focus on plying local aficionados with espresso martinis and entertainment, from live music to the annual Coffee Masters tournament.

We took a spin around the festival to pin down the 2016 festival’s top trends.

Black Friday is dying a slow death

Black Friday is dying a slow death | daily news of the world | Scoop.it

Black Friday is losing its relevancy to US shoppers. The holiday, which takes place the day after Thanksgiving, has historically been the biggest shopping day of the year in the US.

 

But over the last several years, shopper traffic in stores on Black Friday has been falling with many retailers like Walmart, Target, and Amazon kicking off their holiday discounts online several weeks in advance.

 

Foot traffic in stores this year is expected to fall by about 3.5% on Black Friday compared to last year, according to data from the location tracking service Foursquare....

Why WordPress Isn't Scared of Facebook, Snapchat, or the Future of Publishing

Why WordPress Isn't Scared of Facebook, Snapchat, or the Future of Publishing | daily news of the world | Scoop.it

The real conversation for media companies, according to Hernandez, isn’t about websites and apps. It’s about audience and control.

 

Platforms like Facebook need the content—otherwise, they wouldn’t be courting publishers to the tune of millions of dollars. Publications need the targeted distribution those platforms can provide, especially since almost half of Americans regularly get their news from social media.

 

It’s a symbiotic relationship, not a zero-sum game. “Empires rise and fall,” Hernandez said repeatedly throughout our conversation. “No matter which empire or brand or platform is rising, it will eventually fall. But journalism will be a constant.”

 

Look at Twitter, which has mainstream cultural relevance but struggles bring in ad revenue and compete with other major social networks. That’s why it killed off its video platform Vine in late October (R.I.P., Vine—you’ve given us some great times).

 

Or look at Facebook, the largest social network in the world, which remains incredibly valuable and influential, but has started to take on a lot of criticism about political censorship, fake news stories, and inflated video engagement data. “The influence of Facebook, you can see cracks in it as Snapchat has started to amplify,” Hernandez offered. “Empires rise and fall. And who knows what’s next?”...

Empires rise and fall. So even though social platforms are powerful right now, WordPress is confident that the website has staying power.

Andy Bull's curator insight, November 21, 2:16 PM
Key is how well Wordpress lets journalists/publishers who create on the platform integrate the distribution of that content to Facebook, Snapchat and whatever other platforms emerge in the future.
