Video Content Marketing: 4 Elements of An Effective Strategy

Video Content Marketing: 4 Elements of An Effective Strategy | Daseign | Scoop.it

Businesses are flocking to video content marketing as an efficient and wickedly effective content tactic. But the focus on making the video often overshadows the marketing of it. And winning followers on YouTube requires different strategies than doing so through other types of content marketing. 

 

We conducted a YouTube video study of the Top 100 brands from Interbrand’s 2012 Best Global Brands. After analyzing 200,000 business videos across 1,270 YouTube channels, we discovered more than 50 percent had fewer than 1,000 views. ROI fail.

A nice videoscribe  about the difference between fast and slow thinking.  Theres a useful reference to the concept of "priming" which operates out of conscious awareness.  Graphic and visual coaching creates the space for the client to do some slow thinking and resolve challenges that fast thinking hasn't reolved.

Survey Reveals Which Demographics Use What Social Media [INFOGRAPHIC]

Survey Reveals Which Demographics Use What Social Media [INFOGRAPHIC] | Daseign | Scoop.it

A massive survey of internet users reveals trends in social media usage across numerous platforms, ages, races, genders, population density and which social media sites do they frequently visit. 

 

The Pew Research Center has released the results of a comprehensive social media survey, conducted over several years to evaluate which demographics were using social media, and on which platforms. Which social networking sites emerged on top?

 

Of the online adults surveyed at the end of 2012:

67% use Facebook

20% use LinkedIn

16% use Twitter

15% use Pinterest

13% use Instagram

6% use Tumblr

 

A decent amount of Americans appear to be using social media, but which demographics use social media in greater numbers?

 

It appears that women use social media 9% more than men do, at a whopping rate of 71%. Other frontrunners with the highest social network activity in their demographic include city dwellers(70%), Hispanics (72%) and adults with a household income below $30,000 annually (72%).

 

The most pervasive and consistent divider amongst social media users remains, unsurprisingly, their age. 83% of the young adult demographic (18-29 year olds) use social media, which is well over double the activity of online adults over 65 years old (32%).

Interesting but not surprising. I think the older the Gen X-, Gen Y, Millenials and Digital Natives grow, the higher the stats for all ages.

10 Questions to Ask Before Naming Your Business

10 Questions to Ask Before Naming Your Business | Daseign | Scoop.it

What's in a name? When deciding what to call your company, the answer is  plenty. A business  name can be too broad--or too confining. It can be too quirky--or not  memorable enough. The challenge is to pick a name that's catchy, but also fits  well with your particular type of business.

 

Here are 10 questions to ask as you ponder various names, keeping in mind  that the choice could make all the difference in establishing your company in  the marketplace.

The Most Annoying Types of Ads on the Internet #infographic

Pop-up ads, lottery scams, and other types of advertising do more than just interrupt the flow of information online. Respondents to a recent survey on annoying ads have reported losing sleep and even assaulting their hardware after reading yet another email from a pen pal in a foreign land who needs them to transfer some money.

Although a greater number of Americans (60 percent) are annoyed by television commercials than internet ads, the newer medium is on the rise, with 55 percent who are finding annoying ads in their inboxes and 37 percent who say they are happening on social media.

The most offensive kinds are:

Pop-up ads – 70%Lottery scams – 70%Male enhancement ads – 66%Emails from deceased African leaders who have left them money – 64%Ads for products and services they do not need – 58%Female enhancement ads – 54%

Mirko D'Isidoro - FreelanceWebDesigner.it's curator insight, February 27, 2013 4:15 AM

Il nuovo LinkedIN Resume Builder è una fantastica web app che ti permette con un account LinkedIn di creare curriculum dall'aspetto professionale, scegliendo tra una serie di modelli già pronti.
 

Quest'applicazione prende i dati dal tuo account LinkedIn per estrarre e classificare tutte le informazioni del profilo.

 

Quando inizi ad usarlo, hai la possibilità di editare e modificare uno qualsiasi dei dati che appariranno nel curriculum finale e puoi personalizzare anche i campi pre-impostati che verrano visualizzati.
 

Ci sono circa una dozzina di modelli diversi tra cui scegliere, e la mia prima impressione è che sembrano tutti abbastanza buoni.
 

Il tuo nuovo curriculum può essere condiviso su tutti i principali media sociali e tramite un URL diretto, e può anche essere salvato ed esportato in formato PDF.
 

Trovo Resume Builder di LinkedIn un ottimo strumento per creare un curriculum aggiornato e dall'aspetto professionale, in una manciata di secondi.
 

PS: Ci possono essere alcuni problemi d'impaginazione, come vedrai durante l'esportazione in PDF, ma questi possono essere aggirati facilmente.

Sono sicuro che ci saranno miglioramenti con aggiornamenti futuri.
