Print ads were once the standard format for creative advertising. But as more and more advertising dollars are allocated to digital outlets, print advertising is seen as an expensive, untrackable, traditional media format.You would think the category is void of innovative ideas, but that’s certainly not the case. In fact, many brands are finding new ways to merge the digital and physical world through magazine and newspaper ads. Here are 15 print ads that should make you rethink the word "traditional."...

“You’re going to start hearing a lot more about Vine in the coming months. As the most micro of the popular micro-video platforms, Vine is poised to become a vibrant space for brands, influencers, and consumers to connect in meaningful (albeit bite-sized) ways.Earlier this week, Twitter announced the acquisition of Niche, a platform which provides analytics and a connection to brands for leading Vine content creators. The acquisition signals that Twitter is going to invest more of its attention to Vine, and continue to grow it as online video surges in popularity.”

Vine se développe rapidement. Cette plateforme qui appartient à Twitter et qui permet de diffuser des vidéos de 6 secondes semble promise à un bel avenir. 6 secondes, c'est court et ça permet de faire passer un message beaucoup plus riche avec une vidéo qu'avec une photo. Parions sur le fait qu'un nouveau style de vidéo va se développer pour optimiser cette durée de 6 secondes.

janlgordon's curator insight, August 27, 2014 9:03 AM

I selected this article from Curatti written by Jenn Herman because I'm love Instagram and if you know what you're doing it can be very effective if it's appropiate for your particular business needs.


Hashtags here and on Twitter are a must to keep the conversation going, attract potential customers and/or a following, learn what your competitors are saying and doing........but if you don't use them properly it can work against you.


Here are a few things that caught my attention:


Hashtags

Instagram allows you to use up to 30 hashtags per post. But that doesn’t mean you should be using that many! Depending on your brand and your audience, you will likely find a sweet spot between 5 and 10 hashtags per post.


Using less than 5 hashtags limits the number of searches in which your post will appear. But using too many looks spammish and can annoy your followers.


Use Relevant Keyword Hashtags

Your hashtags should include relevant keywords that are associated with your post. If you sell jewelry, including tags like #gold, #jewelry, #fashion, and #gemstones would be considered relevant.

These should relate directly to the item or content in your post.

Digital Literacy is Good, but Fluency is Better | The Atlantic

Digital Literacy is Good, but Fluency is Better | The Atlantic | Design | Scoop.it
In their new book, Digital Fluency: Building Success in the Digital Age, Christian Briggs and Kevin Makice offer a roadmap to digital fluency for individuals and organizations. So what's the difference between digital literacy and digital fluency? According to Briggs and Makice, literacy means you know what tools to use and how to use them, while fluency means you also know when and why to use them. They also offer this core definition: "Digital fluency is the ability to reliably achieve desired outcomes through use of digital technology." Under this definition, fluency also includes the ability to choose the right tools and use multiple tools in combination. The distinction between literacy and fluency is a very useful framework for thinking about how to survive and thrive in the digital age, and the concept of digital fluency has also been explored by Mitchel Resnick, professor of learning research at the MIT Media Lab. In a 2002 report, Resnick offered the analogy to learning a foreign language: Click headline to read more--

Revealing Joomla’s SEO Secrets - Redirect Manager (com_redirect) | Design | Scoop.it
One of the hidden gems which appeared with the 1.6 version of Joomla is the Redirect Manager - a simple system which allows you to identify and fix broken links. Before the Redirect Manager was introduced, the only way to find and fix broken URLs was to use a third party extension, an SEO scraper such as Screaming Frog, or looking in your server logs. Now it's possible to identify and manage broken links within the administrator panel of your Joomla website.
