Visual Content Is Shaping the Future of Social Media [Infographic]

Visual Content Is Shaping the Future of Social Media [Infographic] | Digital Brand Marketing |
Visual content is exploding on social media, with sites like Pinterest and Vine leading the charge.

Even Twitter, which started as a place to post short and simple messages, now has images for a more visual experience. Indeed, the future of digital media is upon us — and it’s rich with visual content.

According to an infographic from Oracle, there are five tweets per second that include a Vine link. The acquisitions of Tumblr and Vizify point to an increased interest in interactive media and infographics, with Yahoo investing in visual media.

Social media used to be about text that grabbed consumers attention. Now, its all about the visuals and text doesn't matter as much. According to this article our brains process visuals 60,000 times faster than text. Depending on whom you are targeting, visuals may be the best bet. For example, if you are targeting B2C, you should consider using things such as Vine to grab the consumers attention because they are much more responsive to that. If you are targeting B2B, it is best to stick with text-like options such as Linkedin. When marketing, it is important to take into consideration whom your target market is before you put together a marketing plan. You never know, they may want to see more visuals.

Global trend : the power of visual content

mcgrawmarketing's curator insight, Today, 8:09 AM

You know how much I loathe infographics...but this one was easy to read and made sense.  I would suggest that "All social networks should be considered" but unless you have unlimited resources, you might want to test and prioritize and invest where the greatest return is generated.  (Sorry, I work with firms much smaller than Oracle, about $38 billion, so they tend to have fewer resources.)  ;)

Why Content Marketing Fails Slides via Growth Hackers

Why Content Marketing Fails Slides via Growth Hackers | Digital Brand Marketing |

Excellent and exhaustive punch to the gut of the many "content marketing" myths that exist. I would've added a section on Mark Schaefer's Content Shock, but that 1,000 word post is for another time. Between then (when I write the rejoinder) and now read Rand Fishkin's riff on why "inbound marketing" fails and see if you recognize some of your myths, urban legends and untruths about content marketing.

Love the almost RANDOM case view (see the beard slides) since that journey is so accurate to how journeys start, are sustained and end up in a purchase or subscription.

Also discusses visual marketing tend in a cool way (nope, nope, yes on Google).

How content marketing works?

Get ready for the long, entertaining and highly informative trip. I like the section about "content without a community", a real eye opener.

Design Resources: Web-Based Color Tools

Design Resources: Web-Based Color Tools | Digital Brand Marketing |

One of tne of the most important things designers work with is color. Every element they draw, type, or generate with a computer, gets a color. It is impossible to create anything visual without making color decisions. And to make things harder, estimates of the total number of discernable colors range from one hundred thousand to ten million. Add issues of human perception and color vision deficiency, and you could get a headache doing anything with colors, let alone building a color scale for data.


Luckily, you have some great tools at your disposal to help with color decisions. These tools incorporate different approaches, so each one is good at slightly different things. There are two main classes of tools for dealing with color. The first class is intended to help with design decisions, and the second class covers data driven color scales.
