GREAT Haiku Deck by Harris (@OptimizePrime). So good its no wonder it has over 50,000 views. What makes it great is how well it understands the "we are all media companies" now riff I laid down in Red Bull Branding Lessons on Curatti (http://curatti.com/red-bulls-branding-lesson-media-companies-now/ ).

The "new seo" and "everyone is a media company" work nicely together. Great and INSIGHTFUL deck by a new trusted SEO source for me.

3. People don't BUY brands, they FOLLOW them. 

Today’s social media revolution is about engagement and content - the consumer is generating content, sharing, distributing, and being the medium.

 Advertising told stories - social media is about getting others to tell stories for us.

David Swaddle's curator insight, August 31, 7:28 PM

This article got me thinking. It's about transitions in user interface design with some very nice animated examples.

 

Are the transitions shown here useful in a learning context, or are they merely window dressing that detracts from learnability? Personally, I think that while they look nice the first time, most of these transitions become annoying with time, simply delaying users. Mayer and others have shown how eye-candy can often be detrimental to learning.

 

Is it time for some generous academic to re-evaluate the situation in light of recent UX designs, preferably in a corporate setting? Or, maybe somebody already has and some kind soul could post here and point me in the right direction?

Brand advocates blend the strengths of a connector and a maven, 

  • a source of reliable information.  
  • ready to create content that influences a purchase.

Great mobile / social Tips Scooped by Brian Yanish (@MarketingHits) including:


* Resize your Facebook posts No bigger than 620 x 320

* Choose Facebook Ads wisely

* Make it visual

* Turn up the content

* Get smart about couponing

* Take advantage of Twitter

* Upload to Instagram

* Utilize Email Marketing

My favorite is getting smart about couponing as that tip can make a real difference to your bottom line especially at this time of year.


Be careful not to have "battling coupons" where one deal wipes out another an check coupon websites like Retail Me Not to make sure they are up to date and don't have old coupon codes that don't work anymore since there is nothing more frustrating than trying to get a deal that is dead.


Joachim Scholz, PhD's curator insight, December 2, 2013 9:24 AM

The first phase of the trend towards mobile is in full swing, and it is time to adapt your marketing strategies for it. Resizing facebook ads, making it more visual and so on are the obvious things to think about, but there is also a second revoultion wrapped in the first: The move to (mobile) content marketing.

 

To oversimplify: Consumers watch big screens, but they touch small ones!

 

So the marketing communications you put on consumers' phone screens needs to be much more content oriented, something your consumers will voluntarily seek out. Being a service star in getting consumers the right coupon is a first thing to do, but also add levels of engagement and play. Coke did a great example during the London Olympic Games (on Marketing in Motion, use the Find buttom) for which they created a music DJ/mixing app that allowed consumers to build their own soundtrack to the games and send it to their friends.

Great share by +Tim McLain that should be read by ALL #marketing pros for its #socialmobile implications. Mobile is SO MUCH MORE than making information look good on a #smartphone .

As we were building http://www.curagami.com I got that strange feeling you get when you take a wrong turn. About halfway in you realize something isn't quite right. If we could do our first attempts at creating a #gamified #contentmarketing engine for #ecommerce over (and we can and will) I would have gone #mobilefirstdesign .

There are many ways Mobile First changes your process and product including:

* More likely to limit functionality (cuts down on superfluous bells and whistles).
* Flatten the design.
* Limit the color palette.
* Change the #informationarchitecture (from long form to combined snippets).
* More social.
* More gamified (phones are game consoles).

What is true for car dealers is true for all #webmarketing - Mobile is HERE and we best get used to it and embrace this revolution as it picks up speed and fury.

(From the article): Content Marketing is a tricky idea. You need to create authoritative content, but just enough that community is forming comfortably. Talk to much, in the wrong voice or at the wrong time sand you kill your fledgling community (easy to do).

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).
