Iron Dane Richards's comment, September 26, 2013 10:12 AM
Its a shame that we have so much internet identity theft in this digital age. One solution I highly recommend to many of our clients is the use of prepaid debit cards in order to minimize potential loss with like a Walmart, Netspend or Bancorp Prepaid Visa or Mastercard for online purchases and link that even further through a paypal debit card. Our website has links to business cards also http://ironsolutionsgroup.com/business-credit-cards/

Thanks for Scooping this Cendrine. I've been a big fan of Yahoo Answers, but over the past couple of years it has been hard to be a fan because the site - which has a lot of potential - has gone into neglect. I'll be looking to see what they've done to "revive" it.

Emilie Faffe's curator insight, September 24, 2013 4:29 AM

Le content marketing n'est pas (ne doit pas être) :

 

- Trop promotionnel

- Trop orienté sur l'entreprise (mais vers le client / prospect)

- Cher 

- Un projet (mais une opération notion de continuité)

- Trop uniforme (mais orienté selon les cibles et le cycle de vie de leur processus de décision)

- Le travail du service marketing uniquement (tous les services doivent être mis à contribution, surtout dans des domaines pointus)

- Un blog (le blog est un canal de diffusion, il en existe d'autres)

- Une communication à sens unique (mais il faut encourager l'interaction)

- Pauvre (mais riche et intéressant, il faut identifier les attente des cibles en matière d'info)

- Difficile à partager

Why Online Video is Beating Social Media

Why Online Video is Beating Social Media | Digital Brand Marketing | Scoop.it

...Unlike social media, there’s an immediate emotional connection with video. It touches our senses. And that's a big reason why video is beating social media.

 

As the Manta Small Business Wellness Index showed, over 60% say they “don’t see any ROI” on their social-media activities. That’s a lot.

 

Regardless of why business owners say they see no ROI (return on investment), it’s forced them to seek an alternative – and that alternative is video.

 

Video is Beating Social for Emotional Reasons

 

The shift from social media to video is not surprising for another big, fundamental reason. Every business owner, manager and marketing director in the universe wants to know what they’re getting for their marketing dollar. Even if they fully realize there’s no guarantee on ROI, they want to know what “the deliverable” is. With social media, that’s hard to grasp. With video, it’s not. With video you see what you’re getting and, if it’s done right, you get excited by it.

 

Unlike social media, there’s an immediate emotional connection. It touches our senses. And, when it does that to us, we have no reason not to believe it’ll do the same to the people we’re trying reach....

James Carson on SmartInsights outlines the value of adopting a story to be more effective in selling your brand, products or services. He specifically points to a specific story plot generally known as the "hero's journey".


This is a story pattern that can be found in tens of popular stories around 

the world.


From Homer's Odissey to Star Wars you can see the same story pattern at work.


You "can use this kind of story arc in a content marketing strategy through switching the protagonist with the customer, and then offer mentorship through the content, and the promise of reward (or quest completion) from the product."


Useful. 8/10

I include this is the ServingExperience collection because a company that exists, follows and thrives upon the ServingExperience way will have a story, and stories that are sincere and true (essential for them to work for a company) and these will also (need to) be truly embraced from CEO to kitchen towel supply supervisor - then and only then does story, brand and reputation float on the high seas of the marketplace.

Danny Sullivan reports on SearchEngineLand about the recent quiet change by Google aimed a encryprinting all users search activity.


"Google says this has been done to provide “extra protection” for searchers, and the company may be aiming to block NSA spying activity. Possibly, it’s a move to increase ad sales."


What's the truth? No-one is really sure at the moment, but if you want to find out exactly why this is quite relevant to independent publishers and - better yet - how to still access and archive most of those keywords, read the rest of this good article.

How Video Plays a Crucial Role in the Rise of Content Marketing | Digital Brand Marketing | Scoop.it

Content - Video appeared on the scene so suddenly that marketers are still learning how to use it effectively. Here's a look at three forces shaping the evolution of content marketing...

 

In this article you'll learn…

- Why it's important to include video content for C-Suite buyers

- How video analytics help you continually improve video content

- Why video is the rising star for content marketing ROI.

 

"The next big thing in content marketing is video," Justabout Everyone, Company ABC.

 

Ican't credit that "quote" to anyone in particular because it's been said by so many, from those in online media to B2B marketers. The truth is... as much as marketers love surveys and trend data, sometimes it's just blatantly clear that something is upon us. Enter video.

 

But, knowing hasn't yet translated into doing. Most folks are stuck. Video appeared on the scene so suddenly that marketers are still learning how to use it effectively. It's a black box. But it's time to crack it open....
