How Can Pinterest Help You In Your Lifestyle Business

How Can Pinterest Help You In Your Lifestyle Business | Digital Media | Scoop.it

If you plan to start a lifestyle business because you are more interested in exploring and celebrating your personal passions than you are in chasing investors, then you should already be well aware of the value and impact that social media marketing can have on your bottom line.

 

There are a number of social media sites that stand ready to help you gain exposure, interest, and eventually, more business. But, not every type of business needs to set up shop on every social media site.

 

For example, if yours will be a business that relies on a lot of visuals, such as an art gallery owner or home decorator, then you will want to invest some time in setting up a social media account on Pinterest....

6 free visual marketing tools

6 free visual marketing tools | Digital Media | Scoop.it

This lack of artistic ability poses a threat to my marketing career, especially now that visual content marketing is the ticket to success. Even though I have other creative traits, I'm worried I'll get left in the visual storytelling dust.


I know I'm not alone.

 

Luckily, we non-artists have a few tools to mask our lack of design talent.

 

These tools are free, but often have advanced paid features for when you're ready to step up your game. They don't replace a designer's expertise, but you can use them for smaller projects, like blogs, social media graphics, or Slideshare templates....

Wisdom in the Age of Information and the Importance of Storytelling in Making Sense of the World: An Animated Essay

Wisdom in the Age of Information and the Importance of Storytelling in Making Sense of the World: An Animated Essay | Digital Media | Scoop.it

For my part in the 2014 Future of Storytelling Summit, I had the pleasure of collaborating with animator Drew Christie — the talent behind that wonderful short film about Mark Twain and the myth of originality — on an animated essay that I wrote and narrated, exploring a subject close to my heart and mind: the question of how we can cultivate true wisdom in the age of information and why great storytellers matter more than ever in helping us make sense of an increasingly complex world. It comes as an organic extension of the seven most important life-learnings from the first seven years of Brain Pickings. Full essay text below — please enjoy.
