Ally Greer's curator insight, August 14, 2013 1:02 PM

Stanford Smith has a point: most bloggers do have a secret love affair with their sidebar. After some research and testing, though, it's pretty clear that they're the only ones. Blog readers aren't looking to be sold to, whether you're selling your blog archives, a subscription, other people's content, or an old fashioned advertisement. As humans in the 21st century, we've trained ourselves to ignore these types of things without even having to think about it.


Take a peek at the image above: the highlighted areas are the ones where readers spent their time, and the green outlined areas are where extra sidebar-esque content lived on the site tested.


When providing content to your readers, just get down to business. Provide quality and exceed their expectations - spend more of your time on that and less of your time on the sidebar and other parts of the page you're including mostly to please yourself.


This post also includes some interesting alternative actions you can take to achieve some of the things you might have been attempting with your sidebar content.

The Inside and Outside View of Innovation

The Inside and Outside View of Innovation | future business | Scoop.it

 

How can companies ensure that a promising initiative receives the necessary resources? And why do so many brilliant inventions fail while other seemingly mediocre offerings succeed? Such questions are addressed in two recent books — Unrelenting Innovation: How to Build a Culture for Market Dominance, by Gerard J. Tellis and The Wide Lens: A New Strategy for Innovation, by Ron Adner. The first book concentrates on a company’s internal workings, while the latter focuses on its external environment.

 

In Unrelenting Innovation, Tellis asserts that the single most important driver of innovation in any organization is its culture, and he cites three organizational traits important for innovation: a willingness to cannibalize existing products, a risk-taking attitude and the ability to focus on the future. Many companies have a hard time commercializing radical innovations, Tellis notes, because these would hurt the company’s existing products. To counter such tendencies, Tellis offers three practices: providing the right incentives, fostering internal markets and empowering “innovation champions” within the organization.

8 Questions To Help You Define Your Content Strategy - Business 2 Community | future business | Scoop.it

...The latest research from the Content Marketing Institute showed us that everyone is creating content and yet only about a third of us have a document content strategy. We’re struggling to rise above the marketplace noise and we need a plan to get there. So, we have all have a content problem, whether we have accepted it or not. We need to create more of the kind of content our customers are looking for and less of the stuff no one reads, or acts upon. Are you looking to define your content strategy?
