I selected this article from Curatti written by Susan Gilbert because it shows you great tools to help improve your blog, Instagram strategy, and business sales.

 

Reach more customers and readers online with these great resources for business.

 

12 Marketing, Blog, and Business Tools for More Sales

 

With the right tools you can help your bottom line and reach grow. I agree that in order to build a business online it's important to take advantage of what's available.

 

Gilbert provides the best tools to help make your brand stand out on Instagram and your blog.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Pinterest is one of the best social networks to attract buyers and website subscribers. The jQuery Pin It Button highlights your blog images for easy pinning.

 

  • You no longer have to just use a mobile device to manage your Instagram account(s). Grum helps you to schedule your images and posts ahead of time with related hashtags and emojis.

 

  • There are a lot of CRM products out there -- one of the best to check out is from Hubspot. Their free tool helps you to gain valuable insights on your leads and monitor your community.

While you may have learned the symbol for pound as a child, that sign (#) today is called a hashtag.  And in the world of Social Media, it turns any word or phrase into a searchable link.  It is used so that users on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Google Plus can track and join discussions on topics based on hashtagged key words or phrases.

janlgordon's curator insight, August 27, 2014 9:03 AM

I selected this article from Curatti written by Jenn Herman because I'm love Instagram and if you know what you're doing it can be very effective if it's appropiate for your particular business needs.


Hashtags here and on Twitter are a must to keep the conversation going, attract potential customers and/or a following, learn what your competitors are saying and doing........but if you don't use them properly it can work against you.


Here are a few things that caught my attention:


Hashtags

Instagram allows you to use up to 30 hashtags per post. But that doesn’t mean you should be using that many! Depending on your brand and your audience, you will likely find a sweet spot between 5 and 10 hashtags per post.


Using less than 5 hashtags limits the number of searches in which your post will appear. But using too many looks spammish and can annoy your followers.


Use Relevant Keyword Hashtags

Your hashtags should include relevant keywords that are associated with your post. If you sell jewelry, including tags like #gold, #jewelry, #fashion, and #gemstones would be considered relevant.

These should relate directly to the item or content in your post.

Instagram Success: These Types of Images Drive the Most Engagement (Infographic)

Instagram Success: These Types of Images Drive the Most Engagement (Infographic) | Communication design | Scoop.it

A new study unlocks the secrets to what's most shared on the popular social network.

Curalate, a visual analytics and marketing firm, created algorithms to determine how over 30 factors -- including color, lightness and saturation -- affect an Instagram post's performance. The company analyzed more than 8 million images from the photo-sharing platform.

The findings share are some tips to help businesses kick their Instagram presence into high-gear, including:

 

Keep it cool: Photos dominated by blues and other cool colors tend to garner more likes while photos with warmer oranges and reds do worse.

Master monochrome: The more dominant a single color is on an image, the more likes it could get. Pictures dominated by a single hue receive 40 percent more likes than those that don't.

With color, less is more: It can be tempting to ratchet up the vibrancy, flooding your image with color to make it stand out. But in today's overstimulated world, bright and vibrant colors can get lost. The proof is in the data: Curalate says less saturated images receive 18 percent more likes than their mover vibrant counterparts.

Interesting to see what people prefer to see on Instagram and how they like their images to appear.

Blake Hawley's curator insight, November 18, 2013 2:56 PM

A lesson in humility.  The data did not support my own notion of what a "good" instagram photo is.  Proof that data speaks louder than intuition (when you have the data!)....insert duck face.

The Visual Signature of Your City

The Visual Signature of Your City | Communication design | Scoop.it

Social-media platforms like FourSquare and Twitter have been a boon for sociologists and geographers who now have entirely new ways of tracking how we move through cities, where we go, who we are, and even what we think of the world around us. There is one set of social-media platforms, however, that has been tougher to crack for useful data than others: photo-sharing sites.


Their metadata can illustrate where people take photos, and how active they are. But on the whole, how do you aggregate useful data about entire cities and the differences between them from the content of millions of photos on a site like Instagram?

Researchers have been working on this for the past year, and they've just posted some of the initial results from their Phototrails project here.The project is less an exploration of a specific research question, and more a first foray into what we might learn by treating user-generated photography as another source of Big Data.

The title sums this up so well -- as does this: "You could call it Snapchat for adults, a way for brands to post more without overwhelming people’s feeds, an alternative to Instagram’s Like-driven success theater or a blatant ripoff." (Who else thinks it might be the last option in that list?)
