The Psychology of Cults - All In The Mind - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) | hidemyass | Scoop.it

Podcast from RadioNational Australia.

 

If you sign up to a weekend personal development workshop, you don’t really expect to emerge 10 years later a shadow of your former emotional self. What sets many groups apart from what we regard as cults is a range of powerful psychological techniques which can be difficult to see through—particularly if you are at a vulnerable time of your life. We hear the story of one woman’s escape from a cult and some insights into those persuasive techniques

Content Curation your secret weapon - Drive Traffic & Find New Customers

Content Curation your secret weapon - Drive Traffic & Find New Customers | hidemyass | Scoop.it
Using Content Curation To Find New Customers.

 

Being an Internet marketer for many years I’ve seen the landscape change many times but one thing has stayed the same “Content is King”, when it comes to driving traffic to a website.

 

As a business owner we all want to get new customers to our websites. Many have tried blogging to drive traffic to their website and due to a shortage of hours in a day they end up dropping the blog or hiring ghost writers to develop content for the site. We now have a new player on the net and it comes in the form of Content Curation. No it will not completely eliminate business owners creating content for their website but adds a whole new area of content development for a website.

 

Over the past two years I’ve tested different content curation sites and tools and have found Scoop.it to be the leader in both innovation and traffic building potential.

 

Below are examples on how Scoop.it can drive traffic and help to show the world, yes the world that your business knows your market.

 

In this article are 3 areas that when done correctly can drive new traffic to your business or brand.

 

*** If you would like help setting up a Scoop.it traffic generator for your company. Contact Brian at 1-888-535-9139 or Email Me ideas@marketinghits.com ***

Insights Into the Hot Trend of Social Media Content Curation

Insights Into the Hot Trend of Social Media Content Curation | hidemyass | Scoop.it

In the guest post published by Jeff Bullas' blog, Intervistato.com's Maria Petrescu interviews Scoop.it's co-founder Marc Rougier after giving her own insights on why curation is a much needed trend.

 

"Online content curation is a hot trend as business owners and professionals realize that content is vital to add value to their customers and prospects. The trend was already evident in 2011 but 2012 saw an outright explosion of the phenomenon. Also important is delivering and sharing that content on your social media networks." she writes.

 

She comes back with Marc on the background behind Scoop.it: "The founders were literally in love with social media, but had no time to produce content. They had already been working on another platform, where they published content organized in topics. People loved it, but after a while they felt the growing need of getting content that was more specific, based on their single interests."

 

Plus other interesting insights and a video of the interview. Check it out!

The Best Apps For Reading Ebooks on the iPad for Power Readers | Digital Book World

The Best Apps For Reading Ebooks on the iPad for Power Readers | Digital Book World | hidemyass | Scoop.it

Admittedly, most reading apps will do the job. They’ll let me read the book on my tablet. But I like a little more than just your basic level of functionality. Trying to narrow down what is important is hard; a lot of it is just the feel of the app. But the main things that I care about as a heavy reader are a good user interface (the page on the screen looks nice, also referred to as UI), how progress is marked (a slider, percent, page number), and how bookmarks and notes work. That might not be where everyone’s priorities are, but that’s most of what I want to know. Of course, other features enter into the recipe of what makes a great e-reading app, especially the special features of some apps, but they’re icing on the cake.

As if people who are blind or have low vision are the only users with disabilities having difficulties using websites. What about people with other disabilities? It is not the first time when an organization or an individual talks about web accessibility as something only for blind users.
