4 Easy Tricks to Personalize Your Marketing Strategy | Internet Presence | Scoop.it

As a seasoned marketer, you’re well-aware of the need to ‘reach the right audiences at the right time with the right message.’ You’ve heard this expression over and over — so we won’t belabor the point.

You already know why you need to do it. The problem is that you’re part of a small team and that there are only 24 hours in a day. Presumably (read: hopefully), you spend some of that time sleeping and having fun.

You need an arsenal of high-impact tactics — stuff that’s creative, easy to implement, and pilot-tested by others in your field. That’s where this blog post comes in — to give you some quick, ready-to-execute ideas.

How to Create Visual Content with this Simple, Dirt Cheap Tool

How to Create Visual Content with this Simple, Dirt Cheap Tool | Internet Presence | Scoop.it

Working with Canva.Canva is a simplified and streamlined, online-only image creation tool that gives even non-designers the ability to quickly and easily create simple yet attractive images.

Out with the old

Historically, the best visual content had to be created by highly skilled professionals. Image design required the use of massively complex suites of tools that had virtually unlimited options and features, but steep learning curves. This was great for the most imaginative of visual artists, but for the rest of us design mortals, the concept of unfettered freedom often paralyzed our productivity: There were just too many options, too many tools to master, and too many possible directions we could go in. Inevitably, we would get bogged down in the decision process and fail to move into the actual creation phase.

In with the new

Thankfully, a new class of tools is emerging that offers a simpler, leaner approach to creating visual content. While these tools still enable marketers to design compelling and powerful visual content, they streamline the creation process and set tighter parameters so creators don’t get as overwhelmed.

Mapping The Internet

Mapping The Internet | Internet Presence | Scoop.it

The internet is a worldwide network of computers, but it seems very intangible to most of us. In a general sense, the internet is made up of a lot of different components: Websites, users, servers, browsers, networking cables, and more. Some of these things have a physical component, and some of them do not, but even the ones that do have a physical component can be hard to conceptualize spatially. These maps help to lend that spatial component to the Internet.

But constantly churning out visual content presents a challenge: you need to find meaningful data to fuel that content and, more importantly, you need to find stories within that data that tie into your brand’s values and strategic goals.

Top 12 Free Image Sites

Top 12 Free Image Sites | Internet Presence | Scoop.it
One of the best visual techniques in capturing your users' attention is the use of images on your site. They are especially useful to bring a point across, beautify the website and enhance articles...

There are many stock free image sites on the web where you can purchase such images for reasonable prices. However, there are also many sites that let you download such high quality images free-of-charge. Find the best selection the internet has to offer:

1. StockFreeImages– This site belongs to Dreamstime.com and used to be in their free section. In March of 2012, all of the images were ported over to this current site. The images from this site alone has saved me thousands of dollars as I have literally used hundreds of their images for my niche sites. You will need to register one time in order to download and it has a liberal attribution policy (only required where possible). They currently have more than half a million large high-quality images (yes, you read that correctly, it is more than 570K images) for free download. If there is only one site you can choose, you definitely will not go wrong with StockFreeImages.com

2. stock.xchng – This is one of the most well-known and popular site on the internet that has a large collection of free-to-use stock photos. Currently has almost 400K free images to choose from. Registration is a must to use the photos and attribution does not seem to be required at the moment.

3. FreeDigitalPhotos.net – This site has plenty of images that are pretty original and it a very good site to source for new ones. Registration and attribution are required in order to download and use the images. The images, although smaller than most, are still great alternatives to the other sites.

Marc Kneepkens's insight:

This is a great collection of free sites for downloading images. Even some pay sites too, but with great discounts and pricing. Thanks.

Be careful though and always read their terms and conditions. Don't get tricked into using free images and not following the conditions (listing credentials for example in some cases).
