Unless you've had your head stuck in an ice-bucket recently, you can't have failed to notice that more and more posts on all channels are driven by visual content. I recently saw a report that stated that posts with images drive traffic 75% than any other type of post. Here are some great tools and tips to help you give your visuals vavoom! . . .

Aaron Curtis's curator insight, September 7, 2014 10:42 PM

Facebook :  Social Media's version of a Wrecking Ball.

Ever since the launch of Facebook, the social powerhouse website has destroyed barriers of all kinds. 

This clipping is bang on in regards to the "LIKE" gate. My view would be the same as the majority of others that have posted their reviews: I agree 100% in destroying that feature. 

When a company sends out their promotions through any social media site, they would be looking for an honest response, not some half whit "LIKE" just for someone else to advance on a game or gain a prize. 

This article shows that the companies want to be recognized for their hard work, not just because their an ad on a mass website. The organizations want a real response, not a forced like. So I say its time to " unleash the Kracken " and let Facebook wipe away all the strings holding back those app developers and have a less cluttered website. 

We want real feedback, not automated feedback.

 

Where are all the real people? If you find one, please share with us your thoughts

Why "Barnacle SEO" Is Making A Big Comeback In Local

Why "Barnacle SEO" Is Making A Big Comeback In Local | JDSMC | Scoop.it
Although I’d heard of “barnacle SEO” as a tactic at some of the early SEO conference networking events, the first real proponent of it in local search was Will Scott. I want to say that Will originally published this post on the now-defunct Local Search News in early 2008; but alas, the original has been […]

Peg Corwin's curator insight, March 29, 2014 7:02 PM

Barnacle SEO is "...optimizing your profiles or business pages on a well-trusted, high-ranking directory and working to promote those profiles instead of — or in tandem with — your own website."


Local directories like Yelp and Angie's List have a strong position in local search by including content that searchers are looking for.


To take advantage of barnacle SEO

 - ID your targets

 - Build great profiles

 - Do build links to it instead of your site.

Is Twitter an effective marketing tool for brands? What sorts of challenges are businesses facing on Twitter? According to a recent survey conducted by SMMU, 40 percent of brands consider Twitter to be an effective marketing tool. Brands face a number of challenges (like building an audience, developing strong content, etc.) using Twitter as a social media marketing tool, with measuring Return-on-Investment being the greatest challenge. In addition, most brands have not used Twitter's paid services. In fact, some brands were unaware that they were available. Among Twitter features being used on a regular basis, Vine remains underutilized, despite the rise in popularity of video marketing.

This is a unique tool for marketers to establish what their consumers interests are. Facebook has been very successful in attracting businesses which are looking to create awareness for their brands. Marketers are able to find insights into the target audiences, what their interests are and create a basis for their market research. This upgrade complicates the idea of Twitter, however marketers and businesses may find it a useful tool.
